Spike is a cranky rhino villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name refers to the horn on his head, which could also be called a spike. Following his debut in Doubutsu no Mori, Spike would remain absent in all games past Doubutsu no Mori e+, before making a return in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. Previously, however, Spike would have returned in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, but was ultimately unused. Unused data of Spike could also be found in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp prior to his inclusion in the game.



Spike PG.png

Spike has orange skin, angry black eyes, and a scar on his nose with brown stitches. These traits combined give him a rebellious, violent look, hence his name, Spike, and his initial catchphrase, "punk". However, according to his e-Reader card, he is "as cuddly as a teddy bear" once one gets to know him. The umbrella he owns sports several rubber ducks, which may support this. In Doubutsu no Mori, Spike's eyes appear much angrier, and his scar does not have stitches.


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

As a cranky villager, Spike will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace rather than for competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone. Smug and sisterly villagers may be difficult for him to get along with, as he tends to talk about them behind their backs or get them angry.

Sure, he looks a little intimidating and sounds like a tough-as-nails ex-cop in an action movie, but Spike's really a sweet guy.
