There's this hero of mine who wears a red cap. And get this-it's his 30th anniversary!
― Louie, Happy Home Designer

Louie Gallery

Louie (マッスル, Massuru?, Muscle) is a jock gorilla villager in the Animal Crossing series. His Japanese name is a reference to jock villagers talking about their muscles. He was one of many villagers to be cut from Wild World to City Folk, and he wouldn't make another appearance until Happy Home Designer as a free DLC download at the games' launch in Europe (October 2nd, 2015)[1], and in Japan from October 1st, 2015 to November 1st, 2015. He came with exclusive items and now wears the Big Bro's shirt this time around. He was available for North America starting September 26 via Nintendo Zone, and was available via SpotPass on October 6th. He was available to download again in Japan from January 5th, 2016 to January 31st, 2016.[2] His name may be a reference to Luigi from the Super Mario series.

Louie returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.

He has the fitness hobby.


Louie in Animal Crossing

He is a brown ape who resembles Donkey Kong. He initially wears the Lil Bro's shirt, which refers to Luigi, Mario's younger brother. He carries around a daisy umbrella while it's raining.


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

Louie has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Louie 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 Louie.


In Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+, Louie's house has many drums and Cabin Series items. His house also contains a Totem Pole, and other random objects fitting into the Cabin theme.

In New Horizons, Louie's house is styled as a gym. The right side of his house is fitted with numerous exercise equipment, including a black punching bag, black pull-up bar stand, weight bench, and black exercise bike. Hanging on the walls are a black wall-mounted TV (50 In.), light brown formal paper, and black double-sided wall clock. The left side of Louie's house is designed like a rest station or changing room. In the upper left corner, he has a white shower booth, white water cooler, white locker, white changing room with black curtain, and vanilla-flavored protein shaker which sits atop a silver tool cart. Behind the locker and changing room are a gray stadiometer and white digital scale. His wallpaper is the White Perforated-board Wall, and his flooring is the Colorful Tile Flooring with Brown Wooden-deck Rugs set to the left.

  • Louie's name is based off of Luigi, also represented by his initial outfit, the Lil Bro's Shirt.
  • Odd enough, his counterpart, Alfonso, continued appearing in the later Animal Crossing games, while Louie was removed for unknown reasons. Louie would return in Happy Home Designer, but instead of the Lil Bro's Shirt, he is wearing a Big Bro Shirt like Alfonso.
  • He wasn't the only Nintendo character named Louie with the name taken from Luigi. Louie from Pikmin 2 did as well.
  • In Happy Home Designer, his home request is a "30th-anniversary party", yet another reference to Mario and Luigi, since 2015 is the 30th year since the release of Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and 2015 being the year of Happy Home Designer's release.
  • He has the same catchphrase as Yodel in HHD.
  • Louie shares his birthday with Fauna. Both of them have a birthday on March 26th.
  • As sometimes revealed on April Fool's Day in New Leaf, Louie is the eldest of 5 siblings.
  • Louie is the only Nintendo-themed villager to not be removed as of New Horizons.
