Agumon Digivolves from Koromon, and is the Digimon of Tai, the leader of the DigiDestined. He first appeared, like the other kids' Rookie Digimon, to battle Kuwagamon. Much like Tai, he is brave, and doesn't back down from a fight in a hurry. He's humble by nature, but his powerful Pepper Breath attack, which involves him shooting a fireball from his mouth, teaches other Digimon not to underestimate him.
Agumon would Digivolve into his Champion form of Greymon whenever Tai was imperilled, doing so for the first time to protect Tai from Shellmon. However, after accidentally Digivolving to SkullGreymon, Agumon was afraid to Digivolve again, in case he wound up hurting his friends. Thanks to Piximon, he and Tai overcame their fears and mastered the Ultimate level Digivolution, allowing Agumon to become MetalGreymon. After defeating Etemon, Tai and Agumon were sucked through a portal back to the real world, where they learned that Digimon were somehow crossing between dimensions and causing the weird weather that was plaguing the globe. After a battle with Ogremon, they went back to the DigiWorld to gather up the other kids. Agumon again returned to the real world along with Tai and the others during the ongoing confrontation with Myotismon. By this time, it was apparent that he and Gabumon had attained more control over their Digivolutions, as they only reverted back into their rookie stages after becoming Ultimates. After defeating VenomMyotismon, by Digivolving to his Mega stage of WarGreymon, Agumon then went back to the DigiWorld to help Tai and the other kids battle the Dark Masters and Apocalymon.
The Japanese Wonderswan video games add a little to Agumon's story here - at some point after Apocalymon's defeat, he teamed up with Ryo to rescue the DigiDestined from the clutches of Millenniummon.
In Novemember 1999, a gate between the DigiWorld and Earth opened briefly, allowing Agumon to communicate with Tai. This was revealed in a Japanese audio drama CD, released three years after season one ended. In March 2000, when Diaboromon threatened the Internet, Tai and Izzy communicated with Gennai and had him send Agumon and Tentomon into the Internet, where they battled with Keramon, Diaboromon's Rookie stage. Keramon Digivolved to Infermon and defeated Greymon and Kabuterimon, and then, when Matt and Gabumon came into play, Infermon became Diaboromon, and WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon fused into Omnimon to destroy him.
In May 2000, Agumon and the other Digimon lost their ability to Digivolve to Ultimate when the DigiDestined gave up the energies associated with their Crests to seal the DigiWorld off from evil.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor began his conquest of the DigiWorld, Agumon summoned Tai to help. Arriving in the DigiWorld, Tai learned that the Digimon had been rendered unable to Digivolve by the power of the Emperor's Dark Digivice. Taking cover, Agumon, Tai, Patamon and Gatomon discovered the Digi-Egg of Courage, which released three new Digivices when Tai touched it. The Digivices were sent into the real world, to be received by Davis, Yolei and Cody - the new DigiDestined.
When the new kids discovered that the Emperor's Control Spires were suppressing Digivolving, Agumon destroyed several as Greymon, along with the other Champion Digimon. Agumon and each of the other Digimon were given an area of the DigiWorld to guard. However, the Digimon Emperor had plans for Agumon, and captured him, while he was Greymon, with one of his Dark Rings. The Emperor attempted to make Greymon Digivolve to battle the DigiDestined, but he wound up becoming SkullGreymon once again. When he reverted back to Agumon, the Emperor captured him, and created the Dark Spiral, a more powerful version of the Dark Ring, planning to use it on Agumon. However, Wormmon, the Emperor's partner, wanted him to use him to fight, rather than Agumon, and set Agumon free. The Emperor simply tracked him down again, and succeeded in capturing him with the Spiral. Agumon then Dark Digivolved into a viral version of MetalGreymon (his power to become Ultimate temporarily restored by the Spiral), and battled the DigiDestined, until Raidramon was able to destroy the Spiral and free him.
Agumon appeared again to help cause a distraction to allow the DigiDestined to access the Emperor's base, by igniting a stream of oil, with help from Gabumon and Tentomon.
Some time later, when Arukenimon and Mummymon created BlackWarGreymon, Agumon attempted to talk with the embittered Digimon, to convince him that he did have a heart, and that he would be his friend. The conversation was ended when BlackWarGreymon was caused pain by Knightmon breaking one of the seals on the first Destiny Stone, and BlackWarGreymon left to seek out the pain's source. Later on, Agumon and all the other Digimon of the original eight kids were brought back into the real world to celebrate Christmas with their human partners - only the festivities were cut short when Control Spires started to appear all across the world, and wild Digimon made it through to Earth as Arukenimon opened all the Digi-Ports. Gennai gave the original eight Digimon a power boost from Azulongmon's Digi-Core, restoring their ability to Digivolve to Ultimate, and Agumon went with Tai, T.K. and Patamon to Paris, where they met up with T.K.'s Grandfather. Discovering that a French DigiDestined girl, Catherine, was being held prisoner by Mamemon, BigMamemon, MetalMamemon and Giromon, Agumon and Patamon - somewhat enamoured by Catherine's Floramon - became MetalGreymon and MagnaAngemon to send them back to the DigiWorld and destroy the Control Spire. Returning to Odaiba to meet up with the other DigiDestined, they discovered that Daemon and his minions had arrived on Earth, in search of Ken and the Dark Spore within him. The Ultimate Digimon battled SkullSatamon, but were bested by him. In order to give Imperialdramon the power he needed, the eight Digimon once again sacrificed their ability to Digivolve to Ultimate, boosting Imperialdramon's power and enabling him to Mode Change into his Fighter Mode to destroy SkullSatamon. They returned to the DigiWorld.
Agumon came back to Earth once more with the news that BlackWarGreymon was back, and he was searching for Oikawa, the mysterious man who had already copied Ken's Dark Spore, and who was the creator of Arukenimon and Mummymon. BlackWarGreymon tracked Oikawa down, but Tai, Kari, Agumon and Gatomon showed up, and Agumon, receiving another power boost from Azulongmon, was able to Warp-Digivolve to WarGreymon once again to battle BlackWarGreymon. With help from Imperialdramon, he defeated him, and reverted to Agumon, to try and talk sense into BlackWarGreymon along with Wormmon and Veemon. BlackWarGreymon departed to think on what they had said, but was later critically injured in battle with Oikawa, who had become empowered by the forces of darkness. BlackWarGreymon sacrificed what remained of his life, sealing up the portal to the DigiWorld at Highton View Terrace, as WarGreymon called out his name as he vanished.
Agumon appeared again with all the other Digimon, and all the other Digimon of the world's DigiDestined, to witness the destruction of MaloMyotismon.
Three months later, when it was discovered that Diaboromon had survived the battle four years beforehand, Agumon, Gabumon, Tai and Matt ventured into the Internet once more to confront him. Agumon and Gabumon became Omnimon, and destroyed Diaboromon with help from Angemon and Angewomon, but he lived on as millions of Kuramon, who entered the real world and became Armageddemon. Omnimon was no match for Armageddemon, and after being defeated, separated back into Agumon and Gabumon as his energy transformed nto a holy ring, which became the Omega Sword and transformed Imperialdramon to his Paladin Mode, enabling him to defeat Armageddemon.
Twenty-five years later, the portal to the DigiWorld remains open, and Agumon remains at Tai's side - they are both diplomats, dealing with relations between the real and digital worlds.
Agumon first appeared in "And so it begins..." In the first two episodes, he is voiced by Michael Lindsay. After this, his voice is supplied by Tom Fahn.
Name: "Agu" is most probably short for the Japanese word "agurabana," which means a wide, flat nose.
Four years before "And so it begins..." as detailed in "Digimon: The Movie", when a Digi-Egg arrived on Earth, it hatched, and an Agumon Digivolved from the Digimon which emerged. This Agumon (identified as "Big Agumon" in the movie's credits) went on a destructive jaunt through Odaiba, until another Digimon, Parrotmon appeared, and engaged the Agumon in battle. It Digivolved into a Greymon, and the two Digimon battled. The outcome of the battle was revealed to the kids in "The Ultimate Clash," showing how the two Digimon were brought back to the digital world. This Agumon's voice was supplied by Michael Sorich.

The first time an Airdramon appeared was actually just after the destruction of VenomMyotismon - it was seen on a news broadcast for a mere second.
Four years later, however, the Digimon Emperor had squadrons of Airdramon under the control of his Dark Rings. The first time on appeared was when he used one to escape from the new DigiDestined when they discovered his true identity. After that, he used them to carry the Dark Ring-possessed Greymon to battle the DigiDestined When Greymon Digivolved to SkullGreymon, and then reverted to Agumon, the Airdramon again carried him away. After the Emperor captured Agumon again with a Dark Spiral, and Dark Digivolved him into MetalGreymon, a squadron of Airdramon accompanied the Emperor as he rode on the viral creature's back. When Raidramon destroyed the Spiral, an Airdramon swooped down to pick up the Emperor and flee.
A squadron of Airdramon shot down Birdramon and left her stranded in a desert, to be ambushed by Starmon, and then Pegasusmon and Angewomon battled another Airdramon in the World of Darkness. Rather than remove the Dark Ring possessing it, however, Angewomon elected to destroy it with her Heaven's Charm attack.
The Emperor and Wormmon were seen riding an Airdramon after a setting up a Control Spire near the village ruled by ShogunGekomon.
Airdramon data was also spliced into Kimeramon by the Emperor, giving the creature Airdramon wings, and much later, an Airdramon partnered with Tatum, an Irish-American DigiDestined was seen in New York when Digimon were rampaging on Earth. Several Airdramon were also sighted on the China/India border. Multiple Airdramon (one of which would have been Tatum’s) were then seen during the final confrontation with MaloMyotismon.
An Airdramon first appears in "The Battle for Earth." They first appear under the Emperor's control in "Ken's Secret."
Name: From "air" and "dragon," which "dra" is short for.

The kids continue on their way back home with a little help from Sora's cousin, only to run into trouble in the form of Gesomon.
Group: Android - Level: Ultimate - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Lightning Blade, Gatling Attack
Andromon is equipped with radar target locks in his eye sockets, with which he can lock onto his targets and fire. He has twin missile launchers concealed under his chest plate.
The kids met Andromon when they discovered a mysterious factory in the DigiWorld. Andromon had fallen victim to a Black Gear, and was in the process of chasing the kids when Izzy found the factory's power source and tapped his computer into it, allowing him access to the DigiWorld mainframe. Tentomon Digivolved to Kabuterimon and released Andromon from the Black Gear's thrall. When asked about the factory, which was powered by perpetual motion, Andromon admitted that even he didn't understand how it worked.
The kids encountered Andromon again when they were battling the Dark Masters. Andromon was attempting to assemble an underground resistance force to fight Machinedramon, and aided the kids in battling him. WarGreymon finished off the Dark Master, and Andromon accompanied Tai, Izzy, Sora, Kari and T.K. on their way to battle Piedmon. On the way, they were attacked by Piedmon's bodyguard, LadyDevimon. Andromon helped them fight her, and then Angewomon defeated her. Then, Piedmon emerged, and Tai and WarGreymon held him off, while Sora and T.K. were dispatched to find Matt. They succeeded, and also brought Joe back with them. Piedmon used his magic powers to transform Matt, Tai, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon into key chains, and then Andromon duelled with the sinister clown, giving the kids time to escape. However, he lost, and was also transformed. When MagnaAngemon retrieved the key chains, he used his MagnaAntidote to restore Andromon and the others to normal. Andromon then helped the kids, and the small army of Digimon that Mimi had gathered, battle Piedmon's Vilemon. MagnaAngemon sucked them all into his Gate of Destiny, and Andromon and the other Digimon departed. However, the kids were soon attacked by Apocalymon, and following his defeat, Andromon appeared to congratulate the kids, and explain that the DigiWorld was being reformatted and restored to normalcy.
Four years later, Andromon appeared again, under the control of one of the Digimon Emperor's Dark Rings. He attacked the DigiDestined in the city of the Gardromon, but the Ring was not powerful enough to completely control him. Seeing Tai's goggles on Davis, and then seeing Kari, began to restore some of his memories, and then Tai's arrival, along with the power of Kari's D-3, freed Andromon from the Ring's control. He snapped it free from his neck, and used his Gatling Attack to destroy the Control Spire. He then began to free the Gardromon and said he would stay in the city to safeguard it.
Andromon first appears in "Kabuterimon's Electro Shocker." His voice is supplied by Michael Sorich.
Name: Derived from the English word, "android," meaning a robot with human form.
"AND SO IT BEGINS..."
Digimon Adventure episode #1 (season premiere)
English version written by R.D. Chamberlain and John Ludin
Seven kids go to summer camp and find themselves transported to a bizarre alternate dimension, where they meet up with a collection of creatures who call themselves Digimon: Digital Monsters, who Digivolve to protect the kids from Kuwagumon.
Group: Angel - Level: Champion - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Hand of Fate, Angel Rod
Angemon Digivolves from Patamon, the Digimon of T.K. of the DigiDestined. During their early battles with Devimon and his minions, Patamon seemed incapable of Digivolving. During the final battle, Devimon turned on Patamon and T.K., as it had been prophesied that the smallest one would defeat him. He was intent on making sure that did not happen, but before he could dispatch them, Patamon finally Digivolved to Angemon. He drew power from all the other kids' Digivices and used all his energy to destroy Devimon. He then regressed back into the form of a Digi-Egg.
Soon, the egg hatched into Poyomon, who later Digivolved to Tokomon, then back to Patamon. It was not until the kids returned to the real world that Patamon again Digivolved to Angemon. Patamon and T.K. got into an argument, and Patamon ran off, leaving T.K., Matt and Gabumon to look for him. Instead, they found Pumpkinmon and Gotsumon, who were found to be goofing off from their search for the Eighth Child by Myotismon, and were destroyed as a result. T.K. was so upset that Patamon Digivolved again, and saw Myotismon off. Angemon then had a hand in defeating Myotismon again, along with Angewomon, and then leant his power in the final battle with VenomMyotismon.
Patamon seemed to gain more control over his Digivolutions from then onwards, and was able to Digivolve whenever T.K. was in peril, defending him against the Dark Masters and their minions. He finally Digivolved to his Ultimate stage of MagnaAngemon to do battle with Piedmon.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor was conquering the DigiWorld, Patamon was reunited with T.K., but the Emperor's Control Spires made him unable to Digivolve into Angemon when in their presence. However, when attempting to free Kari from a city of Gardromon, Patamon was able to become Angemon due to the fact the Control Spire in the region was only inside the city's dome, and not affecting the outside area. Angemon deactivated the Gardromon sentry, but then De-Digivolved to Patamon when he and the others entered the city, and the Control Spire's energy field.
At an undefined point in time between the discovery of the Digi-Egg of Friendship and the defeat of the Digimon Emperor, Angemon appeared to battle Kokomon, the rogue Digimon partner of Willis, a DigiDestined from America. Kokomon, in his Mega form of Kerpymon, had already defeated the other Armour Digimon, but Angemon and Angewomon arrived to help in the battle. Realising they alone did not have the strength to defeat Kokomon, they called upon all their energy, and Digivolved into their own Mega stages. Angemon Warp-Digivolved to Seraphimon, and released the Digi-Egg of Miracles before being cut down by Kokomon and reverted to Patamon. Kokomon was subsequently defeated by Magnamon and Rapidmon (Note that this appearance, which occurred in "Digimon: The Movie" is actually supposed to be out of continuity with the rest of the series, but was shoe-horned in by the American translators, and must be included here. However, take note that Angemon's ability to Digivolve to Seraphimon is solely confined to the movie, and does not impact on the rest of the series).
Angemon reappeared shortly after the Digimon Emperor was restored to his normal self. Patamon Digivolved to Angemon to help the other new Champions battled Okuwamon, who had been created by Arukenimon. However, he was quickly beaten.
Angemon then appeared once more to battle BlackWarGreymon and defend the second Destiny Stone. He was able to use the stone to give himself a power boost, allowing himself to become MagnaAngemon (having previously lost the ability to go Ultimate in the four year interim when the DigiDestined gave up the powers of their Crests to seal the DigiWorld off from evil). BlackWarGreymon was on the ropes, but then destroyed the Destiny Stone, causing MagnaAngemon to revert to Patamon.
Angemon appeared again to battle BlackWarGreymon with Silphymon and Paildramon, and he and Ankylomon DNA Digivolved into Shakkoumon.
A power boost from Azulongmon restored Angemon's ability to Digivolve to Ultimate, and he did so when in France with T.K., Tai and Greymon, to save Catherine, a French DigiDestined, from the Mamemons and Giromon, and to destroy the Control Spire that had appeared there. He, along with the other original seven Digimon, then gave up his power to go Ultimate to give Imperialdramon the power to Mode Change. Angemon and Ankylomon then merged into Shakkoumon to battle MarineDevimon, and then the malevolent Daemon. The three DNA Digivolved Ultimates sent Daemon through a portal to the World of Darkness.
Angemon appeared again when the DigiDestined found themselves in the dream dimension of MaloMyotismon, when the kids were subjected to illusions of their greatest desires. When they won through, they were able to use the power of the dream dimension to their own ends, and their Digimon physically split into their separate evolutionary stages. Patamon, Pegasusmon, Angemon, MagnaAngemon and Shakkoumon joined with all the other stages to battle MaloMyotismon, but when he crossed the border to the DigiWorld, only the "real" incarnation of Patamon could cross over, and so Shakkoumon went across, while the Angemon avatar faded away.
Three months later, when it was discovered that Diaboromon had survived his battle with Omnimon four years beforehand, Angemon and Angewomon aided Omnimon in battling him once more. The two angels seized the villain, holding him so Omnimon could destroy him. However, he lived on as millions of Kuramon, which entered the real world and became Armageddemon, who was destroyed by Imperialdramon Paladin Mode. Strangely, in this adventure, Angemon was animated many times larger than his normal size.
Angemon first appears in "The Legend of the DigiDestined." Note that in this episode, he and all the other characters pronounce his name "Ayne-Jeh-Mon." However, in his next appearance in "Out on the Town," and all subsequent appearances, his name is pronounced "An-Jeh-Mon." His voice is supplied by Dave Mallow.
Name: Derived from the English word, "angel."
Group: Angel - Level: Ultimate - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Celestial Arrow, Heaven's Charm
Angewomon is the Digivolved form of Gatomon. Originally, Gatomon had been one of Myotismon's minions in his assault on the real world and his search for the Eighth Child, but thanks to Wizardmon, she was able to remember that she was in fact destined to be the Digimon of the Eighth Child, who was in fact Kari Kamiya, the little sister of Tai Kamiya, the leader of the DigiDestined. When Kari obtained her Digivice and Tag and Crest, Gatomon was able to Digivolve into Angewomon, and used her Celestial Arrow attack to destroy Myotismon. When Myotismon returned as VenomMyotismon, Angewomon directed her attack at Tai, as per the requirements of a prophecy uncovered by Gennai, allowing Agumon to Warp-Digivolve to WarGreymon, who, along with MetalGarurumon, went on to beat VenomMyotismon. Gatomon then went back to the DigiWorld with Kari and the other kids, and Digivolved to Angewomon whenever Kari was in peril, protecting her against Puppetmon and his mansion, WaruMonzaemon, Machinedramon, and went one-on-one with LadyDevimon. She was transformed into a key chain by Piedmon, and then restored by MagnaAngemon, and helped in the battle against the Vilemon and then Apocalymon.
Gatomon lost the ability to Digivolve into Angewomon in May 2000,, when each of the DigiDestined had to give up the powers associated with their Crests to seal the DigiWorld off from evil.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor was conquering the DigiWorld, at one point, Kari found herself drawn into a strange third dimension - the World of Darkness - where a group of supposed Digimon calling themselves Scubamon asked her free them from Dark Spirals they said the Emperor had put on them. However, an Airdramon then attacked, but T.K., Patamon and Gatomon arrived through a portal to fight it. Pegasusmon destroyed the Control Spire nearby, and then, a beam of pink light shot down from the heavens. Gatomon leapt into the beam, and was temporarily powered up enough to Digivolve into Angewomon. Angewomon destroyed the Airdramon with her Heaven's Charm attack, then freed the Scubamon from the Spirals. However, the "Scubamon" - who were not really Digimon (see their own entry for information) - turned on Kari, and tried to take her to their undersea kingdom. Angewomon saw them off, and then she carried Kari back through the portal to Earth.
When she reverted to Gatomon (off-screen), she no longer had the power to Digivolve back into Angewomon. Regardless, at an undefined point in time between the discovery of the Digi-Egg of Friendship and the defeat of the Digimon Emperor, Angewomon appeared to battle Kokomon, the rogue Digimon partner of Willis, a DigiDestined from America. Kokomon, in his Mega form of Kerpymon, had already defeated the other Armour Digimon, but Angemon and Angewomon arrived to help in the battle. Realising they alone did not have the strength to defeat Kokomon, they called upon all their energy, and Digivolved into their own Mega stages. Angewomon Digivolved to Magnadramon, and released the Digi-Egg of Destiny (see Golden Digi-Eggs) before being cut down by Kokomon and reverted to Gatomon. Kokomon was subsequently defeated by Magnamon and Rapidmon (Note that this appearance, which occurred in "Digimon: The Movie" is actually supposed to be out of continuity with the rest of the series, but was shoe-horned in by the American translators, and must be included here. However, take note that Angewomon's ability to Digivolve to Magnadramon is solely confined to the movie, and does not impact on the rest of the series. The fact that it is out of continuity is explanation as to why Angewomon is able to appear when Gatomon has lost the ability to go Ultimate).
Some time later, Gennai was able to give all the original eight Digimon a power boost with Azulongmon's Digi-Core, restoring their ability to Digivolve to Ultimate. Angewomon and MegaKabuterimon then went with Kari and Izzy to China, as the other DigiDestined headed off to other spots around the world to round up rogue Digimon, where they met the Poi Brothers, and then had help from them and their Digimon in getting another group of Digimon across the India/China border.
Angewomon and Kari returned to Odaiba to meet up with the other DigiDestined, only to discover that an evil Digimon named Daemon had come to Earth with his minions in search of Ken and the Dark Spore within him. Angewomon and the other Ultimates battled SkullSatamon, but he defeated them all. In order to give Imperialdramon the power to defeat him, Gatomon and the other original Digimon gave up the power to go Ultimate once more, which Imperialdramon used to Mode Change to Fighter Mode and destroy SkullSatamon.
When they were trapped in the dream dimension of MaloMyotismon. Kari and the other DigiDestined used the mystic nature of the dimension to make their dreams come true, and Gatomon separated into all her forms - Gatomon, Angewomon, Nefertimon and Silphymon joined with all the other stages to battle MaloMyotismon, but when he crossed the border to the DigiWorld, only the "real" incarnation of Gatomon could cross over, and so Silphymon went across, while the Angewomon avatar faded away.
Three months later, when it was discovered that Diaboromon had survived his battle with Omnimon four years beforehand, Angewomon and Angemon aided Omnimon in battling him once more. The two angels seized the villain, holding him so Omnimon could destroy him. However, he lived on as millions of Kuramon, which entered the real world and became Armageddemon, who was destroyed by Imperialdramon Paladin Mode. Strangely, in this adventure, Angewomon was animated many times larger than her normal size. Also, given that Agumon and Gabumon were able to form Omnimon, and that Gatomon was able to become Angewomon, it's evident that the Digimon's power to Digivolve to Ultimate and beyond has been restored at this point.
Angewomon first appears in "Wizardmon's Gift." Her voice is supplied by Edie Mirman.
Name: Derived from the English word, "angel," and the "wo" is from "woman."

Ankylomon is the Digivolved form of Armadillomon, the Digimon partner of Cody of the DigiDestined. Armadillomon first Digivolved into Ankylomon to protect Cody from Thundermon, who they encountered while tunnelling underground during the kids' rebuilding chores. The battle made its way up to ground level, but then Thundermon was destroyed by Stingmon. In this first appearance, Ankylomon was gigantic, but when he appeared later, he was always much smaller.
Ankylomon appeared again to help the other Champions battle Okuwamon. Later, they were all seen destroying more Control Spires, and then Ankylomon appeared again to battle the insectoid inhabitants of the Giga House, and BlackWarGreymon. Ankylomon then popped up in the aftermath of Silphymon's battle with Blossomon, and then again to help battle Knightmon to prevent him from destroying the first Destiny Stone, and again, to help stop BlackWarGreymon from destroying another stone, although they failed both times. When battling to protect the final Destiny Stone from BlackWarGreymon, Ankylomon and Angemon were finally able to DNA Digivolve to Shakkoumon, and hold of BlackWarGreymon, until Azulongmon emerged from the final stone and stopped the battle. Ankylomon appeared again during the battle at Christmas to DNA Digivolve with Angemon again.
Ankylomon took part in the battle with SkullSatamon, but was easily beaten along with the other Champions and Ultimates, but Imperialdramon managed to defeat the villain by Mode Changing to his Fighter Mode. Ankylomon then DNA Digivolved with Angemon to fight MarineDevimon, and then the evil Daemon himself, and send him into the World of Darkness with help from the other DNA Digivolved Digimon. Ankylomon was then present when the kids arrived in MaloMyotismon's dream dimension. After the kids defeated the illusions MaloMyotismon subjected them to, Armadillomon and all the other Digimon Digivolved into their separate forms at once, and Armadillomon, Ankylomon, Digmon, Submarimon and Shakkoumon joined with all the other stages to battle MaloMyotismon, but when he crossed the border to the DigiWorld, only the "real" incarnation of Armadillomon could cross over, and so Shakkoumon went across, while the Ankylomon avatar faded away.
Ankylomon first appears in "If I had a Tail Hammer." His voice is supplied by Robert Axelrod.
Name - from "ankylosaurus," a type of dinosaur.
Anna is one of the three Russian DigiDestined, partnered with a Unimon, who helped Yolei and Sora dispatch a horde of Flymon and Mammothmon back to the DigiWorld. Anna appeared again when MaloMyotismon threatened to infect both Earth and the DigiWorld with darkness.
Anna appears in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 3" and "A Million Points of Light."

Antylamon is the Ultimate form of Kokomon, the estranged Digimon partner of Willis, a DigiDestined from Colorado. Antylamon appeared when Endigomon Digivolved to battle Gargomon and the other DigiDestined's Armour Digimon, cutting a swathe through them, smashing the Armours into and through cliffsides, and skimming Gargomon out across a lake. When he was surrounded by them, he sank beneath the waters of the late, and emerged in his Mega form of Kerpymon. Things looked bleak, until Veemon and Terriermon used the power of the Golden Digi-Eggs to become Magnamon and Rapidmon, and destroyed the virus within Kerpymon. Kerpymon reverted to his Vaccine form, and then deleted, but not long after, he was reconfigured as a Digi-Egg.
Antylamon appears in "Digimon: The Movie," but is not referred to by name - like all his forms, he is just referred to as "Kokomon."
Many changes were made to the portion of the movie in which Kokomon appears in the American version. Check out the "Kokomon" and "Willis" entries to read more about these.
Name: A corruption of his Japanese name, "Antiramon," which comes from "Antira," one of the twelve Devas from Sanskrit.

Apemon appeared in the city of Kyoto along with Musyamon, following BlackWarGreymon. Yolei and Ken were present there, and in the ensuing battle, Stingmon hurled Apemon back into the DigiWorld through the gate they had used to enter in the nearby river.
When MaloMyotismon was infecting the Earth with darkness, an Asian DigiDestined named Yuehon called out "Apemon!" when holding her Digivice to the sky - she obviously had an Apemon for a Digimon partner, and an Apemon was seen amongst all the other Digimon present at the time.
An Apemon first appears in "A Chance Encounter." For some inexplicable reason, he spoke with a French accent, with a voice supplied by Richard Epcar.
Name: From "ape."
