Cousteau is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Cousteau is a French surname, and his catchphrase, "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.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Cousteau from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Cousteau is a yellow frog with orange spots and a black handlebar mustache. 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.

Personality[edit]

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.
