|Name in other languages|
Gullivarrr is a gull in Animal Crossing: New Horizons introduced in the 1.3.0 Free Summer Update Wave 1 who shares strong similarities with Gulliver. Similar to Gulliver, the player can encounter Gullivarrr as he washes ashore dressed as a pirate captain. His name is a portmanteau of Gulliver and arrr, a phrase used by pirates in popular culture.
Initially, as the player repeatedly tries to speak to the character to wake him up, the nametag above the dialogue box will be Gulliver; however, once he is awakened, he will introduce himself as Captain Gullivarrr, and his nametag changes to Gullivarrr accordingly. He will then ask the player to retrieve his single Communicator (contrasting from the five Communicator Parts Gulliver asks for). The communicator can be found in sea and must be retrieved by diving with a wet suit. Once the communicator is found, Gullivarrr will contact his pirate crew, and the next day, the player will receive a letter from Gullivarrr containing an item from the Pirate Series or a pirate-themed article of clothing.
Despite the names, appearances and predicaments being similar between Gullivarrr and Gulliver, Gullivarrr does not recognize the player, even if they have already met Gulliver.
Gullivarrr strongly resembles Gulliver, being a white seagull with an orange and black beak and thick orange eyebrows. He is dressed with a pirate hat and red pirate outfit. His eyes differ slightly from Gulliver's, with his irises being shaped like X's rather than star symbols as well as having dark rings around his eyes.
The following items can be received from Gullivarrr after his Communicator is returned.
