Yay! Thanks for coming to celebrate my birthday!
― Boomer, during his birthday, in New Leaf

Boomer (ショーイ, Shōi?) is a lazy penguin villager who first appears in Animal Forest+ as an islander. He was absent in Wild World, but reappears in City Folk. His name most likely comes from a character of the same name in Battlestar Galactica, who was also a pilot; more evidence towards this is how his room is space-themed in New Leaf. His initial catchphrase "human", is another reference to Battlestar Galactica, in which Boomer is a non-human character living among humans. He has the fitness hobby.


Boomer in Animal Crossing

Boomer wears an aviator's hat and goggles. As an islander, his initial shirt is the blue aloha shirt. His eyes are small, black rectangles, looking as if his eyes were closed. His main body color is olive green, while his flippers and belly are white, and his beak and legs are yellow. When it rains, he carries the Camo Umbrella.


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

As a lazy villager, Boomer 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. Boomer 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.

Fruit Allergy

As an islander, Boomer has a favorite fruit and a fruit that he is allergic to. Feeding him the allergic fruit will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. Boomer is allergic to cherries and loves pears.


Boomer's house has an island feel, and he uses the Tropical Floor and the Western Vista as his choice of flooring and wallpaper. He will also have Aloha K.K. playing on a stereo when he acquires one.

In New Leaf, his house has received a makeover, and now uses the sky wall paired with plank flooring in a space pilot theme. He retains Aloha K.K. as his music, and has a reel-to-reel in the corner that plays it. Inside his home are a captain's monitor; one regular, two small, and two large space consoles, and two space captain's seats.

Pocket Camp

Boomer was added to Pocket Camp in the August 26, 2021 update.

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