Don Resetti is a character from the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Forest +. He worked for the Reset Intervention Bureau and currently works for the Reset Surveillance Center with his younger brother Mr. Resetti. He sometimes appears throughout the series in place of his brother. In contrast with his brother, Don is much calmer and more tolerant of the player's resetting. He will give the player a small lecture about resetting, however will merely advise the player about saving, rather than threatening the player.

In Animal Crossing, he will replace his younger brother the fifth time the game is reset. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, he does not appear at any point in the game. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, there is a small chance that he will randomly appear when the game is reset. He can also sometimes be found at the Resetti Surveillance Center. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Don operates the Resetti Surveillance Center with his brother, and after several visits to the center, Don may give the player his picture.


The name "Don Resetti" is a parody of "Don't Reset". Don also has several regional names. In French and German, Animal Crossing have opted to keep his name the same. In Spanish, Don Resetti is named "Forma T. Ado". In the widely popular Japanese version of the game, he is called ラケットさん (Raketto-san), which translates to Mr. Racket in English. In the English version of the game when speaking to the player, he is simply named "Don".


Animal Crossing

In the original Animal Crossing game, Don Resetti replaces his younger brother the fifth time the player resets. Unlike his brother, he is calm and does not shout or scream at the player for resetting. Once he leaves, he does not return, and Mr. Resetti does not mention him.
