Turn the other cheek.
― Picture quote, Wild World
Punchy (ビンタ, Binta?) is a lazy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all games to date, except for Animal Forest. He and Cheri are the only non-islander villagers to make their debut in Animal Forest+, rather than the original Animal Forest for the Nintendo 64. His name may come from the word "punchy," which means being groggy or dazed from a series of punches. His Japanese name, 'Binta', means "a slap in the face". His picture quote from Wild World also relates to his easygoing demeanor. Punchy was featured on the cover of Animal Crossing, in the upper right window with Mitzi, another cat villager.


Punchy is a black and white cat with sleepy, yellow, purple-lidded eyes. His legs are black with white paws, as if he were wearing mittens. He has a set of whiskers on his cheeks, as well as a cat-like smile indicating his friendly, easygoing personality. Punchy has three different initial shirts, The GC Shirt (Animal Forest+), the Cherry Shirt (Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+), and the Gray Tartan Shirt (Wild World onwards).


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Punchy 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. Punchy 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 uchi villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.


In Animal Crossing, Punchy has a Gold Stereo, Mama Bear, Speed Bag and various items of the Blue Series. He has the Blue Carpet and Mod Wall.

In City Folk, Punchy no longer has the Gold Stereo but still retains his Blue Series theme, although with less Blue items present and replaced with fruit items. The wallpaper and flooring are the same as they were in the previous games. K.K. Love Song plays in Punchy's house.
