"My name's Curly, so you can call me Curly, Hah hah!"

Curly (ハムカツ,Hamukatsu?, Ham Katsu) is a jockpigvillager 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.
Curly has a jock personality, and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Curly is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player for catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and uchi villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Curly.
