― Otis, Animal Crossing

Otis (たくあん, Takuan?) is a lazy bird villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name, Otis, may have something to do with bird-feed, usually composed of seeds or oats.

Otis in Animal Forest

Otis is a pale purple bird, whose forehead is black with two white spots, resembling two large, bushy, and circular eyebrows. His chin is orange, like a robin's. When he first moves to your town, he will wear the moldy shirt, a shirt designed by Gracie. His initial clothing could possibly be an emphasis on the fact he is a lazy villager, therefore making Otis seem as though he's sloppy.


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

As a lazy villager, Otis 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. Otis 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.


Otis' house has a mossy backyard theme or feel towards it. There are also five gyroids. There is no stereo, but if he obtains one, K.K. Lullaby is played.

Profile The distinctive patch of orange plumage on Otis's chin makes it look like he has a beard, but don't mention it to him. See, Otis has been going gray for quite some time, and he's kind of touchy about it.
