The creepiest things we've found at Animal Crossing

Animal crossing He has built his legacy by offering players a glimpse into the joys of moving to strange new cities filled with strange new people, discovering hobbies, and getting out of overwhelming debt. The number of adjectives players use to describe Animal crossing the franchise is downright amazing but "relaxing", "charming" and "cute" generally top the list. However, after exploring the wide world of Animal crossing For long enough, many players have added "creepy" to the long descriptor list.

You have to really look for the creepy side of Animal crossing, but rest assured: it is there, waiting to be discovered. Sometimes you have to comb the farthest reaches of the games; In other cases, you stumble upon the dark side of the franchise by accident. Occasionally, you come across a friendly face that turns into something scary if you think about it too long.

Here are the scariest discoveries that players have made in the Animal crossing Serie.

K.K. Slider sometimes sneaks into some creepy songs

Animal crossing It's full of colorful characters, and few are as memorable as the game's resident musician, K.K. Slider This guitar strum canine appears in every game and produces some downright addictive songs, like Relaxing "Two days ago"and"Go K.K. Horse rider!However, K.K. Slider has produced a variety of songs in different genres, including some that will relax you to the core.

One of K.K. Slider's creepiest creations are "K.K. Dirge"(a song is a wailing song for the dead). While the standard version is absolutely terrifying, the Air control the version is twofold and sounds as if it is voiced by restless ghosts. The song feels out of place in Animal crossing and would fit better in a The legend of Zelda Dungeon full of Gidbos and ReDeads.

K.K. Slider's second creepiest song has to be "Hypno K.K." At first glance, the live version It sounds hauntingly beautiful rather than simply haunting. But then you hear the Interpretation of Air Check, which sounds like you're playing in reverse. Any song played backwards tends to make your hair stand on end, even if it is written by a cute Jack Russell.

Mr. Resetti's complaints can break the fourth wall if you're not careful

While Animal crossing try to simulate real life, can not escape its video game nature. If something goes wrong, you can press the reset button and try again. And that's where Mr. Resetti comes in, because his job is to remind you that you can't reset real life and you shouldn't reset Animal crossing either.

At first glance, Mr. Resetti is not creepy. He's just a mole with mood swings of seven on the Richter scale that can rant for days about the importance of saving. The players have grown used to their ramblings, but at first Animal crossingNintendo warned parents that their sudden appearances and behavior could be "disturbing to young children". However, her chill hides much deeper than scaring children.

When you stop to think about Mr. Resetti, he is essentially a character who can see beyond the veil of time. He knows every time you want a refill (and if you cheated to get it). The scariest thing of all is that if you press the reset button or forget to save too many times, Mr. Resetti takes out a Eternal Darkness: Requiem of Sanity Y fake the removal of your progress. He doesn't actually delete his save because he's a nice guy, but he still scares the uninitiated.

You can lose everything in a friend's city, including your face

If you touch the original Animal crossing and stick to your own city, you probably don't use the train often. You take it to your town, you stop by the station once in a while, and that's it. However, if you borrow a friend's GameCube savings card, you can visit a city stored on their card. If everything goes according to plan, you will be able to see some new places, greet new neighbors and maybe pack a souvenir. If not, then the chill begins.

If you restart the game While exploring your friend's city, you will not receive a visit from the always irritable Mr. Resetti. Instead, his fate is much worse: he will lose all his money, items, and facial features. Your character's face will sport the terrifying blank look of Animal crossingis famous gyroids. Some players have also reported the disappearance of one or more villagers after performing this trick.

While this "Easter egg" is creepy in itself, the rumored cause is much more terrifying. Many players believe that the face is a failsafe That avoids a game-breaking bug that would likely force them to rebuild their city from scratch. For players, few things are more terrifying than losing all their progress in a failure that saves them from eating.

Wasps, tarantulas and scorpions, OMG!

In the world of Animal crossingHe is mostly free to complete activities in his spare time. You're in no rush to dig holes, plant trees, and decorate your home. However, all of that changes when you encounter wasps, scorpions, and tarantulas.

While wasps ("bees" before New Horizons) Not as scary as ghosts, anyone who has come across these live attack drones will tell you that you DO NOT want to be on the bad side. You can easily avoid wasps in the real world, but in Animal crossing, you never know until it is too late if a tree has a nest. Once the wasp nest falls, you must run to the nearest house to escape its stinging anger.

Tarantulas Y scorpions They are a little more tolerable since they are normally docile, but if they see you with a network of insects, they will chase you with the revenge of a thousand suns. While a tarantula, scorpion, or wasp swarm only makes you pass out if they catch you (or in the case of wasps, they puff up your eyes and then make you pass out if they bite you again), the chase is enough to terrify the most players.

Fan made cities bring the horror genre to life

Animal crossing He has always emphasized letting players create their own little worlds. Many build cozy villages, but more than a few have chosen to build little nightmares. While the franchise doesn't offer as much open freedom as titles like Dreams or Great little planet, many creepy little towns have popped up in Animal crossing they use environmental storytelling to create Silent Hill– scarce experiences.

Two of Animal crossingthe most famous creepy user-made cities are Aika Village Y Hitokui of New sheet. While Aika uses symbolism, scary music, and carefully placed objects to tell a horrible story, Hitokui bets on the full value of the shock with obvious gore it gives players The massacre in Texas memories. Admittedly, some of the Japanese-only NPCs lower some of the creep factor, but these cities still bring out the creativity of the players.

Plus, as technology improved, so did tools players could use to customize their towns and villagers. Since players can now design more elaborate custom patternsMany have created blood splatters that bring the villager's creepy meme (aka killager) to life.

The truth is out there (and on television)

The passage of time is the soul of life Animal crossing franchise. In each game, the characters have schedules, so you can't exactly talk to Tom Nook whenever you want, even if you finally have the money you owe him. This system is also linked to the events of each game, including the terrifying ones that most will never see, because many people do not plan to play Animal crossing at three in the morning.

If you feel like turning on your 3DS in the middle of the night and playing Animal Crossing: New LeafYou cannot interact with many of the NPCs in the game. However, you can turn on your TV in-game and watch a UFO transmission at 3:33 a.m. Sunday or Monday. The stream consists of simple screens with a UFO and an alien, the big-headed, bug-eyed type, and its drag factor comes from its mystery. Who is transmitting the images? Why are they transmitting the images? Where do they transmit from? What is the meaning of 3:33 AM? Players still don't know, adding to the terror of the broadcast.

Gyroids All gyroids.

Gyroids they are creepy by their very nature. While they look like terracotta Cactusthyroids are really based on haniwa figures who were buried with the dead in Japan during the Kofun period. This little fact spawned the fan theory that Animal crossingGyros are semi-sensitive tombs that house the souls of the deceased, but some gyros are even creepier than that theory.

Most gyroids are only disturbing when you stop to think about them, but some stop pretending and scare players from the start. While many come in a variety of cute designs and make equally cute noises, tall buzzoids cry like enchanted internet modems. The monsters, meanwhile, scream like creepy, tearful babies. And then there are howloids and poltergoids, which sound weird and look even weirder due to their macabre faces.

Of course, gyroids have one more trick up their sleeve. They can appear anywhere. According to Shrunken dr in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the gyros in the LOL Club appeared "out of nowhere" on the club stage. At least they don't try to steal the attention of the club's artists.

Snowmen are alive, to their despair.

If you play Animal crossing During the winter, you will probably want to build a snowman. Few players can resist participating in such an iconic winter activity. On the other hand, snowmen jump to life Once completed. While the surprise of a talking snowman is creepy on its own, magic takes a turn for the weird if you ruin the Snowman's body.

Most people know how to make a snowman. You roll snowballs and stack them on top of each other, with the largest ball forming the base and the smallest ball forming the head. However, if you accidentally (or intentionally) screw up and place the largest ball on top, the snowman curse their existence eloquently belonging to an interpretation of Frankenstein directed by William Shakespeare.

Okay, so maybe his regrets are a little funny, but there's no denying the inherent fear factor that snowmen will gain sensitivity with the hat drop.

Some characters are just haunting

Animal crossing it is full of wild and colorful characters, all of which (with the exception of your avatar) are anthropomorphic animals. While this begs the obvious question of why the protagonist is the only human in the game, the most pressing question is why some characters go beyond mere anthropomorphism and cross paths into the realm of the creepy.

StitchesThe patchwork teddy bear with cross-shaped markings where your eyes should be is a prime example. The mere existence of Stitches raises numerous questions from Animal crossing life characteristics have neighbors. How do you see the stitches? Stitches is alive? The same questions apply to Coconut, which appears to be a crossed gyroid with a rabbit. Coco not only maintains a terribly blank expression, but her chill factor is marked until eleven because her house looks like a funeral pyre and is full of gyroids.

Coco and stitches are not Animal crossingHowever, only undead residents are possible, as Luck lurks throughout the franchise. Her slip factor depends on whether you read her heavily bandaged body and glowing eye as a sign that she is a mummy or is recovering from a horrible injury.

Finally there Pietro, the sheep clown. However, you may only find it creepy if you suffer from coulrophobia.

New Horizons fish are too realistic

Animal crossing released on the Nintendo GameCube (or Nintendo 64 if you live in Japan). The franchise has seen entries on all Nintendo consoles since then, and while its art style has remained constant, graphic fidelity has sometimes improved to take advantage of newer, stronger hardware. Although these improvements were small steps in past iterations, Animal Crossing: New Horizons features the best graphics in the franchise … that make your fish look absolutely terrifying.

Previously, fish in Animal crossing They were polygonal spots that were based on textures to convey their suspicious nature. In New Horizons, the fish are high poly models that seem much more realistic than the previous incarnations, but not real enough. Many of the game's saltwater fish look so true to life that they become unappealing, if not completely creepy, again.

Prominent examples of fish suffering from this effect are the moonfish – whose bulging eyes look at your soul – and he barreleye, which is already a creepy fish thanks to its translucent dome and its outstanding green eyes. Sometimes there is too much realism.

Horizons' new insect head models are complete

Decorating your house in Animal crossing It's half the fun, especially since you can fill your home with tons of colorful furniture. Of course, you can also decorate your digital home with creepy doodads and New Horizons includes some of the creepiest (unintended?) decorations in a Animal crossing game, if not a video game, period.

While wandering New Horizons, you may have encountered Grasshopper-head, Mantis-head and Wasp-headed models. These hideous and exploited representations of insect heads are mounted on walls like hunting trophies and allow you to see every micron of your nuggins in terrifying detail, from their chewing jaws to their segmented antennae. The insect heads weren't meant to be seen this close, but New Horizons provided the models, presenting them as art commissions for the special visitor, Movie. It's hard to decide what's scarier: the models themselves, or the fact that one of your island's frequent guests creates them as a hobby.
