Listen, straight off, I know my little brother can be a real pain. Thanks for puttin' up with him.
― Don Resetti, City Folk

I wish you luck in all you do.
― Don Resetti, New Leaf

Don Resetti (ラケットさん, Raketto san?, Mr. Racket) works for the Reset Intervention Bureau, later called the Reset Surveillance Center, with his younger brother, Mr. Resetti. He, like his brother, will give the player a small lecture about the importance of saving the game after each play. He is not as full on as his younger brother, and will merely advise the player about saving, rather than threatening them or having the player repeat sentences after him. He is a mole with stubble on his face. He wears blue overalls and a white, long-sleeved shirt, which makes him appear older and mature compared to his brother. He also holds a pickaxe, which relates to his species, the mole, known for digging underground. His name is a play on "Don't Reset."


In Animal Crossing

Don from Animal Crossing.

In Animal Crossing, Don Resetti replaces his brother the fifth time the player resets. He appears mellow, in comparison to his brother, by not shouting and screaming at the player for resetting. When he leaves, he does not return again, and Mr. Resetti does not mention him.

In City Folk

Don was absent from Wild World but he reappears in City Folk, and his personality has not changed since Animal Crossing. He appears after the player resets five times, and after the player logs on after they first move in. He is mild-mannered and tells the player that his brother (who he refers to as "Sonny") is a good guy. Unlike Resetti, he does not yell "SCRAM!" when he ends his talk.

Don will also sometimes be present in the Reset Surveillance Center. This can only be accessed after 8:00 PM on random nights and if one of the two traffic cones blocking the entrance are removed. Once the player enters and talks to Don or his brother, they will give the player a silver shovel to leave.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, Don operates the Reset Surveillance Center with his brother, Mr. Resetti. After a few visits to the center, Don may give his picture to the player. He can also be seen visiting the cafe after it is built.

Similar to previous installments, he appears after the player resets five times. Likewise, he tells them that his brother (again, refers to him as "Sonny") is a good guy. The player is able to tap on three different options, like for his younger brother, each of which provide a different response from Don.

In Happy Home Designer

Don Resetti can appear in Resetti's room if the player calls Resetti via amiibo phone (in turn through scanning Resetti's amiibo Card). Don Resetti will appear during Resetti's home's house inspection, which happens after the player and his brother both agree on finishing off redesigning Resetti's home.

In New Horizons

In New Horizons, Don is shown to be helping Resetti with the Rescue Service, covering for him when he is on his break. He speaks to himself for a boost of confidence before transferring the player to their destination.

Sometimes, he may pop up in The Roost from time to time.

  • When Don appears for a reset lecture, the theme that plays is a down-tempo variation of the normal Resetti theme. Additionally, Don Resetti's theme replaces a baritone saxophone with a trombone.
  • The pairing of the two brothers is comparable to that of the Mario Bros.
  • In City Folk, he may tell the player that Resetti has been talking about Celeste often, but he rarely says it to anyone.
  • It is possible his name is a pun on "don't reset".
    • Don's Spanish name is a pun on the word "formateado", which means "formatted", and refers to organizing data.
  • In City Folk, Don Resetti has the voice of a jock villager, but in New Leaf he has the voice of a smug villager. His voice is higher than Resetti's voice in City Folk but lower in New Leaf.
  • Don Resetti shares his birthday with Clyde. Both of them have a birthday on May 1st.
