Papi is a lazy horse villager from the Animal Crossing series. He made his first appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Despite being a horse, his appearance is based on the okapi, an animal closely related to giraffes. His English and Japanese names both reference this.



Papi is a brown horse with a blackish brown mane and tail. His arms and legs are white with black stripes. His muzzle is pink and the inside of his ears are blue. Apart from the top of his head, which resembles brown hair and a fringe, his face is white. His eyes are simple ovals.


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

Papi is a lazy villager, and has a laid back lifestyle with a generally friendly attitude toward the player. Papi will not get on too well with snooty or jock villagers because they will not understand his lifestyle, which is a love of food and a relaxing, chilled outlook on life. He will also ask snooty villagers about their dinner plans, giving them ideas for their dinner and then dropping hints that he will be coming to eat. He gets along with normal, peppy, and other lazy villagers, who are open-minded about other villagers' personalities.

Names in other languages[edit]

Japanese オカッピ
Comes from the animal he is based off of, the okapi

Korean 마사마

Russian Папи
Same as English

German Friedel -

European Spanish Bayo Bay

European French Bouricco From "bourricot", a word for donkey, perhaps in reference to Henry Morton Stanley having believed the okapi was some kind of donkey.

Italian Pierino -


  • In real-life, male okapis have small horns on their heads called ossicones. Despite Papi being a male themed after an okapi, he lacks these protuberances and possesses a hair whorl, which are a trait characteristic of female okapi only.
