Wisp (Japanese name: ゆうたろう, Yutarou) is a special character whom is known as a Spirit in Animal Crossing and a Genie in Animal Crossing: City Folk. He appeared in mostly every game of the Animal Crossing Series excluding Animal Forest and Animal Crossing: Wild World. He typically appears between 10PM to 4AM. Wisp supposedly represents Boo from Mario.


[edit] Appearance

Wisp has a slight similarity to Boo, from Mario. His body is mostly white, with a small tail and two tiny arms. His lips seem to be cream-coloured and it appears that Wisp actually has some missing teeth when he talks. He wears a small, blue turban-like hat which, has a red gem with a thin yellow outline. A feather is also placed on the hat of many colours, these colours include white, green, blue, with the green and blue being in two different shades each. Wisp has regular round black eyes and light grey eyebrows.

[edit] How do I find him in Animal Crossing?

Wisp will be in your town on any random night from 8:00pm until 4:00am. He will appear in a random acre in your town. Once you find him, he will say that he knows you are in a hurry, but he needs some urgent help. He wants you to capture five spirits with your net. They are scattered all over your town, and this task might take a lot of time because of how big your town is. The best technique to use is to start from the very top of your town and scan it, searching every area possible for where a spirit might be. Spirits are light pink and have a swirl inside of them. They will be floating. After you find all five of them, head back to Wisp and he will give you one out of three wishes.

[edit] Rewards

1. Weeds - He will pull all of your weeds that are in your town.

2. Paint your roof any color you want. His will give you a selection of colors and you choose which one you would like your roof to be.

3. Give you an item you don't already own. he will not give you K.K. Slider music or Not For Sale items.

[edit] How do I find him in Animal Crossing: City Folk?

Wisp could be easy to find ... there's only one problem - he is invisible. He will appear in your town on a random day; any day of the week. The only time that you may find him is when it is late at night. However, there is a surefire way of knowing that he is in your town that day. If you see a genie lamp laying on the ground near a tree or a building, that guarantees that Wisp is in your town tonight. If you find Wisp before the lamp, then you must find the lamp after you talk to Wisp. If you find the lamp first, search around for Wisp - he is usually found near the beach but could be anywhere. Eventually a text box will pop up and Wisp will say "Psst ... come here." You will then have to play a game where he moves and you have to find him. After you catch up to Wisp yet again, he will say that he is scared and asks you to meet him in your attic. Proceed to your attic and rub your lamp. Wisp will appear and offer to grant you one of three wishes.

[edit] Things to consider

  • If you do not find Wisp that night, then the lamp is rendered useless.
  • As soon as you turn the empty lamp into a magic lamp then you can keep it and use it whenever you want.

[edit] Rewards

1. Weeds - he will pick all of the weeds from your town.

2. Smash Roaches - Wisp will get rid of all of the cockroaches that are living in your house.

3. Give Me Stuff - Hat, Accessory, or Furniture - once you choose, he will give you a random item.
