Few slugs have the flight power of the Hoverbug! This flying slug can carry enemies away in a dizzying corkscrew flight path, and it can also airlift you out of trouble!
- A famous Hoverbug is Bugsy, who belongs to Eli Shane.
- A famous Hoverbug is Flutter, who belongs to Trini.
The ghouled version of Hoverbug is called Hoverblade.
- Protoform Abilities - Extremely fast flyer, can carry messages.
- Screwball - Grabs an opponent and carries them off in a dizzying corkscrew flight path.
- Heatstreaker - Visual targeting and heat sensing, can find any opponent or his Slug over long distances.
- Speedling - Flies in fast, dizzying circles around an opponent, slashing at them with its wings.
- Outtathere - Picks up a Slugslinger and whisks them out of danger.
alhough thy lack defensive capabilities, hoverbugs are extremely useful: thanks to their screwball attack, a well placed hoverbug could end a duel or make an opponent an extremely vulnerable target to slugs like rammstones and frostcrawlers and their heatseker and speedling attacks can be useful. outtahere is a purely supportive move, that can save its slinger or its slinger's friends. his weaknesses are that it can only target a few people and it lacks destructive capabilities
