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.

Curly is a pink pig with red cheeks. The inside of his ears are blue and he has a curly tail.


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.
