Ace is a jock bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing, Doubutsu no Mori e+, and returns in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. His name's origin and catchphrase may come from the ace of spades, a symbol used in card games that is on his default shirt. He shares his catchphrase with Rod.

In New Horizons, Ace has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.



Ace is a blue bird with a cream color on the inside of his body. He has red spots on his cheeks, an orange and yellow beak, and eyes that are half-closed.


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

Ace 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.
