Tad is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. Initially, Tad was absent in all games after Doubutsu no Mori e+, but he later returned in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo alongside fellow frogs Huck and Raddle. He has appeared in every installment since. His name likely comes from the word "tadpole," the name given to a young frog.

In New Horizons, Tad 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]

Artwork of Tad from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Tad is a dark green frog with white eyes and black pupils peering to the left. He has a cleft, smiling mouth.

Personality[edit]

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

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