Spike (スクワット, Squat?) is a cranky rhino villager in the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase may be a reference to his intimidating species. He first appeared only in the early games of the series, but has since found in the data for Happy Home Designer. His birthday is the same as Tangy's.

Spike returned to the series in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, as part of the Welcome Amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.


Spike is an orange rhino with angry-appearing eyes, and a scarred muzzle on each side with two yellow horns on top. The same yellow coloring of his horns is also at the tips of his ears, as well as around his wrists and ankles. Around each of his two horns is a steel blue colored ring, which also appears at the tip of tail, and at the end of all four of his limbs. His dark brown hair is coarse and styled like a mohawk. He is modeled after the "punk" and "skater" / skate-boarding culture, of which his catchphrase "punk" comes from. His name, Spike, is perhaps inspired by the spikes that frequently adorned late 20th-Century punk and skater fashion accessories. In all his appearances, Spike has worn the Skull shirt.

Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood, and are more difficult to befriend than other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Spike will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Spike will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.


In earlier Animal Crossing titles, Spike's house consists of the Construction Theme. If he has a stereo it will play Surfin' K.K.

In New Leaf, Spike's home has items consistent with "extreme sports" such as a Skateboard Rack and a Mountain Bike. He also owns a Hanger Rack customized with male clothing apparel, a Desktop TV sitting atop a Square Minitable, a Brown Seat, Shower Stall, Succulent Plant, Modern Bed, Pitcher Plant, and a Jukebox that plays K.K. House.
