― Picture quote, Wild World
Genji (ゲンジ, Genji?) is a jock rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. He retains his name from the Japanese version, and both reference the titular character of The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, which is considered by some to be the world's first novel. His initial phrase, "otaku," is a formal second-person pronoun in Japanese; it can also refer to someone with an obsessive personality, which reflects on jock villagers' fitness and health obsessions.



Genji is a white rabbit with dark mahogany brown ears and light pink cheeks. The brown from his ears go down to circle all the way around his head. He has squinted eyes and a constant frown, making him look like a cranky villager. His paws, feet, and bunny tail are tipped chocolate brown while the rest is white except his ears. He also has tiny, round eyebrows that are brown. He initially wears the misty shirt- a green shirt that has white mist clouds on it. On rainy days, he carries a paper parasol. Because of his appearance he maybe mistaken for a female. 


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Genji 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, Genji 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 uchi villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Genji.


Genji's house is the style of a Zen Garden, similar in design to Pekoe or Kabuki's house. He has the Sea View and the Shanty Mat. He plays King K.K. or K.K. Folk on his Tape Deck and has a Hearth, a Tall Lantern, and some other pieces to complete his Zen theme.
