Macho Bug is an enemy that appears in the Forest.
Macho Bug resembles a boxer, but with a buggy aesthetic. He's colored in red and blue, with pure white eyes.
Energetic and somewhat violent, Macho Bug's dialogue revolves first around fighting the protagonists, but changes to being more content once he's re-arranged.
- Groups of four bugs appear from the right and drift across the screen.
