Simon is a lazy monkey villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name may come from simian, an order of primates.

In New Horizons, Simon has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Simon from City Folk.

Simon is a brown monkey with a white muzzle and red around his eyes. He has a long brown tail that swirls at the end, becoming a darker, chocolate brown color that matches his fore-arms and his feet. His ears are big, sticking out at the sides of his head, and they are blue on the inside. His nose is also blue, as are his eyelids. There is a point at the very top of his head that may be hair, as his fur is slightly darker at that point. He somewhat resembles the blue and red-eared monkey species.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Simon 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, Simon goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

Villager information[edit]

In Wild World[edit]

Simon, like all monkey villagers in Animal Crossing: Wild World, can only move to the player's town after being distributed via a promotional Game Card.

It's kind of a stereotype, but I really do like bananas!

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Simon 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.
