Stu is a lazy bull villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. His name is likely derived from "beef stew."

In New Horizons, Stu has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.


Artwork of Stu from Animal Crossing.


Stu is an indigo bull with pink eyelids and orange horns. He has lazy eyes and some hair at the top of his head. His hair, muzzle, hooves and tail are a lighter shade of blue. He may be based off of Paul Bunyan's ox, Babe.


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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Stu 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.
