"By the way, where was your house at, again? It's amazing how little I remember, hopalong."
— Claude, Animal Crossing
Claude (ビネガー,,Vinegar?) is a lazyrabbitvillager from the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase, "hopalong," relates to the nature of rabbits to hop. He only appeared in the early games of the series, but he returned in Happy Home Designer as DLC and has store items with designs of Nintendo consoles as his furniture theme.
Claude 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.
Claude is a brown rabbit with lazy eyes and a unibrow. His inner ears are light blue. His initial clothing is the dark polka shirt, a dark brown shirt (which matches his fur) with colorful polka dots.
