Buck is a jock horse villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name may come from the term buck, referring to a movement performed by animals, namely horses, where they lower their head and kick out their hind legs. This is further implied by his e-Reader card profile.

In New Horizons, Buck has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Buck from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Buck is an olive green horse with a light brown mane and tail. His muzzle and hooves are white and the insides of his ears are orange.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Buck 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, Buck goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
