How to Unlock Reactions

Learn from Villagers

ACNH - Use Reactions.png

All Reactions are taught by villagers, and can only be unlocked while you're outside.

When walking around your island, sometimes a villager will come running to you while calling your name (or a nickname, if you have any!). Approach and press A to talk to them, and they might teach you a new Reaction.

If it's your first time, they will tell you about Reactions, as well as teach you your first Reaction: Joy.

There are 55 Reactions in Total

ACNH - Reaction List First Page

There are 44 Reactions in the main game, 2 more from the Halloween update, and lastly the 9 from the Winter Update.

Reactions are great for photos or when playing with others, so let's try getting them all!

Halloween and Fall Update

Reactions Depend on Villager Personality

ACNH - Learn Daydreaing Reaction from Fauna.png

It seems like certain types of personalities will teach you specific Reactions.

Friendship Might Also Play a Role

On our Walkthrough team, a member was missing a Snooty villager on their island and was unable to unlock the Love reaction. After getting a Snooty villager, they were finally able to learn Love from them after befriending them!

Some Reactions, like Love and Showmanship, seem to only be unlocked once you reach a certain friendship level with your villagers.
