This article is about an older version of DF.
A small bat-like creature with the head of an insect. It is found deep underground.

This creature typically spawns in swarms.

To give an idea of a single bugbat's strength, a novice swordsdwarf armed with a steel short sword and no armor can win against a single bugbat, sustaining only minor injuries. Another equal dwarf, when confronted with an average swarm of 10 bugbats died by bleeding to death in 3 seconds. Swarms vary from 5 to 15.
