Jacob, known as Jakey in PAL regions, is a lazy bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+, after which he did not reappear until Animal Crossing: New Leaf's Welcome amiibo update.

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.



Jacob's physical appearance has 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.


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.
