HerculesKabuterimon is an Insectoid Digimon. It digivolved with the data of Kabuterimon- and Kuwagamon-species Digimon. It has a gigantic horn and scissors, and it can be said that its form perfectly compensates for the weaknesses of those two types of Digimon, which had opposing natures. Its body shines gold, and it has regained and strengthened the flying ability which MegaKabuterimon had lost, so it rushes about the Digital World at supersonic speed. Having now accomplished this Mega digivolution, there are probably few beings who can rival HerculesKabuterimon[7], the greatest of them being GranKuwagamon whose battle with it continues without ever ending.[8]

Attacks

  • Mega Electro Shocker[9] (Giga Blaster): A lightwave explosion[10] that is an enhanced version of "Electro Shocker" which will annihilate anyone it hits.
  • Giga Scissor Claw (巨大はさみ Kyodai Hasami?, lit. "Giant Pincers")
  • High Mega Blaster
  • Horn Buster II (ホーンバスター改 Horn Buster Kai?, lit. "Horn Buster Revision")

Design

HerculesKabuterimon's design is derived from the Atlas Beetle (Chalcosoma atlas). It is a bipedal Digimon with four arms. Its head is eyeless and has three long horns. It has a pair of large wings and a pair of elytra on its upper back. It is gold in coloration with red muscle in the brachium of its arms and its thighs. It has a stinger on its pelvis.
