Rex is a lazy lion villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name comes from the Latin word "rex," which means "king," relating to the view that lions are "kings of the jungle." Rex's Japanese name refers to the day of Sunday, commonly known in Christianity as the sabbath, or day of rest. Alternatively, it could refer to the sundae, an ice cream dessert. As Rex is a lazy villager, this name is a reference to his personality.

Rex is an orange lion with a brown mane, along with three freckles on each side of his dark brown nose. He also has half-closed eyes with purple eyelids.


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

Rex has a lazy personality, meaning he will mostly talk about food and sleeping. Cranky villagers will admire their laid-back style, while jock and snooty villagers, on the other hand, may conflict him due to his lifestyle and not caring about his appearance, respectively.
