Mono Beetle ( is a recurring enemy in the モノビートル Monobītoru ) ? . It is a mass-produced robot model deployed by the military organization Sonic the Hedgehog series Guardian Units of Nations, and a part of the Beetle Series. It is the most basic model in the Beetle series, and its design serves as the template for all other robots in its series.
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.
The original Mono Beetles basically resemble grey balls with blue outlines and armor on the front. On top of them, they have a sharp blue cap with a red-striped edge. Below this cap, reaching from just behind the edge of their front armor to far behind their back, they have a horizontal yellow turbine disk with a red and blue-striped frame. On their "face", they also have a single yellow, red and white lens. In
, the Mono Beetles' design was slightly tweaked, where their lenses were colored more red and white and their cap was emblazoned with GUN's symbol and the number "01".
Shadow the Hedgehog, the Mono Beetles more closely resemble Bomb Wings. In this game, they are green instead, their dish attachments are made thicker (resembling jet engines) and they have a pair of small wings on the sides.
