Mr. Resetti (リセットさん, Reset-san) is a character from the Animal Crossing series.

In the first four Animal Crossing games, Mr. Resetti appears whenever the player walks out their house after resetting the system or turning the power off without saving. Mr. Resetti then proceeds to bother the player by giving a long lecture on how "resetting" the game is bad. The player usually has to apologize to Mr. Resetti in order for him to leave. Sometimes though, apologizing isn't enough for Mr. Resetti: he keeps shouting, and sometimes make the player repeat a phrase that is meant to humiliate them (such as "I'm dirt"). He also sometimes gives a code that he says and the player must type it correctly.

Mr. Resetti's role in the Animal Crossing franchise has diminished in recent years due to real-world incidents of him making young players cry - the aggressiveness and length of his lectures were toned down in New Leaf; while in New Horizons he is implied to run Rescue Service in-game alongside his brother Don Resetti due to the autosave feature rendering their original jobs obsolete. He was formally added in New Horizons version 2.0 and can be invited to the The Roost or to the archipelago for a vacation home by Paradise Planning. The dialog that he gives to the player in The Roost implies that he has become calmer and more tolerant to players resetting since he was removed from his roles in the previous games. He also makes a small cameo should one's internet connection fail while playing online, alluding to the fact that the game is forced to reset to the last save as to not cause save corruption.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Mr. Resetti only appears as a trophy.


Because Melee was released before Animal Crossing internationally, Mr. Resetti's first appearance is listed on his trophy as "Future Release".

Mr. Resetti
Prepare to receive a really long talking-to if you reset this game: the next time you play, Mr. Resetti will be waiting to deliver his best scolding. No matter what your intentions are, pressing the RESET Button will bring you face-to-face with this fervent character. Sometimes, the only way to shut him up is to apologize.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

Mr. Resetti yelling

Mr. Resetti makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an Assist Trophy, where he simply sits where he was released and lectures the players with long monologues that can last for over a minute before leaving with his signature "SCRAM!". His large text boxes obscure a large section of the upper playing field, which can be distracting to fighters, or the lower area of the screen (depending on his position), obscuring the damage percentages. He will respond to certain events, such as him falling off the playing field on a moving stage, where he will say, "H-hey! Don't you ditch me punk!". It's possible to interact with him by attacking him, but doing so only adds to his complaining. If a player attacks Mr. Resetti enough, he will respond with an explosion, while asking the attacker to "QUIET DOWN, WILL YA!". This explosion can harm players. He will also block projectiles that are thrown at him.

Depending on the time of day, Mr. Resetti may make a comment (for example, at night, Mr. Resetti tells players to "Get some shut-eye", adding that "Staying up late is for punks"). He will also do impressions of characters on the field (calling them by their player name if those are being used, and usually their win screen taunt). Mr. Resetti's text box will be visible regardless of the camera position, and even show up on Snapshots.

List of speeches[edit]

One-player glitch[edit]

By entering a match with only one player by means of hacking and getting Resetti out of an Assist Trophy, Mr. Resetti is forced to say his own name instead of the nonexistent second player's name, in the sentence "[Player 1].... [Player 2].... You'd be runnin' home to Mama!". The glitched message will appear as "[Player 1].... Resetti.... You'd be runnin' home to Mama!". Presumably, the game is programmed to display "Resetti" if there is any sort of error getting the intended target's name, using his as placeholder.

Mr. Resetti
A mole wearing a hard hat who'll show up when you restart your game without having saved. He pops up and lets you know in no uncertain terms the importance of saving your game. The problem is, his speeches are entertaining enough to warrant breaking the rules at least once. In Animal Crossing, his brother Don appears too. He's the polar opposite of his sibling.

A character who normally appears from underground to lecture the player. However, he is not always underground--in Animal Crossing: Wild World, he can be found sipping coffee at the Roost if you go at a certain time on a certain day. In the Japanese-only "e+" version, he works at a so-called "Resetti Observation Center" where you can pop in for a visit.

NTSC Be sure to save your game before you turn it off, or this guy will show up screaming "AAAAAAAARGH!" Sonny Resetti and his favorite brother, Don, keep an eye out for sudden game resets, and they aren't shy about reminding you to save often. Best not to aggravate them needlessly...
PAL Forget to save your game before stopping for the day? "GRRAAAAH!" You're going to hear from Mr. Resetti! He and his brother, Don, keep an eye out for reckless resetting and give you a, er...gentle reminder not to. Tempted to "forget" so you can meet them again? Don't. Just don't.
