 Anime Appearances
Kuwagamon appeared on the first episode when the Digi-Destined first found their digimon. Kuwagamon wasn't a victim of any black gears, but it attacked the digi-destined anyway, being a natural-born predator.
Kuwagamon cornered the tamers and their digimon at the edge of the cliff, and the tamers digimon tried to drive Kuwagamon away, but they were only at their In-Training level forms at the time so their attacks had no effect.
It was a little later in the episode though that their digimon digivolved into their Rookie forms, and combining their special techniques, were able to take Kuwagamon down.
Or so they thought, soon after Kuwagamon re-appeared and attack the cliff edge with it's Scissor Claw technique, causing the cliff esge to break off, sending the tamers and digimon descending fast to a river.
Kuwagamon later appeared in Episode 18- The Piximon Cometh. As the Digi-Destined were argueing where to look, and where to rest after walking endless hours in the desert, Kuwagamon grabbed Tai and Agumon out from the the ground. Tai was too afraid to digivolve Agumon after the SkullGreymon incident, but Piximon came to save the day and destroyed Kuwagamon.
Kuwagamon's last appearance in the first season was in Episode 39- "The Battle for Earth", when the Digiworld appeared in the sky. As a plane tried to see what the Digiworld was, it broke down at the border, Kuwagamon making matters worse by causing damage to the plane. However, when Kabuterimon attacked it while Garudamon saved the plane, it went through like an illusion. Therefore, Kuwagamon escaped in the last encounter.
