Article on Nookipedia Lloid

Lloid (ハニワくん, Haniwa-kun) is a gyroid character first appearing in Animal Crossing: City Folk. Despite this, however, there was a Gyroid in Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ that looked exactly the same as Lloid, and even share the same Japanese name (haniwa kun).

Origin[edit]

Lloid in Animal Crossing: City Folk.

In Animal Crossing, Lloid acts as the player's personal assistant. In Animal Crossing (GCN) a similar-looking Gyroid can hold items for the player, trade items with other visitors, and save the game. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Lloid was in charge of the Auction House in The City, and in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, he is responsible for collecting donations for public works projects and renting the player tools to use in Dream Towns or on Tortimer Island.

However, Lloid has never been seen being a rocket, nor has any kind of Gyroid. However, seeing as how the player has to talk to the Gyroid in front of their house to save their game, it could be taken as a pun, as the rocket Lloid can be used as a recovery (quite literally saving the player).

In Smash 4[edit]

As a background character[edit]

Ntsc Just a normal girl living a normal life in a normal town—her special moves, however, are anything but. She can pocket items, projectiles, and even beams, and then pull them out at a moment's notice. Her down special lets her plant a tree, water it, and chop it down. If she leaves the tree standing, she can use the axe against foes.
Pal This girl's special moves are very special indeed. The standard one lets you pocket items, projectiles and even laser beams, then use them by pressing the button again. Her down special plants a tree, which you can water and finally chop down to hurt other fighters. Or you can leave the tree alone and attack with the axe. Up to you.
