The Cricket is one of two of it’s breed and one of a couple bugs found in this game which must be found and caught on solid ground.


[edit] How to Catch

Unlike the flying butterflies and tree-clinging cicadas, Crickets are only one of a couple bugs featured in the Animal Crossing series which must be found and caught while dwelling on the ground of your Town, along with Grasshoppers. They are seemingly difficult to keep up with while pursuing with your Net since they tend to hop about at a frequent rate, eluding you with ease unless you are in top bug-catching form.

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Cricket:

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a cricket! That's the ticket!

[edit] Menu

When looking at the Cricket in the bug menu it will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

A member of the grasshopper family, its ears are not on its head, but on its forelegs.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These have ears-- not on their heads, but on their front legs.

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing

I actually find their voices quite soothing. On an autumn evening, when their cries fill the air... Delightful! Their appearance however, is not in the least bit engaging, and actually borders on repugnant. As for myself, I find them no better than cockroaches. Blech! Vile. Vile indeed. Truly, dirtily vile, eh wot?

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Hoo! Well. That IS a lovely sound, now isn't it? Indeed. I wonder if I'm the only one to mistake these things for roaches... I suppose the only sound I've ever heard as roach make is "squish."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Ah, hoo...indeed. Crickets do have a lovely chirp, I must grudgingly admit. Still, that black body, those long feelers... How do people love these when they resemble...THOSE? I bet one couldn't even tell the difference between a cricket and a cockroach in the dark of night...

[edit] Real Life

In real life, there are about 900 different species of Crickets in the world. The Cricket is related to the Grasshopper, for obvious reasons, the only difference is that they’re nocturnal.
