File:Smash Bros Symbol.png

A few days ago, it looks like File:Smash Bros Symbol.png was deleted for being unused, but it's used for Template:SSB, so it's caused some pages to be added to Category:Pages with broken file links. HylianAngel (talk) 17:32, January 25, 2021 (EST)

I've restored the image; thanks for letting me know. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 17:51, January 25, 2021 (EST)


Do these press images from Nintendo Japan belong in Animal Crossing: New Horizons/Update History? -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 05:19, January 27, 2021 (EST)

Hmm, I suppose we could rename the section to "Promotional images" and include those. In the past this hasn't been an issue since all official promo images were included in the press releases, but not this time for some reason. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 16:50, January 27, 2021 (EST)

February renders

Hey, the HQ ACNH renders of the February-born villagers are now available on the NoE site.

Once again, my computer has a very bad cropping system, so I have no choice but to depend on you or anyone else on this Wiki to upload them all. TurtleCrossing (talk) 14:22, February 8, 2021 (EST)'s now uploaded. vmario97 (talk) 15:22, February 8, 2021 (EST)

Just askin'; do you have any interest in applying for bureaucrat soon? I'd be happy to nominate you! Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 13:07, March 16, 2021 (EDT)

Sounds good, I accept your nomination. Thank you for your support! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 13:53, March 16, 2021 (EDT)

PGClothingVillagers cargo

First of all, I now completely understand that we should be using the standard format for the item pages, but I do have one thing to ask: Is there any way to can access the PGClothingVillagers cargo (or whatever it's called) in case there are some errors on the Item pages that need to be fixed (for example, I have seen cases on a few Item pages where a particular villager is duplicated)? Snapping Turtle NH Icon.pngTurtleCrossing of the Turtle TribeTortimer PC Character Icon.png 19:33, April 4, 2021 (EDT)

The template can be accessed here, however it pulls data from this Cargo table. Can you let me know which pages have duplicates? I can get that fixed by refreshing the Cargo table. Also, I've opened a task for the PGClothingVillagers template to be updated to account for the Japanese versions, so they can automatically be updated. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 19:40, April 4, 2021 (EDT)
Hmm, so you can't edit specific cargo templates through the Wiki alone? That's pretty inconvenient, if you ask me.
Anyway, so after doing a big search, I can tell you I did not spot a single case of unnecessary villager duplication (though I do personally object to how pages like the Diner Uniform page are handled). I recall seeing duplicates of Aziz on the Anju's Shirt page and I believe Flash on the Blue Aloha Shirt, but those appeared to have been fixed.
With that out of the way, all that I feel needs to be added are the rest of the villagers exclusive to e+ for their respective shirts' item pages. Snapping Turtle NH Icon.pngTurtleCrossing of the Turtle TribeTortimer PC Character Icon.png 20:45, April 4, 2021 (EDT)
The Cargo tables pull their data from other pages, acting as a database of sorts. For example, the pg_villager table pulls its data from the PGVillagerInfo sections of the villager pages. The PGClothingVillagers template just takes that data stored in Cargo and formats it to display as a sentence. The tasks site is just to organize work that needs to be done, it's not required to edit the templates; I just don't know enough about Cargo to update the template, so I started that task to note that we need to do that. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 20:53, April 4, 2021 (EDT)
I've prepared an update for PGClothingVillagers, but I'll push it live in a few hours after the Cargo table finishes refreshing.
On a sidenote, Alex - I'd like to upload cropped versions of the new PG villager models. I suppose we could name them as X PG Model Cropped.png? Let me know your preference. ~SuperHamster Talk 02:34, April 5, 2021 (EDT)
Updated template. It's not a very sophisticated change and results in some repetitive entries like Item:A Shirt (Animal Crossing) - I'll work on improving that. ~SuperHamster Talk 11:22, April 5, 2021 (EDT)
Thank you for updating the template! Yeah, X PG Model Cropped.png sounds good. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 14:03, April 5, 2021 (EDT)

New June 2020 Villagers in Pocket Camp

Sanrio Amiibos release date UK

Missing N64 models

Yo, so I've noticed that Amelia, Puck, and Spike are the only villagers whose differences are listed on the Doubutsu no Mori page yet do not have their models from that version uploaded on this Wiki.

Given their default shirts are primarily black in color, is this perhaps due to transparency issues (as I've seen as the reason for some GameCube models not being uploaded here)? Snapping Turtle NH Icon.pngTurtleCrossing of the Turtle TribeTortimer PC Character Icon.png 12:54, April 19, 2021 (EDT)

Yep, it's due to the transparency not being possible because of their black shirts. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 12:56, April 19, 2021 (EDT)

Party Dress and Tuxedo

Hey, don't know if you're the right person to ask this question to, but you did upload the two models of the shirts I mentioned in the header, so I might as well ask you anyway.

Do you know if the textures for the Party Dress and the Tuxedo in Doubutsu no Mori are used at all? I do know there are 8 other shirt designs in the game that the player can't wear at all, but are still worn by NPC villagers in certain events (like the Puffy Vests or the Sweatsuits), so I'm wondering if the same applies to these two shirts as well. Snapping Turtle NH Icon.pngTurtleCrossing of the Turtle TribeTortimer PC Character Icon.png 19:28, April 19, 2021 (EDT)

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe they're completely unused. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 19:38, April 19, 2021 (EDT)

About the Murphy page

The reason I removed part of his catchphrase note is because every other villager that had their catchphrase changed in New Horizons (from what I've seen) only has "New Horizons" in their note. Pocket Camp isn't mentioned at all (I'm also unaware if this is a new change). ~ Vivian (Talk with me?) Vivian DnMe+ Minigame.png 21:58, April 20th, 2021 (EDT)

I think if the catchphrase was changed/added to Pocket Camp after the release of New Horizons, then it could be "New Horizons onwards"; if it changed (like in this case), the change can be noted in the Pocket Camp section of the page. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 22:11, April 20, 2021 (EDT)


WW Simon Move-In.png

I found this image you uploaded. i saw the date it was uploaded in March 17, 2021 this is quite weird because monkey villagers are impossible to obtain right now in wild world - unsigned comment from Tabbythecutestcat (talkcontribs)

I was able to get the monkey villagers to move in using the original distribution cartridge. While these were only meant to be used in stores during the distribution period, they can be found second-hand, and they work in any regular DS. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 17:33, April 25, 2021 (EDT)

Creating flan tank page

Could you create a blank flan tank page for me to add stuff on? I'll do my research. (Online cause I don't Have a 3DS)

Bebber71😺 Petaldancer66😺 15:31, April 27, 2021 (EDT)

I would wait until this spreadsheet with all the items from New Leaf is finished before we start creating pages for New Leaf items. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 16:10, April 27, 2021 (EDT)

Okay. Bebber71😺 Petaldancer66😺 16:59, April 27, 2021 (EDT)

The New LEaf Data Spreadsheet

Oi! So I want to work on that because I have Stuff in my head like, "Wait, I know the arrow sign is not a wall mounted item! Why is it blank..." Bebber71😺 Petaldancer66😺 20:21, April 27, 2021 (EDT)

We're still working on that. We have to rely on our data that we left here on this wiki and external sources, though many issues have arisen over furniture colors/themes/parameters. Most of these are hidden on .bin files that we have no idea what is inside of each. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 20:33, April 27, 2021 (EDT)

Repeating villagers in table

Hi, I noticed some villagers are repeating in the table. Can you please fix this? (Link here Kalina (talk) Pikachu Sig Icon.png 19:54, April 28 2021 (CET)

It should be fixed now, thanks for letting me know. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 15:29, April 28, 2021 (EDT)

Case of the missing Kid Cat

In most of the articles, Kid Cat (the jock cat) is nowhere to be seen! - User:TheLegendaryPuff|The Legendary Puff 16:27, May 1, 2021 (EDT)

Thank you for pointing it out. Kid Cat was missing from several cargo tables for some reason, but they have been refreshed, so things should look normal again. HylianAngel (talk) 02:43, May 2, 2021 (EDT)

Wrong spreadsheet links

Yo, don't know if you're the right person to ask this question to, but while I was trying to find the spreadsheet for the original Animal Crossing to figure out if I can give the Well Model furniture item the DnM+ tag in the appearances section of its infobox (since the Shrine Model probably won't have its own dedicated page), I've noticed a few items from the N64/GCN games link to the New Horizons spreadsheet, instead. (for example, the aforementioned Well Model, the NES furniture model, and the Sandlot carpet item. There's very likely much more, but those are the first ones I found with this issue)

Any reason for this? Snapping Turtle NH Icon.pngTurtleCrossing of the Turtle TribeTortimer PC Character Icon.png 00:40, May 9, 2021 (EDT)

I've updated the Well Model page. Yeah, those pages aren't supposed to link to the ACNH Spreadsheet; I've opened a task for them to be replaced with the correct link. In the meantime, you can find the ACGC Spreadsheet here. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 01:02, May 9, 2021 (EDT)
Links have been fixed - thanks for bringing it up Turtle! ~SuperHamster Talk 03:58, May 9, 2021 (EDT)

This edit.

Why did you delete the last part about the Dreamcast. It's true that the Dreamcast is part of the same generation as the PS2, GameCube, and Xbox, even if it did get discontinued before the GameCube and Xbox launched. --Dr. Peach (talk) 13:39, May 13, 2021 (EDT)

It is true, but I don't think it's necessary to note on this page. Mentioning the console's competitors is kind of stretching it with our coverage, since we're an Animal Crossing wiki and don't need in-depth non-Animal Crossing info, so we definitely don't need to mention a console the GameCube didn't even compete with. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 13:54, May 13, 2021 (EDT)

Again, why did you also delete the point about the N64 being a fifth-generation console and info about it competing with the PlayStation and Saturn. They are common general knowledge points that almost every other NIWA wiki, including the Zelda and Mario Wiki note down. We should be improving articles, even if they have non-Animal Crossing-related info that's at least Nintendo-related, rather than water them down. We note it on the GameCube, Wii, Wii U, and Switch pages so why remove them from the N64 page. Who cares if doesn't have to do with Animal Crossing, it is still important info. --Dr. Peach (talk) 10:40, May 14, 2021 (EDT)

Alright pwwnd, I think your obsession with video game consoles in general have been pretty annoying, both within NIWA and outside NIWA. You were confronted about your unnecessary editions to the Wii U article on Super Mario Wiki when you were editing as an IP (which by the way you shouldn't have done editing at all, because of reasons), and your editing warring on Wikipedia over the exact same things. If you want to include all that information, I highly recommend contacting tacopill either through email or by the NIWA Discord to obtain a NintendoWiki account. From there, it would be somewhat necessary to include all that information, but on the conditions that they are cited with valid sources. Continuing to bickering with another staff about this situation will not get your anywhere, it's going to get you resentment. Take this as a user that didn't know much and was banned permanently for a while on Super Mario Wiki. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 12:41, May 14, 2021 (EDT)
I don't see a problem with discussing the situation like this. Discussion is certainly better than edit-warring/continuing to add questionable content. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:56, May 14, 2021 (EDT)
Agreed with Drago. While I don't think this information should be added, I'm only one person and I do not speak for the whole wiki. I would recommend starting a proposal at the Community Fountain to gain consensus. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 13:00, May 14, 2021 (EDT)
Yeah a proposal should be a best idea rather than continuing a string of discussion over the removal of content. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 13:01, May 14, 2021 (EDT)
I've made the proposal. --Dr. Peach (talk) 16:21, May 14, 2021 (EDT)

Sweetfish Error

Just wanted to point out that there appears to be an error on the Sweetfish page regarding times of day on Wild World and City Folk, I attempted to fix it in a few ways but can't quite figure out what the error is. Just wanted to let you know, thanks! :)

--Zucker2008 10th June 10:01 (EDT)

I've fixed the error; thanks for pointing it out! ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 14:26, June 10, 2021 (EDT)

Sorry if I'm disturbing you, but there appears to be an error with all the other fish in Wild World, if you want me to attempt to fix this myself please let me know! Edit I'll fix the months, but the times aren't working in the same way so I'd appreciate it if you fixed that. Edit 2: Never mind, forget I said all that. I just went through every single fish in the game and fixed all of the unknown times and months. I'd also like to let you know, the time boxes for the bugs in Wild World don't contain much info and are smaller and green, I'm not sure if they're supposed to be like that. Can you please confirm it for me?

--Zucker2008 11th June 08:35 (EDT)

We're working on a spreadsheet pertaining to Wild World, I'm sure we'll confirm the data regarding Wild World critters. For now, refer to this page for the bug info. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 04:46, June 11, 2021 (EDT)

Thanks for that! :)


Thank you, AlexBot2004, for fixing the Sweetfish, I only managed to fix the Animal Crossing: Wild World fish because I had your two lines as a template. Thanks again,

--Zucker2008 09:23, June 14, 2021 (EDT)


Just a quick question, is there a page which shows all the coding functions? If there is, can you please leave a reply with the link to the page in it?

--Zucker2008 10:45, June 11, 2021 (EDT)

Museum editing

Yo! With the ol’ abyss tank page that I created and you deleted, I thought that I could of set up some links to each individual tank. Also, with the fish section of the article in question, there is an error with the organizing. The saltwater tanks are NOT organized by fish size. Barreleye fish aren’t large, and hammerhead sharks aren’t small or medium. The tanks are organized by depth. I can and will edit this on my own, I just felt I should point it out.Barreleye (talk) 18:16, June 14, 2021 (EDT)

You keep removing my trivia on the Animal City page for no reason.

Would You please stop removing my triva on the Animal City page for no reason. - unsigned comment from Trj2009 (talkcontribs)

Its's being removed, because it's already mentioned in the article. There isn't a reason to mention it again. ~ Vivian (talk) Vivian DnMe+ Minigame.png 10:45, August 4, 2021 (EDT)

Villager opening paragraph

Instead of removing the definition in opening paragraph, why not put them into Names in other languages section? Not many people can find the definition of their name. It would make reading easier. If that was discussed, where is the discussion? CuteDolphin712 (talk) 00:03, October 15, 2021 (EDT)

Niko is a monkey BECAUSE he is a langur

With all due respect, insisting that the only way I can prove that Niko is a monkey is to get consensus on Discord is unfair, because I don't use Discord and never will. But the fact remains, Niko should be classified as a monkey because he is one, that much is obvious. We don't create the alternate "Poodle" species for Harriet (since she is still a dog), so claiming that Niko isn't a monkey, when as a langur he is automatically one, really doesn't make sense. And don't bring up the bird argument, that's completely different - "birds" are songbirds primarily. 16:46, October 18, 2021 (EDT)

1. I never insisted or even requested that you use Discord join in wiki discussions; that's merely where that particular discussion took place. You are free to use and create talk pages on the wiki.
2. I'm not a zoologist, but some quick research shows that the gray langur is its own genus; "monkey" isn't a species or even genus but rather a catch-all term for all simians. All breeds of dogs on the other hand are all part of the same species.
3. Regardless of the science, on the wiki we use official terminology from Nintendo when available, and on the official site for Happy Home Paradise, Niko is called a "gray langur". ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 00:03, October 19, 2021 (EDT)
In addition to what AlexBot2004 said, I think another point to make is that Porter and the Monkey villagers are more of a general representation of monkeys, whereas Niko's species is clearly supposed to be of a specific type of monkey. Listing Niko's species as "Monkey" when his specific species has been officially confirmed would be no different than listing Shrunk's species as "Salamander" or Nat and Flick's species as "Lizard". Yes, it's technically correct, but it's absolutely ridiculous and completely unnecessary when the evidence is available.

Name meaning speculation

Hi! You removed my edit from Marlo's page, about the possible reference to Marlon Brando. No hard feelings obviously, as it wasn't even my own suggestion initially! I'm mostly curious: I feel like a lot of names' meanings across the board are speculation. Where is the line drawn? Has Nintendo released confirmations of those in the past? For example, Petri's page suggests that their name comes from Julius Richard Petri, based on their appearance - how is that different from Marlo's possible reference to Marlon Brando, given that their appearance and Japanese name seem to reference the mafia?

Thanks for your input! Ninjan (talk) 01:01, October 19, 2021 (EDT)

There is no official policy on where to draw the line on potential name origins, but I generally draw it at pop culture references. For villagers who seem to be named after historical figures like Petri, I feel it's more safe to assume where their name came from than those potentially based on pop culture. That's just my opinion though, and I would be curious to know how others feel about it. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 08:35, October 19, 2021 (EDT)
Thanks for explaining! Though I understand why you would draw that line there, I feel like The Godfather is such a renowned film that a reference to it is likely to be included in a Japanese game. Due to Marlo's Japanese name and design, I think this possibility should definitely be discussed. That is my personal input of course, and I guess you'll see if other users agree with it!

How old are you - unsigned comment from Ra1nb0wCan4ys (talkcontribs)

Star sign

Hey so, I tried to edit the star sign page in order to add sections for villagers that used to have a different zodiac in older games, but I think I made a bit of a mess. Can you fix it please? AnnieCat07 (talk) 02:21, November 20, 2021 (EST)

A question

Hi, I wrote that pharagraph about the glitch whit Franklin in the Gamecube game, might I ask you why did you remove that section? It even seemed to me that the summary that you made to what I wrote was well done and looked better with the other glitches that are explained in fewer paragraphs. I also consider that that does count as a glitch since it is something that probably goes against what the developers wanted to happen with the game. I do not understand why it would be necessary for that to be eliminated. (I hope this is how you actually leave questions here, I edited the page to ad this.😬) - unsigned comment from 2800:150:148:3016:5C71:C776:FAAD:5F9E (talkcontribs)

It actually wasn't removed; it was moved above some other sections. It was also reworded to be more clear (you can see it here). ~ Vivian (talk) Vivian Sig Pic.png 23:41, November 26, 2021 (EST)


Maybe I didn’t word it properly but in the event of getting bad luck if you don’t have the bells to undo it on you at the time it can’t be undone at all. Even if you go back to her after. That is what I was trying to say. Is that still redundant?I haven’t done wiki editing in a very long time so I’m incredibly rusty. -2601:54A:302:9DC0:0:0:0:D9 06:39, December 1, 2021 (EST)
