** In fact, the Animorphs find it so bad, Jake vetoed any plan that relied on the team morphing a social insect. Their next attempt (bees), was only allowed because they promised the bee they would morph would be from the same hive that was in the mission area.

Not to be confused with BugWar, where regular-sized humans are at war with BigCreepyCrawlies.

Expect lots of ZergRush, as in real life. Not to be confused with BugWar, where regular-sized humans are at war with BigCreepyCrawlies.



* Yes, ants really do have wars. But no tactics and strategy!

* In a very old example of an UnbuiltTrope, Myth/GreekMythology, the soldiers Achilles commands in the ''Literature/TheIliad'' are called the Myrmidons, or, in Greek, "ant-people." This name came from their origin as ants turned into warriors by Zeus in answer to a king's prayer to repopulate his country after a plague. The word "myrmidon" has come to denote any mindless group of subordinates, and is essentially the source of the allegory on which this trope is based.

* The DuelingMovies ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' both had such wars -- in the former, between ants and termites, in the latter, between ants and marching locusts (who were somewhat inexactly called 'grasshoppers').
