How to get Ruby to move to your island in Animal Crossing New Horizons

There are three ways to get Ruby to move to your island in Animal Crossing New Horizons:

  • Visit other islands and convince her to move to your island when you find her.
  • Purchase her Amiibo Card and she will instantly move to your island.
  • Wait for her to visit your campsite and convince her to stay.

The only guaranteed (and fast) way to get Ruby to move to your island is to purchase her Amiibo Card and scan it into the game. Her card appeared in Series 2 of the Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards collection.

Of course, the problem with this method is that Amiibo Cards are sold at random in packs of three, so it could become quite expensive. Another option is to purchase one second-hand on a website like eBay.

If you don’t want to spend money, the alternative methods are to wait for her to visit your island or find her while visiting other islands, but this could take months as there are hundreds of villagers to go through.

How to increase friendship with Ruby in Animal Crossing New Horizons

One of the best ways to increase your friendship level with Ruby is to give her gifts that are Cute or Active in Pink or Light Blue. Talking often and completing requests will also improve your friendship.

Ruby has the ‘peppy’ personality trait, which makes her easy to become friends with. She will get along with lazy, normal, jock, sisterly, and other peppy villagers, but may clash with cranky and snooty villagers.

Some other things worth noting: Ruby’s birthday is on Christmas Day (December 25); her favorite songs are KK Ska, Space KK, and Stale Cupcakes; and her hobby is nature.
