Bugs and insects are deadly creatures that can impede your progress in many games. In Army Men: Sarge's Heroes, Sarge Hawk encounters many insects on his missions. In Army Men: RTS- Real Time Strategy, they are a lot of times unfriendly, but if you save the queen ant, you can get them on your side.

In Army Men II there are random cockroaches on many of the missions that can be difficult to kill if you do not have powerful weapons at your disposal.
