The Rhino Bug as seen in the 2005 video game Starship Troopers.

The Rhino Bug is a type of the Arachnid.

Roughnecks: Starship TroopersEdit

The Rhino Bug is a much larger aquatic Bug species that could live within the alkaline lakes of Klendathu; an environment that no one expected life to live in. They possessed four 'tusks'. They were similar swimmers to the Water Tigers.

Starship Troopers (2005 video game)Edit

"Rhino Bugs aren't the smartest bugs in the galaxy, but you surely wouldn't want to meet one head-on."
Commander Harris

The Rhino Warrior is a fast, clumsy Arachnid that attacks by charging and trampling or gouging their enemy with a large horned tusk. They are virtually invulnerable in the front but can easily be killed by shooting in the brightly colored tissue in the rear.

Rhino Bugs were deployed on Hesperus where they can be seen trampling many Mobile Infantry troopers to death. In each mission on Hesperus, two Rhino Bugs were encountered. All bugs were killed as the Federation left the Brain Bug as the only Arachnid survivor of the battle.
