Bruce is a cranky deer villager in the Animal Crossing series who debuted on Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His catchphrase is probably a reference to the fairy tale, "The Three Billy Goats Gruff", and is also the name of another cranky villager. The name "Bruce" may be derived from "bruise", a type of injury, which may reference the "tough" nature of cranky villagers. His name could also be a reference to the original Norwegian name of the goats in The Three Billy Goats Gruff, which is Bruse.



Bruce is blue with dark blue highlights around his eyes, his ears, arms and legs, as well as having two stripes of dark blue in between his antlers. His antlers are striped cream and brown. His ears appear to be orange, and he has midnight blue hooves.


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

Bruce is a cranky villager, meaning he is mature, bitter and adult-like. He appears somewhat rude at first, but is very reliable and friendlier when befriended. He gets along well with most snooty and lazy villagers and other cranky neighbors, but will sometimes offend smug and peppy villagers unintentionally, as he does not clearly understand their lifestyle. Bruce has a harsh sense of humor, but is very hospitable and kinder once the player enters his home.
