Para-Beetles are enemies in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are a red flying sub-species of Buzzy Beetles with red heads and tail. They only appear in World 7-6. Mario must jump on them and their sub-species, the Heavy Para-Beetle, to complete World 7-6, however, he must avoid touching their heads or behinds; coming in contact with their heads or behinds makes Mario lose a form or die if at small form. If Mario jumps on 8 Para-Beetles without stopping or touching the ground, a 1-Up Mushroom will fall from the sky. Mario can collect it for a 1-Up.
