"Hey, you smell that fresh air? Yeah, you should savor that for as long as possible. No, I mean it. I had tacos for lunch. So enjoy the fresh air while you can."Croque (タイシ, Taishi?) is a cranky frog villager who first appeared in New Leaf. His name is derived from the onomatopoeia "croak", which is a noise commonly thought to be made by a frog.
— Croque, Happy Home Designer
Croque's apperance is based on Daruma-Taishi or Bodhidharma, an Indian monk born the prince of a country in southern India in the mid-5th Century. Bodhidharma is also the inspiration for the traditional Daruma dolls in Japanese culture, represented in game as the Dharma Set.
Croque is a orange-red frog with a white face. He has a black moustache similar to Cousteau's. His eyes hold a constantly angry or irritated expression, matching his Cranky attitude. The tips of Croque's limbs are a mustard color, and he wears the Imperial Shirt.

Croque's house takes on the appearance of an autumnal forest, with some Japanese references. However, the forest aesthetic is somewhat ruined by the appearance of windows in his house. He has two Tall Clankoids by the entrance, and has all the furniture from the Zen Garden set which consist of: two Tall Lanterns, a bonfire, a deer scare, an outdoor bath, and three tree standees that are lined up at the back of the room. If he recieves a stereo through any means, it will be playing K.K. Jongara.
