The Timer is a tool introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World, and appears in all subsequent games. It allows the player to set a timer for 3, 5, 10, and 15 minutes. The timer comes in one form and, unlike most tools, no other variations are available.

Usage[edit]

The timer is most useful during online play, where it can be used to hold competitions amongst friends and visitors. The timer will track how many fish, insects and (in New Leaf only) how many sea creatures have been caught by each player during the allotted time. In Wild World, only the player who sets the timer may control it. In City Folk, any player has the ability to stop the timer and the alarm will sound even if the timer is buried in the ground. In both games, Brewster will ask players to turn off their timers before K.K. Slider's live show begins.
