Lopez loves parting wisdom around the island. Players can often catch him being a mentor to other Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers. If he’s not out and about spreading his wise words, he usually has a calm and cool attitude. He kicks back his legs and relaxes on his couch.

The smug deer could always be found saying his favorite catchphrase, “badoom“. He celebrates his birthday on August 20, which isn’t really far away, so make sure to wish him if he lives on your island. Lopez likes to live in a modern house, and it mainly consists of a large kitchen given the deer’s love for food.

One of the biggest reasons why we love the smug deer is because he offers an interesting range of winter clothes as gifts. He is a shrewd but assertive and polished character who is a nice presence to have around one’s island.
