Thank you very much.
― Picture quote, Wild World

Elvis (キング, Kingu?, King) is a cranky lion villager from the Animal Crossing series. His catchphrase ("unh-hunh") and picture quote ("thank you very much"), as well as his overall appearance are references to Elvis Presley, the famous singer. Elvis Presley was known as "The King" - a reference that lends itself to the lion, which is known in popular culture as "the king of the jungle." His quote from New Leaf is possibly a reference to the Cowardly Lion, a character in The Wizard of Oz. His birthday, July 23rd, makes him a Leo. This could be a reference to the fact that in the legend, the Leo is a lion, king of the jungle, possibly explaining his villager type and appearance. He has the education hobby.


Elvis in Wild World

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. 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, Elvis 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.


In Wild World, Elvis has two exotic screens, two stone pillars, two regal sofas, two thrones and a treasure chest. He also has the arched window on his walls and stone flooring. If given a stereo, it will play K.K. Casbah. He has no Gyroids.

In New Leaf, Elvis has two stone pillars, two thrones, two Rococo Series sofas, two Gorgeous Series dressers, a plate armor, and a pot of red roses. He owns a phonograph, which plays K.K. Casbah.
