Stitches is a lazy bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World and has appeared in all subsequent games. He is designed after a teddy bear made up of colorful patches of fabric, and his name, catchphrase, and favorite saying reference his design.

In New Horizons, Stitches 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 Stitches from Wild World.

Stitches is a bear cub with the appearance of a teddy bear, stitched together with a bright purple forehead and tail, an orange face and body, x-shaped eyes, and two ears of different colors. His left ear is blue and light green and his right ear is dark green and orange. His limbs are all colored differently; his left arm is dark green, his right arm is blue, his left leg is dark orange, and his right leg is light green. He has a small, white muzzle with a bear smile and nose, as well as a white stomach.

Personality[edit]

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

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

    House[edit]

    In each game since his debut, Stitches's house is designed after a child's playroom, with his New Horizons house most closely resembling a nursery.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Stitches 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.

    Other appearances[edit]

    In Happy Home Designer[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Stitches's Pic erroneously uses the same texture as his Wild World picture rather than his New Leaf picture. Elise's picture shares the same type of error, and they are the only two picture textures to feature a brown border.
