Harry is a hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ as an islander under the jock personality, then later reappeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk as a cranky villager, after being absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World. He, alongside Violet, is the second villager to have his personality changed. His name may be a play on the word "hairy," which refers to his beard. His initial phrase, "beach bum," possibly references the fact that he was an islander in e+.

In New Horizons, Harry has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel-type book while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.



Harry is a greenish-yellow hippo with big, black, bushy eyebrows and beard. He also has cream colored lips and hooves. He is slightly similar in appearance to Prince, who also has cream lips and a beard. The inside of his ears are a hot pink.


Harry originally appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ as a jock islander, then later returned in Animal Crossing: City Folk as a cranky villager.

Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

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

Harry first appears as a jock islander in Doubutsu no Mori e+, meaning he is competitive, brotherly and athletic. He appears absent-minded and somewhat self-centered in conversation, but is generally kind and generous to the player. He unintentionally offends lazy and snooty villagers, as he is confused about their lifestyles. He is considered the male equivalent to the hyperactive peppy villagers.

City Folk onwards[edit]

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

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Harry has become a cranky villager, appearing mature compared to animals of other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace rather than competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone. He tends to occasionally talk about spreading rumors about other villagers for fun.
