Animal Crossing is PEOPLE! No, really! Theorists, this may be one of the most unexpected theories I've put out recently, but once you see it, you will never unsee it. I have gathered TONS of evidence that our player character is only SEEING the villagers of Animal Crossing as animals. They are not, in fact, ACTUAL talking, anthropomorphic animals. Have I said the word animals enough yet? Well get ready Loyal Theorists, I am about to blow your mind! Animals!

  • Okay but my neighbors often refer to me as "human," or call me "human" a whole lot, so if they themselves are actually human, why would so many of them refer to my character, a human, as if I'm different than them if we're the same? (Animal crossing new horizons)

  • 11:00 it used to be possible to understand them! Unlike in new horizons, the first AC would pronounce the names of letters EXACTLY when it would say it when you typed them so when they would come up as someone talked, if if you listened closely and could proccess the letters you where hearing to words as fast as they where coming out, which isnt as easy as it sounds, you could understand them...saved a lot of time for me instead of reading lol i havent played any of them between first and NH tho so i dunno if its possible in those ones

  • This video I disagree with The reason is that In the tailor shop the sister that sees all the time says “I worry about you not having a fur during the winter” Or something around those lines but I know for a fact she mentions fur So technically they are animals Also maybe there mutated Like how in mha 80% of the population So maybe a certain % of people are mutated animals also like the movie “Kipo” on Netflix I know those series had nothing to do with animal crossing but all three have mutated characters I would like to say that I love your channel and all your thousands of others I hope you see this and keep doing what your doing 👍🏽 That’s all I wanted to say Btw I would love if u liked the comment so I could see that you read this and I didn’t waist my time

  • Sometimes the villagers do, in fact, comment to you when another player changes their appearance. Like how they'll say things such as, "I heard so-and-so was hitting rocks with a shovel!" they'll also remark on players changing what they look like.

  • Doesn't the Zipper T. Bunny being the character's father theory contradict this though? The character's father having to dress up to disguise himself among animals wouldn't make sense if the character already sees everyone as animals.

  • Mat, a couple more from the medical perspective: your character's eyes are always looking in one direction regardless of which way you face, which could be what's called oculogyric crisis, caused by antipsychotic medications. Your character could be here on the island after failed treatment with antipsychotics. Also, the Nook Shop sells a world map, which resembles our own. So we know that this isn't some fairy tale world, it's our world.

  • This is your most farfetched theory yet and definitely your first video I'm disliking. Animal crossing is a kids game, the main character doesn't have a super rare mental disorder, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard, next thing you're going to say is that gorons in breath of the wild are secretly link's hallucinations and that they are actually just inanimate objects. This theory is terrible.
