"Now, the great thing about pinwheels is that the faster you run, the faster they spin! Give it a try!"
— Phineas, City Folk
Phineas (パロンチーノ, Palochino?) is a sea lion who was first introduced in City Folk. He can be found in the city at anytime of the day in reasonable weather conditions (sunny or overcast/cloudy). He gives the player special hand-held items that the player cannot get anywhere else except wi-fi gameplay, for no purpose other than for joy and for free. He has been known to appear in a player's city for days in a row, or not at all for weeks.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Phineas is now a scout master, and will appear in the player's town if they have fulfilled the criteria for one or more badges, which he will hand out when asked. Sometimes when you talk to him again, he gives you another badge when accomplished an achievement.

As it says in the City Folk game guide, this is Phineas's description:

Hitch a ride to the city on sunny days for a chance to meet Phineas out in the plaza. This happy-go-lucky character lives to spread cheer and will give you a balloon, pinwheel, or bubble wand for just talking to him. Limit one goodie per visit!

Gifts

PhineasCF
He gives out a variety of film gifts:

The player can only receive one gift per day. The balloons, bunny balloons, and pinwheels come in a variety of colors, such as orange, blue, green, red, pink, yellow, and purple. Balloons will fly away if the player trips and falls or if player gets stung by a bee.

Badges

Main article: Badges

In New Leaf, Phineas wanders the town on days with clear weather when he has badges to give the player for meeting certain goals. When he is spoken to he may tell the player a little bit about their milestone(s) in the game and award the appropriate badge. Multiple badges can be received from Phineas on a single visit, and there are 24 badge types in total.

There are three ranks for each achievement. The first rank is bronze, the second is silver, and the final rank is a golden, colored version of the badge.

Trivia

  • In City Folk, some cranky villagers believe Phineas is K.K. Slider's day job.
  • In City Folk, if the player brings a pinwheel into the Town Hall, occasionally when Phyllis is working, it will disappear from the player's pockets and Phyllis will be using it in the back of the room.
  • In City Folk, as the player gets closer to Phineas's cart, the music in the background will start to sound cheerier; inversely, the music will also return to normal as the player moves away from him.
  • If a player Time Travels, Phineas may not appear for a while.
  • Phineas's appearance and scout uniform in New Leaf may be a reference to Theodore Roosevelt, an avid Boy Scout enthusiast and former US president with whom he shares a similar appearance.
  • In New Leaf, Phineas has the deepest voice of all the characters.
