List of implied items
Anyisle is an unseen island mentioned in New Horizons. "Someone" from Anyisle is the designer of both the default patterns on display at the Able Sisters shop and the default patterns in the NookPhone's Custom Designs app. Anyisle actually means Any island, meaning that the defualt patterns were designed by someone from any island.
Anytown is an unseen town mentioned in all games prior to New Horizons. "Someone" from Anytown is the designer of the default patterns on display at the Able Sisters shop, and in New Leaf is also the seller who put up the default items present in the Re-Tail store. This is the equivalent of Anyisle, because the players live in towns, not islands.
Bagel Boy is an unseen comic in the Animal Crossing series. Lazy villagers will occasionally ask for it from other villagers. As with other comics and DVDs, the owner will charge 500 Bells a day due to their low amount of Bells. The price will later be changed to 3,500 Bells in the conversation because the lazy villager wishes to keep it for a week, and therefore becomes too expensive for him. In New Horizons, lazy villagers may tell the player their ambitions to become a superhero named "Bagel Boy Jr."
Beep Boot Deet Boop
Boondox is an unseen town located north of the player's town in Wild World. It is generally described as a very poor, uncivilized town. The player can donate Bells to Boondox by speaking to Pelly or Phyllis at the Town Hall. At certain donation landmarks, the Boondoxians will send the player a letter informing them how their donations are being used to help Boondox greatly. Enclosed in certain letters will be a feather. Donating Bells to Boondox is the only way of obtaining the feathers, and cannot be bought from Tom Nook's catalog. In one letter, a resident of Boondox states that they are studying for the "Lake University entrance exams".
The existence of Boondox is highly debated. Cranky villagers will tell the player that they donated and after doing so, Tortimer went past them either saying "I'm having steak tonight!" or installing a plasma TV in his house, implying that Tortimer made up Boondox for his own profits.
Captain Paperweight is a comic book mentioned by lazy villagers in City Folk. It is a reference to modern-day superhero comics.

Coffee bean providers
Coralcola is an island mentioned by Gulliver in New Horizons. After retrieving Gulliver's lost communicator parts, Gulliver will occasionally say that the player's helpfulness reminds him of the time he washed up on Coralcola. It is likely a reference to the NES game Startropics, in which the island you play on is called CoralCola.
Dr. Shrunk's Laffs and Gaffes
Dr. Shrunk's Laffs and Gaffes is an unseen DVD in City Folk. Sometimes lazy villagers will ask other villagers if they can borrow a copy of it. The villager answering will always own a copy but will ask for a fee of 500 Bells a day due to their shortness on Bells which will end up 3,500 for a week. The lazy villager will then reject it and say that buying the DVD would be cheaper. There are also other various volumes of Dr. Shrunk's DVD.
Fancy Freestyling is an unseen TV music show mentioned by peppy villagers in New Horizons. It's "where the rap stars of tomorrow make their debut". The villager may tell the player that if they ever got the chance to be on the show, they would freak out "because I don't know how to rap."

It doesn't matter if Maglev Mike took their relationship off the rails..." before asking the player if they'd like to learn a DIY recipe.

The mop is revealed to be the best friend of a normal villager, and after conversations between two normal villagers will reveal that Moppina is a good friend of any normal villager in the town, but is never seen. When talking to other normal villagers, it is revealed they both talk to it, try out hairstyles on it and even cook with it. Normal villagers also talk to snooty types about Moppina, but not with as much success. When they talk to peppy villagers about Moppina, they ask if they can meet her. Moppina is also mentioned in Maple's picture in Wild World.
Ms. Nintendique is an unseen magazine mentioned by all female villagers in the town with the name referencing Nintendo, but it cannot be obtained or read.

The magazine was first referenced in Wild World and has been noted in all subsequent games. Snooty villagers make references to it most often, referring to beauty tips and products. Some tips are agreed on, but sometimes villagers will show doubts about the truth, warning the player to take it with a grain of salt.
- Main article: Parents
In the Animal Crossing series, the player's parents, referred to as Mom and Dad, occasionally write letters to them. Mom will write more often than Dad, who only writes on Father's Day, although more often in New Leaf. It has also been theorized that the father character is Zipper T. Bunny, from the Bunny Day Event. Although the player's parents are never seen, it can be assumed that they are humans, making them the only NPC humans in the entire series.
Pointed Love is an unseen romance soap opera. The soap is only mentioned by Sable, the oldest Able Sister. After the player befriends her in City Folk, if the player speaks to her on a Thursday, she will say "Last night, Mabel recorded my favorite soap opera, Pointed Love: season four.

Posy Farm will thank the player for purchasing Posy Farm seeds and will have a silver can attached to it.
Precipitation Monthly is an unseen magazine read by the Snowman which is built by the player during Winter. The only known information of this magazine is that it has a list of eligible "snowbachelors". If a Snowman is out of proportion, he will say it is only a matter of time before he makes Precipitation Monthly's list of Snowmen with the worst bodies. However, if the player builds a perfect snowman he will comment it's only a matter of time before he makes the list of snowbachelors.
Screech Along is an unseen TV music show mentioned by peppy villagers in New Horizons, specializing in metal. The villagers mention that everyone on the show "has the best hair". The villager may tell the player that if they ever got the chance to be on the show, they would "scream the roof off the place."
Slappy Clobbertown is a TV show (based on a book series with 71 volumes) mentioned by peppy villagers to cranky villagers in New Horizons. So far, the TV show has 600 episodes, but only covers the first four books, and the peppy villager suggests that they watch them together once the cranky villager has read all the novels. The series seems to be mostly about a "doomed love affair between the heroes. The town is against them, but they slap and clobber their enemies, and they keep on loving." The first novel is entitled Sing a Song of Clobbertown. In the book, and presumably the show, the characters speak Elizabethan English.
Peppy villagers also mention that everybody loves the show: "Folks cosplay it, get tattoos of, and name their children after characters!" Fans of the show refer to themselves as "Slobbers". SlapClobCon also exists, which is most likely a convention about Slappy Clobbertown, and the peppy villager suggests traveling to the next SlapClobCon together.
"Oh well...if it's a book! Sing a Song of Clobbertown, huh. So this is a fun read?" - Cranky villager when given the first volume of Slappy Clobbertown.
Space Hammer Blaster
Sumware is an unseen location in City Folk. Mabel claims it is where Wendell lives in City Folk; in Wild World, he was said to live in Tuskany. The spelling of this location suggests it is not just an ambiguous term for an unknown place or town but an actual area.
Tony's Dancing Clown Coffee & Internet Hut
This is an unseen competitor to The Roost coffee shop that is sometimes mentioned in passing by snooty villagers if the player talks to them at The Roost in New Leaf. According to the villager, it is located "over in that other town".
Treehut is an unseen town in Wild World and City Folk, presumably named after the Nintendo North American localization team, Treehouse. Upon the first visit to Able Sisters, all the designs that are there are from people in Treehut. Of the eight known Treehut designers (Tim, Alan, Scot, C-no, Ann, Sass, Rich, and Rei Rei), only three can be paired to their real life equivalent beyond a reasonable doubt (Tim: Tim O'Leary, Scot: Scot Ritchey, Rich: Rich Amtower). The player cannot travel to Treehut, and it is unknown if the visitors that do come to the player's town are from Treehut.
Turnip Your Enthusiasm
Turnip Your Enthusiasm is an unseen magazine in New Horizons mentioned by sisterly villagers. They will talk about them giving an old, beat up copy of it to their old neighbor because he would read it something like 18 times.
Tuskany is an unseen town in Animal Crossing series. It is the home and place of Wendell in Wild World. In City Folk, Mabel claims Wendell is from "Sumware". In Wild World, when the player asks Mabel about one of Wendell's patterns, she will claim that it is by "Wendell from Tuskany". The name is probably a reference to the Italian region of Tuscany which is famous for its art, spelling it with "tusk" instead for an added pun.
