Bruce is a Cranky Deer in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. He is the only Cranky Deer the series. His English name may be derived from "bruise," a type of injury, which may reference the "tough" nature of Cranky villagers. His English name could also be a reference to the original Norwegian name of the goats in The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Bruse. His English catchphrase is also likely a reference to Three Billy Goats Gruff, "Gruff" being the name of another Cranky villager.

In New Horizons, Bruce has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.


Bruce is a blue deer with a large light blue facial marking, starting at his muzzle before forking into three stripes that reach the top of his head. He also has a light blue belly, which is mostly covered by his clothing. His antlers are smooth horns, like those seen on goat villagers, that are striped with medium and dark yellow. The insides of his ears are orange and he has dark blue hooves.
