Sly is a jock alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name is derived from his camouflage clothing and decorations which make him hidden. Similarly, his Japanese name comes from "hide."

In New Horizons, Sly 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.



Artwork of Sly from Welcome amiibo.

Sly is an alligator with a tan, orange, and brown camouflage pattern on his body, and green eyes with black pupils that have white dots in the center. His camouflage appearance is similar to Camofrog.


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

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