TyrantKabuterimon is an Insect Digimon. It is the "King of Insects" (King of Bugs) which governs all Insect Digimon. Its stronghold, the "Under Forest", exists deep underneath the darkest forest, and it is said that it only moves at night. It is able to manipulate every Insect Digimon at will, so it almost never fights in person. Due to the high density Chrome Digizoid which compose its shell, it is thought to be impossible for ordinary Digimon to even scratch it.[3]

  • Bee Cyclone: Summons all of its insect followers to construct an impenetrable wall of bugs.
  • Insect Cannon

The thoracic horn has gray eyespots and a gray crest on top of it while its cephalic horn mimics a lower jaw. It has a sixteen pairs of glowing orange wings with eight that extend from its pauldrons and eight that extend from its waist. It is purple and black in coloration with blue muscle in the abdominal region. It has red eyes on its chest, an orange orb embedded in its abdominal region, and two small pairs of arms just above its waist. Its lower body is a long tail with two flail-like antenna on the sides under the wings and a stinger on the end of it.
