― Tom, New Leaf
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.

Appearance

Tom is a blue cat with a white-tipped tail and muzzle. His hands and feet are also tipped white. The insides of his ears are colored strawberry pink. He has slanted yellow eyes with round black pupils, and his eyelids, when visible, are colored a pale blue. In New Horizons, he has subtle dark purple colored irises. He has a large gray mouth shaped like a sideways 3, and the white on his arms and legs comes up in a sharp zigzag pattern. His initial shirt is the BB tee, and he carries the Flame Umbrella on rainy days.

Personality

Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than most other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Tom will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Tom will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.

House

Tom's home is very neat and oriental, containing furniture from the Exotic Series. It contrasts with his cranky personality. Upon obtaining a stereo, he will play K.K. Rally.

In New Horizons, Tom's home is notably different, and now features multiple Race Cars, along with a Tire Stack. His floor is Paintball Flooring. In this game, if he has a stereo, it will play K.K. Rock.

Pocket Camp

Tom's preferred theme is cool and he will primarily gift the player with wood when they fulfill his requests.
