Buzzy Beetle Towers are a variant of Buzzy Beetles that appear in Super Mario Maker, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Mario Maker 2. They can be produced if the player stacks Buzzy Beetles on top of one another.

One also appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash, where it is fought in the Emerald Circus. The stack consists of a Big Buzzy Beetle, a normal Buzzy Beetle, a Small Buzzy Beetle, and a green Spike Guy. To attack, the Buzzy Beetles spin as the Spike Guy runs on top, then the Big Buzzy Beetle launches itself into Mario. If the Spike Guy is defeated, another one drops from a trapeze to replace it at the start of the next turn. If a Hammer attack is used, the Buzzy Beetles take damage, and the Spike Guy falls off, landing on Mario headfirst as an attack. It then climbs back up the tower. If a KO Hammer is used, the tower spins in place, and the Spike Guy strikes a pose as the audience cheers. The Buzzy Beetles are immune to Jump attacks while stacked. The Buzzy Beetle Tower is vulnerable to Ice Flowers, Eekhammers, Hurlhammers, and Things. The POW Block causes the tower to collapse, flipping the Buzzy Beetles on their backs as the Spike Guy runs away and does not reappear. From this point, they behave individually as regular enemies.
