I'm an enthusiast, but I'm absolutely not a geek!
― Jacques, New Leaf

Jacques (ジョッキー, Jokkī?, Jockey) is a smug bird villager that first appeared in New Leaf. His name in both languages comes from a Disk Jockey (aka, DJ) In addition, his name is French for Jack in English, similar to his French catchphrase 'zut alors', which translates as 'shucks'. He has the music hobby.


Jacques is a bird villager. He has a full dark-blue body, and a yellow beak. His eyes are always half closed, and are a dull blue in color. He has brown eyebrows, as well as a brown goatee visible on his chin. On his head is a green knit cap. The character is likely meant to resemble renowned oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, who also wore a knit cap. Jacques highly likely resembles a blackbird.


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

Smug villagers are very polite, kind, and gentleman-like. As a smug villager, Jacques will get along easily with other villagers. Smug villagers get along well with most villagers, their personality appearing to be a mix of the other personality types. Smug villagers will stroke their egos from time to time, going on about how cool they are.

Generally, Jacques will get along with lazy, normal, snooty and peppy villagers, and may conflict with cranky villagers.


In New Leaf, Jacques has a setup for composing music, with several items like a Music stand, Amp, Vibraphone, and DJ's Turntable, which plays K.K. House. He also has two Sleek sofas and Standing spotlights in symmetrical positions. He uses the Concrete wall and Sleek carpet as wallpaper and flooring.

In New Horizons, Jacques's house is similar to how it was in New Leaf, but the Sleek series is mostly substituted with Diner series furniture. He has the Diner sofa, mini table, counter table and two chairs, and the neon clock and sign. He retains his DJ's turntable, which is accompanied by his Laptop and Synthesizer as his new musical equipment. He has a couple additional items hanging on his Concrete Wall, such as a Surveillance camera, two Starry garlands, and an Exit sign. He uses the Steel Flooring and, notably, his favorite song has changed from K.K. House to K.K. Technopop.

Jacques' preferred theme is cool. His profile says:

Don't let Jacques's pretentious demeanor turn you off. He's actually just overcompensating for the fact that he can't down a cold drink without getting a killer headache.
