Lionel Gallery

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.


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. 


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.


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.
