Rooney is a cranky kangaroo villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Along with Walt, he is one of the first male kangaroos to appear in the series, and he was the very first to be revealed.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Rooney from New Leaf.

Rooney is a kangaroo who is primarily light blue, with a shiny black nose and a lime green underbelly. A small portion of his tail's underside is also lime green. He has semi-circular eyes with gray eyebrows, green irises and no pupils. The eyes slant downwards, making him appear stern or angry. His ears are lime green on the inside, and appear to be covered with a brown marking resembling hair, which also covers some of his snout. His feet are black, and his hands are red, each hand having a black stripe across it. These traits make it appear as though Rooney is wearing gloves and shoes.

Personality[edit]

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

As a cranky villager, Rooney will appear mature but unkind. He will be rude to most villagers, including the player at first. Once the player builds a friendship with Rooney, he will appear kinder to them. He will be annoyed by jock villagers for criticizing his age and fitness, and peppy villagers, whose childish, upbeat nature runs in opposition to his more sophisticated and grumpy nature. In addition, the arrogance of smug villagers will also inhibit his ability to get along with them. He can sometimes get along with big sister villagers, but the two tend to clash a lot as both are blunt and heavily opinionated. He will usually get along with normal villagers, who are kind to all personalities, but may upset them with something he says, usually an unpleasant comment concerning another villager. He will get along with most lazy villagers due to admiring their laid-back lifestyle, and snooty villagers due to both personalities being more mature and sophisticated.
