When either donating to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):
"Never mind this stink bug's smell. What you have here is a bug...with a FACE...on its BACK!! Wot-wot! Simply put, the man-faced stink bug has markings on its shell that resemble a human face. Once you notice this face, you cannot UN-notice it. Indeed, this face might haunt you forever. At least the face will distract you from the stink."
- "I caught a man-faced stink bug! Reminds me of my uncle!" —New Horizons
