The Ladybug is a small uncommon critter that can be found in Forests with a town during the Windy Day event (not at night). They can be caught with a Bug Net and carried in the inventory, or crafted into Ladybug Cages. They can also be used as Bait for Fishing. Touching naturally spawning Ladybugs will also increase the player's Luck, while killing them or fishing with them as bait reduces the player's Luck. The luck bonus is 0.2 for touching normal ladybugs and 0.4 for golden ones lasting for 12 minutes or until the player leaves the world.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ladybugs have a Bait Power of 17%. In Italian culture, the number 17 is considered unlucky. When viewed as the Roman numeral, XVII, it is then changed anagrammatically to VIXI, which in the Latin language translates to "I lived", the perfect implying "My life is over".
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Ladybug: "A brilliant red insect often associated with luck. Fishing with these as bait may result in unwanted karma."
