Spud Bugs are enemies in Mother 3. They are found in the Sunshine valley / Mt. Oriander cliffs (south) in Chapter 1, before being replaced by big spud bugs in Chapter 4. They like to attack in packs, but aren't that fast, so battles can be avoided relatively easily, and luckily have low defense. They have a small chance of dropping a Running bomb, a useful item against stronger enemies.
