Butch (ジョン, John) is a cranky, dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name reflects on the cartoon name given to dogs, usually meaning muscular in appearance. His rottweiler appearance may also relate to this, as they too appear masculine and muscular. Some people mistake him for a german shepard, but he is in fact a rottweiler. His initial phrase, "ROOOOOWF", is a slight adjustment on the spelling "woof" and "ruff". He is also the only dog with a cranky personality.


Butch is a caramel orange-brown and chocolate ebony dog with creamy white and dark brown tipped paws, possibly being a Rottweiler or Doberman. His eyebrows always show a frown. He has a great, dark dog nose with a corkscrew smile and his eyes look very serious. His dark brown, floppy dog ears slightly transition into a caramel color at the tip. His tail is also dark chocolate and his arms and legs are the same color as his head. He wears an Arctic Camo that is a very snowy, light blue with slightly darker blue, large spots splashed around on top of it.


Below is a breif description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.

As a cranky villager, Butch will appear more adult and mature compared to other male villager types. He will get along with other cranky villagers and snooty villagers and sometimes other types of villager too, whom will share the same interests. He will sometimes find it hard to get along with peppy villagers, and will tell the player indirectly about planting gossip on peppy villagers. He will indulge in the usual hobbies, usually for spiritual reasons such as relaxing and tranquility.

Butch can only seem mean when you first meet him. He will immediately start warming up and taken an interest in the player and seem a very good friend. It is easier to obtain Butch's picture than other cranky villagers. Butch stays in your village for quite a while allowing long friendship with him. When Butch is packing up, he will always say nice things and often after you say goodbye he will say "say goodbye to <another player's name> for me." If you however do not want him to leave, it is quite easy to change his mind. It can be upsetting when he leaves. He is quite similar to other kind cranky villagers like Kabuki, Chief, Lobo and Static.


His house has the modern theme, including the violin and dart board. Butch has one gyroid in his house, the nebuloid. He usually does not want to part with his stuff at the Flea Market. He usually has the song K.K. Fusion on. He also has a steel flooring.
