"You gotta want it!"
— Picture quote, Wild World
Jay (ツバクロ, Tsubakuro?) is a jock bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. His English name is derived from the species of bird, although there are no jays that have red heads like the villager. His Japanese name, is the katakana writing of 燕 (Tsubakuro), which is the Japanese word for "Swallow" (the species of bird), it also can mean "comfort," or "enjoy." His catchphrase, "Heeeeeeyy," could be a reference to Fonzie from the show Happy Days. So far, Jay has been featured in every game. He appears on the album cover for King K.K.



Jay is a bird with blue, red, and white feathers and an orange beak and legs, and is similar to a swallow. His eyebrows are black. He initially wears the Six Ball Shirt.


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, Jay 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. Jay 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.


Jay's house has a classical theme, with K.K. Waltz playing on his gramaphone. In Animal Crossing, Jay has the Perfect painting in his house. As shown on the side, Jay likes to collect instruments. Jay's carpet is the classic carpet and his wallpaper is the ornate wallpaper.

Jay has a lot of violins and a piano. The perfect painting and the instruments are also left out in the later games.
