"I caught a blowfish! And that's not just hot air!" —New Leaf

The blowfish (フグ, Fugu?) is a new fish introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It is a winter relative to the puffer fish.

Donating to the museum

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"Blowfish are considered a delicacy, famous for their tempting taste despite being highly poisonous. Blowfish are not poisonous at birth, though, which makes young ones relatively safe for consumption. It's only once they have ingested enough microbes from seawater and food that they become poisonous. When they feel threatened, they suck in air and water to blow themselves up like balloons. This makes them too big to eat without predators being forced to chomp down on their poison quills."

Further information

Fugu in Tank

Animal Crossing's blowfish represents the species Takifugu rubripes in real life, where it is often called the tiger puffer or Japanese puffer (torafugu 虎河豚). The name blowfish (and the Japanese in-game name fugu (フグ) is a generic name for any species of puffer fish. It is notable as the second vertebrate to have its genome sequenced. The scientific name refers to the four large teeth, fused into an upper and lower plate, which are used for crushing the shells of crustaceans and mollusks, their natural prey.
