“I've got my eye on you, bucko!”Roscoe (シュバルツ, Shubarutsu?, Schwartz) is a cranky horse villager in the Animal Crossing series. He is also the only horse with a cranky personality. His initial phrase, "nay", is a reference to his species, as the sound a horse makes is ”neigh”. Since “nay” is also another way to say “no”, it may refer to his cranky personality. He first appears in Animal Forest e+, as an exclusive, and subsequently in Wild World and City Folk. Roscoe also shares his name with the award winning jockey, Roscoe Goose. His Japanese name, Schwartz, means 'black' in German, reflecting the color of Roscoe's body.
― Picture quote, Wild World
He has the music hobby.
Roscoe is a black horse with a dark blue-gray mane. His tail is tipped with the same color as his mane is. His very wide eyes are red with small black pupils, and are half-lidded in such a way that they could appear tired or angry in his default expression. The inside of his ears are dark purple. When narrowing his eyes, his scleras turn yellow. His muzzle is a very dark, slightly brownish gray, but is lighter than the rest of his body. His hooves are the same color as his muzzle. He initially wears the Checkered Tee in Animal Forest e+ and City Folk. In New Horizons his initial outfit is a black biker jacket with a silver zipper and multiple snaps.
|Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.|
In Animal Forest e+, Roscoe has the same house as Rolf the tiger's, only that he has changed the wallpaper and the flooring which is the Lattice Wall and the Checkered Tile. K.K. Dirge is played on a Gold Stereo with two Bowtoids.
In Wild World and City Folk, Roscoe's house has a modern theme, featuring many items from the Modern Series. Roscoe also has two chess pieces in his room - the white knight and black knight. Knights in chess are represented by horses, a reflection of his species. He also has a baby bear which, to some, seems out of character for a cranky villager. In Wild World, he has a plant, a petrol thing, a modern lamp and modern sofa, a white chess piece and a candle. If he has a stereo, it will play K.K. Dirge. In City Folk, he has a modern sofa.
In New Leaf, Roscoe's house is furnished mostly with items from the Sleek series, along with a weeping fig plant, and a metal guitar with an amp.
In New Horizons, Roscoe has black furniture from various furniture series and sets. From the Rattan set, he owns the rattan bed, rattan low table, rattan table lamp, and a rattan end table that has a throwback skull radio. He also has a double sofa, iron hanger stand, skull doorplate, DIY workbench, and an electric guitar propped up against an amp. He plays K.K. D&B on his portable record player. For wallpaper, he uses the black-crown wall, and for flooring, he uses the monochromatic tile flooring.

Roscoe's preferred theme is cool. His profile says:
Have you ever seen a dark-red eye floating in the night sky? Yeah, that was just Roscoe.

- Roscoe has a heavily influenced Chess theme. Aside from being a black horse himself (In which the black knight pieces are depicted as), his shirt has a black and white checkered design pattern, which is the same pattern that a chess board has. His house interiors also have many pieces of furniture that reflect this same pattern, such as the Modern furniture, his flooring, and chess piece furniture items themselves.
- When Roscoe makes an angry reaction the whites of his eyes turn yellow.
