KaratsukiNumemon is a Crustacean Digimon. It was a Numemon that made use of its intelligence and found a shell to cover itself in order to protect its body. As a result, while it is slightly more intelligent than Numemon, it in turn grew a cowardly personality, and will retreat into its shell in shock at even the slightest disturbance. Its defense is extremely high while it is holed up in its shell, remaining firm even when it is kicked or stepped on.
