Roald is a jock penguin villager from the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game so far. Roald is likely named after Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian polar explorer who led the first successful expedition to reach the South Pole, as well as being the first person to reach both poles. His Japanese name is derived from "penguin."

In New Horizons, Roald has the fitness hobby and will be more frequently seen participating in exercises by stretching or lifting heavy weights.

Characteristics[edit]

Roald in Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Roald is a dark navy blue adelie penguin. His eyes have large, black pupils, which become arch-shaped when Roald is delighted. He has a stomach that is white, and a beak, as every penguin has, that is yellow-orange. His feet are the same color as his beak, and his flippers (wings) are the same color as his back.

Personality[edit]

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

Roald has a jock personality. He claims to be the strongest villager in the town and talks about fitness and muscles, much to the dismay of lazy villagers. Sometimes snooty villagers will ask him to move their house as a tease. Roald is an active villager, so he is rarely inside his house and never seems to get ill. He loves to look for bugs, clothes, and fossils. He will get along well with sisterly villagers due to their tough, resilient nature, as well as smug villagers due to their shared sense of humour.
