Buck (ヴァヤシコフ, Vayashikofu?) is a jock horse villager in the Animal Crossing series. As a jock villager, he will act friendly and competitive when around the player. His name may refer to a vaulting horse used in gymnastics, which also gets the name from a type of horse sport where a rider tries to stay on top of a horse while it is "bucking." His initial phrase is a play on the word "partner," which is pronounced "pardner" by southern people. So far, he has appeared in every game.

He is featured on the cover of K.K. Country and he has the fitness hobby.

Buck in Animal Crossing

Buck is a dark green horse with a maroon brown mane. His muzzle and hooves are a creamy white, which resembles a donkey, as well as the shape of his tail. He has grumpy-looking eyes would suggest that he has a cranky personality, but as a jock villager he is more friendly. He initially wears the Eight-ball Tee.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Buck has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Buck is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Buck.


In Animal Crossing, Buck has a mix of exotic and ranch furniture. In the center, there is a ranch couch and a ranch armchair near a classic table. There is an exotic chest, antique clock, and a leather jerkin. In the west, there is an exotic screen. His wallpaper is the Old Brick Wall and his flooring is the Opulent Rug. His phonograph plays K.K. Casbah. Buck has the same house as Natasha from Animal Forest e+, only with different flooring and wallpaper. Moreover, his favorite song changes in AFe+ to My Place, which plays in subsequent installments.

In Wild World and City Folk, Buck has the same furniture as before, but with a few pieces added and gotten rid of. New pieces include the classic wardrobe, classic bookcase, and fireplace. The exotic screen is no longer in Buck's house. The phonograph plays My Place. The flooring and wallpaper are the same.

In New Leaf, Buck's house is different from the past games, with newer furniture. He has a relaxed decoration, somehow messy. He owns some retro furniture like an old TV. Papers and clothes can be seen scattered around his house. His phonograph plays My Place.

Profile Buck is a competitor through and through, which is why he hates losing. It drives him totally nuts. You really don't want to be around him when he loses. There's a reason people call him "Buck", you know.

Buck's preferred theme is sporty. His profile says:

The only way to describe Buck is competitive. He tries so hard at everything that he usually ends up overexerting himself and getting hurt. You might even say he's the best at it.
