Bam is a deer villager in the Animal Crossing series, and is currently the only jock deer. He debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and was one of the first villagers announced to appear in the game. His name is likely a reference to Bambi, a fictional deer popularized by the Disney animated film based on Bambi, a Life in the Woods by Felix Salten.

Bam is a blue deer. He has lighter blue muzzle and rings around his eyes, orange irises with brown pupils, dark grey freckles, and brown antlers and brown hooves. The insides of his ears are yellow.


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

As a jock villager, Bam is obsessed with physical fitness and sports, and rarely becomes angered. His interests are unknown as most other jock villagers in the game. He acts brotherly to the player, supporting them and competing with them constantly. When he asks the player for a favor, he often calls it a trial of physical fitness or a workout. Unlike most other jock villagers, however, he does not seem to be dimwitted. He does not get along well with lazy villagers because of their contrasting lifestyles.
