    Digimon Emperor 

Digimon Emperor (Digimon Kaiser)

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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emperor_4057.jpg

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?
  • 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. In Part II of Tri, he now wears a black coat.
  • 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. This plays into Ken's desire to be punished for his crimes.
  • Kick the Dog: Literally, in one case.
  • 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.

    Dragomon 

Dragomon (Dagomon)

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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dagomon.png

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").


    Kimeramon 

Kimeramon (Chimairamon)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chimairamon.png

"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... Nope, the red hair is everything it's getting.
  • 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.
  • Legacy Character: Milleniummon 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, 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.
  • 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mumarukeni_203.png

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.


Arukenimon:

"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.
  • Famous Last Words: "Please, no! Not that!"
  • 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.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Which she uses to turn Dark Towers into corrupted versions of Digimon.
  • 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!"


Mummymon:

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

  • Admiring the Abomination: (on Imperialdramon) "You have to admit, that's rather impressive."
  • Adorkable: For all he tries, he is not a very efficient or intelligent antagonist, but his enthusiasm can make him pass for it sometimes.
  • 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.
  • Famous Last Words: "Then I will teach you to fear me!"
  • 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?
    • Actually due to the fact he wasn't aiming for him.
  • 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?
  • 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oikawa_2.png

"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.
  • Ambiguously Gay: While it's debatable how well-versed the Japanese writers are in gay stereotypes, Oikawa wears a purple trenchcoat, and seems a tad obsessed with his late childhood bud Hiroki.
  • Angst: "Happiness is an illusion. Life's ugly and cruel."
    • "You're perfectly right about being alone. We're both doomed to remain this way forever. There isn't any other choice."
  • 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.
  • Continuity Cameo: Not in the flesh, but he's briefly mentioned in the third of the novelizations by Hiroyuki Kakudo, during a conversation between Takeru and his mother.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Subverted. His voice in both versions is quite deep, but he was never truly a bad guy.
  • Evil vs. 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, though before it can kill him, 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.
  • Famous Last Words: "Don't worry. I'll always be here, inside the Digital World. I shall protect it. Goodbye, DigiDestined, and thank you." In the manga adaptation, his last words are "Hiroki...I'm free..." as his body is physically transformed into that of BelialVamdemon/MaloMyotismon and is destroyed by Imperialdramon's Giga Crusher attack.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Malo Myotismon's rampage in the Digital Word.
  • 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.
  • The Unfought: Mostly because he is human. His death comes as a result of Vamdemon 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)

    Milleniummon 

Millenniummon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/milleniumon.png

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.
  • MoonMillenniummon: Basically his soul given form as a Digimon, it is a two-headed serpentine creature sealed within a crystal.
  • ZeedMillenniummon: 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 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.
    • Millenniummon was created when a dying Kimeramon fused with a dying Machinedramon into a single entity.
    • XeedMillenniummon met his supposed end when Monodramon forced a DNA Digivolution between them, the result being a Digi Egg. 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.
  • 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. Milleniumon 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 Milleniumon.
  • Necromancer: After defeating them, Millenniummon imprisoned the Digi Destined and revived their previous enemies (Devimon, Etemon, Myotismon and Piedmon) to guard them.
  • Not So Different: Just like most partner Digimon, Millenniumon's true desire was to have a human partner, specifically Ryo's. Its implied to be the reason for his final defeat of allowing Monodramon to force Fusion Dance with him just to meet this desire.
  • The Omnipotent: Xeed Millenniummon himself is one, who could perform actions that even TWO confirmed Omnipotents within the Digital universe failed to notice. Said omnipotents are ENIAC and ABC, the first computers, who laid down the foundations of the Digital World, and exists in multiple universes all at once.
  • Reality Warper: Abnormally strong, he quickly overcomes the Digi Destined 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 Millenniummon is somehow defeated, Moon=Millenniummon 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, Millenniummon was able to freely travel through time and his attacks deal with manipulating space-time.

Daemon (Demon)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Daemon_2123.gif

"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. Which is shame that because he was one of the few who knows the purpose of the spores and the Dark Ocean in general.

  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: He absolutely comes from nowhere, and no one (excepting Oikawa that is, Myotismon) knows who in the heck he is.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Power Floats: 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: Give me Ken and the Dark Spore, or I will incinerate this building full of people.
  • Satan: One of the best examples in the franchise, along with Lucemon. His name is even 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."
  • 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.
  • Terrible Trio: His followers are a SkullSatamon, LadyDevimon and MarineDevimon.
    • Badass Crew: SkullSatamon basically dishes out a Curb-Stomp Battle to every single one of the Digidestineds' mons and paralyzes Imperialdramon, who was a level higher, without even trying.
  • We Will Meet Again: "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!"
  • 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)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malomyotismon.png

"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:

  • Atrocious Alias: Malo is the Spanish word for "Bad". His new evolution is named BadMyotismon.
  • 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 the true Big Bad, as Oikawa was just his pawn.
  • Bishōnen Line: A highly unusual example of this trope, in that he's gigantic and at his most powerful. So why does he qualify? Because his previous form, Venom Myotismon, was considerably larger, but nowhere near as powerful.
  • Bloody Murder: Melting Blood covers his enemy in his blood and melts them.
  • Deader Than Dead: His spirit was destroyed in the final battle... by being blown up with the light of millions of Digivices... shot out of a BFG.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Emotion Eater: He feeds off the negative emotions of the Dark Spore children to try and counter the light of the DigiDestined.
  • Famous Last Words: "No! This can't be happening! These paltry children can't make me disappear! I won't allow it!"
  • Hijacked by Ganon: A villain from Adventure who wasn't even the most powerful. However, at least vaguely foreshadowed by both Wizardmon warning Gatomon and the children about a greater darkness, and BlackWarGreymon sensing him inside his host and claiming that he cannot be allowed into the Digital World again. Technically, there's a bit of foreshadowing from the very first episode, though it's really hard to notice. The mark displayed on the Emperor's eyemask is identical to the mark on Myotismon's coffin from Adventure.
  • I Think You Broke Him: "Oops, I think I broke your friends!"
  • Jackass Genie: (after killing Arukenimon) "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."
  • 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: He used 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.
  • Master of Illusion: Mental Illusion disables every Chosen Child at once. Daisuke and V-mon work together to break their friends from Belialvamdemon's trap.
  • Mind Rape: "What next? What should I do? Show me what you fear."
  • 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.
  • Shoulders of Doom: According to supplementary material, they are two seperate entities known as Sodom and Gomorrah.
