― Rory, New Leaf

Rory (アーサー, Āsā?, Arthur) is a jock lion villager in New Leaf. His English name is a pun on the act of roaring. He appears on the album cover for K.K. Rally. He has the music hobby.


Rory is a light orange lion with a dark orange mane and mustache. He has white in his ears and on the tip of his hands and feet. The insides of his ears are a light teal. His appearance may be based off of a Shiisaa, the guardian lionlike beings of Okinawa. When it rains he will initially carry the Paper Parasol, contributing to his Okinawan theme. He also listens to K.K. Faire, also known as Haisai K.K., which is based off of Ryukuan folk music. Furthermore, his catchphrase in Japanese is "ナハッ" (Naha) which refers to Naha, the capital of Okinawa prefecture.


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

Rory 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, Rory 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 Rory.


In New Leaf, Rory has K.K. Faire playing on his Turntable and many pieces of the Exotic and Cabana series in his house. He uses the Sea view as wallpaper and the Ship deck as flooring.

In New Horizons, his house seems to be themed after a public beach or park. He has the Mangrove Wall and Starry-sands flooring, and his furniture consists of items like a Poolside bed, Beach towel, Portable toilet, and Beach ball. He has the Shell table and speaker, both items from the Shell furniture series. He also has a yellow Plastic pool flanked by two Stone lion-dog statues, which reflect his appearance as one.
