Kabuterimon is an Insectoid Digimon. Among newly discovered Digimon, it is a fairly unique Insectoid Digimon. The details of how it digivolved into an insect Type are unclear, but it has both ant-like power and the flawless defensive ability possessed by a beetle. Its personality is the epitome of an insect's, and because it only possesses the instincts for survival, it has no intelligence or anything similar. It swoops down on hostile Virus Digimon without mercy. Its head has been metallized, and boasts the defense of an iron wall.[5] Before Kunemon's discovery, Kabuterimon was thought to be the only existing Insectoid Digimon.[6]


  • Electro Shocker (Mega Blaster): Fires an electrical ball at enemies.
  • Beetle Horn Attack (Beetle Horn): Charges his horn with electricity, and attacks enemies with it.
  • Electric Storm: Charges his body and arms with electricity, then flies around with the electricity attacking nearby opponents.


Kabuterimon's design is derived from the Asiatic rhinoceros beetle (Oryctes rhinoceros). It is a bipedal Digimon with four arms. Its head is eyeless and has a black skull helmet with a long horn. It has two pairs of large wings on its upper back. It is blue in coloration with black muscle in the torso, arms, and legs. It has a black stinger on its pelvis.
