Main Appearances
Other Appearances

Kyle is a smug wolf villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Both his English and Japanese names likely refer to the lycaon, also known as the African wild dog, which he bears a resemblance to.



Kyle's appearance is based on an African wild dog, a species of canine similar to wolves. Kyle is light brown with dark brown accents in areas such as around his snout. He has pink ears and purple eyelids that cover half of his eyes, similarly to a typical lazy villager's. Kyle also bears a passing resemblance to Vivian, a snooty wolf villager.


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

Kyle has the smug personality, meaning he is very confident and owns many musical instruments. Kyle also wears rock 'n' roll clothing, and talks about whether he has a rock 'n' roll type of personality. Kyle gets along easily with other villagers and with the player. He enjoys dancing and fishing. Sometimes Kyle will mention if he has talked to the player many times in a day. Since he has the smug personality type, he cannot be obtained as a starter villager and therefore must move in to the town.
