Tell me, <player>, what's new, lion cub?
― Leopold, Animal Crossing

Leopold (ティーチャ―, Tīchā?, Teacher) is a lion villager with a smug (formerly jock) personality. His name is a real-life one which has a root word of "leo", Latin for lion, while his Japanese name, literally "teacher" transliterated, is a reference to his goal of being a professor. He has the education hobby.

Leopold returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.


Leopold in Animal Crossing

Leopold is a lion with a beige "ecru" color to his fur, and a lighter beige color to his muzzle. He has a green mane, which looks like long green hair. His initial clothing is the Noble Shirt. He also wears black thin frames glasses as accessories. The way his face is designed makes him look like a lazy villager.


Leopold's personality changes from a jock villager in Animal Crossing to a smug villager in New Leaf.

In Animal Crossing

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

Leopold has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Leopold is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Leopold.

In New Leaf

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

Smug villagers are very polite, kind, and gentleman-like. As a smug villager, Leopold will get along easily with other villagers. Smug villagers get along well with most villagers, their personality appearing to be a mix of the other personality types. Smug villagers will stroke their egos from time to time, going on about how cool they are.

Generally, Leopold will get along with lazy, normal, snooty and peppy villagers, and may conflict with cranky villagers.


Leopold's house has a rather huge amount of the Classic Series in his house, with many furniture such as the Classic Table and the Classic Sofa, Leopold even has the Classic Vanity including two Harmonoids as well as a harp, with the Wallpaper being the Classic Wall and the Flooring is the Classic Rug. There is no Stereo, but if he obtains one K.K. Gumbo is played. However, in New Horizons, his house is decorated with the Lecture-Hall set as well as the School series.

Profile Leopold's athleticism is balanced by an intelligent mind. He's always dreamed of being a teacher, but until a school gets built in town, he'll just have to wait. In the meantime, he exercises... his brain!
