Bruce is a cranky deer villager in the Animal Crossing series who debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The name "Bruce" may be derived from "bruise," a type of injury, which may reference the "tough" nature of cranky villagers. His name could also be a reference to the original Norwegian name of the goats in The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Bruse. His catchphrase is also likely a reference to Three Billy Goats Gruff, "Gruff" being the name of another cranky villager.

In New Horizons, Bruce 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.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Bruce in New Leaf.

Bruce is a blue deer with dark blue highlights around his eyes, ears, arms, and legs. He has two stripes of dark blue in between his antlers, which are striped cream and brown. The inside of his ears are orange, and he has dark blue hooves.

Personality[edit]

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

Bruce is a cranky villager, meaning he is mature, bitter and adult-like. He appears somewhat rude at first, but is very reliable and friendlier when befriended. He gets along well with most snooty and lazy villagers and other cranky neighbors, but will sometimes offend smug and peppy villagers unintentionally, as he does not clearly understand their lifestyle. Bruce has a harsh sense of humor, but is very hospitable and kinder once the player enters his home.
