Para-Beetles are rare enemies which appear in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii and Another Super Mario Bros. Wii.


Para-Beetles are flying variants of Buzzy Beetles with red shells and small wings. They are larger than Buzzy Beetles and have no legs.


Para-Beetles either fly through the sky or stand still and face the screen. If Mario jumps on a regular Para-Beetle, it will start to fly upwards. Heavy Para-Beetles will start to fall slowly instead.
