The Beetle is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword that appears as an item in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. After picking it up, the player can throw the Beetle to have it fly forward. If it runs into an opponent, then it grabs them and starts to fly up toward the top blast line; they can escape, however, like with a normal grab, or if another player attacks the beetle. If they fail to escape, however, the beetle will OHKO the player it latched onto. Attacking the beetle as it is moving forward causes it to fly in the opposite direction. If a Beetle hits a wall, then it stops moving and lands on the ground, allowing players to pick it up and throw it again. Additionally, if a Beetle is attacked enough, it disappears.
