Curly (ハムカツ Hamukatsu?, Ham Katsu) is a jock pig villager from the Animal Crossing series. His name comes from his curly tail. It is also possible his name is a reference to Jerome Lester Horwitz, a.k.a. Curly Howard, of the comedian trio "The Three Stooges", evidenced by his bald head (shared with most other pigs) and his initial catchprase "nyoink," which could a portmanteau of Curly's "nyuk nyuk nyuk" catchphrase and "oink", the onomatopoeia for a pig's snort. His Japanese name is a reference to a budget-friendly version of tonkatsu that uses ham instead of pork.
Curly is a pink pig with reddish pink cheeks. The inside of his ears are dark blue and he has a curly tail, which may or may not be a reference to his name. He has light pink hooves, and initially wears the Green Bar shirt when he first moves into the player's town. He also has a pink nose with his nostrils sticking out like all of the pigs in the Animal Crossing series. His eyes are wide open and without any certain color.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Curly has a jock personality, which means he enjoys working out and talking about fitness. He will appear friendly and hospitable towards the player, he will appear open and excitable to all personalities. He is quite competitive, often challenging the player to games such as hide-and-seek. Being a jock villager, he will spend most of the day outside, and he will continually give you advice on various things around town. He also will frequently be carrying a fishing pole, net, or shovel to showcase some of his hobbies as a jock villager. If Curly gets furious, he will call the player scrawny.
