Bam (タケル, Takeru) is a deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. He is a new character only seen in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and was one of the first villagers announced for the release of the game. His name is likely a reference to the famous deer, Bambi.



Bam is a blue deer with antlers, brown eyes, and black paws. He has yellow insides of his ears and initially wears the Green Warmup Suit.


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.
