5 of the funniest catchphrases in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The villagers of Animal Crossing: New Horizons each have their own unique set of idiosyncrasies, including some very weird (and very funny) catchphrases. 

Throughout your interactions with characters in the Animal Crossing series, you’ll see some of the funniest catchphrases in New Horizons. Game after game, some faces stay the same, but new potential neighbors keep popping into our virtual lives. They all have their own personalities, likes, and dislikes as well as catchphrases. Some are odd, some are heartwarming, and others are downright hilarious.


Though catchphrases may be changed (and some may be adopted by other villagers), it’s so much more fun to leave them exactly as-is. Because we love interacting with each and every unique character that we meet in-game just like you do, we thought it’d be fun to put together a list of some of the funniest catchphrases in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Ranging from fun to outright puzzling, here are five of the best.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons' villagers includes Aurora, who has a very unique phrase.

Aurora’s catchphrase is reminiscent of a chilly little penguin.

Aurora is a little penguin friend who’s a bit timid, and this nervous phrase fits perfectly with this chill little chick . She’s seemingly freezing, and as such her catchphrase is “baby,” but it comes out as “b-b-baby.” As a normal villager, she doesn’t have a particular affectation in terms of her personality, but it sure is cute and giggle-inducing to think she’s standing there shivering every time she says her catchphrase.


It also raises a serious question: aren’t penguins used to the cold weather? And why is Aurora so cold standing in the middle of an island paradise? Maybe she’s just gotten so acclimated to being in the cold that this phrase simply comes naturally to her now. Either way, it always puts a smile on our faces.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Bob is a fan favorite.

Bob’s catchphrase is unintelligible, but so him.

Everyone loves Bob. But what’s up with his catchphrase, “pthhpth”? We’re going to go out on a limb here and go by the old Animal Crossing E-reader card (thanks, Animal Crossing Wiki!) and say it’s because he tends to spit a lot when he talks. That doesn’t make trying to say this bit of onomatopoeia any less hilarious.

This lazy purple cat drifts around town with half-closed eyes and loves to chill out. But we lose all our chill every time we get into conversation with this cool dude and he, well, spits on us. Or he’s coughing up a hairball. It’s hard to say.



Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Broccolo has a very different kind of catchphrase.
Is Broccolo telling you to eat the tunic? Probably.

Broccolo is one gluttonous little mouse, and that at least partially explains his uproarious catchphrase “eat it”. But it definitely doesn’t make things any less awkward then you’re trying to have a conversation with this little guy. Uh, no, Broccolo, we don’t want to eat anything you command us to.

This food-loving mouse can’t get enough of napping and eating, but he may as well be a comedian with a few well-timed uses of “eat it” in his lexicon. And while Animal Crossing is nothing but innocent and wholesome, this phrase of course does take on a bit of a naughty connotation in the right context.



Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Coco is just a little bit weird.

Where did Coco even get this phrase from?

Coco is pretty creepy, so adding the phrase “doyoing” makes her a little more approachable. She looks a little strange, but that weird catchphrase kind of reminds us of the gyroids of older Animal Crossing games. Either way, it’s such a weird phrase that we can’t help but giggle when it comes up.

It’s also a word that’s so unlike all the rest of the villagers’ catchphrases that you really have to wonder why it’s thrown in with the rest of the mix. Either way, it’s a laugh riot, especially when you aren’t expecting it. Doyoing!



Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Tammy can be rude.
YouTube: Captain Trucide
Tammy isn’t playing anymore, ya heard?!

Could this sisterly cub villager named Tammy actually be one of the sassiest of all? She might look lazy and laid back, but she can go from 0-to-100 quicker than the blink of an eye, ya heard? Yes, “ya heard?” is her catchphrase, and we’d honestly have it no other way.

Tammy talks tough, and it shows, especially if you start bullying her. Maybe it’s the fact that she likes to stay up late at night, but she’s always wound up and ready to speak her mind. Just don’t get her around any snooty or cranky villagers who like to spread rumors. Or do just that, because we love to laugh at these crazy animals.

An Animal Crossing YouTuber went viral after re-creating The Simpsons’ iconic intro in New Horizons. The player’s incredible mashup is one of the best things you’ll see today.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons took the world by storm after making its debut in March. The latest release in the long-running franchise introduced new features such as the ability to shape your village however you see fit using terraforming.


The new mechanic has sparked the imaginations of millions of users on social media, and one creator went viral after using the tool to bring The Simpsons to the social-simulation title. Their re-imagination of the classic cartoon’s intro is the perfect crossover.

The Simpsons made its debut in 1989, and has gone on to become a juggernaut in pop culture over the last three decades. In 2020, the animation is in its 31st season. To celebrate, a player re-created the show’s intro in New Horizons.


Gaming YouTuber ‘Great-Bit Arcade‘ uploaded their mind blowing creation to their channel on July 29, and quickly went viral. The video carefully re-creates the animation’s iconic intro, which follows the Simpson family throughout their town of Springfield.

The fan creatively used assets from Animal Crossing to create the town’s nuclear plant, before hilariously cutting to their character writing on a chalk board in school while wearing Bart Simpson’s signature outfit.

Great-Bit’s video meticulously recreates every scene, from Maggie and Marge driving to Lisa playing her saxophone in school. The YouTuber even created a couch gag with the Simpson family walking in to find Tom Nook and Isabelle taking up all the space on their sofa.


Animal Crossing’s latest release has been a major success for Nintendo. In a quarterly report posted in August, it was revealed the social simulation title has sold over 22.4 million units – making it the second highest-selling game on the console.

New Horizons’ terraforming tool has encouraged players from around the world to share their creations on social media. Fans have reimagined things from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away to Avatar: The Last Airbender using the game’s new feature.
