Porter is a monkey who runs the Train Station in Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He coordinates transportation between towns. Little is known about him, and he never re-appeared in future games of the Animal Crossing series until his latest appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He strongly resembles the villager, Champ, who appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. He is a brown monkey with a pale yellow face, hands, and feet. He wears a blue station porter uniform, with gold buttons on his jacket and a badge on his hat.


Doubutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing[edit]

Porter DnM.png

Porter first makes his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori, and its GameCube port Animal Crossing. In this game, he is an attendant at the Train Station, who allows players to visit other towns by speaking with him. The train that passes through town is driven by a monkey who shares identical looks with Porter, including the uniform.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

After being absent in all previous entries, Porter returns as the train station porter in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He will suggest train station renovations as public works projects when other players visit the town 100 times or more.

Other appearances[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Porter appears as a collectible trophy.

NTSC-U: Some monkeys prefer the monkey bars, but not Porter—his passion is the train station where he works, and he'll make sure you get to where you're going. He can be a little intense sometimes, but he's a decent guy. Oh, and don't worry - you'll get no monkey business from him.

PAL: Forget monkey bars—this monkey knows a better way to get around! Working at the train station in his cute little uniform, he'll make sure you get where you're going. He might flip out sometimes, but he's a decent guy. And don't worry - you'll never catch him monkeying around on the job!
