The Peacock Butterfly is one of the various rare butterflies available to capture in both Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, while this species of bug remained absent from the original Animal Crossing.


[edit] How to Catch

Like the Orchid Mantis, the Peacock Butterfly can only be found and captured while flying freely around certain types of hybrid flowers such as black and blue roses. Unlike the aforementioned Mantis, this bug is comparably harder to lose on contact.

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Peacock Butterfly:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

I caught a peacock butterfly! These colors! Beautiful!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a peacock butterfly! How dark and pretty!

[edit] Menu

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Their wings resemble peacock feathers.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These got their names because their wings look like a peacock.

[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

The peacock butterfly gets its name from its coloring, as one would expect. If you ask me, I think it's a bit too ostentatious... But that's just me...

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I trust you've seen a bunch of butterflies fluttering about a puddle before, have you not...? Hoo, yes, there would be peacock butterflies, then. They don't just sip nectar... The beasts drink water, too. And in great, wretched groups, no less! Utterly repugnant!

[edit] Real Life

The Peacock Butterfly is a species of butterfly that is native to Japan. When in the caterpillar stage of their life, these bugs work on a consistent diet of cork tree and prickly-ash plants. When fully grown, the female ends up with more elaborate wing designs than the male.
