- — Lloid, Animal Crossing: City Folk
Lloid is a gyroid character first appearing in Animal Crossing: City Folk. Despite this, however, there was a Gyroid in Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ that looked exactly the same as Lloid, and even share the same Japanese name (haniwa kun).
Lloid first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk as the owner of the Auction House, located to the right of GracieGrace in the city. He allows the player to bid, deposit an item for bidding. He is also an alternative to storage space for those who do not have a dresser called the checkroom; the checkroom, however, is accessible from a dresser and vice-versa. Lloid allows the player to inquire about displays, bids, and the checkroom. One weekend he accepts displays to add, and on the next weekend he allows the player to bid on items. This feature is very similar to the "storage" feature of the original Gyroid in Animal Crossing. Displays were able to be added on the Auction House by a registered friend over Wi-Fi (from his or her town). Just as the gyroid in Animal Crossing, he dances faster when players get closer to him.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Lloid reappears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf with a new function, and now serves at the construction site of a public works project, where he takes donations on the project. He also appears on the island where he rents tools for the player to use. Lloid also appears when the player enters a dream, where he also gives free tools for the player to use.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Lloid is the host and owner of Shovelstrike Quarry, a minigame that allows players to gain extra craft materials by agreeing to work for him. He also takes care of the player's garden on the campsite, teaching the player how to plant seeds, pollinate flowers and catch bugs that grow on the plants. He also sells seeds to the player or allows them to trade flowers for items.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
Lloid appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U where he is used as the Villager's side special move, Lloid Rocket. He is also a collectible trophy.
