Poncho is a jock bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His catchphrase, "li'l bear," is a reference to his species.

In New Horizons, Poncho has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Poncho from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Poncho is a navy blue bear cub; he may be based on the spectacled bear, a diminutive species native to the Andean mountains and the only surviving species of bear in South America. He has light blue hair, and a yellow muzzle. The tips of his paws and feet are also yellow.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Poncho is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due to their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Poncho goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
