― Bruce, New Leaf
Bruce (ブルース, Burūsu?) is a cranky deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. He made his debut in New Leaf. Bruce also appears in the Japanese-only manga adaptation, Tobidase Dōbutsu no Mori Minna Deseseragi Mura Life.


Bruce is a slate blue deer with a pale stripe pattern on his forehead. The insides of his ears are orange, and he has pointy yellow horns which curve backwards. He more resembles a gazelle than a deer.


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Bruce will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Bruce will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.


In New Leaf, his house consists of lots of urban furniture, such as the telephone box and the iron frame, similar to an alley. On his cassette player, Bruce has K.K. Blues playing.
