Hokusai the Beetle Designer changes your Rollerbeetle Racer and Racing Beetle designs.



"For a small fee I can change how your rollerbeetle looks. After all, it is not whether you win or lose, but how awesome you look while racing, that matters.
Which of these designs interests you?"
(Your current design will not be listed as an option.)
Yes Plain (The default design.)
Yes Racing Stripe
Yes Flames
Yes Eight Ball
Yes Peace, Love, and Understanding
Yes Tiger Stripes
Yes Wing
Yes Eyeball
"I would be happy to give you the <name> design. It will cost you only 100 gold."
Yes Yes! (Pay 100 gold.)
With enough gold:
"There you go. I hope you enjoy your new paint job. Come back again if you wish to try a different design."
Without enough gold:
"I am sorry. You do not have enough gold."
No I need to think this over.

Gallery of designs[edit]


  • Once purchased, a design is permanent and will always appear on your Rollerbeetle Racer and Racing Beetle's shell until you decide to purchase a different one.
  • Your Rollerbeetle Racer and Racing Beetle's base color changes randomly upon entering an instance; it is not related to the design and there is currently no way to choose a color permanently.
  • Similar to Racing Beetles and other animals in the Zaishen Menagerie Grounds, he will spawn immediately (without having to rezone) upon unlocking the Racing Beetle via Helena.


  • Salome states that the patterns on a rolling Rain Beetle inspired Hokusai's designs.
  • Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker.
