The Swarmp Bug is an enemy appearing in Chrono Cross. Taking on the form of blue-colored bugs, they propel themselves around the shores of the Hydra Marshes in both worlds with a star-shaped set of wings affixed to their heads. These very wings are laced with a dirty-orange hue.

Battle and Strategy[edit | edit source]

Swarmp Bugs usually appear in twos or threes, and are sometimes known to accompany Potpourris, SnobGoblins, SnibGoblins and Quadffids into battles. They attack by wheeling in the air before slamming their bodies into selected targets for mediocre amounts of damage. They are known to use certain elements such as Numble in battle, but even then, they do so rather infrequently. On the whole, Swarmp Bugs pose very little challenge, and should be taken out fairly easily in battle.

Name Origin[edit | edit source]

The name of this enemy, Swarmp Bug, appears to be a deliberate mis-spelling of the phrase, Swamp Bug. As the Swarmp Bug can be found in a swampy location of the game, its name is hence a befitting one.

The Japanese name of this enemy, Seven Star, could be a play on the fact that the Swarmp Bug's wings appear to take on the shape of a star.
