― Lionel, New Leaf
Lionel (ライオネル, Raioneru?) is a smug lion villager in New Leaf. His name, catchphrase and appearance may refer to the military rank Colonel.


Lionel is a brown lion with a white mane. He has brown ears and white eyebrows. He also has a long white mustache and a small goatee. His eyebrows make him look smug, like his personality. He also bears a slight resemblance to Colonel Sanders.


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. As a smug villager he will stroke his ego from time to time, going on about how cool he is.

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


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 lady palm plant and a turntable playing K.K. Moody. He has the arched window wallpaper and fancy carpet.
