A beehive is an item in the Animal Crossing series that can be found in the town's trees, which it can be shaken out of. Upon making contact with the ground, the beehive spawns a bee swarm that chases the player before disappearing. The swarm continues its pursuit until the player gets stung (resulting in a swollen left eye), enters a building, saves and quits, or catches a bee with their net. If the player catches a bee, they can donate it to Blathers at the Museum.


Doubutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing[edit]

Beehives first appear in Doubutsu no Mori and its GameCube port, Animal Crossing, randomly dropping out of shaking trees. In this game, only five appear per day, with one beehive spawning per acre. When one drops, a swarm of Bees will immediately chase after the player after they display a shocked expression at the sight. The player can only escape them by catching them in a net, or entering a building. After the swarm appears, the beehive itself vanishes.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]


The beehive is an unused item in Animal Crossing: Wild World.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

Beehives can be sold for 500 at Re-Tail or to be used in a recipe for the Harvest Festival. None will appear when the town gate is open for visitors.

Other appearances[edit]

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U[edit]

Beehives appear as throwable items in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. When the hive is thrown, a bee swarm will spawn and attack the opponent who is hit. However, if the beehive fails to make contact with an opponent, the thrower will be attacked instead. Each sting deals 2 to 4 percentage points of damage, and the bees remain on the stage for 10 seconds - chasing their target wherever they go (similar to how they act in the "Animal Crossing series" of games). In addition, on variations of the Tortimer Island stage where there are trees, a beehive can occasionally be found, though it is invisible to players until the tree holding the hive is struck.

NTSC-U: An example of fine architecture constructed by insects, these bees are not shy about defending their hard work. Throw this at an enemy to direct their hate at that player. If the bees are after you, you can shake them for a while with some evasive maneuvers, but they'll track you down.

PAL: Bees don't like it when people destroy their home, so if you break a beehive, they'll come out looking for revenge. Even if you innocently had the beehive thrown at you, you'll be the target. You can dodge all you want, but they'll probably get you in the end, and their stings'll do a LOT of damage.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

The beehive is set to reappear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
