His North American name is based on tomcats, another name for male cats, his name might also be a reference to the Tom and Jerry cartoons. He was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World, but returned in Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His Japanese name is a reference to Bantamweight, a weight division in boxing.

Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
As a cranky villager, Tom will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace rather than competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy and normal villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with lazy and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone. Tom will also appear very sharp tongued, and will sometimes call the player a brat.
