Sunniness

The Player and Portia performing the Sunniness emotion in New Leaf

Emotions are effects used by both players and villagers in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. In Animal Crossing, only villagers could perform emotions. Emotions reappear in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, with more than ever before available for players to perform.

Villagers' Emotions

In all games, aside from expressing emotions when in conversation, villagers may also show an emotion when walking about town. Villagers may express up to seven different emotions outside of conversation.

  • Sadness
    • Expressed by a dark purple cloud over the villager's head, with a faint rumbling noise, as well as a change in posture while walking. May be induced by the player or other villagers.
  • Sickness
    • Expressed by a dark purple cloud over the villager's head, with a faint rumbling noise as well as shivering and sneezing. Sick villagers will always be found inside their own homes.
  • Anger
    • Expressed by a villager's head turning red and releasing white puffs of smoke, as well as a change in posture while walking. May be induced by the player or other villagers.
  • Glee
    • Expressed by the villager singing and skipping. In New Leaf , villagers often sing the Town Tune while joyful. May be induced by the player or other villagers.
  • Realization
    • Expressed by an exclamation mark appearing over the villagers head, and by the villager approaching the player eagerly. In this case the villager would like to speak with the player.
  • Delight
    • May be expressed by clapping when the player catches an insect or fish near a villager, or when watching fireworks.
  • Shock
    • Expressed by a yellow shock mark appearing over the villager's head, accompanied by a piano crashing noise. Typically occurs when the player catches a piece of trash or gets trapped in a pitfall, the latter case leading to the villager sweating in distress until the player gets free.
  • Thought
    • Expressed by villagers reading the Bulletin Board, planting flowers, after having a conversation with another villager, or when villagers have been talked to repeatedly. While expressing this emotion, villagers tilt their head and put their hand to their chin. In some cases, a thought bubble with three dots ("...") may also appear above the villager's head. Villagers in thought cannot be talked to without a delay.

The degree and frequency of the emotions expressed often depends on the villager's personality type. Sad villagers usually sob, especially Lazy villagers. Cranky villagers rarely get sad, as well as Snooty villagers. When Cranky villagers get sad, they think that they live in a cold world. Angry villagers often yell at the villager or even the player. Jock villagers would often call the player 'scrawny' if they get mad. Cranky villagers are said to yell the loudest, even louder than Resetti. Lazy villagers rarely get angry.

If a villager is pushed or hit three times with a net they express either the sad or mad emotion depending on their personality.

In New Leaf, when a player performs an emotion in front of a villager or special character, they will also do an emotion as well. Exceptions to this include Sable, Grams and K.K..

        

Learning Emotions

In Wild World , the player can get emotions from Dr. Shrunk in a random encounter with him when he is walking around the village. After the player learns an emotion for the first time, the emotions menu can be accessed by clicking on the purple shadow Rover speech bubble tab.

In City Folk, Dr. Shrunk is found in the city's theater, where emotions can be learned for 800 bells. He is sometimes replaced by Frillard, who teaches emotions unknown to Dr. Shrunk. The player can store up to four emotions at any time. Emotions can be deleted to obtain different ones. After receiving an emotion for the first time, that emotion as well as others learned afterwards will be available at the top left of the screen.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, players can get emotions easier than before. After  Club LOL is build in the town, the player can start to learn emotions from Dr. Shrunk. By bringing fruit to Dr. Shrunk in Club LOL before 8pm, while K.K. Slider is not doing his party, Shrunk will perform emotions on stage for the player to learn. There are a total of 40 emotions in New Leaf, which can be accessed via the menu at the bottom of the screen. Unlike previous games, all 40 emotions may be acquired and stored without having to delete any. 

-- The "Close" emotion from Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk can only be obtained by hacking. The icon looks like the "Anger" emotion, but every time the icon is clicked, the player shows a different emotion each time in a random pattern. Emotions shown by the player can be any of which, including those taught by Frillard.

Trivia

  • In Animal Crossing: Wild World the first emotion the player would always get upon meeting Dr. Shrunk was Shyness.
  • When Animal Crossing: City Folk came out the emotion called Shyness was renamed to Bashfulness.
  • In Animal Crossing: New Leaf Shyness and Bashfulness are two different emotions.
  • Because the emotion Sneezing was not available until New Leaf, past games compensated by using the emotion that looked the most like a sneeze, which was Anger, and the "Achoo" vocalization was thrown overtop of that to make it sound like one.
  • Realization was changed to Surprise in New Leaf
  • Once learning all of the Jokes from Dr. Shrunk, the player's last learned emotion will be the Shrunk Funk Shuffle, and at the end of his preformance, the Player will recieve his old uniform towards the end, it will say: "Ha! I've filled all the pages of my joke book. Now I'm a certifiable emotion comedian at last!"
  • Some characters such as Labelle or Gracie will sometimes smile, and not repeat any emotion like Flourish, or Pride
