“Turn the other cheek.”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.
― Picture quote, Wild World
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.|
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.

Punchy's preferred theme is natural and he will primarily gift the player with wood when they fulfill his requests.
His profile says:
Punchy often appears out of nowhere with an inscrutable expression on his face. Good luck figuring him out.
