Bugzzy is a Mid-Boss in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Adventure, where it gives out the Backdrop ability. It later returns in Kirby Super Star, this time yielding the Suplex ability and also acting as its helper. Bugzzy also appears in both games' remakes, Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby Super Star Ultra, as well as being fought in Kirby's Avalanche.
Bugzzy also appears in Kirby Star Allies, where he can be recruited as a Friend after being defeated. Here again he represents the Suplex ability, and can perform Friend Throw.

Kirby fights Bugzzy in Cocoa Cave
Bugzzy appears as a Mid-Boss in Kirby Super Star and its Nintendo DS remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra. He is often fought in cave areas, and attacks by stomping and using suplex moves. When inhaled after being defeated, Bugzzy grants the Suplex Copy Ability. Bugzzy also appears as the Helper representing said ability.
Bugzzy is fought in Cocoa Cave during Dyna Blade, in the Garden in The Great Cave Offensive, and again in Chapter 6 of Revenge of Meta Knight. He appears on three planets during Milky Way Wishes, those being Hotbeat, Cavius, and Mekkai. Bugzzy reprises all these roles in Meta Knightmare Ultra. In The Arena, consecutive fights against Bugzzy, Bonkers, and Chef Kawasaki make up the Mid-Boss All Stars 1 battle. Bugzzy is one of the playable Helpers in Helper to Hero. He is pictured on a card in Kirby Card Swipe.
|Bugzzy's Attacks in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra

||Bugzzy jumps into the air and slowly glides towards Kirby, then lands.
||Bugzzy charges towards Kirby. If Kirby is grabbed, Bugzzy does a suplex slam, dealing damage to Kirby.

The appearance of Bugzzy is similar to that of a beetle, but it stands up, and has arms and different legs. Bugzzy somewhat resembles and acts like the Pokémon Heracross.
In battle, Bugzzy can shoot ladybugs. It can also stomp on Kirby, and toss him around. It will typically attack by either charging straight forward or jumping on Kirby from above. In Kirby Star Allies, it is also capable of lunging from the air. In games before Kirby Star Allies, Bugzzy does not drop Recoil Stars when it attacks, meaning that only its ladybugs can be used against it.
In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Bugzzy appears in episode 3, Kirby's Duel Role, as a monster ordered by King Dedede. Unlike the games, it towers over Kirby and also attacks with hand-held weapons, like a sword and notched club. Kirby defeats this version of Bugzzy by inhaling its sword to gain the Sword ability, then slicing it in two down the middle.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
||"One of Kirby's foes. Those unlucky enough to get too close will get body-slammed with Bugzzy's vicious pincers. He also releases smaller bugs. Kirby can copy the ability to body-slam by inhaling him. In Kirby's Fun Pak, this ability is called quick stamping. It's just one of many pro-wrestling moves he uses."

||"This enemy is a huge wrestling fan—he'll do his best to try out some wrestling moves on his enemies. If Kirby manages to avoid his attacks and swallow him, Kirby can bust out some wrestling moves too. Bugzzy can also release ladybugs to attack, but I think that's against wrestling rules..."
||"This enemy is really into wresting. In fact, he's just dying to give Kirby a hands-on demonstration of his suplex skills. Sometimes he releases ladybirds into battle, but...surely that sort of thing's against the rules in wrestling. If Kirby manages to inhale this hostile beastie, he'll be able to pull off some nifty wrestling moves, too!"
