Boyd Gallery
Boyd (ボイド, Boido?) is a cranky gorilla villager from the Animal Crossing series, originally exclusive to Animal Forest e+ through his e-Reader card.

Boyd 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 fitness hobby.


Boyd is a brown gorilla with beige skin and a black nose with nostrils with shaggy fur; the lighter covering the majority of his body, with the darker brown fur covering his cuffs, belly and ankles. He also has beige hands and feet. On his face, he has thick tan lips and orange tints on both sides of his cheeks, and his eyes are small and black. He initially wears the Good-fortune Clothes. He adopts a seemingly irritated or angry pose, thanks to his furrowed brow, stereotypically associated with villagers of the cranky personality, like him.


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

Boyd is a cranky villager, which means he will act rude and like a mature man, but he will warm up to the player being nicer. Boyd will admire lazy villagers' laid-back attitude, and he will also get along with female snooty villagers, due to similar rude personalities. He will appear to be rude at the start, but try to do tasks and he will be a bit nicer.


Boyd's house has the same furniture styling as Freya's house, but he has changed the flooring to the Exquisite Rug and the wallpaper to the Library Wallpaper and has a high-end stereo that plays K.K. Jazz.
