2.A completely unique species
Tom Nock's species is often misunderstood by fans. In the English version of the game, he's clearly a raccoon.However, Tom is no ordinary old raccoon: he is a Japanese Tanuki raccoon, a special animal subspecies. No other villager was of the same species as Tom and his two nephews, which gave him a very unique personality and made him easy to recognize.
3. It's been a long time
Nock is a character that appears in almost every animal crossing game. From the beginning, he was always there, playing some sort of role, either as a shopkeeper or as a manager of buildings and infrastructure. This alone has cemented his status as the ultimate mascot of the series, as evidenced by the fact that his company's logo frequently appears on numerous animal Cross products.
4.Let everyone have a house.
Tom not only provides islands by creating island vacation packages, he also provides housing for everyone. When people first arrived on the island, he gave everyone a tent and they could camp anywhere they liked. In addition, when players upgrade their houses , Tom takes care of the building process. The same thing happened to ordinary villagers, whose living Spaces were upgraded from tents to ordinary villagers' houses.
5. Provide most of the programs
Without all the furniture and other Animal Crossing Items, animal crossing wouldn't be an amazingly popular game. Of course, without real shops or at least some form of business on the island, it would be impossible to get all of these things. That's why Tom is so important to the game, because he provides all the items to help players decorate their houses and turn the island into a beautiful thing.
