Bones (トミ, Tomi?, Tommy) is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game to date. His name probably originated from the fact that dogs famously love to chew bones, as well as the phrase "lazy bones". He has the play hobby.


Bones in Animal Crossing

Bones is a black and white dog with a single brown spot. His design seems to be based off of a Beagle. His whole body is white with dark tips on his paws and ears. He has a black nose and a curly smile somewhat like a real dog. Bones initially wears the caveman tunic, which was changed to the Printed Fleece Sweater in New Horizons.


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

As a lazy villager, Bones 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. Bones 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 New Leaf, Bones' house has a few items from the Kiddie Series, such as the Kiddie wall which matches his Green Floor. He also has one gyroid, a computer, a writing desk, and an office chair. Bones has no stereo in his house initially, but once he obtains a one, it will play K.K. Ragtime. In New Leaf, it instead plays Forest Life.

In New Horizons, Bones' house is no longer kiddie themed. Instead, it has kind of a library theme to it. He has a bath mat places near his door inside. He also has two chairs, a desk, and a tape deck that plays K.K. Etude.

Profile Some dogs are incredible. They become rescue dogs or police dogs and have important jobs. Other dogs can do tricks. Then there are the dogs that just dig holes and chase cars. Guess which type Bones is...

Wishbone, titular character of the Wishbone series.

  • While likely a coincidence, many fans have compared Bones to "Wishbone", a dog from a 90's PBS series of the same name, who is also white with a brown ring around one eye, and colored ears. Taking this even further, Bones in New Horizons has a library themed house. Wishbone, in his show, would re-enact classic literature, inserting himself as the main characters.
  • As sometimes revealed on April Fool's Day in New Leaf, Bones is the eldest of seven siblings.
  • Bones is afraid of the mummy mask in New Leaf.
