“New challenges! New people! We need adventure!”Tom (バンタム, Bantamu?, Bantam) is a cranky cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. His North American name is based on tomcats, another name for male cats. His name and appearance might also be a reference to the Tom and Jerry cartoons. He was absent in Wild World, but returned in City Folk and New Leaf. His Japanese name is a reference to Bantamweight, a weight division in boxing. He has the education hobby.
