Timmy Nook and Tommy Nook, also known as the Nooklings, are twin tanuki characters in the Animal Crossing series.

Although Timmy and Tommy are frequently referred to as Tom Nook's nephews, Animal Crossing: Wild World establishes that they are not related to him by blood. In later games, villagers report that Tom Nook had found the Nooklings as orphans and adopted them.[1]


As with the fandom as a whole, fluff and gen fanworks are common, often featuring the Nooks as a happy family. The family focus is also popular in Tom Nook/Redd works.

Timmy and Tommy also somewhat commonly appear in sexually explicit fanworks, usually for kink or shock purposes.[2][3] This is often incest with each other or Tom Nook. There is some debate as to whether the two should be considered underage.
