Jacques is a smug, bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name in both English and Japanese comes from the word Disk Jockey, or DJ, for short. His English name may also come from Jacques Cousteau, an oceanographer who also wore a beanie. His catchphrase is French for "darn it," referencing his name, the French counterpart for Jack.



Jacques is a dark navy bird resembling a starling. He sports a green beanie, a short goatee and initially wears a Red Flannel Shirt. He has brown eyebrows and lazy blue eyes. He has a yellow beak, and bright green stripes around his ankles and the tips of his wings and tail.


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

Jacques is a smug villager, meaning he is well-mannered, polite, and friendly. He is quite flirtatious and has a fair number of unseen hobbies that include collecting plastic bottle caps and constantly talking about trains. He enjoys complimenting other villagers, including the player, and he is generous and quite easy to befriend. He is fairly easy to disappoint when the player refuses to trade in items and if the player fails to complete a favor from him. He is very interested in fashion, and when shopping in GracieGrace or Able Sisters, he seems to be big fans of the two tailors. Like all other smug villagers, Jacques falls asleep at 2:00 a.m. and wakes up at 8:30 a.m.
