Rory is a jock lion villager in the Animal Crossing series. He debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and is featured on the game's cover. Rory's design is based on the traditional iconography of Shishi, the Chinese architectural ornament also known as Imperial guardian lions. His name comes from the roar a lion makes.



Rory is an orange lion with a red-orange mane. His mustache and eyebrows are also red-orange, and are similar rounded shapes. He has white paws, a red-orange tail, and light blue inner ears.


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

As a jock villager, Rory will have an interest in physical fitness and sports making him appear competitive when talking to other villagers and the player. He will, despite his competitiveness, appear friendly towards the player but he may offend other villagers, usually snooty or cranky villagers, when he criticizes their fitness and physical appearance, usually making them walk off angry or upset. He will find it difficult to talk to lazy villagers, who have an opposite choice of lifestyle - appearing relaxed and calm, with no interest in physical fitness and an interest in food. He will occasionally be found doing workouts with other villagers, and likes to talk about fitness to other villagers or the player.
