Animal Crossing: New Horizons really gets the creative juices flowing for every player. The most enjoyable part of the game is customizing almost everything present on the player's island.

Players can form good bonds with villagers living on their island. If they become good enough friends, they will notice that every villager has a unique catchphrase which they usually say at the end of sentences.

However, the more exciting part about this is that after certain conditions are met, players have the option to customize this catchphrase too! So, they can assign unique catchphrases to the villagers on their island, which can keep up with the theme of the island.

Moreover, catchphrases are, well, rather catchy. This means that players can often hear villagers picking up catchphrases from other villagers. Therefore, it is best to pick a neutral catchphrase that can go with the personality of every villager, and does not sound out of place when they say it.
