MetalKabuterimon is an Android Digimon. It possesses power over Thunder which bears the might of AncientBeetlemon. It has a cautious and prudent personality because it was discovered in a defense system created in reference to the Scarab treasure chamber in the deepest part of a pyramid. During battle, it patiently serves as a shield for its comrades using its sturdy armor and endures the opponent's attacks, but if it reaches its critical point, it will go on an intense offensive with all of its gunports until even the opponent's form is reduced to nothing. Because its heavy weight lowers its mobility, it is basically the one in charge of logistical support. However, in close-range battles, it obliterates the opponent with its various armaments.[4]

Attacks

  • Bolo Thunder (Ultimate Thunder): Collects and then fires all of its energy from both of its arms.
    • Anti-Ground Ultimate Thunder: Fires Bolo Thunder straight down from the air.
  • Electron Cannon (Field Destroyer): Fires an extremely high-speed positron laser from the gun turret on its head.
  • Gigantic Impact: Rams the enemy while rushing at full speed.

Design

MetalKabuterimon's entire body is covered in armor, with treads instead of legs, cannons on the ends of its arms, and its horn is a large turret.

Etymologies

Development

During development, the initial names used until Bandai settled on the Japanese name of "Bolgmon" were "BilliBeemon" (ビリビーモン) and "MetalKabuterimon" (メタルカブテリモン), the latter ended up being used as its dub name. It also went through multiple design changes until settling on its final design.[please confirm][5]
