TwinBee (ツインビー TsuinBī?) is the titular character and main protagonist of the TwinBee series. He is an anthropomorphic and sentient blue aircraft with a single canopy. He was created by a scientist called Dr. Cinnamon, and it is this brilliant man's grandson, Light, its current pilot. TwinBee is WinBee's twin brother and GwinBee's older brother.
TwinBee is present in every game of the series and has also made recurring appearances in many other Konami games, whether it is as a cameo or a fully playable character, including the Parodius and Wai Wai series, to name a few. TwinBee also appeared in pop'n music 17: THE MOVIE as a cameo character and Bombergirl as model figure.
In his first localized game in North America, he was renamed Stinger, but has since recovered his original name in the following installments.
