― Farley, Animal Crossing
Farley is a character in Animal Crossing series that only appears in Animal Crossing and Animal Forest e+. Farley lives in the fountain and comes out to give the player a golden axe once the player has a perfect town. Farley is most likely the person that speaks to the player when they speak with the bell shrine/fountain. Farley's species is unknown, but widely speculated to be of troll/gnome origin.

Like Franklin, Farley never made an appearance in Animal Forest nor Animal Forest+. Instead, he was added to the North American release.

Profile Farley is shrouded in mystery. No one seems to know where this character comes from or even what sort of creature it is, but one thing is for sure: you will only meet Farley if your town is a great place to be.

Farley in the fountain.

  • Due to their similar roles, it is possible Farley was replaced by Serena in City Folk. Both appear in the fountain, and both give the player a better axe.
  • In the Prima Animal Crossing Guide, Farley is never mentioned, despite the clear label in the front: "All 236 animals revealed." What's stranger is a picture of Farley is shown in place of a snowman, yet no info on Farley is featured.
  • The statue in the Wishing Well is of Farley, which might be where he resides. Thus, there are theories that he talks to the player through the statue.
  • Along with Joan, Luna, and the player (in the Happy Home Showcase or in a Dream Town) Farley is the only character to have his own unique voice. His voice is very odd, and sounds like the more common male voice, but slowed down.
  • His Japanese name, いずみじいや, when translated literally means "Fountain Maintainer".
