Having nice and friendly residents is one of the dreams wanted by the players of Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH. Just like in real life, unfortunately, the thing that you want cannot always come true. In the game, you might find some residents that annoy you, to the point you want them to get out from your island.
When you have an annoying resident, your first instinct might be to report them. However, before doing so, you might be wondering what will happen if you do it. Will that resident get punished? Is it possible for that resident to get kicked out of the island? In order to find the answers to such questions, keep reading the post until the end.
One of the known ways to do when you are annoyed by a resident is to report or to complain to Isabelle. If you want to try this, you can just enter the Residential Services building. When you are there, have a seat and start the conversation with Isabelle. Do not forget to choose the option to Discuss a Resident and then choose any reason to complain about that certain resident. Feel free to report about the clothing or the way the resident speaks. When you report that resident to Isabelle, you will be able to change the thing that is worn by the resident or their catchphrases.
Before trying this method, it should be noted that it is not an instant way and it takes a lot of dedication to pull it off. If you are really annoyed with that resident, to the point you want them to be removed from the island, it will be needed for you to discuss that one with Isabelle a couple of times because one meeting is not enough. As stated before, it is not easy and it could take several ways before the resident gets a hint of what is actually happening. While it might seem complicated, it is worth trying if you really want to get rid of that resident.
Apart from reporting to Isabelle, there are some other ways to get rid of the unwanted resident. Some other methods include:
- Stop making interaction with them
Ignoring the existence of that resident is one of the best ways to get rid of the resident. It might not be easy and is full of challenges but it is worth trying and is proven to be effective. By following the advice, the resident will feel left out and they will be lonely without any friends. If they catch you down, keep going and do not even bother.
While your job is to ignore the resident, remember to also keep an eye on them. In fact, there will be a time when they are seen strolling the streets with a cloud above their head. When there is one, it means that the resident is thinking about something and it is usually about whether or not they should leave the island. When you see that cloud, do not waste your time and interact with that resident. Encourage them to find something that is better on another island.
It is worth noting that it is not always the case. Sometimes, the thing inside their head is to give an item to someone in order to gain friendship. In this kind of case, the best thing that you can do is to follow up on the conversation and hit the resident with the bug net. It should be done to discourage and anger them, making the chance of them leaving the island higher. Besides, you are also suggested to ask the other residents to do the same thing to make the changes bigger. Bad mouthing the other residents is proven to be effective to make the others feel lonely and feel left out and want to leave the island as soon as possible.
- Sending and ignoring letters
The second alternative to get rid of a resident is to send them letters and ignore the ones that were sent by them. When you send them letters, you are recommended to include the mean words that can hurt their feelings. Besides, it is also important to state why it is needed for that resident to leave the island. Sending a letter that is full of mean words is the most straightforward and the best thing to let them know that they are unwanted and need to move away.
Just like sending letters that are full of mean words, ignoring the letters sent by them to you is also an effective way to try getting rid of them. However, it is a bit risky as it is possible for them to send you gifts. Keep in mind that it does not matter if you miss getting the gifts sent by the residents and just focus on your aim, which is to get rid of them. Please do not only think about the short run but also a long run.
- Amiibo neighbors
Those who collect the Amiibo figures will have an easier method to get rid of a resident. With the Amiibo figures that are scanned with the machine that is found in the resident Service, you will be able to get rid of the resident that you do not want on your island. To be able to make your effort successful, you will need to get the campsite on your island. As a player, there is an option for you to make a campsite after upgrading the Residential Services once. After building the campsite, a villager will show up and you are allowed to invite the villager to live on the island. Not only that, it can also force Tom Nook to tell you that Nook wants to invite more villagers. Once you hear about his will, the next thing that you have to do is to visit the Nook Stop machine where you will be given an option to invite residents with Amiibo figures.
