― Sprocket, New Horizons

Sprocket (ヘルツ, Herutsu?, Hertz) is a jock ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name is the same as the name of a machine part, referencing his mechanic/robotic appearance. He is one of the few villagers that is technically not an animal, along with Ribbot, Del, Coco, Stitches, Cephalobot, and others.

Before his appearance in the data for Happy Home Designer, Sprocket was exclusive to the GameCube games.

Sprocket returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.

He has the music hobby.


Sprocket from Animal Crossing

Sprocket is a green ostrich that resembles a robot. His head and neck have visible screws and panels, as well as a reflective surface. His body is a blue-gray color and does not have a mechanical appearance; however, the tips of his wings and tail are encased in metal. His legs are orange with darker-orange stripes. He has droopy blue eyes that appear to have lights inside of them and maintain their glow in darker lighting and during the night. His beak is a copper color and has a ridge running across the top, suggesting metal plating. In New Horizons, his head has an orange "04" printed on the back. In every game prior to New Horizons, his initial shirt was the No. 67 Shirt, but this changed to an orange Jumper Work Suit.


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

Sprocket 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, Sprocket 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 Sprocket.


In Animal Crossing, Sprocket's house contains many items from the Robo Series, which connects to his appearance. If Sprocket is given a stereo, it will play K.K. Technopop.

In New Horizons, Sprocket has a variety of musical instruments in his house. Most of said instruments are electronic and both his floor and wallpaper have a high tech theme, likely to fit his theme as a robot. At the back of his house, from left to right, he has an electric guitar, amp, drum set, effects rack, another amp, an electric bass, and a pedal board. In the middle of his house, there's a silver mic and DJ's turntable that plays K.K. Metal. For wallpaper, he uses the Future-Tech Wall, and for flooring, he uses the Circuit-Board Flooring.
