The Cancer table is a houseware furniture item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It is part of the Stars Series. The item's top surface can be used to place smaller items, such as miscellaneous furniture.

The Cancer table can be obtained from crafting, which requires star fragment, Cancer fragment, gold nugget, and stone. The recipe for this item can be obtained from Celeste or from message bottles found on the Star Fragment island via Kapp'n's boat tours.

This item appears as a furniture item in the homes of Aurora, Boris, Diva, Elvis, Julian, Klaus, and Knox. As a result, this item has a chance to be purchasable by the player if they were invited by any of the preceding villagers.

In Happy Home Paradise, this item is unlocked for use in designing when doing a vacation home request for Diana, Drago, Elvis, Freckles, Julian, Marina, and Ruby.

In the designing process of Happy Home Paradise, this item is required as one of the tables for the dining hall at the café, as one of the tables for the dining hall at the restaurant, and as one of the desks for the classroom at the school.


When giving the Cancer table to Celeste, she will say the following:

"There was a monster called the Hydra poisoning a spring that was a kingdom's main water supply. When the great hero Heracles heard about this, he set out to rid the land of the beast. Just as Heracles was about to land the finishing blow, the Hydra's friend, a crab, arrived to help it out. But the crab was no match for Heracles, who stepped on it and crushed it instantly. The brave crab, who cared so deeply for its friend, was immortalized in the stars as the constellation, Cancer. If only everyone was so lucky as to have a friend who would come running when they're in a pinch!"
