Worst Animal Crossing Villagers of all time

These villagers can stay far away from my island!

Animal Crossing is nothing without its quirky and interesting-looking Villagers. And just as there are Villagers who everyone seems to love—such as Roald or Ketchup—there are also those Villagers who virtually no one likes. This is a list of the worst villagers in Animal Crossing. 


Rocket does not have a lot going for her. Gorillas are not a fan-favorite Villager type, to begin with. Combine that with that pink jumpsuit and lipstick, and the result is less than favorable. Lastly, with a catchphrase like “vroom,” it just seemed like Rocket was going to be disliked from the start.

If Barold’s beard and pink lips didn’t scare you off, the tiger-print shirt should have definitely raised some flags. His peculiar fashion choices aside, his interior design style is just plain weird, choosing to decorate his home to look like an office, complete with a desk and copier. Creepiest of all, his wallpaper is security monitors! Which just makes you feel as though he is watching your every move.

There's something about Cobb that really makes you uneasy. It's probably those big yellow goggles that make him look like a mad scientist. His catchphrase is “hot dog,” which just seems very on-the-mark for a mad pig scientist. Plus, if all that wasn’t bad enough, he comes off as very self-centered and dense.

Ricky was dealt a bad hand. With a face like that, how is anyone supposed to like you? Ricky has a cranky face and a crankier personality to go with it. It is hard to like a Villager who looks agitated at all times and says things like, “You gotta break a few shells to get to the nut.”

Finally, we get to Rodney. I think everyone can agree that Rodney is the absolute worst. There is even an entire subreddit dedicated solely to spreading the word of hate about Rodney. I mean, that face just screams smugness. What's more—for some reason—he is unusually aggressive. It's almost like he is Animal Crossing’s version of an “internet troll.” Even if you were looking for a smug Villager, there are definitely better options out there than Rodney.
