In the Games

Mega Man 6

in-game sprite.

In Mega Man 6, Heli Butons appear exclusively in the Forgotten Area (Plant Man) stage, where they are the first enemy encountered. These beetles start out invisible, hiding amidst the foliage of the trees, but drop out when Mega Man comes near. Once revealed, they slowly hover towards him.

Heli Butons are paired with Batabattans in their stage, whose entry in the Mega Man Legacy Collection Database notes that the enemies work well together.

Official Data

Heli Buton appears under "Mega Man 6" in the Database in Mega Man Legacy Collection.

Although it was originally made by Dr. Light, Dr. Wily modified it. It moves quite slowly, so it's really not that dangerous an enemy.

Related Enemies

Heli Buton is one of two beetle-like enemies found within the same stage.

  • Jet Buton (Mega Man 6) - A similar-looking beetle enemy that jets forward in a straight line.

Many other enemies in the series show similar behaviour in slowly pursuing Mega Man through the air, though these are not usually hidden before they are activated.


  • Heli Buton's name, just like Jet Buton's, likely comes kabutomushi (カブトムシ or 甲虫), the Japanese name for rhinoceros beetles.
