Farley is a special character in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ who gives the player the Golden Axe. He appears at the wishing well after the player's town maintains a perfect Field Rank for 15 consecutive days and does not appear again after the Golden Axe is received. Farley, along with Franklin, is the only character in Animal Crossing to not appear in either Doubutsu no Mori or Doubutsu no Mori+; the Golden Axe does not appear in the former, and it is given to the player by the shrine in the latter. In City Folk, Serena plays a similar role to Farley.
