The Banded Dragonfly is a rare bug that has been seen in all games that have been released so far.


[edit] How to Catch

The Banded Dragonfly can be found flying throughout any portion of your Town during the specified hours and may land on random signs or flowers as well. It is comparably easier to catch than an average breed of butterfly since they occasionally pause during their paths of flight while butterflies do not, thus making the depth-perceived swing of your Net all the less stressful.

[edit] Player

This is what you player says when you catch an Banded Dragonfly:

[edit] Animal Crossing

"Yes!!! I caught a Banded Dragonfly! Look at those stripes!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I did it! I caught the elusive banded dragonfly!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Whoo hoo! Did you see that? Did you? I caught a banded dragonfly!

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Menu

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

They have tiger stripes and can be hard to catch.

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

These got their name because of their tigerlike banding and evasion skills.

[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"Hoo! You caught a banded dragonfly! Most impressive. Rather difficult, was it? Bit of a hairy fellow, wot? I say, some cosmetic plucking would really help..."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

Banded dragonflies are rather flashy... Just look at those piercing green eyes. The black and yellow body! Not to mention their sheer size and--OH, HORRORS! The beast is looking right at me! Look away, fiend!

[edit] Animal Crossing: New Leaf

[edit] Trivia
