Y'know, I do believe I recognize a few of these folks from back in the day! Gahaha!
― Cyd, New Horizons

Cyd (パンクス, Pankusu?, Punks) is a cranky elephant villager introduced in New Horizons, and later Pocket Camp. Cyd is an alternate spelling of Sid, as in Sid Vicious, which, along with his Japanese name Punks, references his appearance as a wearer of punk fashion. His initial phrase, " rockin' ", reflects his aesthetic as well.

He has the music hobby.


Cyd is a red elephant. His hands, feet, trunk, and ears fade to black ends and his nails are teal. He has an indigo mohawk and tail, his mohawk being spiky and drooping to his right. His eyes are very squinted, with a big black pupil looking to the side. Unlike most elephant villagers, his mouth is in the middle like Axel's. His face overall has a very sly expression.


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


Cyd's house has a punk/metal theme. He has various furniture from the Ironwood Set in the Old variation and a red Drum Set. K.K. Metal is playing on a red Throwback Skull Radio. For wallpaper and flooring, he has the Skull wall and Skull-print flooring.

Pocket Camp

Cyd was added to Pocket Camp in the March 20, 2020 update, alongside all other villagers new to New Horizons.

Cyd's preferred theme is cool. His profile reads:

❝ On an average day, you can find Cyd posted up in his bedroom, rocking out to his favourite music. He loves to crank up the volume, but he's also mindful of his neighbors.❞
