Jacques(ジョッキー, Jokkī) is a smug bird villager that first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name in both languages comes from a Disk Jockey (aka, DJ) In addition, his name is French for Jack in English, similar to his French catchphrase.
AppearanceJacques is a bird villager. He has a full black body, and a yellow beak. His eyes are always half closed, and are a dull blue in color. He has brown eyebrows, as well as a brown goatee visible on his chin. On his head is a green knit cap. The character is likely meant to resemble renowned oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, who also wore a knit cap.
Jacques has a smug personality. This means he will appear kind and gentlemanly when in conversation with the player. On numerous occasions, he will flirt with the player and admire them. Jacques will occasionally talk about being into niche hobbies, like being a train fanatic or collecting plastic bottle caps. He will be very interested in fashion and will mention it often in conversations and letters.
His name and initial catchphrase, "zut alors" (meaning something along the lines of "oh darn" in french) seem to imply that he is French in nationality, or perhaps Canadian, as he dresses like a stereotypical Québécois lumberjack.
Jacques has K.K. House playing in his house.
