Tucker is an elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. 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.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Tucker from New Leaf.

Appearance[edit]

Tucker is a brown elephant with upward curving tusks, which make him resemble a woolly mammoth.

Personality[edit]

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.
