Elvis is a cranky, lion villager from the Animal Crossing series. His catchphrase and picture quote are references to Elvis Presley, the famous singer. Presley was also known as "the King" - a reference that lends itself to the lion, which is known in popular culture as "the king of the jungle." His initial shirt and his house are references to a king also.



Elvis WW.png

Elvis has a brown mane and a yellow-cream body. He has huge scars on his face, the one on the right crossed. His eyes look very cranky, with his heavy, dark eyebrows, hence his personality.


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

Elvis has a cranky personality, which means that he will be rude to the player at first and will be hard to befriend. If players are kind and persistent, he will warm up to them and consider them as his only friend and may give them his picture. Occasionally, he will speak out for his respect for hobos. He will get along with snooty villagers and other cranky villagers. He loves to dig for fossils. He may also be one of the first villagers to propose a move.


In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Elvis has two Regal Sofas in his house, as well as some other rare items like a lot of other cranky villagers do in their house, such as a Treasure Chest. He has two Exotic Screens, two Pantheon Posts, and two Thrones. He also has the Arched Window on his walls and Stone Tile on the floor. If he is given a stereo, the stereo will play "K.K. Casbah,"
