Lions are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. They are one of three types of large cat that appear in the franchise. They have small ears set high on their heads, broad rectangular noses, and also possess tufts of fur at the end of their tails, similar to the elephants, rhinoceross, and bovines. All lion villagers are male, making them the only species currently composed of one gender if cows and bulls are considered one species. All of them have manes.

There are nine lion villagers so far, of which four are jock, two are cranky, two are smug, and one is lazy. One of the smug lions, Leopold, previously had the jock personality. Aziz and Jūbei are the only lions who have not reappeared since Doubutsu no Mori e+. Elvis, Mott, and Rory are also absent from Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
