Those who dive into the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons will have the ability to run into villagers of all kinds who make up the game's community. However, some of these types of villagers are rare when compared to other types, as there are not as many of them. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know about these rare types of villagers covered for you.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Rare Villagers

Now, players have an equal chance of encountering all of the unique characters that are in the game, so no one character is rarer than another. The rarity of the game's characters come from how rare each type of character is when it comes to their species. An example of this is that there are only seven hippo characters compared to 15 horse characters, which means that meeting a hippo is rarer than meeting a horse based on numbers.
