The Red Dragonfly is one of many dragonflies you will find flying throughout your Town. It is available in all three current installments of the Animal Crossing franchise.


[edit] How to Catch

The Red Dragonfly can be found flying anywhere throughout your Town similar to Bees. Seeing as this species generally hovers while flying, they are much easier to catch than you average butterfly as they tend to remain stationary most of the time.

[edit] Player

This is what your player says when you catch a Red Dragonfly:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I caught a red dragonfly! I wonder if it can breathe fire?"

[edit] Animal Forest e+

"アキアカネだ! ゆうやけ こやけの ア力ネいろ!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught a red dragonfly! It's the color of sunset!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught a red dragonfly! It's magic!"

[edit] Menu

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

In the summer, they flit around the mountains, but in the fall they come back to ground level. Like leaves, they turn redder in the fall.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These live in the mountains in summer and the valleys in fall.

[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

Ever looked into the eyes of a red dragonfly, or any dragonfly, for that matter? They've "compound eyes," where multiple eyeballs are stuck together, wot! Just think of all those beady little eyes on you! Blech! How very vile... To be honest, bugs with only TWO eyes make me gag.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Since red dragonflies can't regulate their body temperatures, they only come out in the fall. They actually perish when the heat climbs over 86 degrees Fahrenheit. No summer fun for them, wot?
