Tom is a cranky cat villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World. His name is based on tomcat, another name for a male cat.

In New Horizons, Tom has the education hobby and can be seen wearing rimmed glasses, reading a novel while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Tom from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Tom is a blue tabby cat with a white-tipped tail and muzzle. His ears are straight and blue with a strawberry pink interior. His yellow eyes are oval-shaped and are pointed, with black irises.

Personality[edit]

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

As a cranky villager, Tom will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace than competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, with whom he will share deeper conversations. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone.
