Lazy[1][2] is a male villager personality type in the Animal Crossing series. Lazy villagers have a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and appear friendly toward the player. They often talks about food and are humorous or naïve during conversations.

As of the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are a total of 76 lazy villagers across the series;[nb 1] 60 appear in New Horizons.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance-wise, many lazy villagers are depicted with droopy eyes and a lazy smile. Often, they also appear to be younger than most villagers. Some lazy villagers, however, have appeared to be much older at times, or have filled their homes with older-style furniture, such as Doc, Nate, Otis, and Sven, implying that these lazy villagers are in reality very old and therefore aloof due to their age.

Behaviors[edit]

A player giving Bob, a notable lazy villager, a snack in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, to which he remarks not eating for 45 minutes.

Lazy villagers have a relaxed and laid-back approach to living in the town unlike the normal meaning, not being bothered by homework or chores and doing laid-back things. They appear somewhat goofy or naive, in the way they speak and talk about hobbies, particularly fashion. Often, they will have dreamed up an "alter ego" of Fashion Lad. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, they may mention reading an unseen magazine, called "Chillin' Magazine", which also reflects on their chilled, relaxed lifestyle. In New Horizons, they frequently mention that they talk to and make friends with bugs, including some that have apparently infested their houses.

They often mention theories relating to certain aspects of the town, which they will mention in conversation to the player or other villagers. For example, some lazy villagers will wonder aloud who has to sit inside the Tom Nook Point System to make it talk, suggest that Tom Nook's store has a basement filled with Tom Nook stuffed animals, or posit that they are part of a game for someone else's amusement (but then claim it was a joke). In some games, they may express a fascination with Tom Nook's fluffy tail.

In Animal Crossing, the lazy islanders Boomer, Dobie (Until Welcome amiibo) and Yodel, as well as the lazy Doubutsu no Mori e+ islanders Kidd (until New Leaf) and Raddle, are much more stubborn than their mainland counterparts; acting independent, saying that they "belong to no one" when first spoken to, in a similar manner to a cranky villager, but are also airheaded. Despite this depiction, however, only Dobie returns with a proper cranky personality.

Lazy villagers usually go to sleep at 10:00 PM, and awaken at 8:00 AM in Animal Crossing, but in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk usually go to sleep at 1:30 AM and awaken at 8:00 AM. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, they usually go to sleep at 11:00 PM and awaken at 9:00 AM. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons they go to sleep at 11:00 PM and awaken at 8:00 AM.

Relationships[edit]

See also: Lazy/Conversations

Lazy villagers are often the easiest to befriend. To do this, the player can simply send the chosen villager mail containing gifts and repeatedly talk to them. Often, the player can receive their picture. Depending on the game, benefits may include:

  • The villager will not move for a long time
  • The player will receive mail and gifts
  • The villager is constantly nice to the player
  • If the player is female, they will likely receive chocolate from them on Valentine's Day
  • In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, they will host the player's birthday.

They find it easy to get along and talk to other villagers, including the player. They get along well with other lazy villagers and peppy villagers. Lazy villagers also get along with smug villagers, due to smug villagers having a laid-back sense of humor, which lazy villagers find amusing. Jock villagers will find it difficult to get along with them due to their conflicting lifestyles of relaxing compared to the jock lifestyle of exercising and fitness. Snooty villagers also find it hard to get along with them due to their laid-back style and lack of obsession of their physical appearance. Cranky villagers will get along with lazy villagers too, as they too enjoy the slow-paced lifestyle and outlook on life. Normal villagers may conflict with them sometimes, but will not get annoyed, upset, or confused, because the arguments usually revolve around the lazy villager subtly suggesting they make food for them. They sometimes get cranky when talking to normal villagers or jock villagers.

Quotes[edit]

Below are some (not all) quotes made by lazy villagers.

  • I heard this real scary story... Do you want to hear it?
    Putting
    (food) in (other food)... Produces the flavor of (another food).
    Ewwwww! It's so creepy and unnatural!"
  • "Do you have a favorite place? You know, a place where you can take a midday nap when you're tired? Huh? Oh me? Well, when you're out, sometimes I like to snooze on your floor!"
  • "I feel so grown-up sitting here in the café. If I stay here long enough, I'll probably have to start shaving, <catchphrase>!"
