Gruff is a cranky goat villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori and after Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name comes from the Norwegian fairy tale "Three Billy Goats Gruff."

In New Horizons, Gruff has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Gruff from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Gruff is a goat with green fur and brown hair shaped like a widow's peak. His eyes are blue with eyelashes and are almost always half closed, which give him the appearance of a smug villager. He has white horns and a black nose. He also has a brown beard. His tail is also brown. The inside of his ears is a pale pink.

Personality[edit]

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

Gruff has a cranky personality, meaning that he will appear rude and mean to the player at first. If the player befriends him he will be nicer to them, but he still will be slightly rude. He will admire lazy villagers' laid-back personality and will get along with snooty villagers due to their similarly rude personalities. He may find it hard to talk to peppy villagers due to their hyper personality.
