Bug trained under Kirai alongside Rom Stol, Blue Jet and Rod Drill. He was considered the best of them but became more interested in how he could use his powers for selfish means. Kirai expelled him after refusing to teach Bug the Poison Fist technique, which he then learnt himself. He rounded up a gang of miscreants and lived as an outlaw, raiding various towns over Cronos. When Rom, Jet, Drill, Leina and Triple Jim arrived in Iron City the city's leaders Vilion and Missile Tank Robo misidentified Rom as Bug. Just as the misunderstanding was sorted out Bug and his gang rolled into town. Rom tried to fight his former classmate but was poisoned by one of Bug's fists. He and his gang then left town and celebrated their victory - until Diondra visited his camp and told him Rom had survived the attack, even if he was seriously ill. Bug and his men returned to Iron City backed by the Gyandlar Iron Sand, where they were met by Drill, Jet and Vilion. Rom arrived later, having recovered after meditating. Bug merged with Iron Sand in order to match Kenryū but when Rom changed up to Baikanfu he was able to defeat them. Bug was ejected from the destroyed Iron Sand and imprisoned.Defeat Bug, the User of Darkness!
