Animal Crossing Rumble Explosion (どうぶつの森ランブル爆発 Dōbutsu no Mori Explosion Rumble in Japan, Animal Crossing Explosive Brawl in UK, and Animal Crossing Super Brawl in Australia) Is a Simulation/Fighting game develop and published by Nintendo. The game picks up from the events of Animal Crossing: Bluebear's Adventure, it features Crazy Redd's new evil plot. It is set 1 one year after it's predecessor. It is the second game in the series


A tournament is held in Smashville and all adventurers from around the world gather to become the "King of the Wild World". But, danger still lurks on the City of Battles. Crazy Redd is searching for an ancient energy called "Pyrus" that can give a mortal God-given powers of Immortality. While some fighters are unaware of the energy, Bluebear is concerned of Goldy, a toad that can create fire from her hands. While a Mysterious white sheep haunts Stitches and Bluebear, and a masked animal haunts Bluebear and her friends. Crazy Redd Is on the hunt to steal 7 amulets that belong to 7 special people with the same attributes.

As the 7 Amulets names and their respective owners are:


Aqua-Roald and Emily (Broken into two pieces)

Corvus-Tom Nook

Flora-Bluebear (The amulet was sealed in the net Bluebear uses, allowing her to summon insects)


The Balance-Amy and Lucas (Amy has white wings while Lucas has black wings)


As the tournament goes on Redd's plan rises. After the kidnap of Maple and Pippy, the tournament's finals was delayed. For the remaining contestants were Bluebear and Daisy vs Stitches and Kody. But Peanut stole Bluebear's amulet rendering Bluebear useless without her net. Redd kidnaps everyone who has the amulets. As Tom Nook finds out he leads a group to save them. They search everywhere until they found a cave, inside it was a giant crystal containing all of the kidnapped people. Tom Nook and his group battle with Redd and his forces. After the battle, Redd's forces fell. The masked man appears in Redd's place and escapes he summon a dark gap and suddenly sucks Fluffy in the hole, Bluebear approaches her, Fluffy reveals her identity to Bluebear and her relationship to Emily. She gave Bluebear a heart-shaped key, and describes it as "Two Hearts that were Separated." As the hole closes Bluebear's face was curious. In their victory party, Bluebear shows Stitches the key. And they wonder what does it do. And the scene fades, concluding the plot of the game.
