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. Before Kunemon's discovery, Kabuterimon was thought to be the only existing Insectoid Digimon. There is a perfect rivalry between it and the Virus-attribute Kuwagamon, and there is only "Conflict" between them.
