Cheetah as seen in R-Type.

Unlike it's animal namesake, the Cheetah is a lumbering aerial defensive unit. It slowly advances on incoming units, firing intense laser beams that can't be blocked by Force units. It's more fragile than its large size would otherwise suggest and concentrated fire will bring it down quickly. This Bydo unit often travels in groups in order to saturate the area with laser fire.



A combination of machine and creature. It grows like an organic organism, but uses a computer for mental functions. Fires powerful beams.

It's found, in large numbers, in The Den.
