Some of the names in this Article use an unofficial English translation of its official Japanese Name. The name is obtained either by using Japanese translating programs or through previous existing English equivalent terms in the game.

These Carapaceons have a yellow and cream colored shell covering their bodies. They possess four eyes and four legs, along with two arms in the front that resemble pincers (though they lack any pinching functionality). Towards its posterior is a long, spined tail, which bears a stinger usually hung over the Kusubami's head. Many yellow markings such as stripes can be found on it, especially on its spikes and claws.
Kusubami are seen as peaceful until disturbed or prey is detected. Once disturbed they attack anyone that approach's with relentless aggression.
