Kuwagamon was a recurring enemy in Digimon Adventure 01 and various other Digimon media. Typically depicted as a strong, but simple-minded beast that is constantly looking for fights, Kuwagamon has become somewhat of a staple in Digimon media as being the first; or one of the first enemies the protagonist fight.

According to official lore, Kuwagamon are native rivals to Kabuterimon and that there is "only" conflict between the two species.
