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, which was changed to the Three-ball Tee in New Horizons. 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.
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, Boyd 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. Boyd will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.
