Shadowborg is Vexor's own evil Beetleborg created from ionic DNA and insectite material stolen from the Blue Stinger Beetleborg.

Character HistoryEdit

Not only is Shadowborg created from the basic materials as Blue Stinger, but he is enhanced with powers that mimicked the powers of the other Beetleborgs. Shadowborg can run faster than the Green Hunter, jump higher than Red Striker, and remain underwater for 51 minutes.

Shadowborg's armor design is modeled after a longicorn beetle. With his Shadow Claw, Shadowborg can cut through any substance known to the planet. Shadowborg was successful in stopping the Beetleborgs, if only for a short while by stealing their powers. This led to the kids finding the Beetleborgs writer Art Fortunes who would then create the White Blaster Beetleborg.

He was finally destroyed by the combined efforts of the White Blaster Beetleborg and Blue Stinger Beetleborg in his Mega Blue Form.


  • Ironically the character from Juukou B-Fighter that Shadowborg was based on did have a human identity, while Josh's character didn't.
  • Shadowborg is one of the few Beetleborgs monsters to be outright destroyed rather than just sent back to the comics, as he wasn't from the comics to begin with and thus couldn't be sent back.
