Benjamin Amiibo Artwork

Benjamin amiibo artwork

Benjamin is a yellow and white dog with very thick, black, eyebrows. He also has white whiskers and a big brown button nose with a white tail. He looks similar to Champagne, another dog villager, and Joey the lazy duck. He seems to look like a labrador retreiver.

Personality

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

House

Benjamin has Wandering playing on his stereo. He has most pieces from the Sloppy Series. He has the Common Flooring and Paw-Print Wallpaper.

Trivia

  • His Japanese name is Hachi, and is a reference to a famous dog in Japan by the name of Hachikō. In the history of Hachikō, his owner and himself would regularly meet up at a train station to walk home together daily. One day, the owner suffered a cerebral hemorrage and died. The dog continued to wait at the station for years despite his owner never getting off the train. Locals were at first hostile towards the dog, but changed their opinions when media got ahold of the story. Hachikō became a national sensation and a symbol of loyalty.
  • Before the Welcome Amiibo update, he was the only villager to own Wandering. When the update arrived, a few other villagers owned it too.
  • His Korean name may be a reference to the popular 1989 comedy film "영구와 땡칠이"(Young-guwa ddaengchiri) where the main character has a dog named Ddaengchiri. Benjamin unintentionally bears a resemblance to him.
