Champ is a jock, monkey villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World. His name comes from the word "champion", which goes with the jock personality.

Champ was not present in Animal Crossing: New Leaf nor did he return in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo or Animal Crossing: New Horizons, making him the only non-guest villager who did not debut in any version of the original game to be cut entirely from a mainline installment.

Champ is a small, brown monkey very similar in appearance to Porter, a monkey that runs the Train Station in Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In Animal Crossing: Wild World (as well as the movie), he lacks the point of fur on the top of his head.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.

He is a jock and enjoys surfing. Champ is great to be around, he always lightens the atmosphere. He is a true joker, but also can be serious in some situations. He is happy with almost anything. He is always working out or lifting weights. His catchphrase is the onomatopoeia of a train's whistle and a possible reference to the Porter's occupation.

Champ also appears in the movie with the name Saruo, although he had very few lines. He is always working out, jogging, or lifting weights. He always seems to be running around saying "ukki", which is described as monkey noises.


This section contains unconfirmed information and fan speculation.

Many fans have speculated that Champ is Porter, due to their nearly identical appearances and Champ's interest in trains. Champ also does not appear in any of the same games Porter does, and vice versa. This was disproven in the Wii U app Animal Crossing Plaza, which reveals that Porter's birthday is April 17th, whereas Champ's birthday was June 4th.

It could also be possible that Champ is Porter's brother. This is supported by the fact that when entering the town for the first time, it is possible to see both the engineer and Porter at the same time, who both share the same model. Another fact that supports this is with Porter's e-reader card description, which states that Porter and his brother are rumored to occasionally switch places engineering the train.

Theories end here.
