The superheroes, also called super heroes (singular super hero), are five villagers who dress up, very aptly, like superheroes. Any reference to being superheroes is shared with their personality types. Each hero is in a different personality group: Kid Cat is a jock villager, Agent S is a peppy villager, Big Top is a lazy villager, Rocket is an uchi villager, and Filly is a normal villager. Kid Cat, Agent S, and Big Top all make their debut appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, and reappear in all installments since, Rocket first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Filly first appears in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Four of the five (excluding Filly) are also clients in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and they have a preference for the Sporty theme.
They are the only villagers who wear full headgear. Also, all of them (excluding Filly) have six letters in their name (not counting spaces).
