Wriggle Nightbug (リグル・ナイトバグ) is a firefly with the ability to control other insects. She likes using her ability to direct concerted performances for her own amusement, as well as to attack humans who underestimate her significance or the importance of insects in general.
Powers and Stats
Name: Wriggle Nightbug
Origin: Touhou Project
Classification: Firefly Youkai
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Flight, Danmaku, can summon and control insects, Resistance to Mind Manipulation (Youkai can resist the effects of the true Moon, which can drive humans insane and kill them if they look at it), Regeneration (Low-Godly; can regenerate from her incorporeal "mind")
Lifting Strength: Class 5 (At least comparable to that of Cirno's)
Striking Strength: Unknown

Standard Equipment: Nothing notable.
Intelligence: Wriggle is childish and naive. She has a poor memory, at least when it comes to unimportant information.
Weaknesses: Wriggle is basically harmless without her insects. Her insects have all the conventional weaknesses of normal insects, such as fire, cold, fungus, and fumigation. Wriggle herself is vulnerable to spiritual attacks.
- Ability to control insects: Wriggle possesses the ability to freely manipulate and direct insects of many varieties. The type of insect doesn't matter; she can manipulate fireflies, moths, caterpillars, crickets, hornets, and even spiders and mites, which aren't insects. Though this power seems weak, Wriggle can call upon entire swarms of stinging insects like hornets, or swarms of tiny harvest mites, so small that they can't be seen with the naked eye, but capable of biting without being detected and transmitting fatal diseases.
Because this power leads to her usually being surrounded by swarms of bugs, most humans dislike confronting her. However, Wriggle herself is almost harmless, and confronting her while she is alone (during Winter, for example) can lead to an easy victory. In addition, her insects still possess conventional weaknesses, such as fire, cold, fungus, and fumigation, so these things are very effective against her.
