Animal Crossing Fandom
Animal Crossing is a social simulation video game series developed and published by Nintendo and was created by Katsuya Eguchi. In Animal Crossing, the player character is a human who lives in a village inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, carrying out various activities including fishing, bug catching, fossil hunting, etc. The series is notable for its open-ended gameplay and extensive use of the video game consoles' internal clock and calendar to simulate the real passage of time. The fandom went out of control before Animal Crossing: New Horizons was announced.
Why it's Toxic
- Much like the Super Smash Bros. Fandom, they constantly beg Nintendo to post news about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. They also expect AC to be on every Direct when it actually isn't. (Did they forget that Animal Crossing Directs exist?)
- They also made pointless predictions for Animal Crossing being on the Direct of February.
- They don't just like it, they always praise this series too much.
- They are very prone to overreacting, for example, they overreacted when their "favorite game of all time" wasn't on the Nintendo Direct of February 13th by disproportionately crying and getting angry.
- Just like the Super Smash Bros. Fandom, they trash every non-Animal Crossing game during Nintendo Directs and say bad things about it, including great games like Super Mario Maker 2, Yoshi's Crafted World, Deltarune (Yes, that was actually announced), etc.
- Perhaps a minor one, but they make Rule 34/porn art of the characters, mainly Isabelle.
- They also crossover ship Isabelle with characters from other franchises while at it.
- Some probably disrespect others' opinions.
- They beg hackers (especially those with seeders) to add their friend codes only for them to spawn in items, furniture, villagers, etc and nothing else.
- It's very difficult to find someone to play Animal Crossing Population Growing (GameCube), Wild World or City Folk with since the fandom is filled with players with mostly New Leaf, and to some extent, Pocket Camp.
- Some may have a sexual attraction with one of the villagers, yes a villager, this can be seen as bestiality (where someone has sexual interactions with animals, which is highly illegal). An example of this is one of MikoBaiko's mods Bwink who has a toxic relationship toward Punchy, he even said that Bob (a villager who was in all Animal Crossing games and is considered a dreamy by many players in the fandom) is basic even though Punchy was in all AC games (excluding Animal Forest) so wouldn't that make Punchy basic as well? Hypocritical, isn't it? If you don't believe this, he has a town that can be searched up in the Dream Suite named Honeypot (Mayors name is Teddie) where all the villagers are Punchy. There's also a maze in the same town that is made up of trees that you're forced to go through.
- Way too many channels on that are dedicated to Animal Crossing are cluttering up YouTube, just like how the Pokémon fanbase has too many YouTube channels that are dedicated to that franchise.
- They go crazy whenever there aren't any news for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
- It's possible to find trolls, hackers (some of them are good hackers), thief and griefers in this fandom.
- They overuse Tom Nook's Loan meme.
- They took the picture of Tom Nook that was posted by Nintendo's Twitter account way too seriously because they thought it hinted a Nintendo Direct.
- Not all Animal Crossing fans are toxic since most fans respect others' opinions and are quite nice or friendly.
- Some of them understand that the Rule 34/porn art of the characters is wrong.
- Some fans create amazing fanfiction and cute art of the series.
- The good hackers help younger players with the game by helping them get items they need, they also help people that are trying to get stuff for a theme town they're trying to make.
- They make good remixes of the hourly music or K.K. Slider's songs from the game.
