"My name's Curly, so you can call me Curly, Hah hah!"
— Curly introducing himself to the player, City Folk

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 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.
Jock villagers usually appear to have a large amount of energy and are very interested in sports and bodybuilding. They can also be egotistical at times and are somewhat dense. As a jock villager, Curly will be very interested in his hobby and will often ask to compete with the player to see who can catch a certain fish or bug the fastest. Curly will easily get along with peppy villagers, who share similar traits. However, he will find it difficult to converse with lazy, snooty, and cranky villagers, as he will often not understand the conversation.


Curly's house has a Green or Cabin Theme with many furniture with it, there is a Mini Croakoid and a Tape Deck that plays K.K. Reggae.
