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 he Suplex ability, and can perform Friend Throw.

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. In the anime, it attacks with a sword and a club instead of throwing Kirby.

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Bugzzy appears in episode 3, Kirby's Duel Role, as a Demon Beast ordered by King Dedede. Unlike the games, it towers over Kirby and also attacks with hand-held weapons, as stated above.

Trophy Descriptions from the Super Smash Bros. series

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."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

"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..." - North American version

"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!" - European version
