Battle Beetles simply walk forward until they reach a ledge. When they do, they fly straight up, then slowly hover down at an angle towards Mario. A Battle Beetle can be defeated with a jump on the head or with a fireball. Battle Beetles look much like Hercules beetles, but are roughly Mario's size.
A Battle Beetle also appears in volume 7 of Super Mario-kun, where Mario gets robbed by it and, while engaging a battle with it, the Battle Beetle hits a branch from which a Heavy Zed falls, squashing and defeating it. In volume 9, another Battle Beetle appears and is defeated by Bunny Mario.
