Spork, known as Crackle in PAL regions beginning in City Folk, is a lazy pig villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His North American name is a play on the word "pork," the meat of a pig. In addition, a spork is an eating utensil, which could reflect his love of eating as a lazy villager. His PAL name, "Crackle," refers to "crackling," another kind of pig meat. His catchphrase, "snork," is a combination of his name and the name given to the noise pigs make, "snort."

In New Horizons, Spork 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]

Artwork of Spork from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Spork is a brown pig with beady eyes with a line through them resembling an over-lying forehead. He has a brown hair in a simple, short haircut and blue coloring inside his ears.

Personality[edit]

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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Spork 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.
