    Welcome to the amazing world of Animal Crossing. Once I walked into my 
    local video game store back in September and got my hands on this 
    wonderful game, two things popped into mind: "Wow, a free memory card!" 
    and "I should study an aspect of this game and write about it." Well, 
    both were great ideas, but the second was a little tougher to dissect. 
    First and foremost, just about everything on this game had been written 
    about by time of October, much less now in 2003. However, there was one 
    thing that did not have an FAQ, and needed one: The Gyroids. I have 
    researched thoroughly on many different boards to find most of the 
    information required for making a top-notch in-depth guide.
    
    People often ponder; "What ARE Gyroids?" Not only have I answered that 
    (for the most part, anyway), but I have also provided information on the 
    classes and genres of each Gyroid. Information regarding how to obtain 
    them is also included in this handy little guide. The layout is simple: 
    I throw in the Gyroids by class, then genre. Class meaning Howloid, 
    Quazoid, etc. Genre meaning Tall, Mega, Mini, etc. Then I will provide 
    what colors they are, and their availability. Keep in mind that a lot of 
    the Gyroids from the same class look the same in areas. I will mention 
    that they remind me of their brother/sister Gyroid above them. There's 
    no need to repeat the same information countless times and confuse those 
    who read this FAQ. I've made it as simple as possible. I hope you find 
    my in-depth FAQ resourceful. If you have any questions, suggestions, 
    compliments, or quarrels, please feel free to e-mail me.

    If you need me for anything whatsoever (as long as it has to do with the 
    guide. Sorry, but I don't feel like hearing about how cute your kitten 
    is if I don't really know you, yanno? Actually, kittens are cute..), You 
    can contact me via e-mail, or sometimes IM. I check my e-mail several 
    times a day; so don't hesitate if you have a question!

    Please only e-mail me if it's something you do NOT see in the guide. Try 
    to look for it; If it's not there, feel free to e-mail me.
    
    If you don't know how to e-mail me, just simply bring up a new, 
    unwritten mail (this varies with different services. It should say 
    "Write Mail" on the button, though) and write out my e-mail address. For 
    the subject, type Gyroid FAQ. In the body of the mail, write whatever 
    you like, even hate mail! I don't care what you send, but positive 
    feedback is always nice. But if you're into the hate mail thing, I can 
    dig that, too.

                                II. LEGEND
                                ~~~~~~~~~~
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    
    The Legend is a common name given to the layout of something. If all 
    else fails in explaining the keys in a walkthrough, or in this case an 
    in-depth guide, you put it here. In this case, I will describe the 
    guide's layout.
    
    Class:
    I will denote the classes of Gyroids by using the very nice "attention 
    grabber" technique of mine, which will look like this: ~!~GYROID~!~. 
    This will tell you what the name of the Gyroids in this section are.
    
    Availability:
    This is what will tell you if the certain class of Gyroid is rare or 
    common. They fall into the following categories: Very Common, Common, 
    In-Between, Rare, Very Rare. Keep in mind that this is based off of the 
    eight towns I have played in since September, and it MAY vary. E-Mails 
    regarding me being "off" on my information will be deleted.
    
    Genre:
    The Genre of the Gyroid is simple and easy to remember. They usually 
    break down into categories like Tall, Slim, Mega, Mini, and the regular 
    version of the Gyroid itself.
    
    Color(s):
    This will describe the colors of the given Gyroid. If the colors are off 
    a slight bit, don't blame me, and do not send me correction e-mails. 
    I've tried the game on two different televisions to get the general 
    color scheme. More than likely, it's YOUR television that's the problem. 
    Any e-mails regarding corrections of the colors will be ignored, unless 
    you can give me the proper name of the color.
    
    Traits:
    This will tell the character traits that separate the Gyroids apart. Of 
    course, color also has a lot to do with character distinguishing, as 
    well, but it will not be noted in this area, considering I gave that 
    feature it's own section, making the guide easier to read.

    *************
    ~!~ALLOIDS~!~
    *************
    
    Availability: Rare
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Dark Tan
    Traits:
    Crosses as eyes. Leans back with arms in opposite directions, then 
    springs forward in delight. Okay, so I'm not sure about the "delight" 
    part. There's an object on top of the hat.
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Dark Tan
    Traits:
    Object on the top of the hat for this Alloid, as well. Mouth is squared, 
    and the crosses for eyes are still here. Arms are in opposite 
    directions.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Dark Tan
    Traits: Much thanks goes out to Vyolynce for this description!
    "Basically identical to Mini. Leans to one side and sort of crosses its 
    arms in front of itself (same as Mini)."
    
    *************
    ~!~BOVOIDS~!~
    *************
    
    Availability: In-Between
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Grey
    Traits:
    Swings arms up and down in opposite directions. The Bovoids also have 
    VERY funny shaped noses. They also make cow noises. Moo.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Grey 
    Traits:
    Sporting the same exact features of the Mega, which is pretty rare that 
    a Mega and Tall share the same features in this game... Only difference 
    is the extremely long nose.
    
    **************
    ~!~BOWTOIDS~!~
    **************
    
    Availability: In-Between
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Dark Grey
    Traits:
    Blue bowtie! How cool is that? Not only do these Gyroids make awesome 
    decorations, but their sounds welcome upbeat music with ease. Moves from 
    side to side quickly.
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Dark Grey
    Traits:
    Yellow bowtie! Yeaw! Moves a lot slower than the Mini Bowtoid, which 
    doesn't blend well with a lot of music. The Mini Bowtoid is highly 
    appreciated over the Mega when it comes to music.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Dark Grey
    Traits:
    Light Green bowtie, which looks awesome on this color. Very long mouth. 
    Even worse for music than the Mega Bowtoid when in comparison to the 
    Mini Bowtoid.
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Dark Grey
    Traits: Thanks goes out to GameFAQs user ChMooKie
    "Has a whitish bowtie, a black finish, and moves it's arms side to side. 
    It lets out a rather deep moan every two seconds. It is one of my 
    favorites because of it's suave movement and look."
    
    **************
    ~!~BUZZOIDS~!~
    **************
    
    Availability: In-Between
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Green
    Traits:
    Violently shakes back and forth, as if being electrocuted. Sounds harsh, 
    I know. The mouth is opened widely, and his arms are down. The colors 
    have patterns mixing with a yellow. A really cool looking Gyroid...
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Green
    Traits:
    ...But an even better looking Gyroid exists as the Regular Buzzoid. 
    Sporting the same features, but larger. He does do one thing 
    differently, however, and that's moving his arms violently in a 
    "Victory" motion.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Green
    Traits:
    Arms are in opposite directions. Leans forwards and shakes very 
    violently in a truly disturbing manner. This would've been a great 
    Gyroid, however, it leans forward a bit too much, so you can't see it 
    very well. What a shame.
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Oliver Green
    Traits: Thanks to Crystal for this information! Also, to Rocketlex!
    "Sandy yellow spots and dark drown trim. (Almost looks like 
    a honeycomb pattern.) Has a tall gapping mouth with green eyes placed 
    very high"
    -
    "It's has round eyes and a rather small round 
    mouth (a pretty average face, as gyroids go.)  It 
    leans back and makes a very cool "Werrrp" noise (goes 
    great with music).  It's one of my favorite gyroids, 
    because the noise it makes is so cool to listen to."
    
    ***************
    ~!~CLANKOIDS~!~
    ***************
    
    Availability: Very Rare
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Old, Tacky 1979 Muscle Car Green
    Traits:
    Don't let the color fool you, as it works well with this Gyroid. This is 
    one of the few Gyroids that has a personality simply by its looks. Wide 
    eyes accompany petrified-shaped mouth. The arms have the "Teapot" 
    position.
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Old, Tacky 1979 Muscle Car Green
    Traits:
    Thanks to anna for this info!
    "Has anopen square mouth and little lines for eyes, with green and white 
    stripes on the hat and bottom"
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Old, Tacky 1979 Muscle Car Green
    Traits:
    Thanks to anna, yet again, for this information!
    "The Mega has the same colors, stripes, and mouth, with smallish, round, 
    surprised-looking eyes. his arms are bent upward, he moves them so that 
    he's hitting his head. it makes him look stressed. the mini's arms do 
    the same thing, only bent downward, like putting its hands on its hips. 
    they both make noises like hitting garbage cans, but it goes really 
    nicely with K.K. Ska!"
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Old, Tacky 1979 Muscle Car Green
    Traits: Slightly taller and thinner than Mini Clankoid, has more of a 
    "happy" type expression, unlike his brothers. [Thanks to Mike Corral for 
    this info]
    
    
    
    ***************
    ~!~CROAKOIDS~!~
    ***************
    
    Availability: Rare
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Green
    Traits:
    Blushy cheeked, indeed. The Croakoid has a mossy-like hat, which odds to 
    its mystery of why it's frowning. It "Hulk's Up" (ala Hulk Hogan) and 
    hunches over. A very odd Gyroid.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Purple
    Traits:
    More blushy cheeks here, as well. Frowning big time while waving his 
    poor arms. Why so sad?
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): "Rusted Aqua"
    Traits:
    Thanks to reader Joseph Gvora for this info!
    "looks like a trash can. It bangs it's head with his 2 teapotty arms."
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Orange
    Traits: Thanks to reader Spyro06 for this information!
    "It looks almost like a Mega Croakoid, except it's orange instead of 
    purplish. It also has it's arms up in the air, not on it's hips"
    
    
    **************
    ~!~DEKKOIDS~!~
    **************
    
    Availability: Common
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Skin Colored with Red Polka-Dots
    Traits:
    Odd designs litter the hat of this Gyroid. One of the very few Gyroids 
    to talk, as it says its name. "Dekkoid!" 
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Yellow with Red Polka-Dots
    Traits:
    Same designs and sounds. Nothing special.
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Light Green with Green Polka-Dots
    Traits:
    Pretty much the same traits yet again, except it leans over farther than 
    the others. Sounds really cool with a regular Oombloid in the same room.
    
    ***************
    ~!~DINGLOIDS~!~
    ***************
    
    Availability: Very Common
    
    Genre: Squat
    Color(s): Brown
    Traits:
    Bags are under the eyes. Must be stressed with much lack of sleep. 
    Perfect for the insomniac Animal Crossing player. Different shades of 
    brown with yellow trim. Object on the hat, as well. Stretches back in 
    motion.
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Brown
    Traits:
    Leans forward only to spring backwards at times. Other than this, a lot 
    like the Squat Dingloid. 
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Brown
    Traits:
    Leans forward and falls back, only to catch himself and repeat it. Also, 
    his arms look broken. This is a very different Gyroid.
    
    Genre: Wee
    Color(s): Brown
    Traits: Thanks to Skozzy13 for this information.
    "The Wee Dingloid is exactly the same as the other Dingloids, only 
    smaller. It makes a high pitch ding when it leans forward.   
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Brown
    Traits: Thanks to Skozzy13 for this info
    "The Mega Dingloid is almost exactly the same size as the Squat 
    Dingloid, maybe a little smaller, but the Mega Dingloid has a wider 
    mouth and circular eyes, not ovals. It is the same color as the others 
    and has the same designs and a similar "ding" sound, only lower in 
    pitch."
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Brown
    Traits: Much thanks goes out to Vyolynce for this description!
    "Roughly same size as Wee, with a different tone (can't remember if it's 
    higher or lower pitch)"
    
    **************
    ~!~DINKOIDS~!~
    **************
    
    Availability: Rare
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): White
    Traits:
    The Dinkoid is the R2-D2 of Animal Crossing. Yes, it's a little white 
    robot version of a Gyroid. It even has a control panel in front, below 
    the mouth, and a cooling vent in back! Also included is an antenna atop 
    the head. Yellow eyes, squared mouth, and the arms move in opposite 
    fashion. 
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): White
    Traits:
    Pretty much identical to the Mini Dinkoid. It has purple eyes, and its 
    movement is also very slow.
    
    ***************
    ~!~DRILLOIDS~!~
    ***************
    
    Availability: Very Rare
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Red
    Traits:
    "Lightning" object on top of hat. Resembles Rustoids in the face. Red 
    color fades towards the eyes. Arms move very violently as he strikes 
    himself in the head. He probably has issues. =P
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Red
    Traits:
    Mega thanks to reader wizardman for this update!
    "He has VERY tiny eyes, and his mouth is wide open. He moves his arms 
    like he's drilling something.
    He does have a lightning rod-like antenna of the top of his head. He 
    looks like he's annoyed when he's drilling."
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Red
    Traits: Thanks to Sephimoth24 for this info.
    "He has features almost identical to the regular and mini Drilloids, 
    except they are big... like most mega-versions of the Gyroids."
    
    ***************
    ~!~DROPLOIDS~!~
    ***************
    
    Availability: Very Rare
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Purple
    Traits:
    This is the cliche Clown character in Gyroid form. Pink nose and pink

    Availability: In-Between
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Red
    Traits:
    Sporting an awesome look, the Timpanoid series is perfect for both the 
    look of your rooms, as well as going along with the music, as they drum 
    to the beat. The Mini Timpanoid, like the others, has a "Fire" design 
    with yellow hat. Plays the "drums" slowly.
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Red
    Traits:
    My personal favorite out of the Timpanoid series of Gyroids. The only 
    different between this one and the Mini is that this one plays the 
    "drums" at a good pace.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Red
    Traits:
    Pretty much the same as the others... Only difference is that he plays 
    the "drums" fairly fast with no rhythm. Blah.
    
    Thanks to reader Master Of Gyroids for this information:
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): red with yellow top
    Traits: 
    This Gyroid moves its arms just like the regular Timpanoid except it 
    moves its arms a lot faster.

    Availability: In-Between
    
    Genre: Mini
    Color(s): Pink
    Traits:
    Looks like a pig. Yup, A pig Gyroid. Who woulda thunk it? It also looks 
    like it's snoring. A snoring pig. Weird.
    
    Genre: Mega
    Color(s): Pink
    Traits:
    Hides its face in a very, very poor manner. It needs to learn from the 
    master of hiding its face, Michael Jackson!
    
    Genre: Regular
    Color(s): Pink
    Traits:
    One hand goes in one direction over its face, as the other hand goes in 
    the other. What do these Tootoids want to be? Michael Jackson and 
    Prince's child?

    Availability: Common

    Blushy cheeks, with a pretty little bow on top of its head. She shakes

    other is down.
    
    Genre: Tall
    Color(s): Pink (less than others)

    Around the same traits as the other Warbloids. Both arms are down, not

    Here is where you can find answers to all of your questions that you may 
    have! Enjoy!
    
    
    Q. What are Gyroids?
    ~
    A. Gyroids are little "clay" figures that dance, sing, and bebop around 
    your house when you lay them down. They are simply for decoration, and 
    getting a better rating on your house. While I don't believe they are 
    clay, Nintendo insists they are. Collecting Gyroids is one of the fun 
    parts of Animal Crossing, as there are so many to collect. Crystal sent 
    in this VERY good description of the Gyroid, and their history! THANKS 
    CRYSTAL!!! "Oh yeah, and a bit of history for you. I'm guessing you 
    don't know this as you don't see why they're made of clay. If you do, 
    please don't be insulted! Gyroids were called Haniwa Guardians in the 
    japanese version of the game. Haniwa figures are an old asian tradition 
    that were most commonly seen guarding tombs. They are made of unfired 
    clay and are always cylindrical. Usually they have human features. Their 
    arms were quite simple (like a kid making snakes with play-doh) and 
    early haniwa have very simplified facial features too. They often had 
    hollowed out circles to represent eyes and mouth (like a jake-o-lanturn) 
    and that distinguishing bowl-like hat. I think they our gyroids are 
    found in the ground only after it rains because they are formed of clay 
    like the haniwa!"
    
    Q. Can I replace my Gyroid outside of my house with one of my collected 
    Gyroids?
    ~
    A. No. I wish you could, though, because my Mega Howloid would be 
    screaming at every passerby!
    
    Q. Can I turn off my Gyroids?
    ~
    A. Yes. Walk up to them and hit the A Button. This will make their arms 
    move in an odd fashion, and they will stop dancing.
    
    Q. How come some of my Gyroids stop moving randomly?
    ~
    A. You can only keep 14 Moving/Dancing/Singing Gyroids in one room at a 
    time. After that, one will stop moving. After 16 are dropped, 2 will 
    stop moving. 17 dropped, 3 will stop, etc.
    
    Q. Does that mean I have a limit on how many Gyroids I can keep in one 
    room?
    ~
    A. Certainly not. You can store as many Gyroids in your house as you 
    want, as long as you have room. But if you want any movement out of 
    them, 14 is the limit per room. This means 14 in the Basement, Living 
    Room, Attic, and Beach House. If it doesn't bother you that the Gyroids 
    are sitting still, then knock yourself out and store as many as your 
    little heart wishes.
    
    Q. Can I buy my Gyroids back from Tom Nooks if I sell them or give them 
    away?
    ~
    A. Sadly, you cannot.
    
    Q. Is it possible for your neighbors to give you Gyroids?
    ~
    A. No.
    
    Q. Then where can I find Gyroids?
    ~
    A. After every time it rains/snows, there will be three (3) fresh 
    Gyroids in the ground. You can find these Gyroids by digging up the "X" 
    shaped holes in the ground, much like fossils. Another alternative to 
    getting Gyroids is going to the Game Boy Advance "Animal Island" 
    feature, and fishing and/or scooping them up with the net. Be sure to 
    keep your islander happy by feeding it fruit until it drops money. Pay 
    close attention to the eyes!
    
    Q. Can I trade Gyroids?
    ~
    A. Nope.
    
    Q. Are any Gyroids more rare than others?
    ~
    A. Yes, in theory. I've tested this with several different villages and 
    researched this thoroughly, and to my belief, some classes are more rare 
    than others.
    
    Q. How many Gyroids are there?
    ~
    A. A LOT! An estimated guess by reader Waylon Calhoun, which seems 
    pretty valid, is 128 Gyroids in the set. This FAQ does NOT list every 
    Gyroid at this moment, only the ones myself and many others on the 
    GameFAQs Animal Crossing board have seen. Eventually, this FAQ will list 
    every Gyroid. If you have one that isn't on our list, please e-mail me 
    at Zoopnova@aol.com with the correct name. Please make sure the spelling 
    is correct for each and every Gyroid. And please, no "Himroid" jokes. 
    They aren't that funny. ;-)
    
    Q. Can I plant my Gyroids on Animal Island and get something new?
    ~
    A. Yes, you can. Reader Vyolynce sent this tip in: "Also, you don't 
    mention that if you bury Gyroids on Animal Island, your 
    islander (if happy and armed with a shovel) will dig them up and replace 
    them with different types. Great for filling out the catalog and 
    clearing out a collection of unwanted extras. If the islander is not 
    completely happy, he may replace the gyroid with a bag of 1,000 bells, 
    which is still more than the 828 you'd get from Nook."

    As usual in my guides, the first person to get in the credits has to be 
    GameFAQs owner Jeff Veasey (CjayC). This guy has taken the video gaming 
    community and made it look like a respectful hobby. Not too many people 
    can get mentioned positively in Entertainment Weekly, or especially 
    Penny Arcade. Thanks Ceejay, you own all. Also, thanks to Stephen Ng 
    from IGN.com. He's running a strong program over there. Keep up the good 
    work, Stephen.
    
    Big thanks to Nintendo... Not too many people could take such a simple 
    concept and turn it into a huge deal worldwide, yet they do it countless 
    times over. You guys rock.
    
    Thanks goes to my lovely girlfriend, Valerie Meerschaert, for inspiring 
    me to keep working on this. I submitted this before to GameFAQs, and it 
    was denied, sadly. However, she encouraged me to keep working on this 
    until I made it better, which I think I did... I hope. 
    
    Thanks to Devin Morgan for being a good trader, and respectful fellow. 
    Also, thanks to the guy that sent me the two free NES games when I 
    deleted mine in the mail. I'm not sure of your name, but you know who 
    you are.
