Top 10 Most Underrated Animal Crossing Characters

These characters are hated by most Animal Crossing fans, but are they really as bad as you think?

The Top Ten

1 Coco

Why does everyone hate coco so much? Despite her 'Scary appearance', she's actually very sweet!

I think she is actually really cute!

Coco is a girl!

Coco is described as "one of the scariest villagers", because of his empty eye sockets and other odd features. I, however, think he is unique. I like how they gave Coco the interesting features of a gyroid. And anyway, if he's so creepy, what about Lucky? In my opinion, he's just as scary. And if you're gonna think any bunny is freaky, think of Bonnie.

2 Resetti the Mole

I honestly don't know why people hate Resetti so much. Sure, he shouts at you for resetting, but he teaches you a valuable lesson! - Princesslibby2006

Resetti is actually sort of a hero. Save data corruptions are a problem on most AC games. Resetting too much CAN corrupt your game. Resetti's purpose is to keep your game from corruption. Haters argue he scares children. Well, at one time didn't YOUR teacher scare you once? Anyway, he's hilarious when he tries to kill you.

He is actually one of my favorites. If you don't like him, then SAVE!

My favorite AC character! He's awesome, people! - ShyGuySwag

3 Tom Nook

Yet another character in this list that is hated for no reason. Okay, maybe the reason is that he gives you expensive loans to pay off, but he's actually not that bad once you get to know him. - Princesslibby2006

Believe it or not, this guy was featured in "Top 100 Best Video Game Villains." I am NOT kidding. Fans say he gives endless loans, but he's really a nice guy. He lets you take as long as you can to pay him back for your house, and in New Leaf, he gives you a free tent. Now ain't he generous? Plus, he gives you a job while you're penniless in order to pay back.
Oh, and didn't I forget about the fact that he adopted two orphaned tanukis to raise as his own?

I find a lot of the hate towards Tom Nook to be downright unfair. A lot of people love to portray him as a murderous, greedy mafia boss, who won't hesitate to kill you if you don't pay up. How the hell did they come up with that?

How do people come up with these stories about Tom Nook being part of the mafia and committing murders? That's just an unfair lie the haters make up to justify their hatred.

4 Redd

Redd is a money-crazy crook who sells fake art and one piece that is real. Why is he on this list? Because he makes the game interesting. He also tests your art trivia. When I see his tent, I don't think, "Arceus, it's him again." Rather, it's "I wonder if I'll get this one right! " Like Resetti, I think he's pretty funny how he tries to convince the player that each fake piece is real.

Instead of saying "Arceus, it's him again." I say "Time to look up the Animal Crossing Wiki."

He deserves it!

The way I get the real painting is using the guide at, it's the greatest animal crossing guide! - DapperPickle

5 Tabby

Tabby shared my birthday. How could I hate her?

Once again, this guy is thought as scary. His devilish smile seems creepy, but I think it's kind of cute, too.

Tabby is so cute in her own weird way! Plus, she AWESOME!

I was getting off the train on New Leaf
I saw the back of a cat, thinking we would be friends
Then I saw her face... - DapperPickle

6 Marshal

Marshal is a cute little grumpy demon I love him!

Squirrels are the best (Marshal, Sheldon, Nibbles, Hazel, etc.) - JayfeatherXStick

Ha ha ha. If ANYONE thinks Marshal's underrated, they must be living under a rock. - FennikenFan9

He is a creek creep, - Loosername

7 Rover

Rover is amazing. He befriends you in the train when you first arrive, and in City Folk, he's always there to talk to you on the phone. Such a nice guy!

Rover is a funny guy. Man, just imagine if he was real! You can't dislike him and still be human, that's impossible.

I always liked rover, even tough his eyes are creepy

8 Derwin

Derwin is 2 cool 4 skewl.


Meh he's not that interesting compared to my other villagers

9 Filbert
10 Pecan

The most nicest house goes to...

The Contenders

11 Digby

I love this character.

Digby rocks! By the way, I thought this a long time ago.

His sister gets most of the attention if I'm being honest.

Because he's cool.

12 Agent S
13 Cranston

I have Cranston in my town, and he is one of my favorite animal characters ever! (My favorite is Kid Cat, Who is also in that town) He is very friendly, also at the cafe, and - of course - He is never rude to you. Except, You have to admit, on Halloween he pranks you bAD

14 Mint

Mint is ny favorite villiager! Who could hate her?!

But I like Mint. She's a cute squirrel - Mariomaster63

15 Lolly
16 Biskit
17 Flurry

She is so sweet but a good hamster

18 Tangy

A living mutated tangerine that eats oranges and lemons(without counting she's a huge THICC sassy *sshole)and a quirky corrupted octopus that eats sugar(I know that means sugar in some language) and candy(If the name wasn't in english, I wouldn't say that he SUCKS *puns*)
Cannibalism is everywhere, guys, the next is Goldie eating Isabelle. - Loosername

My favorite <3
Why do people not like her? She’s funny, sweet, cute, and did I mention cute? I know somebody else who really likes her. I don’t care that she’s an orange and eats oranges, they can’t make special coding for each character. That would be way too time consuming.

19 Zipper T. Bunny

Zipper T. Bunny is obviously a character in a costume and he only comes around on Easter! Kind of like Jingles. Zipper T. Bunny just has a lot of personality. My personal theory is that Zipper T. Bunny is actually just Phyliss the cranky mailperson that works the post office at night and she's only doing it because it pays a lot of bells.

20 Guliver

Really like

21 Velma
22 Pashmina
23 Shari
24 Dizzy

I love Dizzy! He has the closest resemblance to a real elephant and is cute!

25 Gwen
26 Rizzo

Rizzo is the most underrated animal crossing character of all time. He's funny, (when I had him in my town, he once said the other villagers had ugly faces) he gave me bamboo, (that's personal though..) and he's A MOUSE WITH PURPLE HAIR WHATS NOT TO LOVE PEOPLE?

He's been in my town for 2 years and he's never leaving cause he's awesome.

27 Bones
28 Francine
29 Bettina
30 Meow

Only appear in Animal Forest. THEY CREEP ME THE DARK FOREST OUT (warriors Erin Hunter)

31 O'Hare
32 Gruff
33 Nan
34 Kidd
35 Chevre
36 Doc

Doc is my all-time favorite villager, I love him so much! I've had him since the beginning of my NL town as one of my starting villagers. He once wrote me a letter asking me to promise to never leave town because he had a nightmare that I left town forever. He still shows my neighbors my promise to him in a letter I replied to him lol.

37 Isabelle

Once I saw someone watching (prolly my cousin or my sis) a Youtube vide(that I was filled with random Nintendo characters (Link, Pikachu, a regular male Mii, and Isabelle) I started watching in the part where Pikachu electrocuted Link and the Mii, since Isabelle is friends with the Mii, her face got creepy and started holding two beehives and the bees stung Pikachu and Link(even though Link did not do anything)

38 Mitzi

She’s so adorable, especially when she smiles! :o

39 Dotty

I personally love dotty! She has an really adorable design and I love her peppy personality and her clothes! >_<
