Variations Subspecies


Digimon Dictionary


Among the many newly discovered Insect Digimon, this Digimon is quite unusual. What species of Insect Digimon evolved into Kabuterimon and under what conditions remains unknown, but the power of an ant and the defenses of a beetle have been perfectly combined. Its personality matches those insects bear, which is why it survives purely on instincts and completely lacks intelligence. The relationships between it and Virus-attributed Digimon are hostile, and they both attack each other relentlessly. Its head has been metalized and boasts bullet-proof protection. Its special attack is "Mega Blaster". (Wildermon)

Digimon V-Tamer Residence


An Insect Digimon that took on the form of a beetle. It's thought that it has the combined qualities of an ant in terms of power and a rhinoceros beetle in terms of invulnerability, and it has a high amount of attack and defense. The crown of its head has been metalized and is like an iron wall in terms of defense. It has the same type of personality that all insects bear, which means it lacks intelligence and survives only on its instincts alone. It regards Kuwagamon as its rival. (Wildermon)
