Cube is a lazy penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appears in Animal Crossing. His English name is possibly taken from the Nintendo GameCube, the console in which he makes his first appearance on in the West, although he may alternatively be named after ice cubes. His Japanese name, Vis, which is French for screw, is likely a reference to his unique screw-like eyes.

In New Horizons, Cube has the play hobby and will be more frequently seen running around the island, sometimes with other villagers.



Cube is a black and white Emperor Penguin with yellow-orange cheeks and a large beak. His flippers, back, and part of his neck are turquoise blue. His head is a glossy black, and his stomach is polished white. Cube has large white eyes with black, cross-shaped pupils, resembling screws or possibly even the directional-pad of a Nintendo controller. He wore an exclusive-to-Japan N64 Shirt in Doubutsu no Mori but was changed to the GameCube version for the 2002 release in other places.


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

Cube is a lazy villager, meaning he has a friendly, laid-back personality and likes to frequently talk and think about food. Cube will not get on too well with snooty or jock villagers because they will not understand his lifestyle, which is a love of food and a relaxing, chilled outlook on life. He will also ask snooty villagers about their dinner plans, giving them ideas for their dinner and then dropping hints that he will be coming to eat. He gets along with normal, peppy, and other lazy villagers, who are open-minded about other villagers' personalities.
