All of the other mavericks in the X series seem pretty self explanatory, except this dude?
Anyone know?

Stag beetle, actually. "Kuwagata" is Japanese for stag beetle.

Not all of them were self explanatory.

I had the hardest time trying to figure out just what X6's Infinity Mijinion was representing.

Yeah, even after learning he's supposed to be a fly (I guess), I still don't even understand where the word "mijinion" comes from O_o

"Mijinion" comes from the Japanese word "mijinko", which is a daphnia, a type of water flea.

Wow, thanks. I figured it was something like that, but I'd never heard of mijinko before. I was looking up the Japanese common names of a few different species of fly that I knew and couldn't find anything. I even looked up the extended nomenclature of flies to see if it was based on a family name or something like Scaravich.

OK, I just realized you said water flea. So he's not a fly? XZD I've been misled this whole time! Even still, he just looks like a weird bubble monster more than an animal to me anyway XZD

Nope, not a fly. XD He's a flea. Personally, I think "Infinity Mijinion" sounds a lot cooler than "Infinity Flea."
