Hey, have you ever seen this weird, spooky thing when you're walking around late at night?
― Buzz, Animal Crossing

Buzz (ひでよし, Hideyoshi?) is a cranky eagle villager from the Animal Crossing series. He initially only appeared in the original games, though has been found in the data for Happy Home Designer. His name refers to either the word "buzzard" (a catchall term for several different birds of prey) or Buzz Aldrin (the pilot of the "Eagle" lunar module of Apollo 11). His Japanese name, when combined with his samurai outfit in his picture/poster in New Horizons, refers to either Toyotomi Hideyoshi or Sasaki Hideyoshi, two daimyo and samurai from different times in feudal Japan.

Buzz returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.

He has the nature hobby.


Buzz in Animal Crossing

Buzz is a milk chocolate brown eagle who initially wears a Racer 6 Shirt (a 9-Ball Tee in New Horizons). His hooked beak is orange-yellow with a coal black tip and his legs are the same color as his beak with white talons. His eyebrows are pushed over his white and black eyes so that he looks angry most of the time.


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, Buzz 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. Buzz will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


From Animal Forest to Animal Forest e+, Buzz's house has a somewhat outdoor and musical style, with his choice flooring and wallpaper being the Stone Flooring and the Ivy Wall. He has six chess pieces at the back of his room, three black and three white. He also has a country guitar and a rock guitar. He also has a blue bench, a Flame Umbrella, trash can, a plant, and a Red Boom Box that plays The K. Funk.

His house in New Horizons is in the style of a mountain rest stop, with parking lot flooring and a mountain range as wallpaper, the furniture consists of a variety vending machines, a picnic table, and a car-shaped bed.

Profile Buzz used to be quite the aerial acrobat, always zipping to and fro. He doesn't do that anymore. Whatever you do, don't ask him why, though. He's a little embarrassed about it.
