Nate is a lazy bear villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name may be derived from "hibernate," an action done by bears in the winter, relating to his personality. His catchphrase also relates to his personality.

In New Horizons, Nate has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Nate from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

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.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Nate has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Nate goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Nate is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
