There are plenty of Animal Crossing villagers that we love, but then there are also the ones that we really can’t gel with. It’s all subjective, and whatever villager I may like, you may dislike, and vice versa.
But here are my choices for the worst Animal Crossing villagers by species.
Alligator – Boots
I had Boots on my island before, and he was just annoying. I thought I’d like him due to his simple appearance, but I just couldn’t gel with him. I cheered when he wanted to leave the island.
Anteater – Olaf
I’m not huge on the anteaters anyway, but Olaf reminds me of that one character from the Lemony Snicket series by name only, and therefore I just can’t. Plus he looks so angry he probably won’t enjoy Laranjeira anyway.
Bear – Chow
It’s scary. Please take it away.
Bird – Jitters
This poor bird looks how I felt when I was at my call centre job and chugging cups of vanilla flavoured coffee like there was no tomorrow.
Bull – Coach
I’m not huge on the facial hair aspect on villagers, but it does suit Coach with his aesthetic, I won’t lie. But it’s just not one that I’d have on my island.
Cat – Tabby
I like most of the cat villagers, but poor Tabby looks like she has issues, man. Poor thing. I think it’s the teeth. She has the same problem that Moe does in that regard – a weird mouth.
Chicken – Knox
I don’t particularly like the animals wearing armour or having attachments that make them look like it’s a part of their body, and Knox is very much the prime example here.
Cow – Naomi
The cows tend to be pretty plain, but Naomi is the only one that looks really unique but strange at the same time.
Cub – Barold
Again, I don’t like the facial hair or the glasses-looking situation. He’s one of the only cub villagers that I just don’t like.
Deer – Deirdre
It’s a stretch because of the amount of good deer villagers. But Deirdre, that lipstick? Oh honey, no. You would have been as lovely as Fauna otherwise!
Dog – Marcel
I have a dislike for mimes. I think the worst part isn’t the face, it’s the body, which is green, for some reason. If Marcel had a black body, I still wouldn’t have liked him that much, but it would have been a lot less jarring.
Duck – Freckles
Freckles would be very endearing, if it wasn’t for the wide-set eyes. That kinda creeps me out a little, not gonna lie.
Eagle – Amelia
I like the eagles, but Amelia looks like she’s stuck her face too close to the sun. Get some aloe vera on that shit, honey!
Elephant – Paolo
That smile doesn’t belong on the side of your face. Please move it, then we’ll talk.
Such a lovely pink colour though, a shame.
Frog – Jambette
Euw those lips. Girl you don’t need lip injections! She looks like she’s been on Drag Race and then got called up for the All-Stars variant, so she had to get lip injections as a ‘glow-up’.
Goat – Velma
Velma kinda reminds me of a guy that was a friend of some folks from college. Seriously, she does look like him. The goats aren’t great anyway, but I just can’t with Velma.
Gorilla – Violet
I don’t like the gorillas, but Violet takes it a step further. I don’t like the lips, they look like facial hair.
Hamster – Rodney
Whenever I see him on a Mystery Tour I run the fuck away.
Hippo – Harry
Harry appears on every Mystery Tour that I do, and when you’re looking for certain villagers, that’s one Nook Miles Ticket wasted. I got trashed for disliking him because he got pissy about the hate.
Horse – Victoria
I just don’t like the racing gear, okay? It detracts from the rest of her.
Kangaroo – Sylvia
Why does she look like an emo reject? Like girl this ain’t 2006! It’s just the hair. Get rid of the hair, then we’ll talk.
Koala – Alice
She’s just not my cup of tea. I like the koalas, but Alice is a bit of a miss for me. I can see that she’s endearing in her own way, but Alice is the least memorable of the bunch.
Lion – Leopold
I think the colours clash too horribly, but then again, I don’t like any of the lion villagers. I tend to get strange vibes from him, like he’s one of those intellectual-looking anime characters that is secretly completely twisted and evil.
Monkey – Tammi
The only monkey I like is Deli. The others creep me out. So have Tammi, who was picked at random for this entry.
Mouse – Moose
I really don’t like villagers with prominent hair-like features (see Barold). Moose reminds me of that one Maths teacher I used to have with dark hair and ginger sideburns.
Octopus – Zucker
The only thing I dislike about Zucker is that I found him three times on two separate villager hunts. Considering the other options for this category were Marina and Octavian, sorry Zucker!
Ostrich – Phil
I really like the ostriches, so sorry Phil! You’re just the least liked of them.
Penguin – Puck
Again, the penguins I really like. I’m not a fan of head-gear or stuff like that on villagers. I love the pink, I just wish that it was more visible.
Pig – Curly
The main thing I dislike about Curly is that he shares Connor’s birthday (July 26th), so I can’t have his birthday twin on my island because it’s…this thing.
Rabbit – Tiffany
She just straight-up looks like someone that I’d find on West Street on a Saturday night. Nope. Even her name makes her sound like that kind of worker.
Rhino – Rhonda
I’m not huge on a lot of the rhinos, but Rhonda would definitely go well with the wannabe emo Sylvia.
I have nothing against the emo culture, but still…not a good look for Rhonda.
Sheep – Wendy
Wendy annoyed the living crap out of me when she was on my island. I love the colours and whatnot, but with Twiggy being another peppy villager, Wendy looked like a try-hard. And it took all day to get her off my island when someone else had Willow in boxes.
I really wanted Willow.
Squirrel – Sheldon
I like the squirrels, Sheldon just looks goofier than the rest. It was a hard toss-up between Sheldon and Ricky, but Sheldon lost the coin-flip.
Tiger – Tybalt
I dunno, just don’t feel any of the tigers. Sorry Tybalt.
Wolf – Dobie
I don’t actually dislike any of the wolf villagers, but Dobie is kinda the one I’d be less inclined to choose to come to my island. Although if I had an entire wolf village, I wouldn’t be mad with him in the slightest.
