When fighting Dr. Eggman's first robot, Beetle, collect the coins to dash him when he tries to pincer you. This fight consists of him releasing three boxes from a distance, which you can just run around, and then moving in close to pincer you. Jump, then dash in to him when this happens. Eventually a side view will appear. Beetle will begin on the right-hand side and fire three missiles. Their pattern depends on how their engines fire up so watch closely. He will then move to the middle of the screen and pincer attack once or twice. He will then move to your right again and try to pincer you. Jump, then look for the homing target and hit him.
