The Arowana is a rare fish first introduced in Animal Crossing and makes further appearances in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. Despite its golden appearance, the Arowana does not sell for the highest amount of Bells in the game, but it comes close!


[edit] Player

This is what you player says when you catch an Arowana:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"I caught an arowana! It's the golden dragon fish! I wonder what it's worth..."

[edit] Animal Forest e+

"アロワナが 釣れた! 金ピカで、ゴ―ジヤス!! 高く完れかなあ?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I caught an arowana! It's golden and beautiful!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"It's golden and gorgeous!"

[edit] Menu

This is what the menu will say when you catch an Arowana:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

The male raises its young in its mouth. While doing this, he eats nothing. What dedication.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These ancient fish are popular pets said to grow attached to their owners.

[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I've never heard of a dish made with arowana... However, I find it hard to believe they're inedible. People eat ANYTHING. Still, they're probably more profitable to sell for viewing than for eating."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"It's said that arowana have retained the same appearance for nearly 100 million years! That's far longer than people or owls have been around... Hoo, the sights they must have seen... There's a bit of mystery about them, is there not? A fitting appearance for the king of tropical fish!"

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Real Life

An Arowana in real life

In real life feng shui, the Arowana is believed to bring good luck. It is thought that the response of the Arowana to a visitor will tell you whether the visitor is either an enemy or a friend.

[edit] Appearance

The Arowana is a freshwater fish that has a strangely long body.
