Mega Beetles are rare enemies found only within Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are immensely larger versions of the Buzzy Beetle.


Mega Beetles appear identically to Buzzy Beetles aside from their size. They 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.


Mega Beetles will slowly walk left and right, turning at walls. They are mainly used as platforms for the player to cross across dangerous things below, as jumping on the Mega Beetle has no effect on it.

Mega Beetles cannot be defeated by any projectile shot by the player.
