The Buzzy Beetle is a member of the Koopa Troopa clan. The Buzzy Beetle is apart of the Beetle family. Buzzy Beetles have hard shells which protect them from most attacks. When they are stomped, they can be kicked, picked up, or thrown. Any enemy a Buzzy Beetle passes while it has been tossed or kicked is defeated. Some Buzzy Beetles hang on ceilings and then try to fall on Mario when he gets close.
