Hornsby is a lazy rhino villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name is a play on the horn on his head. Although his files from Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer can be found, Hornsby is absent from that game.

In New Horizons, Hornsby has the nature hobby and will be more frequently seen sitting underneath trees or observing and watering flowers. He will also fish and chase after bugs, and may also be seen carrying bundles of sticks or picnic baskets.


Hornsby in Animal Crossing.


Hornsby is a blue rhino with yellow horns and pink ears with smaller black insides. Hornsby also has black eyes pointing in opposite directions, which appear to be pointing to his back when viewed to the side. On the back of Hornsby's head is dark blue stripes.


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

Hornsby is a lazy villager, meaning he enjoys sleeping and eating. Cranky villagers will admire his laid-back lifestyle. He will not get along with jock villagers, due to their love of exercise. He will be very friendly and will not get mad at the player often, making him easily to befriend.
