Bug Family (Japanese Kanji: 虫 Hiragana: むしRomanji: Mushi Insects) refers to monsters in Dragon Quest game series that take on forms of insects, arachnids or gastropods.

Strength and Weakness


The snail type of bug can roll into their shell and use the Pincushion ability. This halves the damage taken and reflects one quarter of that damage back at the attacker. In addition, many bugs can inflict status effects like poison or sleep.


Knives deal 110% damage to bugs, and the knife move Fly Swat deals even heavier damage.
