Taketento (タケテントウ Taketentou) is a ladybug-like robot enemy that was originally made for indoor use. They fly straight at first, but when they get close, they lose their propellers and fly toward Mega Man in an erratic pattern. In Mega Man 4 they appear in Dust Man's stage, Drill Man's stage, Pharaoh Man's stage, and in the second Wily Castle stage. They also appear in Pharaoh Man's stage in Mega Man IV and in the second episode from Super Adventure Rockman.
