Zydrate comes in a... by Bilious Zydrate comes in a... by Bilious
... little glass vial.

A LITTLE GLASS VIAL?

Or sometimes this bug's ass, or so it would seem. I don't think they ever explain wtf is up with the little glowing bugs in the beginning of Repo, but I like to imagine that they suck the zydrate from corpses to use as a self defense mechanism from their glow-worm-scorpion-like tail to paralyze it's enemies.

Doodled with minimal references so most of it is my own invention for my DA Journal layout. Here's a big version for your amusement!

The thought crossed my mind that the bugs were related to zydrate when I first watched Repo! but I forgot all about even questioning why they didn't mention it later in the movie if they really were related...

Awesome idea of why they glow! Cute bug too =3

There was some interview or something with Terrance (or maybe it was on the commentary) where he said that the bugs were just just mosquitoes that adapted to drink Z instead of blood.

Same logic I had for it. Makes you wonder why no one just harvests and or breeds the bugs that apparently eat the zydrate for concentrated doses...
Love the pic, the glow effect is really nice on it.

My theory is that the bug's digestion system adds something to the zydrate in it's tail that makes it either poisonous or at least dangerous in some way. So for a super desperate junky it MIGHT NOT BE A GREAT IDEA.

Good point. It would explain why they risk arrest instead of just harvesting bug butts.

That is a really cool concept, and he's cute! (In that creepy bug way, haha.) Someone should ask Terrence at a panel what's up with the bug, besides that he loves cockroaches.

If not, I vote my speculation as fan-canon. u_u draining the bug's venom could be a super super cheap possibly-lethal street Z. >:C To be avoided at all cost. Because Butt Juice is for Butt Heads. TM
