Bugby can fire a purple ray from his stinger that causes any people hit to turn into bugs, and any giant insects hit to revert to the normal size of bugs. Anyone turned into an insect can understand all other insects and arachnids. After Bugby was reprogrammed, his ray caused rocks hit to turn into swarms of aphid-eating ladybugs.
The only way to reverse the effect is with a machine built by Jumba.
- After some reprograming, his one true place is helping farmers by turning rocks into aphid-eating ladybugs.
