"Hercules - The Giant Beetle" is the eighteenth episode of Season Five of the PBS Kids show Wild Kratts. It is the one hundred-fortieth episode of the series overall.


The Kratt Brothers find a Hercules Beetle in the rainforest and learns about their huge horns, fighting abilities, and cool exoskeleton. But the Hercules beetle accidentally gets enlarged by the miniaturizer, causing it to grow as big as the Tortuga, and cause huge destruction. So the Kratt Brothers use Hercules Beetle Powers to try to fight him, while the gang tries to shrink him back down.
