“No one can compete with my crazy stay-awakeness skills, maaan!”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.
― Bud, City Folk
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'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.
|City Folk||New Leaf|
|New Leaf (Exterior)|
As an islander, he has a favorite fruit and a fruit that he is allergic to in Wild World and City Folk. Feeding him the allergy fruit will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. Bud loves pears, but is allergic to peaches.

Bud lives life in the only real way: buff and tough. Bustling with muscles, ripped to the tip, et cetera.
