The Gar is one of many rare, oversized, river-based fish which can be caught in both Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, such as the Stringfish and Arapaima.


[edit] Player

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

I caught a gar! Nose like a GARden hose!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a gar! Gar har har HAAAAR!

This is what the meny will say when you catch the Gar:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

They resemble alligators, and are so large, they can even eat waterfowl.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These ancient, huge, alligator-like fish have been known to eat waterfowl.

This is what Blathers will say when you donate this fish:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

(Your Player's Name), if you plan to raise a gar at home, I have some crucial advice. You must be very careful not to overfeed it! These brutes grow much faster than you might suspect, eh wot? Before you know it, it could be bigger than you can handle! The horror!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Hoo, I daresay you've really fished a winner this time, my dear owlet! Gar can grow to massive sizes--up to 120 inches! Let's hope this new addition to our museum can grow to equally enormous size..."

[edit] Trivia

  • Despite being cheaper than the Stringfish, the Gar is one of the largest river-based fish in the Animal Crossing series so far.

[edit] Real Life

The Gar's alligator-like features closely resemble it's survival habits, being just as sneaky and vicious as the reptile it represents. It is so aggressive that it has even been known to eat water-based birds such as ducks and harons.

[edit] Appearance

The Gar's face and snout closely looks like that of an alligator and has a brown/tan colour scheme embedded in it's skin. This particular breed of fish has even known to have been mistaken for the average Swordfish from time to time.
