Moose is a jock mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name is a cross between his species, a mouse, and possibly from the hair product, mousse - likely relating to his unique hair style.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Moose from City Folk.

Moose is a blue mouse with long, brown hair, pop-art eyes, brown ears, and a pink, rat-like tail. He has a raised eyebrow and a smirk with buck teeth.

Personality[edit]

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

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