Animal Crossing: New Horizons villagers

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons finally out, we’ve naturally been spending a lot of time with the residents of our village – the anthropomorphic chums helping us build a new home in a tropical paradise. Of course, familiarity breeds contempt, and occasionally our usually well-meaning animal buddies get on our nerves just a little bit. Here are our top 10 villagers ranked from infinitely lovable to downright irritating.

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons finally out, we’ve naturally been spending a lot of time with the residents of our village – the anthropomorphic chums helping us build a new home in a tropical paradise. Of course, familiarity breeds contempt, and occasionally our usually well-meaning animal buddies get on our nerves just a little bit. Here are our top 10 villagers ranked from infinitely lovable to downright irritating.

1. Cashmere

AC villager 1

A great hugger. Will give you the shirt off her back. A true friend.

2. Renee

AC villager 2

Looks like one of those Etsy sellers who charges lots. Also physically charges lots because she’s a rhino.

3. Hans

AC villager 3

Ever ready to help you move furniture. A very handy ape.

4. Chief

AC villager 4

Always does that sideways glance, even when there’s nothing off to the side to glance at.

5. Zucker

AC villager 5

Wheezes when he talks, but in an endearing way.

6. Mira

AC villager 6

Really into Marvel, but in a weird way. Not in a good way.

7. Wolfgang

AC villager 7

Thinks he’s too cool for school. Which makes him very cool indeed.

8. Kyle

AC villager 8

Not as cool as Wolfgang but he tries. Keep it up, Kyle.

9. Hopper

AC villager 9

Stays up all night then wonders why he’s grumpy. Go to sleep, Hopper, you daft penguin.

10. Carrie

AC villager 10

Doesn’t look where she’s going in the supermarket. Blocks the lanes with her trolley.
