Tybalt is a jock tiger villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, being mostly replaced by Rowan, another tiger who was given the jock personality in Animal Crossing: Wild World. Data for Tybalt exists in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer but ultimately remains unused.

The name Tybalt is most likely taken from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, being named after the character of the same name. This is especially likely considering that another character in the play makes a scene nicknaming Tybalt the "King of Cats," which in itself is a reference to Tybalt/Tibert the Cat from the story of Reynard the Fox. The latter part of his Japanese catchphrase, da tora, translates to "tiger," relating to his species.

In New Horizons, Tybalt has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.



Artwork of Tybalt from Animal Crossing.

Tybalt is a yellow tiger with brown stripes and pink inside of his ears. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, brown rings are added around his eyes. He has thick, black eyebrows that are slanted inward, giving him an angered or determined expression.


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

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