Tank is a jock rhinoceros villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. He is the only jock rhinoceros in the series. His name may refer to the tank-like strength of his species.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Tank from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Tank is a pale blue rhinoceros with three white horns along his head, as well as a green leaf on the back of his head, similar to Tangy. He has white hooves and dark blue inside his ears.

Personality[edit]

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

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