“I'm super hungry, yawwwn. Man, shopping really works up an appetite!”
― Nate, New Leaf
Nate (バッカス,Bakkasu?, Bacchus) is a lazybearvillager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared as a villager in every version of Animal Crossing except Wild World. His English name might come from "hibernate". His Japanese name is from Bacchus, the Roman God of wine. Nate's initial catchphrase, "yawwwn", is in reference to his personality. He has the play hobby.
Nate is an orange bear with a seaweed green squiggly unibrow. His mouth meets at his nose, making his resting facial position a frown. He also has three freckles on each cheek, and he has light pink inside his ears. His whole body is orange, except for some white on his face, hands, and feet. He has a shiny black nose and an opened mouth. Nate initially wears a Spring Shirt, and carries a Forest Umbrella on rainy days.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Nate 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. Nate 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.
In Animal Forest, Nate's house is very Asian styled; there is a Retro TV, a Hearth, and two Gyroids. The wallpaper is the Shanty Wall and the flooring is the Planked Tammi.
In New Leaf, Nate's house has a mossy garden feel towards it. He owns a Hammock, an Ice-Cream Case, two Mountain Standees, a Refrigerator, a Backyard Pool, and a Bug Zapper. He also has a Recycling Bin, where the player can dispose of trash without paying a fee. His wallpaper is the Ivy Wall, and his flooring is the Daisy Meadow. He owns a Red Boombox on top of a Minimalist Minitable, that plays K.K. Lullaby.
Take one look at Nate and you'll see why he raises a few eyebrows. His lime-green eyebrows make some people call him a freak- Others call him a funny-haired bear. But most people just call him Nate. And that suits him fine.
