— Tom, Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Tom (バンタム, Bantamu?) is a cranky cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. 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.


Tom is a blue cat with a white-tipped tail and muzzle. His hands and feet are also tipped white. He looks similar to Moe. His ears are straight and blue with a strawberry pink in the center of them. His appearance may be inspired by Tom from the Tom and Jerry cartoons, as Tom looks quite similar to the Tom from the cartoons. He carries the Flame Umbrella.


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.


Tom's home is very neat and oriental, containing furniture from the Exotic Series. It contrasts with his cranky personality. Upon obtaining a stereo, he will play K.K. Rally.
