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.
- Scissor Hands (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.

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.
- Kuwagamon (クワガーモン)
Official romanization given by the Digimon Reference Book and used in the franchise.
The DigiDestined encounter a Kuwagamon on their first day in the Digital World. Their Digimon digivolve from their In-Training forms to their Rookie forms to fight it. When it breaks the cliff ledge, they fall into the river, landing on Gomamon's "Marching Fishes" attack, and the ground that Kuwagamon is on breaks and falls into the river. Kuwagamon survives, however and shows up on the Server Continent when it emerges from the desert sands and attacks Taichi "Tai" Kamiya and Agumon until it is defeated by Piximon's attack.
In the Japanese Version, the Folder Kuwagamon is a different individual than the Kuwagamon from File Island.

Some Kuwagamon are under the control of the Digimon Emperor's Dark Spirals and join the DarkTyrannomon in attacking a group of Tuskmon. One attacks Cody Hida and Koushiro "Izzy" Izumi, and Digmon fights that one. A Kuwagamon is also in the forest where BlackWarGreymon passes by, cowering in a tree. Another one crashes Yamato "Matt" Ishida's concert. When Digimon start to appear in the Real World, a Kuwagamon is in New York. Multiple Kuwagamon show up during the final battle against MaloMyotismon.
Digimon Adventure tri.
Six years later Kuwagamon is one of the first Digimon shown to be Infected and it realises in the Real World. It attacks Taichi "Tai" Kamiya after he chased it around the City on his bike. 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.
Led by an Okuwamon, a swarm of Kuwagumon attack Tai, Mimi, Agumon and Palmon, beating up on Greymon and Togemon. However, Izzy and MegaKabuterimon arrive to rescue the others and take the battle with Okuwamon into open space. Following Izzy's direction, the other four lead the Kuwagamon to some mirror rocks that they had found earlier, confusing the insects and breaking their coordination by using reflections against them. Taking advantage of this, Greymon digivolves into MetalGreymon and destroys the Kuwagamon as they charge at him.
