Tad is a jock frog villager from 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.



Tad DnM.png

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


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

Tad has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.

Tad's house in Animal Crossing

Tad's house has a loosely aquatic theme, with a paddling pool, goldfish, and the entire froggy set. Tad also has various gyroids and two elephant slides. These slides, combined with the playroom wall, reinforce impressions that Tad is very young, hence the name. This implication, however, is not mentioned in-game.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, Tad's house and RV has an agricultural theme, containing a tractor, several barrels, and cornstalks.

If you can't find Tad, he's probably at the gym. If he's not at the gym, then chances are he's on a run. Still can't find him? Check his bed. That guy needs some rest!
