If there's anything I can do to repay your devotion... Hey! Idiot! I'm being sarcastic, you know!
― Boris after not seeing the player for a very long time, Animal Crossing

Boris (ダリー Darī?, Daley) is a cranky pig villager. His name presumably comes from the word "boar," an animal similar to a pig, usually wild. His initial phrase, "schnort," is pronounced similarly to "snort," a noise pigs and boars make.

Boris 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.

He has the nature hobby.


Boris in Animal Crossing.

Boris is a blue pig with a large pink snout and slanted eyes. His teeth suggest that he has an underbite, but it is more likely they are tusks. Because his eyes are half-closed and slanted, he looks as though he is angry, yet he is smiling. His initial clothing is a Kafei's Shirt, a Splendid Tee in New Leaf, and a Desert Outfit in New Horizons. His eyelids are yellow in Animal Forest, but change to a light blue in later games. He has yellow inner ears, red in Animal Forest, and light blue hooves, pink in Animal Forest.


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

Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than most other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Boris will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Boris will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


In Animal Forest e+, Boris' house has no specific theme, so it can be be considered an ordinary household containing a Wide-Screen TV, computer, writing desk and chair, and a pothos. He also owns two gyroids along with a bug and a fish. A train set, globe and Red Checked shirt are also found in his house. Boris has the Green Wall and Ceramic Tile for his wallpaper and flooring respectively.

In New Leaf, Boris' house interior is designed mostly around a home theater appearance. There is a wide-screen TV at the back, accompanied by two small red tables each with a speaker each. There is a black table two units behind the TV, along with a cylindrical box of popcorn on top of the right-hand side of the table. There is a theater seat behind the table. One stage light appears at the back. Two stereos appear on the side.

In New Horizons, Boris' house interior has an Egyptian appearance.

Profile Boris is a pig in more ways than one. First off, he snorts a lot. And he hates to clean. The funny thing is, he hates it when things are dirty, too. So keep things clean or you'll be hearing about it!
