“World domination!”Big Top (3ごう, San Gō?, #3) is a lazy elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Animal Forest e+ and also Wild World and City Folk. His name may be a reference to the main arena of a circus, the big top, where elephants are mainly situated in a circus, or it may be a reference to the Disney movie Dumbo, where characters perform at the big top of the circus tent. His initial phrase, "villain", plays along with his role in the group of superhero villagers. He is the third of the six superhero-themed villagers along with Kid Cat, Agent S, Rocket, and Filly. He is often considered the "villain" of the group, supported by his catchphrase and his Wild World picture quote that reads "World domination!". As a lazy villager, Big Top is easy to befriend and makes quick and best friends with the player. He has the play hobby.
― Picture quote, Wild World
AppearanceHe initially wears a No. 3 green shirt which matches his green helmet. He is unique in wearing a helmet, much like Agent S (who wears the No. 2 helmet) and Kid Cat (No. 1), who are also some of the only villagers to wear accessories. He has gray skin, and the tip of his trunk is pink. He has black, half-closed eyes behind his helmet's visor, and like most elephant villagers, his mouth is on the left side of his face (although it is on the other side in his original appearance).

In Animal Forest e+, Big Top's house has the same furniture styling as Bessie's house, but only that he has changed the wallpaper to the Lake Wallpaper and the flooring is the Grass Carpet. Either Surfin' K.K. or K.K. Gumbo plays on his Dice Stereo.
In City Folk and Wild World, Big Top has a Boxing Theme in his house. He owns the boxing themed flooring and wallpaper, along with items such as the blue corner, the ringside table, and the punching bag. He also owns two boxing mats, and a Tape Deck that plays K.K. Metal.
Big Top's house in New Leaf is similar to his house in City Folk. He once again has boxing equipment, such as a weight bench, a punching bag, and two boxing mats. He also has a garbage can, and a 3 lamp, which is fitting due to him being the third superhero villager. His tape deck still plays K.K. Metal, which will fit very well with his sporty house.

Big Top's preferred theme is sporty. His profile says:
Strong as he is, Big Top isn't one for picking fights. He's much more interested in picking berries... or which couch to nap on.
