Beetron (ビートロン Bītoron) is a giant beetle-based Mechaniloid enemy that appears in Flame Stag's stage in Mega Man X2 and Mega Man Xtreme.  It is composed of a platform that X can safely step on, damaging wings, and a long snout cutter. Through this specific enemy, X is able to access certain parts of the stage that he himself can't reach.

If Mega Man X is in the same Y axis as a Beetron, it start spinning its cutter and dash forward to try and ram him.  If it rams into certain fragile sections of the rocky cliff, it will explode, opening up new passageways. In addition, while X stands on its platform, it will raise him very high so he can access new areas.

Beetron is weak to Magnet Mine, Spin Wheel, and Silk Shot. However, it is not recommended to recklessly destroy them since they are useful for reaching secret locations. In fact, X needs to use them to get the Sub Tank, a 1-Up, and even the secret X-Hunter door.
