― Bud, City Folk

Bud (グラさん, Gura-san?) is a jock lion villager in the Animal Crossing series. In Animal Forest+, Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+, he is an islander. His New Leaf picture quote is a reference to how jock villagers love working out. He shares a birthday with Leif. His English name might be a reference to the slang name for marijuana. His Japanese name may be a play on "glasses", referring to his shades. Like most lions, he is a Leo. His name is Pekoe's catchphrase. He is featured on the cover of K.K. Ska and he has the fitness hobby.


Bud in Animal Crossing

He wears pink-rimmed sunglasses with dark lenses, so his eye color is unknown, but in Animal Crossing for the GameCube, if looked from at the right angle, the player can see that Bud has small, black eyes with very small white pupils. His skin tone is darker than that of his mane, enhancing his "surfer-dude" appearance as well as wearing the Blue Aloha Shirt in Animal Crossing and the Flowery Shirt in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf.


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

Bud has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Bud 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 Bud.


Bud's house in Wild World and City Folk is beach themed, with beach chairs, beach tables, a red boom box, a ukulele, and a surfboard. For wallpaper, he has the Tropical Vista, and the Tropical Ground for his carpet. When he has a stereo, it has K.K. Ska playing on it.

Profile Bud used to live in town. He had to move, because he was so laid-back he made the other animals look like workaholics. He has a keen eye, though, and he isn't afraid to speak his mind. His main interest? Surfing!
