Sheldon is a jock, squirrel villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name may refer to the shell of a chestnut, the nut of which he bears a resemblance to. His Japanese name is a combination of kuri, "chestnut," and risu, "squirrel." His initial catchphrase, "cardio," refers to aerobic exercise, reflecting his jock personality. His Japanese catchphrase, like his name, is a reference to chestnuts.



Sheldon is an orange squirrel, with yellow accents and black freckles on his cheeks. His eyes are a margin smaller than most other villagers.


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

As a jock villager, Sheldon has a great interest in sports and fitness. He will appear competitive when events are going on. Sheldon will sometimes give the player advice on sports and exercising. He may offend snooty and cranky villagers for the lack of their fitness. Lazy villagers will often conflict him, due to having opposite lifestyles.
