My name's Curly, so you can call me Curly, Hah hah!
― Curly introducing himself to the player, City Folk

Curly (ハムカツ Hamukatsu?, Hamcuts) is a jock pig villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name comes from his curly tail. It is also possible his name is a reference to Jerome Lester Horwitz, a.k.a. Curly Howard, of the comedian trio "The Three Stooges", evidenced by his bald head (shared with most other pigs) and his initial catchprase "nyoink," which could a portmanteau of Curly's "nyuk nyuk nyuk" catchphrase and "oink", the onomatopoeia for a pig's snort. His Japanese name, which literally means "ham cutlet," is a reference to a budget-friendly version of tonkatsu that uses ham instead of pork. He has the fitness hobby.

Curly in Animal Crossing

Curly is a pink pig with reddish pink cheeks. The inside of his ears are dark blue and he has a curly tail, which may or may not be a reference to his name. He has light pink hooves, and wears the Green Bar shirt when he first moves into the player's town. He also has a pink nose with his nostrils sticking out like all of the pigs in the Animal Crossing series. His eyes are wide open and without any certain color.


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


Curly's house has a Green or Cabin Theme with many furniture with it, there is a Mini Croakoid and a Tape Deck that plays K.K. Reggae.

In New Horizons, Curly's house no longer has a set theme, but rather has a typical household layout. The upper left section of his house is set up as a kitchen, consisting of a white water cooler, pop magnetic knife rack, red gas range, pink refrigerator, light wood wooden table with orange tablecloth, and yellow pop-up toaster. Scattered around the rest of his house are the colorful lines-patterned silver bunk bed, red double sofa, black bathroom sink, and yellow cute music player atop a wooden-block stool. Curly's wallpaper is the Common Wall, and his flooring is the Wooden-knot Flooring. He has a yellow argyle rug outlining the kitchen area.

Profile Curly eats more than you would believe, but he remains completely clueless about pig jokes. He'll polish off an enormous meal, and someone will say, "What a pig!" And he'll say, "Thanks!"
