Genji is a jock rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name could refer to two things. Genji could refer either to the era in Japanese history or the titular character in The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, which is often considered to be the world's first novel. His physical appearance corroborates the latter, with his design being based on the appearance of Japanese noblemen like the title character of the Shikibu novel. His catchphrase prior to New Horizons, "otaku," is a Japanese pejorative for people with life-consuming interests (also used in English as a loanword for fans of Japanese media), while his catchphrase in New Horizons, "mochi," is a type of Japanese rice cake made with rice flour pounded into paste.

In New Horizons, Genji has the fitness hobby and will be more frequently seen participating in exercises by stretching or lifting heavy weights.


Genji in Animal Crossing.


Genji is a snowy white rabbit with dark mahogany brown ears and pink cheeks. The brown from his ears go down to circle all the way around his head. His paws, feet, and bunny tail are tipped chocolate brown while the rest is white except his ears. He also has small, round eyebrows that are black. In his official artwork for Animal Crossing, Genji is holding what appears to be a Scroll, one of the diaries in the game.


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

Genji has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness regime. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when in deep, meaningful discussions. He will get along well with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and smug villagers, by questioning their physical fitness and their fashion sense, but he will get along with normal villagers, but may, on the rare occasion, anger them. He likes clothes and will often ask for a certain shirt.
