Animal Crossing is PEOPLE! No, really! Theorists, this may be one of the most unexpected theories I've put out recently, but once you see it, you will never unsee it. I have gathered TONS of evidence that our player character is only SEEING the villagers of Animal Crossing as animals. They are not, in fact, ACTUAL talking, anthropomorphic animals. Have I said the word animals enough yet? Well get ready Loyal Theorists, I am about to blow your mind! Animals!

11:11 no, i could perfectly make out timmy saying "Thank you!" after selling something to him one time. if it's said too quickly, it may be misunderstood. the characters, when the text scrolls in, say the letters that are appearing. so, someone saying "Hi!", in sound, said "H i" quickly.

I actually came up with some things you could make theories with Matt pat in new horizions in the museum theres the strange lab room in the bug exhibit the block off in the fish exhibit and in the fossils exhibit the dinosaurs are linked to the animal crossing characters apparently! That's the most interesting one to me!

Hear me out: The player is actually in a coma. He is living his life in his brain but it doesn’t get everything right. He can’t touch anything hence why when you shake a tree it shakes but you never actually touch it. Also why all of the villagers basically say the same things. That or you’ve got superpowers

In the first animal crossing game, he also moved out and had gotten in debt but he did see people as animals before that. He could have been traumatized as a teen which lead to this disorder in the first place. Yes, I'm suggesting that they also have PTSD.

Just sayin, before people take this and start attacking otherkin, disorders need to harm the person or people around them. So just saying hey i got a cat soul or im a cat in a human body isnt enough for a diagnoses so leave otherkin tf alone aight? Cool chill aight love yall
Catnip Kittie5
Catnip Kittie5 10 dager siden
Also diagnoses in general need to be done by a professional. No normal person is equipped to diagnose someone so dont do that please thanks we dont have all the knowledge a professional does (this does not mean dont research to help your own care. It means dont diagnose yourself or others and act as if what you think is law)

What about the theory that the character died and this is their after life? Most of the evidence behind this is from the mother's letters, they are written in a strange way that makes it seem as though the character is dead.

The animals actually speak Animalese. Sometimes you can just say words in English but its just sounds fast. You also forgot to mention that Zipper, the Easter bunny, is in a suit and pretends to be excited when you're around him. He also exposes himself as being in a costume and then panicking afterwards. Even though if is a game full of furries, its just a peaceful game where you can design your island how you want it. 🙂

It’s like Goofy vs Pluto: both are dogs, one talks and wears clothes (and sometimes rushes people with a shield like Captain America) and the other wears a collar and is Mickey’s pet. Or... maybe Animal Crossing is a “Shutter Island” type situation?

This seems like mattpatts grasping a bit here. I mean once he starts to try and explain why the game has a character re-customisation mechanic and it’s in world perception, his point starts to seem really silly. I always figured the reason why there are actual animals in that world as well as bipedal people like animals was because of y’know, science. What I mean is that even humans have this comparison in regards to apes which as we all know is because of evolution and the fact we share a common ancestor. So I just assume owlsworth and that actual owl just shared a common ancestor. Seems a lot more plausible than Nintendo being this convoluted.

See, the only problem with this theory, is that if they are humans And Zipper (who was theorised as your characters father) Dressed as a bunny. Why would he do that if they were humans, yes, your father COULD also have this mental problem. Is that likely?

That or... ya know... Yokai....Like Japanese Mythology where Tanuki like Nook, Timmy, and Tommy, have the ability to transform various objects like rocks, leaves, etc, into ANYTHING. I think our characters were just... spirited away, and the "Mom" figure is... well, as far as I theorize...dead.
