Buzzy Beetles are quadrupedal yellow-skinned turtles with two beady red eyes. They wear large shiny dark blue shells with thick white rims and a beige bottom.
Buzzy Beetles will slowly walk left and right, falling off ledges and turning at walls. When jumped on by the player, they will revert into their shell for some time before reemerging. In their shell, the player can pick them up and throw them or kick them to send the Buzzy Beetle quickly spinning in one direction. While spinning, Buzzy Beetles will have the ability to destroy Brick Blocks, to collect coins and Star Coins, and to defeat other enemies. If the player jumps on the Buzzy Beetle while its spinning, it will stop and act as if it were normally jumped on. If a spinning Buzzy Beetle runs into another spinning Buzzy Beetle or a spinning Koopa Troopa, both of the enemies will become defeated.
