Digitamamon refused to accept this currency from Joe, but four years later, demanded it from Yolei. There's a mistake here - in the original version of "Weregarurumon's Diner," Digitamamon wanted American dollars, but Joe only had Japanese yen, and so could not pay. And in "The Samurai of Sincerity," he still wanted American dollars - Yolei could not pay with her yen, but Michael was able to pay for them because he's American, and hence had dollars. The two uses of the dub-created Digi-Dollars had them represent a different currency from the original each time - and quite where Joe would have even got Digi-Dollars from is a mystery.
The earliest Digivolutionary stage of a Digimon. The eggs hatch into Baby stage Digimon, and are kept and nurtured in Primary Village by Elecmon. Four years before the DigiDestined of our generation came to the DigiWorld, an Digi-Egg made it's made to Earth via the computer of Tai and Kari Kamiya, and hatched. The Digimon that emerged eventually Digivolved into a Greymon, and battled Parrotmon to protect Tai and Kari. It was as a result of this that the DigiDestined for our generation were chosen. The mysterious group charged with the DigiWorld's protection then manufactured eight Digi-Eggs, grooming them to be the Digimon of the DigiDestined, but a brutal attack by the Dark Masters left the group dead - save for Gennai, who took the eggs and hid them on File Island.
At the same time as the battle between Greymon and Parrotmon, on the other side of the world, in Colorado, America, a Digi-Egg appeared on the computer of a young boy named Willis, and hatched into twin Digimon, named Gummymon and Kokomon. Willis thought it would "be cool" to have more Digimon, so over the next four years, he tried to make his own Digi-Egg on his computer. However, before it could hatch, it was attacked by a virus, and mutated into Diaboromon.
Digi-Eggs first appeared in "DigiBaby Boom."
The Digi-Eggs were created by Azulongmon and the other guardians of the DigiWorld for the new DigiDestined, so they could Armour Digivolve their new Digimon and bypass the Digimon Emperor's Control Spires. Each Digi-Egg embodies the traits of the original eight Crests of the DigiDestined - Courage and Friendship (held by Davis), Love and Sincerity (held by Yolei), Knowledge and Reliability (held by Cody), Hope (held by T.K.) and Light (held by Kari) - and are stored within the respective DigiDestined's D-Terminal. In the Armour Digivolving process, the Digi-Egg transforms into a suit of armour to be worn by the Digimon in question.

An acronym for Digital Monsters, Digimon are the creatures that populate the DigiWorld. While the DigiWorld is a physical manifestation of the interlinked communications network of Earth, Digimon themselves are more than that - created out of a combination of data from that network, and given shape, form and life by the thoughts, dreams, stories, spiritual beliefs and more of huamnkind. This merging is made possible through the power of a dimension that borders the DigiWorld, possessing the ability to transform thought into reality - a power that the DigiWorld holds a small fraction of. It would be Professor Haruhiko Takenouchi who would form the first theories that connected Digimon's origins to human belief and myth.
Digimon can be classified into three types - Data, Virus or Vaccine - and fit into certain categories based on their traits, such as Vegetation, Reptile, Sea Animal, etc. Digimon hatch from Digi-Eggs, and as they age, will grow and change, or Digivolve, through several stages of strength - from Baby, through In-Training, Rookie, Champion, Ultimate to Mega. Only those Digimon owned by the DigiDestined can change from level to level when required, facilitated by Digivices, and Tags and Crests, and they revert to earlier levels when their energy expires. Other Digimon grow through the stages naturally, and do not revert. Each Digimon has special powers and attributes which change and grow as they move through the Digivolutionary levels. Digimon cannot be destroyed as such - when their physical form is terminated, their bodies dissolve into data particles, which are dispersed to the Data World, digital limbo, to be reconstructed as a Digi-Egg and deposited in Primary Village. Some evidence exists to suggest that inherently evil Digimon may be reborn into another neighbouring dimension, the World of Darkness.
The Japanese name for the first season of the Digimon cartoon, simply titled "Digimon: Digital Monsters" in America. This series tells the story of Tai, Sora, Matt, Izzy, Mimi, Joe and T.K., who are brought to the DigiWorld to fight the forces of evil. Their first conflict with the evil Devimon on File Island leads to the discovery that are the DigiDestined, a group of predestined children who will save the digital world. Their adventures take them to Server, where they battle Etemon, and then must return to Earth to stop Myotismon from locating and destroying the predestined eighth member of their group, who turns out to be Tai's little sister, Kari. Then, with Kari in tow, they return to the DigiWorld to free it from the grasp of the Dark Masters, learning more about the reasons they were chosen to be the DigiDestined along the way. The group splits up, but is soon reunited to defeat Apocalymon, a creature from beyond the mysterious Wall of Fire, who is the cause of the evil in the DigiWorld. With his defeat, the kids must return home.
Digimon Adventure comprises 54 episodes, and the movies "Digimon Adventure" and "Our Wargame," which, for the west, became the first and second parts of "Digimon: The Movie," respectively. Four years after the end of Digimon Adventure, the second season, Digimon Adventure 02 takes place.
DIGIMON ADVENTURE 02
The Japanese name for the second season of the Digimon animated series. In Japan, the series is set three years after the first, although in America, it was changed to be four years later (although this was sometimes not kept straight).
The older T.K. and Kari are teamed with three new DigiDestined - Davis, Yolei and Cody - to battle the tyrannical Digimon Emperor, a DigiDestined boy, Ken Ichijouji, who has become corrupted by the powers of darkness and is in the process of conquering the DigiWorld. Eventually, Ken is restored to normal and joins the group, but then, they are subjected to attacks by Arukenimon and Mummymon, who create BlackWarGreymon. But BlackWarGreymon rebels, and begins his own mission to destroy the Destiny Stones, eventually freeing Azulongmon, who warns of a greater evil. Digimon begin to appear all across the real world, and the DigiDestined travel all across the globe to battle and return them to the DigiWorld, meeting various international DigiDestined along the way. They then return to Japan, and again clash with
Arukenimon and Mummymon and their creator, a human named Oikawa, who wants the secret of the Dark Spore which transformed Ken into the Digimon Emperor - but Daemon and his compatriots want the Spore for their own purposes. The DigiDestined repel Daemon, but Oikawa escapes, copies of the Dark Spore already implanted in kidnapped children. With BlackWarGreymon's sacrifice of his own life to seal off the DigiWorld, Oikawa attempts to open a portal to it, but is instead taken to a different dimension, where it is revealed that he is possessed by Myotismon, who has been controlling his actions. Myotismon emerges from within Oikawa, and then uses the power of the numerous Dark Spores to transform himself into MaloMyotismon. He begins to infect both Earth and the DigiWorld with darkness, but the power of all the children and DigiDestined's dreams destroy him for good.
The series ends with a flash-forward to 25 years in the future, where we see the adult DigiDestined, and their own children - the DigiDestined of a new generation.
Digimon Adventure 02 comprises 50 episodes, and the movies, "Digimon Hurricane Touchdown/Supreme Evolution: The Golden Digi-Eggs" and "Diaboromon Strikes Back." "Hurricane Touchdown" was heavily edited to become the third segment of "Digimon: The Movie," while "Diaboromon Strikes Back" has not been released in the west.
Initially, when a new Digimon was introduced in the cartoon, a screen displaying their image and name appeared for the benefit of the viewing audience. Their assorted stats are also displayed in Japanese, but these were not translated (though some other language versions of the show did do this). The first design (pictured) premiered in "And so it begins..." - it was simply a tool for the audience, that did not actually exist within the show. The Analyser was then actually introduced into the show as a program on Izzy's computer in "No Questions, Please," when Gennai sent him it to help him identify new Digimon. The kids Digivices could be interfaced with this program to identify Digimon that they had seen. This also marked a redesign for the Analyser screen. The Analyser was again redesigned for Digimon Adventure 02, where it once again became a tool for the audience.
As his efforts in life were always overshadowed by those of his older brother, Sam, Ken Ichijouji wished for Sam to just go away so that he could be the favourite with his parents... but Ken didn't realise that he was going to get his wish. Sam was killed in a car accident, and Ken, overcome with guilt and grief, was determined to become as good as Sam, to fill the void the boy's death had left in his parents lives. Ken's memories of the DigiWorld, which he had visited a few years prior (see Ken's own entry for details) , had been repressed... but then, he received a mysterious e-mail - an e-mail from Oikawa, who told him of DigiWorld, and how it held the challenges for him that the human world did not.
Using the Digivice that had emerged from Sam's computer those few years before, Ken returned to the DigiWorld, but on the way, he was sidetracked to the World of Darkness. There, he dipped his Digivice into the ocean, and it was transformed into the Dark D-3. Ken continued on his way to the DigiWorld, where he was reunited with his Digimon, Wormmon. But this was not the same Ken Wormmon had once known. When Ken had dipped his Digivice into the Dark Ocean, it activated the Dark Spore which had infected him during his first trip to the DigiWorld, before Sam's death. With the power of the Spore (which he knew nothing about) Ken's task to become like Sam was an easier one than he thought - it fulfilled his desire, making him physically and mentally perfect - a star athlete, as well as a child prodigy. However, with his new abilities, Ken grew apathetic towards society - he did not believe that the rest of humankind was worthy of his time, and set his sights on the world which could challenge him - the DigiWorld. Ken now had a goal. And that goal was to completely and utterly conquer the digital world.
Ken designed himself a costume, and constructed what he called Dark Rings - hoops that when attached to a Digimon, would subvert their free will, making them his slaves. Using his slaves, he constructed a fortress, and powered it using both the Digi-Egg of Miracles and a reactor core which was, unbeknownst to him, a doorway to the World of Darkness . To broadcast power to the Dark Rings, he created Control Spires - huge black towers which acted like electricity pylons, powering the rings. In addition, he was able to broadcast the powers of his Dark D-3 to the Control Spires, which created an energy field rendering Digimon unable to Digivolve. Ken began to call himself the Digimon Emperor, but he did not realise that the DigiWorld was actually real, and that the Digimon were living creatures - to him, it was just a giant video game.
As the Emperor, Ken wears a costume that many have compared to a disco suit. He wears a set of purple-tinted shades, which are actually control devices, which send commands directly from Ken's brain, through the Dark Rings, to the brain of the Digimon wearing the ring. He carries a retractable whip. Due to the Spore filling his desire to be more like Sam, he physically resembles his brother more as the Emperor.
The Digimon were powerless before the Emperor, and Agumon called on Tai to come to the DigiWorld to help. Tai arrived and was filled in on the situation by Agumon and Gatomon. Tai then found the Digi-Egg of Courage, which released three new D-3 Digivices when he touched it. The D-3s were sent to the real world where they were received by Davis, Yolei and Cody - those who had been chosen to be the new DigiDestined. Davis came to the DigiWorld with T.K. and Kari, and met his Digimon, Veemon, who was able to Armour Digivolve using the Digi-Egg of Courage, into Flamedramon, to defeat the Monochromon the Emperor sent against them. Intrigued by these new children's abilities, the Emperor himself captured Davis and Veemon, but they were saved by Yolei and Cody, and their Armour Digimon, Halsemon and Digmon. In the ensuing battle, the Emperor defeated Gatomon, and escaped.
The Emperor then confronted the new DigiDestined again when they grew near to one of his slave combat pits, setting a contingent of Tyrannomon against them. He then conquered a small village named Santa Caria, and set up a Control Spire there, which was the first spire the DigiDestined acknowledged and destroyed.
The Emperor then travelled to the frozen north of the DigiWorld, to supervise the construction of another Control Spire. He set Ebidramon and Shellmon on the DigiDestined, but the spire was destroyed. Likewise was the spire in the freshly-conquered Night Forest, despite the efforts of the enslaved Roachmon Brothers. When Kari was trapped in the city of the Gardromon, the Emperor dispatched Andromon to destroy her, T.K. and Davis. However, the Dark Ring was not powerful enough to control Andromon, and a combination of his own memories and Kari's D-3 freed him.
Next, the Emperor tortured Davis, by making him think that he was going to feed the DigiDestined to Deltamon, but in a scuffle, Davis uncovered the Emperor's true identity. The Emperor escaped on an Airdramon. Enraged, and also miserable, Ken decided he wanted nothing more to do with the human world, and ran away from home, living in the DigiWorld and becoming the Digimon Emperor completely. His first act was to capture Greymon with a Dark Ring, and to attempt to Digivolve him into MetalGreymon - but instead, he became SkullGreymon! When he reverted, the Emperor captured him again, and took him to his fortress. The Emperor realised that Dark Rings were not powerful enough to control Ultimate Digimon, and so he developed the Dark Spiral, planning to use it on Agumon. However, Wormmon freed Agumon, hoping that Ken would pay him some attention and experiment on him instead, but the Emperor simply tracked Agumon down, captured him with the spiral, and Dark Digivolved him into a viral version of MetalGreymon.
Using MetalGreymon and his Airdramon force, Ken began conquering areas in the DigiWorld at a faster pace - but then he became embroiled in battle with the DigiDestined again, and Raidramon destroyed the Dark Spiral, freeing Agumon from it's control. The Emperor proceeded to go into seclusion, working on a secret project.
The first result of his secret work was a more powerful version of the Dark Spiral, which he used on multiple Digimon, including Digitamamon and Ninjamon. He set up a Control Spire in ShogunGekomon's area, and then returned to work on his master plan - genetically engineering his own powerful new Digimon. When the DigiDestined discovered his base, he emerged briefly to prevent Tentomon from Digivolving, but then returned to his work. His base rose from the ground, and began moving, through the ocean, towards a power source the Emperor had detected - the Dark Whirlpool. The Emperor voyaged into the pool inside a Mekanorimon, where he came across Devimon, who gave him a warning - "Beware the darkness." Laughing, the Emperor harvested Devimon's data, and integrated it into his own Digimon - Kimeramon - which he then sent to attack the DigiDestined, while he had a fist fight with T.K. - which he promptly lost.
The Emperor cut a swathe of destruction across the DigiWorld with his base and Kimeramon, setting up Control Spires in his wake. However, he should have heeded Devimon's warnings, as, little by little, he began to lose his hold over Kimeramon, unable to control the powers of darkness that had become part of the Digimon as a result of the use of Devimon's data. He refused to acknowledge any weakness on his part, however, and sent Kimeramon into battle with the DigiDestined again. However, Kimeramon simply flew away. Wormmon, determined to show the Emperor the error of his ways, led Davis to the Digi-Egg of Miracles, which Davis used on Veemon to Armour Digivolve him into Magnamon. Magnamon battled Kimeramon as the Emperor looked on, all the while believing he was in control. Wormmon sacrificed the last of his energy to power up Magnamon, who destroyed Kimeramon with his Magna Explosion attack.
Enraged at his defeat, thinking himself cheated, the Emperor resolved to "reset the digital world." The DigiDestined explained to him that the DigiWorld was not simply a computer game that you could reset - it was a completely real place. Stunned, the reality of what he had done sunk into the Emperor's mind - how he had horrendously mistreated living creatures. Tearfully proclaiming himself a monster, the Emperor threw off his gauntlets, shades and cape, and the rest of his suit deleted around him, returning him to his normal self. Ken eventually gained the trust of the DigiDestined, and joined their team.
The Digimon Emperor appeared briefly once more, much later, when the kids were being subjected to illusions by MaloMyotismon. Subconsciously, Ken believed that he should be punished for the evil things he did as the Emperor, and MaloMyotismon fulfilled his wish, showing him a dreamscape of himself, in his Emperor costume, tied to a rock, being beaten and bludgeoned by various Digimon, until his body deleted. Then, an image of Sam appeared, and told Ken that he could help him if he stayed with him. Wormmon appeared, telling Ken it was only an illusion, and then, the other DigiDestined arrived, and helped Ken to reconcile his feelings. Together they went on to battle MaloMyotismon.
The Digimon Emperor first appears in "Enter Flamedramon." His true identity is revealed in "Ken's Secret." He is transformed back into Ken in "The Crest of Kindness." More is divulged about his origin in "Genesis of Evil," and the Dark Spores are first revealed to be involved in "Invasion of the Daemon Corps" and "Dark Sun, Dark Spore." His voice is supplied by Derek Stephen Prince.
Name: In the Japanese version, the Digimon Emperor was named "the Digimon Kaizer." However, this was changed by the US dubbers - Kaizer is a German term, and the US Digimon writers always seek to avoid damaging any sensibilities, so it was changed to the safe, neutral term, "Emperor."
"THE DIGIMON EMPEROR'S REVENGE"
The name given by Fox Kids to the three-part story line consisting of "An Old Enemy Returns," "The Darkness Before Dawn," and "The Crest of Kindness."
Track 13 on the "Digimon: The Movie" soundtrack (hidden track number 1) - a remix of the TV show theme, performed by Paul Gordon, which plays during Greymon's fight with Parrotmon, before he is knocked out, and during all Digivolve sequences. For the lyrics to this song, click HERE.
"DIGIMON: THE MOVIE"
"Digimon: The Movie," as it is called in the Western world, is a combination of the first three Japanese Digimon movies - "Digimon Adventure," "Our WarGame," and "Digimon Hurricane Touchdown/Supreme Evolution: The Golden Digi-Eggs." The entire movie stretches from four years before "And so it begins..." to four years after the end of the first series, during the second series. The entire movie is narrated by Kari.
EIGHT YEARS AGO
Digimon Adventure theatrical presentation #1
Four years before the events of August 1999, a Digi-Egg appears through the Kamiyas' computer at Highton View Terrace. It hatches into a Botamon, which Digivolves into a Koromon, then an Agumon and finally a Greymon to protect the young Tai and Kari from the evil Parrotmon. The other six DigiDestined witnessed the fight between the two Digimon, as well, marking the moment when they were chosen to be the DigiDestined of their generation.
The events of this movie were covered in the series in "Return to Highton View Terrace" and "The Ultimate Clash."
FOUR YEARS AGO
Digimon Adventure theatrical presentation #2
Eight months after the defeat of Apocalymon, a mysterious Digi-Egg appears on the Internet and is infected with a computer virus. It hatches into a monstrous new Digimon, which rapidly begins consuming information from the Internet, gaining access to computers all over the world. It grows to it's Rookie stage of Keramon, and Gennai contacts the kids, warning them. Tai (who has recently had an argument with Sora) and Izzy are the first line of defence, as Agumon and Tentomon attempt to battle him. When Keramon grows to his Ultimate stage of Infermon, Matt comes into play, and WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon engage the fiend. However, he Digivolves into his Mega stage of Diaboromon, and thrashes them. As children from all around the world watch the battle on their computers, Diaboromon initiates a missile launch sequence, planning to fire missiles from America at Japan, destroying the DigiDestined! WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon are defeated again, and somehow, Tai and Matt are transformed into digital bodies again, and go inside the Internet to help. The children watching send e-mails of hope, trying to bolster the two Digimon - but they have more effect that anyone could hope! Empowered by the energy of the e-mails, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon Digivolve and combine together, into a new, even more powerful Digimon - Omnimon! While Omnimon and Diaboromon battle, with only 30 seconds left until the missile launch, Izzy reroutes all the kids' e-mails, slowing down Diaboromon's data, freezing him in place. With less than a second to go, Omnimon impales Diaboromon through the head, destroying him, and terminating the launch.
This movie introduced Yolei and Ryo in animated form, as viewers of the battle.
"DIGIMON HURRICANE TOUCHDOWN/SUPREME EVOLUTION: THE GOLDEN DIGI-EGGS"
Digimon Adventure 02 theatrical presentation #1
While T.K. and Kari are abroad, they witness a battle between two Digimon - Terriermon and Endigomon - with a human child, Willis, caught in the middle. Endigomon flees, and Willis and Terriermon run from T.K. and Kari, warning them not to follow. Davis, Yolei and Cody track him down, but when Davis and Willis are left together, Kokomon appears again, and Terriermon Digivolves to Gargomon to battle him alongside Flamedramon. Kokomon flees again, and Willis reveals the truth to Davis - eight years prior, a Digi-Egg appeared on his computer, and hatched into twin Digimon - Gummymon and Kokomon. Over the course of the next four years, Willis attempted to create his own Digi-Egg on his computer, but before it was hatched, a computer virus attacked it - and it mutated into Diaboromon. After Diaboromon was destroyed, Willis thought things would be okay... but the computer virus somehow tracked them down, and took Kokomon away from him, turning him into an evil being. Kokomon eventually Digivolved to his Champion form (Endigomon), and continued to stalk Willis, each time saying to him: "Go back to the beginning," and "destroy." Kokomon returns, and Digivolves to Antylamon (his Ultimate form) to battle the kids Armour Digimon. Antylamon then Digivolves to Kerpymon, and the battle continues, but then, Angemon and Angewomon show up to lend a hand. Kerpymon begins to reverse time, turning the kids back into toddlers. To save the day, Angemon and Angewomon Digivolve to their Mega stages of Seraphimon and Magnadramon, and release the Golden Digi-Eggs. Davis and Willis use the Golden Digi-Eggs to Digivolve Veemon and Terriermon to Magnamon and Rapidmon, who are swallowed by Kerpymon. Inside him, they destroy the virus that possesses him - but in turn, render him unable to cure his injuries. Kerpymon reverts to his natural, non-viral form, and deletes, thanking Willis for freeing him. As the other kids leave to go back to Japan, Willis and Terriermon find a Digi-Egg... which soon hatches out into Kokomon once more, this time, as Kari puts it, signing a different tune!
This movie was originally an hour long, but was edited down to thirty minutes for US audiences . It's length meant it was screened in Japan as a double-feature - the first half, which ends with Davis and Willis riding Raidramon across the fields, is "Digimon Hurricane Touchdown," while the second half is "Supreme Evolution: The Golden Digi-Eggs!" It is not actually supposed to occur in continuity with the series, but has been shoehorned in for the US - it takes place somewhere between "Storm Of Friendship" and "Davis Cries Wolfmon." The plot was re-written to tie it in with "Our Wargame" - originally, Willis had nothing to do with the creation of Diaboromon,and he was not featured in the 2nd movie, or in the cartoon at all. A whole portion of the plot - Kokomon capturing the season one DigiDestined - was removed (yet is still mentioned on the VHS and DVD packaging), and many battle scenes were reorganised. The existence of the Golden Digi-Eggs, and Angemon and Angewomon's ability to go Mega are solely confined to this movie, and do not impact on the ongoing series.
"Digimon: The Movie" featured all the regular
voice actors from the cartoon series, and served to finally fill
audiences in on the entire back story of the cartoon, as well as
introducing them to brand new characters. The movie's soundtrack
features LEN, Fat Boy Slim, the BareNaked Ladies, the Mighty
Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake, Summercamp and Show Off as well
as the familiar work of Paul Gordon, performing "Hey
Digimon," "Change Into Power"
and a rap version of the Digimon theme, imaginatively titled "DigiRap."
The soundtrack also used new songs such as "Let's
Kick It Up," "Here We
Go," "Strange," "Going Digital" and
"Run Around," which were
also used as battle themes in the Digimon Adventure 02 series.

"DIGIMON WORLD TOUR, Pt. 3"
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #42
English version written by Terri-Lei OMalley and Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
Ken and Matt encounter a young DigiDestined named Rosa in Mexico City, and Wormmon gets jealous of her crush on Ken while they battle a Dokugumon and Minotarumon, while in Russia, Sora and Yolei manage to overcome the language barrier to get Russian DigiDestined Anna, Sonya and Yuri to help defeat a squad of Flymon and Mammothmon, before everyone meets back up in Japan in time to celebrate Christmas.
A Digi-Port is a gateway into the DigiWorld. From Earth, Digi-Ports can only be opened by a D-3, and can only be traversed by an individual holding a D-3 or Digivice - i.e.: a DigiDestined, and their Digimon partner. However, they appear to be able to opened from the DigiWorld by some additional means, as Arukenimon was able to open all the Digi-Ports later to unleash armies of Digimon on Earth. The DigiDestined then had to travel across the world, re-opening the ports to return the Digimon to the DigiWorld. Kari noted that only one 'port could be open in one area of the DigiWorld at a time - it's not exactly clear how this prevented them from using Digi-Ports to quickly get from place to place, but it did (although Ken and Stingmon didn't seem to have any trouble breaking this rule when they went to Kyoto). Daemon was capable of opening Digi-Ports whenever he wanted, and so to defeat him, Ken had to draw on the dark power buried within himself to transform a Digi-Port into a gate to the World of Darkness.
A Digi-Port first appears in "Enter Flamedramon."
Track 1 on the "Digimon: The Movie" soundtrack - a rap remix of the TV show theme, performed by Paul Gordon and M.C. Peapod, which plays during the movie's opening credits. For the lyrics to this song, click HERE.

Group: Perfect - Level: Ultimate - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Nightmare Syndrome/r, Hyper Flashing
Digitamamon runs a restaurant on an island on the continent of Server, where he is aided by Vegiemon. After the DigiDestined split up following Tai's disappearance, Joe and Gomamon found their way to the island, and ate at the restaurant, but found they were unable to way, and wound up washing dishes to pay back Digitamamon. Matt and Gabumon arrived, having left T.K. and Patamon on the shore of the lake the island was located in, intending to just have a look around and head back - but upon discovering Joe, they offered to help him out. However, DemiDevimon, following orders from Myotismon, set about causing all manner of accidents at the restaurant, making it seem as though they were Joe's fault. The two humans and their Digimon were made to keep working by Digitamamon to pay for the damages, plus Matt's anger prevented his Crest from glowing. When Tai returned, he and T.K. quickly came to the island, and implicated DemiDevimon as the culprit. When Matt tried to leave, Digitamamon refused to let him, and grew in stature, attacking the kids. His Nightmare Syndrome made short work of Garurumon and Greymon, but when Joe saved T.K. from the clutches of Vegiemon, Matt realised that he was truly his friend, and his Crest began to glow, allowing Garurumon to Digivolve to WereGarurumon. WereGarurumon defeated Digitamamon, and Vegiemon fled, allowing the kids to leave.
Four years later, Digitamamon continued to run his diner, but he had since had a change of heart. When the new DigiDestined team were searching for a new Digi-Egg, they came across Digitamamon's diner, and had a meal there. However, trouble started when Digitamamon wouldn't accept Yolei's regular dollars as payment, demanding Digi-Dollars. Fortunately, Michael and Mimi showed up to offer to pay, but Digitamamon realised how mean he was being, and let the bill slide. Yolei still didn't believe that he had changed, and that he was still as mean as ever. She was almost proved right shortly thereafter, when Digitamamon was captured by one of the Digimon Emperor's Dark Spirals and made to attack the kids, even head-butting Mimi. Yolei lost her temper and started yelled at Digitamamon, accusing him of lying and talking about the importance of being sincere - and just then, the Digi-Egg of Sincerity appeared, and Yolei used it to Armour Digivolve Hawkmon into Shurimon, who destroyed the Spiral and freed Digitamamon.
Some time later, Digitamamon was seen running a Chinese restaurant in a Chinatown area in the DigiWorld. His noodle soup was popular with Arukenimon and Mummymon, who demanded to know what was in it. Mummymon's attempt to find out was interrupted by the arrival of the DigiDestined, and Digitamamon and his waiter, Tapirmon fled. Mummymon and Arukenimon pursued them, and discovered that the water for the soup was coming from a natural spring, which had, bizarrely, been transformed into soup by the powers of a Destiny Stone within it. Digitamamon and Tapirmon tried to stop Mummymon from sampling from the spring, but he just bandaged them up and took a drink - resulting in the Destiny Stone's rising to the surface. When BlackWarGreymon arrived, Digitamamon and Tapirmon helped to occupy Arukenimon and Mummymon while the DigiDestined freed Azulongmon from the Stone. Digitamamon later took the DigiDestined back to his restaurant for a huge meal.
Later on, a Digitamamon (not the same one) appeared during the final battle with MaloMyotismon.
Digitamamon first appears in "Weregarurumon's Diner." His voice is supplied by Derek Stephen Prince, and is styled after that of the actor, Peter Lorre. Lorre played Ugarte, the restaurateur in the classic film, "Casablanca," and as Digitamamon is a restaurateur also, he has a Lorre-styled voiced as an in-joke.
Name: "Digi" is from "digital," and "tama" is from "tamago," the Japanese word for "egg."

Digimon Adventure 02 episode #2
English version written by Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
Sora and Izzy accompany the new DigiDestined into the DigiWorld, where Yolei and Cody find the Digi-Eggs of Love and Knowledge respectively, and meet their Digimon, Hawkmon and Armadillomon, who Armour Digivolve to Halsemon and Digmon to battle the Digimon Emperor's slaves, and free Davis and Veemon from his clutches.
After the Greymon/Parrotmon battle at Highton View Terrace in 1995, a mysterious group, apparently charged with protecting the DigiWorld created the Digivices, along with the Tags and Crests, to send out to the DigiDestined when the time was required. The Dark Masters got wind of their plan, and Piedmon attempted to steal the Crests, but Gennai, a member of the group, was able to fend him off, and deposit the Digivices, along with the Digi-Eggs that would become the kids Digimon, on File Island. When Devimon began his takeover, the time had come for the DigiDestined to be summoned, and the Digivices were dispatched.
The Digivices are, in the words of Izzy, "remote digital apparatus." Each is about the size of a fist, and are carried by the DigiDestined. The Digivices shot down into the midst of the kids' summer camp like meteors, and teleported them to the DigiWorld. At first, the kids didn't realise their importance, until Izzy and Mimi came across a temple guarded by Centarumon, which bore the symbol of the Digivice, declaiming it as an ancient icon of power. Izzy realised that the Digivices were what caused their Digimon to Digivolve, and also were capable of repelling the Black Gears.
The Digivices are apparently extensions of the kids. They react to their emotions, channelling the emotional energy and using it to Digivolve the Digimon. The beams of light that they shoot can purify evil Digimon - whether they're infected by a Black Gear, as Leomon was, or whether they're just naturally unpleasant, like Sukamon and Chuumon were at first. When used in conjunction with a Crest, the Digivices warp and change colour for the same length of time that the Digimon in question remains in its Digivolved stage. The Digivices are fitted with clocks, and are capable of tracking the signals emitted from the other Digivices. This tracking facility only worked at close range in the real world, and not at all in the Dark-Master-controlled DigiWorld.
The Digivices played important roles in destroying Devimon, when they energised Angemon. They were used continually to Digivolve the kids' Digimon so they could fight. There was an eighth Digivice, which belonged to the Eighth Child - the predestined eighth member of the DigiDestined. It turned out that this child was actually Tai's little sister, Kari. Her Digivice had actually appeared in the family's apartment at the same time the other kids' appeared at summer camp, but for some reason did not teleport Kari into the DigiWorld. Her Digivice was taken from the apartment by their cat, Miko, and was stolen by a magpie, and later recovered by Wizardmon, who had learned that she was the Eighth Child, and that Gatomon, one of the lieutenants of Myotismon (the evil vampire Digimon overlord who had come to Earth in search of the Eighth Child, so he could destroy her), was actually her Digimon. When Myotismon captured Kari, Tai brought her Digivice to her, but DemiDevimon snatched it away. Wizardmon sacrificed his life to save Kari from Myotismon's Grizzly Wing attack, and Kari's raw emotion at his death charged her Digivice with power, forcing DemiDevimon to drop it. Kari got it back, and Gatomon was able to Digivolve to Angewomon and defeat Myotismon.
After beating Myotismon's Digivolved form of VenomMyotismon, the kids returned to the DigiWorld, where their Digivices continually came into play to Digivolve their Digimon to let them battle the Dark Masters and their minions. The Digivices were instrumental in containing the power of Apocalymon's Total Annihilation attack, which destroyed him.
Four years later, the Harmonious Ones created three new Digivices for Davis, Yolei and Cody, which were a different model to those held by the old DigiDestined. When T.K. and Kari found their Digi-Eggs, their old Digivices spontaneously changed into the new model too. It was later revealed that Ken's Digivice had been of the old design, but was transformed into the new model after immersion in the Dark Ocean. Izzy dubbed these new Digivices D-3s (see the D-3 entry for more information).
The Digivices first appeared in "And so it begins...," They were first referred to as "Digivices" by Izzy in "Kabuterimon's Electro Shocker," but this was an error in the US version, as he had no way to know their name at the time. The name was first used in correct context in "Evil Shows His Face," when Leomon mentioned it. It was in "A Clue From The Digi-Past" that the kids were actually TOLD the name, and that the purifying powers of the Digivices were revealed, when they were used on Sukamon, Chuumon and Leomon. Kari's Digivice first appeared at the very end of "Home Away From Home," and received title billing in "The Eighth Digivice." The secrets behind the choosing of the DigiDestined and the creation of the Digivices were explained in "The Ultimate Clash."
Digivolving is the process by Digimon move through the natural levels of their growth. When a Digimon reaches a certain point in it's life, it will naturally Digivolve into it's next stage. However, the DigiDestined's Digimon can accelerate this process, through an influx of energy, from either a Digivice or Crest. The energy provided comes from within the DigiDestined themselves - the Digivices and Crests merely help to focus the energy. The DigiDestined's Digivices will Digivolve their Rookie level Digimon to Champion, while their Tags and Crests will interact with their Digivices to Digivolve a Champion to Ultimate level. Digivolving to Mega level can be done in various ways (see the "Mega" entry for more information). As this acceleratedprocess is not natural for Digimon, they can only remain in their Digivolved stages for certain periods of time, until their energy is expended.
Digivolving first occurred in "And so it begins...", when the kids' In-Training Digimon Digivolved to Rookie to protect them from Kuwagumon. Champion Digivolving first occurred in "The Birth of Greymon," when Agumon became Greymon to save Tai from Shellmon. Ultimate Digivolving, albeit flawed, first occurred in "The Arrival of SkullGreymon," when Greymon became SkullGreymon. Mega Digivolving first occurred in "Prophecy," when VenomMyotismon, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon made their first appearances.

The Digital World - or DigiWorld - is a parallel world that coexists with Earth, created as it was by it. The DigiWorld's life began in the early portion of the twentieth century with the ABC and ENIAC - the first computers. The ABC laid the foundations, and ENIAC built upon them, and over the years that followed, even after these computers were shut down, the network of interlinked electronic devices on Earth continued to grow... and from all that data, there was born the DigiWorld. Many different Digital World realities were created, each of them running parallel to one of the various Earth realities in existence in the multiverse. The particular iteration of the DigiWorld that we are interested in, however, also runs parallel with two other dimensions - one, a kaleidoscopic world of colour and shape, composed of an energy that is capable of turning thought into reality, while the other is a dark and foreboding world of evil, characterised by it's grim, expansive ocean; the World of Darkness, theorised to be capable of bringing beings' dark thoughts to life. The DigiWorld is closely tied to both these dimensions and Earth - everything in the DigiWorld is made up of digital matter, pure data given life through the dreams, wishes, stories, spiritual beliefs and more of humankind, via the power of the "dream dimension." The four compass regions of the DigiWorld are each guarded by one of the Harmonious Ones - the Eastern region is goverened by Azulongmon.
When an evil being emerged from the beyond the DigiWorld's Wall of Fire, the DigiWorld's chronology was warped, throwing it out of synch with Earth, making it much older than it would be under normal circumstances - one Earth minute was equal to one DigiWorld day. Prophecy foretells that any time the DigiWorld is threatened by evil, a new group of children from each generation, called the DigiDestined, will come to the DigiWorld and save it. The DigiDestined for each generation were selected by a mysterious group, charged with the DigiWorld's protection. When the eight children of this generation witnessed a battle between a Greymon and Parrotmon, the group chose them, and constructed their Digivices, Tags and Crests. A brutal attack by the Dark Masters left the whole group dead, save for Gennai, who was able to escape and secrete the DigiDestineds' objects all across the DigiWorld. When Devimon began to take over File Island with his Black Gears, the time for the DigiDestined to be summoned came, and the Digivices were dispatched, transporting seven chosen children into the DigiWorld, where they battled with the evil Digimon there.
Myotismon attempted to conquer both the DigiWorld and Earth by killing the Eighth Child - the predestined eighth member of the DigiDestined. He opened a portal to Earth and led his army on an assault on Central Odaiba in the search for the child, who was eventually revealed to be Kari Kamiya, little sister of Tai Kamiya, leader of the DigiDestined. When Myotismon was finally stopped, a rift opened to the DigiWorld - but it had be horrifically changed. In the few days that the DigiDestined had been back on Earth, years had passed in the DigiWorld, and the Dark Masters had risen again, and conquered the entire world, reformatting it into the massive Spiral Mountain. When the kids defeated the Dark Masters, they were confronted with the being who had created the four monstrosities - Apocalymon. Apocalymon was bent on sharing his sorrow with the rest of reality, and didn't care if he lived or died in doing so. Thankfully, the kids defeated him. With his defeat, the DigiWorld began to reformat itself into its original form, free of evil, also putting it back in synch with Earth-time, meaning time would move to the same pace in both worlds.
After the battle with Diaboromon, Gennai called the DigiDestined back to the DigiWorld, where they released the powers of their Crests, creating a shield which restored peace to the DigiWorld, expelling all evil.
Over the course of the next four years, Yukio Oikawa, a human who had learned of the DigiWorld when he was a boy, made attempts to enter the DigiWorld to live out his unfulfilled childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to him, he was possessed by the spirit of Myotismon, who was manipulating his actions. Oikawa created Arukenimon and Mummymon and sent them into the DigiWorld, where they manipulated the young Ken Ichijouji into becoming the Digimon Emperor. As the Emperor, Ken set up his Control Spires - the design of which had come from the enigmatic World of Darkness and had apparently been implanted in Ken's head by someone, possibly Oikawa, or by the Dark Spore already within Ken - all around the DigiWorld. The Spire disrupted the fabric of reality, creating spatial warps and weakening the dimensional boundaries - Oikawa hoped he could use this disruption to enter the DigiWorld, but the actions of the new DigiDestined - destroying the Control Spires - prevented this. Next, Arukenimon and Mummymon created BlackWarGreymon, who set about destroying the powerful Destiny Stones, which completely threw the balance of the DigiWorld out of order. However, the DigiDestined were able to free Azulongmon from the prison the Dark Masters had put him in years before, and he stopped BlackWarGreymon from destroying the last stone.
Oikawa's final scheme to enter the DigiWorld was a grand one. Arukenimon opened all the Digi-Ports, allowing wild Digimon to come to Earth, and the DigiDestined had to travel all over the world to round them up. While they were gone from Japan, Arukenimon and Mummymon began kidnapping children. When the DigiDestined returned, they discovered that Daemon and his forces had come to Earth in search of Ken and the Dark Spore within him, but Oikawa managed to copy the Spore first, before Daemon could get his hands on him. Daemon was repelled into the World of Darkness as Oikawa implanted the Spores into the kidnapped children. His hope was for the Spores to convert the childrens' innocence - being that which lets children enter the DigiWorld - into energy he could use to traverse the dimensional barrier - but Myotismon had other plans, and brought Oikawa to another dimension - world of dreams and nightmares - where he absorbed the powers of the Spores into himself and became MaloMyotismon. After MaloMyotismon's defeat, Oikawa used the dream dimension to fulfil his own desire - his body was transformed into energy in the form of a flock of butterflies, which spread across the DigiWorld, restoring peace and harmony.
Twenty five years into the future, the portal to the DigiWorld remains open, and everyone on Earth knows about it and Digimon. In fact, everyone on Earth has their own Digimon! But the darkness has not been defeated, and the DigiDestined, and their children, still have to fight to protect the light for as long as they live.
Group: Insectoid - Level: Armour - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Gold Rush, Rock Cracking
Digmon is the first Armour Digivolved form of Armadillomon, the Digimon partner of Cody of the DigiDestined. Armadillomon Armour Digivolves with the Digi-Egg of Knowledge to become Digmon - his Gold Rush attack will round up even the toughest hombre, and his Rock Cracking technique always shakes things up.
Digmon first appeared when Cody and Yolei found their Digimon, Armadillomon and Hawkmon, in a temple, while fleeing from the Digimon Emperor's slaves. With help from Izzy and Sora, they were able to activate the Digi-Eggs they found there, allowing the Digimon to Armour Digivolve. Digmon and Halsemon then freed Davis and Veemon from the Emperor's clutches. Digmon appeared on the scene to battle the Emperor's Tyrannomon, then after that, appeared to demolish the Control Spire in Santa Caria. When the DigiDestined headed for the frozen regions of the DigiWorld to take out another Control Spire, Digmon protected Cody from Shellmon. Digmon's Gold Rush proved ineffectual when the kids were battling Andromon, who had been overtaken by a Dark Ring, and he could do no damage against SkullGreymon either. Digmon joined in the battles against viral MetalGreymon, and after that, appeared again to break down the wall of Starmon's prison, allowing Cody and Davis to escape.
Digmon helped out in battle against Digitamamon, who was being corrupted by a Dark Spiral, but his Rock Cracking attack could not break the his shell. Digmon also leant a hand during the battle in ShogunGekomon's village. After this, Cody found the Digi-Egg of Reliability, which enabled Armadillomon to Armour Digivolve into Submarimon. As Submarimon, he and Cody infiltrated the Digimon Emperor's base, and then became Digmon to free the Emperor's captives. The kids fled from the Emperor's new creation, Kimeramon, but then they all returned to the Emperor's base again to try to shut him down for good. Digmon helped battle Bakemon, and Kimeramon again, but was reverted back to Upamon by the ferocity of the battle. Energy from the Digi-Egg of Miracles turned him back into Armadillomon, and he became Digmon again to help the other Digimon evacuate the kids from the plummeting base as Magnamon battled Kimeramon.
Digmon appeared a little while later, to help the other Armour Digimon stop Golemon from destroying a dam the DigiDestined had just rebuilt. When the DigiDestined were rebuilding a Punimon village, Digmon and Cody went tunnelling underground, only to be attacked by Thundermon. Digmon De-Digivolved, but then Armadillomon Digivolved into Ankylomon. Later, Digmon appeared while in the Giga House, but being an Insectoid Digimon, his mind was taken over by Arukenimon's flute, and he was forced to attack Davis, Cody and Ken along with Stingmon. Thankfully, Yolei and Kari were able to undo the flute's effects, freeing him. Everyone ganged up on Arukenimon, and Digmon turned a can of bug-spray on her. Digimon showed up again to help Stingmon destroy another Control Spire, and then a little later to join in a battle to stop BlackWarGreymon from destroying another Destiny Stone.
Digmon partook in the Christmas battle in Odaiba, and then travelled to Australia with Cody and Joe to deal with the Digimon who had appeared there, meeting up with Derek, an Australian DigiDestined, in the process. He appeared exceedingly briefly during WarGreymon's battle with BlackWarGreymon, and then, again only briefly, after BlackWarGreymon's defeat.
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 Digmon avatar faded away.
Digmon first appears in "The Digiteam Complete." His voice is supplied by Tom Fahn.
Name: From the English word, "dig," in relation to his tunnelling and boring abilities.
Group: Sea Animal - Level: Ultimate - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Striking Fish, Fishing Rod
The Divermon are minions of MetalSeadramon, the Dark Master of the digital ocean. When Whamon initially saved the kids from MetalSeadramon's wrath, he pursued them into the depths of the sea, calling in his Divermon to scout for them. The kids and their Digimon were alerted to the Divermons' presence by Gomamon's Marching Fishes, and Whamon quickly headed for an underwater trench. The Divermon tried to follow, but their oxygen tanks couldn't take the water pressure, and they were sent spiralling away. Zudomon dispatched straggling Divermon while WarGreymon fought MetalSeadramon.
Divermon first appear in "Under Pressure." The number of Divermon changes from three to four depending on which scene you're watching. Only three spoke, and their voices were supplied by Tom Fahn ("Blue Leader"/"Jim"), Jeff Nimoy ("Gold Leader"/"Phil") and Michael Sorich ("Red Leader"/"Sid").
Four years later, Kari was brought to the World of Darkness, and encountered some Digimon who looked like Divermon. These creatures actually called themselves "Scubamon," but this was proven to be an unequivocal error on the part of the US translators - they should have been called Divermon. However, at the end of this episode, it is revealed that these creatures were not actually even Digimon, and were simply posing as Divermon/"Scubamon" - so, in the encyclopedia, I chose to refer to them as "Scubamon" (in speech marks) because it creates a distinction between real Divermon and the false forms put on by these creatures, who were servants of Dragomon.
An unnamed Australian DigiDestined was also shown to have a Divermon for a partner. This Divermon later reappeared during the final battle with MaloMyotismon.
Name: From the English word, "diver," in reference to their flippers, oxygen tanks and spear guns.
The process by which two Digimon combine their forms into a new, more powerful Digimon. The first DNA Digivolved Digimon was Omnimon, created when WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon fused together to battle Diaboromon. It is important to note here that they do NOT progress upward in terms of level - Omnimon is STILL a Mega-level Digimon, just more powerful than other Megas. At this time, however, the process was a mystery, and had no name. It was four years later, when Davis was attempting to convince Ken to join them in their fight against Arukenimon that their Digimon, ExVeemon and Stingmon DNA Digivolved into Paildramon, and Izzy recognised the process as being what had happened with Omnimon. Later, Gatomon and Aquilamon DNA Digivolved into Silphymon, and Angemon and Ankylomon became Shakkoumon.
DNA Digivolving first occurs in "Digimon: The Movie." It is first referred to by name in "United We Stand," when ExVeemon and Stingmon cry it out as they combine. I am well aware of the continuing argument over whether or not Omnimon was a "Jogress" (Japanese term) or "Fusion" Digivolve - but in "Fusion Confusion," Izzy CALLS the merging of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon a DNA Digivolve, so it is at least canonical for the US version.
Group: Insectoid - Level: Champion - Type: Virus - Attack Techniques: Poison Thread, Poison Cobweb
The kids first encountered a Dokugumon when they were trying to open the portal to Earth in Myotismon's castle. Having already managed to put eight of the nine Key Cards needed to unlock the portal into place, the kids came under attack by Dokugumon and her miniature spider minions. The Digimon Digivolved to fend her off, and Tai managed to chose the ninth card from the remaining two, and the portal was opened, allowing the kids to return home.
Four years later, Yolei was attacked by a Dokugumon in the crater left by the Digimon Emperor's base. Hawkmon was injured protecting her from the spider, and then Flamedramon destroyed the Dark Spiral on Dokugumon, freeing her from the Emperor's control.
Another Dokugumon was seen under the control of Arukenimon a little later, in the Giga House. Davis, Ken and Cody were trapped in her web, but were able to use a giant air conditioner to blow her off the web and save themselves. Later, when wild Digimon were appearing all over Earth, a Dokugumon was seen in the Mayan Ruins in Mexico, with a Minotarumon. After a battle with WereGarurumon, Stingmon and Monochromon, they were both sent back to the DigiWorld..
A Dokugumon first appears in "It's All In The Cards."Mari Devon supplies all the growls and hisses for the numerous Dokugumon who appear during both seasons, aside from the one in "Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2," which is voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.
Name: From the Japanese word "dokugumo," meaning "poison spider."
Group: Sea Animal - Level: Champion - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Pulse Blast, Dolphin Kick
The Dolphmon were recruited by Ikkakumon to help protect one of the Destiny Stones from BlackWarGreymon. The DigiDestined had hidden the stone underwater, and Ikkakumon, Submarimon, MegaSeadramon and the Dolphmon all united to protect it, but even together, they were no match for the Dark Mega's power. Paying no heed to Cody's pleading words, BlackWarGreymon parted the waters and destroyed the stone.
The Dolphmon appear in "Cody Takes A Stand."
Name: From dolphin, a sea-dwelling mammal.
Group: Sea Animal - Level: Ultimate - Type: Virus - Attack Techniques: Tentacle Claw, Tentacle Flapping
Dragomon is the "undersea master" who the "Scubamon" that kidnapped Kari serve.
Dragomon is not named in dialogue, but the silhouette that appears in "His Master's Voice" makes his identity evident. The "Scubamon" warned that their master knew of Kari, and that he would come for her - but he never appeared again, so nothing more was divulged about him. The Dark Ocean and the World of Darkness resurfaced several times, however.
Name: While it might appear that his name simply comes from "dragon," "Dragomon" is actually a corruption of his original Japanese name, "Dagomon." The name Dagomon comes from "Dagon," a Phoenician fertility god, who featured in the tales of Cthulu by H.P. Lovecraft. Dagon had servants known as the Deep Ones - so it is not unreasonable to assume that the creatures who were posing as "Scubamon" were Dragomon's equivalent of the Deep Ones. Also, the original Japanese title for "His Master's Voice" was "Dagomon's Call," so it is assured that Dragomon is definitely the Undersea Master.
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #39
English version written by Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
The kids discover that Digimon are appearing all across Earth, as Arukenimon has opened all the Digi-Ports, allowing wild Digimon into the real world. When in battle with Mummymon, Paildramon is able to use the energy of Azulongmon's Digi-Core to Mega Digivolve to Imperialdramonand send Mummymon packing. The kids then plan to use Imperialdramon to fly around the world, depositing them at various locations so they can deal with the Digimon there.
Group: Animal - Level: Champion - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Iron Drill Spin, Crusher Bone, Mole's Claw
The kids encountered Drimogemon in an underwater cavern while on their way to the continent of Server. Having freed Whamon from the thrall of a Black Gear, they were taken to the cavern to recover their Tags, which Devimon had hidden there, before his destruction. They were confronted with Drimogemon, also under the control of a Black Gear, who had been posted there by Devimon to guard the Tags. As Ikkakumon battled him, the kids found their Tags. Ikkakumon then destroyed the gear, freeing Drimogemon.
When Tai was temporarily returned to the real world, he saw a Drimogemon flicker in and out of phase with Earth.
Four years later, a Drimogemon was seen under the control of the Digimon Emperor, and created the crater into which Davis and Veemon fell, to be captured by the Emperor. Drimogemon was freed from the Dark Ring controlling him by Digmon.
Later, when Digimon were appearing all over the world, a Drimogemon was seen in Japan. Shortly after that, one was sighted during the final battle with MaloMyotismon.
A Drimogemon first appears in "Departure for a New Continent."
Name: Dri is short for drill. Moge comes from the Japanese word mogura, meaning mole.
The D-Terminals are popular portable hand-held computers, which are commercially availale. Each of the DigiDestined carry one, even the original team. They all use them to send e-mails to each other, but in the case of the new DigiDestined, they also store the respective DigiDestined's Digi-Egg(s).The D-Terminals were later modified by Yolei to allow real-time communication as well as e-mail.
D-Terminals first appear in "Enter Flamedramon." By the way, they don't have spell check.
Egotistical, womanising, muscular, arrogant cousin of Sora of the DigiDestined. When the kids returned to Earth to stop Myotismon's plans for conquest, they managed to get a lift from Duane to Odaiba. However, before they got there, Koromon was forced to relieve himself on the seats of Duane's van. Duane was furious, and blamed Joe! Izzy tried to stop him from fighting, but Duane shoved him aside, accidentally knocking him off the bridge they were on. Tentomon saved him, but then Gesomon emerged from the river. Duane made himself scarce while Ikkakumon battled the aquatic monster.
Duane appears in "Almost Home Free." Note that in the original Japanese version of this episode, Duane was not scripted as being Sora's cousin, but was actually a stranger, whom Mimi and Sora convinced into giving them a lift by "acting cute."
"DUEL OF THE WARGREYMON"
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #46
English version written by Seth Walther
The origins of Arukenimon and Mummymon are revealed as BlackWarGreymon returns and attempts to kill Oikawa, only to be caught up in battle with WarGreymon and Imperialdramon. He is defeated, and the Digimon finally manage to teach him that life does have meaning.
Episode Trivia - This episode holds the distinction of being Digimon's 100th episode. When it was first aired in the US, it was combined with "The Dark Gate" to make an hour long special which acted as the second part of "The Battle For Both Worlds."
