― Jitters, City Folk
Jitters (ジーニョ, Jīnyo?, Zinho) is a jock bird villager from the Animal Crossing series, who made his debut in Wild World. Jitters seems to be a representation of the Latin-American culture, especially Brazilian culture, as he wears a Soccer Tee (which resembles the Brazilian soccer team uniform), has K.K. Samba playing in his house (Samba is a popular musical style in Brazil), and has the coloration of the Brazilian flag. His name refers to "coffee jitters" - a side effect some experience after drinking coffee (Brazil is the world's largest coffee producer), and his Japanese name "Zinho" is diminutive particle commonly used in Brazilian Soccer players names. He has the fitness hobby.

Jitters in Wild World

Jitters is a green bird with yellow around his orange beak, and blue on the feathers and his belly. He has blue circles around his big, round eyes. He seems to be based off of a hummingbird. Jitters's initial clothing is the Soccer Tee. His color scheme resembles the Brazilian flag, similar to the music in his house, K.K. Samba.


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


Jitters has K.K. Samba as the music in his house. His flooring and wallpaper is backyard flooring and wallpaper. His house has sprinklers and bugs. Jitters' house looks like a backyard. He has the barbecue, two oil drums, and lounge chair.
