One Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan has discovered an incredibly fun and cute trait that makes frog villagers stand out from every other kind of villager. Frogs are iconic to Animal Crossing, even if the most notable reason is because of the Froggy Chair. However, it is still nice for the developers to put in a small detail that reflects how frogs interact with their environments.
With how many villagers there are in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, many players will have varying experiences befriending whoever decides to reside on the island. As players get to know them, it is natural to discover little quirks that help them stand out from others, making it easy to form an attachment to the island and its inhabitants that only grow in subtle ways as the player checks in day by day.
A quirk that stands out is that frog villagers love the rain, something discovered recently by Reddit user LunarIslands. They posted a screenshot of their character with a villager named Puddles showing both of them in the rain without a hat or parasol and captioned it by asking if frogs generally do not wear them. Top comments responding to the post have stated that frog villagers love standing in the rain, showing that this is just one of the many tiny details added to help differentiate the villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Many other comments were from users who gushed about Puddles, citing her as either their best friend on the island or simply thinking of her as their favorite villager. Another pointed out that frog villagers also do not mind receiving frogs as gifts and that while someone can also gift them umbrellas, it isn’t a gift they will like as much as others, which makes sense since umbrellas are useless to them. Given the love shown to Puddles and the frog villagers, it reveals that despite receiving its last major content update in 2021, Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to be adored by its fans.
This adoration does mean that a lot is riding on the next Animal Crossing to live up to the emotional attachment many feel toward New Horizons along with expanding on what made that title successful. Whatever the future does hold for the series, at least now, fans of frog villagers like Puddles can take a stroll with their favorite amphibians under the soothing rain.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now for Nintendo Switch.
