Animal Crossing amiibo: the ultimate guide

An overview of every Animal Crossing amiibo figure, with details about what they each do.

As Animal Crossing: New Horizons receives its new update and Switch owners flock back to the islands that they abandoned a few months ago, many of us will also be looking at our Animal Crossing amiibo collections. With the new amiibo phone in the Roost, you can invite characters to come and join you for a coffee, bringing their own quirky character interactions with them.

Whether you want to use them for that, or, like Blathers, you just enjoy having a collection of cute critters to interact with, there’s no denying that amiibo figures are pretty popular. With Animal Crossing in particular, there are a lot of amiibo and it can be hard to keep up with them all. So, for your convenience, we’ve made this handy guide to all of the Animal Crossing amiibo figures, including details about the functionality of each one.

For the sake of brevity, we’re intentionally not going to cover all of the amiibo cards, because there are now hundreds of them, but this is a comprehensive list of all the figures that are currently available to buy. Whether you’re looking to patch the gaps in your collection or are just curious to see what your favourite character’s amiibo can do, we hope this guide will be helpful.

Here is every Animal Crossing amiibo figure in alphabetical order. Please note that we have not mentioned generic amiibo functionality for games like Skyrim or Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity where any amiibo will generate a non-specific reward. All the features mentioned below are examples of amiibo functionality that give you something directly related to the series, or at least, to Animal Crossing in general.

Blathers

Of course the entomophobic museum curator has his own amiibo! It’s hard not to like this absent-minded owl, and if you love collecting amiibo just as much as you love collecting bugs, fish, fossils and paintings, you’ll want to get your hands on a Blathers amiibo.

You can’t give something to one sibling and not the other. Blathers’ younger sister, the accomplished astronomer, Celeste, is another of the special characters that you can add to your amiibo collection.

Cyrus

This alpaca is quite the handyman. Many of us first met him as he was sleeping on the job in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and then, later, in New Horizons, we were shooting his wedding photos. How touching. If you don’t want to wait for wedding season to roll around, the Cyrus amiibo will give you a chance to see the character whenever you want.

Digby

It’s Isabelle’s twin brother: Digby! Though he is somewhat overshadowed by his sister’s popularity, he still managed to get his own amiibo figure. He played a pretty big role in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, where you worked alongside him at the Happy Home Academy. Unfortunately, he has yet to appear in New Horizons and it doesn’t look as though he will be added in future (though Isabelle has mentioned him).

The Digby amiibo unlocks the following game features:

  • Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer: you can decorate Digby’s home.
  • Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival: Digby can be unlocked as a playable character.

Isabelle (Summer)

Since her debut in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Isabelle has grown to be so popular that at this point, she’s arguably the most iconic character in the series (surpassing even K. K. or Tom Nook).

Isabelle (Winter)

Isabelle’s second amiibo is her in her winter outfit and this one was released a little while after Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival to give players who didn’t want to buy amiibo Festival a chance to own an Isabelle amiibo and in addition to just releasing what had already been bundled with amiibo Festival, they created a new Isabelle varient. Outside of Super Mario Maker, the functionality remains the same as her summer counterpart:

Isabelle (Smash Bros.)

As a reflection of Isabelle’s popularity, it’s no surprise that she is one of only two Animal Crossing characters who are playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. To tie in with her inclusion in this game, a dedicated Isabelle Smash Bros. amiibo was released, which depicts Isabelle as she appears in her Smash Bros. render.

Thus far, this newer Isabelle amiibo unlocks all the same things as the Summer Isbelle:

K.K. Slider

This soulful, musical dog has charmed many an Animal Crossing fan with his wonderful late night concerts. A part of the series since its humble beginnings as a Japan-exclusive Nintendo 64 game, it is no surprise that K. K. has been immortalised as an amiibo.

We first met Kicks back in Animal Crossing: City Folk (a.k.a. Let’s Go to the City) where he was a simple shoe-shine boy, then he opened up his own shoe shop in New Leaf, before venturing out to sell shoes on the road in New Horizon. We’re sure many of you will have encountered him at this point.

Mabel

Who’s the first character you think of when someone mentions an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog? Well, it’s probably Sonic, but I bet Mabel is the second. It’s hard to dislike this friendly tailor from the Able Sisters shop.

Resetti

Oh no… I think I forgot to save last time I played. That means Resetti is going to come and give me a verbal lashing. Wait, what? Oh, he’s been fired. That’s why he didn’t show up (not properly anyway) in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Huh. Poor guy. Still, at least he got his own amiibo.

Rover

For many of us, Rover was the first Animal Crossing character we ever met, riding the rails all those years ago. Since then, Rover has popped up in some capacity in every Animal Crossing game.

Timmy and Tommy

Fun fact: Timmy and Tommy are not actually Tom Nook’s children. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, they will confide in you that though many wrongly assume them to be his descendants, they are actually just two young racoons that work for him for 14 hours a day, seven days a week… Still, they don’t complain and at least they seem to manage the shop on their own now.

Undoubtedly part of the 1%, Tom Nook got where he is today through hard work and just a touch of exploitive child labour.

Villager

Villager was the first ever Animal Crossing amiibo. Made to coincide with the character’s appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, it is so far the only amiibo figure made of any human characters in the series – presumably because of the near infinite variety that surrounds them! The amiibo is used in fairly different ways to some of the others.

  • Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer: unlocks a golden Villager statue.
  • Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival: unlocks a golden Villager statue.
