"Thank you very much."
— Picture quote, Wild World
Elvis (キング,,Kingu?) is a crankylionvillager from the Animal Crossing series. His catchphrase ("unh-hunh") and picture quote ("thank you very much"), as well as his overall appearance are references to Elvis Presley, the famous singer. Elvis Presley was known as "The King" - a reference that lends itself to the lion, which is known in popular culture as "the king of the jungle." His quote from New Leaf is possibly a reference to the Cowardly Lion, a character in The Wizard of Oz.
Elvis has a brown mane and a yellowish-gold body. His inner ears are a bright red, and his paws are all brown. He has prominent cheekbones and an X-shaped scar on the right side of his face. His initial shirt is the Royal Shirt.
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, Elvis 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. Elvis will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.
In Wild World, he starts off with two exotic screens, two stone pillars, two regal sofas, two thrones and a treasure chest. He also has the arched window on his walls and stone flooring. If given a stereo, it will play K.K. Casbah. He has no Gyroids.
In New Leaf, he starts off with two stone pillars, two thrones, two Rococo Series sofas, two Gorgeous Series dressers, a plate armor, and a pot of red roses. He will have a stereo in the form of a phonograph, which will play K.K. Casbah. He will notably have a harpsichord, as well, which he will occasionally bring up in conversation, saying that he plays it because he is "obsessed" with it.
