Biff (ガブリエル, Gabriel) is a jock hippo villager from the Animal Crossing series. The name "Biff" comes from the adjective "buff." Biff is a name often derived with bullying individuals or those obsessed with muscles, perhaps an allusion to his jock personality. Biff also means beef in Swedish. Biff made his first appearance in Animal Forest. The Spanish name, Pipo, may derive from the Spaniard clay containers as they both share a similitude to shape and dark coloring. Biff's departure from Animal Crossing was made apparent in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk but reintroduced with the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, marking a reappearance into the series.
Biff is a brown hippo, his cheeks and hooves are lighter in color. He has only two visible tusks showing, which is common for the hippo villagers. Biff's eyes make it seem as if he's concentrating on becoming stronger, faster which is appropriate for the jock personality. Biff wears a Jagged Shirt. At first glance, the player may think that he is a cranky villager, due to very angry looks.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Biff has a jock personality. He will be into weightlifting, sports and anything athletic. He will be competitive and friendly towards the player. He gets along with normal, peppy and other jock villagers, but may offend snooty and cranky villagers.
In Animal Crossing, Biff's house has a country theme, with various items from the Green Series located within his home as house decor. K.K. Blues is played on a Reel-to-Reel. In New Leaf, his house looks a bit like a basketball court in the city. He has a telephone booth, as well as a basketball hoop.
