— Picture quote, Wild World
Moe (ジンペイ, Jinpei?) is a lazy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name possibly comes from the sound a cat often makes in Chinese, "Miāo," or "Māo," (喵, 猫) meaning cat, or after the rare breed of cat (the Egyptian Mau) depending on the pronunciation of his name. It could also possibly refer to the type of anime/anime character "moe". His catchphrase, myawn, is a combination of the sound a cat makes, meow, and yawning, which reflects his lazy personality. His Japanese name, Jinpei, is a common name in Japan.



Moe's assigned artwork in Animal Forest e+.

Moe is a dark blue cat with light blue swirling stripes on several areas of his body. Moe has a pudge-like nose and forgiving, half-opened eyes with a yellow back; his pupils are vertical, thin, and black. His ears are held straight and are pink on the inside. He has a blue striped tail, arms, and legs with white, sock-looking marks on his paws and feet. His muzzle is also white. In Animal Forest e+, Moe initially wears the Fish Bone Shirt. In Wild World and City Folk, Moe initially wears the BB shirt. His looks are extremely identical to another cat villager, Tom. He is also similar to a cranky wolf, Lobo.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.

As a lazy villager, Moe will be easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he shares an interest in food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food (fishing). He will get along well with normal and peppy villagers. He may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, who do not understand the reason behind the lazy lifestyle choice. He sometimes does not get along with cranky villagers. Cranky villagers will get angry when talking to Moe and start to yell at him. He gets offended very easily, and will get really upset.


In Animal Forest e+, Moe has the same furniture styling as Bubbles the hippo does, with the only differences being that the carpet is the Classroom Floor and the wallpaper is the Green Wall.

Both in Wild World and City Folk, Moe has part of a classroom theme in his house. Moe's house has the green wall and the music room floor. Originally, his house contains a Blue bed, a kiddie dresser, an anatomical model, a green table, a dice stereo, a vision tester, model skeleton, and a stadiometer. His Dice Stereo plays K.K. Ragtime.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Moe's house resembles a hospital, since he has some anatomical models, as well as a Stripe Bed behind a curtain. He also has a skeleton, and a Stripe Sofa. His CD Player plays K.K. Ragtime, and he has the Blue Wall, and Music Room Floor.
