Samson is a jock mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His catchphrase, "pipsqueak," is based on the sound made by mice and the term pipsqueak, which means little. His Japanese catchphrase, "chū," is based on the Japanese onomatopoeia for a mouse's squeaking, chūchū (ちゅうちゅう). His favorite saying in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a pun on Theodore Roosevelt's famous quote, "Speak softly and carry a big stick."

In New Horizons, Samson has the fitness hobby and will wear sporty shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Samson from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Samson is a smoky gray mouse with a black nose and a wide smile. He has pink in the inside of his ears and black stripes on his tail. The shape of his black vertical eyes resemble Dora's, and his arched eyebrows resemble Chico and Dora's. When Samson is in a good mood, he will consistently display a large, toothy grin while he talks, similar to Chico. If Samson is angry or depressed, he will move his mouth in a normal manner when he talks.

Personality[edit]

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

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

    Profile: Above all other things, Samson loves to work out. He's suffered from an inferiority complex ever since he was a kid, mainly because he was the runt of the litter, and a mouse, to boot. Do NOT tell him he looks scrawny.
