Gravity Beetle, known as Gravity Beetbood (グラビティ・ビートブード) in Japan, is a Maverick fought in Mega Man X3. He is based on a Japanese Rhinoceros beetle. He was a Maverick Hunter from the 17th unit, but after the death of his brother, Boomer Kuwanger, he wanted to avenge him and joined Dr. Doppler's forces in Mega Man X3 to fight against X.

StrategyEdit

Mega Man X3Edit

Gravity Beetle leaps about his chamber at the end of the aerial carrier and releases spheres of energy (Gravity Wells). Ray Splasher is his weakness, so shoot and evade. If he gets too close, climb the walls and either dash-jump or air dash past him. During the battle, Gravity Beetle will throw Gravity Wells at you after leaping. Sometimes, Gravity Beetle will charge at you after leaping. Climb the wall and dash-jump/air dash if he does so. If X did not obtain the armor parts or doesn't dodge properly, X will take a massive amount of damage. When his health is low, Gravity Beetle will throw a Giant Gravity Well on the top of the ceiling. You must avoid this attack. If not, X will take heavy damage. Gravity Beetle repeats the attack pattern.
