― Felyne, Happy Home Designer

Felyne Gallery

Felyne (アイルー, Airū) is a lazy cat villager that first appeared in Happy Home Designer. He is part of a special Monster Hunter collaboration.[1] He was first available as DLC from November 2nd, 2015 to November 30th, 2015, and later again from March 1st, 2016 to March 31st, 2016.

Felyne also made a return in the updated version of New Leaf. He can be obtained as a villager by tapping in a Monster Hunter amiibo.

Along with other RV-exclusive villagers, Felyne can't be invited to the town if their own house is still present in the town. Once they have packed boxes and left, they may be "adopted" again.


Felyne is a white and brown cat who is based off the Felynes, supporting characters in the Monster Hunter series. He resembles a siamese cat, with cream-colored body and light brown "points" (ears, paws and face).


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

As a lazy villager, Felyne 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. Felyne 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 Happy Home Designer, Felyne has various pieces of the Monster Hunter collaboration series within his house. Almost all of the pieces can be found in Monster Hunter. The item box is found at the beginning of quests, and the cart is used if a hunter faints in Monster Hunter, and the Felynes will take them away. The barbecue spit is an item used in Monster Hunter to cook raw meat, and the wyvern eggs can be found in certain quests in Monster Hunter, where the hunter must take eggs back to the base-camp. The Palico boards can be found in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, in the player's home, and are used to deploy Palicos. Finally, Poogie can also be found in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in the player's home.

In Welcome amiibo, Felyne is now given a pre-designed house. Of the furniture from Happy Home Designer, he has a barbecue spit, a hunter, a Palico board, a hunter's cart, a Felyne guardian, a red wing, and a hunter's hive, as well as the magma wall and floor. In addition, he has two new pieces of furniture based on Monster Hunter Stories. The first is an ornament based on Navirou (named Nabirou in the Japanese version of Stories and all versions of New Leaf), the Felyne owned by the main character, and a Rathalos egg based on its Stories appearance.

  • He was created especially for Happy Home Designer as a new character, just like Filly.
  • He is the only video game crossover villager that is from a third party company.
  • Felyne's RV has furniture based on Navirou, a character from Monster Hunter: Stories. As he was added almost an entire year before the game got localized, it was Navirou's first appearance outside of Japan.
  • His name is a parody of the word "feline", which means cat.
  • Felyne shares a birthday with Carmen, the peppy rabbit.
  • His birthday, January 6th, is the same day as the Epiphany in Italy, Russian Christmas Eve, and the day when the Three Wise Men come to Spain.
