Punchy is a lazy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori+ and has appeared in all subsequent games. Punchy is one of two non-islander villagers who appear in Doubutsu no Mori+ but not Doubutsu no Mori, the other being Cheri.

In New Horizons, Punchy 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.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Punchy from Animal Crossing.

Punchy is a black and white cat with purple half-closed eyelids and yellow eyes as well as black whiskers.

Personality[edit]

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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Punchy 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.
