Egbert is a lazy chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series who has appeared in every game to date. His name is likely a pun on egg, what his species lays, and the given name Egbert.

In New Horizons, Egbert 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 Egbert from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Egbert is a yellow chicken with striped, orange legs. He has a short orange beak and has black rings under his eyes, which give him a tired appearance. His comb is red. He has a slightly dazed expression on his face.

Personality[edit]

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

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