    Digimon Emperor 

Digimon Emperor (Digimon Kaiser)

"Of course, I am the only perfect human being."

A mysterious, human villain (a first for the series) who's taken over the Digital World and is causing random destruction and terror, using Dark Spires to prevent evolution and Dark Rings to mind-control Digimon.

Voiced by: Romi Park (JP), Derek Stephen Prince (EN), Pilar Domínguez (Spain), Benjamín Rivera (Latin America)

  • A God Am I: His arrogance is so vast he believes himself to be the god-emperor of the whole digital world. He even has a "Playing God by Creating Life" hubris in Kimeramon.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He decided to go into a Whirlpool and encounters Devimon, who is implied to be from the first series, and absorbs his data for his Kimeramon project in spite of being warned of the consequences. Then he starts hearing voices and eventually sees Kimeramon go berserk. Oops.
  • Can't Take Criticism: His response to TK dishing out a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to him is to call TK a nobody and crack him across the face with a whip.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Why bother hiding that you are a dictator of a world?
  • Chuunibyou: An early example of this character type in anime. As a teenager role playing an evil dictator, he really milks the villain role for all it's worth. In particular, his creation of Kimeramon is infamous in the fandom for resembling a cheap DeviantArt OC knockoff.
  • Cloak of Defense: The Emperor once used his cape to deflect one of Pegasusmon's attacks.
  • Combat Pragmatist: In his saner moments, he has done some rather simple yet effective strategies. Sometimes, he would use traps to disarm the children from their Digivices to prevent evolution and improved his technology just so he can use an Ultimate on them. There were also times he could have won when he wasn't screwing around.
  • The Cracker: Using his programming skills to enslave and conquer.
  • Dark Is Evil: Wielded a black Digivice in 02 though it changed to a lighter shade once he made his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: The main antagonist for the first 21 episodes.
  • Do with Him as You Will: Ken clears MegaSeadramon for this, because the heroes are trapped underwater and running out of air. He's too busy creating Kimeramon by this point to care, anyway.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Other than Wormmon calling him by name, one of the first hallmarks that Ken is actually the Emperor is that he has this. Goes away once he makes his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Evil Is Hammy: In the dub, the Emperor is so over the top it's hilarious. The dub writers seemed to have fun writing for him:
    Wormmon: You sure have changed, Master. You used to love trying to destroy the DigiDestined. It was your favourite thing to do, next to putting holes in childrens' Christmas stockings.
    Digimon Emperor: Bah, Humbug!
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Harvesting Devimon's data to use in Kimeramon's creation was never going to end well for him.
  • Gratuitous German: In Japanese. While exotic sounding in English, it doesn't carry the menacing connotation as "Emperor" in that language.
  • Hacker Cave: The dark, almost featureless room with all the screens floating in space.
  • Heel Realization: He undergoes one once the DigiDestined explain to him that the Digital World isn't a game, and the Digimon are real, sentient beings.
  • High Collar of Doom: His new look for Digimon Adventure tri. has him sporting one of these.
  • Hikikomori: On the surface — to his parents, at least.
  • Hypno Trinket: The dark rings, which can control any Digimon up to a Champion level. He eventually developed the dark spiral to control Ultimate level digimon.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: It comes out as early as episode nine that his haughtiness is actually a defense mechanism he uses against a crippling lack of self-esteem.
  • Jerkass: He has sometimes had his own slaves fight each other to near-death. Why? For entertainment.
  • Karma Houdini: The Digimon Emperor Ken never sees any real punishment for any of his crimes, aside from most of the children not trusting him for a while afterward. Deconstructed later; Ken feels extremely guilty about this, and his greatest desire is to be punished for what he's done.
  • Kick the Dog: To Wormmon, figuratively and literally.
  • Kneel Before Zod: As seen in Sadistic Choice.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Suffers this the minute he realizes the Digital World is not a game as he believed and the Digimon are just as real as he is.
  • Obliviously Evil: Zigzagged. He's a Card-Carrying Villain, but he was unaware the Digimon were real, sentient creatures and figured it was just a game.
  • Ominous Multiple Screens: Part of his headquarters, they monitor all over his territory.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Any digimon under the control of a dark ring or dark spiral will have red eyes as a result.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Davis's red.
  • Revealing Injury: How the DigiDestined realize his true identity. Davis played against Ken in a soccer match, during which he accidentally injured his leg. During a later confrontation, Davis sees the Emperor with the same cut and puts two and two together.
  • Sadistic Choice: Tries once to force Davis to choose which of his captured friends should be eaten by a huge Digimon. He resorts to offering himself as a sacrificial lamb since he can't choose. Then it's all revealed to be a trap.
  • Sanity Slippage: Starts losing it during the Chimeramon arc although he was insane from the first episode.
  • Silent Antagonist: Doesn't speak once during part II of Digimon Adventure tri.. There's a reason for that.
  • Slasher Smile: Makes some pretty unnerving expressions throughout Tri, especially when he kidnaps Meicoomon. If it's not this, it's either an emotionless frown or a Psychotic Smirk. None is particularly pleasant. The fact that he's a fake imitation is probably why he pulls so many of these.
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Averted; comparing the Kaiser to the threat that created him, Millenniumon, is just not fair.
  • Squishy Wizard: One has to wonder why the kids don't target him first given he is a human being. This is why he is never far from his slaves.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Of Neo Saiba from the V-Tamer manga.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Given who he is, being a dictator at such an age.
  • Tempting Fate: He was warned countless times before entering the Dark Whirlpool that something bad was waiting for him, and when Devimon asked him if he can handle the power of darkness he laughs it off and continues on with the additon. This proves to be his downfall when Kimeramon snaps due to the influence of his final part.
  • That Man Is Dead: He repeatedly blows his stack whenever Wormmon refers to him by his true name:
    Digimon Emperor: My name is the Digimon Emperor!
  • Unwitting Pawn: Overtime, it was shown he was really the tool to some other Digimon.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: A mix of angst, guilt, his parents' high expectations and a seed of pure evil turned a good natured kid into a raving psychotic.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: Taken to a pretty dangerous extreme. While he treats Digimon absolutely horribly, it's later revealed it's because he thought the Digital World was just a game, and there's nothing wrong with playing the bad guy. When confronted to the fact that it's real with no more possibility of escape or denial, he has a Heel Realization.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: He's a famous celebrity in the human world because of academic and intellectual accomplishments.


Dragomon (Dagomon)

"Beware, child. Our master can sense your power too. And he will come for you."

A Lovecraft-inspired Ultimate-level Digimon, and the apparent ruler of the Dark Ocean and its mysterious inhabitants. He only appears briefly in one episode, in which his followers (who had been shackled with Dark Spirals) bring Kari to their world, although she later escapes with T.K., Gatomon, and Patamon's help. The Dark Ocean creatures warn Kari that their master can sense her power and will come for her. He never did, (although it's possible that he was pulling the strings offscreen in the episode "Opposites Attract").

  • Adaptational Badass: Played straight and inverted. Dagomon is a full-blown Dimension Lord whereas Dagon and Cthulhu are (in the Mythos) considerably more limited in their portrayed scopes. On the other hand, Dagomon hasn't done jack.
  • Adapted Out: Dagomon and his minions are excised from the manga adaptation.
  • Affably Evil: His servants weren't unpleasant sorts, seeking to grant Kari the position of their queen, which in their mindsets was considerably more important than it was to Kari. One of them even manages a mild joke. When it's made clear that Angewomon will have none of that, they drop the matter, retreating into the Dark Ocean. Whether Dagomon himself qualifies for the Affably bit or the Evil bit is unknown, given his lack of screentime.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Has literally no villainous deeds to his name. The same cannot be said for his Deep One minions-slash-worshippers, though.
  • Bad Boss: Implied in the dub where his followers want Kari to help overthrow him and become queen in his place, unless these followers were Starscreams.
  • Bowdlerized: In the dub, his servants wanted Kari to help them defeat him, while in the original they wanted Kari to mate with them.
  • Chained by Fashion: Surprisingly, there seem to be Holy Rings shackling him.
  • The Corrupter: Probably unintentionally. Ken's Digivice was corrupted by being exposed to the waters of the Dark Ocean.
  • Cthulhumanoid: Naturally, though this may be the first time the trope is applied more than once - his eyed arm shares the look of his face.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His Deep One servants are visually presented as shadowy humanoids. Yet, nothing they say or do during their screentime is with malicious intent. Part of this stems from their seeming Blue-and-Orange Morality, as while they did summon Kari the preteen for... certain purposes, the idea that she might refuse was apparently a foreign concept to them; once they do get the hint, they drop it.
  • Dark World: The Dark Ocean. Doubles as Dimension Lord.
  • Did You Just Romance Cthulhu?: Averted, as a pack of Deep Ones summoned Kari to be their bride and mother of their offspring, something she was understandably opposed to. Thankfully toned down in the dub where they only wanted her as their queen.
  • Dimension Lord: The Dark Ocean. Doubles as Dark World.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A traditional-verging-on-generic example. He's an Expy of Cthulhu and Dagon.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: He appears to have a pair on one of his shoulders.
  • Facial Markings: A red etching.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: A pair of orange, bat-like wings. It's unclear whether these are of the good, evil or otherwise persuasions.
  • The Magnificent: Sinful Priest of the Ocean Floor, Depraved Monk of the Deep, and The Dark Undersea Master.
  • Monster of the Week: Despite his potential, he was only focused on in a horror-themed oneshot episode. His Dark Ocean is focused on more than him.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Caused by a Dub Induced Plothole. There is nothing remotely draconic about him (except perhaps his wings).
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His name is only said in the original title. He is only ever called the Dark Undersea Master, and the one character in refering to him by word is Demon when recognizing the Dark Ocean as his.
  • Orange/Blue Contrast: His blue body, and orange wings.
  • Prongs of Poseidon: Forbidden Trident, which is oceanic due to him being a Sea Monster.
  • Sea Monster: Par for the course for a (partial, in this case) Cthulhu expy.
  • Shout-Out: A dual one to the Cthulhu Mythos - his appearance is derived from Cthulhu, while everything else about him is derived from Father Dagon.
  • Sinister Minister: Going by his titles. It furthers the allusion to Cthulhu, as he was the high priest to the Greater Scope Villains of the Mythos.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: All we see of him.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: The Deep Ones
  • 13 Is Unlucky: His episode number. The bad luck associated with the number is reflected in the introduction of the Dark Ocean, which would go on to be a source of woes for the DigiDestined for the rest of the series and beyond.
  • Too Many Belts: Par for the franchise.
  • The Unseen: Only seen in shadows and mist near the end of episode 13, and is only referenced to afterwards, rather then shown.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: Implied to have this towards both Kari, and to a lesser way, Ken. As Kari is ominously warned by The Deep Ones in the English Dub, Dagomon has a vested interest in her power. And while he doesn’t directly appears in the series itself outside his Sinister Silhouettes, the fact that Kari has a seemingly unexplained connection with The Dark Ocean (as seen in both "Opposites Attract" and “Invasion of the Daemon Corps”) does hint that said interest has not completely vanished. With Ken, the fact that not only are the waters of The Dark Ocean served as The Corrupter for Ken’s Digivice and that he has an even more blatant type of psychic connection towards The Dark Ocean also hints that the boy also caught Dagomon’s eye for one reason or another. Maybe.


Kimeramon (Chimairamon)

"Kimeramon is my ultimate creation. I combined the most powerful parts of other Digimon to form this unstoppable fighting creature. His Heat Viper attack will melt my enemies into oblivion."

An abhorrent beast created by the Digimon Emperor using data copied from close to a dozen other Digimon. An Ultimate, he was going to be Ken's partner in his complete subjugation of the Digital World, but unfortunately for him, Kimeramon grew uncontrollable, and became just as big a threat to him as everyone else. It was only through Wormmon sacrificing himself to give Magnamon a boost in power that Kimeramon was completely annihilated by Magna Explosion.

Voiced by: Tom Wyner (EN), Eugenio Barona (Spain)

  • All Your Powers Combined: Almost every single family of Digimon-kind is represented here. Virus Busters (Angemon), Nightmare Soldiers (Devimon, Skull-Greymon), Jungle Troopers (Kabuterimon, Kuwagamon), Dragon's Roar (Greymon, Monochromon), Nature Spirits (Garurumon), Wind Guardians (Airdramon), and Metal Empire (Metal Greymon). No Deep Savers, mind you. Of course, submarine capabilities is the last thing Kimeramon would need.
  • Bad Boss: He uncaringly vaporizes some Bakemon who were fighting alongside him with a Heat Viper.
  • The Berserker: "He doesn't care who he hits! He's totally out of control!"
  • Breath Weapon: Heat Viper unleashes a stream of green flames.
  • Convection Schmonvection: Averted. His attack is so hot that just being in the vicinity of it knocks back and damages Digimon.
  • Dynamic Entry: Introduces itself smashing through the walls and ceiling of the Digimon Emperor's own headquarters.
  • Evil Redhead: You would expect that Chimeramon would inherit MetalGreymon's missile launcher, head armour or giant claw (or even its wings if only organic parts were going to be used)... Nope, the red hair is everything it's getting.
  • Flight: Due to having two pairs of wings (one from Angemon, and one from Airdramon), Chimeramon is able to fly.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When he's first unleashed against the DigiDestined, they glow red.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: A set of both. Angemon's are good, Airdramon's are evil.
  • Hybrid Monster: Including:
  • The Juggernaut: Only Magnamon was able to faze Kimeramon, and even he technically lost in their fight, experiencing a Heroic RRoD that undoubtedly would have led to his destruction had Wormmon not sacrificed himself to give Magnamon the chance to use an attack that ended up turning him back into DemiVeeMon (so it's a good thing it worked).
  • Kaiju: Kimeramon is a colossus. Nobody does any climbing, though.
  • Killed Off for Real: Given the circumstances of his creation its a bit doubtful that he'd reincarnate like any other Digimon. Though considering it's part of Millenniumon, it may have lived on in spirit.
  • Legacy Character: Millenniumon was created by the fusion of a Kimeramon and a Machinedramon, and the Dark Spore he infected Ken with may have influenced him into creating another Kimeramon.
  • Light Is Not Good: His attribute is Data, probably because the Data and Vaccine types that compose him outnumber the Virus ones.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Created by the Digimon Kaiser through splicing the data of the Digimon he considered to be the most powerful, with a hint of Devimon's code for good measure.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: It has four arms. Devimon's are part of the reason why Chimeramon is so malicious.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: In-universe this seems to be Ken's design concept - take the best parts of the coolest and most powerful Digimon to create the ultimate fighting machine. He even adds MetalGreymon's hair for no apparent reason other than it looks good. This is especially funny because MetalGreymon is the most powerful Digimon he used along with SkullGreymon (with the possible exception of Devimon, who, being a Champion-level, we don't know how he would fare in a battle against an Ultimate, but is obviously much more powerful than most other Champion-levels). He didn't pick MetalGreymon's trident-hook-robotic arm, he didn't pick his breastplate nuke, he didn't pick his metallic helmet, he didn't pick his giant wings, no, he went with the only part in his body that seems to serve no function at all other than looking cool, though it could have something to do with heat dispersal.
  • Oh, Crap!: The look on his face as he's being vaporized by Magna Explosion is the only moment when it displays fear.
  • Retcon: Kimeramon as originally conceived was an Ultimate (Mega) level, on equal power with, say, Machinedramon (see below). Possibly because the Card Game's restrictions on Armor evolving reduced Magnamon to a Champion equivalent, Kimeramon was bumped down to Perfect (Eng: Ultimate) to put him closer to Magnamon's abilities. He has not recovered since.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: Before his actual debut, he made a few apperances as a blacked out figure on monitors.
  • Tattooed Crook: The skull tattoo and belts on its arms are a holdover from Devimon.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Courtesy of Devimon's data making him malevolent and uncontrollable.
  • The Voiceless: The only time he actually speaks is when he's announcing Heat Viper. In the Japanese version, he never speaks a word, other than laughing once (with a voice sounding like a hybrid of Ken and Devimon's voices).
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Unlike in almost every other case, the DigiDestined have no qualms about destroying him. It's probably because he was put together by Ken and isn't a "true" Digimon.

    Arukenimon & Mummymon 

Arukenimon (Archnemon) & Mummymon

After the Digimon Emperor's defeat, these two mysterious villains start appearing in the Digital World and causing trouble. Both are humanoid, although Arukenimon resembles a spider and Mummymon, well, a mummy. Arukenimon has the power to turn the remaining Dark Spires into evil Digimon, but otherwise they're not really that powerful, and tend to hide from the Chosen Children.

Arukenimon is voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (JP), Mari Devon (EN), Raquel Martín (Spain), Mónica Manjarrez (Latin America)
Mummymon is voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Kirk Thornton (EN), Rafael Calvo (Spain), Roberto Mendiola (Latin America)

Tropes for Both:

  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Both of them suffer horrible fates. After Arukenimon returns him to power, MaloMyotismon tortures her to death. Her partner Mummymon doesn't fare much better. After he tries to avenge her death, MaloMyotismon incinerates him. Even our heroes are horrified by this.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Archnemon is impaled and mutilated by BelialVandemon, though we only see her screaming in pain. Mummymon is covered in acid and melts on-screen though.
  • Joker Immunity: Given that the DigiDestined gained the propensity to curb stomp them not long after their debuts, they lasted very long especially given the significant threat they posed. The two made sure they wouldn't confront the DigiDestined directly. Hey, they gotta get Genre Savvy sooner or later.
  • Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: Trying to destroy the universe (by destroying the holy stones), despite being counter-intuitive to their plans.


"This is fun. Nothing quite relaxes me like scaring kids."

  • All Women Love Shoes: In the dub version of episode 36, she's eager to buy a new pair of sandals in the Digital World's Chinatown.
  • Antagonist Title: There is an episode named after her, "Arukenimon's Tangled Web", where her true form is displayed for the first time.
  • Dark Chick: Harsh even to her own teammates like Mummymon. She's also the defacto leader of her Quirky Miniboss Squad, and can manipulate others (particularly other insect types) to her will.
  • Dub-Induced Plot Hole: The DigiDestined somehow know her name before she is revealed to be a Digimon (she signs a mail as just "Arukeni", and they for some reason know instantly she is the author).
  • Evil Plan: "Alright, so now you know. Big deal. Our plan was a simple one. Build as many Control Spires as possible, and destroy the balance of the Digital World once and for all. You got a problem? So sue me."
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Fake Ultimate Villain, in her case. She initially took all the credit for manipulating Ken into doing everything he did as the Digimon Emperor, though it would later turn out she was just the lackey of Oikawa, who in turn was being manipulated by Myotismon.
  • For the Evulz: She can't resist trolling the DigiDestined.
    Destroy that bridge. It offends me.
  • Harmless Electrocution: T.K. and Kari shock her with mangled wires in the Giga House.
  • Ice Queen: She is quite aloof, especially towards her ally.
  • I Lied:
    Ken: We made a deal, but you double crossed me!
    Arukenimon: Sorry, it's a bad habit of mine.
  • It's Personal: "What's this, a split end? How did this happen? Intolerable. That's enough. Now it's personal."
  • Magic Music: She once used a flute to control insect and arachnid Digimon, including Stingmon and Digmon.
  • Mook Maker: She can use her hair to turn the Control Spires that Ken made into fake Digimon. They're pretty powerful as well, but essentially mindless monsters completely devoted to whatever she orders them to do (though BlackWarGreymon somehow got a mind of his own). However, because of this, the DigiDestined have no moral qualms about destroying them because they're not sentient or even alive.
  • Mystical White Hair: It makes monsters by being infused into the dark towers.
  • The Reveal: The mysterious long-haired woman who suddenly shows up once the Kaiser pulls a Heel–Face Turn? She is a Digimon.
  • Shower of Angst: After being soundly beaten by the DigiDestined at the Giga House, she is shown sulking (fully dressed) in an overflowing bathtub.
  • Think Happy Thoughts: "Those DigiBrats make me so tense! I've got to try and relax. Maybe I should think happy thoughts. Let's see; evil spells, crushing my enemies, more Control Spires, less DigiDestined. Oh, I can't keep those kids out of my head!"
  • White Hair, Black Heart: She has white hair, and is evil.
  • Wicked Witch: Her human form looks like one, but don't tell her that.
    "How dare you talk about me like I'm some kind of witch! I dress this way to make a fashion statement!"


"Just think of me as a well wrapped present!"

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Despite them being partners, his affections for Arukenimon only infuriate her and she makes her lack of interest and annoyance with him clear as possible.
  • Admiring the Abomination: (on Imperialdramon) "You have to admit, that's rather impressive."
  • Affably Evil: Can be surprisingly polite, to fit with his gentleman-like attire.
  • The Alleged Car:
    Arukenimon: What's the matter?
    Mummymon: I don't know. It can't be the radiator, I just put water in it five years ago.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!:
    Mummymon: (while fleeing) Hey, look at the sales prices on those jackets!
    Oikawa: Would you be quiet!?
  • Bald of Evil: Never shown, as he has headwear in both his forms, but he seems to have no hair.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Villainous version. His first apparition is to save a defeated Arukenimon and take her to safety.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: One second, a bumbling fool. The next second, a total asskicker who can tear three Champion-level Digimon apart.
  • Cyclops: Has only one eye. His Digimon form has the other covered, while his humanoid form has nothing on that side of his face.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: He's head over heels for Arukenimon, and can't get it into his head that she doesn't like him the same way.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Arukenimon knocks him around and mocks him a lot, though he doesn't mind.
    "Every time she treats me like that... I feel closer and closer to her!"
  • Drives Like Crazy: Which annoys Oikawa greatly. Actually, it is justified most of the time for having to evade enemies and take routes to fly away.
  • Evil Cripple: His human form has a cane, while he wears leg braces as a Digimon.
  • Eyepatch of Power: His bandages form a makeshift one.
  • Forbidden Fruit:
    Arukenimon: (reading a sign) Drinking this soup is strictly forbidden, and you don't want to know the consequences.
    Mummymon: That's baloney! It makes me want to have some of it even more!
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy:
    Paildramon: Do you even know what the word "aim" means?
  • I'm Melting!: He is dissolved alive by Belialvamdemon's Melting Blood.
  • Mad Love: He's not particularly psychotic, but he refuses to get the message that his love is unrequited.
  • Mummy: What, the name didn't give it away?
  • One Head Taller: He towers over Arukenimon, who is pretty tall herself. The difference is less noticable when they're in Digimon form, however.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: While Arukenimon's human form is fine and believable in every detail, Mummymon's form is rather just a clothing disguise for his creepily inhuman Digimon form.
  • Pointy Ears: In Digimon form (in human form, he doesn't seem to have ears at all).
  • Quizzical Tilt: His neck looks broken, tilting to the side at all times.
  • Supernatural Angst: "I can't help but remember that conversation with BlackWarGreymon. He's a Digimon, and Oikawa's a human, so what are we supposed to be? Chopped liver, virtual viruses, horror film wannabees? I'm telling you my dear, this is giving me a vast feeling of inferiority!"
  • Talking in Your Sleep: "No, my teddy bear, mine. I already told you, you can't have it..."
  • This Is Unforgivable!: After MaloMyotismon's brutal torture and murder of his love, Arukenimon, right in front of him, he becomes both heartbroken and PISSED OFF at the same time, and he lets him know of this in no uncertain terms.
    Mummymon: You don't scare me! You've taken away my Arukenimon, and now I'm going to make you pay for what you did to her!
    MaloMyotismon: Hah. What do you plan to do, wrap me in another useless Snake Bandage? You scare me even less than these DigiDestined fools from the other world.
    Mummymon: Then I will teach you to fear me!!
  • Tongue Trauma: Being jumped on (just as he's about to slurp some soup) by Digitamamon and Tapirmon causes him to bite his tongue - and considering how sharp his teeth are... yeah.
  • You Need a Breath Mint:
    Arukenimon: Anyone ever tell you you have bad breath?
    Mummymon: Why? That's impossible. I think I brushed my teeth at least a year ago.

    Yukio Oikawa 

Yukio Oikawa

"I have to harvest all the Dark Spores in order for me to fulfill my deepest desire. I've always wanted to go to the Digital World."

Who'd have thunk there's not one but two human villains in this season? As a child, he and his best friend, Cody's father, made contact with the Digital World through their video games. After Cody's father died, Oikawa became obsessed with visiting the Digital World of their dreams, making him easy prey for Myotismon's wayward data to manipulate in order to resurrect himself.

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Jamieson Price (EN), Francisco Andrés Valdivia (Spain), Roberto Mendiola (Latin America)

  • Alas, Poor Villain: A Tragic Villain who desperately longed to enter the Digital World after the death of his Only Friend. Because of his obsession, he ends up becoming the Unwitting Pawn of an evil Digimon and caused great damages to the Digital World. He dies right after seeing the Digital World and meeting his partner for the first time, using the last of his strength to restore the Digital World.
  • Angst: He says things like "Happiness is an illusion. Life's ugly and cruel." and "You're perfectly right about being alone. We're both doomed to remain this way forever. There isn't any other choice." without a hint of irony. Justified in that he's still shattered that his childhood friend died before they could fulfill their boyhood dream.
  • Antagonist Title: "Oikawa's Shame".
  • Anti-Villain: Of the Tragic Villain variety, once his backstory is revealed.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: His spirit takes the form of a swarm of butterflies that flies over the Digital World.
  • Badass Longcoat: A long and purple one. It really adds to his creepy nature.
  • Big Bad: Is the man behind the events of the series because Myotismon compelled him to be.
  • Brains Evil, Brawn Good: An intelectual and physically unimpressive villain in a series where problems are solved with digital attacks. However, he has his own Digimon cronies for whenever he needs muscle.
  • Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: When he died, he uses the imagination powers in Dream Dimension to turn his own dying body into butterflies who restore the Digital World.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Subverted. His voice in both versions is quite deep, but he was never truly a bad guy.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Against Daemon. Averted in the manga adaptation, which portrays them as in cahoots.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Myotismon's spirit exiting his body through the mouth fatally injures him, a scene which was depicted extremely painfully and can still be difficult to watch. He lives for a bit longer after, though, and he redeems himself by using the power of the alternate dimension to turn himself into pure energy that will restore and guard the Digital World.
  • Freudian Excuse: He was already a withdrawn person, but at least he had Cody's father to hang out with. When he died, he was distraught and very lonely and began to obsess on going to the Digital World which they discovered, by any means. Even allowing a malevolent Digimon to take over his body.
  • Friendless Background: Just Hiroki. Once he died, Oikawa went off the deep end.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Oikawa went from a depressed young child who lost his best friend to a Manipulative Bastard who comes so very close to accomplishing his objective at the cost of everything.
  • Good Costume Switch: After being abandoned by Myotismon he loses his deathly appearance.
  • Hand Blast: Used to kill BlackWarGreymon. It's also a hint that there is more to Oikawa than it seems.
  • Hearing Voices: He hallucinates being tormented by Arukenimon, Mummymon and BlackWarGreymon ("We represent the essence of your ugliness").
  • Hope Spot: He's almost swayed by Cody's grandfather, but Myotismon asserts control and prevents him.
  • Kick the Dog: "You would be better off improving your mind rather than wasting time with all this saving the world nonsense. You see where it got your father!"
  • Killed Off for Real: The only major human character in the first two series to die on-screen and never be brought back to life.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Once Oikawa enters the scene, the series becomes much more serious.
  • Living Bodysuit: For Myotismon.
  • Looks Like Cesare: One would be forgiven for thinking his pale skin, sallow face and gaunt features are a result of Myotismon possessing him, but he really does just look like that.
  • The Man Behind the Monsters: He created Arukenimon and Mummymon by somehow combining his human DNA with digimon code. He is by extension responsible for creating the black spire digimon.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Was responsible for orchestrating most of the events from 02, starting with him sending Ken the email that resulted in him becoming the Digimon Emperor. Although later it's revealed that he himself was being manipulated by Myotismon.
  • More Than Mind Control: His preferred methods.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike all the villains until that point in the series, he seemed to be a common human. However, his physical attributes are distinctively creepy compared to the rest of human characters.
  • Obviously Evil: Again, subverted. While we later find out he wasn't entirely acting on his own nature, you'd never guess that he was really a good guy, what with the pale complexion, sunken eyes and spooky voice.
  • One Degree of Separation: The man possessed by Myotismon was obsessed with the Digital World, knew both Ken and Cody's fathers, and briefly worked with Matt and T.K.'s mother.
  • Redemption Equals Death: While he's mortally wounded, he sacrifices himself to fix the effects of MaloMyotismon's rampage in the Digital World.
  • Take Over the World: "My plan is working perfectly. Soon I will be powerful enough to destroy those DigiDestined once and for all, and take my rightful place as ruler of the Digital World!" However, that was probably Myotismon talking.
  • Tragic Villain: All he really wanted was to reach the Digital World and he seems genuinely happy when he and the Dark Spore children seemingly open a portal there. Shame he was being manipulated by Myotismon, who likely gave him bad information.
  • The Unfought: Mostly because he is human. His death comes as a result of Myotismon forcing its way out of his body after parasiting it for years.
  • We Wait: "Excellent. With the spores implanted, we just have to wait. In time, they'll bloom inside the children."
  • World-Healing Wave: Lets loose one of these with his dying breath, converting himself into energy and undoing the damage MaloMyotismon had caused to the Digital World. More justifed than most since he used a world already said to be capable of making your dreams become a reality to make it happen.
  • Younger Than They Look: Is in his early thirties, but looks about 10 years older.
  • You're Insane!: From Ken: "You want my opinion? You're as mad as they come."
    • "It's been a long time, but I remember you were a good friend of Hiroki's. You never had many friends, and I always thought you were a bit of an odd duck, but I never imagined that you'd go completely mad." (Chikara Hida)



An exceedingly powerful Digimon that has a dominant hand in the Adventure continuity and has some presence in the world of Digimon Tamers. Ironically, it's never seen in any of the actual shows (save for a brief cameo in "Invasion of the Daemon Corps") but he created the Dark Spores and corrupted Ken with them, triggering Ken's Start of Darkness.

His alternate forms are as follows:

  • Kimeramon and Machinedramon: The two Digimon (a Hybrid Monster and a Mix-and-Match Man, respectively) whose fusion created him. Their origins are unknown although it's heavily implied the Machinedramon was the famous one from Digimon Adventure.
  • MoonMillenniumon: Basically his soul given form as a Digimon, it is a two-headed serpentine creature sealed within a crystal.
  • ZeedMillenniumon: His ultimate form, a two-headed entity sealed within power-supressing fractal code, and whose lower half is crystal.

  • All There in the Manual: His own origin story and how it ties into the 02; he self-destructed after Ken and Ryo Akiyama (yes, THAT one) defeated him in the Wonderswan games, scattering the Dark Spores everywhere and implanting Ken with one.
  • The Cameo: Only appears in a literal blink-and-you'll-miss-it flashback from episode 43.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Somewhat of a meta-example, as he is responsible for quite possibly the greatest known Continuity Snarl that the Digimon franchise has to offer.
  • Enemy Summoner: The VR Digimon. They were created by ZeedMillenniumon to defeat Ryo. The only difference between them and normal Digimon is that they have red eyes. They were controlled by dark clones of Tai, Davis and Takato. Just guess who their partners were?
  • Fusion Dance: Twice.
    • Millenniumon was created when a dying Kimeramon fused with a dying Machinedramon into a single entity.
    • ZeedMillenniumon met his supposed end when Monodramon forced a DNA Digivolution between them, the result being a DigiEgg. But in a way, Millenniumon's true desire of being Ryo's partner became a reality as his data enabled Monodramon to take on the form of Cyberdramon (this is the reason for Cyberdramon's fierce temperament).
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Responsible for almost everything that goes wrong in 02 but only shows up for a three second cameo. (He figures more prominently in the Wonderswan games and the Digimon Battle Spirit game).
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He is Ryo's true Digimon partner and technically the source of all Ryo's powers... at least that's what he claims in the throes of madness so it's anyone's game.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Even by normal Digimon standards, he's made up of more than two dozen digimon who themselves are Mix-and-Match Critters in the first place. This combination of data leading to a freak mutation is a popular theory for why he is so absurdly powerful.
  • My Own Grampa: It's heavily implied he's responsible for his own creation. In Tag Tamers, he implants a dark spore in Ken during his defeat. It's influence caused Ken to become the Digimon Kaiser and proceed to abuse the Digital World, and later successfully create Kimeramon, a fusion component of Millenniumon. Millenniumon is also responsible for the release of Apocalymon from beyond the Wall of Fire, the primary antagonist of Digimon Adventure. Apocalymon's very existence generated chaos upon the universe, from which the four Dark Masters were born, Machinedramon himself being the other fusion component of Millenniumon.
  • Necromancer: After defeating them, Millenniumon imprisoned the DigiDestined and revived their previous enemies (Devimon, Etemon, Myotismon and Piedmon) to guard them.
  • Reality Warper: Abnormally strong, he quickly overcomes the DigiDestined as well as the four Digimon Sovereigns. His power was so great, the Digital World itself becomes warped and twisted.
  • Serial Escalation: He's the fusion of two major fusion monsters. There's data for almost two dozen Digimon in this guy.
  • Space Master: Even if Millenniumon is somehow defeated, Moon=Millenniumon will separate from its now-dead physical form and be revived throughout time and space.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Gives off this vibe in his encounters with Ryo.
  • Time Master: As his name implies, Millenniumon was able to freely travel through time and his attacks deal with manipulating space-time.


Daemon (Demon)

"You certainly have a lot of nerve to cross the powers of darkness."

A villain who led a small group of demonic Digimon that terrorized the town while attempting to retrieve Dark Spores from Oikawa and then is removed from the plot and into the Dark Ocean soon after, he is most notably a Knight of Cerebus who is high above in the Digimon Sorting Algorithm of Evil, that he is had to be sealed away.

Voiced by: Masami Kikuchi (JP), Bob Papenbrook (EN), Eugenio Barona (Spain)

  • Beam-O-War: One-handedly against Imperialdramon's Positron Laser.
  • Dark Is Evil: He's a demonic based Digimon to start, but he's also a Knight of Cerebus that's so high in the power escalation that he had to be sealed away than actually defeat him in order to focus back on Oikawa.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Makes witty remarks while intimidating opponents.
  • Demon Lords and Archdevils: He's one of the Seven Demon Lords, but this isn't brought up within the context of the actual series itself.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: He absolutely comes from nowhere, and no one (excepting Oikawa that is, Myotismon) knows who in the heck he is.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Seraphimon, being a Fallen Angel version of him, but this is never brought up within the context of the actual series.
  • Evil Laugh: Does a subdued one when he's sent to the Dark Ocean, noting the futile effort of it as he'd still be around.
  • Evil Overlord: Downplayed, he has a small Terrible Trio under him in the main series, but it is strongly implied that he rules over an immense domain and his exploits in the second season are a small part of a larger plan.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Especially by the late Bob Papenbrook, giving him a deep reverb of sophistication.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Going against Oikawa (and to an extent, Vamdemon / Myotismon), Arukenimon and Mummymon. Averted in the manga adaptation, which depicts them as in cahoots.
  • Excuse Me While I Multitask: He's in a Beam-O-War against Imperialdramon, shoots out a second Evil Inferno, and opens a portal to the Digital World.
  • The Faceless: His face is never unveiled in the anime, though the official artwork depicts him as a hideous blue-skinned demon.
  • Fallen Angel: A Seraphimon, but this isn't brought up within the context of the series.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's much more personable and polite than the major villains, but he would still threaten to destroy a building to get what he wants.
  • Flat Character: Particularly in the Japanese version, where he has nothing even remotely resembling a personality trait. The English version at least made him hammy and a bit of a Deadpan Snarker.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: In the Japanese version. He just appears a few episodes before the end with a Quirky Miniboss Squad, menaces the kids for a while, and gets shoved into a portal to the Dark Ocean. Why? Other than needing the Dark Spores for an unspecified purposes, nothing is explained.
  • Glowing Eyes: Has glowing Occult Blue Eyes within his obscured face.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Has two black, clawed wings growing from his upper back.
  • Hand Blast: He's able to release fire based attacks from his hands,
  • He Knows Too Much: In a meta example, he's the only character who actually knows the truth about the Dark Spores and their creator. Because this would both trivialize the decided upon final villain Myotismon and over-complicate the plot, the writers basically have him Deus-Ex Machina'd into the Dark Ocean never to be mentioned again until Digimon Adventure tri..
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The DigiDestined use his own portal to the Digital World against him, by making it one to the Dark Ocean.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has horns growing from the side of his hood.
  • Inconsistent Dub: In the normally meticulous Spanish dub, Arukenimon once refers to him as "Creepymon", which is his actual official name in most localizations.
  • Karma Houdini: Because he's so powerful there's nothing the kids can actually do to scratch him, so they just seal him away. The end of tri confirms he's still out there, somewhere.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He and his minions bring a level of realistic danger, including attacking civilians and their Card-Carrying Villain traits being played very straight. He himself manages to be so powerful that the heroes opt to sealing him away so they don't have to deal with him anymore.
  • Large Ham: Mixed with Cold Ham, his speeches can be bombastic and he can be at times, but his tone is mostly subdued the majority of his sort appearance.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: At first, he starts off relatively human-sized. When he actually starts fighting, he gets much bigger.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Utilizing the Dark Spores makes him grow slightly in size.
  • Meaningful Name: Daemons are lesser deities from Greek mythology. His Japanese name, however, is simply Demon, referencing how he is a malevolent and extremely powerful Fallen Angel Digimon.
  • Monster of the Week: He was meant to be a bigger character, but the fact there was an excessive number of ongoing plot points when he was introduced led to him playing a much smaller role than intended, and he is quickly written out following his debut episode.
  • My Suit Is Also Super: He's able to No-Sell so completely that not even the heroes' strongest attacks can even singe his clothes.
"Hey, look! Not even a wrinkle!"
"Don't tell me that's the best you can do?!".
  • Occult Blue Eyes: In a noticeable aversion to the Red Eyes, Take Warning and the Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness in the series, Daemon has these sort of eyes and it is justified as a he is a sort of demon.
  • Pitiful Worms: Like most villains in this series, he does this
  • Playing with Fire: He utilizes fire based attacks as one would expect of a demon, notably, Evil Inferno.
  • Power Floats: His standard pose involves floating in place in a serene standing position, to add style.
  • Punched Across the Room: Does this to Arukenimon and Mummymon.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His beams and portals are all colored as such.
  • Sadistic Choice: He threatens to incinerate a building full of people if the children don't relinquish Ken and the Dark Spores.
  • Satan: Like Lucemon, he is a Great Demon Lord and resembles a typical fiend. His name is also pronounced as "demon".
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He is never killed, just forced into the Dark Ocean.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: He is the Demon Lord who represents the cardinal sin of Wrath.
  • Shout-Out: Much like Dagomon, he bears notable Lovecraftian references in his character, such as the Elder Sign on the hood of his robed form.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": In the Japanese it's spelled the same as "demon" but pronounced "Day-mon."
  • Spikes of Villainy: The tips of his wings has noticeable claws that resemble hands,
  • Story-Breaker Power: He's even more of a badass than the Final Boss, hence why he had to get shafted.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: He can freely travel between the Digital World and Earth using portals conjured under his own power.
  • Villain Teleportation: The gang tries getting rid of him, but he just teleports back seconds later.
  • We Will Meet Again: As Daemon is being banished to the Dark Ocean, he uses his last words to taunt the kids that it's only a temporary solution and he will be back eventually.
    "The Dark Ocean? Very impressive, my little DigiDestined. Remind me not to take you so lightly next time. You may think you've seen the last of me, but I will be back!"
  • Wild Card: Notably, he and his minions are the only ones not thralls or pawns in Myotismon's plans to revive him and his temporal involvement throws a wrench in Oikawa's plans.
  • Winged Humanoid: Has two large wings on his pack.
  • You Fool!: Like most villains, he has a habit of doing this.
  • You Got Spunk!: He acts a bit complimentary towards Oikawa ("Kidnapping, Oikawa? I'm impressed") and Imperialdramon ("Not bad, fool. I must admit, I'm impressed").
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Said before he nonchalantly defeats Arukenimon and Mummymon.


Myotismon (Vamdemon)

"The two worlds will unite in darkness, then they shall both be mine!"

His spirit survived destruction at the hands of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon last season, and he spent three years possessing Oikawa and working on his eventual return. He's even more malicious and determined than he was last time - the first thing he did upon resurrecting was torture and murder his minions to test his new power.

His new Digivolutions this season are:

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Richard Epcar (EN), Francisco Andrés Valdivia (Spain), Roberto Mendiola (Latin America)

  • Ax-Crazy: He was always someone who punished or abused his minions severely for losing or for annoyance, but was usually done in moments of anger while being relatively handoffs. The biggest indicator that MaloMyotismon had undergone Sanity Slippage upon his second resurrection? Killing his otherwise minions for no real reason other than sadism.
  • Back from the Dead: The second and final time he does so, but an extremely convoluted one that spanned the entire series.
  • Bad Boss: The first thing he does upon being reborn is torture one of his followers to death, then melt the other one with an acidic mist.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: He uses it to spike Arukenimon.
  • Big Bad: He is behind the plot of the anime's final arc, using Oikawa as his pawn.
  • Bishōnen Line: A Downplayed example. VenomMyotismon, was considerably larger and more of a humanoid Kaiju. MaloMyotismon was slightly smaller with a more bestial face, but otherwise more humanoid proportions and a saner yet more visibly Ax-Crazy personality than his first form.
  • Bloody Murder: Crimson Mist covers his enemy in his blood and melts them.
  • Casting a Shadow: He utilizes dark based attacks and his essence is essentially a Living Shadow.
  • The Chessmaster: Secretly manipulated everyone in order to get resurrected with Daemon being the sole exception.
  • Chest Insignia: Has the Myotismon symbol on his chest.
  • Cool Mask: Has an elongated crow like mask to his face.
  • The Corruption: He corrupted Oikawa and through him, Ken into being his servants in order to resurrected.
  • Dark Is Evil: His essence is a Living Shadow and is easily the most monstrous of Myotismon's forms in terms of personality.
  • Deader Than Dead: His spirit was destroyed in the final battle by being blown up with the light of millions of Digivices, which were then shot out of a BFG. Yep; not coming back from that.
  • Deal with the Devil: "If you really want to go to the Digital World, soothe your heart with darkness and I'll take you there."
  • Demonic Possession: Of Oikawa. He has been inhabiting and twisting the poor man's body and mind since his defeat in the original series.
  • Devour the Dragon: It isn't shown on screen but the final stroke of him torturing Arukenimon to death is one of his arm cannons opening its mouth and seemingly devouring the data she shatters into. Notably he doesn't really do it for a significant power boost like most cases, he just does it because he can.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Everything in this season, aside from the Deep Ocean and the Daemon Corps, was his plan to get resurrected and revived so he could regain his powers in the Digital World, acting as The Man Behind the Man for both Oikawa and Ken.
  • The Disembodied: Before possessing Oikawa, he was just a small glowing ball with a face. By feeding on Oikawa's life force and the children's dark spores, he manages to regain a physical body.
  • The Dreaded: BlackWarGreymon was fearful of him enough to try to kill him while still in his Oikawa state due to knowing how powerful he'd be if he got back to the Digital World. Kari, Gatomon and T.K. are fearful of him for obvious reasons, having experienced his evil before, and the other kids sans Davis become too fearful of him to fight after watching him kill Arukenimon and Mummymon.
  • Emotion Eater: He feeds off the negative emotions of the Dark Spore children to try and counter the light of the DigiDestined.
  • Evil Laugh: Does this a lot, given his new Ax-Crazy personality exaggerating his already psychotic personality.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Against Daemon, when he still possessed Oikawa.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: His body is randomly dotted with them.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Noticeably, his teeth are all sharpened in his form, giving him a more demonic and feral appearance than he had before.
  • Final Exam Finale: Every level from Rookie up is pitted against, hitting him so hard it knocked him out of the Eldritch Location and into the Digital World.
  • Fog of Doom: In the original anime, his trademark attack spews acidic blood at his opponents; but in the dub, this is referred to as a corrosive Crimson Mist instead.
  • For the Evulz: He had no reason to kill Arukenimon and Mummymon, he just wanted to amuse himself.
  • Gambit Roulette: His plan involved Ken utilizing the Dark Rings, Arukenimon utilizing the Dark Towers, BlackWarGreymon destroying Destiny Stones and Oikawa gaining enough Dark Spores to reach the dimension that would revive him, all while all they were unaware of that true purpose, cycling through them until he got the perfect sequence to revive himself.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When using Mental Illusion, both his eyes and his victims' glow white.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Has two streamlined jet wings on the sides of his shoulders.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: A villain from Adventure who wasn't even the most powerful. His presence is only vaguely foreshadowed on a couple of episodes: Wizardmon warning Gatomon and the children about a greater darkness; BlackWarGreymon sensing him inside his host and claiming that he cannot be allowed into the Digital World again; and, in the very first episode, the mark displayed on the Emperor's eyemask being identical to the mark on Myotismon's coffin from Adventure.
  • I Think You Broke Him: "Oops, I think I broke your friends!". Subverted in that it was sadistically deliberate and an act of Faux Affably Evil.
  • Jackass Genie: He reads Arukenimon's mind to see what she desires most. Finding out that she wishes to get away from him, he executes her.
    "I'm afraid she's gone to pieces. All I did was grant her her wish to get as far away from me as possible. Well, she'll never be near me again."
  • Large Ham: His Evil Is Hammy traits are taken Up to Eleven as he dominates the scene with his bombastic speeches.
  • Logical Weakness: He uses the depressed and negative thoughts of the Dark Spore children to build a new body for himself... but that also means if that negativity is dispelled, his physical body can no longer exist.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Mental Illusion leaves the victim in a catatonic state, making them believe their wishes have come true. Forcing oneself to give up on their most wanted desires is the only way to escape it.
  • Made of Evil: Not himself, but Myotismon uses the depressed thoughts of children infected with the Dark Flowers to reformat as MaloMyotismon.
  • Make My Monster Grow: He increases his size by absorbing darkness after being knocked into the Digital World.
  • Make Way for the New Villains: He was directly responsible for the deaths of BlackWarGreymon, Arukenimon, Mummymon and Oikawa.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He's the one who is behind the major events in the series; from the manipulations of Oikawa and Ken and the creations of Arukenimon and Mummymon to the wars of the Digital Emperor, the creations of the Dark Towers, the Dark Rings and Kimeramon and then the invasions of the real world, creation of BlackWarGreymon, the destructions of the Destiny Stones and the power upgrades of the Dark Spores. Really, the only things he's not responsible for are anything related to Dragomon and the Daemon Corps, and even then his corruption of Ken involved the Dark Ocean to some degree.
  • Manipulative Bastard: The entire plot of the second season aside from the Dark Ocean and the Daemon Corpse, was his convoluted way to get revived from tricking Oikawa into allowing a means to get into the digital world and through him, get Ken to get the Dark Rings/Dark Spirals/Dark Towers to be made, so that Arukimon and Mummymon can create artificial Digimon, culminating in BlackWarGreymon who destroys the Destiny Stones, leading to a means to utilize the Dark Spores to access another world.
  • Master of Illusion: Mental Illusion disables every Chosen Child at once. Davis and V-mon work together to break their friends from his trap.
  • Metallic Motifs: His body resembles and mechanized suit with his shoulders being technically bio-technical shoulder cannons.
  • Mind Rape: He has mind-based powers, which he can use to great effect. Firstly, he reads Arukenimon's mind to find out how she does not want to be tortured, just so he can do exactly what she fears most. Then, he traps the Chosen Children in an illusion from which they can only escape by letting go of what they desire the most.
    "What next? What should I do? Show me what you fear."
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: His teeth are noticeably sharpened in his form, giving him a much more feral and demonic appearance.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: "Belial" is a figure in Judeo-Christian demonology, sometimes identified with Satan.
  • The Night That Never Ends: When he battles the kids in the Digital World, he covers the sky with darkness, further boosting his powers.
    "You foolish DigiDestined, watch closely now! Your world is being consumed by eternal night!"
  • Orifice Invasion: He possessed Oikawa by entering the young man's body through the ear.
  • Orifice Evacuation: Once his presence is revealed, he forcefully leaves Oikawa's body through the man's mouth, in a process that debilitates and ultimately kills his former host.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Out of the forms he has, MaloMyotismon is visibly the most different, being a eldritch mix of machine, alien and demon. And having his final form being defeated by talking about hopes and dreams of all things.
  • Phlegmings: His shoulder mouths, which memorably kill Arukenimon and Mummymon in graphically violent ways.
  • Pitiful Worms: Constantly calls his enemies this when in comparison to himself.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: He recreates himself using the Dark Flowers growing out of the children taken by Oikawa, and later uses the children's negativity to counter the light of the Digivices. This backfires when them getting rid of said negativity reduces him to a disembodied spirit again.
  • Power Echoes: His voice has a reverb in his final form.
  • Returning Big Bad: Was seemingly destroyed after serving as the Big Bad of the third arc of Digimon Adventure. However, his spirit survived, and he's behind the events of the final arc.
  • Self-Constructed Being: The goal of his insanely convoluted plans was resurrecting himself as MaloMyotismon.
  • Shoulder Cannon: Has two monstrous faces on his shoulders that can open up and violently kill his targets,
  • Shoulders of Doom: According to supplementary material, they are two seperate entities known as Sodom and Gomorrah.
  • Sinister Schnoz: His elongated crow like mask invokes this, but his actual nose under this is very short.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: In "BlackWarGreymon's Destiny", hinting of his actual appearance later on, and foreshadowing his Demonic Possession of Oikawa.
  • Sphere of Destruction: One form of Screaming Darkness, utilizes this as an attack he does on the heroes.
  • Spikes of Villainy: His final form has these on the back of his odd black jet structure on his back.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Has yellow Prophet Eyes that emphasize his lack of sanity in his form.
  • Slasher Smile: Does this memorably when he kills his minions For the Evulz and later during his Evil Gloating.
  • Take Over the World: His goal to conquer all the worlds, but noticeably is more convoluted and complex in reaching that point than it was before.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: He falls to pieces when the Dark Spore children talk about their hopes and dreams, and expel the darkness he was using to withstand the light of the DigiDestined.
  • Telepathy: Asks Archnemon how she does not want to be tortured, then reads her mind and proceeds to do exactly what she feared.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: He rips open a hole to Earth.
  • This Cannot Be!:
    • Has a minor breakdown and utters this sentence when he realizes that his Mental Illusion attack is useless against Davis, whose only wish is to defeat him.
    • He gets this reaction when the Dark Spore children that have become DigiDestined start talking about their hopes and dreams, causing him to literally fall to pieces until only his shadow remains to scream such a phrase believing that he cannot allow himself to be made to disappear by the "paltry children" as he calls them.
  • Too Many Mouths: His shoulders can split into jaws.
  • True Final Boss: The final enemy the Chosen Children have to face in this continuity.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: The first thing he does upon his resurrection is continue his sadistic streak by brutally torturing and murdering the two Digimon that helped him return.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He gets one like this when DigiDestined from all over the world use their light to weaken him. He tries to use the darkness from the Dark Spore children to withstand the light, but he fails and his breakdown only gets worse when the Dark Spore children become DigiDestined themselves and start talking about their hopes and dreams, which causes his darkness to be expelled and him to lose his body parts until only his shadow remains, screaming that the paltry children as he calls them cannot make him disappear and that he will not allow that to happen to him.
  • Walking Spoiler: His entire existence changes the context of the final arc and his involvement alters how the actions of Ken and later Oikawa as they are revealed to be his his pawns.
  • Weakened by the Light: The hopes and dreams of the entire world's DigiDestined's metaphorical light manage to utterly destroy his physical form, via talking about those hopes and wishes.
  • You Fool!: Like his previous forms, he has a habit of doing this to the DigiDestined.
