“You think you're the strongest person in town? Are you serious?! Well, I guess... I mean...”
― Scoot, New Leaf
Scoot (マモル,Mamoru?) is a jockduckvillager in the Animal Crossing series. He appeared in Animal Crossing, was absent in Wild World, and reappeared in City Folk. His name may relate to the fact he wears a helmet, like the rider of a scooter, and his initial catchphrase is a possible reference to how young children imitate the sounds of motorcycles and/or scooters. He has the fitness hobby.
Scoot is a green duck with a yellow bill and yellow feet. His eyes show determination, and he has pink cheeks.
At first, Scoot may appear to have an undergarment on his head, but when looked at from the back, the numbers 1-3 (1-5 in New Horizons) show that it's a swim cap, with the numbers being typical for school age athletes to represent their class. He wears a frog shirt as his initial clothes. In Animal Forest, his eyes are larger and his feathers are a lighter shade of green.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Scoot has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Scoot 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 Scoot.
In Animal Crossing, Scoot's house is very avant-garde. The home's walls are covered by cabin wallpaper, and the floors are covered by the shanty mat flooring. In the upper left hand corner of his home, he has four fish: a Crucian Carp, a Pond Smelt, a Piranha, and a Small Bass. After these four fish come two different machines that dispense soda under two names: the pop machine and the soda machine. In both lower corners, there are two gyroids; the two gyroids are of the same type, the Lamentoid. On the two sides there are two corn plants. In the center, there is a cabin chair, and to its left, there is a white boombox playing K.K. Reggae. In City Folk, he has an Oombloid and listens to Marine Song 2001. In Animal Forest, his stereo plays K.K. Calypso.
Scoot is actually wearing a Japanese swimming cap, although it was mistaken for a scooter helmet by the localization team. It has 1-2 written on the back, showing him being in the second class of 1st grade, or a first year high school student, given by how the Japanese grade system works, and how it is organized in a hallway at a Japanese school. This is supported by the indoor pool theme of his house. Given that he's in 1st grade or a first year high school student, this would make him 6 or 7, or 15 or 16 years old in human years.
