Bones (トミ, Tommy) is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game to date. His name probably originated from the fact that dogs famously love to chew bones. His catchphrase is from the noise dogs make. His quote on the back of his picture is hinting towards his lazy personality, as lazy villagers often love to eat.
Bones is a black and white dog with a single brown spot. His whole body is white with dark tips on his paws and ears. He has a black nose and a curly smile somewhat like a real dog. Bones initially wears the caveman tunic.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Bones will be easy to get along with due to his laid back personality. Like all lazy villagers, he shares an interest in food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxation or for food (fishing). He will get along well with other villager types such as the normal and peppy villagers. He may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, who do not understand the reason behind the lazy lifestyle.
Bones' house has a few items from the Kiddie Series, such as the Kiddie wall which matches his Green Floor. He also has one gyroids, a computer, a writing desk, and an office chair. Bones has no stereo in his house initially, but once he obtains a one, it will play K.K. Ragtime.
