Mono Beetle ( is a robot deployed by the military organization モノビートル Monobītoru ) ? Guardian Units of Nations. It is the most basic model in the Beetle series and its design serve as the template for all the other robots in the Beetle series. It appears as an enemy in , Sonic Adventure 2 , Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and Shadow the Hedgehog .
As the Mono Beetles serve as little more than surveillance drones, presumably to support the security functions of G.U.N's bases, they are rather harmless and can occasionally be used as "steps" for
Sonic and Shadow to cross by using Homing Attack.
Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and Sonic Generations, the Mono Beetles basic structure resembles grey-colored balls with a blue outline. On the top of the Mono Beetles, they have a blue cap with a red stripe, with G.U.N.'s symbol and the number "05" on it. Also, right below their cap, from the front edge of their main body to behind their back, the Mono Beetles have circular dishes, with red and blue stripes on the side, attached. The Mono Beetles are also equipped with security cameras, which resemble yellow lenses, in the front.
Shadow the Hedgehog, the Mono Beetles are given a slightly different design which make them closely resemble Bomb Wings. In this game, rather of their usually blue colors, the Mono Beetles are given a green color instead. Also, their dish attachments are made thicker, resembling jet engines and have a pair of small wings attached to the sides.
The Mono Beetle has no method of attack, unlike most other robots in the Beetle series, and will only hover around in the air. When a Mono Beetle espies the player, its "eye" will light up and it will bob up and down excitedly. Sometimes, a Gun Beetle can be invisible to the player can and appear out of nowhere when a character comes near it.
