Name in other languages
Don Resetti, also known as simply Don, is a mole in the Animal Crossing series. He is the older, calmer brother of Mr. Resetti. His name may be a pun on "don't reset," referring to his job. In games prior to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, he appears rarely in place of his brother when the player resets or does not save. Likewise, in New Horizons, he appears rarely in place of his brother as the operator of the Rescue Service. Don first appears in Doubutsu no Mori+ and appears in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Wild World.
Don is a brown mole with a dark-brown beard, black whiskers around his nose, and black, upturned eyebrows with dark-brown linings. His hands and the tip of his nose are brown to dark-brown. Like his younger brother, Mr. Resetti, he wears a white shirt, blue overalls, black boots, and a yellow helmet. He is taller and thinner than his brother. In Doubutsu no Mori+ only, he instead wears a green helmet with a white stripe, and no overalls. He mostly closes his baggy eyes and mouth, only showing black eyelids and dark-brown lips, but when he opens them, his eyes are small, oval/round-shaped, and black with white pupils, while his mouth has reddish-pink inside, and inside also has white buck teeth and a pink tongue.
Don is not as harsh as his younger brother, and will merely advise the player about saving, rather than yelling, threatening them, or having the player repeat sentences after him.
In Animal Crossing
In Animal Crossing, Don Resetti replaces his brother the seventh time the player resets. He appears mellow in comparison to his brother, by not shouting and screaming at the player for resetting.
In City Folk
Don Resetti reappears in Animal Crossing: City Folk after his absence in Animal Crossing: Wild World, and his personality has not changed since Animal Crossing. He appears after the player resets five times. He is mild mannered, and tells the player that his brother (who he refers to as "Sonny") is a good guy. Unlike Resetti, he does not yell "SCRAM!" when he ends his talk.
Don will also sometimes be present in the Resetti Surveillance Center. This can be accessed after 8:00 PM on random nights and if one of the two traffic cones are removed. Once the player enters and talk to Don or his brother, they will give the player a silver shovel to leave.
In New Leaf
Don Resetti also appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He replaces Mr. Resetti the sixth time the game is reset after the Reset Center has been built and does not appear again. If the player visits the Reset Center five times, Don will give his picture to the player.
In New Horizons
Like his brother, Don also works with the Rescue Service and only appears via dialogue. He sometimes fills in for Mr. Resetti, and he may also appear in Resetti's place if the player calls the Rescue Service excessively, mentioning Resetti is taking a break. He will tell the player to think of him as a role similar to a substitute teacher, keeping his calm demeanor and admitting that he is new to the program.
