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.


As a lazy villager, he will enjoy napping and talking about food, as well as appearing calm and relaxed through most circumstances. Like all villagers, he will enjoy the usual hobbies. When he talks about clothes, he may mention his alter ego, "Fashion Lad", a made-up hero by lazy villagers who tackle fashion disasters. Snooty and jock villagers will find it difficult to get along with him, due to his relaxed lifestyle, which may cause offense to these villagers. Overall, he will get along well with other villagers in the town.

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.

Profile Boomer left the big city where errands, gardening, buying, selling, writing, digging, fishing, and bug-collecting all wore him down. One day, got up and moved to the islands, where he could lie about in the sun and avoid the crowds.
