Genji is a jock rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. 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 wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Genji from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

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.

Personality[edit]

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

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