― Dozer, Animal Crossing

Dozer (スリープ, Surīpu?, Sleep) is a lazy bear from the Animal Crossing series, seen only in Animal Forest, Animal Crossing, and Animal Forest e+. As his name suggests, he appears very sleepy, and his initial phrase is "zzzzzz", the onomatopoeia for snoring. His Japanese name, Sleep, also refers to his personality.

His name is shown in the New Leaf Prima Guide, but he does not appear in New Leaf.

He also has not appeared in New Leaf (including Welcome amiibo) or New Horizons. This makes him the only bear to have not appeared since Animal Crossing.

Dozer in Animal Forest

Dozer is a purple bear with a tan muzzle, shiny black nose, and a curly black unibrow, similar to Claude's. His paws are brown and the insides of his ears are tan. His eyes are almost always closed, as if he's sleeping or dozing off. He initially wears the Bear Shirt.


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

As a lazy villager, Dozer 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. Dozer 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.


Dozer's house has six lamps around a classic bed. Two Exotic Lamps, two Cabana Lamps and two Regal Lamps. He also has two gyroids, an owl clock and a metronome. Dozer has an Opulent Rug and a Manor Wall.

Profile Dozer's fond at saying that one shouldn't hurry through life. His theory is that good things come to those who wait. Then again, every time opportunity knocks, Dozer's in a deep sleep. Bummer.

  • In an official Animal Crossing poster featuring all of the villagers in New Leaf, the original version initially had a bunch of mistakes. One mistake was Nate being incorrectly labeled as Dozer. This was very odd, as this was the New Leaf roster, and Dozer hadn't been seen in an Animal Crossing series game since Animal Crossing. Aside from them both being male bears with the lazy personality, they look nothing alike. It had been fixed and everyone who ordered it got the revised poster for free along with an apology.
  • He shares Japanese names with the Pokémon Drowzee.
    • The only other villager to share a Japanese name with a Pokémon is Lucky, and coincidentally, they are both lazy villagers.
