** K.K., who is pretty much the [[OnlySaneMan only completely decent person on the island]] who is utterly horrified at what is happening but is powerless to stop it. [[TearJerker It is implied that he travels around the island playing music for the children as a way of comforting them, it being the only thing he can do for them.]] Billy even promises himself that if he manages to escape, he'll come back for K.K. ([[WhatHappenedToTheMouse it's never stated whether or not he does]], but presumably [[spoiler:he was rescued along with the other inhabitants of the island]]).
* JustForFun/XMeetsY:
** ''Animal Crossing'' meets ''Franchise/SilentHill''. [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] probably [[http://www.fullyramblomatic.com/reviews/animalcrossing.htm did it first]], but this one actually did it to ''[[UpToEleven even more disturbing levels]]''.
** ''Animal Crossing'' meets ''Film/TheIsland''.
** Let's see... town with a dark secret, a strange bunch of animals [[spoiler:[[WasOnceAMan who were once normal people]]]], ominous artifacts that play with your mind [[spoiler:and slowly mutate people]], a mob that bursts into your house, [[spoiler:beats you, rips one of your eyes out]] and then acts like nothing happened, a twisted psycho [[spoiler:who is a borderline [[HumanoidAbomination humanoid abomination]]]]... yep, that's what happens when ''Animal Crossing'' meets [[Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth The Shadow Over Innsmouth]]... also H.P. Lovecraft in general.
** ''Animal Crossing'' meets ''Lord of the Flies'', in Tom Nook's own words.
*** Turned UpToEleven, apparently.
** Maybe some ''Island of Doctor Moreau'', for good measure?
** It's a RunningGag on this wiki and others that ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' is just like ''Series/ThePrisoner'', but this version of the main character (Billy) shares Number Six's attitude about the second most important person not telling him enough, the most important person never showing up or speaking to him, and not being able to escape from town.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: About the games themselves. Here, most of the characters are [[spoiler:living in fear of Penny]], and Tom Nook ''seems'' to be interpreted as a [[ManipulativeBastard bastard that won't let Billy leave]], but his ulterior motive [[spoiler:was that he was trying to ''help Billy escape'']].
** Even [[spoiler:the Gyroids]] get looked at from a different point of view. In the games, [[spoiler:they're innocent if weird statues of unknown origin that move and make funny noises.]] Here, [[spoiler:they're not so innocent weird statues of unknown origin that mutate those exposed for them for too long (as well as driving them temporarily insane)... that move and make funny noises.]]



* HilariousInHindsight: See that rabbit on the cover who's zoomed in on in the first update? That happens to be [[Roleplay/RubyQuest Ruby]].

* TheWoobie: [[spoiler: Tom Nook]] probably counts, towards the last few chapters and after TheReveal.
** Also Billy, who's pretty much trapped, constantly fails to find an escape, and has gone through several sleepless nights.
** Not to mention K.K., who is pretty much the [[OnlySaneMan only completely decent person on the island]] who is utterly horrified at what is happening but is powerless to stop it. [[TearJerker It is implied that he travels around the island playing music for the children as a way of comforting them, it being the only thing he can do for them.]] Billy even promises himself that if he manages to escape, he'll come back for K.K.

Added DiffLines:

** SuicidalOverconfidence: it could have been a case of this, since [[spoiler:she ''is'' able to rip apart someone with her bare hands]]. Too bad [[spoiler:Billy [[ShutUpHannibal took the initiative]] via UnstoppableRage]].

** When the Animal Crossing villager was announced for ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Wii U/3DS'', he quickly gained a [[MemeticMolester memetic]] [[AxCrazy reputation]] that wouldn't be out of place in this story.

* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler:Penny.]] She does have a pretty tragic FreudianExcuse where it's implied [[spoiler: her terminal cancer caused her to go completely insane when she crossed.]] Still, it's hard to overlook the fact that [[spoiler: ''she harvests organs and body parts from innocent children.'']]

** Good luck playing the game ever again... This troper gets shivers just from playing the Animal Crossing stage in Super Smash Bros Brawl.
