The man-faced stink bug is a bug in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Like the regular stinkbug, it can be found on flowers; unlike the stinkbug, however, the man-faced stink bug only spawns at night. It can be caught from spring to mid fall.

Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

"Never mind this stink bug's smell. What you have here is a bug...with a FACE...on its BACK!! Wot-wot! Simply put, the man-faced stink bug have markings on its shell that resemble a human face. Once you notice this face, you cannot UN-notice it. Indeed, this face might haunt you forever. At least the face will distract you from the stink."

Once donated to the museum, the man-faced stink bug can be found on the tropical flower bed with palm trees, near the tiger beetle and honeybee.
