FanBeemon is an Insectoid Digimon and a carrier of the X Antibody. It belongs to the mysterious "aerial, covert honey base, Royal Base". Although its daily life differs from that of other Insectoid Digimon, it is a strong, dedicated worker due to its personality being so cheerful. It always gets along with Plant Digimon like Palmon or Lillymon. Because the base is usually under construction, it has the duty of carrying home data left on fields of flowers or vegetation, little by little, to use as raw materials, causing it to be classified as a Virus-species. Also, because the base is defended by powerful Digimon, making it impossible to approach, the goal of that construction is a mystery at present. It's wisest to just run away when it uses its "88 Call".[3]

Attacks

  4. This name is a pun, as "88", pronounced here as "Hachihachi" (ハチハチ?), is a homophone for "Bees" (蜂々 Hachihachi?), but is also a reference to the figure-eight waggle dance that honey bees use to communicate directions to their brethren.
