“If there's anything I can do to repay your devotion... Hey! Idiot! I'm being sarcastic, you know!”
— Boris, Animal Forest
Boris (ダリー,Darī?, Daley) is a crankypigvillager. His name presumably comes from the word "boar," an animal similar to a pig, usually wild. His initial phrase, "schnort," is pronounced similarly to "snort," a noise pigs and boars make.
Boris returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome Amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.
Boris is a blue pig with a large pink snout and slanted eyes. His teeth suggest that he has an underbite. Because his eyes are half-closed and slanted, he looks as though he is angry, yet he is smiling. His initial clothing is a Kafei's Shirt. In Animal Forest, his eyes make him look like a lazy villager. His eyelids are yellow in Animal Forest, but change to a light blue in later games. He has yellow inner ears, red in Animal Forest, and light blue hooves, pink in Animal Forest.
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 and are more difficult to befriend than other villager types. 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, Boris 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. Boris will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.
Boris' house has no specific theme, so it can be be considered an ordinary household containing a Wide-Screen TV, computer, writing desk and chair, and a pothos. He also owns two gyroids along with a bug and a fish. A train set, globe and Red Checked shirt are also found in his house.
