Bugs, sometimes called worms or caterpillars due to their appearance, are rare enemies in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Super Star. They cannot be inhaled.

Physical Appearance

Bugs look like brown worms or striped caterpillars with a couple of large eyes. The ones dropped by Whispy's Revenge appear about twice the size of normal bugs, and are purple instead. Some sprites portray bugs as fuzzy.

Snack Tracks

Bugs first appear in Revenge of Meta Knight when fighting against Twin Woods. When the Twin Woods start spinning, they drop bugs from their branches.

They appear later in Milky Way Wishes, again in the fight with Twin Woods. Bugs also appear in The Arena.

Bugs appear again in a new sub-game, Revenge of the King. They are used in the fight against Whispy's Revenge. This time, however, they appear purple and much larger.

Bugs also appear in the Snack Tracks sub-game. They appear on the conveyor belt along with food, bombs, and rocks. They can appear by themselves or stuck inside of a Maxim Tomato, making them a rather annoying obstacle. These bugs must be tapped once to be destroyed.

A bug also appears in the Special-Edition Blooper Reel video; in the cutscene from Dyna Blade, instead of an apple falling on Kirby's head, a bug falls on his face, prompting Kirby to start gasping for air before seemingly losing consciousness.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Bugs appear again in Kirby: Planet Robobot's Team Kirby Clash sub-game (as well as the downloadable Team Kirby Clash Deluxe). They once again appear as one of Whispy Woods' attacks. Bug is one of the three enemies in the entirety of Team Kirby Clash Deluxe.
