Ribbot (ガチャ, Gacha) is a jock frog villager in Animal Crossing series. His name is a portmanteau of the sound made by frogs, "ribbit", and the name of the human-like machine, a "Robot." His Japanese name comes from the onomatopoeia for metal rattling, "gacha gacha". He is one of the few villagers in the game who are not technically animals, along with Sprocket, Blanca, and Stitches.
Ribbot is a robotic frog and is made entirely of metal. He has several lines on his face where the metal has been bolted together, and his mouth looks like a storage chute which opens outwards. He has headlights that resemble eyes, which, when he is talking, have pupils appear inside them. His initial shirt is the pulse shirt, which is a Gracie design and goes with his robotic appearance. He also has the number "59" written in white on the back of his head, which could hint that he is one of many robots of his kind to be made, which relates to how massproduced products in real life tend to be given numbers. There is a blue and red stripe of the front of his head, located between his eyes.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Ribbot has a jock personality, which means he will be interested in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep meaningful things. He will get along with the player, appearing friendly and competitive when talking to them. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers, by judging their fitness and physique.
His house is like Octavian's. He has many items from the Space Theme. In City Folk, he has the lunar lander, lunar rider, two spaceman Sams, two asteroids, flying saucer, space shuttle, satellite, and a tall quazoid in his house. He also has the lunar horizon wallpaper and lunar surface flooring, available from Saharah.
In New Leaf his house stops having a Space Theme and now have a robotic or industrial approach, Ribbot posses some pieces from the Sleek Series incluiding the bed, table, sofa, lamp and closet and also some furniture from the Mad Scientist Theme he retains the Tall Quazoid.
