The Walker Cicada is a rare bug first introduced in Animal Crossing and came back in Animal Crossing: Wild World and in Animal Crossing: City Folk as well.


[edit] How to Catch

The Walker Cicada's difficulty to catch is medium. The Walker Cicada will be on the trunk of any tree. When you see one, take out your net and face the tree. Make a run towards it and when you get close enough, swing your net. If you miss your target or come too close to the bug, it will fly away and disappear in a hurry.

Depending on where you are in the world, the cry of the walker cicada changes. Who do they think they are? Using dialects and whatnot! I mean, really!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Apparently, walker cicadas cry out in an attempt to obscure the calls of other, similar cicadas. I should think that to the average fellow, it just sounds like the cicadas are merely singing together. In any case, I don't suggest looking for them. Their voices may fascinate, but their faces nauseate!"

[edit] Trivia

  • The Walker Cicada is about 44 meters long.
  • Walker Cicadas have been known to scare players due to their camouflage skills.

[edit] Real Life
