Croque is a cranky frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He was introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name derives from the onomatopoeia of the sound frogs make: “croak”, while his catchphrase highlights his cranky personality.



Croque's concept may be loosely based on fire, with a sun-like pattern on his face, his photo quote, and with his seasonal home. His mouth is very near the bottom of his face, with a mustache on top of it. Croque is mostly seen frowning or annoyed, due to his pouty mouth and arched eyebrows. Croque also has a sinister-looking mustache just below the center of his face. His skin is a dark orange, with yellowish tips on his limbs.


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

Cranky villagers are usually depicted as stereotypical peaceful, older animals. They enjoy fishing, bug catching, and other hobbies and interactions. They are the male counterpart of snooty villagers, and fill up a "fatherly" role for the player, often giving them advice and are enthusiastic about competing and chatting with them. Cranky villagers tend to have trouble getting along with smug, uchi, peppy, and lazy villagers, but will admire the latter's easy-going demeanor. As a frog, he enjoys the rain, and as such will never be seen with an umbrella, even in heavy downpour. He will also not be seen around the village until late in the day and will stay up long past midnight, as the cranky archetype does. Sometimes, Croque will be seen walking in a rage around the village, saying: "I'm surrounded by a bunch of jokers! [catchphrase]!" Though random pouting is not exclusive to Croque, or even the cranky archetype, he is one to anger quickly, especially if the player hits him with its net multiple times, complaining: "Hey, watch where you're swingin' that thing!"

His house looks like an autumnal forest. He has two Tall Clankoids by the entrance of his house. He also has two Tall Lanterns in the center. There is a Bonfire, Deer Scare, an Outdoor Bath, and three trees near the back. If he has a stereo, it plays K.K. Jongara.
