I'm gonna get Katrina to read my fortune and make sure my dinner is extra good tonight!
― Al, City Folk

Al (たもつ, Tamotsu?) is a lazy gorilla villager from the Animal Crossing series. His first appearance was in City Folk and Al reappears in New Leaf. His picture phrase links to his lazy personality as lazy villagers love eating. He has the fitness hobby.


Al in City Folk

Al is a black gorilla with yellow skin on his hands, feet, stomach, and the majority of his face. He has large earthy eyes with black pupils and bushy eyebrows. He initially wears the Red Warmup Suit.


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

As a lazy villager, Al will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Al will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.


In New Leaf, his house resembles a gym. He owns many different types of exercise equipment, such as a weight bench, a punching bag, and a boxing mat. He also has a ball return and a scoreboard in the top-left of his house. His ringside table has a Tape Deck that plays Steep Hill on top. Al's wallpaper is the Concrete Wall, and his flooring is the Lab Floor.

In New Horizons, Al's house like a workout spot with a punching bag
