“How do I look? Do I look dashing? I've always wanted to look dashing!”
― Spork, New Horizons
Spork (ポーク,Pōku?, Pork), known as Crackle in PAL regions, is a lazypigvillager from the Animal Crossing series. He was absent from Wild World, but reappeared in City Folk. His USA name is a play on the word "pork," the word for meat from a pig (and also his Japanese name), and spork, a portmanteau of spoon and fork. His PAL name, refers to "crackling," a by-product of a pig. His initial phrase, "snork," is a combination of his name and the name given to the noise pigs make, "snort." He may also just be named after the utensil, the spork.
Spork is a brown pig with beady eyes and a snort line through them resembling an over-lying forehead. He has brown hair in a simple, jagged, short haircut and green inner ears. His hooves are a lighter color than the rest of his body. He initially wears the Jade Check Print shirt. His appearance may have been based on the character from Hayao Miyazaki's Porco Rosso, an anime film about an anthropomorphic pig pilot in World War 1.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Spork 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. Spork 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.
In New Horizons, Spork adopts a new woodland theme for his home. Like many natural-themed villager homes, Pork's house is fitted with many DIY furniture pieces, such as the red brick oven, firewood, log stool, simple DIY workbench, log round table, old-fashioned washtub, and mossy pond stone. Atop the center log round table are a white portable radio and green picnic basket. In the lower left corner are a gold lantern and green sleeping bag. Spork's wallpaper is the Woodland Wall, and his flooring is the Dirt Flooring.
