Don Resetti, also known as simply Don, is a mole who works for the Resetti Surveillance Center with his younger[1] brother, Mr. Resetti. He, like his brother, will give the player a small lecture about the importance of saving the game after each play. He is not as harsh and full on 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. He is a mole with stubble on his face, who wears blue overalls and a white, long sleeved shirt, which makes him appear older and mature compared to his brother. He also holds a pickaxe, which relates to his species, the mole, known for digging under ground. He is absent in Doubutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing: Wild World.


In Animal Crossing[edit]

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.

Don is a new character added to Animal Crossing and is not present in Doubutsu no Mori.

In City Folk[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

Don's Poster in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Like his brother, Don also works with the Rescue Service and only appears via dialog. 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.

Don's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after attempting to invite him to Photopia via his amiibo.

Don Resetti

Description NTSC-U: Don and Sonny Resetti run the Reset Surveillance Center. They keep a careful eye out for players who might be resetting their games without saving. As Don likes to say, "Resettin' ain't good. So don't do it!" If Sonny is the brother who catches you, you'll hear a lot more than that!

PAL: This chap runs the Reset Surveillance Center with his brother, the fabled scolder Mr. Resetti (first name: Sonny). Their job is to warn players who switch off without saving. Don's gentle about it, though. He'll say stuff like, "Resettin' ain't no good. So, um, don't do it!" If you get caught resetting, just hope it's Don's face you see.

    • Although Don is physically absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, placeholder data for his NookPhone exists and uses the "FtrCmnFabricKarakusa00" fabric pattern, a green karakusa design with white spirals.[2] Karakusa is a traditional Japanese pattern that is typically used on wrapping cloths.[3] Don and Mr. Resetti share the same placeholder fabric pattern for their NookPhones.
