Pudge (きんぞう,Kinzō?) is a lazycubvillager 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 playhobby.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
