Spike Gallery

Spike (スクワット, Sukuwatto?, Squat) is a cranky rhino villager in the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase may be a reference to his intimidating species. His name is perhaps inspired by the spikes that frequently adorned late 20th-Century punk and skater fashion accessories. He first appeared only in the early games of the series, but has since found in the data for Happy Home Designer. His birthday is the same as Tangy's. He has the nature hobby.

Spike returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.

Spike in Animal Crossing

Spike is an orange rhino with angry-appearing eyes, and a scarred muzzle on each side with two yellow horns on top. In New Horizons, his horns have a golden sheen to them rather than the previous matte yellow. The same yellow coloring of his horns is also at the tips of his ears, as well as around his wrists and ankles. Around each of his two horns is a steel blue colored ring, which also appears at the tip of tail, and at the end of all four of his limbs. His dark brown hair is coarse and styled like a Mohawk. In all his appearances, Spike has worn the Skull Tee, besides for New Horizons, where he wears the GOLD Tee.


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than most other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Spike will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Spike will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


In earlier Animal Crossing titles, Spike's house consists of the Construction Theme. If he has a stereo it will play Surfin' K.K.

In New Leaf, Spike's home has items consistent with "extreme sports" such as a Skateboard Rack and a Mountain Bike. He also owns a Hanger Rack customized with male clothing apparel, a Desktop TV sitting atop a Square Minitable, a Brown Seat, Shower Stall, Succulent Plant, Modern Bed, Pitcher Plant, and a Jukebox that plays K.K. House.

Pocket Camp

Spike's preferred theme is sporty. His profile says:

Sure, he looks a little intimidating and sounds like a tough-as-nails ex-cop in an action movie, but Spike's really a sweet guy.

Profile Spike is the scariest looking dude around. His mean scowl, huge scar, and sharp tongue scare off even the toughest streetwise city kid, but he's actually as cuddly as a teddy bear once you get to know him.
