Louie is a jock gorilla villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori and after 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.

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

Louie is a brown ape who 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 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.
