Oooh, imagine that, a flea sucking the carbs right out of me!
― Rudy, New Leaf

Rudy (チャス, Chasu?) is a jock cat villager that first appeared in New Leaf. His English name may refer to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, who has a red nose like Rudy. His initial phrase and his birthday support this possibility. His New Leaf picture quote is a reference to how cats land on their feet. He has the play hobby.


Rudy has a mostly maroon-red body, with white covering his face, paws, and the tip of his tail. The insides of his ears and his eyes are yellow. He has black pupils and a round red nose. He initially wears a red-grid tee in New Leaf, and a yellow simple parka in New Horizons.


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

Rudy 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, Rudy 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 Rudy.


In New Leaf, Rudy's house has a rather childish theme, which reflects his age and personality. His choice of furniture primarily consists of the Ranch Series such as the bed and bookcase along with a cactus. Certain items that help contribute to Rudy's childish-themed house include the Bowling Pins and the Race Car Track. On his Hi-Fi Stereo, he has The K. Funk playing and for his choice of flooring and wallpaper, he has the Steamboat Wallpaper and the Wooden Flooring.

Rudy's preferred theme is sporty. His profile says:

Rudy's voice rings as loud and clear as a bell! It's also like a bell in that he tends to repeat himself over and over and over and over and over again.
