The Mono Beetle (モノビートル) is a mass-produced G.U.N. robot that is part of the Beetle series. It's the most basic of the series, and is used as a base from where all the other models are designed and modified from.

It has no attacks and stands still only to excitedly move up and down slightly when it spots a character, serving little more than surveillance drones for the military. Their purpose in gameplay is often to serve as Homing Attack stepping stones, much like the Spinners.
