Drift is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. In Animal Crossing, he appeared as an islander. His name may come from his original role as an islander, as the word "drift" is usually used in the context of water. His catchphrase used in Animal Crossing through Animal Crossing: New Leaf comes from the sound a frog makes combined with "bro," a term that jocks commonly use in conversations. His English catchphrase as of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is onomatopoeia of a frog noise, "ribbit," combined with the word "drip," again evoking the water theme from his name. His Japanese catchphrase is the sound of a frog's croaking in Japanese.

In New Horizons, Drift has the fitness hobby and will be more frequently seen participating in exercises by stretching or lifting heavy weights.

Drift is a red frog with orange, yellow, and brown markings all over his body and face, resembling a Poison Dart Frog. He has a large smile and large eyes. As an islander in Animal Crossing, he has a flowery wreath around his neck, which is unseen in his artwork for this game as well as all proceeding installments.


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

Drift has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy, sisterly, cranky and other jock villagers. He get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may also offend and upset snooty villagers, due to them being difficult to get along with.

He may look the poisonous type, but Drift is actually a pretty cool guy. He wouldn't hurt a fly...in the metaphorical sense.
