A Parabuzzy is a Buzzy Beetle with wings. Like all winged enemies, they lose their wings if jumped upon. Other than that, they have the same status as regular Buzzy Beetles. They are normally found in sky areas.

History Edit

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Edit

Para-Beetles (here known as Parabuzzies) appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They can be found in the Pirate's Grotto and in the Pit of 100 Trials. Like other Buzzy Beetles, they are immune to fire attacks, and flying allows them to evade ground attacks from Mario and his party. If hit with a single jump, however, their wings will be knocked off and the Parabuzzy will become a normal Buzzy Beetle. Additionally, a fountain in Rogueport Sewers has two statues of Para-Beetles with their traditional platformer design.

Super Paper Mario Edit

In Super Paper Mario, they can be found in The Overthere and Castle Bleck. They behave the same way as in their previous appearance, but now, like other Buzzy Beetles, they are much weaker than in their previous appearances.

Tattles Edit

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door: That's a Parabuzzy. A Buzzy Beetle with wings. Max HP is 5, Attack is 3, and Defense is 4. I guess those stats are just like a Buzzy. Fire and explosions seem to have no effect, so don't bother, OK? If you flip it over, its Defense goes down to 0, so jump on it first.

Super Paper Mario: This is a Parabuzzy. It’s a Buzzy Beetle with wings… Max HP is 1, Attack is 1, and Defense is 3. Even flames won’t scorch its hard shell… If you stomp on it, you’ll remove those wings… But still, those little limbs that hang down from its shell… They’re… …a little cute.
