Rowan (ゴメス, Gomesu, Gomez) is a tiger villager in the Animal Crossing series, having a personality change in Animal Crossing: Wild World. He first appears as a cranky islander, then he reappears in Wild World, and all later games as a jock villager.


Rowan is an orange tiger with black stripes and a large white muzzle. He has small belittling eyes and an aqua color in his ears. In Animal Crossing, he wore the Blue Aloha Shirt and a straw hat. In later games, he wears the Blue Dot Shirt.


Rowan's personality changes from a cranky islander in Animal Crossing to a jock villager in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

Rowan from Animal Crossing

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

As a cranky villager in Animal Crossing, Rowan will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace than competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone.

In Wild World onwards[edit]

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

Since Animal Crossing: Wild World, Rowan has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.

In the first Animal Crossing, Rowan's house has an island look.

In City Folk, Rowan's house has green furniture, which include the Green Bed, Green Table, Green Bench and Green Counter. The house also has an Exotic Screen, along with an Eagle and Raven Poles from the Totem Pole Set. He also displays a Sproid and grasshopper. By default, the home comes without a stereo. If Rowan obtains one, however, it will play "Aloha K.K.."

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Rowan's stereo will play "K.K. Love Song" instead.

Fruit Allergy[edit]

As an islander, he has a favorite fruit and a fruit that he is allergic to. Feeding him the allergy fruit will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. Rowan is allergic to pears and loves apples.
