Update June 15 – Animal Crossing Portal take votes and update their Villager popularity lists in the middle of each month. This list is now up to date with the most popular Villagers for June 2020.
Each month, Animal Crossing Portal updates their most popular Villagers list; once at the beginning of the month and once in the middle. This list collects the most popular Villagers for June 2020 in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As it stands, these Villagers are still worth between 15 and 20 million Bells, or 1,000 Nook Miles Tickets, on the black market. If you’re looking for which Villagers sell for the highest price, or just which ones to fill your island with next, we’ve got you covered.
Marshal is now the most popular Villager for June 2020, having been second for the first half of the month. He has a smug personality type, but he’s actually one of the nicest Villagers to have around. He’s always got something nice or interesting to say, and can often be found chattering away to himself or others around your island. He also has a selection of swish outfits that make him particularly adorable.
Raymond was the most popular Villager for June 2020 until the mid-month update, now he’s slunk down into second. Raymond is a brand new Villager with Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is partly why he’s so sought-after. You see, you can’t simply grab Raymond from an Animal Crossing Amiibo card, you need to find him in the game and invite him to stay with you, making him that much harder to obtain. Most people love his eyes, which are the result of a condition called heterochromia which, while benign, gives him one of the most unique appearances in the game.
Sherb is a lazy Villager, but he’s really quite sweet once you get to know him. He might rub the jock personality types up the wrong way, but really all he wants to chat about is food and relaxation, and who doesn’t want someone like that around? There isn’t anything much else that’s special about Sherb, but it must just be his relaxing aura that people are going nuts for this month.
Zucker is a lazy octopus Villager. His name and appearance both refer to the Japanese snack, takoyaki, which is a fried ball of dough that’s most commonly filled with minced octopus. Does that make him a symbol of cannibalism? It might explain his appearance on this list. Even the green freckles on his face refer to the seasoning usually used to top takoyaki, and his hair looks exactly like the sauce. If you’re into tasty-looking Villagers, this is a great one to have around for June.
Roald is a jock personality type penguin who has shot up from eleventh in the first half of June. Not a combination I thought I’d ever see. He’s actually appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date, which might be why he’s so popular. His appearance is believed to be inspired by Roald Amudsen, who was the first person to ever reach Antarctica. As if that wasn’t enough, he decorates the interior of his house with ice sculptures; I imagine just so that he can show them off to you when you come and visit him.
For the first half of June, Judy was in fifth, but couldn’t stand up against the sheer popularity of Roald for the second half. If you’ve never seen Judy, you’re not likely to forget her anytime soon. Her eyes are basically stars that shine out of her head, making her look like she could blind you if you stared at her for long enough. Judy is obsessed with style and will natter to you about it whenever she gets the opportunity. Her house is also particularly on point, if you like the colours she wears, that is.
Audie is one of the lovelier Villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Her western name was likely given to her in recognition of the mayor in an 88-year-old grandmother’s game of Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The lovely real life inspiration for Audie’s name put more than 3,500 hours into her game, and was given a Nintendo Switch with Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a gift from fans for her dedication. In the game, Audie will put up some pretty incredible animated wallpaper in her house, so she’s well worth having.
Marina is another octopus Villager, and she has a normal personality type. This doesn’t make her boring at all, it just means that she seems slightly less unhinged than the rest of the Villagers in the game. Marina’s name originates from the Latin ‘of the sea’, which is extremely appropriate given what she is. Her tendency to cover everything with pink extends to her house, so if you want somewhere shocking to retreat to, she’s the Villager you need.
Ankha is one of my favourite Villagers. Her name is derived from the Egyptian hieroglyph for ‘life’, called Ankh. As you can see, she is a sphinx, or inspired by them at the very least. I can tell you now that she also decorates the interior of her house with Egyptian furniture, so much that you’ll begin to question if she’s building it all as custom content.
Beau has actually dropped for the first half of June down by two places. Nevertheless, I’ve seen him described as a being of pure light. Beau has a fantastic selection of jumpers, and loves the outdoors. If you’re a camping enthusiast, you’ll want to have this guy on your island. He decorates the interior of his house to look like a meadow, and even plonks down a picnic to ensure it always looks welcoming.
Merengue has actually moved up by five spaces since the start of the month. This Villager is designed to look just like a strawberry shortcake, I think. While she looks like a cheeky dessert, she decorates her home like a 1950s diner, which somehow makes her even more appealing. She’s dropped down from thirteenth place this week, and I don’t think she has long to go before she’s out of this list entirely, so enjoy her while you can.
Moving down from eighth place, Stitches is one of the more horrifying Villagers in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He has the lazy personality type, but is always around to give you a boost whenever you need it, emotionally that is. You’ll probably find Stitches roaming around your museum more than anywhere else, which many believe is because he has a child-like fascination with the creatures you’ve collected there. If you’re after a museum companion, this is your bear.
Fauna is a beautiful Villager. She’s dropped from ninth, but deserves to be first in my eyes. She actively tries to cheer everyone up, with something new to make you feel better every day. The best bonus of having her as a Villager on your island is the fact that she waters your plants for you. I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of plants that need watering.
Bob is a cat, and he is lazy. Somehow he’s moved up from twelfth place last month, though I think I know why. He’s always got something crazy to say, or a mad shirt to wear, and the interior of his house is particularly dreadful in my opinion. Still, if you need a Villager who is even more outlandish than you are, Bob is a good bet.
The final Villager in this week’s list has changed. Dom is a new entry for the mid-month update, who has moved up from second place in tier 2. Dom is a jock personality type sheep Villager who is brand new for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With pink horns and a rainbow coloured tie-dye t-shirt, he’s almost the perfect Villager to acquire for pride month. While you might expect Dom to fill his house with workout equipment or something else fancy, he likes to keep the interior looking like an open field. He even mows the lawn.
Those are the most popular Villagers for June 2020 in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. We’ll update this list around June 15, when Animal Crossing Portal update theirs, so be sure to check back around then to see if you still have the best Villagers around.
