One of the most beloved elements of the Animal Crossing series is the vast treasure trove of unique villagers and personalities waiting to be uncovered. However, with nearly four hundred different animals available as potential neighbors in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, keeping track of them all — with their varying personalities, birthdays, likes and dislikes — can be quite a task.

The quickest way to your neighbors' hearts is to know their birthdays, styles, and favorite colors. Finding items that correspond to these traits and giving them as gifts is the fastest way to grow your friendships - but it can take quite a bit of time, trial and error to determine these things on your own. For those inclined to speed things up a bit - and win the fast favor of their animal acquaintances - we've got a complete guide to villager virtues below...

What does 'Uchi' mean?

The word 'uchi' is used to describe a specific personality trait in Animal Crossing.

The Japanese word has several meanings — 'home' or 'inside', for example — but in the context of Animal Crossing, 'uchi' relates to a personal pronoun popular with young Japanese girls (and used by these characters in the Japanese version of the game).

The personality is labelled 'Big Sister' in the official guide, and Nookipedia calls this type 'sisterly'. So there you are!
