Ribbot (ガチャ, Gacha in Japanese, Ranobot in Spanish) 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, Lucky, Peaches, Coco, Nindori, Cube, Blanca, and Stitches.
Because Ribbot is a robotic frog, he 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.
He looks misplaced amongst all the other animals, as he is a robot, whereas they are all anthropomorphic animals.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.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. He has no stereo, but upon gaining one, he will have Go K.K. Rider! playing on it.
