Bam is a jock deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and he was one of the first villagers announced to appear in the game. As of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, he is the only jock deer in the series.

In New Horizons, Bam has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Bam from New Leaf.

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

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Bam is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Bam goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
