The Beetle is an enemy encountered in the Egyptian-themed levels in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. The beetle closely resembles a scarab, a special type of beetle that was molded into artifacts in ancient Egypt. The body contains a greenish color and is found in certain Egyptian levels like Tomb Wader. The beetles main form of attacking is crawling back and forth across Crash's path, acting as an obstacle that Crash must avoid. They can be easily defeated by simply jumping on them, or spinning them away. In the water Egyptian levels like Tomb Wader though, the beetles appear in the water drainage areas. They will crawl on the ground when the water level is low, but will fly into the air when the water level rises. While they are in midair, Crash must try to avoid them while jumping. He can still defeat them though by spinning them away or jumping on them.
Beetles reappear in Crash Twinsanity in the levels Boiler Room Doom and Cortex's section of Classroom Chaos. In Boiler Room Doom they spit acid at Crash and Cortex and can only be defeated with Twin Slam. Then a different species pursues Cortex in Classroom Chaos in a chase.
Beetles also appear In Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced in the Egyptian levels.
In Twinsanity beetles are orange/red and purple while the ones in Warped and N-Tranced are green.
