Bugs, Fish, Sea Creatures Leaving In October For Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Northern & Southern Hemisphere)

1 week ago 2 Comments

We’re officially half way through October! In this guide, we’ll tell you every bug, fish, and sea creature departing from your island after October ends in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH).

Each and every month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons brings a different set of fish, bugs, and sea creatures that can appear on your Animal Crossing island depending on the current month from the real-time clock.

That means some fish, bugs, and sea creatures currently found on your island right now will disappear becoming no longer obtainable when the month of October ends and November begins!

So if you want to catch every single creature to complete your NookPhone’s Critterpedia for getting golden tool items and donate every critter to the Museum, it’s important to know which critters are leaving and making sure you catch them before October ends.

This guide covers both the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere islands — you’ll find the Southern information below the Northern sections.

For October, we continue to see the Northern Hemisphere transition into the fall season with around ten fish and bugs leaving our islands. Not much is happening in the Southern Hemisphere though, as Spring is in full effect.

Finally, it’s worth noting that we’re far enough into the game’s lifecycle that you will see many creatures leaving that have already previously left in another month earlier this year. We write these guides inclusive of no matter when someone may have started playing or taken a break, so repeats will show up sometimes!
