Jacob, known as Jakey in PAL regions, is a lazy bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. After his debut in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he would remain absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. His name may come from the jay bird.

In New Horizons, Jacob has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Jacob is a bird with several colors. He has a bit of green atop his head. Orange runs down his forehead and over his eyebrows. He has small black pupils, which become red when shocked. His eyebrows are high up on his head, and they are curved downwards. His chin, cheeks, legs, and feet are yellow. He has white around his eyes, and his beak is purple. His feathers are colored red, green, and yellow.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Jacob has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Jacob goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Jacob is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. 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.

    Trivia[edit]

    • Jacob appears in the e-Reader card artwork for "King K.K." However, from Animal Crossing: New Leaf onward, the album cover artwork replaces Jacob with Jay, another bird villager.
    • Although Jacob exhibits a different name in PAL regions, he is not called Jakey in many instances in Pocket Camp, instead referred to by his North American name.
