While wandering along the scenic shore of your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island heaven you may have sometimes encounter something which looks like the water-logged corpse of Donald Duck washed upon your shores. That can be Gulliver, the sea-faring seagull who, despite being a veteran boat captain, appears to Animal Crossing Items fall overboard rather frequently. There is something quite strange about Gulliver’s situation. You would think by now an old sea dog bird or – in this situation – would be better at not tumbling into the sea and nearly drowning. Unless it is not actually his fault. Perhaps there is a much more sinister reason that Gulliver ends up stranded on your island.
Gulliver has been part of the Animal Crossing games because the very beginning of the series. He normally washes up on beaches and asks for the player’s assistance in getting back to his ship. He then sends an item such as a wonderful piece of furniture as a reward for helping him. At New Horizons, every time he winds up on your island that he lets you know that he ought to have the ability to contact his team using his communicator. Except the communicator’s parts have been buried and broken along the beach. This happens each and every time you find him.
How does this exact same scenario maintain occurring? If it only happened once that could be bizarre enough, but you’ll find Gulliver lying face down in the sand a few times and you’ll need to keep digging his communicator. It happens so regularly that he might even complain to Isabelle about your island’s lack of infrastructure! You’d assume that since this seems to happen on a daily basis that his ship would have a life preserver handy for if he falls overboard and his crew would save him.
We’ve got a suspicion that Gulliver’s team may not like him very much. In fact, they may even be actively trying to remove him. If we proceed with the entirety of the Animal Crossing series, Gulliver was a sailor of a form or another for over 19 decades. That is a decent amount of seafaring experience. After running his own boat and buy Animal Crossing Bells being outside on the open water for so long, there’s simply no excuse for constantly falling off of his boat, unless he is a truly awful shipman (which to be fair, is very possible.)
