Purple bugs have the appearance of a moth, with four dragonfly-like wings and a moth-like mouth.
Purple bugs appear in most levels of Bomba, and have the ability to fly. They fly in an irregular pattern, unlike other enemies who have a set path of movement.
Purple bugs are hard to kill due to their constant movement, but are very weak and can be killed on contact with a single bombs. Purple bugs kill the player on contact, like all enemies do in Bomba.
