― Joey, City Folk

Joey (リチャード, Richādo?, Richard) is a lazy duck villager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game in the series. The origin of his name is mostly unknown, although it could possibly reference the character Joey Tribbiani from the television series Friends, due to his similar hobby of eating and relaxing. He appears on the album cover for K.K. Parade. He has the play hobby.


Joey in Animal Crossing

Joey is a yellow duck with thick, dark-gray eyebrows, small dot eyes, an orange beak and no hair. He wears a nappy/diaper which is considered by some to also look like a metal-plated under-belly, while others have noted it also looks like a Sumo Wrestler's loincloth, which coincides with his goal. His initial clothing is a No. 3 shirt. Joey most resembles a Pekin duckling in real life.


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

As a lazy villager, Joey 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. Joey 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.

Profile Joey seems to like life in the backyard. In fact, he likes it so much, his whole house looks like it's outdoors. Run through the sprinkler, relax in the hammock, then grill up some food on the BBQ!
