“I'm so sleepy... Anyway, what's going on with you?”
― Cube, New Horizons
Cube (ビス,Bisu?, Bis) is a lazypenguinvillager in the Animal Crossing series who first appears in Animal Forest. He has appeared in every game in the series to date. His English name seems to be a reference to the GameCube, supported by the fact that his starting outfit is the GC logo Shirt. "Cube" could also be a reference to ice cubes. His initial phrase, "d-d-dude," references cold, as words are usually a stutter in cold temperatures. It is similar to Gwen's, Aurora's and Roald's. His initial phrase was changed to "brainfreeze" in New Horizons. He has the play hobby.
Cube is an Emperor Penguin with yellow-orange cheeks. He has a large black beak with a streak of orange across the bottom of it, and his prominent features are his large, white eyes with black, plus (+ or x) shaped pupils. His flippers, back, and very slightly up his neck to the bottom of his head are blue. His head is a glossy black and his stomach is polished white. He initially wears the N64 Logo Shirt in Animal Forest, the GC Logo Shirt in Animal Crossing, and the Big-Dot Tee in Wild World, City Folk, New Leaf, and New Horizons. Cube carries a Petal Parasol on rainy days.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Cube 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. Cube 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.
Cube's house is mainly robot themed. He has a Red Snapper fish in a tank, which he may refuse to part with during Flea Markets. He also has a Daffodil Chair and a Tulip Chair. If Cube has a stereo in his home, it will play K.K. Technopop. For his wallpaper and flooring, he has the Modern Wall and Diner Tile.
In New Leaf, Cube's house has remained its old theme. However, there are now more robot items than previous installments. Diner Tile still serves a role as his house's carpet, but the wallpaper has been changed to Modern Wall. K.K. Technopop still plays from his stereo.
