The Warriors

Takuya Kanbara

Takuya begins the series as a typical "goggle boy", (only he wears a hat underneath his gray and square goggles)—energetic and athletic, but tending to act without thinking and very stubborn. He has a strong sense of justice, and tries to use his power to do what he believes is right. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientGreymon, Warrior of Flame.

His Spirit Evolutions are as follows:
  • Rookie: Flamemon, a small humanoid with goat-like features and red hair. He temporarily becomes this form for an episode in the Real World
  • Human Hybrid: Agunimon (Agnimon), a demon man digimon. He resembles a human wearing dragon armor that is reminiscent of Greymon
  • Beast Hybrid: BurningGreymon (Vritramon), A demon dragon digimon. A vaguely humanoid dragon with an Arm Cannon on each wrist
  • Advance Hybrid: Aldamon, a demon man digimon. Basically, Agunimon's head and hands on BurningGreymon's body.
  • Zeta Hybrid: EmperorGreymon (KaiserGreymon), A dragon warrior digimon. More or less a heavily armored WarGreymon with a huge sword that doubles as a crossbow.

Voiced by: Junko Takeuchi (JP), Michael Reisz (EN), Dave Wittenberg (EN) (As Emperor Greymon and in The Movie)

  • Arm Cannon: He has the arm-mounted variety as BurningGreymon and Aldamon.
  • Badass: All of his Digimon forms
  • BFS: Emperor Greymon's sword, which also acts as a BFG (Dragonfire Crosssbow) and a fire attack (Pyro Dragons).
  • Crucified Hero Shot
  • Cute Little Fangs: As Agunimon and Aldamon.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Near all his Digimon forms are demon types.
  • Elemental Punch: A fire-based one as Agunimon.
  • Expy: His actions, personality, goggles and role are of the Tai trademark. He even has a very similar character arc:
    • Starts out as a hotheaded Idiot Hero, he then has a close brush with death and learns to think, becoming an effective leader in the process.
    • Likewise, some of his evolutions are expies of Greymon and his evolutions. Vritramon was renamed BurningGreymon in the dub to drive home the reference.
    • Losing control as Burninggreymon is similar to how Tai lost control of Skullgreymon.
  • Facial Markings: Both Agunimon and Aldamon have two red stripes on either cheek and they appear on Susanoomon.
  • Fiery Salamander: Not as much as his predecessors, since his first Digimon forms are more humanoid-looking, but the motif is still there.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Yet again. But he does use them properly.
  • The Hero
    • Idiot Hero: A stunning demonstration of this was the way he handled Duskmon's first and second appearances. Koji nearly freaked out about it. His Character Development does away with this trope.
  • Heroic BSOD: After his stunning loss against Duskmon, Takuya enters one. It takes a reminder of his origins for him to snap out of it.
  • He's Back: When he recovers from his Heroic BSOD and returns to the Digital World.
  • Hotblooded: Though noticeably less so than Tai or Davis, or Marcus sitting at a sort of half-way point between them and Takato.
  • Hot Wings: BurningGreymon, Aldamon and by extension, AncientGreymon Depending on the Artist.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: EmperorGreymon's Pyro Dragons attack.
  • Jumped at the Call
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority
  • Leitmotif: "Honoo no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Flame"; it's an instrumental rendition of his Image Song.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Mixes this with Jack of All Stats. He hits pretty hard (not quite as hard as JP's evolutions, at least compared level to level) and he's surprisingly mobile and agile (though he's not as fast as Zoe or Koji)
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: His Aldamon form is a mix of Agunimon and BurningGreymon.
    • Agunimon's original self, AncientGreymon, is a quadrupedal BurningGreymon with Agunimon's leg armor on the forelegs.
  • Morphic Resonance: EmperorGreymon's helmet has a metallic version the horns from Agunimon's mask in the equivalent locations (right next to the eyes). In both forms, it's a Call Back to WarGreymon In addition, Susanoomon has Agunimon's belt buckle, though the buckle has a different symbol on it. It's from MagnaGarurumon, but it's the right color, the same shape and in the same place. Agunimon's Facial Markings also appear on Susanoomon.
  • Not a Game: Takuya eventually realizes that he must put more effort into his responsibilities as a legendary warrior, and make a greater effort to safeguard the lives of his friends.
  • The Other Darrin: In the Frontier movie dub, he's voiced by Dave Wittenberg, although he pretty much sounds nearly identical to Michael Reisz
  • Our Demons Are Different: Agunimon and Aldamon are demon man digimon.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: BurningGreymon is based on Vritra, an evil dragon in Vedic folklore. Aldamon carries some of these features.
  • Personality Powers
  • Playing with Fire
  • Protagonist Power Up Privileges: To an even greater degree than the first two seasons. He gets access to two power levels that most of the team doesn't instead of just one like Agumon and Veemon.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Koji's blue.
  • Ship Tease / Will They or Won't They?: With Zoe, they do a sort of flirting-while-denying it thing throughout the series, and an episode right near the end all but outright states that they like each other (and in that way, no matter Takuya's protests)
  • Shoulders of Doom: EmperorGreymon's armor has these.
  • Sigil Spam: All of his Digimon forms except BurningGreymon have a stylized fire kanji somewhere on their person. EmperorGreymon has two on his chestplate.
  • Spam Attack: BurningGreymon's Pyro Barrage and Aldamon's Atomic Inferno.
  • Story Breaker Power: Like Koji, he gets a Zeta Hybrid (the equivalent of a second evolution Mega, like Omnimon or Gallantmon Crimson mode, though perhaps not quite as strong). EmperorGreymon is second only to Susanoomon as far as our heroes' Digimon goes and perhaps third strongest in the series after he proves his superiority over Dynasmon
  • This Is Unforgivable: Takuya immediately flies into the mode of this trope in the third-to-last episode when Lucemon absorbs Koichi's data following his Heroic Sacrifice, announcing that he has gone too far, after which both he and Koji trigger their Transformation Sequence into Susanoomon.
  • Tornado Move: Pyro Tornado.
  • Wreathed in Flames: Agunimon's Pyro Tornado and BurningGreymon's Wildfire Tsunami.

Koji Minamoto (Minamoto Kouji)

Koji starts the series as the group loner - a kid who wanted friends, but always tried not to get too attached because he believed they'd always go their separate ways eventually. He showed up to help the other DigiDestined from time to time, and then eventually joins the group permanently. He often distances himself from the others, refusing to let anyone get too close to him. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientGarurumon, Warrior of Light.

His Spirit Evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Lobomon (Wolfmon),a warrior digimon. His appearance is that of a human wearing wolf themed armor that vaguely resembles Garurumon
  • Beast Hybrid: KendoGarurumon (Garmmon), A cyborg digimon. A robotic wolf with wings and roller skates. Strongly resembles MetalGarurumon
  • Advance Hybrid: Beowulfmon, a warrior digimon. Basically, Lobomon wearing parts of KendoGarurumon as armor and weapons.
  • Zeta Hybrid: MagnaGarurumon, A cyborg digimon. A humanoid wolf wearing heavy armor and artillery

Zoe Orimoto (Orimoto Izumi)

"I won't act like someone I'm not just so I can be popular."

Zoe is the only girl in the group. She is very kind and while she fights, she does it to protect others and herself. As Ranamon put it, she's usually too nice to kill an enemy. Although, she does still have her tough side, and is not afraid of speaking her mind when she feels strongly about something. She is very good looking too, and all the guys have a crush on her, especially J.P. Her Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientKazemon, Warrior of Wind.

Her spirit evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Kazemon (Fairymon), a fairy digimon. She is an attractive girl wearing purple armor with butterfly wings
  • Beast Hybrid: Zephyrmon (Shutumon), A bird-man digimon. Resembles a more mature looking Kazemon with more feral armor and large bird wings as well as an odd bird wing shaped haircut.
Voiced by: Sawa Ishige (JP), Michelle Ruff (EN)

  • Ass Kicks You: Love Tap/Arido Anca falls under this.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Big Eater: More than JP!
  • Blow You Away
  • Brought Down to Normal: She loses her spirit to Grumblemon. J.P. gets it back for her later on.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Japanese, but grew up in Italy. Still a blonde, but this is anime.
  • Cat Fight: With Ranamon.
  • Catch Phrase: "Commozione!", in Japan only.
  • The Chick
  • Cute Monster Girl: Her "Beast" Spirit is much more human looking than any of the guys. And...really, really cute. Lamp Shaded; this really pisses of Calmarimon. In fact, all of her forms could count
  • Coy, Girlish Flirt Pose: Combined with an animated version of Say It with Hearts, to try and get help from a Trailmon, of all things. It works. Takuya sweatdrops, while JP is in love.
  • Dude Magnet: Takuya , Koji, and JP have all shown some interest in her. Even Tommy shows slight jelousy when she is giving Takuya and Koji a hug but not him and JP, and the Honey Beemon and Toucanmon are both attracted to her.
  • Expy: Has traits of Sora and Mimi from the first series.
  • Facial Markings: A green stripe on either cheek and on either side of the forehead as Kazemon.
  • Fanservice: Gotta love a girl who can envision herself modeling skimpy bathing suits and win an eating contest all in the span of three or four episodes, not to mention the skimpy outfits of her Digimon forms.
    • She seems to be the first Digimon main female drawn for fanservice. Not only the aforementioned, but she wears a short shirt that shows her stomach, has long blonde hair, and has a sexy pink skirt. She even has moments where she's shown undressing, and one where she's almost naked with Takuya and J.P. walking in on accident staring, showing further she was intended for fanservice.
    • Not to mention the fact that almost all the males in the show are shown to be attracted to her somewhat, even her own teammates. At times, she even has used her good looks to bribe males into doing things for her, especially J.P.
    • Sexy Dynamite!
  • Faux Action Girl: Even compared to other examples of this trope, it's ridiculous. Kazemon is probably the only main character Digimon in the series to lose after evolving for the first time. Zephyrmon averts this.
    • Fridge Brilliance: That may be an in-universe reason for her using her Beast Spirit more than the others. Zephyrmon took out her first opponent with one hit and no "must control the beast spirit's power" time.
  • Flight
  • Fragile Speedster
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Italian, in this case.
  • Image Song: "Kaze no Shizuku", which translates to "Wind Drops"
  • Kick Chick: Kazemon yes, Zephyrmon no.
  • Leitmotif: "Kaze no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Wind"
  • Ms. Fanservice: And the first Digimon female main cast character to be so. She's kinda young, but... yeah, she definitely has it going on, especially with how skimpy her Digimon forms' outfits are.
  • Nice Hat
  • Oblivious to Love: Is the object of JP's affections. She doesn't even know.
  • One-Way Visor: As Kazemon.
  • Razor Wind: Zephyrmon's Hurricane Gale attack.
  • Ship Tease / Will They or Won't They?: While she had a few ship teases with JP and Koji, she had the most with Takuya and an episode near the end all but confirms the pairing as canon.
  • The Smurfette Principle
  • Spin Attack: Kazemon's Tempest Twist.
  • Stripperiffic: Both of her forms.
  • Wind is Green: As a secondary coloration for Kazemon only. Completely averted otherwise.
  • Women Are Wiser: While she may be the weakest of the group, she's often more practical, mature and level headed than the guys are.
  • Taking the Bullet: The only reason why Tommy wasn't Brought Down to Normal before her.
  • Winged Humanoid: Both Kazemon and Zephyrmon.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: All of her forms have this to some degree.

Tommy Himi (Himi Tomoki)

Tommy is the youngest member of the group. He is always genuine in his feelings and looks up to Takuya Kanbara as his hero. As the series progresses, Tommy learns to stand up for himself, even fighting his own battles. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientMegatheriummon, Warrior of Ice.

His spirit evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Kumamon (Chakkumon),a beast man digimon. A humanoid polar bear with green armor and a snowball cannon
  • Beast Hybrid: Korikakumon (Blizzarmon), A beast digimon. Resembles a large white yeti with spear-tipped dread-locks and two huge axes
Voiced by: Kumiko Watanabe (JP), Brianne Siddall (EN)

J.P. Shibayama (Shibayama Junpei)

At the start of the series, J.P. shows some jealousy towards Takuya Kanbara, the main character of this series for being Tommy Himi's hero and being able to combine both of his Digimon forms into a more powerful form. He also shows feelings for Zoe Orimoto, the only female of the group. J.P. also seems to have a hidden fear of being alone - despite being constantly surrounded by people when he was in the real world, he felt that he had never really been anyone's real friend. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientBeetlemon, Warrior of Thunder.

His spirit evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Beetlemon (Blitzmon),a cyborg digimon. a large humanoid beetle with electric powers
  • Beast Hybrid: MetalKabuterimon (Bolgmon), A cyborg digimon. A cross between a beetle-shaped mech and an army tank.

    (Spoilers) 

Koichi Kimura (Kimura Kouichi)

Koji's twin brother, who was Separated at Birth from Koji when they were born due to their parents' divorce. Prior to the start of the series, after finding of Koji's existence from his grandmother on her deathbed, he watched Koji in secret to find out more about him, but slowly developed loneliness from being unable to meet with his brother and resentment from the fact Koji's family was more well-off than him and his struggling mother. On the day Koji was summoned to the Digital World, Koichi followed him in secret but failed to follow him and fell down a set of stairs, after which his soul was taken away by Cherubimon and he was brainwashed and turned into Duskmon. He is eventually purified by Koji, receives the purified Spirits of Darkness and a new Digivice after gaining his resolve to fight alongside his brother, and joins the team. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientSphinxmon, Warrior of Darkness.

His spirit evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Lowemon'', a warrior digimon. He resembles a Large man wearing lion-themed black armor.
  • Beast Hybrid: JagerLowemon (KaiserLeomon), A cyborg digimon. A robotic black lion that vaguely resembles SaberLeomon.
Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura (JP), Crispin Freeman (EN)

  • Animal Motifs: Lion.
  • Badass: Lowemon. Lets put it this way, he's basically stronger than either of the Chosen Children's Advance Hybrids, and thats only the human spirit...
  • Badass Boast: As Lowemon when he defeats 2 Phantomon. “Confused evil souls, be buried in darkness and sleep. Let the shadows purify you. Fractal code, digitize!”
  • Berserk Button: As the illusory Cherubimon and IceDevimon found out the hard way: if Koichi has any fighting capability and access to his Spirits, do not hurt Koji in front of him.
  • Casting a Shadow
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It's his freaking element.
  • Dead All Along: After falling down a flight of stairs, Koichi's body became hospitalized and his soul became detached from his body, manifesting in the Koichi we see throughout the series. It's unclear whether Koichi was actually fully dead or whether he was just in a comatose state prior to Koji reviving him at the end of the series, though supplementary materials refer to Koichi as having been "brought back to life".
    • An Astral Projection, Not a Ghost: Since the Digital World runs on Narnia Time, Koichi's body wasn't clinically dead during his time in the Digital World. The doctors were still trying to resuscitate him when the others returned to the human world.
  • Death by Falling Over: Zigzagged.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: He was hospitalized/fell into a coma-like state after chasing after Koji on the day everyone first went to the digital world due to falling down a flight of stairs. Thus, he was a purely digital spirit himself the entire time he was with them. Once the final battle is over, the other chosen children return to the real world and rush to where Koichi is being kept. In a true Crowning Moment of Heartwarming moment Koji is able to revive and reunite with his brother with the others' help.
  • Expy: More or less to Ken. His true evolved forms are a tribute to the Leomon line.
  • Gratuitous German: Every one of his evolution forms.
  • Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Both of his Digimon forms have gold as a secondary color.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • His Name Is...: Koichi's grandmother tells him about Koji on her deathbed.
  • Iconic Outfit: One weirdly done by the merchandise; nearly all supplemental material depicts Koichi wearing his cap, which he hadn't actually worn for the majority of the anime proper (he'd only worn it during the flashbacks of following Koji around, and had lost the hat after falling down the stairs).
  • Image Song: "Oreta Tsubasa de (With Broken Wings)".
    • The Dub gives him "Darkness In My Heart", making him one of, if not the only, dub digimon characters with an Image song!.
  • Leitmotif: "Yami no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Darkness"
  • Long-Lost Relative
  • More than Mind Control: Cherubimon taunts Koichi by informing him that this is how the Corrupted Spirits of Darkness choose their owner; they wouldn't have taken Koichi had he already not been feeling emotions of anger and hatred towards Koji. Koichi responds that he accepts that, but that things have changed and he'll never lose to the darkness again. This leads to Koji's D-Tector giving Koichi his own Digivice and purified Spirits.
  • The Sacred Darkness: Probably one of the best examples of the trope there is, even being able to provide an example for the "corrupt" and the "pure" form of darkness.
  • Sacrificial Lion: His beast spirit (originally) is named KaiserLeomon, keeping with the series tradition.
  • Satellite Character: Effectively this for Koji, as pretty much most of his characterization and interactions involve his relationship with Koji. Interestingly, his presence also turns Koji into this for Koichi for the rest of the series.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: See Koji.
    • His Evolutions are direct (dark themed) parallels of Koji's as well. Stage one is an animal themed warrior, stage two is a robotic version of that animal, and stage three (All There in the Manual) is the first stage wearing the second stage as armor.
  • Sixth Ranger: After his Heel-Face Turn.
  • Spell My Name with an S: his human spirit form: Is it spelled Lowemon? Loewemon? Loweemon? perhaps Löwemon? The Dub adds a whole new dimension to this by renaming his beast spirit as Jager Lowemon.
  • Theme Twin Naming: Koichi and Koji, or "first light" and "second light" respectively.
  • Transformation Sequence: Koichi is the only one of the main cast who lacks a Beast Spirit evolution sequence (all of his instances as JagerLowemon appear as slide evolutions from Lowemon). In addition, his normal spirit evolution sequence differs a bit in form from the others, probably due to having been animated later.
  • Walking Spoiler: Talking about him in any way other than his Duskmon persona is effectively a spoiler for those who haven't gotten to the second half of the series - even his name is a dead giveaway he's Koji's brother.

Voiced by: Rika Fukami (JP), Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (EN)

    Major Villains 

Grumblemon (Grottomon)

A small, ugly gnome like creature. He was the first of the evil Warriors the children meet and also the first to fall. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientVolcamon, Warrior of Earth.

His two evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Grumblemon (Grottomon), an ogre digimon. His default form.
  • Beast Hybrid: Gigasmon, a mineral digimon. He's supposed to be a certain type of mythological giant called a Gigas.
Voiced by: Tomohiro Nishimura (JP), Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

Arbormon

A wooden cyborg digimon. He was one of the Evil Legendary Warriors that fought the Chosen Children. For a time he gave the children trouble with his beast spirit, but was eventually brought down via teamwork and destroyed by Duskmon. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientTroiamon, Warrior of Wood.

His two evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Arbormon, a cyborg digimon. His default form.
  • Beast Hybrid: Petaldramon, a plant digimon. A large living plant that resembles a dragon.
Voiced by: Kenji Nomura (JP), Richard Cansino (EN)

Ranamon

A cute, mermaid-like digimon. She was one of the evil Legendary Warriors that the Chosen Children faced. She devloped an intense hatred of Zoe, borne out of jealousy. Her Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientMermaimon, Warrior of Water.

Her two evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Ranamon, a fairy digimon. Her default form.
  • Beast Hybrid: Calmaramon, an aquatic digimon. An ugly woman sprouting out of an upside down squid.
Voiced by: Haruhi Terada (JP), Peggy O'Neal (EN)

Mercurymon (Mercuremon)

An odd looking humanoid digimon with a mirror for a face and similar mirrors for wrist guards. He was ostensibly the leader of the evil Legendary Warriors, and he was certainly the most effective (outside of Duskmon). He seemed to hold a minor grudge against Takuya, but not to the extent that Ranamon held for Zoe. He supposedly represents steel, but that is a clear case of In Name Only, as most of his attacks involve mirrors. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientWisetmon, Warrior of Steel.

His three evolutions are as follows:
  • Human Hybrid: Mercurymon (Mercuremon), a mutant digimon. His default form.
  • Beast Hybrid: Sakkakumon (Sephirotmon), a mutant digimon. A weird looking creature that resembles a living sephirot. Inside each of his spheres exists a different elemental based dimension.
  • Mega ShadowSeraphimon (BlackSeraphimon), a fallen angel digimon. A demonic Seraphimon.
Voiced by: Yasunori Masutani (JP), Daran Norris (EN)

  • All Your Powers Combined: Sakkakumon has all of the powers of the heroes' Hybrids.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: Mercurymon has a tendency to reflect his enemies' attacks back at them with his mirrored shields. He even managed to defeat Seraphimon this way.
  • Catch and Return: Dark Reflection. It has to be this since the reflected attacks are absorbed by his mirrors before being sent back.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He largely sat back and let Grumblemon, Ranamon and Arbormon do most of the grunt work - Duskmon calls him out on it in one episode - and was planning to betray his master and keep Seraphimon's data to himself. He even manipulates Ranamon as part of his plan, not caring whether she survived or not.
  • Complexity Addiction: His Fatal Flaw. This blog puts it out perfectly.
    ... more focused on the spectacle of his victory than seeking out the most certain path to it. It's showing off, plain and simple...
  • Deadpan Snarker: Going with his hammy dialogue.
  • Evil Genius: Easily the most competent villain in the series.
  • Extra Ore Dinary: This is supposedly his element, but it doesn’t really show. Instead, his attacks are reflections of those of his enemy.
  • Eye Beams: Composed of the heroes' attacks. Only applies to Sakakkumon, since Mercurymon is faceless.
  • Eyeless Face: As Sakkakumon, the sphere with his mouth doesn't have any of his eyes.
  • Genius Loci: As Sakkakumon, he can control his internal environments as well as the corridors between them.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Post-death.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: With Grumblemon, Ranamon and Arbormon.
  • Large Ham: He speaks like he learned English from a Shakespeare play.
  • Luckily My Shield Will Protect Me: See Catch and Return above.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Mega Manning: Sakakkumon, which has the power to record and copy any attacks used inside him.
  • Pocket Dimension: He has ten of them as Sakkakumon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sakakkumon.
  • Smug Snake: He's ultimately not as big a threat as he thinks he is.
  • The Starscream: He kept Seraphimon's fractal code to himself, hoping to exploit its celestial power. But since Cherubimon noticed this, and let him keep it anyway, it is unlikely he would have posed much of a threat even if he hadn't been beaten by Aldamon. The creepy church is Chokhmah, symbolizing divine wisdom, intuitiveness and insight. The church and Seraphimon's presence fit into this picture.
  • Troll: He seems to enjoy taunting Ranamon.
  • Xanatos Gambit: At one point he trapped the Chosen Children inside his beast spirit form while smaller copies of himself fought them directly. Defeating these copies made his beast spirit immune to the attacks used to defeat them so it didn't matter to him whether he won or lost. It goes wrong when they start mixing attacks which he had never seen. This oversight falls under the 'all 'reasonable outcomes' variant because not even the chosen children knew they could do this at the time.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one as Sakkakumon after he finds the Digidestined combined attacks can hurt him, and makes some vain attempts at boasting that he'll still win despite being scarred stiff. Takuya even lampshades this calling his bluff.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: This was added in the dub; for example, he addresses others as "thee" and "thou", and refers to Ranamon as "m'lady". It fits pretty well with his overly dramatic personality, actually.

Duskmon

A mysterious evil Legendary Warrior and the most powerful servant of Cherubimon, holding the Spirits of Darkness. Extremely powerful, and nearly managed to obliterate the kids, forcing everyone to reconsider their strategy and causing Takuya to heavily consider bailing out before he regains his resolve. Seems to have taken upon himself a rivalry with Koji, as Koji wields the spirits of Light, his direct opposite. His Spirits are the corrupted reincarnations of AncientSphinxmon, Warrior of Darkness.

There's more to Duskmon than it seems, however: unlike the other evil Legendary Warriors and like the DigiDestined, he's actually the Digimon form of another human child: Koichi Kimura, Koji's twin brother (see entry above), who inadvertently followed Koji to the Digital World and ended up brainwashed to lose his memories as a human and fight for Cherubimon. This causes problems for him, because his slowly surfacing memories instigated by Koji's presence begin to eat away at his ability to fight, until he is finally dispatched and reverted to his human form.

His evolutions are as follows:
  • Corrupted Human Hybrid Duskmon, a demon man digimon. Resembles a large man wearing vaguely draconic skeletal armor covered in eyes.
  • Corrupted Beast Hybrid Velgemon (Velgmon), a giant bird digimon. A giant monstrous bird with draconic features and a third eye.
Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura (JP), Crispin Freeman (EN)

Cherubimon

One of the Three Great Angels of the Digital World. In times passed, he was a good digimon that helped keep the peace. But now he is a corrupted monster that will stop at nothing to take over the entire digital world. Late in the series, he's revived as Lopmon.

Voiced by: Ryūzaburō Ōtomo (JP), Paul St Peter (EN)

Crusadermon (LordKnightmon)

"We are supporters of his right to become this world's supreme ruler. We serve Lord Lucemon by collecting fractal code."

An effeminate Holy Knight digimon. Crusadermon was one of the two Royal Knights that were hired by Lucemon to destroy all of the digital world. Crusadermon was often matched off in a fight with MagnaGarurumon, and was the first of the two knights to start having trouble, being the weaker of the two.
Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (JP), Melodee Spevack (EN)

Dynasmon

"We have come to fulfill Lucemon's destiny as his emissaries of evil."

Dynasmon is a draconic Holy Knight Digimon. He was one of the two Royal Knights hired by Lucemon to gather all of the digital world's data. He usually squared off against EmperorGreymon, and being by far the stronger of the two knights, was the last to start having trouble with the Chosen Children. He was also the most devoted to Lucemon's cause. He is thematically based off of the Wyvern.
Voiced by: Kenta Miyake (JP), Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

Lucemon

"I am your ordained ruler with absolute power over your very existence. You will serve me as you were born to do. You will give me my every desire, even yourself."
An angel digimon that once came down to the Digital World to bring peace to it due to a war between the beast and human type digimon. He eventually grew proud and fell off the narrow path and became a great evil that the Ten Legendary Warriors sealed away. He is eventually released by the Royal Knights and becomes the final boss of the show, so to speak.

His forms are as follows
  • Rookie: Lucemon, his default form. A small cute looking boy with 12 angel wings.
  • Ultimate: Chaos Mode (Falldown Mode), an adult Lucemon with dark armor; half of his wings have taken on a demonic look.
  • Mega: Shadowlord Mode (Satan mode), a giant demonic dragon that holds the Gehenna (hell) sphere in its hands.
  • Mega: Lucemon Larva, resembles a cross between a larva, a cocoon, and an embryo with twelve golden wings.
Voiced by: Mona Marshall (EN), Kumiko Nishihara (JP), Ryusei Nakao (JP, Falldown and Satan modes)

  • Back from the Dead: The revival of Ornismon is one of central plots of the filmnote  and Murmukusmon's Evil Plan. He succeeds. However, he doesn't get to live long enough to exact his goal of ruling the Digital world due to the subsequent resurrection of Ancientgreymon and Ancientgarurumon.

  • Gender Bender: Murmukusmon can slide evolve between the feminine appearing Darcmon and more masculine Hippogriffomon.
  • Jeanne d'Archétype: Darcmon is named after Joan D'Arc and acts as a leader for the Human type Digimon, but beyond that has little else in common.
  • Manipulative Bastard: There's a reason it is singular, rather than plural.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Murmukusmon is named for Murmur who is mentioned in the Ars Goetia
  • Playing Both Sides: Murmukusmon pits the factions against each other so that he can absorb the data of fallen combatants as well as distract them as he worked on resurrecting Ornismon.
