One such character is the lazy bear cub known as Stitches. He is an adorable villager and a favorite of many players. His name is appropriate as he is made up of patches of various colors and resembles a worn-out and repaired stuffed toy.

From the looks of it, it seems Stitches is aware that he is a stuffed toy meant for children. Even the interior of his home looks like it is meant for a child, with kiddie furniture and colorful wallpaper.

His catchphrases are also references to the art of making stuffed toys. It hints at the fact that he is not really an animal, like Ribbot the robot frog, and Coco, the rabbit made of coconuts.

Being a lazy villager, this "Teddy bear" is quite friendly and easy to get along with. In general, lazy villagers get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, occasionally with cranky villagers. However, lazy villagers often end up confusing and enraging Jock villagers and snooty villagers in Animal Crossing due to the stark differences in their lifestyle.

As their name suggests, lazy villagers in Animal Crossing are known for their laid-back and relaxed lifestyle, along with their passion for food. This makes them good friends to hang out with, usually for relaxing activities and activities involving food, like fishing.
