Character description

Buzzy Beetles are quadruped Koopas that have powerful outer shells. They tend to appear in darker, interior locations, such as underground and in caves and ruins. Despite their name, Buzzy Beetles resemble Koopa Troopas more than beetles. Like Koopa Troopas, Buzzy Beetles will hide inside their shells when jumped on, and their shells function almost identically to Koopa Troopa shells. However, unlike Koopa Troopas, their shells are also strong enough to resist fireballs. Additionally, they are capable of climbing and walking on ceilings, and to attack players underneath, they can drop and spin along the ground in their shells.

In Super Smash Flash 2

In Super Smash Flash 2, a Buzzy Beetle appears as a background character on Mushroom Kingdom. It repeatedly jumps on a red springboard, and it flips around in the air with every fourth jump.
