Kunemon is a Larva Digimon. As Insect Digimon children are very unique beings among other Digimon, its digivolved form is still unclear, but it seems to be obvious from Kunemon's discovery that there exist Insect Digimon other than Kabuterimon. Kunemon has lightning-patterns all over its body, and although it is uncertain whether the lightning-patterns on the portion considered its face are organs equivalent to eyes, because they change shape in accordance with its emotions, it is said that they probably are eyes. Its personality is fairly malicious.[2]


  • Electric Thread:[3] Fires an electric thread from its mouth.
  • Poison Winder (いじわる Ijiwaru?, lit. "Malicious")
  • Speeding Thread (Palsy Thread)
  • Poison Ride
  • Super Shocker (Petit Thunder): Electrocutes with a small ball of electricity.
  • Fox Tail (Tail Strike)


Kunemon's design draws influence from the bee-fly larva (Bombylius major). It is a small yellow caterpillar with black lightning shaped stripes, blue mandibles, a pair of long antennae, twelve legs with blue claws on the front six, and a long stinger on the end of its abdomen.

It only eats Meat, Giant Meat, Sirloin, a Super Carrot, a Hawk Radish, a Digital Mushroom, Digital Anchovy, or Spoiled Meat.[citation needed] Once Mameo feeds it, it immediately fights against him. After being defeated, it appears in the city at night and tells Mameo the names of the special foods for each area. It drops an MP Chip, which raises the partner's MP stat. It also opens a path straight from File City to the Digital Bridge.
