Bam (タケル, Takeru?) is a jock deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name either comes from Bambi, a deer in the classic Disney film of the same name, or the onomatopoeic word involving a loud impact.

He has the play hobby.


Bam in New Leaf

Bam is a blue deer with large light blue outlines around his eyes and a snout of the same color. He has deep blue freckles above his black nose and thick eyebrows. His eyes are dark auburn with brown pupils, his ears are light orange, and his antlers and hooves are a dark brown. He also has several light blue spots on the back of his head, like a fawn. He wears a Green Warm-Up Jacket in New Leaf and carries a blue dot parasol, when it rains. In New Horizons, he wears a green Athletic Jacket.


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

Bam has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Bam is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Bam.


In New Leaf, Bam's house is filled with sports equipment, such as a hurdle, a water fountain, and an office locker. He also has a basket of basketballs, a folding chair, and a ping-pong table. DJ K.K. plays on his CD player which is on top of his ringside table. He has the concrete wall and office flooring.

In New Horizons, Bam's house is dark blue with white trim, a walnut latticework door, and a gray slate roof. The interior has the concrete wall and the simple blue flooring. He has a green ping pong table, a blue corner, a utility sink, a strategy meeting whiteboard, a white outdoor table, a green folding chair, a silver upright locker, a blue cute music player, and a stack of books.
