Spud Bugs are enemies in Mother 3. They can be found in the upper part of Sunshine Forest in Chapter 1, before being replaced by Big Spud Bugs in Chapter 4. They often attack in groups, but are slow moving on the overworld so battles can be avoided easily. They have a small chance of dropping a Running Bomb.
Its battle sound is Battle Sound 29, a battle sound used exclusively by Spud Bugs and roaches, which falls under Code Numbers 523 for regular attack, 524 for Smaaaash! and 525 for Miss.
