Sherb is a lazy goat villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and was added to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp to coincide with the former's release. His name may be derived from "sherbet", a frozen dessert, which relates to the snow-themed clothes he wears by default.

In New Horizons, Sherb has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.



Artwork of Sherb from New Horizons.

Sherb is a goat with pale blue fur and a deeper blue tuft of hair leaning to the left. He has pale gray hooves, and horns which are striped with light gray and a darker shade of gray. His pupils are large and black, and his eyes are slightly slanted upwards. He has a coral pink nose and a 3-shaped mouth which connects to his nose. His inner ears are pale orange and he has pale pink cheeks just below his eyes. Much like Kidd, he does not have a beard, making him look fairly youthful compared to the other male goats.


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

As a lazy villager, Sherb has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Sherb goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

    In Happy Home Paradise[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise, Sherb's house request is likely a reference to the Disney Parks, and more specifically, the fairy tale-themed Fantasyland section of the parks.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Sherb is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
