Jitters is a jock bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World and has appeared in all subsequent games. His Japanese name is based on a famous soccer player, and likewise, his default outfit, New Horizons house, and Happy Home Designer and Happy Home Paradise house requests are themed around soccer.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Jitters from Wild World.

Jitters is a green bird with yellow around his neck, orange beak, and abdomen, though it is obscured by his shirt. He also has blue on his wings and lower abdomen and blue circles around his eyes. He seems to be based on a parakeet.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Jitters 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 to 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, Jitters goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
