The Spring Beetle[1] (スプリングビートル Supuringubītoru?) is an enemy that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a robot deployed by the Guardian Units of Nations, and is a part of the Beetle series.


The Spring Beetle greatly resembles a Mono Beetle, except for a few key differences. Instead of having a dish attached to its back and a cap on its top, it has a spring built into its head. Also, on the bottom of it, it has two jets that allow it to move


A Spring Beetle in Crazy Gadget.

As its name would suggest, the Spring beetles is equipped with a spring that can be used by the player to reach higher places, just like a normal spring. Spring Beetles do not have any form of attack and can instead be found either hovering in a single place or moving a set distance vertically. Because of the spring attached to it and its position in stages, all normal attacks that the player uses at the Spring Beetle will bounce off it. The only way to defeat it is to use the Light Speed Attack. Upon its destruction, it awards the player 100 points.

The Spark Beetle can be found in the following stages:

Character Stage
Normal mode Hard mode
Sonic City Escape
Crazy Gadget
City Escape
Metal Harbor
Shadow Sky Rail
