― Rollo, Animal Crossing

Rollo (ヒポクラテス, Hipokuratesu?, Hippocrates) is a lazy hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name is possibly a reference to Rollo of Normandy. His Japanese name, Hippocrates, is a pun on the word "hippo" and the name of the Greek physician, Hippocrates.

Rollo is a bluish-gray hippopotamus with orange eyelids and tipped hooves. He has flaring nostrils (as most of the hippos do), and the insides of his mouth and ears are deep pink. He initially wears a Whirly Shirt.


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

As a lazy villager, Rollo 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. Rollo 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.


Rollo's house has an Asian theme to it with two gyroids. If he gains a stereo, it will play K.K. March, which clashes with the theme.

Profile Rollo the hippo isn't known for his manners. Sweet as he is, this big oaf chews with his mouth open and spits half his food in the process! It's best to play safe with him after mealtimes.

  • Rollo is the only lazy hippo in the series so far.
  • The saying on the back of his Japanese e-card is "逆立ちしてもバカにはならない" (Sakadachi shitemo baka ni wa naranai?), which roughly means, "You're not stupid if you can do a handstand".
