The past of the being known
as Gennai is something of a mystery. It is known that he was a
member of the ancient, mysterious group that was charged with the
protection of the DigiWorld, which chose the DigiDestined
from each generation. When the eight children from our generation
were chosen, the Dark Masters got wind of the
group's plans, and led a brutal attack on them, killing them all,
save for Gennai. Gennai - then a young man - battled with Piedmon,
but during the conflict, Piedmon inserted a small black sphere
into Gennai's back. Acting quickly, Gennai appropriated a Mekanorimon,
and grabbed up the Digi-Eggs and
Digivices that the group had created for the chosen
children, and fled, using the Mekanorimon's flight capabilities.
He deposited the eggs and Digivices on File Island,
but Piedmon had been able to capture the Tags
Gennai and the Dark Masters went into seclusion then - both to
prepare for the coming of the DigiDestined. When Devimon
began his attempted takeover, the time had come - the Digivices
were dispatched, and seven of the eight chosen children came to
the DigiWorld. After they defeated Devimon, Gennai - now very old
- made contact with them, and told them of their destiny. He
explained that they had to go to Server to battle the other evil Digimon
there, and also told them about their Tags and Crests. The kids
obeyed his wishes, and headed to Server, finding their Tags along
the way. Upon arrival on the continent, they immediately clashed
with Etemon numerous times, but managed to
locate their Crests, which had somehow become scattered. During
the final battle with Etemon, Tai was sucked
through a dimensional rift back to Earth. As time passes slower
in the DigiWorld, for the few hours he was on Earth, months
passed in the DigiWorld, and the DigiDestined split up. Izzy
made it his priority to find Gennai to try and learn more about
their destiny, but after months of searching, he had still turned
up nothing. After a confrontation with Vademon
and DemiDevimon, Izzy was contacted again by
Gennai, via his laptop computer. Gennai sent him a computer
program named the Digimon Analyser, which would
help the kids to identify Digimon they encountered.
When Tai returned, and all the kids were together again, Gennai
once again contacted them, and informed them of the prophecy of
the Eighth Child, explaining how there was to be an eighth member
of the DigiDestined. He told them how Myotismon
was planning to open a portal to the real world, so that he could
find and kill the Eighth Child and prevent the fulfilment of the
prophecy of the DigiDestined. The kids tried to stop Myotismon
from opening the portal, but failed, and Gennai brought them to
his underwater home, where they met him in the flesh for the
first time. He explained how they had to use the Key
Cards to unlock the portal. He and Izzy conversed about
Digimon, and Gennai revealed that he a creature of digital
matter, like a Digimon, but without any special attributes. He
modified Izzy's laptop so the kids' Digivices could be
inter-linked with the analyser program.
The kids then successfully opened the portal and went back to
Earth to battle Myotismon and his armies. Gennai e-mailed Izzy
and sent him the Digital Barrier program to
protect him and his family from Bakemon. The
kids then discovered that the Eighth Child was actually Kari,
Tai's little sister, and that Gatomon, one of
Myotismon's lieutenants, was destined to be her Digimon! Gatomon Digivolved
to Angewomon and destroyed Myotismon, but then,
Gennai unearthed an ancient prophecy that foretold what would
happen next. In accordance, Myotismon rose again, having Warp-Digivolved
to the Mega level as VenomMyotismon,
but Agumon and Gabumon were
able to defeat him by Warp-Digivolving to their Mega stages of WarGreymon
During the time that the kids were on Earth, the Dark Masters had
risen again, and conquered the entirety of the DigiWorld,
reformatting it into the massive Spiral Mountain.
The kids returned and did battle with the Dark Masters, defeating
three of the four, leaving only Piedmon. Gennai
arrived on the scene (still in possession of the Mekanorimon), as
MagnaAngemon took out the last Dark Master, and
tried to warn the kids that there was an even greater evil - the
being who had created the Dark Masters; Apocalymon!
The kids were immediately drawn into battle with Apocalymon, who
destroyed their Crests, but the kids realised that the power came
from within them, and they were able to use their Digivices to
contain his Total Annihilation attack, destroying him, restoring
the DigiWorld to normalcy. Gennai explained that Earth and the
DigiWorld where now chronologically in synch, and that the kids
had to leave while the world reformatted itself. Using the
trolley car Gennai supplied them with, the kids returned to the
Eight months later, Gennai contacted Tai and Izzy to warn them
about Keramon, a Digimon/virus creature who had hatched
out onto the Internet. He sent Agumon and Tentomon into
the Internet to fight him, and later uploaded Gabumon and Patamon
In May 2000, Gennai called all the DigiDestined back to the
DigiWorld, and explained to them that they needed to release the
powers of their Crests if they were to seal it off from evil
entirely. However, this rendered the Digimon unable to Digivolve
to their Ultimate forms. Gennai subsequently remained in
e-contact with Izzy.
When the Digimon Emperor came to the DigiWorld, Gennai did
not appear to help the new DigiDestined, as he had with the old
team. Apparently, he, and various associates, were in the process
of invading computer systems in the real world, and deleting all
the information that had been gathered on the DigiWorld. With
this operation underway, he was able to come to the real world
when he was summoned by Izzy, where he revealed to the
DigiDestined that he was a young man again. Digimon had
begun to appear all
around the world, as a result of Arukenimon opening all
the Digi-Ports, and Gennai needed to mobilise the
DigiDestined to round them up and send them back to the
DigiWorld. Using one of Azulongmon's Digi-Cores, he gave
each of the original eight Digimon a power boost, restoring their
lost ability to Digivolve to Ultimate, and then sent them all
over the world to meet up with his associates and gather up the
Digimon. The kids were surprised to meet all of Gennai's
associates - because all of them were completely identical to
Gennai himself. They were: Benjamin in America, Jackie
in China, Hogan in Australia, José in Mexico and
After MaloMyotismon was defeated some time later, Gennai
reappeared to grimly survey the devastation caused in the
DigiWorld by MaloMyotismon's darkness. He also returned Gatomon's
Tail Ring to her, explaining why it had to be kept from her.
Gennai first appeared at the very end of "The
Legend of the DigiDestined," which
continued directly into "Departure for a New
Continent." He first appeared in the flesh
in "It's All In The Cards."
We learned a little of his past, and saw him as a young man and a
member of the mystery group, in "The
Ultimate Clash." As an old man, his voice
is supplied by Michael Reynolds, while as a young man, his voice
is supplied by Jeff Nimoy.
No explanation has ever been offered as to the purpose of the
black ball Piedmon inserted into Gennai. It was theorised that it
was related to his age reversal, but a Japanese audio drama CD
released two years after season two ended specifically stated
that it's purpose was unknown (which feels somewhat like a
self-parodic wink to the audience). As such, the most popular
prevaling theory for the equally unexplained age reversal is that
Gennai split himself into numerous younger versions of himself -
a theory supported by Benjamin's statement that he and Gennai
were both one and the same.

The first Gesomon the kids saw was one of Myotismon's
minions. The kids encountered him while on their way to Odaiba,
just after returning from the DigiWorld. Izzy
fell from a bridge in an argument with Sora's
cousin, but Tentomon saved him - only to have
Gesomon erupt from the waters below. Ikkakumon
battled and defeated him. When he was destroyed, his copy of the Crest
of Light was seen floating away.
Four years later, when Digimon were appearing in the real world,
a Gesomon was seen attacking a ship with an Ebidramon.
Later, Joe and Cody encountered a Gesomon, an
Ebidramon and a Shellmon in Australia, and sent them back
to the DigiWorld - it may have been the same Gesomon who attacked
the ship, but it's not clear.

Gigadramon is a minion of Machinedramon, the
Dark Master of the digital cities. When Tai and Izzy
ventured into Machinedramon's city, to search for medicine for
the sick Kari, Izzy logged on to Machinedramon's
network to help them find their way around - inadvertently
alerting Machinedramon's forces to their location. Gigadramon and
Megadramon were dispatched with the rest of his
army to locate them, and attack. Thanks to MetalGreymon,
they were able to avoid them, but then, when Izzy used a computer
trick to mask their location, Machinedramon initiated plan
Elimin8, giving Gigadramon and Megadramon orders to bomb the
entire city. Their Dark Side Attacks blew up the building the

along with Mamemon, BigMamemon and MetalMamemon,
Giromon captured Catherine, a French DigiDestined,
as she and her Floramon tried to destroy the Control Spire
by the Seine, and was elsewhere when the Mamemons had a banquet
at the Palace of Versailles. Tai and T.K. arrived
with their Digimon, being helped by T.K.'s grandfather. Greymon
and Angemon battled them, and then Giromon arrived,
turning the tide of the fight in the misfits’ favour.
Greymon and Angemon Digivolved into MetalGreymon

successfully defeated them. Then, they destroyed the Control

The first Gizamon the DigiDestined ran in into
were minions of Myotismon. They first emerged
from the waters of Odaiba Bay to menace Matt's
father and his co-workers, but they were fortunate enough to
escape. The Gizamon appeared again after Myotismon was destroyed,
when Matt, T.K., their father and their Digimon
voyaged out in a boat to see if they could penetrate the mystical
fog bank Myotismon had shrouded the city with. The Gizamon
attacked their boat, and then pursued them back to land. Trapped
in their car, things looked bad for the group... until the
Gizamon just vanished. In actuality, Myotismon's bats had
converted their bodies into energy, which they then used to
recreate Myotismon as VenomMyotismon.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor was in the
process of conquering the DigiWorld, multiple Gizamon were
seen working for him, building a Control Spire in the
frozen north. When Gomamon told the Emperor to leave them
alone, he offered the Gizamon a reward if they would attack
Gomamon. They did so, leaving him unconscious - but their reward
turned out to be Dark Rings, which made them the Emperor's
After the Emperor's defeat, some Gizamon were seen helping Yolei

Note: This entry deals with the eggs in a plural sense, as
they appear in "Digimon: The Movie."
While in battle with Kerpymon, the Mega form of Kokomon,
the rogue Digimon partner of Willis, the DigiDestined
from Colorado, Angemon and Angewomon realised that
they needed the power of the Golden Digi-Eggs to defeat him.
Summoning all their energy, they Digivolve to their own Mega
forms of Seraphimon and Magnadramon, and summoned
the eggs, sending them to Davis and Willis. Davis used the
Digi-Egg of Miracles to transform Veemon into Magnamon,
while Willis used the Digi-Egg of Destiny to turn Terriermon
into Rapidmon. The two Golden Armour Digimon then
destroyed the virus within Kokomon, and he deleted. What happened
to the Golden Digi-Eggs is not clear.
In the US version of the movie, there is no explanation as to
where the Golden Digi-Eggs come from. However, there is also very
little explanation in the Japanese version, as well - it's simply
viewed as a miracle. However, this portion of the movie is
intended as being out of continuity with the rest of the series,
meaning that the existence of these Digi-Eggs does not actually
impact on the on-going story, only the dubbers have shoe-horned
it in. The Digi-Egg of Miracles in the movie is not the same as
the Digi-Egg of Miracles from the series (which has it's own
entry), because the one in the series has a different history to

The Golemon encountered by the DigiDestined was not
actually a living Digimon, but was in fact created from a Control
Spire by Arukenimon. While in the process of
transforming the Spire, Arukenimon was seen by Palmon, but
the Golemon she created managed to knock her out before she could
tell anyone, and then proceeded to attempt to destroy a dam,
which would flood a village. At Mimi's behest, the
DigiDestined arrived to battle Golemon, but no matter how hard
they tried, he just kept going. Davis realised that they
would have to destroy him, but Cody and Yolei were
horrified by the idea, thinking it made them no better than the Digimon
Emperor. Ken showed up, and Stingmon attacked
Golemon - then Palmon awoke, and told them the truth about
Golemon. When Yolei came to terms with her feelings about Ken,
her D-3 began to glow, and Hawkmon Digivolved
into Aquilamon for the first time. He and Stingmon then
destroyed the unliving Golemon.
Golemon appears in "Spirit Needle."

original Japanese name, but Bandai of America changed it to Rockmon

Gomamon is the Digivolved form of Bukamon,
and is the Digimon partner of Joe
of the DigiDestined. Like Joe, Gomamon is
reliable, but he takes life a lot easier, and he tries to make
Joe relax once in a while. His attack (if you could call it
that), Marching Fishes, allows him to open a spatial portal via
water, through which a stream of rainbow-coloured fishes emerge,
to do what he asks of them.
Gomamon, like the other kids' Rookie Digimon, first appeared to
battle Kuwagumon. He then Digivolved to his Champion
stage of Ikkakumon to save Joe from the
Black Gear-infected Unimon. He
continued to Digivolve whenever Joe was in danger. When Tai
disappeared after the final battle with Etemon,
Joe and Gomamon found themselves forced into working in Digitamamon's
restaurant, and were soon joined by Matt and Gabumon. Tai
returned to help them escape. When the kids returned to Earth to
halt the plans of Myotismon, Gomamon finally Digivolved to his Ultimate
stage of Zudomon to defeat MegaSeadramon.
After Myotismon's defeat, Gomamon accompanied Joe and the others
back to the DigiWorld, and left group with Joe
when he decided to stay with Mimi, who no longer
wished to fight. He and Joe then left Mimi in the company of
several Digimon allies they had gathered, when Joe left to
'discover' himself. The kids and Digimon all got back together to
battle and defeat Piedmon and then Apocalymon.
In May 2000, Gomamon lost the ability to Digivolve to Ultimate,
when Joe and the other kids gave up the powers of their Crests
to seal the DigiWorld off from evil.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor was in the
process of conquering the DigiWorld, Gomamon was first seen in
the frozen north, being forced to build a Control Spire
alongside some Gizamon. When he challenged the Emperor, he
was attacked by the Gizamon, who were promised a reward by the
Emperor if they did so. Their reward, however, turned out to be
imprisonment with a Dark Ring, as Gomamon was left
unconscious. He recovered, and tried to use a TV to get in
contact with Joe, but passed out and was buried by a snowstorm.
Joe's Digivice went off, alerting him to the situation,
and he and the new DigiDestined came to Gomamon's rescue. When
the kids destroyed the Control Spire, Gomamon was able to
Digivolve into Ikkakumon and destroyed the Ebidramon
trying to clamp down on Digmon.
Later, Gomamon Digivolved into Ikkakumon again to help free the
kids from an underwater oil platform that they had been trapped
in by MegaSeadramon. Gomamon was seen having a little
underwater fun shortly thereafter.
Gomamon did not appear again for a long time, until he, as
Ikkakumon, was called on to gather some Digimon allies to help
protect the sixth Destiny Stone against BlackWarGreymon.
Even with the help of MegaSeadramon and a small army of Dolphmon,
Ikkakumon could not stop the rampaging Mega.
Shortly thereafter, Gomamon and the other Digimon were brought
into the real world to celebrate Christmas with their human
partners. However, when some wild Digimon appeared in Odaiba
and attacked Matt's concert, Gomamon and the others
Digivolved to beat them back.
Gomamon then went to Australia with Joe, Cody and Armadillomon
to round up the wild Digimon there. With his power to Digivolve
to Ultimate restored by an energy boost from Azulongmon's
Digi-Core, courtesy of Gennai, Gomamon became Zudomon to
join with Submarimon and Coelamon (the Digivolved
form of Crabmon, the partner Digimon of Derek, one
of the Australian DigiDestined) in battling a Scorpiomon,
and sent it and a bunch of other aquatic Digimon back into the
Back in Odaiba, Gomamon became Zudomon again to help battle SkullSatamon,
a minion of Daemon's. The Ultimates were defeated, and
gave up their ability to Digivolve once again, as they gave their
power to Imperialdramon, enabling him to Mode Change
and destroy SkullSatamon.
Later on, Gomamon and the other Digimon were seen barricading the
digital gate at Highton View Terrace with tiles, to
prevent entry into the DigiWorld. When BlackWarGreymon sacrificed
his life, the gate was energised, sealing the DigiWorld off.
Gomamon, along with the other Digimon, and all the Digimon of the
world's DigiDestined, appeared again in the DigiWorld to witness
the destruction of MaloMyotismon, acting as beacons to
draw their Digimon partners into the DigiWorld, where the power
of their dreams finished the villain off for good.
Three months later, after the defeat of Armageddemon,
Gomamon briefly travelled to the real world to get together with
all the Japanese DigiDestined and their Digimon.
Twenty-five years later, the portal to the DigiWorld remains
open, and Gomamon is still at Joe's side.

When Myotismon was invading Odaiba, Digimon
were appearing all over the world. One such Digimon was
Gorillamon, who appeared in New York City, where he was seen by a
boy named Michael. Following this first encounter with a
Digimon, Michael received a Digivice - he was actually a DigiDestined.
Four years later, when Michael was in the DigiWorld with Mimi,
having just met the new DigiDestined in Digitamamon's
diner, Gorillamon attacked the restaurant, under the influence of
one of the Digimon Emperor's Dark Spirals.
Michael's Digimon, Betamon, Digivolved into Seadramon
and battled with Gorillamon. While underwater, Gorillamon tried
to use his Energy Cannon on Seadramon, but the serpentine Digimon
used his Ice Blast attack to jam it up, causing an explosion
which blew him out of the water. A bout of Light Speed Jabbing
from Togemon destroyed the Spiral, freeing Gorillamon.
Some time later, when wild Digimon were appearing all over Earth,
another Gorillamon was seen in New York. Yet another Gorillamon
was seen in Asia, partnered with A Vietnamese DigiDestined boy

worlds with darkness.
The Gorillamon Michael saw first appears in "The

(who had ran off after he and T.K. had fought earlier), and a

trouble, but it was to no avail. Then, Myotismon arrived, and was
angered to find the two slacking. He ordered them to steal Matt
and T.K.'s Crests, and they had no choice but to
comply. As soon as they got far enough away from Myotismon,
however, they simply quit. They didn't want to hurt the kids.
Enraged, Myotismon attacked them. They tried to fight back, but
they were no match for his power. His Grisly Wing attack

*is* Myotismon's Grisly Wing we're talking about - it does not
teleport people, it destroys them.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor was in the
process of conquering the DigiWorld, several Gotsumon were
seen at different times. Three appeared when the Emperor captured
an Elecmon, debating how to deal with the situation.
Later, when the DigiDestined broke the prisoners free from one of
the Emperor’s camps, it was shown that three Gotsumon
(likely the same ones) had been captured, as they were freed, and
then went back to the real world with the kids, where they hid
out for a while, before going home. Some time after that,
multiple Gotsumon were seen fleeing in terror when Kimeramon
razed a small town. After the Emperor’s defeat, several
Gotsumon were seen helping the DigiDestined to rebuild the
damaged parts of the DigiWorld.
Much later after this, when Digimon were appearing in the real
world, an unnamed European DigiDestined, and Rosa, one of
the DigiDestined from Mexico, were shown to have Gotsumon for
Digimon partners. Matt, Gabumon, Ken and Wormmon
headed for Mexico to round up the wild Digimon there, and met
Rosa and her Gotsumon in some Mayan Ruins. When WereGarurumon

Greymon is the Digivolved form of Agumon,
the Digimon partner of Tai of
the DigiDestined. Agumon first Digivolved into
Greymon to protect Tai from Shellmon, not long
after the kids first arrived in the DigiWorld.
He appeared again to battle the Black Gear-infected Andromon,
and then again to save Tai from Mojyamon, who
had also been infected by a gear. He then participated in the
final battle with Devimon, but he and the other
Champions were bested. Things looked bleak, until Angemon
saved the day.
When the kids arrived on Server, Greymon
appeared to battle Etemon for the first time.
Then, Etemon trapped the kids in a stadium, and had another
Greymon attack them. Tai tried to use his Crest
to make his Greymon Digivolve further, but because Tai hadn't
mastered true courage, the process failed. When Tai tried to
force it, it became corrupted, and Greymon became SkullGreymon.
SkullGreymon defeated Etemon's Greymon, and then attacked the
kids, but his energy expended before he could hurt them. Tai was
afraid to make Agumon Digivolve after that, but Piximon
cured their fears, and Greymon took on Tyrannomon.
Greymon appeared again when the kids penetrated Etemon's pyramid,
and then again when they rescued Sora from Datamon.
In the final battle with Etemon, Tai's Crest glowed, and Greymon
Digivolved to MetalGreymon.
Greymon continued to appear whenever Tai was in peril, often
further Digivolving to MetalGreymon to defeat more powerful
opponents. He accompanied Tai and the other kids back to Earth to
battle the forces of Myotismon and stop his
plans for conquest, and was then Digivolved to his Mega
stage of WarGreymon to battle Myotismon's
Digivolved stage of VenomMyotismon. With
VenomMyotismon's destruction, he went returned to the DigiWorld
with the others to battle the Dark Masters and Apocalymon.
Eight months later, when Agumon and Tentomon were sent
into the Internet to battle Keramon, Agumon Digivolved to
Greymon to fight alongside Kabuterimon. However, Keramon
Digivolved into Infermon, and proved too powerful for them,
beating them down before Greymon could even complete his
Digivolution into MetalGreymon.
In May 2000, Greymon lost the ability to Digivolve to Ultimate
when Tai and the other kids gave up their Crest power to seal the
DigiWorld off from evil.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor was taking over
the DigiWorld, Agumon called Tai for help, explaining that he
couldn’t Digivolve. It was soon discovered that the
Emperor’s Control Spires were blocking Digivolution,
and the Digimon set about destroying them, so they could
Digivolve into Champion once again. Greymon was seen smashing
they up on many occasions.
After the Digimon Emperor had his identity discovered, he
attempted to capture Greymon with a Dark Ring and make him
Digivolve into MetalGreymon. However, the ring was not powerful
enough to hold Greymon, and it’s dark energies made him
Digivolve into SkullGreymon once more. When he De-Digivolved back
into Agumon after fighting a troop of DarkTyrannomon, the
Emperor captured him again, and created the Dark Spiral,
which succeeded in giving Agumon enough energy to Dark
Digivolve into a viral version of MetalGreymon. All
the DigiDestined had to work together, with help from Garurumon
and Raidramon, to free Agumon from the Emperor’s

Shortly afterwards, Agumon’s ability to Digivolve to
Ultimate was restored by a power boost from one of Azulongmon’s
Digi-Cores, courtesy of Gennai. He went to Paris with Tai,
T.K. and Patamon, where he Digivolved into Greymon
to battle the Mamemon brothers with Angemon.
However, they were too strong for the Champions, so they
Digivolved to MetalGreymon and MagnaAngemon, and took
them, and their boss, Giromon, out.
Greymon Digivolved into MetalGreymon again to help out in the
battle with SkullSatamon, one of Daemon’s
minions. However, because he had been in the real world for so
long, his energies were expired, and he De-Digivolved into
Agumon. Agumon and the other Digimon decided to give up their
restored power once again, using it to empower Imperialdramon,
so he could Mode Change and destroy SkullSatamon.
Greymon did not appear again after this.
