The "Gyroscopic Jerk" Hoverbizzle is an enemy in Double Dragon Neon. It is a flying robot with a spherical body and three bladed limbs. It attacks by spinning its limbs and charging at the player.

The red ones self-destruct when either near the player or critically damaged, producing a harmful explosion.

Description[]

Hoverbizzles appear in Missions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10. They are small flying robots that have a spherical body and three bladed limbs. They hover around the battlefield and have notoriously better mobility than ground enemies. They generally come in pairs and/or fourths, with often two of each variant at once. They attack by first approaching the player, and then they will start spinning their limbs in quick motion and charge at them.

There are two variants: white and red. The red ones will attempt to get in the player's vicinity, at which point they will retract their limbs, drop to the ground and commence a timed self-destruct mechanism, resulting in an explosion that will harm both players and enemies alike.

It is the only enemy in the game that can be grabbed and thrown without having to be stunned first, making them excellent impromptu throwable weapons that are very useful for crowd control, especially in 2D sections where movement is severely restricted. Likewise, a skilled player may be able to lure groups of enemies at self-destructing red ones to quickly clear the area.

Interestingly enough, the game will not consider thrown Hoverbizzles to have been defeated, and if the player returns to the area where they first appeared, they will be there again. The only way to get rid of them for good is by depleting their health bars.
