It couldn't be in the river, right?
― Cousteau, after losing his house key, City Folk
Cousteau (ハルマキ, Harumaki?) is a jock frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Forest, but was absent in Wild World and made a reappearance in City Folk. His name is French, and some famous Frenchmen have had it as a second name. His name and personality together may refer to Jacques Cousteau. His initial phrase, "oui oui", is French for "yes yes" (or agreement, so usually just "yes"). His species relates to the common French stereotype in which frogs are a type of food, specifically frog's legs.

Despite his appearance and initial phrase in English-language localizations of the game, his name in Japanese means "spring roll", a traditionally Chinese dish. His house also has an east-Asian theme to it.

He has the fitness hobby.

Cousteau in Animal Crossing

Cousteau is a yellow frog with orange spots. He also has a black mustache on his face which goes with his French name and quote. He has white on the tips of both hands, and a brownish color on his feet. His original shirt is a Rally Tee.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Cousteau has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Cousteau 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 Cousteau.


In Animal Crossing and City Folk, Cousteau has many items from the Exotic Series, such as the Exotic Bed and the Exotic Screen. He also uses the matching wall and flooring, the Exotic Rug and the Exotic Wall. In Animal Crossing, K.K. Reggae plays. Beginning with Animal Forest e+, Imperial K.K. plays on a Reel-To-Reel to fit the Asian feel of it.

Cousteau's house in New Leaf is a bit different from the past games. It now has an Asian restaurant feel to it, due to the Lazy-Susan Table, salad bar, and revolving spice rack. He still has Exotic furniture, such as the Exotic Table, and two Exotic Screens. He also still has the Exotic Rug, and Exotic Wall, as well as a Reel To Reel playing Imperial K.K.
