The Samurai Bug is coloured matte black, with each of its legs having tips that have a pink-gold gradient, and two layers of slightly differently coloured brown. Most notably, the Samurai Bug wears a gold Japanese samurai helmet on its head, with two 'antlers' that have two points each, and a large octagon in the centre. The front of the helmet has white stripes and a white top, surrounded by a gold edge. The sides of the helmet protrude slightly, and have bronze coloured decals on the side reflecting serrated copper. Its clothing consists of a terracotta coloured suit that has lighter coloured squares making up the patterning, with two gold belts running horizontally across its body. By its left side is a katana in a black sheath.

Baby Samurai Bug Edit
- The Samurai Bug is a play on the kabutomushi, or Japanese rhinoceros beetle. Kabuto means 'samurai helmet', and "mushi" is 'insect'. Its appearance in particular plays literally on this.
- The description references the way of the warriors, known as Bushidō in Japanese, similar to chivalry in knighthood. This is played on, with the description simultaneously mentioning how many beetles live in bushes.
- The Samurai Bug was released in version 1.16.0 on the 8th of May 2018 on Android and on the 10th of May 2018 on iOS, along with all other beetles, centipedes and butterflies.
- On iOS, all beetles, centipedes and butterflies were bugged, not appearing in the stampede up until version 1.16.1 on the 14th of May 2018.
