Tom is a cranky cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in almost all the games except for Animal Crossing: Wild World. His name is based on tomcats, another name for male cats. His Japanese name, Bantam, is short for "bantamweight," a weight division in sports such as boxing.



Tom DnM.png

Tom is a blue tabby cat with a white-tipped tail and muzzle. He resembles Rover, Punchy, and Moe. His ears are straight and blue with a strawberry pink interior. His yellow eyes are ovalish and are pointed, with a black iris.


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.
