Lionel is a smug lion villager in the Animal Crossing series. He debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in every installment since. His name is word play on his species.

In New Horizons, Lionel has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo playing music.



Lionel in New Leaf.

Lionel has a white mane, eyebrows, and mustache. He has light brown fur and darker brown hands, feet, nose, and tail. He has blue eyes and his cheeks have orange circles, resembling blush. The insides of his ears are yellow.


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

Lionel has a smug personality, essentially the male equivalent of the big sister personality. He is very kind-hearted, and he will act very polite and sometimes gentleman-like. He will easily get along with villagers of any personality. He will sometimes flirt with the player, regardless of gender.
