Rudy is a jock cat villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. 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 picture quote is a reference to the popular phrase "cats always land on their feet."

In New Horizons, Rudy has the play hobby and will be more frequently seen running around the island, sometimes with other villagers.



Rudy in 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 sclerae are yellow and his pupils are black. He has a large red nose.


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

As a jock villager, Rudy often talks about physical fitness and sports, and he enjoys working out. He will get along with other jock villagers and peppy villagers, due to their shared interests and personalities. He may unintentionally offend snooty, cranky and lazy villagers, due to their conflicting lifestyles. When he is seen at Re-Tail, he will be unable to make up his mind on what to buy. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, and will often ask the player for a contest if his current hobby is bug catching or fishing. Rudy will fall asleep at 12 AM and wakes up at 7 AM.
