Lucky (ラッキー,Rakkī?, Lucky) is a lazydogvillager 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".
Lucky is a dog that is almost fully wrapped in bandages. His left eye is seen peeking through his bandages, which is yellow with no pupil. The fur around his eye, on his ears and on his tail is fully black. His initial shirt is the No. 23 Shirt. Lucky carries the Bat Umbrella when it rains.
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 swords 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 styled house like in the past games, 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 is not Egyptian, but resembles a graveyard. This includes a skeleton, three different variations of graves, a red leaf pile, two tiki torches on either side of the room, a 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.
Lucky's preferred theme is historical. His profile says:
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 took luck into his own hands when he went on that fateful fishing trip last week. Between casting his rod too far, snipping his paw on a rock, and losing his balance and falling overboard, Lucky's luck held true to town.
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 around his body.
Some have speculated that Lucky is an undead version of Walker, as the color of their ears and tails are the same, they both have the lazy-type personality, and the difference of the numbers on their default shirts is 44, a number foreboding death in some east Asian superstitions.
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." This is the only official explanation for Lucky's appearance, with no other statements from Nintendo in any way.
