The Gun Beetle (ガンビートル Ganbītoru?) is a robot deployed by the military organization Guardian Units of Nations and is a part of the Beetle series. It appears as an enemy in Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic Generations.
In all of its appearances, the Gun Beetle greatly resembles the Mono Beetle presented in the respective games, but more advanced as it has a gun attached to its underside.
The Gun Beetle attacks opponents by shooting bullets at them with its gun. It does not move around much, but instead remains hovering in one place while aiming and shooting at enemies from afar.

Apperances in other media
The Gun Beetle made an appearance in the anime Sonic X. Following Perfect Chaos' attack on Station Square, the Gun Beetles were built by GUN to combat the growing threat of Doctor Eggman, after having been given clearance to being constructed from the President. In this series, they can shoot continuous laser blasts that can cause large explosions.
When Sonic the Hedgehog 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.
- In Shadow the Hedgehog, in a number of stages (such as Circus Park), its full name is a "G.U.N. beetle drone sentry".
