How To Kick Out Villagers In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Is there anything worse than dealing with an annoying villager in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Well, maybe there is, but perhaps youre thinking about kicking one of them off your island. Sometimes the little nickname they have for you might rub you the wrong way, and you just cant stand it anymore. How exactly do you go about removing them?
As of right now, there isnt a quick and easy method that 100% guarantees a villager will be dismissed from your island. In fact, whether a villager is thinking of moving out appears to be somewhat random. Many players have their own theories that supposedly work, but there are a lot out there that are flat-out wrong. For instance, some have claimed that bonking a villager on the head with a net will cause them to get mad at you, leading to them requesting to move. Others have stated that complaining to Isabelle in Residential Services might cause a villager to leave. Both of these are untrue. However, there are a couple of methods that seem to work.
Youll know a villager is ready to move out when they have a cloud above their head. After talking to them, theyll tell you theyve been thinking of moving out, and if you agree, theyll be off the island in a couple of days. To speed this process along, try one of the following methods.
Visit Other Islands Nook Miles Tickets
In order to recruit the first three villagers, you’ll need to have some Nook Miles Tickets. These can be bought for 2,000 Nook Miles each from the kiosk at Resident Services and only become available after the first day of play. When the tickets are in your inventory, run to the airport and tell Orville, the dodo behind the counter, that you want to explore another island.
While you’re exploring, you might come across a random animal NPC. Talk to them and invite them to live on your island. You might need to talk to them a few times before the invitation comes up.
Once the first three villager have been invited and you’re back on your island, Tom Nook asks you to scout out a plot of land for these newcomers . One of the new villagers you invited will appear on your island the day after you’ve completed setting up the new housing area. The other two will appear one day at a time after that.

How To Get More Villagers
As you develop the island, more villagers will want to make their home there. But you get a say in who moves in and where they live. If you want a villager to move in, pick a spot for a future home to be built.
First thing to note, as you naturally progress through unlocking new features on the island, Tom Nook will eventually have you build and help furnish three houses for incoming villagers. Once youve built and placed all the furniture for once house and check in with Tom Nook, youll see a sold sign appear on the lot with the name of the incoming villager.
This may seem randomized, but you do have a chance at reserving a spot for a specific villager. Use the Nook Miles Tickets to fly to Mystery Islands, and if you see a random villager camping out that you like, tell them to visit your island next and theres a big chance theyll be the ones reserving a spot in the furnished houses.
However, once these spots are taken, you wont be able to get new villagers for a little bit longer. Once Resident Services has been upgraded to a building, talk to Tom Nook again about more plans for developing your island, and hell have to look into crafting a Campground.
With the Campground, a random villager can come visit your town and Isabelle will announce if theres currently anyone occupying the camp site. Unfortunately, the villager that shows up the day after the campground is built will join your town no matter what, so hopefully you like them.
Moving In & Moving Out Villagers
One of the more integral aspects of the game pertains to the invitation and eviction of villagers from your island, be it for your quest to obtain all Dreamies, or cycling through villagers for the photos of every possible Villager, or even just to make sure you have a well balanced island with all possible personalities for the DIYs and Reactions. Whatever your reason, this section will try to detail the intricacies of this system.

Time Travel In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons players are often advised against time travel as it leads to various villagers moving out due to neglect. However, in this case, time travel is the perfect solution to skip the month-long wait to evict an unwanted villager.
Players can skip ahead to the time when the unwanted villager usually wanders about and look for a moving-out bubble. As soon as they spot the bubble, they can move it in single-day increments to make it reach the Animal Crossing: New Horizons villager they want to evict.
How To Invite New Villagers In Animal Crossing New Horizons
Now that youve set aside some land for housing on your island in New Horizons, its time to invite some new villagers.
You can choose not to interfere and, if you do so, the plot of land will eventually be brought by a randomly selected villager after a couple of days. You can discover who brought the plot of land by reading the sold sign.
If youd rather exercise some control over who moves onto your island, then there are three ways, which dont involve amiibo cards, to invite villagers to your island in New Horizons:
Inviting villagers from Mystery Islands
If you have a free plot of land on your island, then a randomly selected villager will appear on any Mystery Island you visit. They will continue to appear, until this plot is sold and, if you have no land for sale, then every Mystery Island you visit will be uninhabited.
To go on a Mystery Island tour, you must first purchase a Nook Miles Ticket, which costs 2,000 Nook Miles, from the Nook Step in Residential Services. Take this ticket to the airport and youll be flown to a randomly selected island, which will contain one villager if you have a plot of land for sale.
If you like the villager inhabiting the Mystery Island, then start talking to them. Eventually youll be given the option to encourage or discourage them from moving to your island. If you really dont want that villager moving to your home at all, then we suggest ignoring them entirely.

Okay So How Do I Make Someone Leave
However, there are two ways to ensure someone leaves. The first is to have a full town of 10 villagers and scan an amiibo card at the Nook Stop terminal. You will be able to move in the villager on the card, and choose who you want to move out. They’ll always accept.
The second way is to invite a villager visiting your campsite to move in. However, they’ll offer to boot out a random villager, and it might be one you like. If they do pick one you like, you can save, close the game, and open it again, then ask them to move in again. They might choose a different villager, though they may also pick the same one. It’s random chance.
When Will Villagers Ask To Leave
Villagers have a higher chance of asking to leave if you have a bad relationship with them. However, its always possible for them to ask to leave if you have the maximum of ten villagers on your island.
According to community tracking efforts, it must be at least two weeks after the last villager moved out. If a villager asks to move out and you convince them to stay, this extends the grace period by one week and youll have to wait at least seven days before youll be asked again.

How Is The Chance Of X Villager Asking To Move Out Calculated
While we dont know the specifics, we do know that there is an ask chance multiplier that is calculated using this formula:
floor / 10) - r = ask chance multipliera = average friendship points they have with all island residentsr = amount of residents with > 200 friendship
Lets use an example to illustrate the outcome of this formula. Lets say that Stitches has 58 friendship points with Player A, and 201 friendship points with Player B. That means that in our equation, a = /2 = 129.5, and b = 1, because there is only one player with > 200 friendship points with Stitches. Plugging a and r into our above equation gives:
floor/10) - 1floor - 1 = 16
That means that Stitches has 16 times the base chance of asking to move out. Youll notice that as you plug in higher numbers for a and r , the multiplier goes down. This means that villagers with higher friendship are less likely to ask to move out, and villagers with low friendship are more likely to ask.
There’s A Secret Hack
According to u/Deenew on Reddit, there is a method through creating a second player character that can reverse your error. But you have to work quickly if you want to do it. If you wait until the next day, the villager might already be gone. After creating your second character, seek out the neighbor and they will tell you they’re pondering moving. All you need to do is ask them not to leave. After this, when you return to the island as your main character, the villager will let you know they have changed their minds. Seems simple enough right? But how do villagers want to ever move away in the first place? How do you avoid them getting that mindset? Or pushing out the wrong ones?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons: Why Your Villagers Want To Leave And How To Invite More
The islands of Animal Crossing: New Horizons are populated by wholesome villagers who just want to be your friend. In total, the game houses over 390 villagers but with only ten villagers allowed on your island at once, you likely wont see every villager the game has to offer. To combat this, the game features a rotating system of villagers and a friendship-based system that compels some villagers to leave your island. Heres how it works.
In , reputable Animal Crossing data miner Ninji detailed how the moving out system works. First, it operates on the prerequisite that you have at least six villagers living on your island. From there, the game uses a volume-based formula to determine the likelihood of a villager asking to move out.
on a given day, the % chance of somebody asking to move is given by + c, where v is the amount of villagers you have, and c is the MoveOutTalkCount, the amount of days since you last told a villager to leave or stay
theres a couple of conditions on that

Make Villagers Move Out With Time Travel
|Time Travel Method|
You can use Time Travel to make the move out condition appear more easily.
Its possible to keep changing the dates to give a different villager the condition instead, so you can keep changing the dates until the villager you want to move out gets it.
The condition moves on randomly, however, so you might have to try several times before you get the villager you want.
