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.

In New Horizons, Rory has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Rory from New Leaf.

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.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Rory 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, Rory goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
