Welcome to the richly complex world of Animal Crossing! Even though you moved
to your town to get away from it all, you'll find a steady stream of visitors.
Travelers and vendors stop by regularly, keeping your town lively and full of
fresh faces. From fortune-tellers to black marketeers, musicians to insane
aviators, you'll always be assured of plenty of variety in your life.

In addition to bringing new stories and gossip to town, visitors are often a
source of rare and valuable goods that you can't get anywhere else. Get to
know and love them; it's well worth your while.  Some of them are rather
slippery customers, but this guide is here for you.  

Read on for the vital stats on all the visitors, and learn how to make the
most out of your encounters with them!



Coming Soon:     Tom Nook's buying prices for special items.

Version 1.01:    Added: a few special items; Thanks To... section; notes about
(12/19/2005)     diacritics in K.K.'s songs. 1up.com is now authorized to host
                 and distribute this guide.
Version 1.0:     First version of the Special Visitors Guide posted.



A)   Blanca
When:       Random day after WiFi play
Where:      Wandering your town

No one quite knows how it happened, but once upon a time a kitten was born
without a face. Although she washes off her face every night when she takes off
her makeup, Blanca still wants to see the world. She travels from town to town,
seeing the sights and relying on the residents to help her apply a new face
every day. She'll stop by your town from time to time; if you run into her, she
will ask you to give her a new face. It's like the ultimate makeover!

B)   Cornimer
When:       The Acorn Festival (second week of October), 24 hours
Where:      In front of Town Hall

Once a year, your town goes nuts over acorns (hah, pun).  During this week,
you'll find an acorn-masked individual hanging out in front of the Town Hall,
encouraging everyone to take part in the celebration.  He just loves those
acorns.  You can sell them to Tom Nook for 100 Bells apiece, but it's much
smarter to bring them to Cornimer.  Give him enough, and he'll reward you with 
a piece of the rare Mush furniture set.  You can't get the furniture
anywhere else!  (Just don't bring Cornimer rotted acorns.)

Mush Bed            Mush Lamp
Mush Closet         Mush Stand
Mush Chair          Mush Stool
Mush Dresser        Mush Table
Mush End Table      Mush TV

C)   Dr. Shrunk
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - midnight
Where:      Wandering your town

Add some oomph to your conversations with the help of Dr. Shrunk! Okay, so the
man looks like he could use a little therapy himself, but he really can teach
you a few things. Dr. Shrunk will instruct you in the fine art of nonverbal
communication.  Afterward, you too will be able to generate punctuation and
hearts in the air above your head.  Hey, if nothing else, this oughta help
you avoid potential misunderstandings with your neighbors.

D)   Gracie
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 6 a.m. next day
Where:      Town Hall

Designing your own clothes is nice, but for true Animal Crossing couture, you
have to go to Gracie.  The fabulous fashionista will drive her car (a flashy
convertible, of course) right into your town and park it in the Town Hall
courtyard.  So, how chic are you?  Gracie will tell you.  Before she'll even
talk to you about her own trendy designs, she'll insist on giving you a pop
quiz.  You'll get an evaluation in the mail and a shirt design...a normal
shirt design.

If you want access to Gracie's special collection, you're going to have to be
persistent.  Continue to talk to her until you wear her down, and eventually
she'll concede that you just might have what it takes to sport her fashions:
style, poise, and above all, cash.  Dish out enough dough, and she'll favor
you with the coveted clothing.

Occasionally, you'll get back the Moldy Shirt with your evaluation.  Yech.
Although it's not attractive, and...doesn't smell that good, I'd imagine,
it's still an exclusive item, and that's the only way to get it!

Barber Shirt            Giraffe Shirt           Sandwich Shirt
Butterfly Shirt         Grape Shirt             Snow Shirt
Caterpillar Tee         Grass Shirt             Splendid Shirt
Citrus Shirt            Gracie's Top            Strawberry Shirt
Cool Shirt              Groovy Shirt            Tiger Shirt
Coral Shirt             Hot Dog Shirt           Tin Shirt
Cow Shirt               Kiwi Shirt              Watermelon Shirt
Crossing Shirt          Ladybug Shirt           Zebra Shirt
Fiendish Shirt          Melon Shirt
Flan Shirt              Orange Pinstripe

E)   Gulliver
When:       Random Monday - Friday, between 6 a.m. and noon
Where:      Sky (top screen)

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Gulliver, an eccentric seagull who prefers a
UFO to his own wings.  If you see him, you can use your slingshot to bring him
down to earth so that you can talk to him.  When you do, he'll ask you to help
him find spare parts for his UFO so that he can get back into the air. After
all, you're the one who damaged it--fair's fair.

You can find the missing UFO parts buried in the ground, so unship your shovel
and get searching. Find them, return them to Gulliver, and he'll give you a
nice souvenir from his aerial rovings around the world.

Gulliver also has a little treat for Metroid fans.  Will you be lucky enough
to find it?

Arc de Triomphe         Metroid
Chocolates              Moai Statue
Compass                 Mouth of Truth
Manekin Pis             Pagoda
Matryoshka              Plate Armor
Merlion                 Tower of Pisa
Mermaid Statue          Tribal Mask

F)   Joan
When:       Every Sunday, 6 a.m. - noon
Where:      Wandering your town

Other places have farmer's markets; you have Sow Joan, purveyor of finest
turnips. You can find her peddling her wares all around town every Sunday
morning, and it's always a wise idea to seek her out. The turnips Joan sells 
come in two varieties: white and red.  Both are worth getting, since Tom Nook 
pays pretty well for root vegetables.  

White turnips can be sold to Nook any day within a week, but his buying prices 
fluctuate from day to day.  You'll have to check on the going rate every day if 
you want to make it big in the stalk market.  Just don't hold out for a high 
price TOO long!  Turnips rot after a week.

Red turnips allow you to get your foot in the door of the lucrative turnip
trade. Buy a few from Joan and then grow your own! The better you care for
them, the bigger they get, and the more Nook will pay for them.  Having a red
turnip around has other benefits, too; you can read about those in the "Pass
the Buck" section.

G)   Kaitlin & Katie
When:       Random day after WiFi play
Where:      Wandering your town

Oh, no! While your town's gates were open, a kitten wandered off from her
mother and got herself lost in another town. Obviously, the decent thing to do
is to help reunite the family. If you find either of the pair in your town,
you'll have to link up with the town they mention.  The player with Katie the
Kitten should lead her to the town gate and take her to her distraught mom.

Aww, doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?  Well, even if it
doesn't, there's a less altruistic reason to reunite the feline duo.  In
Animal Crossing, good deeds seldom go unrewarded.  Kaitlin will be so relieved
to have her daughter back that she'll send you a rare gift along with a thank-
you note!

Lily-Pad Table      Papa Panda
Lovely Phone        Portrait

H)   Katrina
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - midnight
Where:      Her tent in your town

Ooh, I see mountains of Bells and pockets full of fish in your future. Every
once in a while, a mystical medium will set up shop in your town for a day.
For 100 Bells, she'll tell your fortune or let you know how compatible you are
with any person you know! Considering even a cup of coffee from Brewster costs
200 Bells, it's a pretty good deal.

If the tea-leaves-and-crystal-ball standard doesn't satisfy you, you can also
have your aura cleansed by Katrina. Be warned, however, that such a service
does not come cheaply. Katrina expects 10,000 Bells for her trouble.  It's up
to you to decide whether or not it's a worthwhile investment.

I)   K.K. Slider
When:       Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. - midnight
Where:      The Roost

K.K. Slider, your town's resident musician, will be familiar to all those who
played the original Animal Crossing. For those of you new to the AC world,
K.K's a guitar-slinging, ultra-laid-back independent artist. You can catch him 
every Saturday night at the cafe in the museum's basement. He doesn't play
for pay, man, he plays for the joy of the music. This works out pretty well for
you, since at the end of his performance, he'll give you a free recording of
the set du jour to play at home.  Let him pick what to play, or request one of
your favorites--it's all the same to him!  You should know, though, that some
of his songs are secret; he'll only play them for you if you ask for them by

[Note: ASCII does not include diacritical marks, but Animal Crossing does,
so I'd like to note that to get K.K.'s songs by request, you have to type
in the exact names of the songs (case-sensitive).  Cafe K.K. includes an
acute accent over the e, and Senor K.K. takes a tilde over the N.]

J)   Lyle
When:       Every Saturday, 6 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Where:      In front of your house

Lyle knows all about life's little disappointments: finding out Redd sold you
a worthless forgery, finding bees instead of Bells in that tree.  Sure, he
might be a little oily, but Lyle will sell you insurance against life's little
mishaps. Next time you get stung by bees, you'll get something other than a
swollen face! His company will mail you settlements (not large ones, but
something's better than nothing, isn't it?).

We wouldn't like to cast aspersions on the agent's character, but Lyle will
also offer you a chance to fix a day of the week for Redd's next visit. Hmm...

K)   Pascal
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - midnight
Where:      Beach

Listen up, maann, for a dose of uniquely fried philosophy, keep an eye on your
town's shorefront.  If you see a beaver in a hat, it's your lucky day.  Pascal
will let you in on his frequently hilarious take on the cosmos, then slip back
into the ocean to think those deep thoughts.  Before he goes, though, he'll
give you a lovely parting gift: a piece of rare furniture. Pascal is in fact
the exclusive source of Pirate theme furniture.

L)   Pete
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. or 5 p.m.
Where:      Sky (top screen)

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night shall stay Pete the pelican about
his appointed duty...slingshots might, though.  Once a week, you can see the
feathered mail carrier flying through your town on his rounds.  If you just 
-must- speak to him, or you're feeling a bit impish, you can shoot the poor
guy down with your slingshot. 

M)   Redd
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - midnight
Where:      Town Hall Courtyard

Psst...hey!  Yes, you.  You interested in one-of-a-kind rareties?  Well, Crazy
Redd's got 'em.  Redd's a sly itinerant black marketeer who swings through
your town from time to time.  He arrives sometime in the night, sets up shop
for a day, then disappears again.  Redd deals in the finer things in life...
just don't ask where he got them. In fact, don't ask any questions at all.

Redd's wares may be pretty nice, but just getting inside his tent to look at
them is an undertaking.  He's a bit (probably reasonably) paranoid, so he
demands a password before he'll let you in.  To get that password, walk around
your town when he's there and talk to all your neighbors.  One of them will
have the password.  Alternatively, you can join his club for 3,000 Bells, and
he'll mail you the password every time he comes to town.

Even if it seems like a lot of trouble, it's well worth it.  Redd's is the
only place you can get most of the paintings, and he regularly carries other
goods that are harder to find at Nook's.  Of course, if you wait for them to
show up at Nook's, you'll save some money, since Redd marks up his items quite
a bit.  Hey, a fox has gotta make a living.

Oh, and if your town is named Hyrule (or you just like Zelda), you might
especially like one of Redd's finds.

N)   Saharah
When:       Random Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - midnight
Where:      Wandering around town

From the desert to your very own town, Saharah brings you the rarest of wall
treatments and carpets. Though she's able to find her way into towns, she
never stays in one place long enough to learn the details. If you help her out
by delivering her wares to your friends and neighbors, she'll reward you with
one of her exclusive wares.  It really does pay to be polite!

O)   Snowman
When:       Every day there is snow on the ground
Where:      Wherever you build him

You're never too old to play in the snow! It's fun and keeps you young at
heart, and it can actually be profitable.  Every day that there's snow on the
ground, you can find two snowballs somewhere in your town. With just a little
help from you, they can realize their potential as a fantastic snowman.  Roll
the first around in the snow until it's as big as possible, then go fetch the
other.  Make a second ball slightly smaller than the first (if you go too far,
roll it on bare ground to shrink it a bit) and then push the two together.
Voila!  Snowman.  In fact, living snowman!

That's right, your snowman will come to life once you've assembled him.  If
you got the proportions right, he'll thank you for bringing him to life. Later
that day, you'll get a piece of exclusive Snowman series furniture in the mail.
(For a snowman, he's got pretty good penmanship.) Of course, if you got it
wrong, he'll just make fun of you.

P)   Wendell
When:       Random Monday - friday, 6 a.m. to midnight
Where:      Wandering your town

Starving artist: a little cliche, but very much the truth in Animal Crossing.
You'll find this starving artist wandering around randomly.  If you feed him
(a pretty easy task, since he'll eat virtually anything), he'll offer you one
of his designs in exchange.  The designs are related to what you feed him, so
it may take a bit of experimentation to find out what brings the best results.
Once you're done supporting the arts and Wendell's impressive waistline, you
can deck out your town with his finest work.



Are you after some of THE rarest objects in the game...ones you'll never find
on your own? Well, in Animal Crossing, as in life, nothing is quite as
straightforward as you'd think. Some of your visitors have secret desires, and
fulfilling them will set off a long chain of trades that will lead you to
awesome items.  Intrigued? Just follow the plan laid out below and discover
fame and riches...or at least riches.

Step 1:   JOAN - On Sunday, buy a RED TURNIP and plant it in the ground. Take
          good care of it and let it grow nice and big. Once you do, dig it
          back up and carry it around with you.
Step 2:   WENDELL - When Wendell appears in your town the next time, give him
          the RED TURNIP. He'll give you either a TURBAN (3a) or a 
          COUNTRY GUITAR (3b) in exchange.
Step 3a:  If you got the TURBAN, give it to SAHARAH. She'll give you a RED
          VASE (4a) or a MASSAGE CHAIR (4b).
Step 3b:  If you got the COUNTRY GUITAR, give it to K.K. SLIDER on Saturday.
          You'll get the K.K. SLIDER PIC, which completes this line of trade.

Step 4a:  If you got the RED VASE, show it to REDD and he'll give you a
          SAFE (5a).
Step 4b:  If you got the MASSAGE CHAIR, offer it to TORTIMER, who'll
          appreciate it enough to give you the rarest of all shells, the
          SCALLOP (5b).
Step 5a:  If you got the SAFE, bring it to TOM NOOK. Now that he considers
          you a friend, he'll give you TOM NOOK'S PIC, which completes this
          line of trade.
Step 5b:  If you got the SCALLOP, bring it to PASCAL when he washes up on
          your beach. He'll give you either the GOLDEN AXE or PASCAL'S
          PIC, which completes this line of trade.
Whew! This could take a while.
