Louie is a jock gorilla villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, where he returns as a DLC character. Two of his initial shirts—the li'l bro's shirt and big bro's shirt—reference Luigi and Mario from the Mario franchise, respectively, while his appearance is likely a reference to Donkey Kong. Though his name is derived from Luigi, it could also be a reference to King Louie from The Jungle Book. From Welcome amiibo onward, Louie shares his catchphrase with Al's City Folk catchphrase.

In New Horizons, Louie has the fitness hobby and will wear sporty shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.


Artwork of Louie from Animal Crossing.


Louie is a gorilla with brown fur and tan skin. His round eyes are wide apart and are within a darkened section on his face. He resembles Donkey Kong, a character from the Mario franchise.


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

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