― T-Bone, New Horizons

T-Bone (ボルシチ, Borushichi?, Borscht) is a cranky (formerly lazy) bull villager from the Animal Crossing series. He is named after the cut of beef, t-bones. His Japanese name is the name of a Ukrainian dish, borscht, which sometimes uses beef or beef bone as stock. His catchphrase, moocher, is a pun, as a moocher is someone who asks by begging, while mooing is a bovine's call. He appears on the album covers for To the Edge and K.K. Country.

He has the education hobby.


T-Bone in Animal Crossing

T-Bone is a bluish gray bull with yellow horns, somewhat resembling a water buffalo. He has a dark grey-blue marking around his muzzle. He has brownish hair on his head. The inside of his ears are pink, his horns yellow, and he also has white tips on the ends of his hooves. He initially wears the Yellow Pinstripe in Animal Crossing and the Hanten Shirt in New Leaf.


T-Bone's personality changes from a lazy villager in Animal Crossing to a cranky villager in New Leaf.

In Animal Crossing

T-Bone is a lazy villager in Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+. Because he is a lazy villager, that means that he is extremely laid-back, and a food lover. He will get along with normal and peppy villagers, but he will not get along with jock villagers due to their conflicting lifestyle. He will also not get along with snooty villagers due to the fact that he does not care about his appearance. Cranky villagers will admire his laid-back lifestyle.

New Leaf and later

In New Leaf, T-Bone is a cranky villager. That means he will be mean and rude to the player at first but as the player becomes friends with him, he will warm up. He will admire lazy villagers laid-back lifestyle, and will get along with snooty villagers (cranky villagers' female counterparts), due to similar rude personalities.


In Animal Crossing, T-Bone's house is filled with plants. He owns many different types of greenery, as well as an Exotic Bench, a globe and a Phonograph that plays K.K. Reggae. His wallpaper is the Bamboo Wall, and he uses the Bamboo Floor as his flooring.

In New Leaf, T-Bone's house has an outdated Russian theme. He owns a matryoshka, a stew pot and a lunch tray. He also has the Classic Bed and the Classic Sofa, as well as a theremin and a Phonograph that plays K.K. Steppe. His flooring is the Plush Carpet and his wallpaper is the Arched Window.
