How to get rid of unwanted villagers in New Horizons

The Animal Crossing island is a pretty happening place. The game offers 397 villagers who can become a part of the player’s community. Each villager in the game has a distinct personality and serves a different purpose. While some villagers are extremely useful during events, others just surface to have a conversation to make Animal Crossing more interactive.

Even though there are so many different villagers, players can only select 10 villagers to live on the island at any given time. More importantly, the villagers that make the final cut have to be kept away from the ones they have a rocky relationship with.

Ways to get rid of unwanted villagers in Animal Crossing

Stop interacting with them

This is one of the easiest ways to get rid of a villager you dislike. Even though it requires some effort, it’s one of the few ways to guarantee that a villager moves out.

The players need to start ignoring the villagers they want to kick out. They will have to completely ignore their existence. This will upset the neighbor and will make them wonder about their prospects on other islands.

This is also when this villager might start appearing on the island more often than usual. The villager will have a cloud over their head, insinuating that they’re deep in thought. This could mean two things. First, they’re thinking about moving out and this is when the the player should encourage them to leave.

Complain to Isabelle

Select the option to Discuss the Resident and the players are free to choose whatever issue they want to raise a complaint about.
