Lopez is a smug deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name comes from "antelopes," animals that bear a resemblance to deer. His catchphrase is a play on "buck," meaning a male antelope or deer. His Japanese catchphrase is a play on "gazelle."

In New Horizons, Lopez has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.



Artwork of Lopez from New Leaf.

Lopez is a yellow-orange and white deer with gray horns and black hooves. Although Lopez's species is a deer, his design is based on an antelope, most closely resembling the Thomson's gazelle.


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

Lopez is a smug villager, meaning he will come off as a gentleman and polite. Smug villagers seem to be a mix between some personalities, and are kind, lively but can come off as conceited. If the player is female, they will occasionally flirt. Smug villagers cannot be a starter villager, and can only move in after the player becomes mayor. They wake up at 8:30 AM.
