The Jellyfish (クラゲ, Kurage) is a saltwater fish in the Animal Crossing series introduced in Animal Crossing. It is unique in that it has the shortest range of any fish at only two weeks (August 16th through August 31st), and that it has the lowest selling price of any fish at 100 Bells.

While not catchable in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Jellyfish appear in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as obstacles while swimming that stun the player if swam in to.

A similar species, the Moon Jellyfish, appears in Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a sea creature introduced in the 1.3.0 Free Summer Update.

Donating to the museum[edit]

As with all fish, bugs, and sea creatures in the Animal Crossing series, the Jellyfish can be donated to the Museum by talking to Blathers. He will tell the player the following upon donation:

In Animal Crossing[edit]

"Jellyfish and other gelatinous creatures are some of the ocean's most beautiful animal life. Some of them do pack a painful sting, but you'll be fine if you observe them from a respectful distance. Now than, let's get this one squared away in it's new home, eh wot?"

In Wild World[edit]

"You can actually find these in restaurants, though which ones I do not know. Jellyfish can grow to be almost three feet long, did you know that?! That crunchy texture... It takes rather an open mind to enjoy, eh wot?"

In City Folk[edit]

"...Hoo, are you aware that the jellyfish is completely without bones? There's a legend that says the jellyfish had bones long ago, but they were taken away by a sea deity. ...Yes, the reason was that the jellyfish was quite the gossip and was eventually punished for it... Getting boneless... Rather a stiff punishment, eh wot?"

The Jellyfish appears in the museum's right circular tank. It just hovers in the same place, occasionally jumping forward a bit.

Real-world information[edit]

The flower hat jelly: Olindas formosus.

The flower hat jelly is a rare species of hydrozoa found in waters off Brazil, Argentina, and southern Japan. Despite the name, it is not a species of jellyfish, for it belongs to the class Hydrozoa instead of Scyphozoa. The flower hat jelly can grow to be about 15 cm (6 inches) in diameter. Its sting is non-lethal but painful. Its diet consists mostly of small fish.

Jellyfish have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and have no brains, causing them to be largely researched by scientists.
