Sparro is a jock bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name comes from sparrow, a type of bird.

In New Horizons, Sparro 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.



Artwork of Sparro from Welcome amiibo.

Sparro is a brown bird with a yellow beak who resembles a Eurasian tree sparrow. He has a dark eye spot around his eyes and under his beak. The sides of his face are tan with a blush mark, which resembles the black ear spots the Eurasian tree sparrow has. He also has a tan abdomen and yellow legs.


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

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