Tucker is a lazy elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name may be derived from "tusks," a physical feature of elephants and mammoths, or, alternatively, it could come from the saying "tucker out," used for when someone is falling asleep easily, in reference to his lazy personality.

In New Horizons, Tucker 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 Tucker from Welcome amiibo.


Tucker is a brown elephant that is meant to look like a woolly mammoth. He has long, white tusks that protrude out of his face and up. Other elephants do not carry this feature. He has ears with yellow highlighting the ends as well as a yellow tipped trunk. His eyes are partially closed with his eyelids being blue-ish purple. His feet and hands are tipped with white nails. He also has shaggy hair on the top of his head.


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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Tucker 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.
