128 - Bugby

Bugby, A.K.A. Experiment 128, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba and a character in the Lilo & Stitch franchise. He is designed to turn people into harmless insects. Those turned into bugs can understand all other insects and arachnids; only Jumba's technology can reverse the process. His one true place is on a farm protecting farmers' crops by turning rocks into aphid-eating ladybugs.

He was activated by sprinklers. He turns Lilo into a ladybug, Stitch into an ant, Jumba into a stink bug, and Pleakley into a praying mantis. 128 was later reprogrammed by Jumba to only turn inanimate objects into insects.


Bugby is a small green, mosquito-like experiment with four purple eyes, four wings and six teal legs.

Special Abilities

Bugby can fire a purple ray from his stinger that causes people hit to turn into bugs and giant insects hit to revert to the normal size of bugs. Anyone turned into a bug can communicate with all other insects and arachnids. When Bugby was reprogrammed, his ray caused rocks hit to turn into swarms of aphid-eating ladybugs.


The only way to reverse Bugby's effects is with a machine built by Jumba.
