    It's always going to be ants, because protagonists are meant to be who the audience empathises with and our society of over-socialized consumers identify with creatures who like in huge colonies and are completely disposable and interchangeable. Typically, it will be a dysfunctional ant with a 'quirky' personality, who doesn't quite fit in with the others.

    It has to be either beetles or mantises.
    Beetles are not only the most numerous type of insect, but the most numerous type of animal in general.
    However mantises are the most human-looking, which gives them heavy protagonist vibes.

    Queen Bees are the "protags" of RTS games.

      Queen bees are slaves to the hive. They're walking ovaries and exist only to lay eggs.
      Once their ovaries give in, the workers kill and replace them.

    Spider would be the cynical secondary female character that is antagonistic towards the beginning but later helps him out, and at the end sacrifices herself for MC's happiness.

      Except you've got a few individualistic members who constantly have to fight off or run from the raging collectivists who are after them.

        Wait, that actually happens or are you joking? I didn't know about individualism in Bees and Ants.

          It does happen. Every now and then an ant will just refuse to do its job and frick around instead

      Dipterans are the humblest but most important insects.
      They absorb all the world's rot and serve as food for countless animal species.
