Punchy (ビンタ, Binta) is a cat villager in the Animal Crossing series with a lazy personality. His name may come from the word "punchy," which means being groggy or dazed from a series of punches. Similarly, his Japanese name means to slap someone on the cheek. His catchphrase is the sound of shrugging combined with sighing, which relates to his lazy personality. His picture quote from Animal Crossing: Wild World also relates to his personality, known for being laid back. Punchy was featured on the cover of Animal Crossing, in the upper window on the side with Mitzi, another cat villager.

Like Cheri, Punchy is not available in Doubutsu no Mori, instead making his debut in Doubutsu no Mori+, making them the only non-islander villagers to make their debut in the updated version instead of the N64 version.



Punchy is a black and white lazy-eyed cat with purple eyelids and yellow eyes. He resembles Tom, Rover, and Moe. He also has whiskers and a small, but nice smile. His expression gives a big hint that he is a happy character. He wears a Cherry Top in Animal Crossing, which reflects on his personality, which involves a love for food. In Japanese version of Animal Crossing he wears the GC Shirt. In Animal Crossing: Wild World onwards, he wears a Gray Tartan.


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

As a lazy villager, Punchy will be easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he shares a love of food and relaxing. When asked to purchase clothing for him, he may mention a superhero-like name "Fashion Lad". Fashion Lad is mentioned by most lazy villagers when talking about fashion, in a way stating that the said Fashion Lad is the villager complimenting his own fashion skills. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food such as fishing. He will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, compared to the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food.
