Kuwagamon is an Insectoid Digimon. It is armed with gigantic pincers on its head. Like Kabuterimon, it has combat abilities that far exceed those of similar species that inhabit File Island. It is protected by its tenacious power and sturdy shell, and in particular, as the power of its pincers is super-powerful, once it clamps an enemy, it will squeeze until the opponent's life is extinguished. There is a perfect rivalry between it and the Vaccine-attribute Kabuterimon, and there is only "Conflict" between them.[7]

Attacks

  • Scissor Hands[8] (Scissor Arms): Clamps the opponent with its pincers, easily cutting hard substances to pieces.
  • Power Guillotine
  • Trapping Scissors (Trap Scissors)
  • Shadow Slash: Slashes with lightning speed.
  • Crunch Arm

Design[]

Kuwagamon's design is derived from the Saw Stag Beetle (Prosopocoilus inclinatus). It is a bipedal Digimon with four arms. Its head is eyeless with black markings and a pair of long mandibles. It has a pair of large wing and a pair of elytra on its upper back. It is red in coloration with black muscle in the torso, arms, and legs.

Etymologies[]

After Kuwagamon destroys his bike, Tai is saved by Agumon, who appears out of nowhere, and then digivolves to Greymon. The infection causes Kuwagamon to more powerful than normal, something that Greymon comments on, stating Kuwagamon was more powerful than last time they fought, which leads to Kuwagamon defeating Greymon. Two more infected Kuwagamon join the battle through a distortion, as do the other DigiDestined. Garurumon is also defeated by one of the Kuwagamon, though Birdramon, Kabuterimon, Angemon, and Gatomon team up to kill two of them. Alphamon then opens up a distortion, and kills the final Kuwagamon seconds before it was about to kill Garurumon. Reunion (Adventure tri.)
