Okay, okay. I know what you’re thinking. How on earth can you rank the Animal Crossing New Horizons villagers in a tier list? Well gosh darn, I’ll tell you how. By sheer coolness. And by coolness, I mean the general aura they give off. The type of aura that just says: “Yes, I’m cool. You like my presence and will never want me off your island.” 

This is how we’re going to rank our villagers. Now I’d like to make an observation, there are in fact 418 villagers in Animal Crossing New Horizons. And sadly, I don’t have the time nor patience to put each and every villager through some kind of personality test to judge them. Instead, I’ll be judging them on their popularity and coolness. So in S-tier we’ll see those who are so cool that they outshine us and we’re the ones lucky to be in their presence. While those in D-tier are just sad to look at and you don’t want to be seen breathing next to. 

Yes, I realise that’s harsh but some villagers just permeate an aura of nastiness. That being said, if you don’t see one of your favourites on the list at all, then that’s okay too. Any of those not on this list are neither cool nor repugnant, they’re just okay! 

  • S-Tier: The coolest and they know it. 
  • A-Tier: A great person who’s just cool to be around, they don’t make it all about them. 
  • B-Tier: They’re fine, they don’t really try hard but they’re still neat.
  • C-Tier: Just boring, they don’t try to be cool and it shows. 
  • D-Tier: They’re trying far too hard and it’s just backfired, they’re awful to be around. 


  • Ankha

Ankha knows that she’s too important for you. But that’s not going to stop us from wanting to be her best friend. Please, we just want to be your friend. 

  • Audie

This red wolf is just a joy to be around, she can be a little rude sometimes but she’s that kind of friend who just brings out the inner-girlboss in you. 

  • Olaf

He’s a Prince tribute, right? Of course he’s going to be cool cause he’s pulling it off. 

  • Phoebe

Phoebe is the stylish big sister we all wanted. Also, as a female peacock with bright plumage, Phoebe might be the LGBTQ+ advocate we all wanted. 

  • Pietro

Pietro constantly wears clown-gear and it’s not even his full-time job. He just chooses to do that, and if that doesn’t exude confidence, I don’t know what will. 

  • Eugene

No explanation necessary. 

A Tier

  • Zucker 

This lil guy is a real treat (get it?) and it’s no wonder he’s so popular. Furthermore, he’s just a cool lil octopus, who doesn’t even realise it.

  • Soleil 

Soleil doesn’t have all the time in the world, she knows that. But if you show her you’re worth her time, she’ll be lovely and chill to be around. 

  • Roscoe

With a name like Roscoe you can’t not be a cool dude. But he doesn’t even know… 

  • Apollo

He’s just so cool and he doesn’t even act like he is. 

  • T-Bone

There’s some power-move in choosing a name that just objectifies you as meat. All the power to you, Bestie. 

  • Flip

I once saw Flip singing and dancing on his own at like 4:00AM in the town square. Kind of cool. 

B Tier

Coco Animal Crossing 3

  • Beardo

You’d think with a name like Beardo, the beard would be a bit more grand and amazing. Instead, it’s very… plain. 

  • Coco

I’ll be honest, Coco scares me. She’s neat but her eyes… empty and frightening pits. 

  • Diana

Diana is very pretty, granted. But she’s also not all up in your face about it, nor is she demanding you kiss her feet. She’s a nice average. 

  • Lionel

Pretty sure Lionel owns some kind of fried chicken restaurant. 

  • Melba

The cutest lil’ dumpling ever, she’s perfectly normal. Not amazingly cool but not dull either, the perfect middle ground. 

C Tier

  • Barold

Barold needs to re-evaluate his looks and change something. HE looks like he would never leave his room that smells of sweat. 

  • Klaus

If anyone came up to me in a full roman emperor outfit and expected me to treat him seriously, I’d cringe. 

D Tier

  • Stinky

Bestie, you are wearing underpants on your head and you are called Stinky. It’s time to re-think everything. 

  • Tiffany 

Tiffany, we live on a deserted island and you’re treating this village like your kingdom. Sorry, we already have a Queen, an Egyptian kitty in S tier.

  • Raymond

Raymond, you wanted to move out of the big city to island life. Just chill out and kick your feet back. 

  • Derwin

I don’t think Derwin can ever stand up for himself and would just back down to anything. Stand up for yourself, Derwin. 

  • Graham

I’ll be honest. I worry that Graham spends most his free time on 4Chan and has a God-complex.

    Raymond where he belongs on the bottom and Ankha on top, a perfect list
