The Gold Butterfly is a harmless Critter. It is a rare, golden recolor of an ordinary Butterfly. It has a 0.25*1/400 (0.25%) / 0.67*1/150 (0.67%) chance of spawning in place of a regular Butterfly.

As with all other gold critters, it can be caught with a Bug Net and sold for 10.

It can be used as bait and along with the other golden bait critters has a bait power of 50%, the highest usable value among bait (along with the Master Bait), excluding the Truffle Worm.

It is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer or its upgrades.
