The Flying Beetle Roller is an enemy in Castlevania: Bloodlines.


Flying Beetle Rollers are mechanical, insect-like creatures encountered in the Munitions Factory. They initially enter flying on the screen, make one pass, and then drop to the ground (shedding their wings in the process); then they propel themselves forward at great speed in an attempt to run over the hero.

They boast a spinning saw blade at the bottom, which they use as a mean of locomotion on the ground. Their overall shape, including the way their frontal pincers are positioned, give them the appearance of a giant, one-eyed skull.
