"Sooo.. Anyway.. What can I do for you, chaps?"Rodeo (ロデオ, Rodeo?) is a lazy bull villager who made his first appearance in Wild World. As a lazy villager, he will appear hospitable and friendly towards the player, making it easy to befriend him. He also has a fascination with food and relaxing.
— Rodeo, Wild World
His name, Rodeo, comes from the name of the sport, or bull riding at rodeos. It is an event usually taking place in America, where the rider aims to stay on the bull the longest while it is jumping, kicking, and running.
His initial phrase, "chaps", also relates to this. Chaps are an item of clothing, typically worn over jeans and made out out of leather, which protect a rider from their trousers rubbing against them, otherwise causing irritation. His Animal Crossing: New Leaf quote is a reference to how lazy villagers love sleeping.
Rodeo is a dark gray bull with pale gray hair, dull, dusky gold horns and small, round red eyes. He has a lighter gray muzzle than the rest of his body. His tail tip goes from white to gray. On rainy days, he carries a Blue Dot parasol. Rodeo's initial shirt is the Beatnik Shirt. He bears an uncanny resemblance to Stu and T-Bone, which also have the lazy personality in some games. He also looks like Roscoe, a cranky horse. He can also easily be mistaken for a cranky villager himself, due to his intimidating appearance and red eyes.
The following is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Rodeo refers to food most of the time and is extremely easy to get along with. He occasionally, like other lazy villagers, refers to himself as "Fashion Lad", this may have something to do with their fascination of superheroes. He tends not to over-react like other personality types would, and tends to keep to his lazy or "laid-back" personality. He enjoys all the hobbies, such as fishing, bug catching, and fossil collecting, and is rarely discouraged from attending the Fishing Tourney or Bug Off competition. He is competitive in the competitions and when winning can try to give the player 'advice'.
In games prior to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Rodeo has two gyroids in his house and K.K. Gumbo plays on his Gold Stereo. Mostly his house carries a blue theme, with several items including the Blue Bed and the Blue Table. Rodeo also has a Men's toilet.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, his house mostly contains furniture from the Modern Series, with several items including the: Modern Bed, Modern Table, Modern Sofa, Modern End Table, and Modern Shelf.
