Cousteau (ハルマキ, Harumaki) is a jock, frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing, but was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World and made a reappearance in Animal Crossing: City Folk. As a jock villager, he will be interested in sport and fitness, as well as appear hospitable and competitive towards the player. His name is French, and some famous Frenchmen have had it as a second name. His name and personality together may refer to Jacques Cousteau. His initial quote, "oui oui", is French for "yes yes" (or agreement, so usually just "yes"). His species relates to the common French stereotype in which frogs are a type of food, specifically frog's legs. Like Cousteau, Gaston the rabbit and Marcel the dog are french.
He is a yellow frog with orange spots. He also has a black mustache on his face which goes with his French name and quote. His original shirt is a Vegetarian Shirt, which may relate to another French stereotype, that the French are professional cooks - although vegetarian restaurants are rare there, which makes it debatable. Another explanation for his shirt, could be the colors, which are the very same as the French flag.

As a jock villager, he will tend to appear slow-witted in conversation, as well as show interest in sports and fitness, often commenting on his muscles and physical fitness. He won't get along with lazy due to their lack of exercise. He also won't get along with snooty villagers by questioning them on their weight.
