Cube is a lazy penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name may come from ice cubes, relating to his species' habitat. It may also come from the GameCube logo that is on his default shirt in Animal Crossing.

In New Horizons, Cube 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 Cube from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Cube is a black and white emperor penguin with yellow-orange cheeks and a large beak. His flippers, back, and part of his neck are turquoise blue. His head is a glossy black, and his stomach is polished white. Cube has large white eyes with black, cross-shaped pupils, resembling screws or possibly even the directional-pad of a Nintendo controller. He wore an exclusive-to-Japan shirt with the Nintendo 64 logo on it in Doubutsu no Mori but was changed to the GameCube logo for the 2002 international release.

Personality[edit]

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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Cube 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.
