A Dotty[1] is an enemy in the Game Boy version of Donkey Kong. Dotties appear in the Forest, and they are first encountered in Stage 2-1. Dotties behave similarly to Rappies, walking in circles around the environment, up walls and on the ceiling. In Stage 2-6, Dotties walk considerably faster than usual, making them harder to avoid. They do not hurt Mario, though they can push him around and are invincible. They can also be stood on, but not picked up.

Let's use it as a vehicle.

This character takes the form of a giant ladybug. It cannot be lifted, but it does not cause damage when it comes in contact with you. It can also climb vertical walls, so use it as a vehicle by climbing on top.
