Roscoe (シュバルツ, Schwartz) is a cranky, horse villager in the Animal Crossing Series. Roscoe is named after the award winning jockey, Roscoe Goose. His initial phrase, "nay", is the sound a horse makes, commonly spelled "neigh". The reason for it being spelled as "nay", which also means "no", may relate to his cranky personality type.
Roscoe is a black horse with a dark gray mane and his eyes are red with small black pupils. The whites of Roscoe's eyes turn yellow when he is angry. He initially wears the checkered shirt, which matches his initial house theme. He will sometimes buy patterns, and wear them, made by the player in Able Sisters.
Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
As a cranky villager, Roscoe will appear more mature compared to other male personality types. This will make him come off as rude and belittling when talking 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; not for competition, but for relaxing and peaceful reasons of calm and tranquility. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will appear rude behind their backs to. He will get along with snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a sweet villager, usually when being mean about something or someone. When he is sick, he will insult the illness.
Roscoe's house has a modern theme, featuring many items from the modern series. Roscoe also has two chess pieces in his room - the white knight and black knight. Knights in chess are represented by horses, a reflection of his species. K.K. Dirge plays in Roscoe's house. He also has a baby bear which, to some, seems out of character for a cranky villager. In Wild World, he has a plant, a petrol thing, a modern lamp and sofa, a white chess piece and a candle. if he has a stereo, it will play K.K. Dirge.
