You gotta play through the pain!
― Picture quote, Wild World

Teddy (たいへいた, Taiheita?) is a jock bear villager who has appeared in every game in the Animal Crossing series. His name refers to his species, as well as the stuffed toy called a teddy bear. His catchphrase, "grooof," refers to growling, a sound made by various animals including bears.

He appears on the album covers for Mr. K.K., which is also his favourite song, he also appears on the cover of Neapolitan. He has the fitness hobby.


Teddy in Animal Crossing

Teddy is a chestnut-colored bear with a cream-colored muzzle that has markings on it resembling a goatee. His cheeks have a lighter colored spot. Teddy has thick eyebrows and his eyes are usually closed, which creates a relaxed facade, although this conflicts with his jock personality. His appearance is based on a traditional teddy bear. His initial clothing is the Club Tee.


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

Teddy 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, Teddy 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 Teddy.


Teddy's house is surprisingly upper-class, and it somewhat resembles the interior of a dollhouse. It has maintained a similar theme in all versions of the game. He has Mr. K.K. playing on his retro stereo by default, and uses the plush carpet and chic wall in all game appearances.

In Animal Crossing, he has a fireplace, a piano, a stool, a retro television, writing chair and desk, and a mama bear.

In New Leaf, his house now includes a dracaena, as well as a globe, gold certificate, golf bag, pink velvet stool, and a large bookshelf. Mr. K.K. plays on his Retro Stereo.

Teddy's preferred theme is natural. His profile says:

Wholly uninterested in anything besides lifting weights, he has a relaxed attitude and believes that he'll be fine no matter what. But where does all of that confidence come from?

Profile Teddy is obsessed with his health and fitness. He truly believes that if everyone would just play sports, the world would be a peaceful place. That's probable because he's never met a sore loser before.
