"I caught a grasshopper! Seems it's hopped its last!" —New Leaf

The Grasshopper (イナゴ, Inago?) is a fairly common bug that can be sold a low price. It is found from mid-summer until the start of fall. In GCN games it is only found in the bushes, however in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk it is simply found on the ground in no specific location.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk the in game model incorrectly shows a type of bush-cricket known as a Katydid, while the inventory icons resembled a grasshopper. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf this mistake was amended and the Katydid is now a separate bug.

Donating to the museum

As with all bugs in the Animal Crossing series series, the grasshopper can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers, who will give a talk on the bug.

In Animal Crossing

In Wild World

"Autumn bugs like this one often sound alluring, wot? Even so, one look at their plump, repellant bellies is all it takes to......snap me back to reality! Blech! So very vile..."

In City Folk

After catching a grasshopper, it can be donated to the museum. There, Blathers the curator will speak about it:

"Have you ever noticed that these little fellows have a tendency to easily lose or break a leg? Hoo, yes, you catch one in your net, but in doing so you pop off a leg. Then you grow sad and nauseated. And then the broken-off leg keeps kicking despite being no longer attached! And then you flee in terror!"

The grasshopper can then be found on the central terrace of the bug room, by the easternmost stump, along with the Walking Leaf.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the bug exhibit will list information about this bug.

"Grasshoppers are known for their unique songs, but unlike crickets, it doesn't come from their wings. Rather, the chirping sound comes from their rubbing their legs together. They look like a thicker version of locusts, but some species of grasshoppers actually eat locusts."
