* ScoldedForNotBuying: Crazy Redd is a rather eccentric figure in the black market, and he seems a bit miffed if you leave his shop without buying anything.

In order to pay off the debt on your house to the local shopkeeper/real estate agent (a tanuki named [[PunnyName Tom Nook]]), you'll have to scrounge up things to sell for the local currency, Bells. You can hunt insects, catch fish, gather fruit, dumpster-dive for old furniture, or sell the stuff you earn running errands for your neighbors. You can also put some of your hard-earned money towards buying new clothes, or furniture for your home. Keep in mind though, the world is kind of an "inconvenient" one: Your animal neighbors are either awake or asleep at certain times and shops open and close on a set schedule. Most bugs and fish can only be caught at certain times of the year and various events have time limits.

** Also in ''Welcome amiibo'', you can get a Wii U and a New Nintendo 3DS as furniture to play all new minigames. However, these can only be obtained by getting lucky with fortune cookies, which only 2 of a day can be bought and it costs Play Coins...That is, unless you scan the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' Villager amiibo, which allows you to purchase the Wii U and New Nintendo 3DS items from a van owned by Wisp.

''Animal Crossing'' is a simple but entertaining "life sim" game that takes place in a small town in the country. Amusingly enough, the game's player characters are the only humans in a town populated by eccentric PettingZooPeople. There are pelicans working at the post office, a pair of hedgehog sisters who run the tailor's shop, a verbose, bug-phobic owl who runs the museum, and a fox who acts as a shady traveling merchant. Your other, less permanent neighbors are likewise an eclectic assortment of other species, from dogs to cats, elephants to octopuses, and over thirty other species. Each of them having one of six (eight as of ''New Leaf'') varied personalities.

* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: The infants that kangaroo villagers have are generally not treated as actual characters. They're not named or even referred to in-dialogue. They are simply an extension of their mother and repeat the same movements as them. Despite this, a few of the villagers base households relate to them being mothers. For example, Sylvia has a crib in her room.

** Gracie. ShesAManInJapan. The fact that they changed his gender for the international release must mean something, most likely that people are just [[PinkGirlBlueBoy way too hung up over gender roles]]. Saharah also gets a gender change from being male in Japan (where he is known as Roland), but the character itself is pretty androgynous, the change may simply be a result of Saharah's long camel eyelashes.

** Tom Nook's IconicOutfit when working working in Nook 'n' Cranny has him wearing a blue waist apron with a leaf design (In Japanese releases of the first game, it was a Kanji symbol instead). He wears a longer and differently designed apron when working in Nookway. During the Lottery in the American version of the first game, he wears a long apron with an American flag-like design and a visor.
*** When Timmy and Tommy took over Tom Nook's role in New Leaf, they retained both of the same aprons for Nookling Junction and Super T&T, respectively.

* [[AgelessBirthdayEpisode Ageless Birthday]]: Many of the characters celebrate a birthday every year, but no reference is ever made to the characters' age. It doesn't help that the characters [[ComicBookTime never seem to age]].

** In ''New Leaf'' you can get the rice maker item to have ''chicken'' rice in it. You can have chicken villagers.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The original ''Animal Crossing'' games are dramatically different from future versions. Many features used in future games weren't implemented until the Japan-only ''Doubutsu no Mori e+'', the first games had acres, Blathers couldn't identify fossils (instead, you had to mail fossils to the museum's main branch and have them sent back identified the following day), several special characters didn't exist, you couldn't get photographs....

** In e+ onwards, one can also catch an octopus -- and yet a rare few potential neighbors are also octopi. There is also the birdcage item... which comes with a little songbird inside. To add to that is how one duck neighbor, at least in 2.x, actually has one of these birdcages in his house to start out with.

** As of ''City Folk'', a yellow bird perches on the bulletin board when there are messages you haven't read. In ''New Leaf'', it reappears and is replaced by an owl at night.

** In ''New Leaf'' Gulliver's rantings about other countries mention animals however sound more like non-anthropomorphic ones.
** The rice maker item in ''New Leaf'' can be edited to feature chicken rice despite the fact you can have chicken villagers.



** A few special characters enjoy eating animals suitable for their species, such as scallops or bugs.
** Villagers default houses occasionally reference their species. One duck villager frequently has water-themed houses, with his house in the first game literally just being a pool and sprinklers.



* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Most villagers only wear sleeveless shirts (though sheep instead wear scarves due to their wool). (Though a few, like Snake or the Sentai-inspired villagers, fall under FullyDressedCartoonAnimal instead)
