Mott (リック, Rick) is a jock lion villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name is a reference to the 70's band Mott the Hoople, who later reformed under the name British Lions. His initial phrase is a play on the word "cage", which is usually what lions are kept in at zoos.
Mott wears reading glasses and a charming outfit, and so he resembles more of a sophisticated gentleman than an exercise-obsessed jock. His initial clothing is the pirate's coat.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.Mott has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sports and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but gets confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.
HouseHis house has a bathroom theme, with two wash basins, a bath tub, and two showers, from the same theme. He also has a gyroid. Mott plays Marine Song 2001 when given a stereo. In New Leaf, he has many items from the Sloppy Series.
