Beetley is a round creature with two small feet and a beetle-like crest who can be found as a minor enemy in Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby Star Allies. It grants the Beetle ability when swallowed by Kirby.
In many ways, Beetley looks similar to Bronto Burt, but it bears a different color scheme, has more indented eyes, and a beetle's crest on its head. Despite having wings, Beetley does not fly, instead choosing to pace along the ground and try to impale any intruders it sights. Beetley, despite its carapace, is not the toughest enemy in the world.
