Player description and analysisEdit
Ant is reliable, protective and suitably heroic, and much like you'd expect him... but in partially unexpected ways. A ranged fighter and prime base defender, he is given additional purpose and flair through one mobility skill, elements of hero support, and good crowd control. While not normally heavy on the DPS side, with his passive damage increase of marked enemies, buff to both his own attacks and turrets, and a quite large armor debuff, he can come out bursting and probably do more hurt than most heroes in the game when close to home.
And he can also stun quite well, teleport about the map, send enemies flying and construct armor for his pals. His primary purpose is quite obvious, but his secondary multi-purpose abilities makes his surprisingly dynamic, and a good backup even for frontline battles. Balanced, is a word I'd use over all other, and isn't that precisely the kind of hero the world of Bug Heroes need (if not always the one we want)?

- "Who, me?"
- "I've got a funny feeling about this...."
- "Are you sure this is a good idea?"
"You won't bother me anymore!"
"You'll do all the fighting though....right?"
- Three of Ant's sayings, "You'll do all the fighting, though....right?", "Who, me?", and "Are you sure this is a good idea?", suggest that Ant is a little bit of a coward when it comes to combat. He also shares this personality in the original Bug Heroes game and in Bug Heroes Quest.
- Ant's saying, "I've got a funny feeling about this", is a reference to Star Wars, where that phrase is said in almost every movie before something bad happens. In Star Wars the phrase is "I've got a bad feeling about this".
