Wisp (ゆうたろう, Yutarou) is a sprit/genie that appears in Animal Crossing games in the morning (usually between 10 PM to 4 AM). He was absent in Animal Forest and Wild World. He resembles Boo, an enemy featured in many Mario titles.

How do I find him in Animal Crossing?[]

Wisp will be in your village on any random night from 8:00pm until 4:00am. He is a just a sprit in this game. He will appear in a random acre in your village. Once you find him, he will say that he knows you are in a hurry, but he needs some urgent help. He wants you to capture five spirits with your net. They are scattered all over your village, and this task might take a lot of time because of how big your village is. The best technique to use is to start from the very top of your village and scan it, searching every area possible for where a spirit might be. Spirits are light pink and have a swirl inside of them. They will be floating. After you find all five of them, head back to Wisp and he will give you one out of three wishes.

How do I find him in Animal Crossing: City Folk?[]

Wisp in a player's attic

Wisp could be easy to find ... there's only one problem - he is invisible. In this game he's a genie. He will appear in your village on a random day; any day of the week. The only time that you may find him is when it is late at night. However, there is a surefire way of knowing that he is in your village that day. If you see a genie lamp laying on the ground near a tree or a building, that guarantees that Wisp is in your village tonight. If you find Wisp before the lamp, then you must find the lamp after you talk to Wisp. If you find the lamp first, search around for Wisp - he is usually found near the beach but could be anywhere. Eventually a text box will pop up and Wisp will say "Psst ... come here." You will then have to play a game where he moves and you have to find him. After you catch up to Wisp yet again, he will say that he is scared and asks you to meet him in your attic. Proceed to your attic and rub your lamp. Wisp will appear and offer to grant you one of three wishes.

Things to consider[]

If you do not find Wisp that night, then the lamp is rendered useless. As soon as you turn the empty lamp into a magic lamp then you can keep it and use it whenever you want.


  1. Weeds - he will pick all of the weeds from your village.
  1. Smash Roaches - Wisp will get rid of all of the cockroaches that are living in your house.
  1. Give Me Stuff - Hat, Accessory, or Furniture - once you choose, he will give you a random item.
