Rooney (マイク, Maiku?) is a cranky kangaroo villager in New Leaf. Along with Walt, he is one of the first male kangaroos in the series. The name Rooney is a play on the ending of his species English name, "kangaroo". His Japanese name, "Mike", may be a reference to the boxer Mike Tyson (as featured in Nintendo's Punch Out).

His catchphrase "Punches" is in reference to the "boxing" nature in which kangaroo jacks fight, and possibly the resulting Australian icon - "the boxing kangaroo".

Appearance

Rooney is a blue male kangaroo with red-brown hair and green eyes. He has black feet with three white claws on his three toes, and black and red hands/gloves. His chest, under his tail and the inside of his ears are bright yellow. The outside of his ears are light brown. He has eyebrows that are at an angle, making him look angry or annoyed, which matches his personality.

Personality

Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood, and are more difficult to befriend than other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Rooney will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Rooney will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.

House

Rooney's house has a strong sporty theme, and so, he is easily confused with a jock type villager. His cassette player plays K.K. Adventure.
