Animbassador: King Roario The King of Animals is a firm believer in the class system. Potential homes must be of sufficient worth and contain Doenut and Zumbug subjects (i.e. meals). As the ultimate big Spider, it also has some Mouse issues.

Other Information

Meeting the value requirement is surprisingly easy. 5 Doenuts and 5 Zumbugs make a total of 28,500! Also, a Captain's Cutlass adds 10,000 to the garden value and keeps Professor Pester and the Ruffians out. Additionally, I recommend using valuable fences to keep 5 Doenuts and 5 Zumbugs in. A Mine is also very valuable and gives you lots of money(hopefully).

Also, when trying to get one, it helps to whack one of the Doenuts or Zumbugs, take its life candy, and try to get the Roario to eat it. It helps to place it near the candy of a pinata the roario kills itself.

Commonly asked questions
Any Roario resident tips? Got a Roario visitor that drops by for a quick bite, then wanders off again? Since you're not guaranteed to get the same visitor next time, getting a wild Roario to eat enough Doenuts and Zumbugs may take a bit of time. If you're open to a bit of pinata-bashing, you can whack some and make the Roario eat its candy.
  • First, never let your Doenut or Zumbug count drop below 5, or the Roario won't find your garden attractive anymore, and wander away, drawing the whole process out. So, start your garden off with at least 5 of each.

Next, when a Roario visitor shows up, wait for it to break open one of the pinatas. Now, quickly break open another of the 3 it needs to eat, and drop its (differently-colored) piece of Life Essence candy in amongst the other candies from the first one. Quickly repeat for the other two that it needs to eat. If you're successful, your visitor will have gobbled up everything it needs to meet the Resident requirements, and move in during its 22nd visit. View thread
