The Raja Brooke is a rare butterfly that was first introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk


[edit] How to Catch

Raja Brooke's are strange in the fact that they are attracted to freshwater and not flowers however this makes them tricky to catch as they will fly from one side of the water to the next. They are also quite fast so they have a possibility of escaping. If you wait till it get near the edge of the water and swing your net then you have a good chance of catching it.

[edit] Player

When the player catches the Raja Brooke, they will say this:

"Flashing black wings with bright green markings make it say to identify."

[edit] Museum

Blather will say this when you donate the Raja Brooke:

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I must say, I'm quite impressed with your ability to catch such an impressive butterfly... The Raja Brooke butterfly, I must tell you, is one of the larger tiger butterflies. Naturally, its antennae and proboscis also rank as some of the largest around. Be not proud, vile beast! Your cute red collar and fancy name do not fool Blathers!"

[edit] Trivia

  • Alternatly Raja Brooke can be spelt " Rajah Brooke" and because of this it is commonly thought that Animal Crossing have made a spelling error, however both spellings are accepted.
  • The Raja Brooke is 140mm in size.
