GranKuwagamon is an Insectoid Digimon. It is the ultimate form of Kuwagamon-species Digimon. It is an especially evil being among Insectoid Digimon, and if you happen to stumble across GranKuwagamon within the Digital World, you won't be able to do anything but curse yourself. Because it inhabits the depths of the Digital World's forests, and is only active at night, it is called the "Demon of the Deep Forest". Also, its greatest rival is HerculesKabuterimon, and the battle between these two continues without ever ending.[7]
