Walker (ベン,Ben?) is a lazydogvillager in the Animal Crossing series. His name relates to walks, or walking, which dogs are known to enjoy. His initial phrase, "wuh", which is a dazed expression, relates to his personality type, as well as the sound a dog makes while barking. It may also be worth mentioning that Walker's name, along with his lazy personality might be a reference to sleep walking. It may also be a reference to the Treeing Walker Coonhound, a breed of dog. Walker first appeared in Animal Forest e+, and was only available via his e-Card which came bundled with the game. He has appeared in every game since.
He is featured on the cover of Mr. K.K. and he has the play hobby.
Walker is a black and white dog with blue eyes, a black nose, and a large mouth. He has white-tipped paws and an entirely white face and stomach. His appearance seems to be based on a Border Collie or a Husky. He initially wears the Number 67 Shirt. When it rains, he will initially carry the Yellow Umbrella.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Walker 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. Walker 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.
Some have speculated that Lucky is an undead version of Walker, as the color of their ears and tails are the same, they both have the lazy-type personality, and the difference of the numbers on their default shirts is 44, a number foreboding death in some east Asian superstitions.
