Animal Crossing: New Horizons is full of characters who have a connection to ancient Japanese folklore and mythology.

Some characters just give a slight nod to their related folklore, while others are fully immersed. The relationships between specific Animal Crossing characters and villagers and Japanese mythology might not be immediately apparent, but once those connections are revealed, it helps to further contextualize their respective personalities and aesthetics.

The Animal Crossing series of games is full of iconic characters and villagers, each with their own unique personalities, traits, and visual preferences.

Spanning nearly the full spectrum of the animal kingdom, players in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can interact with a number of friendly (and not so friendly) characters, including the beloved Isabelle and enterprising businessman, Tom Nook.
