Rod (ジャン,Jan?, Jean) is a jockmousevillager in the Animal Crossing series. His name comes from "rodent", a category in which mice fall. His initial phrase, "ace," means "to succeed easily" and "highest quality," which will relate to a jock villager's competitive spirit. He first appeared in Animal Forest e+, and was exclusive to his e-Card which came with the game. He appears on the album cover for K.K. Parade. He appears on the cover of New Horizons. He has the fitness hobby.
Rod is a purple mouse who wears a blue-and-white striped bandana on his head, making him resemble a pirate. He has two white whiskers on the sides of his cheeks along with a round black nose, brown oval eyes, and bubblegum-pink ears. He has a crescent-shaped tuft of blond hair that sticks out of his bandana. Removing his bandana by replacing it with another hat reveals that he also has shorter bangs swept away from his face. Prior to New Horizons, he wears Zipper Shirt as his initial outfit, but this changes to a blue Striped Tank that matches his bandana.
