Tank (くるぶし, Kurubushi) is a jock, rhino villager from the Animal Crossing series. As a jock villager, he will appear competitive and fitness obsessed. However, despite these obsessions he appears hospitable towards the player, but may cause arguments with other villagers usually over their fitness. His name may come from the sheer strength a rhino has. It may also be possible the name comes from a type of tank called a Rhino Tank. His name may also be a reference to his tank-top shirt, which is commonly used when exercising, matching his jock personality. His catchphrase, 'kerPOW', reflects on the typical nature of a jock villager.



Tank is a pale blue rhino with three white horns along his head, as well as a green leaf on the back of his head, similar to Tangy. He also has white hooves and dark blue inside his ears. His initial shirt is the No. 1 Shirt which is red with a light blue number one, and goes with his jock personality.


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


He 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 and the player, usually criticizing their fitness or activeness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when in deep, meaningful discussions which may leave him confused and upset when talking to other villagers. 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 villagers, by questioning their physical fitness and age, but he will get along with normal villagers, but may, on the rare occasion, anger them. Tank will find it easy to get along with cranky and uchi villagers.
