I was just thinking about how I'd love to have eyes like yours... My eyes are sooooo last week.
― Lionel, New Leaf


Lionel (ライオネル, Raioneru?) is a smug lion villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name, catchphrase, and appearance may refer to the military rank, colonel. He has the music hobby.

Appearance

Lionel is a brown lion with a white mane. The insides of his ears are gold and he has round, tan blush on his cheeks. He has downturned white eyebrows and a long white mustache and goatee. His eyes are bright-blue and, by default, he appears to be looking upwards. The tips of his paws and his tail have a brown tint.

Personality

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

House

In New Leaf, Lionel's house appears suave and sophisticated, which matches his smug personality. He has an editor's desk and chair, a red sofa, a regal lamp, a whirlpool bath, a gorgeous bed, and a rococo chest. He also has a lady palm plant and a turntable playing K.K. Moody. For wallpaper, he has the arched window, and for flooring, he has the fancy carpet.

His house in New Horizons goes for a similar, but more modern take of the previous one. It resembles a high-class penthouse or bachelor's pad overlooking the nightlife of a city, with most of the furniture being monochromatic aside from the phonograph.
