The Attached Microbes (密着微生物 Micchaku Biseibutsu?), also known as the Martian Microbes (火星微生物 Kasei Biseibutsu?), are supposedly a lifeform native to the planet Mars in the Toaru Majutsu no Index universe, an intelligent species speaking Japanese. They are actually artificial microbes, developed in the scientific project called Mars World experiment.

After receiving signals from the Martian Microbes in her laboratory, Bisai Otome wished to take them back to Earth and shelter them. She tried to artificially create similiar microbes by reproducing the same environment as Mars on Earth and thus make regular microbes evolve. This was so she could investigate the microbes beforehand. This experiment was conducted in a small dome named Mars World (マーズワールド Māzuwārudo?). She managed to create microbes fertile enough to survive in the Martian environment, yet they gained no calculation ability like that of the Martian ones.
