Gulliver (Japanese name:ジョニー, Johnny) is a male seagull who appears in the Animal Crossing Series. He is believed to be an explorer and he gifts player rare items, usually furniture.


[edit] Background

Gulliver is a very strange character that has appeared in all three Animal Crossing games to date. Some think he's just downright crazy, others think he's just trying to make himself look good with his whacked out sea stories.

[edit] Appearance

In Animal Crossing Gamecube, Gulliver appears dressed as a sailor with a blue top with a white tie around it, and white pants trimmed with blue lining. He also wears a white cap trimmed with blue linings as well. In Wild World and City Folk, Gulliver wears his spacesuit which is blue and black with a meter in the middle of it. He also wears a helmet that covers his head, as he does need to breath while in space.

[edit] Personality

Gulliver is a bit of a fibber. He likes to have the attention of everyone as well. When he tells one of his crazy stories about his time out at the sea, he likes to exaggerate a little and make it more fun for him and the person to whom he is talking to. He also has a great endurance of pain, because after being shot down multiple times by you, he is still alive, well, and kicking.

[edit] Animal Crossing Role

In this game, you can randomly find Gulliver knocked out on the shores of your beach. If you wake him up, he will thank you and tell you quite an unbelievable story about how he crashed at sea and that was the reason why he ended up on the shores of the beach. After listening to his ludicrous story, Gulliver will give you an exclusive item that came from his adventures as a sailor.

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World Role

This time, Gulliver has decided to become an astronaut and he even got himself a UFO! He comes on a random day from 6:00am until 12:00am. To find out when you should be on the lookout for Gulliver, talk to Booker, one of the gatekeepers. If Booker says that he has seen him recently, you should be on the lookout. You will have to shoot him down using your Slingshot A UFO might fly across your screen in seconds that end in two or seven (12:32, 12:37). It appears just as a balloon would, but only much faster, thus making it harder to catch. When you shoot it down, he will land on a spot where a neighbor's house was supposed to be. You need to talk to him several times to get him to come to. Once he wakes up, talk to him and he will ask you to help him retrieve the parts of his UFO which are scattered around your town. There are going to be five gears that you will need to collect. They will be on the ground. When you find all of them, bring them back to Gulliver and he will reward you with one of his exclusive items.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk Role


Gulliver is still an astronaut. He will fly across your screen on a random day from 6:00am until 12:00am. You may still speak to Booker to find out if he has been spotted in the town recently or not. Get out your slingshot and get ready to catch Gulliver if he has. Catching him in this game is very hard because he is rarely seen. If you do see him and manage to hunt him down, you will notice that when your slingshot hits his UFO a piece falls off and sends him reeling through the sky. You will need to go and find that piece. When you do, you will need to go to the shores of your beach as that is where Gulliver where be washed up. Wake him up, give him the piece, and he will give you one of his items (even though you caused him all of the trouble in the first place).


[edit] Gulliver's Items

Gulliver gives you rare items that you can't find elsewhere!

  • Arc de Triomphe

  • Mermaid Statue
  • Metroid

[edit] Name

His name may possibly be a reference of a book called Gulliver's travels which, is written by Jonathan Swift, It is about a man who travels the sea then being shipwrecked discovering an unknown island. This name suits Gulliver well considering the sound of gull in the same and the species he is. Also, he is believed to be an explorer he washes a shore or crash lands in player's town.

His Japanese name, Johnny, could also be a reference to the author's name Jonathan Swift. Johnny can seem a shorter or similar version of the name Jonathan.

[edit] Trivia

  • Gulliver is named after Swift's Gulliver's Travel.
