“Gathering can be a tough workout. Just pace yourself and get what you need. You got this, hot dog!”
― Cobb, New Horizons
Cobb (ハカセ,Hakase?) is a jockpigvillager from the Animal Crossing series. His name and green coloration come from Cobb salad, which is made with bacon and lettuce. His catchphrase refers to the common expression "Hot dog!", used to express excitement or eagerness, but could also refer to the food hot dog, which can be made from pork or beef. His French name is a play on "porc," which is a word for pig or pork; his Italian name "Wurst" is a type of sausage. His Japanese name possibly comes from the word for "doctor" or "professor." Although he was absent from Wild World and City Folk, Cobb returns in New Leaf.
Cobb is light green pig with a darker shade of green on the right side on the top along with his ear, with both have magenta and hot pink in the inside of both, and on the back of his head, he has an X-shaped band-aid and has round glasses with black frames and clear lenses as well as yellow eyes. He also has slightly pink tipped hands and feet, which match with his tipped hands and feet. When he moves into town, he wears a Racer Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Cobb 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, Cobb 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 Cobb.
Cobb is the only jock and pig villager with the education hobby.
Before New Horizons Cobb's glasses couldn't be removed, so his glasses blink.
When Cobb is given glasses he will remove the glasses he's wearing revealing that his eyes are naturally yellow.
Cobb's green skin with its patch of darker green, bandage on the back of his head, and "scientist" or "professor" theme may reference Victor Frankenstein, or possibly a combination of Frankenstein and his creation.
Him having the jock personality may be a reference to "body builders", with Frankenstein having literally built a body.
