Trivia[edit]

  • The description for the Tycoon Bell Saver badge erroneously states that it is for players who have saved 1 billion Bells, when the actual requirement for the badge is 100 million Bells.
  • The Mr./Ms. Sandman badge's name is likely a reference to The Chordettes song "Mr. Sandman", which features the lyrics "Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream".
