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 and his catchphrase comes from the sound a frog makes combined with "bro", a term that jocks commonly use in conversations. His Japanese name, Doku, meaning poison, likely comes from his coloring, which is similar to a poison dart frog. His Japanese catchphrase is the sound of a frog's croaking in Japanese.



Drift PG.gif

Drift is a red frog with orange, yellow, and brownish gray colored markings all over his body and face in what looks like a "smeared on camouflage" design. He has a huge smile and initially wears the No. 67 Shirt in Animal Crossing: Wild World onward, which is scarlet with a light blue 67 on it. In Animal Crossing and it’s updates, he wears a Blue Aloha Shirt, as he is a male islander, and a flowery wreath around his neck, which is removed in other 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, uchi, 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.

Fruit Allergy[edit]

In the original Animal Crossing, Drift has a favorite fruit and a fruit that he is allergic too. He is allergic to apples, and feeding him them will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. His favorite fruit is oranges.
