* ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' has a prime example of a Type B in Metabee (the Kabuto) and Rokusho (the Kuwaga), who are Gold and Silver, respectively, and have extremely different personalities, as well as the nature of their Medals, though sometimes cross into being Type A as Rokusho will sometimes offer his assistance to Ikki and Metabee. Unusually, the franchise actually has a third "brother" - [[WaveMotionGun Arcbeetle]], based on the [[http://wallpapers111.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Hercules-Beetle-Wallpaper-7.jpg Hercules beetle,]] which is the least prominent but most powerful member of the lot.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' has the Riders Blade (rhinoceros beetle) and Garren (stag beetle). They're usually allies (with Garren even being TheMentor) but circumstances and [[PoorCommunicationKills poor communication]] keep pitting them against each other.

Instead of a ladybug, the other two Riders are praying mantis and spider-themed.

Added DiffLines:

*** The unused "Hexagon" concept for ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm'' would have added an American-original ladybug Ranger to the Thunder Rangers so they would be on equal footing with the Wind Rangers.

** Averted in ''Anime/DigimonFrontier''. One of the heroes has kabutomushi-themed forms Blitzmon (Beetlemon in the dub) and Bolgmon ([=MetalKabuterimon=]), but he has no kuwaga-themed counterpart. The Digimon his power comes from, [=AncientBeetlemon=], has features of both, however.
*** In the broader franchise, [=AncientBeetlemon=] is the MonsterProgenitor of both the Kabuterimon and Kuwagamon lines.

** ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'': Double and Accel, initially rivals and later allies, own black and red Stag Phones and all-blue Beetle Phone, respectively. The Riders themselves also carry a bit of the motif; as they have letters W and A on their helmets patterned after the beetles.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'': While not explicitly bug-themed, Kamen Riders Ghost and Specter have similar-yet-different Rider forms with one difference being that Ghost has one prominent horn on his helmet while Specter has two. They're another example of rivals turning into allies.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'', Beetler ("Kuwanobushi" in Japan) and Rhinoggin ("Musha Kabuto") are described as being both Types A and B; with a friendly rivalry rather than an antagonistic one.

Added DiffLines:

* The Mechabuton MiniMecha in the first ''Anime/TimeBokan'' was based on the Kabutomushi and had a smaller ladybug mini-carrier, but didn't have anything Kuwagatta related. Acts as more of a Type C since the Kuwagatta mecha was made long after the Mechabuton had been put out of commission.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/ShowByRock'' has this in the form of Kabutomoaki and Kuwagatatsuya, two members of the band Dropout Sensei. Due to their status as childhood friends, they firmly fit in the Type A category. They also have a third member (Tentomutsumi) that represents the "ladybug" part of the motif, despite being more of a beetle "brother" than a beetle "sister".
