Tank (くるぶしKurubushi?) is a jockrhinovillager from the Animal Crossing series. His name may come from the sheer strength a rhino has. It may also be possible the name comes from a type of tank called a Rhino Tank. His name may also be a reference to his tank-top shirt, which is commonly used when exercising, matching his jock personality. His catchphrase, "kerPOW," reflects on the typical nature of a jock villager. He has the fitness hobby.
Tank is a light blue rhino with two white horns along his snout, as well as a green leaf on the back of his head, similar to Tangy, the peppy cat. He also has white hooves and dark blue inside his purple ears. His initial shirt is the No. 1 shirt which is red with a light blue number one, and goes with his jock personality.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Tank 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, Tank 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 Tank.
Tank has a house with a drum, a wooden bench, a small pond, a shirt, a maple bonsai, a bamboo wall, and a grassy floor. He does not have a stereo in his house at first, but if he obtains one, it will play K.K. Lament, or K.K. Groove if in Happy Home Designer or Happy Home Paradise. His interior theme remains fairly consistent throughout the games he appears in, sticking to a botanical Japanese garden theme, the only major differences being the furniture and wallpapers he uses.
When Tank is bored, he throws rings in the air and catches them with his horn. One time, he stacked eight rings on his horn! But his arms are so short, he can't take them off! He has to crawl in the water and wait until they float off.
