Variations:Heli Buton

Jet Buton[1] is an enemy appearing in Mega Man 6. Like Heli Buton, it is a flying robot based on a Japanese rhinoceros beetle, though it is lavender-coloured and possesses a pair of wings on its back instead of a propeller. Despite this, it does not primarily use them for flight, its actual means of propulsion being the jet engine attached to its rear.

In the Games

Mega Man 6

in-game sprite.

In Mega Man 6, Jet Butons appear in the final section of the Forgotten Area (Plant Man) stage. Rather than relying on camouflage like their hovering cousins, Jet Butons appear from the edge of the screen and quickly zoom across in a straight line with no warning, giving Mega Man little time to jump out of the way or destroy the enemy. They are often placed over pits or combined with other enemies, making them dangerous foes despite their simple manner of attack.

Official Data

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

An improved version of Heli Buton. It's capable of high-speed air travel. It can only fly in a straight line, so it's easy to defeat.

Related Enemies

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

  • Heli Buton (Mega Man 6) - A similar-looking beetle enemy that hides in trees and uses a helicopter to slowly float towards Mega Man.


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