― Picture quote, Wild World
Jay (ツバクロ, Tsubakuro?) is a jock bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. His English name is derived from the species of bird, although there are no jays that have red heads like the villager. His Japanese name, is the katakana writing of 燕 (Tsubakuro), which is the Japanese word for "Swallow" (the species of bird), it also can mean "comfort," or "enjoy." His catchphrase, "Heeeeeeyy," could be a reference to Fonzie from the show Happy Days.

He appears on the album cover for King K.K.



Jay is a bird with blue red and white feathers. His beak and legs are orangey-yellow. His tail is entirely blue. He is similar in appearance to a swallow. His eyebrows are black. He initially, carries a Yellow Umbrella on rainy days. He looks similar to Falco from Starfox.


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


Jay's house has a classical theme, with K.K. Waltz playing on his gramaphone. In Animal Crossing, Jay has the Perfect painting in his house. As shown on the side, Jay likes to collect instruments. Jay's carpet is the classic carpet and his wallpaper is the ornate wallpaper. Jay has a string set and a vibraphone. The perfect painting and the instruments are also left out in the later games.
