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. Given the number "59" which appears on the back of his head, and the space-themed interior of his home in games prior to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, his design may be inspired by the Luna 2 spacecraft, which became the first robotic spacecraft to reach the surface of the moon in September 1959. 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]

Ribbot is a robotic frog entirely composed 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. There is a blue and red stripe of the front of his head, located between his eyes. He has the number "59" written in white on the back of his head.

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.

In Happy Home Paradise[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise, a large portion of unlocked items for Ribbot's house request are machines with crank handles. This is a direct reference to Ribbot's Japanese namesake, Gacha (ガチャ), as these machines are associated with the gacha onomatopoeia. The Capsule-Toy Machine (commonly known as a "gachapon") is the most direct reference.
