Curly is a jock, pig villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name comes from his curly tail. It is also possible his name is a reference to the Three Stooges, as his catchphrase is "nyoink", which could be based off Curly the Stooge's "nyuk nyuk nyuk" catchphrase. His Japanese name is a dish that is known in English as a Ham Cutlet.

Curly is a pink pig with red cheeks. The inside of his ears are blue and he has a curly tail. He initially wears the Green-Bar Shirt. Along with the other pig villagers, Curly's ears were originally pointed, then became flopped in Animal Crossing: City Folk onward.


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

Curly has a jock personality, which means he enjoys working out and talking about fitness. He will appear friendly and hospitable towards the player, and flirtatious towards female players, saying "The night is young...and so are we." He enjoys collecting fossils and may ask for one in return for a gift. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Curly will sometimes say that he asked another villager what their favorite food is and received the answer 'pork pie'. Curly will scream "NOOOO" because he thinks the other villager wants to eat him.


In Animal Crossing: Wild World, he has a Cabin Couch, Cabin Table, a Classic Bookcase, Pachira, and Caladium. K.K. Reggae is playing on his Tape Deck. When collecting furniture he will usually ask for red furniture.
