Have you ever been to a wedding, (player)? Well, lemme tell you, it's so fun!
― Derwin, Wild World

Derwin (ボン, Bon?) is a lazy duck villager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in all Animal Crossing games so far. His name likely comes from the famous scientist, Charles Darwin. His initial phrase is a reference to his name and could possibly be a reference to the state of absolute idiocy. He has the play hobby.


Derwin in Animal Crossing

Derwin is a blue duck who appears to have thick glasses, a few freckles, and orange hair on the top of his head, giving him an appearance similar to that of a stereotypical "nerd". He has a yellow beak and feet, and his eyes almost always seem to be closed or squinting. His initial shirt is the Yellow Bar Shirt. In Animal Forest, Derwin has a few differences; for example, his freckles are black instead of white and his hair is shorter. His resemblance is uncanny to that of Pate.


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

As a lazy villager, Derwin 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. Derwin 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.


In City Folk and Wild World, Derwin's house has the tartan floor and library wallpaper. His furniture consists of a basic green bed, a refrigerator, sink, and others. There is also a desk in his home. If Derwin receives a stereo, it will play The K. Funk. He has two Gyroids, the Metatoid and Mini Metatoid. He also has a dharma. In Animal Forest, Derwin's house has a Asian, Library theme towards it, including a Dharma and two gyroids. Derwin's house in Animal Crossing has a slight lab and study, with many plants and fishes, as well as two gyroids, four fossils and a computer. In New Leaf, his house is very school-themed.

Profile Derwin isn't the sharpest duck on the pond. He was walking around one day, and someone yelled "Duck!" And instead of ducking, he turned around and said, "Yes?" A soccer ball whacked him, and now he wears glasses.
