Ribbot is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name is a portmanteau of ribbit and robot. He and Lily switched their catchphrases from Wild World until the Pocket Camp 1.8.1 update.

In New Horizons, Ribbot has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Ribbot from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Because Ribbot is a robotic frog, he is made entirely of metal. He has several lines on his face where the metal has been bolted together, and his mouth looks like a storage chute which opens outwards. He has headlights that resemble eyes, and occasionally pupils appear inside them while he is talking. He also has the number "59" written in white on the back of his head, which could hint that he is one of many robots of his kind to be made. There is a blue and red stripe of the front of his head, located between his eyes.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Ribbot is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Ribbot goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
