Changing Catchphrases

Changing Catchphrases Animal Crossing

Some players may doesn’t like the Animal Crossing Catchphrase that is given to them. They try to change their catchphrases and find it very hard since they don’t know how to change their Animal Crossing Catchphrases. Some players also believe that when there are hundreds of catchphrases out there, why don’t we try hard to get our favorite one.

In Animal Crossing

If you are playing in the Gamecube Version and wish to change the Animal Crossing Catchphrase, then a villager can approach the player to change it. And the interesting fact is you have the opportunity to use another villager’s catchphrase upon talking to them. In case if the player accepts and changes the catchphrase, then it cannot be over ten letters or a swear word.

In Wild World

If you are in the Wild World and then wish to change the Animal Crossing Catchphrase, you must either adopt another villager’s catchphrase or ask the player for a change. The process of asking for a new Catchphrase is looking at them and showing what they want by an exclamation mark appearing over the head.

Then, it is followed by the villager walking up to the player or simply follow them. But the problem here is that the players will not have the attention of the villagers on all occasions. But once you get their attention, it becomes easy for you to change your Animal Crossing Catchphrase.

In City Folk

Like the Wild World, Animal Crossing Catchphrase can be changed by following the villager or asking the players to change. And you have another option too, and a player can also go to the Town Hall and ask Pelly or Phyllis in asking for a change in villagers’ catchphrase by selecting the option that asks if it is “rude.” You could notice that the catchphrase would be changed to one among the following catchphrases,” yup yup,” “yessiree,” “you know,” and “right.”

In New Leaf

You have two options to change your catchphrase at this level. One follows the same process of following and asking the players as you did in the above two levels. Or you can also choose to change by speaking to Isabelle at the Town Hall and then reporting the character’s language as offensive.

If two villagers are singing together, you could easily figure out that they both have changed their Animal Crossing catchphrase.

In New Horizons

A villager who wishes to change their Animal Crossing Catchphrase can walk slowly to the villager and have a thought balloon above their head. This method can be adopted for some other reasons too, like if you wish to sell a product and so on. A villager’s catchphrase will not get transferred if they were adopted from another island.

And if you change the language of the game, then the entire villagers’ catchphrase gets reset. You can also adopt player-created catchphrases from other villagers. Or the unique way of changing catchphrases is if a villager with a friendship level 4 or up can prompt a player to come up with a new catchphrase for them. 

Preventions Against Changing a Catchphrase
