― Billy, Animal Crossing

Billy (アーシンド, Āshindo?) is a jock goat villager in the Animal Crossing series. He originally appeared only in the Animal Crossing games, although he was discovered in the data for Happy Home Designer. His name comes from the name for male goats, billy. His catchphrase, "dagnaabit," comes from "dag nab it," an exclamation of dismay used stereotypically by older men. He might be mistaken for Gruff, whose Japanese name is Billy, while his Japanese name means "Ah, I'm tired." He has the play hobby.

Billy returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.


Billy in Animal Crossing

Billy is a brown goat with yellow horns and pink inside his ears. He has a tuft of stringy yellow hair on the top of his head. His eyes are closed fully. He has a white beard under his mouth. Despite his elderly appearance giving him the look of a cranky villager, he is a jock. His initial clothing is the Sharp Outfit, which was changed to the Hanten Jacket in New Horizons.


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

Billy has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Billy is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Billy.


In Animal Forest and Animal Forest+, Billy 's house is Japanese themed with various items adding to the style including the whole Vase set, a samurai, and a lantern. Other furniture includes the Oombloid and a Glass-top table. He has the Modern Screen and the Tatami Floor as his choice of wallpaper and flooring. He has no stereo, so therefore, no music is playing.

In Animal Crossing, Billy's house is set up like a public restroom, with each Exotic Screen beside each toilet with some other various items like a soda pop machine a Aloe and a trash bin.

Profile You won't hear anyone calling Billy an old goat. He may be getting along, but he acts like a kid. Why, even some of the youngers in the village can't run as long or as fast as this tough old-timer.
