Prince is a lazy frog villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name is based on the fairy tale The Frog Prince.

In New Horizons, Prince 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.


Artwork of Prince from Animal Crossing.


Prince is a green frog. He has a ring of darker green, representing a beard, around a beige spot on his mouth.


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

As a lazy villager, Prince 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, Prince goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.
