Beetank, known as Kabutank (カブタンク Kabutanku) in Japan and Bugtank in Mega Man Battle Network 5, is a beetle-like virus from the Mega Man Battle Network series. When a Beetank fires its payload of bombs, its muzzle brakes flare similar to artillery (presumably operating with the same purpose to resist recoil) and the bombs themselves spread varying damage across the cyberfield depending on the variant's ability. Apart from varying degrees of explosion strength and pattern, some rarer Beetank variants can cause status ailments if hit by the detonation of a bomb. Beetank move vertically up and down the row they occupy, stopping only to fire or if a panel adjacent to them has been destroyed.
