Tank (くるぶし,Kurubushi?) is a jockrhinovillager from the Animal Crossing series. As a jock villager, he will appear competitive and fitness-obsessed. However, despite these obsessions, he appears hospitable towards the player, but may cause arguments with other villagers, usually over their fitness. His name may come from the sheer strength a rhino has. It may also be possible the name comes from a type of tank called a Rhino Tank. His name may also be a reference to his tank-top shirt, which is commonly used when exercising, matching his jock personality. His catchphrase, "kerPOW," reflects on the typical nature of a jock villager.
Tank is a light blue rhino with two white horns along his snout, as well as a green leaf on the back of his head, similar to Tangy, the peppy cat. He also has white hooves and dark blue inside his purple ears. His initial shirt is the No. 1 shirt which is red with a light blue number one, and goes with his jock personality.
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, Tank 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. Tank 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.
Tank has a house with a drum, a wooden bench, a small pond, a shirt, a maple bonsai, a bamboo wall, and a grassy floor. He does not have a stereo in his house at first, but if he obtains one, it will play K.K. Lament.
