“I'm watching you!”Butch (ジョン, Jon?, John) is a cranky dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name reflects on the cartoon name given to dogs, usually meaning muscular in appearance. Butch's rottweiler appearance may also relate to his name as they too appear masculine and muscular. His initial phrase, "ROOOOOWF", is a slight adjustment on the spelling of the common onomatopoeic words "woof" and "ruff". He is the first dog with a cranky personality. His Wild World picture quote is also exactly the same as Curt's picture quote. He has appeared in every game so far, including Pocket Camp.
― Picture quote, Wild World
AppearanceButch is an orange and brown dog with white and dark brown tipped paws. He has a dark brown nose with a corkscrew smile and stern-looking eyes with eyebrows the same color as his muzzle. He has dark brown, floppy ears that fade into a caramel color at the tip. His tail is also dark brown and his arms and legs are the same color as his head. He initially wears the Arctic Camo shirt. In Animal Crossing, he initially wears the Houndstooth Knit shirt. His appearance may possibly be inspired by a Rottweiler, Dachshund or Doberman, which all have similar colors.
|Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.|
Butch's house is very Modern styled, with much of the Modern Series including a Modern Bed and a Modern Table with one Nebuloid and a Gold Stereo that plays K.K. Fusion. The wallpaper is the Concrete Wall and the flooring is the Modern Tile.
