A Bell as featured in Mario Kart 8

Bells are the currency featured throughout the Animal Crossing, introduced in the Nintendo 64 title Doubutsu no Mori. They heavily resemble a Coin from the Mario franchise but display a star instead of a vertical line.


Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[edit]

Bells appear in the Animal Crossing course featured in the Mario Kart 8 DLC pack, Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8, later included in the base game of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Bells replace coins from other courses, much like how Rupees, the main currency within The Legend of Zelda franchise, replace coins in Hyrule Circuit.

Bells are both scattered throughout the Animal Crossing course and obtainable from Item Boxes. They function identically to coins, giving a greater speed boost to players the more of them they have. The bottom-left display which normally shows a coin counter instead displays a round bag with a star displayed on it, the most common appearance Bells take in the Animal Crossing franchise.
