“I ain't your buddy, and I got no idea what you're blatherin' about.”
― T-Bone, New Horizons
T-Bone (ボルシチ,Borushichi?, Borscht) is a cranky (formerly lazy) bullvillager 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.
T-Bone is a bluish gray bull with yellow horns, somewhat resembling a cape 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.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, T-Bone 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. T-Bone 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.

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. 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, T-Bone 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.
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.
