"THE CAPTIVE DIGIMON"
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #10
English version written by Seth Walther
The Digimon Emperor proves unable to control Agumon with just a Dark Ring, and so creates the more-powerful Dark Spiral. Wormmon secretly frees Agumon, hoping that the Emperor will then allow him to fight in his place, but the Emperor instead seeks out Agumon and manages to capture him again, using the Dark Spiral to Dark Digivolve him into a viral version of MetalGreymon!
Catherine is the DigiDestined from France, who is partnered with a Floramon. Tai, T.K. and T.K.'s grandfather arrived at the Palace of Versailles in search of the Digimon who had come to France via a Digi-Port opened by Arukenimon, and found Catherine and Floramon being held captive by Mamemon, BigMamemon, MetalMamemon and Giromon. Catherine and Floramon were freed during the ensuing battle, and Floramon Digivolved into Kiwimon to help MetalGreymon and MagnaAngemon defeat their opponents. The Mamemons and Giromon were returned to the DigiWorld, and T.K. and Tai then both kissed Catherine in celebration.
Catherine reappeared when the Digimon of the world's DigiDestined united against MaloMyotismon.
Catherine appears in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2" and "A Million Points of Light." Her voice is supplied by Philece Sampler.

The first Centarumon the kids met was encountered by Izzy and Mimi, while under the influence of a Black Gear. The kids had all been separated by Devimon, and sent to separate chunks of the shattered File Island. Chuumon and Sukamon led Mimi and Palmon to Izzy and Tentomon, who had discovered a huge temple enscripted with hieroglyphics much like those in Andromon's factory, which had so interested Izzy previously. Izzy was so engrossed in using his computer to translate the inscriptions that he began unconsciously ignoring Mimi, to the extent that she ran off crying. Tentomon followed her, and they both ran into Centarumon, the temple's guardian, who had become infected with a Black Gear. Izzy was able to guide them through the maze-like temple, and Tentomon and Palmon Digivolved to Kabuterimon and Togemon to take out the gear. Centarumon explained that the temple had been built to honour the DigiDestined, and bore the symbol of the Digivice - the small digital apparatus that the kids had found before being teleported to the DigiWorld. Centarumon knew this meant that the kids were very important to the sanctity of the DigiWorld, but before he could explain any more, Leomon, infected with another Black Gear, attacked! Centarumon was no match for him, but beams of light that radiated from Mimi and Izzy's Digivices caused him pain, forcing him to retreat. Mimi then gave a large Black Gear sticking out of the ground a kick, causing it to rotate in the opposite direction, sending the chunk of File Island back towards Infinity Mountain. Much later, Centarumon located the ancient "Wall of Fire" that the prophecy in his temple spoke of. He immediately called in Gennai, who tried to warn the kids that the prophecy was nearing fulfilment - but before he could, they were attacked by Apocalymon, the creature who had come from beyond the Wall of Fire.
After Apocalymon's defeat, Centarumon appeared to congratulate the kids.
This Centarumon first appears in "A Clue From The Digi-Past." His voice is supplied by Bob Pappenbrook.
Four years later, when Digimon were rampaging on Earth after Arukenimon opened all the Digi-Ports, Davis, Mimi and Michael were aided in battle against a Cherrymon by an American DigiDestined named Maria, and her partner Digimon, a Centarumon. This Centarumon appeared again when MaloMyotismon was infecting Earth with darkness.
This Centarumon appeared in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 1" and "A Million Points of Light."
Name: Derived from the word "Centaur," a half-man, half-horse creature from Greek mythology.
Champion level Digimon Digivolve from Rookie Digimon. For one of the DigiDestined's Digimon to Digivolve to Champion, they require their Digivice. Originally, the holder had to be in peril, but as time progressed, the kids and the Digimon gained more control over the process, allowing it to happen whenever they needed. For other Digimon to attain the Champion stage, they must grow into it naturally.
"A CHANCE ENCOUNTER"
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #33
English version written by Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
In the city of Kyoto, Yolei and Ken discover BlackWarGreymon, and fight Apemon and Musyamon, who have followed him through to Earth. Before anything else can happen, BlackWarGreymon simply disappears, teleporting himself back to the DigiWorld.

The first Cherrymon encountered by the kids was a minion of the Dark Master, Puppetmon. When T.K. initially escaped from the clutches of Puppetmon, Matt began to doubt his purpose as part of the DigiDestined and wandered off with Gabumon to be alone. While in the forest, Matt was approached by Cherrymon, as per Puppetmon's instructions. With trickery, he managed to make Matt believe that he was unable to grow as a person because of Tai, and convinced him that he had to fight and defeat him. Initially, Matt was wary of the tree-like Digimon, and Gabumon told him to follow his heart. Matt's Crest regained it's previously-lost glow, and Gabumon Digivolved to MetalGarurumon, promising to stand by Matt no matter what he decided. Cherrymon had been successful - Matt headed off to fight Tai. Cherrymon then informed Puppetmon of this, but warned him to be careful in battling the kids. Puppetmon, enraged that Cherrymon doubted his abilities, used his Puppet Pummel attack to destroy him.
It is possible that when Apocalymon was defeated and the DigiWorld was reformatted to normalcy that Cherrymon was reborn as a Digi-Egg in the same manner that the other deceased Digimon were.
This Cherrymon first appeared in "Trash Day," and was also destroyed in this episode, although he appeared again in a flashback in "Ogremon's Honor." His voice is supplied by Jeff Nimoy.
Four years later, when Digimon were rampaging on Earth after Arukenimon opened all the Digi-Ports, a Cherrymon appeared in New York. While being led to the rendezvous point by Phil, it became enraged by the sight of the Rockafeller Centre Christmas tree lighting up, and attacked it. It could not be convinced to stop, and had to be battled by Davis, Mimi, Michael and their Digimon, and then defeated with help from the other American DigiDestined.
This Cherrymon appeared in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 1." Its voice was also supplied by Jeff Nimoy.
Name: Derived from the English word, "cherry," a fruit which grows on trees.

Chibomon is the Baby stage of Veemon, the Digimon partner of Davis of the DigiDestined. Chibomon appeared for the first time after ExVeemon and Stingmon DNA Digivolved into Paildramon, and then separated upon reverting. After a good night's sleep, Chibomon Digivolved back into DemiVeemon. Then, Chibomon appeared after Paildramon separated after the first battle with Arukenimon and Mummymon, and after BlackWarGreymon defeated Paildramon during the DigiDestined first battle with him. Chibomon appeared consistently when Paildramon separated - his last appearance was after the battle at Christmas.
Chibomon first appears in "Fusion Confusion." His voice is supplied by Dina Sherman.
Name: While it may immediately appear to be derived from "chibi," the Japanese term meaning small, it's actually a corruption of his Japanese name, "Chicomon," which may come from the Spanish word "chico," meaning "small."
The strongest metal in the DigiWorld, from which MetalSeadramon's armour, MetalEtemon's armour, Zudomon's hammer and possibly WarGreymon's Dramon Destroyers are fashioned.

Chuumon is the partner of Sukamon, because they share one tiny brain between both of them. They first appeared when Mimi and Palmon were stranded in the forest on a chunk of the broken-up File Island by Devimon, and attempted to get Mimi to pay a toll to pass through the forest. Sukamon and Chuumon both developed some peculiar kind of crush on Mimi, but obviously, she was having none of it. When they tried to grab her purse, her Digivice glowed brightly, and suddenly, Sukamon and Chuumon were nice guys! They quickly led her to Izzy.
Chuumon and Sukamon next appeared as part of the group of Digimon recruited by DemiDevimon to be part of Myotismon's army. However, with Nanimon as their boss, they soon grew fed up - as did all the others who were under his command. Palmon and Agumon, having disguised themselves and infiltrated the castle, took advice from Sukamon and Chuumon, and were able to inebriate Nanimon with soda. Or alcohol, in the original Japanese version. They quickly left.
The DigiDestined kids then returned to the real world to stop Myotismon's plans for conquest, and Sukamon and Chuumon went back to File Island. However, in the years that passed in the DigiWorld while the kids were in the real world for a few days, a new power arose - the Dark Masters, four Mega level Digimon, took over the DigiWorld and reconstituted it into the massive Spiral Mountain. In the chaos of the reformatting, Sukamon fell into a chasm and died. Chuumon was left alone, until the DigiDestined returned, and were filled in on the situation by him. The kids were then pulled into battle with the four evil Digimon, and were defeated. The leader, Piedmon, was about to kill Mimi, when Chuumon leapt in front of his attack, sacrificing himself to save her.
After the Dark Masters and Apocalymon were defeated, all the Digimon who had died were reborn as Digi-Eggs at Primary Village - including Chuumon - to start life anew.
Four years later, Chuumon, having been reborn, appeared briefly after the new DigiDestined defeated the Dark Spiral-possessed Digitamamon, with Sukamon, to ask Mimi out on a date. She retaliated by punching the duo over the horizon.
A Chuumon and Sukamon were seen in New York when Digimon were appeared on Earth, and were sent back to the DigiWorld. Whether or not they were the same Chuumon and Sukamon is unknown, but with Mimi in the city, it's pretty likely.
Chuumon first appears in "A Clue From The Digi-Past." In this episode, his voice is supplied by Dave Mallow. In "The Gateway To Home" and "Enter The Dark Masters" (in which he died), his voice is supplied by Doug Erholtz.
Name: From the Japanese word, "chuuchuu," being the noise a mouse makes.
"CITY UNDER SIEGE"
Digimon Adventure episode #3
English version written by R.D. Chamberlain and Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
Myotismon tries to use Gatomon to identify the Eighth Child, but then Kari comes forward and gives herself up to end the chaos, as meanwhile, Zudomon appears for the first time to save Joe and T.K. from MegaSeadramon.
"A CLUE FROM THE DIGI-PAST"
Digimon Adventure episode #10
English version written by R.D. Chamberlain and Sean Abley.
Mimi meets up with Sukamon and Chuumon, who take her to Izzy, who has uncovered a strange temple that might give them some clues about the DigiWorld - but first they have to deal with the Black Gear-infected Centarumon!
Episode Trivia This episode sees Mimi make the erroneous dub reference to her baby brother, who does not exist.
Cody Hida is one of the DigiDestined, partnered with Armadillomon, and holder of the Digi-Eggs of Knowledge and Reliability. Cody is the youngest of the new DigiDestined, but is wise beyond his years - a lot of his wisdom gets from his grandfather, who also teaches him the Japanese martial art of Kendo. But Cody's connection to Digimon and the DigiWorld actually began long before he was born.
As a boy, Cody's father, Hiroki Hida, was best friends with Yukio Oikawa, a lonely boy who had no other friends. Somehow, Hiroki and Oikawa were in communication with the DigiWorld via Hiroki's video game system - Hiroki himself may have had a Digimon, as Oikawa had one named Datirimon. However, Cody's grandfather - Hiroki's father - decided that they were spending too much time "playing video games" - which was all he thought they were doing - and put a stop to it. Hiroki and Oikawa remained friends - they apparently worked on a project of some kind together until they were young men (which may or may not have cumulated in the creation of Arukenimon). However, Hiroki had got married, had a son - Cody - and become a policeman in his adulthood, and got in the line of fire during an assassination attempt on an important political figure. Hiroki died, and Oikawa was left utterly alone in the world.
Cody, still only very young, continued to live with his mother and grandfather. When the DigiWorld appeared in the sky after the destruction of the villainous VenomMyotismon in Tokyo in 1999, Cody, his mother and his grandfather were on board the plane that came into contact with the warp, and was saved from crashing by Garudamon and MegaKabuterimon. It was then than Cody saw his first Digimon.
In the original planning packet, Cody was one of the children brought before Myotismon during his invasion of Odaiba, but this was later changed.
Four years later, Cody and his friend Yolei encountered T.K. of the original eight DigiDestined in their apartment building - T.K. and his mother had just moved in, and the three of them walked to school together. Meanwhile, however, in the DigiWorld, the evil Digimon Emperor had begun his conquest, and Agumon summoned Tai to help. Tai found the Digi-Egg of Courage, but when he touched it, three new Digivices emerged from it, and travelled into the real world, to be recieved by Cody, Yolei and Davis - the new DigiDestined.
The next day, Izzy and Sora accompanied the new DigiDestined into the DigiWorld, but Davis and Veemon were captured by the Emperor. Cody and Yolei found their first Digi-Eggs, and met their Digimon partners, Armour Digivolving them to help free Davis and Veemon.
A little later, Cody began to fear that he was letting the team down, but his grandfather convinced him that all he had to do was try his hardest, and that way, he wasn't letting anyone down. Cody arrived a little late as the team headed off to the DigiWorld, with Joe in tow, to answer a distress call from Gomamon. In the ensuing scuffle with some Frigimon, Cody took a tumble into a freezing river, but Gomamon fished him out, and Joe took care of him. The Emperor then attacked with Shellmon and Ebidramon, but Digmon and Ikkakumon defeated them, and Cody ended the adventure by properly introducing himself to Joe.
Cody was present on all the team's adventures together, telling everyone about his experience on the plane and seeing his first Digimon when the team met Michael. Later, Cody and the others were trapped in an offshore oil platform by MegaSeadramon, and Cody had to overcome his fear of the sea to use a submersible to get help from Joe. Ikkakumon arrived and battled MegaSeadramon, and, with some convincing from Joe, activated the newly-uncovered Digi-Egg of Reliability, allowing Armadillomon to Armour Digivolve to Submarimon to help defeat MegaSeadramon.
Shortly thereafter, Cody and Submarimon located the Digimon Emperor's fortress, and made their way inside to help free the Emperor's captives. After the ensuing battles with Kimeramon, Cody and the others finally made the Emperor understand that Digimon are living creatures. Stunned, the Emperor collapsed in tears of self-disgust, and reverted back to his true persona of Ken Ichijouji.
However, Cody could not forgive Ken for what he had done. When the DigiDestined were rebuilding a Punimon village, Cody and Digmon were at work underground, but were attacked by Thundermon. Digmon reverted to Armadillomon, and then Digivolved into Ankylomon to try and drive Thundermon away, as Cody did not want him to fight. Cody was swept up in a hail of rock from the little Digimon's attack, but was saved by a mysterious Digimon... who was revealed to be Stingmon, the Digivolved form of Wormmon, Ken's Digimon partner. Cody could not understand why Ken had saved him, but still thought no different of him. When Davis suggested they call on Ken to help them deal with the reactor of his old fortress, which threatened to explode, Cody protested, but Ken came anyway, and Paildramon defeated Okuwamon - created by Arukenimon to stop them - and the reactor.
When Ken, Davis and Cody were attacked by insectoid Digimon in the Giga House, Cody and Submarimon saved Ken from a watery fate in a giant washing machine - but he explained he was merely evening the score.
When Davis and Ken, and then Kari and Yolei were shown to be DNA Digivolving partners, Cody knew that he and T.K. had to be partners. However, lately, T.K. had been acting oddly violent and angry - but soon, Cody understood why. The powers of darkness had returned in the form of BlackWarGreymon - also created by Arukenimon and Mummymon - who was destroying the Destiny Stones. The powers of darkness had already taken Angemon from T.K. once, and he feared it would happen again. Cody attempted to talk sense into BlackWarGreymon, but while the misguided Digimon did not listen, he did Cody no harm. When Cody finally understood T.K.'s motives, Angemon and Ankylomon DNA Digivolved into Shakkoumon for the first time.
Over time, Cody's hatred of Ken began to fade, and at Christmas, he accepted Ken's invitation to his Christmas party. Then, he, Armadillomon, Joe and Gomamon headed to Australia, as the other DigiDestined travelled to other parts of the world, to round up the wild Digimon who had appeared on Earth as a result of Arukenimon opening all the Digi-Ports. There, they met an Australian DigiDestined named Derek, and his Crabmon Digivolved into Coelamon to help Submarimon and Zudomon deal with the aquatic Digimon there and send them back to the DigiWorld.
Cody and Joe returned to Odaiba to find that an evil Digimon named Daemon and his minions had come to Earth in search of Ken and the Dark Spore within him. Shakkoumon battled MarineDevimon at a hospital, as T.K., Cody and Jim Kido helped a disabled girl get to safety. Shakkoumon's only option was to destroy MarineDevimon, shocking and upsetting Cody. Cody then showed his friendship to Ken along with everyone else to open a gate to the World of Darkness, through which Daemon was sent.
Soon thereafter, Oikawa, who had already copied Ken's Dark Spore and implanted it in other children, learned that Cody was the son of his old friend Hiroki. When he tried to use the children, Spores and Key Cards to open the portal to the DigiWorld, he wound up in another dimension, where the truth came out - the spirit of Myotismon had been inside him for the last four years, controlling his actions. Myotismon emerged, and used the power of the Spores to become MaloMyotismon, before destroying Arukenimon and Mummymon. MaloMyotismon then subjected the kids to illusions of their greatest desires - for Cody, it was his father being alive again, and Cody being able to show him the digital world. Armadillomon appeared to explain how it wasn't real, and Flamedramon appeared to take him back to the other kids, who were in the process of breaking free of their illusions. Cody and the others then used the power of the dream dimension against MaloMyotismon, making their own dreams come true, and letting all their Digimon Digivolve to all their different stages at once. MaloMyotismon fled to the DigiWorld, but the kids followed. As he tried to infect Earth with pure darkness, the power of dreams, and Imperialdramon's Giga Crusher attack - powered with the energy of the Digivices of all the world's DigiDestined - destroyed him for good.
Cody went back into the dream dimension to recover the fallen Oikawa, dragging him to the edge of the portal, when Datirimon appeared, and Oikawa was reunited with him. However, MaloMyotismon had taken too much of Oikawa's energy - and, using the dream dimension to fulfil a dream of his own, Oikawa's body deleted in Cody's arms, and the digital particles transformed into a host of butterflies, which spread across the DigiWorld, restoring peace and beauty to it.
Three months later, it was discovered that Diaboromon had survived his battle with Omnimon four years beforehand, and had spent the time in between reproducing as millions of Kuramon. Cody was in Kendo practise when he was called by Izzy and learned of this. The Kuramon were appearing in the real world by transmitting themselve through e-mail, so while Tai, Matt and Omnimon battled Diaboromon on the 'net, the other kids were set on the trail of the Kuramon - Cody and T.K. located one at a soccer game, and sent it to Izzy to deal with. T.K., Kari and their Digimon entered the 'net and helped Omnimon defeat Diaboromon, but then the Kuramon all entered the real world, and gathered in Tokyo Harbour, where Cody and Yolei watched as they became Armageddemon. When Imperialdramon Paladin Mode defeated Armageddemon, the villain split into Kuramon again, and it was Cody who hit upon the idea for everyone to use their Digivices and cell phones to capture them.
25 years into the future, the portal to the DigiWorld remains open, and Armadillomon remains at Cody's side. Cody is now a high-class defence lawyer - he is married, and has a daughter (Nothing was said of his wife, but many have theorised she may be the disabled girl he helped rescue previously).
Cody first appears in "Enter Flamedramon." His voice is supplied by Philece Sampler.
"CODY TAKES A STAND"
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #35
English version written by Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
BlackWarGreymon destroys another Destiny Stone, and Cody learns about T.K.'s hatred for evil. The DigiDestined try to hide the next Destiny Stone, but despite help from Dolphmon, MegaSeadramon and Ikkakumon, and Cody's attempt to talk BlackWarGreymon down, the Stone is destroyed.
Group: Ancient Fish - Level: Champion - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Fossil Bite, Ancient Bite
Coelamon is the Digivolved form of Crabmon, the Digimon partner of Derek, the DigiDestined from Australia. Crabmon Digivolved to Coelamon to help Zudomon and Submarimon defeat a Scorpiomon and some other aquatic Digimon, who were then returned to the DigiWorld. Coelamon then used his Fossil Bite attack to destroy the last Control Spire in Australia.
Coelamon appears in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2." His voice is supplied by Joe Ochman.
Name: From "coelacanth," a type of prehistoric fish, which still lives on today. However, while "coelacanth" is pronounced "Sell-ah-kanth," "Coelamon" is pronounced "Ko-el-a-mon." We must take this pronunciation to be canon, although it is not literally correct.
The Control Spires are creations of the Digimon Emperor, erected all across the DigiWorld. When powered up, they project an energy field with prevents Digimon from Digivolving normally. Armour Digivolving is not affected by this process, and apparently neither is DNA Digivolving. The Emperor used the mechanisms in his base to broadcast the power of his Dark Digivice to the Spires, which in turn sent power to the Dark Rings in their immediate vicinity.
The first time the new kids actually acknowledged the existence of a Control Spire, and realised what it could do, was when they were trying to free the village of Santa Caria from the Emperor's control. Veemon goaded RedVegiemon into cracking the Spire, damaging it enough so it no longer worked, and Gabumon Digivolved into Garurumon to destroy it.
The Emperor continued to erect Spires, at a faster rate than the DigiDestined could destroy them, even with help from the older DigiDestined, Joe and Mimi. When Ken Ichijouji - the Emperor's human identity - ran away from home to live in the DigiWorld and be the Emperor permanently, he set up Spires faster than ever. A Spire was even seen in the World of Darkness - but there is question as to quite how and when the Emperor erected it there - if erect it he truly did (see below).
When the Emperor was restored to his true self, his Digivice ceased supplying power to the Control Spires, and the Digimon were able to Digivolve into Champion in their presence to destroy them. However, a mysterious woman began to appear to plague the team, somehow having the ability to power up dormant Control Spires and being able to convert them into unliving Digimon. The DigiDestined had no qualms about destroying them, however, as they were not really Digimon. The mystery woman created Thundermon, Golemon and Minotarumon from Spires, and then later combined a large number of towers together to create Okuwamon. Shortly thereafter, her identity was revealed - she was Arukenimon, a female, spider-like Digimon who could transform into a human shape.
Arukenimon and her partner, Mummymon, then combined one hundred Control Spires together to create BlackWarGreymon - but the leftover programs within the Spires merged together, and had an adverse side-effect, giving BlackWarGreymon an individual mind, with thoughts and feelings. He refused to follow Arukenimon's orders, and trekked across the DigiWorld, being drawn by the power of Azulongmon, one of the four guardians of the DigiWorld. BlackWarGreymon destroyed the powerful Destiny Stones, freeing Azulongmon from the prison the Dark Masters had held him in. He and the other guardians had been unable to free themselves because of the energy fields from the Control Spires. Azulongmon explained to BlackWarGreymon that everything has a purpose in life, and BlackWarGreymon set off to find his.
Then, Control Spires began to appear all across the face of the Earth on Christmas Eve, and the kids' Christmas party was cut short. Arukenimon had powered up a Spire in Odaiba, so no-one could Digivolve until it was destroyed, but she had also opened all the Digi-Ports, allowing wild Digimon to come to Earth and cause havoc in different countries, providing a distraction so she and Mummymon could kidnap children in Japan, while the DigiDestined had to go all around the world to destroy the Spires and send the Digimon back where they came from. None of the Spires were powered up, however, so the Digimon could Digivolve to easily destroy them.
Inured in battle with Oikawa, the human creator of Arukenimon and Mummymon, and dying, BlackWarGreymon used the last of his strength to seal up the portal to the DigiWorld, as the Control Spires which formed the substance of his body were used as a seal to close the rift between Earth and the DigiWorld - and this was BlackWarGreymon's purpose that he had so long searched for.
Oikawa later commented that the Control Spires were "a present from the Dark Ocean" - this makes it clear that Ken did not originate their design, and perhaps the one seen in the World of Darkness by Kari and T.K. was in fact the original Spire which gave Ken the idea to build them (see "World of Darkness" entry for more information). Oikawa went on to explain that the main function of the Spires - their true purpose - was not to inhibit Digivolving, or to bind Azulongmon, but to actually weaken the barriers between the real world and the DigiWorld, to allow him access to it. Able to open a gate to the DigiWorld, but unable to enter it personally, he created Arukenimon and Mummymon, and sent them into the DigiWorld, but seeing them there only made him want to go more, so he hit upon the idea of using the Spires to allow him access. When the DigiDestined stopped Ken, that plan was rendered useless, and the Spires were left deactivated to be turned into unliving Digimon by Arukenimon.
Control Spires first appear in "Enter Flamedramon." They are not acknowledged by the DigiDestined, or referred to by name, until "Iron Vegiemon."
COURAGE, CREST OF
The Crest of Courage is held by Tai, leader of the DigiDestined. Tai found his Crest in a cave, disguised as a rock wall, while the kids were fleeing from their first battle with Etemon. Tai thought that because he was the only kid to have a Crest, he had to be responsible for everyone, and tried to make Greymon Digivolve to a higher level using it. However, Tai hadn't mastered true courage, so his Crest didn't glow. When Tai tried to force the process, it became corrupted, and Greymon became SkullGreymon. Fortunately, his energy expired before he could harm the kids. It wasn't until Tai displayed true courage in rescuing Sora from Datamon and standing up to Etemon that his crest glowed, allowing Greymon to become MetalGreymon, who went on to finish of Etemon with his Giga Blaster attack.
The Crest of Courage, like all the other kids' crests, was destroyed by Apocalymon, but then Tai realised that it didn't have the power - he did, and it had been inside him all along.
At some point during the next four years, Tai gave up the powers associated with the Crest of Courage, as the other kids did with their Crests, to seal the DigiWorld off from evil, rendering Agumon unable to Digivolve to the Ultimate level.
The Crest of Courage first appeared in "The Dark Network of Etemon." It was destroyed in "Now Apocalymon."
COURAGE, DIGI-EGG OF
The Digi-Egg of Courage belongs to Davis of the DigiDestined, and is used on Veemon to Armour Digivolve him into Flamedramon. It was discovered by Tai upon his return to the DigiWorld, when he was summoned by Agumon to help battle against the Digimon Emperor. Despite bearing the symbol of his own Crest, Tai was unable to lift the Digi-Egg of Courage, but when he touched it, three new Digivices emerged from it, and travelled into the real world, where they were received by Davis, Yolei and Cody. Davis then accompanied T.K. and Kari into the DigiWorld in response to a distress call from Tai, and proved to be the only one who would lift the Digi-Egg of Courage. When the Egg was moved, a beam of energy emerged from beneath it, out of which leapt Veemon. When the group was attacked by a Monochromon under the control of the Emperor, Davis used his courage to open the Digi-Egg, allowing Veemon to Armour Digivolve to Flamedramon to defeat it.
The Digi-Egg of Courage was then stored within Davis's D-Terminal, and was called on whenever Veemon needed to Armour Digivolve, by means of the D-Terminal releasing its energy into Davis's D-3. Towards the end of the year, when the kids were drawn into MaloMyotismons dream dimension, Davis used the power of this other world to make a dream of their own come true and Veemon Digivolved into all his different forms at once. The Digi-Egg of Courage transformed into Flamedramon, who helped to save Cody from his illusion, but when all the Digimon attempted to pass through the portal, only the real incarnation of Veemon could go through, while Flamedramon avatar faded away.
The Digi-Egg of Courage first appears in "Enter Flamedramon." Its not clear if the fact that the Flamedramon avatar faded away means that the Digi-Egg of Courage ceased to exist, but its very likely, given that the Japanese title for the episode was "The Last Armour Evolution."
Group: Crustacean - Level: Rookie - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Scissors Attack, Crab Meat Bomber
Crabmon is the Digimon partner of Derek, the DigiDestined from Australia. While they were both out windsurfing, Derek and Crabmon were attacked by an Ebidramon, a Shellmon and a Gesomon, but made it to shore safely, where they met up with Joe, Cody and their Digimon. Crabmon then Digivolved into Coelamon to help Zudomon and Submarimon battle and defeat a Scorpiomon. Crabmon, along with the Digimon of all the world's DigiDestined, appeared again when MaloMyotismon was infected Earth with darkness.
Crabmon first appears in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2." His voice is supplied by Joe Ochman.
Name: From "crab," a sea-dwelling crustacean.
A small artefact that is inserted behind the plastic window on the crest-owner's Tag. The Crests symbolise the holder's greatest attribute, and endow the Digimon of the holders the ability to Digivolve to the Ultimate level.
The Crests were created by a mysterious group charged with protecting the DigiWorld, four Earth years before the events that brought the kids to the DigiWorld. When the young children witnessed a battle between a Greymon and Parrotmon at Highton View Terrace, the group chose them to be the new DigiDestined, and created their Crests after scanning them with a beam that recorded their traits. A brutal attack by the Dark Masters left the group dead, and Piedmon managed to steal the Crests - despite the efforts of the sole survivor Gennai, who took the Digi-Eggs and Digivices that had also been created, and hid them on File Island. It is not clear exactly how after this the Crests came to be spread out over Server, not how Devimon came into possession of the Tags.
Tai's is the Crest of Courage, Sora's is the Crest of Love, Matt's is the Crest of Friendship, Izzy's is the Crest of Knowledge, Mimi's is the Crest of Sincerity, Joe's is the Crest of Reliability, TK's is the Crest of Hope and Kari's is the Crest of Light. The Crests were instrumental in defeating VenomMyotismon, but during the kids' battle with Apocalymon, the Crests and Tags were destroyed, and the kids' digital bodies were deleted. As their data floated around in limbo, the kids realised that it wasn't the Crests that had the power - it had been inside them all along. They were able to reconstitute their digital bodies, and then turned Apocalymon's Total Annihilation attack against him, destroying him.
At some point during the next four years, after the battle with Diaboromon, the kids were called back to the DigiWorld by Gennai, and had to give up the powers associated with their Crests, to create an energy shield to seal the DigiWorld off from evil. Doing this left their Digimon unable to Digivolve to the Ultimate level (however, this power was later restored by Azulongmon's Digi-Core, and sacrificed again to power up Imperialdramon). Azulongmon and the other guardians of the DigiWorld then created Digi-Eggs with the same traits as the Crests for the new DigiDestined.
Gennai first tells the kids of the Crests in "Departure for a New Continent." The first Crest to be found is the Crest of Courage, in "The Dark Network of Etemon."
