Rudy is a jock cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name may be a reference to Rudolph, a famous fictional reindeer who has a red nose like Rudy. He shares his birthday with Isabelle and Digby. His favorite saying is a reference to the popular phrase "cats always land on their feet."

In New Horizons, Rudy has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Rudy from New Leaf.

Rudy is a cat whose dominant fur color ranges between brown to a dark red. He has white fur covering his face and the tips of his tail, paws, and toes. He has a bright red inner mouth. His inner ears are yellow, fading into a paler shade of the color as it goes in. Like his ears, his sclera are yellow and his pupils are black. He has a large red nose.

Personality[edit]

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

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

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Rudy is the one of the starter villagers, his house will have craftable items primarily from the Wooden Series. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
