Copper, also known as Officer Copper,[nb 4] is a dog in the Animal Crossing series. He works as a police officer in Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and as a guard in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. He works alongside Booker in all games except New Leaf. His name comes from the word copper, a slang term for a police officer.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Copper is a brown dog with a white muzzle and paws. He resembles the Akita, the national dog of Japan. In Animal Crossing and New Leaf, he wears a blue police officer uniform, cap, and badge, and in Wild World and City Folk, he wears a red guard uniform and a teal helmet.

Personality[edit]

Copper is confident and hard-working, taking pride in his duty as a police officer or guard. He prides early risers and warns the player to be careful when wandering around at night. He is also athletic, exercising on the job and hosting the morning aerobics in Animal Crossing. This contrasts with Booker's timid personality.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

Copper speaking to the player outside the police station in Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, Copper works outside the police station and will inform the player of upcoming and current events or visitors. From 6 AM to 7 AM from July 25 to August 31, Copper hosts the morning aerobics, instructing the player, villagers, and Tortimer with various exercises. He can also be seen exercising at the police station from 5 AM to 6 AM.

Copper may be asleep outside the police station at night, and the player can wake him up by speaking to him.

In Wild World and City Folk[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, Copper stands opposite of Booker inside the checkpoint. He can allow the player to visit other towns, open and close the gate, and be assigned a Friend Code.

In New Leaf[edit]

Copper speaking to the player in the police station in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Copper works inside the police station, operating the lost and found. He only appears if the modern police station public works project is built, as Booker works in the classic police station.

In the Welcome amiibo update, Copper can appear in his RV at the Campground at random if the modern police station is not built.

In New Horizons[edit]

Copper's Poster in New Horizons

Following the version 2.0 update in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Copper can appear as a customer at The Roost. He will always be joined by Booker. He can also be invited to Photopia via his amiibo, after which Copper's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping.

Other appearances[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Copper can sometimes be seen in the background of the Smashville stage. Copper also appears alongside Booker as a trophy and a sticker in this game as part of the Animal Crossing series.

Copper & Booker

Description The guards stationed at the town gate through which travelers come and go. Copper, who's on the right, is in charge of traveling via Nintendo WFC, and Booker on the left runs the lost and found. Booker's a cute fellow who's known for his indecisive manner...maybe. Copper's diligent, dedicated, and always ready to lend a helping paw.

    Trivia[edit]

    • In a character popularity poll held on the Japanese Animal Crossing website, Copper ranked as the 14th most popular character with 973 votes, ranking above Olivia but below Tortimer.[1]
      • The website erroneously lists Copper as tied with Tortimer at 13th place despite having fewer votes than him. This coincides with the numbering system used on the Doubutsu no Mori website, where 13th place is listed twice due to a tie between Olivia and Apollo.[2]
    • Copper appears on the album cover of "Agent K.K."
