Jack, the self-proclaimed Czar of Halloween, is a character in the Animal Crossing series whose species is unknown. He is the host of Halloween, and he distributes items from the Spooky Series furniture, which can only be obtained through him prior to New Leaf. He wears a pumpkin on his head which, during Halloween, makes him appear similar to the villagers in the town, who are dressed similarly. Jack, like all other holiday-related characters, is absent from Animal Crossing: Wild World along with Halloween.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

Jack's first appears in Doubutsu no Mori and later appears in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+. 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 the player, giving them a way to discern who is the real Jack. Upon talking to Jack, he will give the player an item from the Spooky Series in exchange for Candy. Doing this throughout the event will complete the series.

In City Folk[edit]

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[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf Jack can be found walking around the player's town on October 1 to October 7 (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. He owns an RV that sells 12 Halloween-themed items for 3 MEOW Coupons each.

In New Horizons[edit]

The letter sent by Jack in New Horizons.

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Jack returns in the 1.5.0 Fall Update, reprising his role as host of the Halloween event. On October 1 he sends the player Jack's Portrait along with a letter informing them about Halloween. On Halloween he will give the player Jack's Face or Jack's Robe, two clothing items based on his appearance, or the Haunt Reaction if given Candy or a Lollipop. He can also give the player the DIY recipes for the Spooky Carriage and Spooky Wand if given a Lollipop.

Jack's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting him to Photopia via his amiibo card.

In Happy Home Designer[edit]

Jack appears in Animal Crossing: 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 leaves the theme up to the player, and does not request for certain furniture to definitely be in his house.

In Pocket Camp[edit]

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 Pumpkins to attract bats, providing furniture once a certain amount is caught. Additionally, Jack also hosts the Halloween fishing tourney, replacing the usual Chip.
