Punchy (ビンタ, Binta) is a cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all games to date, except for Animal Forest. He has a lazy personality. His name may come from the word "punchy," which means being groggy or dazed from a series of punches. His Japanese name, 'Binta', means "a slap in the face". His catchphrase is the sound of shrugging combined with sighing, which relates to his lazy personality. His picture quote from Animal Crossing: Wild World also relates to his easygoing demeanor. Punchy was featured on the cover of Animal Crossing, in the upper right window with Mitzi, another cat villager.
Punchy is a black and white cat with sleepy, yellow, purple-lidded eyes. His legs are black with white paws, as if he were wearing mittens. He has a set of whiskers on his cheeks, as well as a cat-like smile indicating his friendly, easygoing personality. Punchy has three initial shirts, The GC Shirt (Dōbutsu no Mori +), the Cherry Shirt (Animal Crossing and Dōbutsu no Mori e+), and the Gray Tartan Shirt (Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk).
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Punchy will be easygoing and easy to befriend. Like all lazy villagers, he shares a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, such as fishing or bug catching, to relax or for food. He will usually get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers because of their conflicting lifestyles. He will ask the player for Fossils to add as decoration in his house.
In all games, Punchy's house has a laid-back theme. In Animal Crossing, he has a Gold Stereo, Mama Bear, Speed Bag and various items of the Blue Series. He has the Blue Carpet and Mod Wall. He will replace all of his normal furniture with fish, insects, and fossils if you give him enough, so don't enable him.
In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Punchy no longer has the Gold Stereo but still retains his Blue Series theme, although with less Blue items present and replaced with fruit items. The wallpaper and flooring are the same as they were in the previous games. K.K. Love Song plays in Punchy's house.
