Claude is a lazy rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+ he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, in which Claude could be received through DLC. His phrase, "hopalong," relates to the nature of rabbits to hop.

In New Horizons, Claude has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Claude from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Claude is a brown rabbit with lazy eyes that are white with black pupils. He has a tan muzzle and paw tips, and a dark brown swirl on his forehead where his eyebrows would usually be. His inner ears are light blue, and he has a black nose.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Claude has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Claude goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.
