Aphie is a minor character in A Bug's Life.
Role in the film
Aphie is the Queen's pet aphid. He is first shown being held by her. Then he barks at Dot after she pops out of the ground. The Queen is mostly shown holding him. He is shown to be terrified of Hopper and usually hides behind the Queen's crown.
Aphie resembles an aphid and is supposed to act like a small lap dog.
- During the outtakes, Aphie urinates in the Queen's lap, causing her to call for a towel while Flik and the crew laugh.
- Aphie does not talk at all in the movie, instead he makes chipping sounds and barks.
- In real life, Aphie would be treated more like livestock instead of like a dog as ants typically farm aphids for the sweet nectar that they produce. In return, the ants protect aphids from predators.
