When I told myself I'd be shading/highlighting these monsters, I might have been condemning my hands to a slow and painful death. Though, if it adds as much OOMPH to the other monsters as much as Rodestang here it, might be well worth it.
I imagine when/if I make my dream kart racing game, I'd like these guys to be in one of the levels, and they race against the players as an obstacle.Battle Theme

Over 300 years, these beetles evolved to imitate the old world's vehicles, even down to the inner workings. The food they eat turns into fuel and is burned to produce tons of energy. Their toes can fold into their feet and their knee joints can rotate as an axle, allowing their feet to spin as wheels and carry them at speeds up to 90 miles (144 kilometers) per hour. By expelling flames from their abdomen, they can excel up to 200 miles (321 kilometers) per hour at the cost of more fuel.Fun Facts
