Drago is a lazy alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name is likely derived from his dragon-like appearance, and his catchphrase refers to a dragon's fiery breath. Similarly, his Japanese name, Tatsuo (タツオ), is derived from tatsu (龍/竜), meaning "dragon," specifically Asian dragons. The sea horse model in Drago's New Horizons house is a reference to his appearance and name, as the Japanese word for "sea horse" literally translates to tatsu no otoshigo (タツノオトシゴ), "dragon's illegitimate child."

In New Horizons, Drago 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.



Artwork of Drago from New Leaf.

Drago is an alligator resembling a dragon, hence his name. His body is mostly covered in fern green scales, except for his lower jaw, underside of his arms, and soft belly, which are a pale cream. He also possesses two frilled flaps on either side of his head, along with two horns atop his head. In addition, he has two fangs on his lower jaw and his lips are magenta colored.


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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Drago is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.

    • Drago's favorite saying, "there's no room for two dragons in one pond," is likely to be a play on two Chinese proverbs, "there's no room for two tigers on one mountain" (一山不容二虎) and "dragons are not to be kept in ponds" (非池中物). The latter is also his Japanese favorite saying.
