Cube is a lazy penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appears in Animal Crossing. His English name may come from ice cubes, relating to his species's habitat. 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 can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Cube from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

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.

Personality[edit]

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

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