Four powerful Mega level Digimon who serve as antagonists in Digimon Adventure, whose existence were brought forth by Apocalymon. Note that most tropes regarding them as a group only apply to the anime, and that they are listed as such here because the group's existence is acknowledged by Bandainote  and for organizational purposes. Due to this connection to them, Apocalymon is listed here as well.


If you wish to see their anime incarnation, click here.

Tropes applying to the group as a whole:

  • Fusion Dance: A specific combination of two of them is used to put Apocalymon into play in his various cards.
  • Made of Evil: Apocalymon brought them into existence, so this pretty much applies.
  • Villain Decay: A strange example, but despite their still large powerful, in the backstory they were able to defeat the Harmonious Ones (essentially the guardians and almost Gods of the Digital World) whereas here they are defeated by the Digidestined, who only have two Megas, and fr the most part fight them seperately.

Debut: Digimon Pendulum 2.0 — Deep Savers
Attacks: (Original) Ultimate Stream, Hell Squeeze, Poseidon Divide, Ultimate Storm, Kamikudakunote ; (Dub) River of Power, Giga Ice Blast/Hell Squeeze/Hot Squeeze, Poseidon's Divide, Ultimate Storm, Crunch

The final form of the Seadramon-species whose whole body is covered in the strongest metal, Chrondigizoit alloy. Its Metal Body reflects every attack. Furthermore, it has the fastest speed of movement among aquatic Digimon. Metal Seadramon was remodeled as a Digimon for use in interception under the sea. Through this, it was completed as a Digimon for use in land, sea, and sky interception. Its Special Move is an energy cannon that is fired off from its snout (Ultimate Stream).

  • The formal name of the "Chrondigizoit Metal" used by Metal-species Digimon is called "Chrondigizoit Hybrid Organism alloy" and is abbreviated as "CHO-alloy". Chrondigizoit alloy is an intermediate material between Chrondigizoit metal and living tissue, so it is able to integrate with living tissue, and it possesses both the super-hard firmness of Chrondigizoit, as well as the smoothness of living tissue.

Mugendramon (Machinedramon)
Attacks: (Original) Mugen Cannonnote , Booster Claw, Catastrophe D, Mugen Handnote ; (Dub) Giga Cannon/Infinity Cannon, Dragon Fire/Booster Claw, Catastrophic Day, Infinite Hand

The Digital World's strongest Digimon, whose body is 100% full metal. It was built by synthesizing the parts of many Cyborg Digimon, and it is thought that all of the Cyborg Digimon produced so far were merely prototypes for the completion of Mugendramon. Its power is at a level that would overwhelm other Digimon, and it possesses an intellect which boasts incomparable throughput, but it is a purely mechanical Digimon which does not share their self-will. Instead, someone planted a program containing evil intentions within the Digicore at the center of its body, and Mugendramon is supplied with infinite power from that malice-filled Digicore. Its Special Move is superdreadnought-class energy waves fired from its two cannons (∞ Cannon).

For a non-protagonist digimon, Mugendramon has had a considerable amount of influence on the mythos. Not only is it one half of the nigh-Cosmic Horror Millenniumon, it's also the basis for later digimon such as Chaosdramon.

  • BFG: Two, in fact, strapped to its back.
  • Evil Genius: It's made out to be such in its profile.
  • Genius Bruiser: It's said to possess a high amount of intellect as well as power.
  • Mechanical Monster: A giant dragon Digimon 100% made of metal that's considered the peak of cyborg Digimon.
  • Mix-and-Match Man: It's comprised of parts from multiple Cyborg and Machine Type Digimon; if you look closely, you'll see that its two cannons are derived from MetalMamemon's Psycho Blaster, its head and right arm come from Megadramon, both its shoulders, chest, and its entire left arm are taken from MetalGreymon, its lower jaw and feet come from MetalTyrannomon, and its knee caps are Andromon's shoulder pads. In a way, it's the mechanical counterpart to the "biological" Kimeramon.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Which, like MetalSeadramon, makes him susceptible to WarGreymon's Dramon Killers in Digimon Adventure.
  • Power Source: Its Digicore serves as a "Replenishment" type, of the "infinite" variety.
  • Retcon: It was originally depicted as an Ultimatenote .
  • Shoulder Cannon: Its main cannons are mounted directly on the back of its shoulders.
  • Straw Vulcan: It has great intellect and power, but not the "will" of other digimon.
  • World's Strongest Man: Its profile information advertises it as the strongest Digimon. Though, this was back in 1999, when it debuted, and more Digimon have cropped up since, including some who could easily challenge it for the title of strongest Digimon.


In Digimon Xros Wars, Mugendramon gains a "powered up" form known as Hi-Mugendramon, which is attained by absorbing large numbers of its minions.
  • Mythology Gag: Its red colors-scheme is likely a nod to both Chaosdramon and Chaos Lord.
  • Shoulder Cannon: It has a pair of these which in this season the regular Mugendramon is is lacking.


Piemon (Piedmon)
Debut: Digimon Pendulum 3.0 - Nightmare Soldiers
Attacks: (Original) Trump Sword, Clown Trick, Masks Square, Toy Wonderness, Ending Snipe; (Dub) Card of Swords/Trump Sword, Clown's Trick, Masks Square, Toy Wonderness, Finishing Sniper

A strange-looking and elusive Demon Man Digimon that is completely shrouded in mystery. Demon Man Digimon have many mysterious qualities, and since Demon- and Undead-species are basically beings from another dimension, their true forms are not totally understood. Why it appeared, and the purpose of its existence are also unclear, and there are currently no means of clarifying those questions. However, its strength is without equal, and if you happen to stumble across Piemon, you probably won't be able to do anything but curse your fate. Its Special Move is an inescapable technique in which it teleports the four swords that pierce the "Magic Box" on its back, causing them to skewer the opponent in the following instant (Trump Sword).

For Piemon's Palette Swap, ChaosPiemon, please see the "Chaos Generals" section.

  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: An in-universe version. No-one knows where it came from or why, and Piemon's obviously not telling.
  • Monster Clown: A demon monster clown.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: His "Clown Trick" has been used to cover several attacks, but is most known for turning the opponent into a key chain and causing explosions. Does various magical effects including transformation and disguises and reflecting an opponent's attack back.
  • Space Master: How "Mask's Square" works; it gives Piemon total control over an area, allowing it to teleport itself and its attacks, as well as control those within it to a limited degree.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: "Trump Sword", though its profile also mentions he can teleport them at will.
  • Villainous Harlequin: Has mostly shown up in media as an antagonist. Though, at the very least, the Piemon in Digimon V-Tamer 01 was as an Anti-Villain. Its appearence in Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is a very unique version of him.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Said to be the trait of Piemon, and all Demon Man Digimon like him.


Pinochimon (Puppetmon)
Debuted: Digimon Pendulum 4.0 - Wind Guardians
Attacks: (Original) Bullet Hammer, Drill Nose, Flying Cross Cutter, Wood Cross, Clean Up, Usonote , Kyodai Mokujinnote , Wires Choking, Bigger Liar; (Dub) Puppet Pummel, Drill Nose, Flying cross Cutter, Wood Cross, Clean Sweep, Lie, Big Dutch Doll, Wires Choking, Big Liar

Built from the body of a cursed Jyureimon, it is an Ultimate Puppet Digimon. It is thought that it was probably a single fiendish hacker that constructed Pinochimon from Jyureimon's data. It has an appearance like a marionette, but it can move under its own volition. Its personality is detestable, as it tells fibs, and when a computer presents false information, it is the work of Pinochimon. Its Special Move is packing gunpowder into its revolver-style hammer, then striking with its strongest technique (Bullet Hammer). If one suffers this attack, they will probably vanish without a trace, not just from the hammer's blow but also from the explosion of the gunpowder.

  • Double Weapon: Its "Bullet Hammer" is part hammer, part revolver.
  • Drop the Hammer: Its "Bullet Hammer" boosts a hammer's concussive force by also detonating a large amount of gunpowder during the blow.
  • Gatling Good: Also "Bullet Hammer."


Apocalymon (Apokarimon, Apocalymon)
Apocalymon's humanoid body
Debut: Digimon Adventure: Anode Tamer
Attacks: (Original) Darkness Zone, Death Evolution, Gran Death Big Bang; (Dub) Darkness Zone, Reverse Digivolve/Dark Evolution, Total Annihilation/Grand Big Bang

A mysterious Digimon that appeared when negative thoughts gathered through dark power. None know its true identity, and whether this thing is a Digimon cannot be analyzed. Although the reason for its appearance is unconfirmed, it is thought that it seeks to purge the chaotic Digital World and return it to "Nothingness". According to one theory, there is a prophecy of Apocalymon's coming in a book of ancient prophecies.

  • Body Horror: There are tubes and veins connecting its body to the massive, uh, thing it happens to be attached to.
  • Combat Tentacles: The large claw-like appendages coming out of its lower half.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: "Gran Death Big Bang", though it's really more of a "Universe Shattering Kaboom" by all intents and purposes.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Formed from negative emotions and those that fell before evolving, and his mere presence warps time and space in the anime.
  • The Heartless: To Digimon that died before they could evolve as well as to humanity.
