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.

Similarity to Porter[edit]

This section contains unconfirmed information or speculation.
Fans have speculated that Champ is actually Porter, due to their nearly identical appearances and shared interest in trains. Champ has only appeared in games where Porter is absent, and vice versa. However, Animal Crossing Plaza reveals that Porter's birthday is April 17th, whereas Champ's birthday is June 4th, thus disproving that they are the same individual.

Another possibility is that Champ is related to Porter. A second monkey is seen as the train's engineer in Animal Crossing and happens to share the same model as Porter. Porter's e-Reader card description indicates that this monkey is Porter's brother and that they are rumored to occasionally switch places. This second monkey is not named, so it is unclear whether or not he is intended to be the same individual as Champ.
