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 light brown monkey with a white muzzle and red around his eyes. His tail is tipped with a chocolate brown color that matches his forearms and his feet. The insides of his ears are blue, as well as his eyelids. His thin flat nose is black. The tuft of fur at the very top of his head is slightly darker at the tip. He somewhat resembles a red-eared monkey or red-shanked douc.

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.

    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.
