Cousteau is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series who debuted in Doubutsu no Mori. Although, like most frogs, he was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World, he reappeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has been in every game since. In the English version of the franchise, many aspects of Cousteau are taken from France and French stereotypes; his name is French (possibly referencing Jacques Cousteau, a famous Frenchman who researched the ocean), and his initial phrase, "oui oui," is French for "yes yes."

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


Cousteau in Animal Crossing.


Cousteau is a yellow frog with orange spots and a black handlebar mustache. Relating to the French theme, his species can be seen as a jab at the common French stereotype in which frogs, specifically frog's legs, are commonly eaten.

In the Japanese version, he seems to be more Chinese-influenced; he is named "Harumaki", which means "spring roll" (a Chinese appetizer dish), and he wears a Noodle Shirt in Doubutsu no Mori. In all versions of the games, whether Chinese or French, he retains an Asian-themed house with his favorite song being "Imperial K.K.", more fitting with the former theme than the latter.


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

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