― Picture quote, Wild World

Lucky (ラッキー, Rakkī?, Lucky) is a lazy dog villager from the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game to date. His name comes from the fact that he has a full body cast and is still alive, making him "lucky". It could also be perceived as ironic, seeing that Lucky is not very lucky at all due to possibly being badly injured or undead. His picture quote in Wild World is an exclamation people say when they hurt themselves. His catchphrase is similar, in that it is a combination of a popular way to interpret the sound dogs make, and saying "ouch".

He has the play hobby.


Lucky in Animal Crossing

Lucky is a dog that is almost fully wrapped in bandages. His left eye is seen peeking through his bandages, which is glowing yellow with no pupil. The fur around his eye, on his ears and on his tail is fully black. His initial shirt is the #23 Shirt.


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

As a lazy villager, Lucky 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. Lucky 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.


Lucky's house in all games except New Horizons has had an Egyptian theme to it. In the Animal Crossing games, Lucky's house had two Legend of Zelda Master Swords, a bookshelf, a Stone Lantern, a Bus-Stop Sign, a Potbelly Stove, and two squat dingloids. In Wild World and City Folk, his house is still unchanged with two dingloids as usual.

In New Leaf, although he keeps his Egyptian-themed house like in the past games, adding two Pyramids and a Sphinx, he has changed the flooring and instead he keeps one Tall Dingloid instead of two dingloids.

In New Horizons, the exterior of the house are black shackled tiles with white trim as the border. The door is a light grey while the roof is a sea foam green. The interior of his house, however, is not Egyptian-theme in the previous versions of the games, but resembles more of a graveyard. Included in the house are a skeleton, three different variations of the Western-style stone, a red-leaf pile, two tiki torches on either side of the room, a wooden bucket and a skull music player. The wallpaper depicts a decaying brick wall while the floor resembles a dirt path with various branches and twigs.

In all games, he plays K.K. Dirge in his house.

❝ It's rare to meet someone who fails to live up to his name so spectacularly, but Lucky doesn't seem to mind. So, maybe he's pretty lucky after all.❞

  • Lucky's default No. 23 Shirt may be a reference to the 23 Enigma, a phenomenon relating misfortune to the number 23.
  • Lucky bears a slight resemblance to a gibdo from The Legend of Zelda franchise and Mr. Bump from The Mr. Men, as both wear bandages.
  • According to "The Crossing Guardian," the now-defunct official website for the original Animal Crossing, Lucky was given his bandages following "a bizarre fishing accident involving a hook and two bass."[3] This is the only official explanation for Lucky's appearance, with no other statements from Nintendo saying otherwise.
  • In New Horizons, Lucky's eyes will glow at night.
    • Lucky and Ione are the only non-robot villagers that glow in the dark.
  • Lucky's name in French, Ramsès, refers to an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the same name.
  • As sometimes revealed on April Fool's Day in New Leaf, Lucky is the fourth of a set of quintuplets.
  • In New Leaf, Lucky is afraid of the mummy mask.
    • This is ironic, as Lucky himself, in a way, resembles a mummy.
  • In the Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Pocket Poll, Lucky won the category for "Villager I'd Like to Cheer On".
  • He shares a Japanese name with the Pokémon Chansey, making him one of the villagers that share a Japanese name with a Pokémon.
    • Ironically, Chansey can only be female, and Lucky is a male.
