Keep it real. Yeah.
― Picture quote, Wild World


Pudge (きんぞう, Kinzō?) is a lazy cub villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all of the games in the series to date. His name derives from an informal term for body fat, either referring to his lazy personality and thus love of food or the tendency for bears to have thick layers of fat. His initial phrase, "pudgy," may also relate to this. Pudge's Italian name "Tombolo" means "podge," as in a short chubby person; also, his Spanish name means "little bread roll" or "little cupcake." He appears on the album cover for The K. Funk. He has the play hobby.

Appearance

Pudge in Animal Crossing

Pudge is an orange cub (also known as "teddy bear") with brown hair, green ears, and a white muzzle. He has a look of confusion, nervousness, shyness, concern, or perhaps dizziness on his face. He initially wears a green ring shirt in Animal Crossing and Wild World, and a chichi print in City Folk and New Leaf.

Personality

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

As a lazy villager, Pudge 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. Pudge 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.

House

In Animal Crossing, Pudge listens to Rockin' K.K. in his house. He has a wide variety of furniture in his house, ranging from a jackhammer to the elephant slide.

In City Folk, he has an Arwing (statue), hospital bed, red boom box, a tall sputnoid, barber's pole, mochi pestle, executive toy, ornate wallpaper, and green rug. He still listens to Rockin' K.K.

In New Leaf, he continues to enjoy Rockin' K.K., but changes his furniture to a citrus carpet, wallpaper featuring tugboats, toy train set, magazine shelf, potted palm tree, froggy chair, an indistinguishable tan bug in a blue container atop a froggy table, blue slide, dice boom box, hammock, and displays his red with white polka-dot shirt. He has a cuckoo clock perched between the froggy chair and palm tree. He keeps his tall sputnoid.

Pocket Camp

Pudge was added to Pocket Camp in the May 10, 2022 update.

Pudge's preferred theme is hip, and he primarily gives steel as a reward. His profile reads:

❝ Pudge often looks troubled, but that's just because of his eyebrows. Probably. It's hard to make the distinction. Maybe just ask him if you're not sure.❞

Profile As a fish crazy bear and a dedicated daydreamer, Pudge is always staring at the fish-filled waters so intensely that one small nudge would push him in the drink. Maybe that he'd actually catch a fish. He's a terrible fisherman.
