Beezwax is a fictional character in the vehicle action series Vigilante 8.


Beezwax is a disgruntled bee keeper who discovered that his bees had become irradiated. Who or what is responsible for this hasn't been revealed, but it had caused him to go insane. He disliked "city slickers," and did whatever he could to keep them off his land. He joined the Coyotes to show the world how dangerous he was and thus was deemed wanted by the FBI.


Beezwax's Buzzkill

In his V8 ending, Beezwax appears to subdue his pursuers as he showcases his prize: three stolen nuke warheads, which he looks at with pride. All of a sudden, one of his bees land on one of the bombs and stings it, causing it to explode, killing Beezwax.

In his Vigilante 8: Arcade ending, Beezwax, with the help of an ancient Indian treasure map, finds the lost land of Honeycomb Meadow.
