Chief telling the player about rumours

Julian telling a rumor to the player about him and Tangy

Reputation is a function in Animal Crossing series in which players are labeled by villagers.

Villagers will not only tell the player that there are rumors about them; they will also inform the player what rumors are forming about other players, such as those from their own town, or visiting players who have spoken to their villagers.

Reputations

How the player is labeled depends on certain actions performed by the player. For example, a player who time travels often may be rumored to be a "Time Traveler" by villagers, or even by villagers of towns that the player has visited.

  • Cranky villagers will state that rumors can be frightening.
  • Jock villagers may ask to spread rumors about their latest world record, or complain that others say that they are a prince from another planet.
  • Normal villagers will comment that they will only spread rumors they have seen themselves.
  • Lazy villagers will tell the player that there's a rumor of another villager having very ticklish feet, and that they will use it to their advantage in the future.
  • Smug villagers may remark that they have done things with other villagers, but refuse to elaborate on the details.
  • Snooty villagers will use fabricated examples to show the player that simple rumors can spread very quickly. They will also be concerned if it's rumored that they've been talking about the player behind their back.
  • Sisterly villagers will complain that rumors are circulating that they are known for one sport, when it is in fact another.
  • Peppy villagers will ask the player for any gossip, think you are keeping something secret, and ask for you to give them the details.
