Gulliver (ジョニー, Jonī, Johnny) is a gull in the Animal Crossing series. His only function is to reward the player with special furniture, usually artifacts from around the world that cannot be obtained anywhere else in the game. His name is a play on words to the fact that he is a gull, as well as a reference to Gulliver's Travels, a book by Jonathan Swift about a man who travels to the far corners of the earth, before being shipwrecked and washing up on the shore of a previously undiscovered land.


Doubutsu no Mori[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori, Gulliver has the same role appearance from Animal Crossing, but instead of giving a rare furniture item, he gives only a random one. When the player talks to him, he may speak English, despite the game being all in Japanese.

Animal Crossing[edit]

— Gulliver, Animal Crossing

Unlike in later games, Gulliver appears as a sailor in Animal Crossing. Gulliver can sometimes be found lying on the beach in Animal Crossing. He must be first woken up. Players do this by talking to him multiple times. He then tells the player an unbelievable and dramatic story about his adventures at sea, sometimes involving a giant squid which is assumed to be a jellyfish. Gulliver then gives a rare piece of furniture to the player, thanking them for helping him.

It is also possible for the player to see Gulliver floating in the ocean during a trip to the Island. When the player returns, Gulliver will likely be located somewhere along the beaches.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

"Mommy...Is that you? Gimme 5 more minutes, Mom..."
— Gulliver, Animal Crossing: Wild World

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, Gulliver is no longer a sailor, but an astronaut that infrequently flies over the player's town in a typical UFO styled spacecraft, called Porpoise, a possible reference to the ship that Captain Olimar uses in the Pikmin series, called the Dolphin. The player can shoot him with a slingshot, causing him to crash somewhere in the town. The screen cuts to the scene of the crash, which is always situated on top of one of the signposts that are scattered about the town. After being woken up, Gulliver does a quick survey of his craft, revealing that five parts are missing. These parts, which are dotted around town in the form of cogs called a UFO part, must be recovered by the player in exchange for a rare item. Gulliver and his spaceship then disappear the next time the game is played.

It should be noted that he does say that he hopes the player will see him off the next morning, even though he goes the next time the player plays again.

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

"Ugh...Gimme a break...There's no...No school today..."
Gulliver, Animal Crossing: City Folk

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, he retains the same appearance as before in Animal Crossing: Wild World. His spacecraft can be seen flying about the same height as a floating balloon, though much faster. The player can shoot at him with a slingshot, causing his ship to malfunction and appear the next day on the beach. During this time, a piece of his spacecraft will land somewhere in the town. He takes a while to regain consciousness, usually about five attempts of talking to him. When he wakes up, he will survey his surroundings and make unusual remarks about the player's appearance. He will ask the player for help, to find his spaceship part, which appears as a small, cog-like item on the ground called a 'spaceship part'. When given the part for his ship, he will give the player one of his rare items.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

"No! That's the left! Starboard's on the right...It's because starfish are right-handed...Zzzz..."
Gulliver, Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Gulliver appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as he does in Animal Crossing, with his sailor outfit, washing up on the shore of the beach. To wake him up, the player may either use the megaphone and say his name into the 3DS's microphone, or try to talk to Gulliver a number of times. Once awoken, he will ask the player where he was heading before he washed up on shore, providing the player with key information about his destination, a country in the real world, such as the United States or France. When answered, Gulliver may send a letter the next day containing a present from the country he is visiting. If Gulliver notes that the guess is incorrect, he will send a letter containing a chocolate coin.

NTSC-U: Gulliver is a seagull who is not the best sailor, despite dressing the part. You can usually find him shipwrecked on the beach with a bad case of the forgets. If you help him remember where he was headed, he'll set on his travels once more. In time, you'll get a thank-you souvenir!

PAL: While sailing the seven seas, Gulliver often finds himself in the most dramatic and totally manly situations that end with him washing up on a beach with just the teeeensiest bit of amnesia. If you can help him remember where he was off to, he'll get right back to his travels and even send you a local souvenir as a thank-you!
