Wart Jr. Gallery

I've got my eye on you.
― Picture quote, Wild World

Sigh. I've gotta stop sighing like this... It only gets me down deeper in the dumps, grr-ribbit.
― Wart Jr., City Folk

Wart Jr. (サム, Samu?, Sam) is a cranky frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. His English name relates to the myth that frogs, or commonly toads, have warts and can pass them on through contact. His name may also be a reference to Wart, a frog character in the Mario series, which is referenced to throughout the Animal Crossing franchise.

His initial phrase, "grr-ribbit," is a combination of the growling sound and the sound a frog makes, which some people do when angered like most cranky people are. His picture quote in Wild World is very similar to that of another villager, Roscoe.

He has the education hobby.


Wart Jr. in Animal Crossing

Wart Jr. is a burnt amber brown frog with tiny round spots that resemble warts, with one in the place of a nose. His laid-back eyes are bumped up into a froggy appearance, and he has a strawberry pink smile if his mouth is opened. His initial outfit is the Static Shirt in Animal Forest and Animal Crossing, and the Sharp Outfit in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf.


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. 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, Wart Jr. 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.


In Animal Forest and Animal Forest+, Wart Jr.'s house has an Outside Japanese style, there are four plants from the Bonsai Set, an Exotic Bench, a tub, a frog pole, a pond, a rustoid and a Reel-to-Reel that plays K.K. Folk.

In New Leaf, Wart Jr.'s house includes furniture from the Exotic Series, including the bench, the table, and the chest. He also owns four Bonsai plants, an Outdoor Bath, an Incense Burner, and a Tootoid. If he gains a stereo, it will play To the Edge. His wallpaper is the Plaster Wall, and his flooring is the Sandlot.
