Group: Machine - Level: Rookie - Type: Virus - Attack Techniques: Darkness Gear, Drag
The Hagurumon are minions of Machinedramon. Two of them constantly monitor his network, and were the ones who repeatedly discovered the kids in his city when Izzy unwittingly logged on.
Four years later, a Hagurumon was seen during the final battle with MaloMyotismon.
Hagurumon first appear in "My Sister's Keeper." One of their voices was supplied by Tom Fahn, but the second one remains unidentified.
Name: From the Japanese word, "Haguruma," meaning gear.
Group: Animal – Level: Armour – Type: Data – Attack Techniques: Tempest Wing, Eagle Eye
Halsemon is the first Armour Digivolved form of Hawkmon, the Digimon partner of Yolei of the DigiDestined. Hawkmon Armour Digivolves into Halsemon using the Digi-Egg of Love. The names of Halsemon’s attacks have not been very clear in the American version of the show – he has displayed four techniques (cyclone, energy blades from wings, red beams from eyes, rings from eyes), yet each and every one of them has been named “Tempest Wing,” although the eye beams were later given the name “Eagle Eye.” In Japan, the tornado is known as “Tempest Wing,” the energy blades are “Mach Impulse” and the eye rings are “Red Sun.”
Halsemon first appeared whenever Yolei and Cody found their Digimon partners in a temple in a forest, along with their Digi-Eggs. Thanks to some encouragement from Sora, Yolei activated her Digi-Egg, allowing Hawkmon to Armour Digivolve to Halsemon, and then team up with Digmon to free Davis and Veemon from the clutches of the Digimon Emperor. He then defeated Snimon, one of the Emperor’s slaves, in battle.
Later, Halsemon joined in the battle with the Emperor’s Tyrannomon, then arrived at the close of Flamedramon’s battle with RedVegiemon. Halsemon helped destroy the Control Spire in the frozen north, and was then plunged into solo battle with the Roachmon Brothers when he and Yolei were lost in the Night Forest with Mimi. After that, he participated in the battles in the Gardromon city, and helped battle Deltamon.
Halsemon then helped battle the Emperor’s Meramon, but was defeated by SkullGreymon. He was involved in both battles against viral MetalGreymon.
He took part in the fight with Digitamamon, but when Yolei found the Digi-Egg of Sincerity, he reverted to Hawkmon, then used it to Armour Digivolve into Shurimon.
Halsemon appeared again after a little while, to battle Kimeramon. After the DigiDestined escaped from that battle, they penetrated the Emperor’s fortress, and Halsemon joined in the battle against the Bakemon and Kimeramon again. He appeared again shortly after, re-energised by the power of the Digi-Egg of Miracles, and helped the other Armour Digimon get the kids to safety.
Halsemon appeared again when Thundermon attacked a Punimon village. He next appeared some time later, carrying Yolei to the site of the third Destiny Stone, but they arrived too late, and BlackWarGreymon had already destroyed it. Halsemon next showed up at the battle in Odaiba at Christmas, and used his eye-ring attack to paralyse most of the Digimon who had appeared so they could be sent back to the DigiWorld, before reverted to Hawkmon, then Digivolving to his Champion form of Aquilamon, and DNA Digivolving with Gatomon into Silphymon.
When MaloMyotismon was infecting both Earth and the DigiWorld with darkness, the kids used the powers of the dream dimension they had been transported into to their own ends. All their Digimon split into all their different Digivolutionary forms at once – and so Hawkmon, Halsemon, Shurimon, Aquilamon and Silphymon joined the other Digimon in battling MaloMyotismon. When the villain fled into the DigiWorld, only the true representation of Hawkmon could go through the portal, so Silphymon went through, while the Halsemon avatar faded away.
Halsemon first appears in “The Digiteam Complete.” His voice is supplied by Neil Kaplan.
Name: A corruption of his Japanese name, “Holsmon,” which in itself is derived from a corruption of Horus, the half-man, half-bird Egyptian god.
The Harmonious Ones are the guardians of the four compass regions of the DigiWorld. Azulongmon guards the Eastern region, where the Japanese DigiDestined's adventures take place. The North is guarded by Ebonwumon, the West by Baihumon, and the South by Zhuqiaomon.
Shortly before the coming of the original seven DigiDestined to the DigiWorld, the Harmonious Ones were sealed away by the Dark Masters. After that adventure was completed, the Harmonious Ones remained sealed, however, and sought to use the power of the DigiDestineds' Crests to free themselves. The DigiDestined were instructed to release the energy of the Crests by Gennai, creating a shield that protect the DigiWorld from evil, but with the coming of the Digimon Emperor, the Harmonious Ones found themselves trapped still, thanks to the binding power of the Emperor's Control Spires. From within their prisons, the Harmonious Ones worked to create a force that could defeat the Emperor, selecting Digimon and creating Digi-Eggs and D-3 Digivices, to give to the next generation of DigiDestined. In addition, they transformed the Crest of Kindness, which had been lost to darkness, into the Digi-Egg of Miracles, which was subsequently found and used by the Emperor to power his base. It's possible that the Harmonious Ones may have allowed the Emperor to find it, as it would prove instrumental in his downfall.
As BlackWarGreymon was destroying the Destiny Stones, he began to see images of Azulongmon, and believed him to be his ultimate foe. In the battle to protect the final Destiny Stone, the DigiDestined tried to move it with their D-3s, and Azulongmon was freed from his prison, crediting his freedom to the power of the Crests of Light and Hope. He dispatched BlackWarGreymon, and explained to the DigiDestined what had gone before, and warned of what was yet to come.
The other three Harmonious Ones were not shown to be freed. In a Japanese audio drama released two years after the season ended, Gennai noted that he didn't know anything about the other three.
Group: Bird – Level: Rookie – Type: Data – Attack Techniques: Hawk Beam/Feather Strike/Beak Buzzsaw, Beak Pecking
Hawkmon Digivolves from Poromon, and is the Digimon partner of Yolei of the DigiDestined. Speaking with an upper class British accent, Hawkmon is a little snobbish, but is always ready to lend a helping hand. His primary attack involves him throwing the feather mounted on his headband, which whirls like a circular saw – it has been called “Beak Buzzsaw” (in “Old Reliable”), “Hawk Beam” (in “Big Trouble in Little Edo” – this is the name on Bandai’s materials) and “Feather Strike” (in “Fusion Confusion”).
As one of the three Digimon chosen by Azulongmon and the other guardians of the DigiWorld, Hawkmon has the power of Armour Digivolving, and was sealed away with the Digi-Egg of Love to await the coming of his human partner. When the Digimon Emperor captured Davis and Veemon, Yolei and Cody fled into the forest with Sora and Izzy. Their Digivices began to pick up a signal, which led them to a temple, where they found the Digi-Eggs of Love and Knowledge. Sora and Izzy could not lift them, but when Yolei and Cody touched them, they came up in their hands, and energy beams gushed out from beneath them. From the energy beams leapt Hawkmon and Armadillomon, who greeted their human partner. With reassuring words from Sora in her ears, Yolei activated the Digi-Egg of Love, following Hawkmon’s instructions, and Hawkmon Armour Digivolved to Halsemon, to help Digmon free Davis and Veemon. Then, when everyone returned to Earth, Hawkmon reverted to his In-Training form of Poromon.
When Poromon would return to the DigiWorld, he would automatically Digivolve into Hawkmon. Hawkmon accompanied Yolei on all the team's adventures, Armour Digivolving into Halsemon when ever he was needed. On one occasion, he and Yolei were separated from the others while searching for Mimi in the Night Forest, and were saved from some Dark Ring-controlled Gekomon and Otamamon. Hawkmon then became Halsemon to help destroy the Control Spire in the area, so that Togemon could take down the Roachmon brothers.
When the team met Michael, a friend of Mimi’s and a DigiDestined from America, Yolei discovered the Digi-Egg of Sincerity, and used it on Hawkmon to Armour Digivolve him into Shurimon. Over time, Yolei seemed to favour using the Sincerity egg over the Love egg, meaning Hawkmon became Shurimon more often than he became Halsemon. Shortly after first becoming Shurimon, Hawkmon clashed with Ninjamon in ShogunGekomon’s village, and battled him as Shurimon, even after his Dark Ring was removed.
When the location of the Digimon Emperor’s base was discovered, and the kids planned to stay in the DigiWorld until they could destroy it, Yolei went a little hyper, and the end result was Hawkmon suffering injury at the hands of a Dokugumon. Thanks to Kari and Gatomon’s ministrations, he was quickly healed, and then helped in the final battles with the Emperor and his creation, Kimeramon.
A little while after the Emperor was deposed, and the DigiDestined were trying to rebuild damage done to the DigiWorld, Hawkmon gained the ability to Digivolve to his Champion form. When a Golemon attacked a dam, and threatened to destroy it, the DigiDestined tried to stop him, but he was relentless. Shurimon was the first to fall, but when Yolei was able to be truthful with herself about her attitude towards Ken, Hawkmon Digivolved into Aquilamon, and then helped Stingmon destroy the Golemon, which Palmon had revealed was actually an unliving construct created from a Control Spire.
Hawkmon was the first to Digivolve to Champion twice, when he did so to help Raidramon battle an unliving Minotarumon construct that was trying to demolish a bridge the kids had rebuilt. He Digivolved again later in the day to fight an Okuwamon construct, but was quickly taken down. While Paildramon battled Okuwamon, Hawkmon and Armadillomon cleared the path for the kids into the wreckage of the Emperor’s old base.
While searching for Gatomon’s lost tail ring, Hawkmon, Yolei, Kari, Gatomon, Ken and Wormmon accidentally stumbled into a phase warp which teleported them into the World of Darkness. When they found their way out again, Hawkmon Digivolved into Aquilamon, and then he and Gatomon DNA Digivolved into Silphymon for the first time to destroy an unliving Blossomon. After that, he reverted to his Baby form of Pururumon.
During the following battles to stop BlackWarGreymon from destroying the Destiny Stones, Hawkmon would either become Shurimon, or become Aquilamon and then merge to form Silphymon to battle him. When Digimon began to appear all over the world, Hawkmon went with Yolei, Sora and Biyomon to Russia, where they defeated a swarm of Flymon with help from Russia DigiDestined Anna, Sonya and Yuri, and then took down a herd of rampaging Mammothmon. He then returned to Japan with everyone else to help battle the Daemon Corps.
While in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension, the DigiDestined were subjected to illusions of their greatest desires. Hawkmon and ExVeemon freed Yolei from her’s, and then the kids used the power of the dimension to grant a wish of their own, and the Digimon all split into their separate Digivolutionary forms. Hawkmon, Halsemon, Shurimon, Aquilamon and Silphymon joined with all the other Digimon to battle the villain. When he fled to the DigiWorld, he was confronted with the Digimon of all the world’s DigiDestined, his body was destroyed by the power of their dreams, and his spirit was obliterated by Imperialdramon’s Giga Crusher attack.
Three months later, Hawkmon watched the battle between Omnimon, Armageddemon and Imperialdramon Paladin Mode, but could do nothing to aid in the conflict.
Twenty-five years into the future, the portal to the DigiWorld remains open, and Hawkmon is still at Yolei’s side. Yolei and Ken married, and had three children – Hawkmon seems to help Yolei out with her homemaking.
Hawkmon first appears in “The Digiteam Complete.” His voice is supplied by Neil Kaplan, except in "Revenge of Diaboromon," where, due to the minimal role Hawkmon plays (he says only one word), Jeff Nimoy filled in for Kaplan.
Name: From the English word, “hawk,” a bird of prey.
"HERE WE GO"
Track 12 on the "Digimon: The Movie" soundtrack, by Jason Gochin. It plays as WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon search the Internet for Diaboromon. It was also used regularly in the first half of Digimon Adventure 02, and played during the sequences when the kids would travel to and from the DigiWorld, beginning with "Enter Flamedramon." For the lyrics to this song, click HERE.
"Track 5 on the "Digimon: The Movie" soundtrack, by Paul Gordon. This tune debuted in Digimon Adventure, in "Weregarurumon's Diner," and was used as a battle theme in almost every episode thereafter, excepting a handful of episodes during the Dark Masters arc. During the movie, it plays when Raidramon carries Willis, Davis and Terriermon across the countryside. For the lyrics to this song, click HERE.
Know members of the Hida family include: Cody, his father, Hiroki, his mother (unnamed), and his grandfather on his father’s side, Chikara.
As a young boy, Cody’s father Hiroki was best friends with Yukio Oikawa. Through Hiroki’s computer games system, they were able to see into the DigiWorld, and apparently communicate with it (it was later proven that Oikawa had a Digimon, Datirimon, but it is not known if Hiroki had one – but in either case, he was NOT one of the original five DigiDestined children Gennai spoke of). However, Hiroki’s father – Cody’s grandfather – decided they were spending too much time “playing video games,” and put a stop to it. However, Hiroki and Oikawa remained friends, never sharing their secrets about the DigiWorld with anyone but themselves. As the years passed, Hiroki got married, had a son, and joined the police force. It still seemed, however, that he and Oikawa were working on a project involving the DigiWorld together. Regrettably, before that project’s completion, Hiroki was killed in the line of duty when he took a bullet meant for an important political figure.
His wife, Cody’s mother, then lived with Hiroki’s father, continuing to care for Cody. All three of them were on board the plane that was saved from crashing by Garudamon and MegaKabuterimon in 1999. This was when Cody saw his first Digimon – the event that would ultimately lead to his becoming a DigiDestined.
The family lives in the same apartment building as the Inoues and the Takaishis. Cody’s grandfather is something of an eccentric – he teaches Cody the Japanese martial art of Kendo, and is always on hand to dispense wisdom. His universal cure for what ails you is prune juice – no problem is too big for it, he reckons. After Oikawa had implanted Dark Spores in multiple children, Cody’s grandfather stumbled across Armadillomon in their apartment, and discovered that Cody knew of the DigiWorld. Cody was equally surprised to discover that his grandfather and his own father knew of its existence. When BlackWarGreymon confronted Oikawa, Cody’s grandfather attempted to break up the fight, telling Oikawa that he was Hiroki’s father. Oikawa seemed ready to relent, but the evil force inside of him – Myotismon – pushed him onward, making him attack Cody’s grandfather. BlackWarGreymon leapt in front of him, taking the blast, sacrificing his life in the process.
Cody’s mother and grandfather were present with all the other members of the kids families at the summer camp watching the kids’ battle with MaloMyotismon in the DigiWorld.
Cody's grandfather first appears in "Old Reliable." His voice is supplied by Dan Lorge.
Mrs. Hida's voice is first heard in "The Digiteam Complete." She is first seen in "Family Picnic," but it is only from behind. Her face is first seen, and words are first seen to come out of her mouth, in "20,000 Digi-Leagues Under the Sea." Her voice is supplied by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.
HIGHTON VIEW TERRACE
Highton View Terrace is an apartment building in Tokyo. Here, the barriers between the real world and the DigiWorld are weak, and a gate can be opened between the dimensions.
The first time this gate opened, a Digi-Egg was sent into the real world via the Kamiya's computer, to be found by Tai and Kari. When the egg hatched, a Botamon emerged, and eventually Digivolved into an Agumon. The Agumon left Highton View Terrace with Kari to explore the area, but then, while it was doing so, the gate opened again, and Parrotmon emerged from it. The Agumon Digivolved into a Greymon, and battled Parrotmon, damaging Highton View Terrace in the process. It was originally thought that the Greymon and Parrotmon destroyed each other, but it was later discovered that they had been pulled back into the DigiWorld. The kids, who had all witnessed this, repressed the memory, and the media said it had been a terrorist bombing. Over the years, the kids and their families all moved out of Highton View Terrace.
Four years after this, when seven of the eight kids had been sucked into the DigiWorld, the evil Digimon lord, Myotismon, used the key cards to open the gate to Earth, and he and his minions came through, emerging through the Highton View Terrace gate. The kids followed, but emerged through the other gate back at the summer camp, through which they had left. They returned to Highton View Terrace, where their memories of the battle between Greymon and Parrotmon re-emerged. They realised that witnessing that battle must have been instrumental in their being chosen to be the DigiDestined, and hence they deduced that the Eighth Child, who Myotismon was looking for, must have lived in Highton View Terrace and seen the battle as well. Then, a Mammothmon attacked, but Garudamon defeated it.
Four years later, when the evil Digimon known as the Daemon Corps appeared on Earth, the human, Oikawa, and his creations, Arukenimon and Mummymon, headed for Highton View Terrace in their truck. Oikawa had duplicated the Dark Spore within Ken Ichijouji, and implanted it into various other kidnapped children. At Highton View Terrace, while being pursued by Davis, Raidramon and Wormmon, the truck was halted by Daemon himself, who demanded Ken be handed over. The DigiDestined struck back, and battle ensued. The kids theorised that they could send Daemon back into the DigiWorld, but he just laughed. Lifting his arms up, Daemon opened the Highton View Terrace gateway of his own accord - he could open digital gateways on his own, so sending him to the DigiWorld would do nothing. Ken drew on the dark power within him, and converted the Highton View Terrace gate into a gate to the World of Darkness, through which Daemon was sent. Oikawa told the kidnapped children to remember Highton View Terrace, because one day, he would call them all back there.
Shortly, the DigiDestined Digimon in the DigiWorld tried to secure the Highton View Terrace gate by sealing it with tiles. When Oikawa, who had absorbed the energy from a Dark Spore's flower, fatally injured BlackWarGreymon, the dark Digimon used what remained of his strength to energise the seal, shutting the Highton View Terrace gate with his dying act.
Not long after that, Oikawa recalled the children he had implanted with Dark Spores to Highton View Terrace, where he used his laptop to manipulate the key cards, planning to open the gate to the DigiWorld. However, the gateway that opened led into a bizarre, warped dimension, where it came to light that Myotismon's spirit had been possessing Oikawa and controlling his actions.
Chronologically speaking, Highton View Terrace first appears in "Digimon: The Movie." It first appears in the series in "Return to Highton View Terrace." Its Japanese name is "Hikarigaoka," which means "Hill of Light."
Hiroshi was among the last of the children to be gathered by Arukenimon and Mummymon as the DigiDestined were returning from their “world tour,” and was the first child to step forward and be implanted with a Dark Spore by Oikawa.
After the kids were rescued, the DigiDestined kept watch on them, but a group of them were turned away from Hiroshi’s house by his mother. He watched them leave through the blinds, and as the Dark Spore began to affect him, thought of them as insects that needed to be squashed.
Hiroshi wound up in the dream dimension with the other children, where his Dark Spore flowered and was absorbed by Myotismon, who became MaloMyotismon. To defeat him, the DigiDestined made the Dark Spore kids believe in their lost dreams again, and in doing so, they became DigiDestined themselves – Hiroshi, who’s dream was to draw comics, became partners with a Nyokimon.
Hiroshi first appears in “Digimon World Tour, Pt. 3.”
"HIS MASTER'S VOICE"
Digimon Adventure 02 episode #13
English version written by Craig Doyle
Kari is suffering from recurring nightmares, and gets transported into the enigmatic World of Darkness by the mysterious Scubamon. T.K., Gatomon and Patamon follow her, and Gatomon Digivolves into Angewomon to save her.
Episode Trivia - The title of this episode comes from the name of the 1899 painting by Francis Barraud, which featuring Barraud’s dog, Nipper, listening to a recording of his masters voice of a phonograph, puzzled as to where the voice was coming from.
Hogan is Gennai’s Australian counterpart. He appeared to help out Cody and Joe when they were in Australia trying to round up all the wild Digimon that had appeared there. He baffled them at first, appearing dressed as Santa Claus, but quickly mobilised them, along with Derek, one of the Australian DigiDestined.
Hogan appears in “Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2.” His voice is supplied by Neil Kaplan.
Name: In the original Japanese version, Hogan’s name was “Eucalyptus.” This was changed for the American version. It is thought that most of the counterparts are named after people relevant to the countries they represent – as such it is largely believed that Hogan is named for Paul Hogan, the star of the famous Australian movie, “Crocodile Dundee.”
"HOME AWAY FROM HOME"
Digimon Adventure episode #21
English version written by Dayna Barron and J.M. Morris
Tai returns to the real world with Koromon, and discovers that time moves much faster in the DigiWorld, as it's still the same day that he left for camp. He learns that his sister, Kari, somehow knows about Digimon, and that Digimon travelling between dimensions are causing the freak weather systems that plague Earth. After a battle with Ogremon, Tai goes back to the DigiWorld.
HOPE, DIGI-EGG OF
The Digi-Egg of Hope belongs to T.K. of the DigiDestined, and is used on Patamon to Armour Digivolve him into Pegasusmon. When Flamedramon, Halsemon and Digmon were battling a squad of the Digimon Emperor’s Tyrannomon, T.K., Kari, and their Digimon (unable to Digivolve due to Control Spires), fled the battle scene, and came across a cave, in which they found the Digi-Eggs of Hope and Light. They used them on Patamon and Gatomon, who became Pegasusmon and Nefertimon, and quickly rounded up the Tyrannomon. The Digi-Egg of Hope was then stored within T.K.’s D-Terminal, to be called on whenever it was needed to Armour Digivolve Patamon.
When the kids were in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension, that world’s magic allowed the Digimon to split into all their forms at once. The Digi-Egg of Hope transformed into Pegasusmon, who then faded away when the Digimon tried to enter the DigiWorld.
The Digi-Egg of Hope first appears in “A New Digitude.”
HOPE, CREST OF
The Crest of Hope is the Crest of T.K. of the DigiDestined. T.K. was the sixth of the kids to find his Crest, in the pyramid of Etemon, while the kids were in the process of trying to rescue Datamon. When Tai went missing after the final battle with Etemon, DemiDevimon tried to prevent TK's Crest from glowing, but when Tai returned, his plans were halted. It was not until the final battle with Piedmon that TK's Crest actually glowed and allowed Angemon to Digivolve to his Ultimate stage of MagnaAngemon. The Crest of Hope, along with the other kids Crests, was destroyed by Apocalymon.
The Crest of Hope first appears in "The Prisoner of the Pyramid." It is destroyed in "Now Apocalymon."
