Wade is a lazy penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series. After his debut in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he would remain absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. His name may be derived from wading in water, a behavior of penguins when hunting for fish.

In New Horizons, Wade 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]

Appearance[edit]

Wade is a white and black penguin. The top of his head is white, as are his belly and the tops of his arms. He has black eyebrows. Wade appears to be based on a gentoo penguin.

Personality[edit]

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

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

Villager information[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]
