In Animal Crossing New Horizons, players can build a beautiful new home for themselves on a deserted island, and also invite up to 10 other animal villagers to live with them. Here’s everything you need to know about Chadder in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
How to Get Chadder in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Named after the cheese, Chadder is a mouse villager that you can invite in the game via several different methods. The first method is completely reliant on RNG and essentially, whenever you have an open plot on your island, you have until 5 a.m. the next day to find someone to take that spot, or Tom Nook will fill it automatically for you.
If you just let the plot fill up automatically, you’ll have a 1/393 shot of getting Chadder to show up, which means that it’s highly unlikely you’ll get the villager you want.
Alternatively, you could try to improve those odds by going on mystery island tours with Nook Miles Tickets. These cost 2,000 Miles each at the Nook Stop terminal, and if you have enough of them, you can repeatedly farm mystery islands until you finally find Chadder and invite him back to your island. You need to have an open plot on your island in order to encounter new villagers on mystery islands.
It is also possible for villagers to occasionally show up at your campsite in the game. If you have an open plot, you can convince Chadder to move to your island very easily.
Even if you don’t have an open plot, though, it’s still possible to convince him to move in. Just talk to him repeatedly and play his card mini-game, and even if you lose the games, he’ll eventually relent as long as you keep talking to him. Do note that he’ll randomly pick a villager to talk to about moving out if your island is full, so this might cost you a villager that you actually want to keep.
If you happen to know someone who has Chadder on their island, you can also ask if they’re willing to evict him. Once Chadder agrees to move out and is in boxes in his home, you can go over to that player’s island and convince him to move over to yours, assuming you already have a plot available.
Finally, the best, surefire way of getting Chadder is to use his amiibo card. Over at the Nook Stop terminal, choose the Invite a Camper option and invite Chadder to your campsite. Over the next three days, you need to talk to Chadder at the campsite on each day and fulfill his crafting requests. Once you do that for all three days, he’ll agree to move in.
Chadder’s Birthday in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Chadder’s birthday falls on Dec. 15, which makes him a Sagittarius, AKA the best horoscope ever. On his birthday, his usual house furniture will be replaced with party decor, and you can also bring him a gift to celebrate with him. Just remember to get the gift before going to his house, as he’ll ask you about it.
Chadder is a Smug villager, which means that he’s usually very polite and gentlemanly when talking to you. However, Smug types are also rather egotistical and will constantly compliment themselves during conversations with the player.
They get along well with most other personality types including Lazy, Normal, Snooty, and Peppy types. However, they may clash with Cranky villagers.
