Strange letters are a phenomena in the Animal Crossing series. On occasion, when talking to a villager, they will ask the player about a strange letter they have received. They will then show the player one of many letters possible in the game. The player will have options to reply indicating that they do or do not understand the letter.


While the letters may seem to have no purpose other than the player's entertainment, many of them are actually indirect gameplay hints. They may hint at things such as listening for hidden insects (like crickets in Animal Crossing), or planting trees.
