Elmer is a lazy horse villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name could be a reference to either the Elmer Horse Collection, a company which makes horse figurines, or Elmer's Glue (glue used to be made from horses). His catchphrase, "tenderfoot," may relate to the cowboy ranch rank, where a tenderfoot is an inexperienced ranchman, or "cowboy." This may also be related to one of the Boy Scout ranks in American Scouts. His picture quote is referring to his lazy personality, because lazy villagers enjoy the consumption of food.

In New Horizons, Elmer 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 Elmer from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Elmer is a brown horse with a darker brown mane and a gray muzzle. He has partially closed, lazy-looking eyes with blue eyelids.

Personality[edit]

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

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