"Whoa! A golden fish. I think this is a dorado! Who knew they lived here!?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"I caught a dorado! Now that's rad-o!"

[edit] Menu

This is what the menu will say when you catch a Dorado:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"Dorado" means "golden," and this fish is that! Everybody wants to catch one once!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Dorado" means "golden". Anyone that fishes would love to catch one.

[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"Hoo my! Congratulations are in order! You've finally caught one, eh wot? Did the mighty dorado put up a good scrum? You've passed the test! You're initiated into the secret club of fisher folk!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"My hoo, I never dreamed someone in this town would hook a dorado! It's a fish that lives up to the image of El Dorado it conjures... I could gaze upon it all day!"

[edit] Trivia

  • The Dorado is one of the four fishes in the Animal Crossing series that sells for 15,000 Bells.
  • This is the rarest fish available in the river when it is summertime.
  • The size of the Dorado is about 91cm.

[edit] Real Life

The Dorado that is portrayed in Animal Crossing is actually the Golden Dorado, which is not similar at all to a normal saltwater fish named Dorado as well. Generally, Golden Dorados are great hunters because of their sharp teeth and their powerful jaws. Golden Dorados vary in weight. Some may be as light as six pounds, while the largest recorded weight is sixty eight pounds. They live in South America, travel in tiny groups, and prey on other fish and sometimes birds.
