"My role is to ferry travelers between dreams, allowing one such as you to tour the islands of distant strangers. Once within the dream of another, it will be as though you have actually set foot on their island. Sounds fascinating, does it not?"

Luna is a tapir introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf who allows the player to visit other towns via dreams. Her name comes from the relation between night's sleep and the moon.



Luna is a dark brown tapir with blonde hair tied into an upward bun. The outer edges of her ears are white. She wears pink eyeshadow, black eyeliner, red lipstick, and three blue makeup dots beneath each eye. The base of her bun is adorned with three white flowers with blue centers. She wears a white coat lined with pink around the ends of her short sleeves, around her pockets, and around her collar, connecting with the upper-half vertical center of her coat. She wears red pumps.


Luna talks in a calm and sophisticated manner. She is well-versed in her area of expertise, which is the world of dreams.


In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Luna works in the Dream Suite. She allows the player to visit a previously visited town or any town found via SpotPass. In the world of dreams, the player can do anything they like, but any changes will not be saved and items cannot be brought back to the real world.

In New Horizons[edit]

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Luna, along with dreams, was added in the 1.4.0 Free Summer Update Wave 2.

The Dream Suite building does not exist in New Horizons and Luna never appears while the player is awake, unlike in New Leaf. Instead, the player can access Luna's services by sleeping in any bed within their home; beds placed outside and in other villagers' homes do not work. They also cannot be accessed on another player's island, or while the airport gate is open. Her services work the same as they do in New Leaf. When the player uploads their dream, Luna will mail them a Dream Bell Exchange Ticket the next day, which can be sold at Nook's Cranny for 5,000 Bells. She will send them another for each subsequent update made to the dream.

Prior to its removal in version 2.0, when the player scans Luna's amiibo card and tries to invite her, she will say:

Hello, this is Luna. Ah! It is you, Player. How may I help you?
A campsite, you say? To decompress and dream beneath a canopy of stars sounds wonderful... but no, I cannot.
There are many sweet dreams to compile and many travelers in need of a guide. Another time, perhaps.

Description NTSC-U: In some parts of the world it's believed tapirs eat dreams, but this one runs the Dream Suite to share dreams. Once you've given her a Dream Address and lain down, she'll send you off to sleep. Soon you'll find yourself in a town worthy of a dream. Enjoy your adventure!

PAL: In some parts of the world, tapirs are thought to eat dreams, but this lovely gal lets you share dreams in her Dream Suite. Just give her a Dream Address and lie down on the bed. She'll count sheep to help you drift off, and before she even gets to three, you'll open your eyes in a dreamtastic town, ready for adventure.

    • Luna may be based on the Japanese myth of the baku, creatures that eat bad dreams of sleeping people and take the form of tapirs.
    • One of Katrina's fortunes implies Luna has trouble sleeping due to frequent nightmares, also hinting at the irony due to the Japanese folklore she may be based on.
    • Luna's birthday falls on a Leap Day.
