Egbert (しもやけ, Shimoyake) is a lazy, chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series who has appeared in every game to date. His name comes from egg. His Japanese name can mean "chilblains".


Egbert from Animal Crossing

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. His initial shirt is the Swell shirt.


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

As a lazy villager, Egbert will be easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he shares an interest in food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food (fishing). He will get along well with other villager types such as the normal villagers who act as a mother or elder sister figure and peppy villagers who appear to be around the same age. He also gets along easily with smug and uchi villagers, and sometimes cranky villagers as well. He may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, who do not understand the reason behind the lazy lifestyle choice. Snooty villagers won't get along with him because of him constantly bringing up food in his conversations with them.


Egbert's initial house has a mosaic wall and blue floor, a cream sofa, 2 gyroids, and several items from the robo set. His stereo plays K.K. Technopop.
