Pudge is a lazy bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date.

In New Horizons, Pudge 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 Pudge from Animal Crossing.


Pudge is an orange bear cub with brown hair and a peachy muzzle, paws, and feet. The tips of his ears and tail are green. His eyes are black and appear to be squinting. He has a look of confusion, concern, or perhaps dizziness on his face.


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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Pudge 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.

    Profile: As a fish-crazy bear and a dedicated daydreamer, Pudge is always staring at the fish-filled waters so intently that one small nudge would push him in the drink. Maybe that way he'd actually catch a fish. He's a terrible fisherman.
