Cousteau (ハルマキ, Harumaki) is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Forest, but was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World and made a reappearance in Animal Crossing: City Folk. He appears again in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. As a jock villager, he will be interested in sport and fitness, as well as appear hospitable and competitive towards the player. His name is French, and some famous Frenchmen have had it as a second name. His name and personality together may refer to Jacques Cousteau, a famous Frenchman who researched the ocean. His initial phrase, "oui oui", is French for "yes yes" (or agreement, so usually just "yes"). His species relates to the common French stereotype in which frogs are a type of food, specifically frog's legs. Like Cousteau, Gaston the rabbit and Marcel the dog are french.


Cousteau from Animal Crossing

Cousteau is a yellow frog with orange spots. He also has a black mustache on his face which goes with his French name and quote. His original shirt is a Vegetarian Shirt, which may relate to another French stereotype, that the French are professional cooks - although vegetarian restaurants are rare there, which makes it debatable. Another explanation for his shirt, could be the colors, which are the very same as the French flag. He may be mistaken for a Cranky villager due to his elderly and adult appearance.


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

As a jock villager, he will be outgoing and will always enjoy exercising and staying fit and is friendly towards the player, but he will not get along with lazy villagers due to their lack of exercising and he will not get along with snooty villagers since he does not care about fashion and he will ask about their weight and physical appearance. He will get along with normal and peppy villagers.
