Murphy is a cranky bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, though data for him exists, but ultimately remains unused, in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.

In New Horizons, Murphy has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel-type book while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain furniture items.


Murphy in Animal Crossing


Murphy is a green cub. He has a white muzzle with matching paws. He has very thick, dark green eyebrows, and almost identical closed eyes. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, Murphy's eyebrows become slightly more arched. There is a darker green patch over his right ear. In Doubutsu no Mori, Murphy's eyes and eyebrows are more curved and his mouth is larger.


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

Murphy is a cranky villager, acting rude, belittling, and stubborn at first glance. His bitter behavior often leads him to judge others too quickly, catching the ire of peppy villagers and being annoyed by jock villagers. Additionally, Murphy will be disgusted by the lavish, arrogant lifestyles of smug and snooty villagers, the former of which he claims are "mucking around". Sisterly villagers, the female counterpart of his personality, conflict with him the most; both personalities are stubborn and opinionated, and should they have differing opinions, the two will enter a fierce argument. If the player befriends Murphy, however, he will tone down his rude behavior, although he will still retain his stubbornness.
