Rod is a jock mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name may come from rodent, the biological order under which mice fall.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Rod is a purple mouse with blond hair and a blue and white striped bandana on his head. The inside of his ears are a bubblegum pink.

Personality[edit]

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

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

Villager information[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+, Rod can only move to the player's town if his e-Reader card is scanned. His card was one of six starter cards bundled with the game, alongside Walker, Maggie, Angus, Merry, and Willow.
