Gravity Beetle, known as Gravity Beetbood (グラビティ・ビートブード) in Japan, is a boss in Mega Man X3 loosely based on a Japanese Rhinoceros beetle, Japanese horned beetle (Allomyrina beetle), also known as Kabutomushi in Japan. He was a Maverick Hunter from the 17th unit, but after the death of his brother, Boomer Kuwanger, he wanted to avenge him and became a Maverick in Mega Man X3. He leaps about in his chamber at the end of the aerial carrier and sends out spheres. Ray Splasher is his weakness, so shoot and evade. If he gets too close to X, use the walls to climb and evade.
