Animal Crossing Bob Amiibo Card New Horizons
Bob (ニコバン, Nikoban?) is a lazy cat villager who has appeared in every game of the Animal Crossing series. His name is most likely based on the bobcat. His initial phrase, “pthhhpth,” may be a reference to the sound a cat makes when coughing up a hairball (this is further supported by the information on the e-Reader card which indicates he tends to spit often while speaking). His picture phrase in New Leaf is a feline spin on the memetic phrase, “You only live once.” He has a play hobby.
Bob was long speculated to be the first villager designed due to appearing in every game, his simplicity, name, January 1st birthday, and having the first villager e-Card and amiibo card. This was later confirmed in a conference by series director Hisashi Nogami.
Animal Crossing Bob Appearance
Bob is a lavender cat with darker purple spots all over his body and face. His eyes are half-closed, making him appear sleepy and reflecting his lazy personality. He initially wears the Blossom Tee. The inside of his ears are various shades of pink, and his tail has two darker purple spots on it. Bob carries the Gelato Umbrella when it rains.
