“Animal Crossing” refers to the social simulation video game series published and developed by Nintendo. The series was conceptualized and created by Hisashi Nogami and Katsuya Eguchi. 

In this game, the player character is a human who resides in a village inhabited by various anthropomorphic animals and can do multiple activities like fishing, fossil hunting, and bug catching. 

The series is notable for its open-ended gameplay and the use of the video game console’s internal clock and calendar to simulate the actual passage of time. 

If these have excited you, wait until you read this article, where we will provide the ranking of the villagers and the “ACNH” villager tier list. Let us get to it. 

Top 10 Popular ‘Animal Crossing’ Villagers


Personality: Lazy

Species: Deer

Beau is the first to make the cut in our top 10 famous “Animal Crossing” villagers. His simple and cute deer design goes well with his personality. He has a serene expression that fits his lazy disposition. 


Personality: Normal

Species: Squirrel

Ione is unique for an ordinary villager. She is an average squirrel villager who was added to “New Horizons” in late 2021. She is new, has a star-filled tail, and looks like a one-of-a-kind ordinary villager—no wonder she lands in our top 10. 


Personality: Snooty

Species: Cat 

Ankha’s design, name, and catchphrase are based on Egyptian culture, making this cat unique. The ancient Egyptians revered cats, and most “Animal Crossing” players also revere these animals. Worthy of this spot. 


Personality: Lazy

Species: Octopus

No, he is not the chief executive officer of Facebook, but in this game, Zucker has a takoyaki design that is a factor in his popularity. His laid-back and lazy nature goes well with his expression too. Many players who like to invite food-themed villagers include Zucker in their “Dreamies” lists. 


Personality: Snooty

Species: Bear

Sparkly bear Judy is also in our top 10. As one of the new villagers added when “New Horizons” was released, Judy has always been quite popular among players and fans. Her colorful design and sparkly details make her look spectacular.


Personality: Lazy

Species: Rabbit

Newcomer Sasha is also on our list. He seems to be a blonde rabbit. His character design, particularly his eyelashes and sparkly eyes, has won the hearts of many game players. Nintendo only recently added him during the November 2021 2.0 update, which is also relatively new. 


Personality: Lazy

Species: Goat

Lazy villagers seem pretty popular among many “Animal Crossing” fans. Sherb’s chill expression (usually), cute goat character design, and lazy personality work well together. Enjoy this spot, Sherb!


Personality: Peppy

Species: Deer

Another deer from our list is Shini. From her Hikimayu eyebrows to her red horns, she has the most unique designs compared to the rest of the other deer villagers. Like Ione and Shino, along with the other villagers, she was only added to the game during the 2.0 update. 


Personality: Smug

Species: Squirrel

Also taking a spot in our top 10 is squirrel, Marshal. He has always been quite popular, and it seems like he will not be going away anytime soon from any “Animal Crossing” villager rankings. His tiny squirrel design is a high point for his charm.


Personality: Snug

Species: Cat 

Another cat on our list is Raymond. This smug cat is also famous. To be fair to Raymond, he has quite a distinctive design, living having heterochromia (since he also wears glasses) and dressing up as a business cat. With these, his popularity is understandable.

‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Villagers Tier List

The other part of this article is the “ACNH” villager tier list. 

“Animal Crossing: New Horizons” is a life simulation game launched in 2020. The players get to a deserted island where they need to gather resources and craft items.

“Animal Crossing: New Horizons” is compiled into various tiers. The animals are divided into tiers based on their popularity. For instance, animals in the S-Tier are super-popular.
