Animal Crossing is PEOPLE! No, really! Theorists, this may be one of the most unexpected theories I’ve put out recently, but once you see it, you will never unsee it. I have gathered TONS of evidence that our player character is only SEEING the villagers of Animal Crossing as animals. They are not, in fact, ACTUAL talking, anthropomorphic animals. Have I said the word animals enough yet? Well get ready Loyal Theorists, I am about to blow your mind! Animals!

  1. If you have a wasp sting on your eye they will talk about it

  2. If you have a wasp sting on your eye they will talk about it

  3. They could just be furriest, it's a strong passion in their culture, your character is just uncultured

  4. Or ya know they could just be scary furries 😶

  5. its animal crossing is animals crossed with humans it say it in the name of the game

  6. or maybe it's just an island full of furries

  7. Ok mattpat thank you for the reminder to bud… Weis… Er… Man am i old…?😂

  8. everytime matt brings mental illness into his theories i always roll my eyes

  9. For anyone who believes this ueres some evidence against it first off matpat claims the cause might be stress from going in debt and moving to a new island ect but even in beginning of game when you are checking in at airport there still animals begir you go through all the stress and the changing body thing it's just a game mechanic

  10. Is it just me or dose this video remind me of oddtaxi??? Because mat's theory is very simular to oddtaxi

  11. Well this explains Anka zone 😋

  12. Tom Nook is not a raccoon, he's a Tanuki 😤 (sarcasm, but it is true)

  13. Quick note: im pretty sure i read in super smash bros ultimate during the loading screen that it said the language the villagers speak in is called "animalese"



  15. Ladies and gentleman, MatPat, the only person who can take a lighthearted game and turn it into a sad story of mental illness

  16. I have been watching these videos seen 2:00 I love these videos

  17. I've always figured the name, Animal CROSSING was literal…your half right Matpat their HALF human half animal….their animals CROSSED with humans

  18. Something tells me even Peppa pig has this same condition!

  19. child friendly game exists


  20. Um so u should look into lucky I have him on my island and he looks like a mummy but he is alive and he's a dog and he could potentially be injured and he also thinks bugs have mind's similar to humans

  21. Probably just a result af a science experiment

  22. Huh. I’d never heard of that mental disorder before. The symptoms are very interesting. This theory seems pretty solid too. Neat video!

  23. I was playing animal crosing will seing this

  24. If matpat got a dollar for let’s say every word per video he would be rich

  25. When you notice hello neighbor behind the chest in the intro

  26. You know I never viewed Tom Nook as greedy because he never charges interest. And I come from a family with plenty of experience with debts

  27. Wait guys, so, if you look in the sky, you can see the earth, are we not humans?

  28. Tom nook is actually a tanooki and redd is a kitsuné

  29. so if they "easter" bunny guy is the dad and knew of this condition then it makes even more sence why it would be a costume

  30. Or the furrys took over and you're the last sane human left

  31. i just found out tom nook and timmy and tommy arnt raccoons…there tanookies

  32. The Afton family might be related because 1 the dad William Afton is in a bunny suit 2 amntronics are not alone they have spirits in them
