Curly is a jock pig villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name likely comes from his curly tail. His name may also reference Curly Howard of the Three Stooges, since his catchphrase "nyoink," is a portmanteau of "oink," the sound a pig makes, and "nyuk-nyuk-nyuk," an onomatopoeic rendering of Curly Howard's laugh.

In New Horizons, Curly has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Curly from Animal Crossing.

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

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Curly 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, Curly goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Curly is the one of the starter villagers, his house will have craftable items primarily from the Wooden Series. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
