Tom Nook, known in Japan as Tanukichi (たぬきち),[1] is a fictional character in the Animal Crossing series who operates the village store (or the Resident Services building in Animal Crossing: New Horizons). He first appeared in the Nintendo 64 game Dōbutsu no Mori, released in Europe and North America on the GameCube as Animal Crossing. Nook sells a house to the player at the beginning of each title in the series (with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Animal Crossing: New Horizons being an exception, as Nook sells the player a tent at the start of those games), giving a set mortgage for them to pay and offering to upgrade it after the mortgage is paid off. He has also made several appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series. Nintendo's Treehouse localization members Rich Amtower and Reiko Ninomiya have argued that, in spite of his perceived greed, he is a nice person due to taking the risk of hiring someone who is new to the town.[2]
