Genji (ゲンジ) is a rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing Series. He has a jock personality, which means he will appear competitive towards the player. His name could refer to two things. "Genji" means a "military geek" in Japanese, and "Genji" is also the titular character in The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, and is sometimes considered to be the world's first novel. His initial phrase, "otaku", means, in Japanese, someone with an obsessive personality, which reflects on the jock villagers' fitness and health obsession.
Genji is a snowy white rabbit with dark mahogany brown ears and pink cheeks. The brown from his ears go down to circle all the way around his head. He has squinted eyes and a constant frown. His paws, feet, and bunny tail are tipped chocolate brown while the rest is white except his ears. He also has tiny, round eyebrows that are brown. He initially wears the misty shirt- a green shirt that has white mist clouds on it. On rainy days, he carries a paper parasol.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Genji has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness regime. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when in deep, meaningful discussions. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers, by questioning their physical fitness and age, but he will get along with sweet villagers, but may, on the rare occasion, anger them. He likes clothes and will often ask for a certain shirt.
Genji's house is the style of a Zen Garden. He has the Sea View (wall) and the Shanty Mat (floor) to compliment the outdoors. He plays King K.K. on his Tape Deck and has a Hearth, a Tall Lantern, and some other pieces to complete his Zen theme.
