By the way, where was your house at, again? It's amazing how little I remember, hopalong.
― Claude, Animal Crossing
Claude (ビネガー, Binegā?, Vinegar) is a lazy rabbit villager from the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase, "hopalong," relates to the nature of rabbits to hop. He only appeared in the early games of the series, but he returned in Happy Home Designer as DLC and has store items with designs of Nintendo consoles as his furniture theme. He was first available from December 1st, 2015 to January 4th, 2016, and later again from April 1st, 2016 to May 1st, 2016.

Claude 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.



Claude is a brown rabbit with lazy eyes and a unibrow. His inner ears are light blue. His initial clothing is the dark polka shirt, a dark brown shirt (which matches his fur) with colorful polka dots.


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

Claude is a lazy villager. He has a laid back lifestyle, and will often talk about food. He is very friendly towards the player and will not get on with snooty or cranky villagers.


Claude has a camping style room with a Desert Carpet, Lunar Horizon wallpaper, a bonfire, cooler, sleeping bag, and a red boom box that plays K.K. Western or K.K. Lullaby. There are two Gyroids, the Tall Poltergoid and the Tall Rustoid. In Animal Forest and Animal Forest+, Claude's house is Asian-styled, with two plants which are from the Bonsai Set, four Yaoki Figures, two shirts, a Frog Statue, one Tall Dingloid, and a Turntable that plays K.K. Folk or K.K. Lullaby.

In New Leaf, Claude's home has a board-gaming theme, with the Board Game item, Donut Box, Whiteboard, Natural Table, Natural Lamp, Elegant Bench, two Elegant Chairs, Brown Seat, Rubber Tree, Potted Ivy, and a Retro Stereo that plays Pondering.

  • While this pun is likely a coincidence, a Clodhopper (Claude-Hopper) is a term for a foolish, awkward or clumsy person, which fits the lazy villagers rather well.

Profile Rabbits are suppsed to be really fast, so Claude must be the exception to the rule. He claims that his big ears create so much wind resistance that he can't move fast, but that's just baloney.
