"The agrias butterfly is said to be quite an agile flier. I'm shocked you snared one! Yes, rather impressive! I know for a fact that I could never do it, wot! Or, to be more accurate, catching one would never even cross my mind...Fleeing from one...That I might do!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I must commend you for catching this particular type of butterfly! The Agrias Butterfly's atypical flight pattern has earned it the nickname "King of the Butterflies." It's such a swift flier that most enthusiasts who attempt to catch one rely on traps, eh wot? I daresay I'd lose a race with this flittering thing... Though I'd likely pass out from mortal revulsion first."

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Agrias Butterflies are argued to have the most beautiful wings of all butterfly species. They're capable of flying quite fast, making them more difficult to catch than a number of their peers. Theirs wings sport three colors - red, blue, and black- but many have different patterns and shapes

  • The Agrias Butterfly is tied with the Birdwing for top-selling Butterfly.
