Kuwagamon is an Insectoid Digimon. It is armed with gigantic pincers on its head. Like Kabuterimon, it has combat abilities that far exceed those of similar species that inhabit File Island. It is protected by its tenacious power and sturdy shell, and in particular, as the power of its pincers is super-powerful, once it clamps an enemy it will squeeze until the opponent's life is extinguished. There is a perfect rivalry between it and the Vaccine-attribute Kabuterimon, and there is only "Conflict" between them.[6]


  • Scissor Hands[7] (Scissor Arms): Clamps the opponent with its pincers, easily cutting hard substances to pieces.
  • Power Guillotine
  • Trap Scissors


Kuwagamon's design is derived from the Saw Stag Beetle (Prosopocoilus inclinatus). It is a bipedal Digimon with four arms. Its head is eyeless with black markings and a pair of long mandibles. It has a pair of large wing and a pair of elytra on its upper back. It is red in coloration with black muscle in the torso, arms, and legs.
