Kabuterimon is a Legendary Digimon known for being part of The Original Ones, a group of Digimon consisting of the Greymon, Garurumon, Togemon, Ikkakumon, Kabuterimon, Birdramon, Angemon, and Gatomon lines. Technically speaking, however, the entire line from Pabumon to HerculesKabuterimon is given the same god-like status, and are worshipped almost like they were gods along with the other seven. They were known to have set the very foundation of the Digital World during their era starting with the climatic battle between Greymon and Parrotmon, all the way down to the final showdown with Apocalymon, which was the first major era of the many universes of the Digimon anime. It is considered rather odd in some ways though. In the B/C universe it is a Virus Digimon, yet it retains the exact same behavior it has as a Vaccine Digimon in other universes. Even the later stages are no different from their alternate universe counterparts, despite also being Virus Digimon.

Digimon World: Bronze and Cobalt Versions

Similar to Greymon's line, Kabuterimon's line is much more rare in B/C compared to other games, and is also one of the final opponents of the Legend Tamer rank battle, faced as HerculesKabuterimon, as the tamers faced are the original 8 digidestined themselves. It digivolves from Tentomon at Level 20 with 180 Defense, and into MegaKabuterimon at Level 32 with 250 Defense, and depending on the Armor Shell item it has equipped, into either the Red or Blue version of MegaKabuterimon. It is obtained as Pabumon at the same time as Botamon and the other fresh stages of The Original Ones. It specializes in the Thunder Element and is a Tank Digimon, typically favoring Defense for the most part.
