Jack, self-proclaimed Czar of Halloween, is a character from the Animal Crossing series whose species is unknown. He appears twice a year, first on October 1st (in (Animal Crossing: New Leaf), and then for Halloween from 6:00 PM until 1:00 AM the following day. He distributes spooky furniture, which can only be obtained through him. He wears a pumpkin on his head which, during Halloween, makes him indistinguishable from other villagers in the town who will also ask for candy. Jack, like all other holiday-related characters, was absent from Animal Crossing: Wild World, as was Halloween and candy.

Jack's debut was in Doubutsu no Mori, and its GameCube port Animal Crossing. During Halloween, Jack appears at a random spot in town, demanding candy should the player encounter him. Unlike the other villagers, who wear the same clothing as him, he will not chase you, giving the player a way to discern who is the real Jack. Upon talking to Jack, he will give the player an item of spooky furniture in exchange for candy. Doing this throughout the event will complete the set.
Jack returns in Animal Crossing: City Folk, after being absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World. He was announced on the Japanese website for City Folk, along with other characters. His role remains the same as in Animal Crossing, and he now calls himself the Czar of Halloween. He sends a letter out to players earlier in the month, warning of his arrival, and telling them to have candy ready. Nook's store starts selling candy on the 1st of October.
In New Leaf Jack can be found walking around the player's town on October 1st to October 7th (however he will disappear the day after the player speaks to him) where he will tell them about Halloween and what will happen on that night. During this time, the player cannot work at The Roost. On Halloween, Jack can be told apart from the other villagers by his darker orange pumpkin mask and the carving on it. When given a piece of candy he will then ask the player if they want their choice of a mask or piece of furniture from the Spooky Series.
Jack appears in Happy Home Designer when his amiibo card is scanned into the game via the amiibo phone, and will ask the player to build a house for him. Like all Special Characters, he will leave the theme up to the player, and won't request for certain furniture to definitely be in his house.
In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Jack appears to celebrate the Halloween Gardening Event, similar to all other gardening events. Here, he will ask for the player to plant Lolipoppies to attract bats, providing furniture once a certain amount is caught. Additinally, Jack also hosts the Halloween fishing tourney, replacing the usual Chip.
When visiting Jack's RV at the campground, the bottom screen will display the following:
- "When he's not presiding over Halloween, Jack lives simply and frugally. His only two indulgences are his decked-out camping van...and candy."
Jack gives a piece of furniture every time the player gives him Candy. All the furniture pieces look like pumpkins or Jack O'Lanterns. They are orange and, like all holiday-exclusive furniture sets, score very highly with the Happy Room Academy.

- Patched Shirt
Jack appears as a collectible trophy.
