Some say my house smells like a wooly mammoth in a sweat lodge, toady.
― Ribbot, City Folk

Ribbot (ガチャ, Gacha?) is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name is a portmanteau of the sound made by frogs, "ribbit", and the name of the human-like machine, a robot. His Japanese name comes from the onomatopoeia for metal rattling, "gacha gacha". He is among the few villagers in the game who are not technically animals, along with Sprocket, Del, Coco, Stitches, Cephalobot, and others.

He has the fitness hobby.


Ribbot in Animal Crossing

Much like Sprocket and Cephalobot, Ribbot is made of metal plates that have been bolted together. His mouth looks like a storage chute which opens outwards. He has yellow lights that resemble eyes, which, when he is talking, have pupils appear inside them. He also has the number "59" written in white on the back of his head, which relates to how mass produced products in real life tend to be given numbers. There is a blue and red stripe of the front of his head, located between his eyes.

He initially wears a Pulse Shirt in Animal Forest, Wild World, and City Folk, a Lightning Tee in New Leaf, and a Simple Parka in New Horizons.

Like all other frogs, Ribbot does not carry an umbrella when it rains.

In New Horizons, his body has a metallic texture, reflecting light, and occasionally makes mechanical sounds when moving. This is the same as the other robotic villagers, Del and Sprocket.


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

Ribbot has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Ribbot is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Ribbot.


His house is like Octavian's. He has many items from the Space Theme. In City Folk, he has the Lunar Lander, Lunar Rider, two Spaceman Sams, two Asteroids, flying saucer, space shuttle, satellite, and a Tall Quazoid in his house. He also has the lunar horizon wallpaper and lunar surface flooring, available from Saharah.

In New Leaf, his house stops having a Space Theme, now having a robotic or industrial approach. Ribbot possesses some pieces from the Sleek Series including the bed, table, sofa, lamp and closet and also some furniture from the Mad Scientist Theme. He retains the Tall Quazoid.

In New Horizons, his house continues his industrial theme in the previous game and uses the Circuit-board wall and Future-tech flooring. He has the ironwood bed, iron shelf, iron closet, and iron work table. He has a ironwood worktable that he uses whilst crafting. His stereo plays K.K. Technopop.
