Impmon is a trouble making Digimon who spends most of his time picking on humans. He harasses the Tamers and their Digimon because of his dislike towards humans, saying that no "self-respecting Digimon" would ever ally themselves to humans, but secretly envies their ability to digivolve. [[spoiler:After a beating from a Deva in an attempt to prove himself, being humiliated and having his ego crushed, Impmon readily accepts a deal with Caturamon. Impmon would gain the ability to digivolve, but, in return, Impmon would have to kill the Tamers and their Digimon. As Beelzemon, he became obsessed with power and murdered Leomon before being stopped. Afterwards, he becomes TheAtoner and puts his efforts to making it up to the Tamers.]]

A powerful Digimon that patrols the net, he came across an Apocalymon attempting to destroy the real world and intervened. Unfortunately, before he could finish the job, Apocalymon reformatted into Mephistomon and escaped. He later transported Henry and Rika to Takato's location so all three Tamers could take down Mephistomon

An evil Digimon that looks like a demonic humanoid goat, Mephistomon was spawned from remnants of an Apocalymon that had planned on destroying the Earth, and appeared in the film ''Digimon Tamers: Battle of Adventurers''. While being hunted down by an Omnimon, he escaped to the real world, assumed the guise Ryuuji Tamashiro of Okinawan VP Laboratories, and began marketing the V-Pet, which was implanted with a virus that could bring down all electronics, and make it easier for Digimon to reach Earth. He was destroyed (despite managing to Digivolve to Gulfmon) by [=WarGrowlmon=], Rapidmon and Taomon's Trinity Force, and his virus was eliminated by a vaccine hidden in the original V-Pet (which became a Seasermon[=/=]Labramon) by it's creator.

%%* UsefulNotes/ScottishEnglish: Ebonwumon is also the only Sovereign to have a peculiar accent in the English dub. Specifically, one of his heads speaks in a rather stereotypical Scottish accent, while the other one is ''Irish''. Try not to think too hard about that



Once a simple data cleanup program, its purpose is to delete other programs before they get too big. Like other digital beings, it has evolved into a more advanced and powerful state, but its parameters on what constitutes "too advanced" haven't changed, transforming it into an OmnicidalManiac which attempts to delete everything. After [[spoiler:hitching a ride to the human world and assimilating Jeri,]] it goes FromBadToWorse. [[CosmicHorrorStory Much]] [[MindRape worse]].

FromBadToWorse.



** To put things into perspective about how ''unnatural'' this "Unknown" type is, there is only ''one'' Digimon that uses it - the ''[[Anime/DigimonSavers Gizumon]].'' Go on, ''guess what [[FinalSolution they have in common.]]'' The notion that, had Kurata not found Belphemon to use as his personal weapon of mass destruction, could've created something on the scale and power of the D-Reaper using the Gizumon as a basis, with a ''much more properly defined purpose,'' is quite frankly ''terrifying''.
*** [[FromBadToWorse It gets worse.]] The "Unknown" type is actually called the "Unidentified" type and is shared by more than just D-Reaper and Gizumon. It's also inhabited by the likes of [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Apocalymon]], [[Anime/DigimonTheMovie Diaboromon,]] [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Armageddemon]], [[Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime Quartzmon]], and perhaps scariest of all, ''[[DeusEstMachina Yggdrasil]]''. So to clarify, the D-Reaper shares its type with a being made up of the pain and suffering of every fallen Digimon, a virus spawned Digimon who tried to nuke the entire world ''[[OmnicidalManiac because]]'', said virus spawned Digimon's more powerful {{Kaiju}} of a revived form, an all devouring abomination, and the Digimon equivalent of ''God''.
