** Clay is a hamster who, as his name suggests, looks like a clay doll. As expected from these kinds of villagers, [[https://nookipedia.com/w/images/a/a2/Clay.png his design]] definitely puts him into the CreepyDoll category. Thankfully, as a Lazy villager he’s as friendly as they come.

* It gets worse. Gyroids are based upon [[http://didyouknowgaming.com/post/38165466317/animal-crossing Japanese clay figures that are buried with the dead]]. So, by extension, Coco could also easily be connected to these figures. This may also explain the choice to use K.K. Dirge in her house. This fact also contributes additional horror to other aspects of the game as well.

* In the original [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]] version the music that plays at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrEss6dcsc8 11:00 p.m.]] as well as the music that plays at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odZ-OV8JWNk&index=24 midnight]] can sound really spooky for such a lighthearted game like Animal Crossing. 1 AM is fairly minimalist, but still similarly unsettling.

*** Heck, even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A21JFshMtF8 the live version]] isn't all that much better. The ominous guitar strumming, particularly in place of banging at the end, as well as K.K.'s howls, contribute a very different but nonetheless creepy air to the song.

The ominous guitar strumming, particularly in place of banging at the end, as well as K.K.'s howls, contribute a very different but nonetheless creepy air to the song. But at least it's K.K. singing it, instead of low and disembodied creepy voice, and the dog's cute sounds cut the tension. It's something akin to a friend telling you a scary story.

* One of the possible conversations between "Grumpy" and "Peppy" villagers. It starts off innocent enough, but the conversation ends up saying "I keep an [insert random object here] under my pillow when I sleep" from the Peppy villager. In this Peppy villager's case, she says "I keep a knife under my pillow when I sleep". The Grumpy villager will have a look of shock and says she's nuts as the chat ends. Though just awkward randomness, it is very unsettling.

His default {{catchphrase}} is “rrr-owch.” Lucky's house seems to be based on Egyptian tombs. Not helping is the fact that he has K.K. Dirge playing in his house.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puj89z-MOzM K.K. Swing]] sounds like ordinary, relaxing classical music at first, albeit with a few off-kilter or strangely loud sounding notes... then towards the end it suddenly starts to sound as if it's going backwards before going back to normal like nothing happened. It gives the feeling of something rather sinister or creepy being concealed behind a normal, benign facade.



** The music at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdrjrVPAMvQ 2:00 a.m.]] also made many players jump because of how out-of-place it sounds compared to not only the rest of the late night music, but also the rest of the hourly music in the game. In contrast, the next two installments' equivalent only has this sort of tone in its ''Super Smash Bros.'' remix... but those games make up for it by doing this ''again'' (albeit to a lesser extent) with their 3 AM song (itself sandwiched between the calm 2 AM song and the incredibly minimalist 4 AM song), despite the songs for the previous few hours being more fitting.

Unlike the 4 AM theme, which is creepy because it's essentially NothingIsScarier in musical form, the instrumentation has some unsettling knocking in it ''and'' made many players jump at the beginning. It sounds very out of place between the songs that play at 11 PM and 1 AM, which are more sad-sounding like ''Wild World'' and ''City Folk''[='=]s 11 PM-2 AM music.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQLvrhUXwtE 5 AM]] music. After the unsettling 4 AM music, you're treated to what sounds like a deranged arrangement of the beautiful 8 PM music. Unless you have either the Early-Bird or Night-Owl ordinance, no one else is up. The music sounds distorted and has occasional pauses, with a tribal-sounding drum beat, comparable to the 12 AM theme's woodblock sounds, giving the feel of oncoming insanity.
* Coco, a rabbit with the Normal personality. How many people have seen her walking around with her back turned, go to talk to the new villager and get a load of...[[http://nookipedia.com/w/images/thumb/d/d8/Coco.png/200px-Coco.png this]]? No, her mouth is not open because she is shocked, she ''always'' looks like that. Her face was probably meant to look like a Gyroid, or more likely, a coconut, but it's still sort of a strange face to give a character. And guess what song is playing in her house? Yup, the aforementioned K.K. Dirge. However, her personality helps to soften the blow a bit.

** Although plenty of music in ''Animal Crossing'' is [[AwesomeMusic comfy, catchy and sets the tone perfectly]], at the same time, a lot of background themes in the series in general and the first installment in particular have sort of a surreal and minimalist feeling to them, lending the game with something like a sleazy atmosphere. It's no surprise that the series is ridden with "Tom Nook is a mafioso" theories when most of its gameplay consists of the player character moving to a strange and unfamiliar town, immediately having a massive debt thrust upon him, and then getting repeatedly scammed and taken advantage of by a conga line of bizarre characters, all to the tune of a few dissonant kazoos, drums and kotos clinging in the background...
