Name in other languages
Cornimer is a tortoise who appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is implied that Cornimer and Tortimer are the same character. In Wild World, Cornimer is a holiday-specific visitor in town and will exchange items for acorns. In Welcome amiibo, he appears only in Animal Crossing Puzzle League as the final boss. In New Horizons, Cornimer serves the same functions as Tortimer, providing the player access to their storage, but only appears during fall and will give the player Acorns when talked to.
Cornimer is identical in appearance to Tortimer, but his head is replaced with an acorn head that has a happy toothy expression carved into it.
Cornimer is presumed to have the same personality as Tortimer, as they both are also presumed to be the same person.
In Wild World
In Animal Crossing: Wild World, Cornimer appears only during the Acorn Festival and gives the player items from the Mushroom Series in exchange for acorns, which are found under oak trees during the festival. However, if the player gives him a rotten acorn, he will say that all the other acorns the player gave him that time do not count. Much like Tortimer telling the player's fortune by using fireworks, he can tell the player's fortune by using acorns.
It is heavily implied that Cornimer is Tortimer in disguise. In addition to their similar appearance and names, during the Acorn Festival, Tortimer is not behind the desk in the town hall. Additinally, the first time Cornimer laughs in his dialogue toward the player, he says, "Hef horf horf... Wait no! Good luck lil' Oakie!", with "hef horf horf" being Tortimer's laugh.
In New Leaf
Cornimer himself returns in the Welcome amiibo update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where he appears as the final boss in the story mode of Animal Crossing: Puzzle League. The character is once again strongly implied to be Tortimer in disguise, as Cornimer wears the same red aloha shirt and uses similar language to Tortimer. Unlike previous stages, there is only a single round versus Cornimer but the difficulty is significantly raised. After being defeated he will initially throw a tantrum, but then acknowledge the player's victory and congratulate them.
In New Horizons
Although initially absent in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Cornimer was added in version 2.0. Cornimer will appear in place of Tortimer on Harv's Island during the fall season. If the player talks to him once each day, he will ask to give them acorns. If they say yes, he will give them a random amount of acorns. Afterward, he works the same as Tortimer, letting the player access their storage.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Cornimer appears as an obtainable sticker. He is also mentioned in Tortimer's trophy description.
