I'm not bald! I've just got fine feathers, that's all!
― Picture quote, Wild World

Apollo (アポロ, Aporo?, Apollo) is a cranky eagle villager in the Animal Crossing series. He also appears in Gekijōban Dōbutsu no Mori as a minor character. Apollo is a bald eagle, specifically, the national bird of the United States of America, hence his July 4th birthday (Independence Day in the United States). He has the music hobby.

Apollo's name is probably a reference to Apollo 11, the first manned mission to land on the moon. Its lunar module, LM-5, used the callsign "Eagle", and a bald eagle also appears on the mission patch. He appears on the album cover for Soulful K.K.

Apollo in Animal Crossing

Apollo is a bald eagle with a dark gray body, feathers, and a white head. This relates to his picture quote. He has a yellow beak and feet with white talons at the end of them. Apollo's wings slowly fade into a white color. His eyes are white semi circles embroidered with a black outline and all-black pupils. He initially wears a zipper shirt (which was changed to the flight jacket in New Horizons) and carries a paper parasol around when it rains.


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

Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Apollo will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty, and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature.


In Animal Crossing, Apollo's house is a mix of furniture that includes items from the modern series, the chess set, and some fossils. His stereo plays Soulful K.K. in every game except New Leaf, where he plays K.K. Rock.

In New Horizons, Apollo's house is white with a white vertical-panes door and black tile roof. The interior is the shutter wall and slate flooring. He has a black diner sofa, a black diner counter table, a red diner mini table, and a blue billiard table. He also has a black folding floor lamp, a black rattan bed, a high-end stereo, a black potted fan palm, and a cars magazine. When Apollo crafts a recipe, he uses a natural DIY workbench.

In Gekijōban Dōbutsu no Mori[]


Apollo is a minor character in Gekijōban Dōbutsu no Mori with his Animal Crossing name. He appears grumpy like in the games, and slowly warms up to Ai after the incident with Yu and Halberd (Alfonso) knocking over Ai into his flower patch, causing a small rift between them. He forgives her, but only because he did not realize Ai was still nervous around him. In the film, there are rumors that he and Whitney, the arctic wolf, were once a couple. This is apparent when they are close to each other, giving vacant stares at each other, and never really talking to each other. Also, in the end credits of the movie, a bouquet of blue roses appear in front of Whitney's doorstep and Apollo seems to be the only one in the village with a garden with blue roses.

He was voiced by Masaki Terasoma.

  • Oddly, despite his name, species, and birthday being related to the United States, he does not ask for an American-themed home request in Happy Home Designer. Instead, Peanut asks for that theme.
  • Apollo's affinity for rock music, as well as his silver and black retro decor in New Horizons, are references to twentieth-century American pop culture. NASA's Apollo Project lasted throughout the 1960s and into the early 1970s.
  • In New Leaf, Apollo's preferred style is Rock, and his preferred color is White. He dislikes the style Basic.
  • In New Horizons, Apollo's preferred styles are Cool/Simple, and his preferred color is Black.
