Flick is a special character who debuted in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He runs the Bug-Off every three weeks during the summer, replacing the role of Nat from previous games.

He will appear on random weekdays after the Resident Services have been upgraded to a building. He will show up at least once every three weeks. Flick offers to buy bugs from the player at a price 50 % higher than the store price. He leaves at 5 AM the following day. Once per visit, the player can commission him to make a model of a bug, which requires giving Flick 3 specimen of the same bug.


Upon interacting with Flick, he will say something relating to bugs before apologizing for thinking out loud. This dialog will change every time the player interacts with him.

  • "Am I truly listening to the needs of the <bug> with every ear I possess?"
  • "If a <bug> were to manifest before me, how would I react? Laughter? Weeping?"
  • "If you find yourself where there are no bugs...you have to visualize and manifest them yourself!
    Close your eyes. Reach with your mind. Feel the bugs. Feel them crawling all over your skin. Dissolve."
  • "It doesn't matter how much I treasure the bugs. They'll never notice what I do for them..."
  • "It is sheer hubris to think that we could ever learn everything about bugs.
    Bugs are an experience. They are a conversation...one between the viewer and the universe."
  • "Larva, pupa, adulthood, final transcendence... They become more exalted with every metamorphosis!"
  • "They reflect this sullied world, yet retain their own beauty... I am bewitched by those compound eyes."
  • "My world was once gray and dull. Then they brought their riotous jointed rainbows of wonder!"
  • "When the universe contemplates beauty, it imagines the silhouette of the <bug>."
  • "Will this world meet its reckoning, beheld only by the lonely eyes of the <bug>?"
  • "I divide myself into the three sacred segments. I am the head, thorax and abdomen of the universe."
