Ed is a horse villager who first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori as a jock villager, but was given a smug personality in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He has appeared in most of the games in the Animal Crossing series, with the exceptions of Wild World and Pocket Camp. His name may come from Mr. Ed, a television show about a talking horse that aired in the early 1960s. His initial phrase, greenhorn, is a slang word to refer to amateurs, relating to both his original jock personality and his current smug personality.



Ed DnM.png

Ed is a teal horse with yellow hair which covers his right eye, and a white muzzle. He has purple eyeshadow and long eyelashes, giving a false impression that he is female, when he is actually a male. He has a tuft of blond fur at the end of his skinny teal tail. In Doubutsu no Mori he has round nostrils however in Animal Crossing: City Folk and onward his nostrils are a long rounded triangular shape.


In Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing, and City Folk[edit]

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

From Doubutsu no Mori up to Animal Crossing: City Folk, Ed 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 villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.

In New Leaf[edit]

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

Ed has a smug personality since Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which means he seems to be a mix between all male villagers. He often acts arrogantly, but can appear kind-hearted and polite, sometimes gentlemanly, and will flirt with the player regardless of gender. He will easily get along with most other villagers, though he will occasionally annoy cranky villagers with his arrogance.
