Version differences

Leftover dummy item

The dummy model used by unused items in Animal Crossing.

In Animal Crossing, the safe-return frog is still leftover in the game data as a dummy item, unobtainable without gameplay modification or glitches. It has the unused name "lucky frog" and uses the dummy model, a white triangle with red Japanese text reading ダミー (damī, dummy). Its name was also translated to other languages in the European version of Animal Crossing, with the name "rana suerte" in Spanish, "rainette fétiche" in French, "Glücksfrosch" in German, and "rana fortuna" in Italian.
