Jimmy T, WarioWare: Touched!

Scratchy the 'Fro Bug is an orange, beetle-like insect that appears in the game WarioWare: Touched!. He appears in Jimmy T's stage. During the stage's intro, Jimmy is seen dancing with his family when Scratchy flies past. He flies into Jimmy's wig, causing him extreme discomfort. The player now has to play a short game where they have to rub Scratchy to get him to fly out of Jimmy's afro. This minigame is used as a tutorial for the rubbing-style gameplay. In the ending for Jimmy's stage, Jimmy's Folks walk home when Scratchy returns and flies back into Jimmy's wig. Jimmy feels discomfort again and starts to jump wildly in pain. However, his family just thinks he is dancing and laugh as they walk home.
