Porter is a brown monkey with a pale yellow face, hands, and feet. He wears a blue station porter uniform, which consists of a jacket with gold buttons on it. He also wears a hat with a badge in the front center.
It was theorized that Porter is Champ, as neither one co-existed in the same game, but no official evidence suggests this is true. This though has been proven false as Champ and Porter's birthdays are on different dates.
In Wild World, lazy villagers will mention Porter in some conversations with the player. They will state that they had a Train Station in their village while growing up, and the "coolest monkey worked there".
Despite being stuck at the station rain or shine, Porter always seems to be in a chipper mood. Rumor has it that his brother, the train's engineer, switch places sometimes!
