Cranston is a lazy, ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name may come from "crane," which he resembles, while his initial catchphrase may cause one to confuse him for a jock villager.



Cranston's feathers are dominantly white, graduating to peach. He has pinkish feet and orange markings around his eyes. He has a brown beak, with an orange spot at the tip of it. Despite being an ostrich, he also resembles either an ibis or crane.


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

Cranston has a lazy personality, meaning he will appear laid-back. He will often mention food and taking naps. Jock villagers will often conflict him, due to having opposite lifestyles. He will get along with most normal and cranky villagers.


Cranston's home has an outdoorsy look, with the Daisy Meadow and Sky Wall spread in his home. His house has a Picnic Table in the middle, with a Dice Stereo playing Steep Hill in the northern area of his home. He also has a Fire Hydrant, a Clothesline Pole, a Pineapple Bed, a fish and three Baby Beds. The three beds are a reference to his stork-like appearance, while storks are believed to deliver babies.


Cranston's Japanese name, Tokio, is a reference to the city of Tokyo and the Japanese Crested Ibis.
