Tad returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome Amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.
Tad is a green frog. His name most likely comes from the word "tadpole", the name given to a young frog. His initial clothing is the One-Ball Shirt. He has a similar look to Emerald the frog.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Tad has a jock personality, and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as egotistical and dense. As a jock villager, Tad is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player for catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and uchi villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Tad.
Tad's house has a loosely aquatic theme, with a paddling pool, goldfish, and the entire froggy set. Tad also has various gyroids and two elephant slides. These slides, combined with the playroom wall, reinforce impressions that Tad is very young, hence the name. This implication, however, is not mentioned in-game. If he has a stereo it will play K.K. Lullaby.
