- "Dreams are but a reflection of your unconscious self."
- — Luna, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Welcome amiibo, and New Horizons
Name in other languages
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; similarly, her Japanese name contains "yume," the Japanese word for "dream."
In New Leaf
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
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.
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.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

amiibo card artwork
- 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.
