Nookipedia:April Fools'

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
For the in-game event itself, see April Fools' Day

Since 2016, Nookipedia has been participating in the annual April Fools' Day event via ways of hoaxes and jokes. This page documents Nookipedia's April Fools' Day jokes from each year.


In 2016, Nookipedia went for a subtle joke by having its skin constantly change color and season for each page load.


Falling in line with the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance idea of transforming to a "Sony Independent Wiki Alliance", Nookipedia became Toropedia, inspired by PlayStation's Japanese mascot Toro Inoue.


The wiki all about room corners in 2018.

Taking the terminology of nook (a corner, as in a room), Nookipedia became a wiki about nooks instead of the Animal Crossing series.


In 2019, Nookipedia made a hoax announcement of Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival: Happy Home Designer, a combination of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival. This coincided with a theme change, both with its site theme and main page.


In 2021, Nookipedia participated with various Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance wikis on the Edit-by-Pigeon program hoax, adding a site notice that Brewster would let editors deliver edits to the wiki's staff via letters.


Cephalobot's takeover in 2022.

To coincide with Cephalobot's birthday (April 1), Nookipedia announced that it had been seized by Cephalobot to become Cephalopedia. These changes not only affected the main page and certain articles and templates, but also the site's theme, causing the main site to become a monochrome gray and having any rounded edges be replaced with sharp, squared edges.

The Cephalopedia skin can be re-enabled via a gadget.


In 2023, Nookipedia announced reports of a mysterious spirit roaming around the wiki. An image of Farley would fade in and out on pages and when clicked on would give the reader words of wisdom.

The interactive Farley feature can be re-enabled via a gadget.


In 2024, Nookipedia announced that Mr. Resetti had been roaming around the wiki. An image of Resetti appeared on each page and when clicked on would cause all of the text on the page to be capitalized, all images to be replaced by those of Resetti, and Resetti quotes to be inserted at the beginning and end of every paragraph.

The interactive Resetti feature can be re-enabled via a gadget.
