Jay is a jock bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. His English name is derived from the species of bird of the same name, although there are no jays that have red heads like the villager. His Japanese name is the katakana writing of the kanji 燕 (Tsubakuro), "Swallow" (the species of bird). Also, his forked tail, red head, blue body, and white belly suggest a barn swallow or a wire-tailed swallow. His Japanese name is also derived from "comfort" or "enjoy."

In New Horizons, Jay has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Jay DnM.png

Jay is a bird villager, with blue, red, and white feathers and an orange beak and feet, and is similar to a swallow. He is similar to Robin, another bird villager.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Jay is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Jay goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
