Samson is a jock, mouse villager from the Animal Crossing series, who has appeared in all of the games so far, with the exception of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His catchphrase, "pipsqueak", is based on the sound made by mice and the term "pipsqueak", which means "little". His Japanese catchphrase, "chū", is based on the Japanese onomatopoeia for a mouse's squeaking, "chūchū" (ちゅうちゅう). His favorite saying in Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a pun on Theodore Roosevelt's famous quote "Speak softly and carry a big stick.", meaning to always be wary of your neighbors.
Samson is a smoky gray mouse who portrays the look of Dora and Chico. The only differences being his color and the shape of his mouth; Dora's mouth is a half-smile, while Samson's is full. He has pink in the inside of his ears and a black nose, along with black stripes on his tail. If Samson is in a good mood, he will consistently display a large, toothy grin while he talks, similar to Chico; Only when Samson is angry or depressed will he move his mouth normally. His initial clothing is an Airy Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Samson has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.
His house does not have any particular theme, but he possesses a Dice Stereo and Kiddie Floor. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Samson has redone his house. He no longer possesses a Dice Stereo, but a White Boom Box instead. Also, in each game in the series, he always has two Melon Chairs, a red one and a yellow one.
