— Luna, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo

Luna is a tapir introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. She runs the Dream Suite, a salon where players can visit other towns in their dreams. Her name comes from the relation between night's sleep and the moon. Her Japanese name contains "yume", the Japanese word for "dream".

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Luna works in the Dream Suite. She allows the player to visit a previously visited town or any town spotted in the SpotPass. In the world of dreams, the player can do anything they like, but any changes will not be saved and items cannot be brought back to the real world.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Luna, along with dreams, was added in the 1.4.0 Free Summer Update Wave 2.

The Dream Suite building does not exist in New Horizons and Luna never appears while the player is awake, unlike in New Leaf. Instead, the player can access Luna's services by sleeping in any bed within their home; beds placed outside and in other villagers' homes do not work. They also cannot be accessed on another player's island, or while the airport gate is open. Her services work the same as they did in New Leaf. When the player uploads their dream, Luna will mail them a Dream Bell Exchange Ticket the next day, which can be sold to Timmy and Tommy for 5,000 Bells. She will send them another for each subsequent update made to the dream.

  • Luna is based on the Japanese myth of the baku, creatures that eat bad dreams of sleeping people and take the form of tapirs.
  • One of Katrina's fortunes implies Luna has trouble sleeping due to frequent nightmares, also hinting at the irony due to the Japanese folklore she's based on.
