Clovers are a sub-type of weed introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World, and later appearing in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Like typical weeds, players can pluck them from the ground or dig them out with a shovel. However, unlike weeds, they do not bring negative effects to the village if left alone, similar to dandelions. Clovers vary in color depending on the time of year in the town.
Lucky clovers are rare, having an approximate 1 in 40 chance of spawning in place of a regular clover. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf they are much more difficult to obtain. When one is placed in a house as furniture, it appears as an open book, with the clover used as a bookmark. It will also act as a lucky item, and give the player 7,777 points towards their Happy Room Academy score. This was removed in New Leaf. It can also be worn in the player's hair, boosting luck. Four leaf clovers are traditionally associated with good luck, a superstition that is also voiced by the player.
- When you get 7,777 points towards your HRA score, it is a reference to how 7 is a lucky number.
