Nate is a lazy bear villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Doubutsu no Mori and appears in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Wild World.

In New Horizons, Nate has the play hobby and will be more frequently seen running around the island, sometimes with other villagers.



Nate is an orange bear with a thick, green unibrow and black, dotlike eyes. He appears to pull a continuous unhappy look upon his face, due to his mouth meeting at his black, triangular nose. He also has three freckles on each cheek, a white snout, and cream paws.


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

Like other lazy villagers, Nate is calm, laid back, and likes food. Despite these interests, Nate actually is very shy, not talking much to others. Nate is usually in a good mood and will be happy to carry a conversation with the player. If angered, Nate will usually need a few minutes to cool down, but after that he is calm, cool and collected all over again. Nate's hobbies are staying inside sitting on his couch and watching TV, and the occasional furniture hunting. In New Leaf, he wakes up at 9 AM and falls asleep at 11 PM.
