― Clyde, New Leaf

Clyde (デースケ, Dēsuke?) is a lazy horse villager who first appears in City Folk. His name is possibly derived from Clydesdale, a horse breed. His catchphrase comes from the noise horses make with their hooves when walking on a hard surface, clip-clop. His name is shared with a name or alternate name of a Pac-Man character, much like Pinky and Sly. He appears on the album cover for K.K. March. He has the play hobby.


Clyde in City Folk

Clyde is a bright yellow horse with a dark brown crest and a tail. He also has dark brown hair, which curls to one side. The inside of his ears match the pink color of the polka dots on his shirt. His coloration is similar to Al, who is a yellow-green and dark green gorilla who also made his debut in City Folk. Clyde's eyes look like buttons, and he initially wears the Bubble Gum Shirt.


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

As a lazy villager, Clyde will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Clyde will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.


Clyde's house has a very fruity theme. He has a pineapple bed, apple clock, pear dresser, and orange chair, as well as the fruity wallpaper and flooring. His stereo plays K.K. Dixie. His house looks a lot like Tangy's. He may also have a red stereo.
