A beautiful girl who leads the mysterious army Twilight. She appears to be searching for strong soldiers for an unknown purpose. She's not really the leader of Twilight and just a puppet of DarkKnightmon's who is being manipulated because she wants to save her brother Yuu and return home. She joins Taiki and Xros Heart in Episode 21, along with those members of Twilight who actually supported her.

Voiced by: Houko Kuwashima (Japanese), Melissa Fahn (English)

  • Affably Evil
    • Beware the Nice Ones: She has a few tricks up her sleeves. When she asked Kiriha to join her, and when she brought out Sparrowmon she means business.
    • In the manga she's seen relaxing in a beach, and Sparrowmon just finished off the Bagra commander, then she decides whether to take out either Taiki or Kiriha
  • Anti-Villain: For most of the first season and most of the manga.
  • Advertisement:
  • Big Brother Instinct: She worked under DarkKnightmon in order to rescue her brother, Yuu, who had vanished into the Digital World, or alternatively so that he would help cure her sick sister.
  • Chickification: The first season started her off as a competent Action Girl who even manipulated Kiriha to joining her team at first. In season 2, her outfit, skill set, and team role becomes more feminine, although still badass. But in season 3, she's just a special guest star who is now a pop-idol and at one point actually complains that Kiriha is being too rough despite handling worse. This may be due to the year gap between Xros Wars and Hunter Boys, however.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: One might assume her color is green, like the Monitamon working for her...until she pulls out a Black Xros Loader. It later turns lavender.
  • Advertisement:
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: In the second arc. It definitely comes in handy sometimes. Where does she get the costumes? Who knows.
  • Damsel in Distress: Both Taiki and Kiriha want to save her in Episodes 20-21. Even more so in the manga.
  • Eviler Than Thou: In the show she is willing to torture defeated and non combatant Digimon to get what she wants, Kiriha as no interest in abusing on the weak if they are not in his way or those who are clearly defeated. In the manga she is willing to take hostages and hold their safety over her enemy's heads, which drives Kiriha away.
  • Exposed to the Elements: In the manga she claims that she cannot feel the cold, or much of anything for that matter.
    • Redemption Rejection: Manga!Nene also states she will never be able to make up for her sins since she has lost the ability to feel remorseful about them.
  • Expy: Somewhat reminisciant of Rika, even moreso in the sequel series when we find out she has daddy issues. Bonus points for being voiced by Melissa Fahn in the English dub version who also voiced Rika.
    • And Sora due to her chickification in the third arc.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Improbable Hairstyle: She takes it pretty hard when brainwashed Sparrowmon disses it and holds onto the grudge even after the condition has passed and Sparrowmon cannot even remember what happened.
  • It Is Pronounced Tropay: "Neh-neh"
  • Magic Skirt
  • Master of Disguise: In the second half, she has a penchant for disguises.
  • Mister Exposition: At first.
  • Ms. Fanservice: In the manga, her Shademon fusion form is essentially naked except for darkness covering her chest and waist. She's totally naked in her Moon=Millenniummon form, with the demon Digimon's spectral heads covering her chest and crotch, and her Luminamon has white fuzz covering her chest and a pair of wings that act as Scenery Censors for her crotch.
  • Ninja
  • Not So Above It All: In episode 23, she starts to showcase more personality and is the one that finally gets Karatenmon to laugh. From then on, she stops being The Stoic and acts like a normal person.
  • Ojou: Certainly acts like one.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Sixth Ranger: Nene joins Xros Heart in episode 21.
  • The Stoic: For the first 20 or so episodes, at least, until she reveals her Not So Stoic side.
  • The Strategist
  • When She Smiles

Monitamon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Monitamon_5727.png

A trio of ninja Digimon who serve Nene, spying on the heroes and collecting information for her. The Monitamon join Xros Heart along with Nene in Episode 21.

Their digivolved and Xrossed forms are as follows:

Hi-VisionMonitamon, a merger of three Monitamon. A variety of Monitamon dressed in black and with an HD televisionnote  for a head instead of an old CRT TV, with a yellow satellite dish mounted on top of it.

Voiced by: Yuko Maruyama (Japanese), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (English)

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the Omake at the end of every episode, Monitamon tells us about a Digimon and its attacks...and usually ends up likening them to some sort of mundane utility.
  • Elemental Powers
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Come on, they have giant TVs for heads!
    • Subverted. Despite their looks and tomfoolery, Nene always seems to have information on Taiki's whereabouts and deeds. The implication? The Monitamon are always there, doing such a good job of spying that we never see them.
    • And then played straight in the Shinobi Zone, pretty much all of them in bright colors you'd expect in another series.
  • Shout-Out: They look a lot like Canti from FLCL, and appear similar to the Zakus from SD Gundam Force.

Monimon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Monimon_6751.png

A tiny light green TV-shaped Digimon that Nene carries in her arms. Monimon joins Xros Heart along with Nene in Episode 21.


Sparrowmon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sparrowmon_3084.jpg

A female Digimon in the shape of a yellow fighter jet, who serves Nene. She joins Xros Heart along with Nene in Episode 21, and contributes to the Shoutmon X5 and Shoutmon X7 Xrosses.

Her digivolved and Xrossed forms are as follows:

Sparrowmon After Burner, with Ballistamon. Ballistamon becomes a pair of jet engines attached to Sparrowmon's back, allowing her to fly at high speeds. (Manga only)
RaptorSparrowmon, her natural evolution. A much larger Sparrowmon with huge wings, several tendril-like tails, legs, and a more bird-like appearance. (Manga only)

Bagra Army

Joined the Bagra Army in episode 31, remained separate in the manga.

AxeKnightmon (DarkKnightmon)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DarkKnightmon_Xros_Wars_1455.jpg

A powerful, mysterious Digimon that belongs to Nene's Twilight army. He is the true leader of Twilight and is in possession of the Darkness Loader, which he claims will unlock his desires. Episode 29 reveals that he is in fact Bagramon's younger brother.

His digivolved and Xrossed forms are as follows:

SkullKnightmon, one of the two base components of DarkKnightmon. A squat knight with a skull motif, dual-wielding red lances.
Axemon (DeadlyAxemon), one of the two base components of DarkKnightmon. A black quadrupedial creature whose body mostly consists of blades.
MusouKnightmon, with Tuwarmon. DarkKnightmon receives a massive Tuwarmon-shaped BFG turret attached to both of his hands.

Voiced by: Jurota Kosugi (Japanese), Kirk Thornton (English, Axe Knightmon and above, Axemon), Matthew Mercer (English, Skull Knightmon)

  • Affably Evil: In the show he never stops behaving like a gentleman, even when he's ruining people's lives. Not so much in in the manga.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: He did say that he was but a noble. Although Bagramon calls him out on this near the end of the series, saying that he started calling himself a noble one day despite never actually being one. However, according to the official subs available for viewing on Crunchyroll, Bagramon instead chastises him for proudly flying the banner of nobility just to make himself look good, so he may actually be an aristocrat after all, but one who defines himself by flaunting his noble status rather than letting his merit speak on its own accord.
  • An Axe to Grind: His component Digimon DeadlyAxemon
    • Also: Big Axe Mode and the Interdimensional Axe he uses to travel between lands in the second half of the series.
  • Badass Cape: As both DarkKnightmon and SkullKnightmon.
  • BFG: DarkKnightmon and Tsuwamon's DigiXros, MusouKnightmon, is armed with this.
  • Big Bad Wannabe
  • Black Knight
  • Blade on a Stick
  • The Chessmaster
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder
  • Detachment Combat: He has Nene split him into SkullKnightmon and DeadlyAxemon. SkullKnightmon is the dominant personality of the two when they are combined.
  • The Dragon: Becomes this to Bagramon after joining his side upon the Bagra Army's collection of the Code Crowns at the conclusion of the series's first half.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: Is granted full authority over the Bagra Army by the Emperor himself and is specifically charged with policing the subjugated countries in his brother's stead. Oddly, his official rank in the army is "Admiral," in spite of the fact that the only ocean is ruled by a piratical Death General and the rest of the empire has nothing resembling a naval force.
    • Dragon with an Agenda: Planned to betray his brother from the very beginning by means of absorption with the Darkness Loader.
  • Easily Forgiven: In the manga.
  • Enemy Mine: With Lilithmon as of Episode 21. As per usual, DarkKnightmon's intentions are anyone's guess. Of course, both intend to betray the other as soon as they have no further use for one another.
    • This is ultimately subverted when we find out in episode 29 that DarkKnightmon was part of the Bagra Army from the start; technically he and Lilithmon were always on the same side, Lilithmon just didn't know it.
  • Equippable Ally: DeadlyAxemon has been this to SkullKnightmon outside of their DarkKnightmon form as well as to Tuwarmon and Apollomon Whispered.
  • Evil Laugh: He can't even seem to finish his sentences without some sort of ominous chuckling, to say *nothing* of when he's properly "amused".
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Especially when he's influencing Nene.
    • He has them in his SkullKnightmon form, too.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard
  • Large Ham: An oddly well-cultured one, but a ham nonetheless.
  • Leitmotif: Dark Knight: The King of Immortality. Kill you, indeed.
    • Notably used in episode 52, when DarkKnightmon betrays Bagramon.
  • Lightning Bruiser: SkullKnightmon and DeadlyAxemon are VERY agile.
  • Literal Split Personality: Is actually the DigiXros of SkullKnightmon and DeadlyAxemon. Though DeadlyAxemon is little more than an attack dog, he's quite clearly a different being from SkullKnightmon.
  • Loss of Identity: In the manga. As he forcibly DigiXroses more and more Digimon, his mind gets lost among theirs until he becomes a mindless, power-hungry berserker. He gets better, but the sight of him in that state drives Bagramon to Manly Tears.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Man Behind the Man: Episode 19 reveals that he is essentially the leader of Twilight and is using Nene for his own twisted purpose by using her love for her brother to manipulate her.
  • Mind Hive: In the manga as a result of numerous forced DigiXroses. The minds blur together until he can't even remember his own name.
  • More Than Mind Control: There's just something off about his relationship with Nene.
    • And now, with Kiriha as well.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast
  • Obviously Evil: As well as the Glowing Eyes of Doom, which should be enough for any sane person, the very names of him and the Digimon that make him up (SkullKnightmon and DeadlyAxemon don't exactly sound like creatures you'd like to meet at night) and also the Evil Laugh all add to one of the most frightening Digimon ever to appear.
  • Out of Focus: DeadlyAxemon doesn't really do anything aside from form half for DarkKnightmon, hit MetalGreymon a couple of times and Xros with Tuwarmon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His SkullKnightmon form has a pair of the chestplate.
  • Sanity Slippage: Major case in the manga do to how forced DigiXros affects his mind.
  • Shadow Archetype: From a design standpoint, he's this to Shoutmon X4 and above. When paired with his brother, he's this towards Nene and Yuu. In terms of modus operandi, he's this towards Taiki.
  • Shout-Out: SkullKnightmon looks to be one towards both a Gunmen and Meta-Knight from the Kirby series.
    • Then there's the fact that his name, cape, and familiar-shaped structure on his chest tend to remind one of Batman.
  • Spikes of Villainy: To grotesque levels in the manga once he starts piling on DigiXroses.
  • The Starscream: Betrays Bagramon with a hefty backstab, before DigiXrossing with him to attain full power. Backfires spectacularly when Bagramon seizes back control from within and effectively destroys him.
    • His brother knew DarkKnightmon was antagonistic towards him, but admired his forward thinking. It seems that the brothers have a rather...unique relationship.
  • Wicked Cultured: He maintains the air of a gentleman, speaking in a tone that emphasizes his arrogance and nobility.

Ewan Amano (Yuu Amano)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Yuu_Amano_3048.png

Nene's younger brother. He was manipulated by DarkKnightmon into leading the Bagra Army as its primary tactician, believing it all to be just a game.

Voiced by: Kanae Oki (Japanese), Cindy Robinson (English)

  • The Atoner: Yuu will probably head this way in the second series, because it looks like he'll be a part of the good guys.
  • Beneath the Mask/Not Brainwashed: Before he entered the Digital World, Yuu was a kind boy who did not want to hurt anyone. However, he resented having to handicap himself in order to keep himself from hurting others. His behaviour in the Digital World was due to his belief that no one there could get hurt or die, which let him use his full talents with impunity.
  • Cain and Abel: Though played with in that the evil one is the younger of the two siblings.
    • Subverted. His antagonism towards his sister was the product of his belief that he couldn't hurt her in the Digital World, rather than any previous sibling rivalry.
  • Creepy Child: It varies in how it shows - sometimes through his sheer cheerful obliviousness to everything he's causing, and sometimes when he snaps and gets desparate to win.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger
  • Expy: Of Ken from Digimon Adventure 02. He thinks that the Digital World is just a game, even though his sister and her friends tell him otherwise. He is actually a very kind kid who just wants to be able to escape the sadness and pain of the Real World, and his Digimon dies in his arms.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Used to be bad, turned good.
  • Heel Realization: When he finally realizes his actions have been causing real pain and death, it hits the poor kid hard. He even calls himself "the worst person in the world" at one point, distraught as he is.
  • Human Resources: His energy is used to fuel the Darkness Loader in episodes 52 and 53.
  • Obliviously Evil
  • The Strategist
  • Supporting Leader: In the final battle. While Taiki worked on rescuing Shoutmon, Yuu took command of the Xros Heart forces for him and personally used most of Taiki's Digimon.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Of DarkKnightmon, just like his sister was.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: He's apparently hoodwinked into believing the Digital World is a video game, so he has no problem with giving a "game over" to anyone - like his sister, for instance!
  • Villainous Breakdown: After the fact that it's not just a game is revealed to him, only worsened by Damemon's death.
  • Walking Spoiler
