Roald is a jock penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. He may be 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.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Roald from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Roald is a dark navy blue penguin and may be an Adélie 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 wings are the same color as his back.

Personality[edit]

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

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

    Profile: At first glance, he looks a little chubby, but Roald's whole body is a well-toned bundle of muscle. He won't tell anyone his workout secrets. You can bet it's not push-ups, though—when he's lying on his belly, his arms don't even reach the floor!
