Rex is a lazy lion villager from the Animal Crossing series. He initially appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+, but remained absent from the franchise until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. He has been present in every game since. His name comes from the Latin word "rex," which means "king," relating to the common metaphor that lions are "kings of the jungle." His English name is Flick's (New Horizons) Japanese name.

In New Horizons, Rex has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.



Rex is an orange lion with a brown mane. He has three freckles on both of his cheeks, and a dark brown nose. He has half-closed eyes with purple eyelids.


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

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

In New Horizons[edit]

In New Horizons, if Rex 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.
