The Gun Beetle made an appearance in the anime Sonic X. Following Perfect Chaos' attack on Station Square, the Gun Beetles were built by G.U.N. to combat the growing threat of Doctor Eggman, after having been given clearance to being constructed from the President. In this media, they can shoot continuous laser blast that can cause large explosions.

Following Sonic the Hedgehog, who had been framed by Shadow the Hedgehog for the theft of a Chaos Emerald, a swarm of Gun Beetles were sent to locate and stop Sonic. Once they found him, however, the robots proved no match for the blue hedgehog.

Trivia

  • In Shadow the Hedgehog, in a number of stages (such as Circus Park), its full name is a "G.U.N. beetle drone sentry".
