Rodeo is a lazy, bull villager who made his first appearance in Animal Crossing: Wild World. His name, Rodeo, comes from rodeo bulls, or bull-riding at rodeos, an event usually taking place in the US, where the rider aims to stay on the bull the longest while it is jumping and running. His initial phrase, "chaps," also relates to this. Chaps are an item of clothing, typically worn over jeans and made out of leather, which protect a rider from their trousers rubbing against their legs, otherwise causing irritation.

In New Horizons, Rodeo has the fitness hobby and will be more frequently seen participating in exercises by stretching or lifting heavy weights.



Rodeo in Wild World.

Rodeo is a black bull with dull, beige horns, a lighter grey muzzle and a white tip to his tail. He has short grey hair styled in an unkept fringe, which almost reaches his small, evil-looking eyes. While originally deep red, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons his eyes take on a more bright, electric shade of pink, toning down his creepy aura. In New Leaf on rainy days Rodeo carries a Blue Dot Parasol, while in New Horizons he carries a Ghost Umbrella.


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

As a lazy villager, he refers to food most of the time. He occasionally, like other lazy villagers, refers to himself as "Fashion Lad." This may have something to do with their fascination of superheroes. He is easy to get along with. He tends not to over-react like other personality traits, and tends to keep to his lazy or "laid-back" demeanor. He enjoys all the hobbies, such as fishing, bug catching, and fossil collecting, and is rarely discouraged from attending the Fishing Tourney or Bug Off competition. Lazy types rarely get angry. When they are upset, it is mostly sadness rather than anger. He will not get along with jock villagers because they are always exercising and eating healthily, while Rodeo is frequently relaxing, but he will get along with cranky villagers because they admire Rodeo's laid back lifestyle. He will not get along with snooty animals because they are concerned about his lifestyle.

Rodeo probably has more in common with a sunbathing sea lion than a raging bull. His super-chill demeanor catches a lot of people off guard.
