Animal Crossing: New Horizons Villager Hilariously Blocks Player Trying to Renovate Their Island

Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives its players the freedom to change their homes as well as their islands. Players can place their items almost anywhere, decide where each villager lives, and even create or destroy rivers and cliffs. Sometimes however, as shown by one Animal Crossing: New Horizons player, villagers can perfectly get in the way.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a social simulation game and the fifth major installment in the series. In it, players start their adventure on a relatively untamed island and, through time and advancement, unlock abilities to shape it. Aside from the two villagers that players start off with, this game allows for up to a total of 10 villagers on this island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.


A short clip by u/jackiiiee1 should be easily relatable for any Animal Crossing: New Horizons player who has attempted to create paths. The video starts off with the player removing a tree and then proceeding to lay stone paths around the area. Clearly, the goal here is to replace all the grass in the area to create a central stone area for villagers to enjoy.

Unfortunately, just as u/jackiiiee1 gets down to one spot left to place the path, their villager Margie begins to walk over. The elephant then takes a seat on the last space of grass, blocking the space, and leaving the player unable to finish their project. Adding to this frustration for u/jackiiiee1 is the fact that there is an open bench just a few spaces away.

Villagers in Animal Crossing games have their own routines that they follow. This list includes fishing in rivers, stretching, sweeping the island, as well as sitting down by rivers and trees. Unfortunately for this player, Margie the elephant went for a relaxing sit down near where the tree had just been removed, not knowing that it was already gone.

Players have a great deal with which they can decorate and alter their island, but moments like this can be quite frustrating. Villagers have their routines in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and a variety of different dialogue options but sometimes struggle to adapt to the changes that players make on their island.

Then again, the game gives players a lot of different options to change the layout of the island, and having villagers adjust to that perfectly each time might be asking a lot. Either way, this moment is a great example of the interesting things players can create in Animal Crossing: New Horizons but the frustration they can run into as well.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now for the Nintendo Switch.
