Vladimir is a cranky bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. "Vladimir" is a traditional Russian name, and "nyet," his catchphrase, is Russian for "no"; the juxtaposition of these with his species references the common representation of Russia as a bear.

In New Horizons, Vladimir 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.


Artwork of Vladimir from Animal Crossing.


Vladimir is a pink bear cub with bubblegum pink-tipped paws and muzzle. He also has a scruff of blond hair. His eyebrows are thick and meet in a unibrow. He has buckteeth as well. In Doubutsu no Mori, Vladimir has smaller pupils and a larger nose and mouth.


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

Vladimir is a cranky villager, which means he is stubborn and easily annoyed when things are not going his way. He will appear rude and belittling towards the player, but will eventually warm up to them, considering them to be his only friend. He will find the usual hobbies of fishing, bug catching, fossil hunting, fashion, and furniture collecting considerably more interesting compared to other village types, adding more reason behind the hobbies than other villagers. He will get along with other cranky villagers and snooty villagers, who share the same interests and meaningful discussions. He will often suggest planting false information on peppy villagers when no interesting events are happening in the town, usually to the disgust of the normal villagers.
