Spelunky Wiki

Fire Bugs are enemies in Spelunky 2.

They spawn on chains in Volcana.


Two Fire Bugs on a chain together.

Fire Bugs crawl up and down the chains they spawn on. Occasionally, they open their elytra and emit jets of fire from their sides with a range of 3 tiles on each end.

The fire that is ejected from fire bugs push back any non-fragile item, such as rocks or arrows. Pots, Eggplants, and other fragile items pass right through its fire.

If the chain they were on was destroyed, the fire bug detaches and passively fly around. They do not dispense fire in this state and can only deal contact damage.
