Cranston is a lazy ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In New Horizons, Cranston 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]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Cranston from New Leaf.

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 strongly resembles a crested ibis.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Cranston 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, Cranston goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.
