― Picture quote, Wild World
Moe (ジンペイ, Jinpē?) is a lazy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name possibly comes from the sound a cat often makes in Chinese, "Miāo," or "Māo," (喵, 猫) meaning cat, or after the rare breed of cat (the Egyptian Mau) depending on the pronunciation of his name. It could also possibly refer to the type of anime/manga term "moe". His catchphrase, myawn, is a combination of the sound a cat makes, meow, and yawning, which reflects his lazy personality. His Japanese name, Jinpei, is a common name in Japan.



Moe's assigned artwork in Animal Forest e+.

Moe is a dark blue cat with light blue swirling stripes on several areas of his body. Moe has a pudge-like nose and forgiving, half-opened eyes with a yellow back; his pupils are vertical, thin, and black. His ears are held straight and are pink on the inside. He has a blue striped tail, arms, and legs with white, sock-looking marks on his paws and feet. His muzzle is also white. In Animal Forest e+, Moe initially wears the Fish Bone Shirt. In Wild World and City Folk, Moe initially wears the BB shirt. His looks are extremely identical to another cat villager, Tom. He is also similar to a cranky wolf, Lobo.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Moe will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Moe will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and uchi villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.


In Animal Forest e+, Moe has the same furniture styling as Bubbles the hippo does, with the only differences being that the carpet is the Classroom Floor and the wallpaper is the Green Wall.

Both in Wild World and City Folk, Moe has part of a classroom theme in his house. Moe's house has the green wall and the music room floor. Originally, his house contains a Blue bed, a kiddie dresser, an anatomical model, a green table, a dice stereo, a vision tester, model skeleton, and a stadiometer. His Dice Stereo plays K.K. Ragtime.

In New Leaf, Moe's house resembles a hospital, since he has some anatomical models, as well as a Stripe Bed behind a curtain. He also has a skeleton, and a Stripe Sofa. His CD Player plays K.K. Ragtime, and he has the Blue Wall, and Music Room Floor.

If there's one thing that Moe's really bad at, it's making a good first impression. If you can get past that, he'll be an indispensable friend.
