* The ''Animal Crossing'' series received Villager as its representative in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''!
** Just as awesome, Villager and Isabelle appear as DLC for ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'', along with an Animal Crossing themed track with [=NPCs=] and villagers cheering on the sidelines, in the polished HD graphics that [=MK8=] is known for.
* Whenever you pay up your home loan or buy/find something very rare. ''Especially'' if it's a [[LastLousyPoint Coelacanth]].
** Your character even does his/her own HappyDance after paying up the loan or earning a new badge.
* Catching a bee is a horrendously difficult task. It's INCREDIBLY satisfying to pull it off. It's also quite difficult to catch a tarantula or scorpion, as they are rare spawns, and they move much faster than bees. ''Unlike'' bees, they will incapacitate you if you fail, but it's satisfying if you succeed.
* In the original, catching a banded dragonfly is just as, if not more, difficult than catching a bee. Catching one is incredibly awesome.
* The fortune for the [[VideoGame/FZero Blue Falcon]] in ''New Leaf'' that reads, "When all else fails, never forget to show them your moves."
* When you first move into town in ''New Leaf''. There are barely any villagers, Nookling Junction barely has any room to walk around inside, almost all the stores downtown are abandoned and boarded up. Then you came along, downtown eventually getting tons of new stores, a salon, a nightclub (where K.K Slider [=MCs=] nightly), Nookling Junction becoming an upscale department store called T&T Emporium, new stuff built like a lighthouse, a coffee shop, police station, cozy bridges, a bigger museum and redone town hall. Yeah, you changed a dull little burg into a bigger better place to enjoy. Aside from that, your character just being a good friend to the animals and planting trees and watering flowers. In other words, '''you''' are a moment of awesome (unless you play just to be a jerk) to the animals every time you play.
** The game implies that the economy of the town was so bad, they had to cut the Reset Surveillance Center from its budget. This means that Resetti can no longer visit other players and talk them out of SaveScumming (while giving his usual tantrums). Only you have the power to restore the center, and Resetti will be grateful if you do.
* When you get a favorite villager in your town. It's already awesome when you convince them to move in from the campsite or via an amiibo card, but when the game ''randomly assigns'' said villager to fill a gap in your town, it's the best feeling and it feels like the game favors you as a player.
* One for Isabelle. In ''Happy Home Designer,'' a conversation with Digby mentions that while his sister may be a bit of a silly puppy at times, she apparently has engineering degrees from ''19 different universities.'' How on Earth is ''SHE'' not the mayor?!?
* Thanks to the new November update for ''New Leaf'', players can now send their favorite villagers to their town through amiibo cards. However, should you use an amiibo figure for ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', you can actually meet Epona, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Wolf Link]], [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Medli]], or even Ganon (in pig form) and ''have them move in as villagers''. That's right, now ''you'' can be next door neighbors with the Great King of Evil himself!
* One thing in the ''Welcome Toys/{{amiibo}}'' update that got unanimous praise: ''the ability to evict villagers you don't like''! No more having TheScrappy of your town taking up spots for villagers you really want in your town!
* Catching a bee, especially in the [=GameCube=] version. Doubly so if you do it without getting stung. Even better, Blathers gives a genuinely interesting piece of information about them should you choose to donate it. In the [=GameCube=] version, he tells you that [[spoiler:when invaded by a wasp, the bees will surround it and begin vibrating, creating a deadly heat cocoon of up to 120 degrees, just 2 degrees below the bees' heat threshold]].
* In the ''Welcome amiibo'' update, the ability to destroy your town has been updated. Now, instead of just demolishing the town and starting completely new, you can sell your town to Tom Nook. While this whole situation is ripe with “Raccoon Mafia” jokes, there’s a bit of delicious irony here: For once in the entire series, Tom Nook owes YOU millions of bells instead of the other way around.
