Bok bok bok?! Just kidding. A huh huh huh!
― Picture quote, Wild World

Benedict (ぺしみち, Peshimichi?) is a lazy chicken villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name most likely comes from the meal, "eggs benedict", which consists of a poached egg placed with bacon on an English muffin and covered in Hollandaise sauce. He originally appeared in the Japanese only Animal Forest e+, and returned in Wild World. He appears on the album cover for K.K. March. He has the play hobby.


Benedict in Animal Forest e+

Benedict is a scarlet red rooster, with a white face with swollen cheeks along with white tips on his wings and tail and has a yellow beak along with yellow legs and a comb. His eyes are completely black and his eyebrows are nearly stable and black as well and when he smiles, he closes his eyes. His initial clothing is the Two-Ball Shirt.


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

As a lazy villager, Benedict 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. Benedict 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 Animal Forest e+, Benedict has the same furniture styling as Penny does, only that he has used the Backyard fence and Charcoal Flooring for his choice of Wallpaper and Flooring. His Tape Deck plays I Love You.

Benedict's house in Wild World and City Folk keeps the construction theme similar to his house in Animal Forest e+. He has many items from the Construction Theme in his home, but also has the Wave Breaker, as well as a hospital bed and a drilloid. If given a stereo, it will play I Love You, a rather bizarre choice that contrasts the theme of his house.

In New Leaf, Benedict's house has the theme of a summer barbecue, with many items such as the backyard pool and the barbecue. He has a cassette player.

Pocket Camp

Benedict was added to Pocket Camp in the November 24, 2020 update.

Benedict's preferred theme is historical, and he primarily gives wood as a reward. His profile reads:

❝ Benedict’s convinced he’s forgetful because he was abducted by aliens and they put a chip in his head. If only he could remember he was just born forgetful.❞
