Machinedramon is one of the Dark Masters, and ruler of the digital city. When the Dark Masters took control of the DigiWorld and reformatted it, Machinedramon created for himself a city, appearing as an amalgam of major cities in the real world, such as New York, Paris and Rome. When the DigiDestined returned to the DigiWorld after their battle with Myotismon on Earth, all four Dark Masters attacked them. Machinedramon used his Giga Cannon attack to blast open the ground and send the DigiDestined and their Digimon tumbling into an abyss.
After the DigiDestined had defeated MetalSeadramon and Puppetmon, it was Machinedramon's turn. Kari fell ill during the DigiDestined's journey, and when Kabuterimon located a city, she was quickly airlifted to it. However, what they didn't realised was that this city was Machinedramon's city. When they went to a nearby hospital to search for medicine for Kari, Izzy logged on to the city's network, inadvertently tipping of Machinedramon and his forces to their location. They managed to escape the legions of robotic Digimon Machinedramon sent against them, but were then set upon by Machinedramon himself, who destroyed the building they were hiding in, sending them plummeting into the sewers. Sora, T.K. and Kari were separated from Tai and Izzy, and came across an underground slave camp of Numemon, being run by WaruMonzaemon. When their Digimon defeated him in battle, he contacted Machinedramon. Machinedramon destroyed WaruMonzaemon for his incompetence, and then arrived in the sewers himself to find and destroy the kids. He first came across Tai and Izzy, who had met up with Andromon. Andromon battled Machinedramon, taking the fight through the sewers, and finding Sora, T.K. and Kari along the way, but even with the help of Birdramon, Angemon and Angewomon, could not defeat him. The Numemon that Kari and the others had freed swarmed over Machinedramon, trying to stop him, but he vaporised them all with his Giga Cannon attack. Light from Kari's Crest released at this point energised Agumon, allowing him to Warp-Digivolve to WarGreymon. WarGreymon then "sliced Machinedramon like an onion," literally hacking the mechanical beast to pieces, destroying him.
Machinedramon first appears in "Enter The Dark Masters." He appears for a few seconds in "Sea-Sick and Tired" and "Playing Games," and then finally fights the DigiDestined on his own terms and turf in "My Sister's Keeper" and "The Crest of Light." His voice is supplied by Dave Guerrie.
Name: From the words "machine" and "dragon," which "dra" is short for.
Group: Angel - Level: Ultimate - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Gate of Destiny, Angel Rod
MagnaAngemon Digivolves from Angemon, the Champion level Digimon partner of T.K. of the DigiDestined. He wields an energy blade dubbed "Excalibur," and his awesome attack is the Gate of Destiny, which opens a portal to oblivion and sucks through his opponents. He has one other technique, called the "MagnaAntidote." Quite how it works is unclear, but one would assume it is a universal healing ability.
Despite the fact that T.K. gained his Crest relatively early on in the kids' adventures, it was some time before it actually glowed. While fighting Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters, all the kids, save for Kari, T.K. and Angemon had been turned into key chains by the villain's magic. Angemon battled him, but was hurled from the top of his fortress. Piedmon cut the rope that T.K. and Kari were using to escape, and they followed him. As he fell, T.K. realised that even now, he couldn't give up - he had to do his best, for his brother, for Angemon, and for everyone. Energised with his hope, T.K.'s Crest began to glow, and Angemon finally Digivolved to MagnaAngemon. MagnaAngemon saved T.K. and Kari, and then reclaimed the key chains from Piedmon, knocking him from his fortress. He then used his MagnaAntidote technique to restore everyone to normal. When Piedmon attacked again with his Vilemon army, MagnaAngemon opened his Gate of Destiny, sucking in all the Vilemon. WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon then blasted Piedmon through the gate, which shut behind him.
Then, the kids were immediately plunged into battle with Apocalymon. MagnaAngemon and the other Ultimates battled him, but Apocalymon destroyed the Crests and deleted the kids and their Digimon. However, while floating in digital limbo, the kids realised that the power had not been from the Crests - it had been inside them all along. They reconstituted their digital bodies, and the Digimon Digivolved to Ultimate again, to defeat Apocalymon.
In May 2000, Patamon lost his ability to Digivolve to Ultimate when T.K. and the other kids gave up the powers of their Crests to seal the DigiWorld off from evil.
Four years later, when the new DigiDestined were attempting to stop BlackWarGreymon from destroying the Destiny Stones, Angemon was exposed to the power of the fourth stone, and the energy boost allowed him to Digivolve into MagnaAngemon. MagnaAngemon battled BlackWarGreymon, and actually had him on the ropes, ready to send him through the Gate of Destiny, until BlackWarGreymon destroyed the Destiny Stones, cutting off MagnaAngemons source of power, and reverting him to Patamon.
At Christmas, Gennai arrived on Earth, and used Azulongmons Digi-Core to give the original eight Digimon a power boost, restoring their ability to Digivolve to Ultimate. Patamon headed to Paris with T.K., Tai and Agumon, to round up the wild Digimon that had appeared there. Patamon Digivolved into Angemon, and then into MagnaAngemon to battle Giromon and the Mamemon Brothers. He destroyed the Control Spire in Paris with Excalibur, and Giromon and Mamemons were sent back to the DigiWorld.
When all the DigiDestined regrouped in Tokyo, they found that more Digimon had appeared on Earth this time, they were the evil Daemon Corps. MagnaAngemon joined in the fight against SkullSatamon, but was defeated. The original eight Digimon sacrificed their power to Digivolve to Ultimate once again, giving their energy to Imperialdramon, enabling him to Mode Change to his Fighter Mode.
MagnaAngemon appeared once more, in the dream dimension of MaloMyotismon. T.K. and the other DigiDestined used the mystic nature of the dimension to make their dreams come true, and Patamon separated into all his forms - Angemon, MagnaAngemon, Pegasusmon and Shakkoumon joined with all the other stages to battle MaloMyotismon, but when he crossed the border to the DigiWorld, only the "real" incarnation of Patamon could cross over, and so Shakkoumon went across, while the MagnaAngemon avatar faded away.
MagnaAngemon first appears in "Piedmon's
Last Jest." His voice is supplied by Dave

Group: Dragon Level: Mega Type: Vaccine Attack Techniques: Fire Tornado, Dragon Fire
Magnadramon is the Mega level form of Gatomon, the Digimon partner of Kari of the DigiDestined. When Kokomon, the rogue Digimon partner of Willis, a DigiDestined from Colorado in his own Mega form of Kerpymon confronted the new DigiDestined Digimon in battle, he reversed time, transforming Davis, Yolei, Cody, T.K., Kari and Willis back into toddlers. In an effort to stop him, Angewomon and Angemon drew upon all their energy, and Digivolved into their Mega forms of Magnadramon and Seraphimon. Then, Magnadramon and Seraphimon summoned the Golden Digi-Eggs, in hopes of empowering the other Digimon, enabling them to defeat Kokomon. Magnadramon released the Digi-Egg of Destiny, and then she and Seraphimon were cut down by Kokomon, and she reverted back into Gatomon. Willis then used the Digi-Egg of Destiny to Armour Digivolve Terriermon into Rapidmon, who, with Magnamon, defeated Kokomon.
Magnadramon appears in Digimon: The Movie. Her voice is supplied by Edie Mirman. The portion of the movie in which she appears is supposed to be out of continuity (though it has been shoehorned in by the dubbers), and as such, the events of this part of the movie do not impact on the ongoing series, which is why Gatomon cannot Digivolve to Magnadramon in the anime.
Name: From magnate, a Latin word meaning a person of great importance, and dragon, which dra is short for.
Group: Warrior Level: Armour Type: Vaccine Attack Techniques: Magna Blast, Magna Explosion
Magnamon is the Golden Armour form of Veemon, the Digimon partner of Davis of the DigiDestined, created by the Digi-Egg of Miracles. Magnamon has appeared only twice, and to complicate matters, one of these appearances is out of continuity, while the other is in, leading to them contradicting each other.
Appearance One - Having been reverted to their Rookie forms during their battle with Kerpymon, the Mega form of Kokomon (the rogue Digimon partner of Willis, a DigiDestined from Colorado), Veemon, Hawkmon, Armadillomon and Terriermon were on the verge of defeat, until Angemon and Angewomon arrived to turn the tide. Kerpymon used his powers to reverse time, transforming the kids back into toddlers, and Angemon and Angewomon had to call upon all their energy, enabling them to Digivolve to their own Mega forms of Seraphimon and Magnadramon. They then released the Golden Digi-Eggs, and Davis and Willis used them on their Digimon. Using the Digi-Egg of Miracles, Veemon Golden Armour Digivolved into Magnamon, and, along with Rapidmon, attacked Kerpymon. Their attacks did little damage, as Kerpymon continuously healed himself after each injury, and then swallowed the two Digimon. Inside of him, guided by the small part of him that was still untainted, Magnamon and Rapidmon destroyed the virus, restoring him to his Vaccine form. Kerpymon then deleted, no longer able to heal his wounds, and Veemon and Terriermon floated down from the sky. This adventure is supposed to be out of continuity.
Appearance Two As the Digimon Emperor cut a swathe of destruction across the DigiWorld with Kimeramon, the DigiDestined managed to enter his base, and fought their way through his forces. Wormmon, determined to stop the Emperors mad plans, led Davis to the fortresss engine room, where Davis found the Digi-Egg of Miracles and removed it, shutting down the base. The Digi-Egg then activated, and Davis used it to transform Veemon into Magnamon.
Magnamon then engaged Kimeramon (who had turned against the Emperor, although the Emperor didnt realise it) in battle, heavily damaging the fortress. The crippled base fell from the sky as the DigiDestined evacuated, while Magnamon and Kimeramon continued to fight. Magnamon began to run out of energy, and was seized by Kimeramon, who threatened to crush him. Wormmon, in a last attempt to stop the Emperor and make him see the error of his ways, managed to free Magnamon, and then gave him the remainder of his own energy. Magnamon, re-energised by Wormmons sacrifice, used his Magna Explosion attack to destroy Kimeramon. Magnamon then reverted to DemiVeemon, and the Digi-Egg of Miracles transformed into its original form of the Crest of Kindness.
The conflict between these two appearances is due to the different origins for the Digi-Egg of Miracles given in each. Read the Golden Digi-Eggs and Digi-Egg of Miracles entry for any more details.
Magnamon first appears in Digimon: The Movie. Even in Japan, this part of the movie was released before the TV episodes showcasing him were aired. He first appears in the anime in a cameo at the end of The Darkness Before Dawn, which leads right into The Crest of Kindness. Its hard to say which of these appearances comes first chronologically speaking (most people would say it was the movie, but nothing is known for absolute certain), but as one appearance is supposed to be out of continuity, it doesnt really matter.

Group: Evil - Level: Mega Type: Virus Attack Techniques: Screaming Darkness, Crimson Mist, Mental Illusion
MaloMyotismon is an alternate Mega for Myotismons Digivolutionary line, with more potential for power than even VenomMyotismon. His Screaming Darkness attack protects pure darkness on his opponents, while his Crimson Mist attack consists of a powerful acidic spray. He is capable of reading the minds of others, and feeds off of fear and despair.
After being destroyed as VenomMyotismon, the data of the evil Digimon overlord, Myotismon, floated aimlessly in the real world, with nowhere to go. When the DigiWorld appeared in the sky, Myotismon found what he was looking for a host. Yukio Oikawa, who had learned of the DigiWorld as a child, and had always wanted to go there, was stunned to see the DigiWorld appear before him, and pleaded with the DigiDestined too far away to even hear him to take him with them as they left. Myotismon heard his pleas, and made him an offer soothe your heart with darkness, and I will take you there! Oikawa, not even fully understanding, agreed to Myotismons terms, and Myotismons data entered his body, possessing him.
As time passed, Oikawa was unaware that Myotismon was inside of him, manipulating his actions. Myotismon engineered the creation of Arukenimon and Mummymon, and had them act out his plans to disrupt the barriers of DigiWorld, which would allow him to enter it. But the new DigiDestined continuously foiled his plans, and so, he needed to get his hands dirty. While on the run from Daemon and his corps, Myotismon had Oikawa replicate the Dark Spore within Ken, and implant it into various other unwitting children. Oikawa thought that it would allow him to enter the DigiWorld, but instead, Myotismon planned to use them as a power source to all him to be reborn.
When a girl named Norikos Spore flowered prematurely, Oikawa absorbed its power, and Myotismon took over his body momentarily, fatally injuring BlackWarGreymon, who had discovered that Myotismon was inside of Oikawa. With the last of his strength, BlackWarGreymon sealed the DigiWorld gate at Highton View Terrace, preventing Myotismon from gaining access.
Instead, Myotismon had Oikawa use the key cards to open a gateway to another dimension, where he finally revealed the truth, and exited Oikawas body, taking on Oikawas own form. Then, he absorbed the power from the Dark Spores, and transformed himself into MaloMyotismon. His first act was to dispense with Arukenimon and Mummymon, no longer having any use for them, taking the opportunity to test out his mind-reading powers. He scanned Arukenimons thoughts, and then acted out her fears, toying with her before he destroyed her. He then calmly melted Mummymon with his Crimson Mist attack, and turned his attention to the DigiDestined. The kids were all terrified, except Davis, whose courage energised ExVeemon, enabling him to do some damage to MaloMyotismon in a one-on-one battle. MaloMyotismon used his Mental Illusion technique to manipulate the energies of the dimension, plunging the DigiDestined into illusions of their greatest desires, so they would trouble him no longer. However, he had not counted on Davis, who was happy with his life, and had no concerns or dreams of his own. Davis helped free the kids from their illusion, and then they used the power of the dimension to their own ends, making all their Digimon Digivolve to their separate forms at once. All of the Digimon teamed up against MaloMyotismon, dealing him a severe pummelling, until a twin attack from the two Imperialdramons Positron Lasers ripped a hole in the fabric of the dimension, through which MaloMyotismon fled into the DigiWorld. He then absorbed the darkness there, and grew to immense proportions, using his Screaming Darkness attack to beat back the Digimon, and then beginning his grand plan to shroud both worlds in the power of his darkness, making him ruler of both! Soon, all the Digimon of the worlds DigiDestined arrived on the scene, and, acting light beacons, weakening MaloMyotismon with their light, they summoned their human partners into the DigiWorld. However, the children implanted with the Dark Spores believed that victory was impossible... and MaloMyotismon began to feed off their fear once more. The DigiDestined managed to get them to talk about their dreams, which they realised were not as meaningless as they had been led to believe. Weakened by this positive energy, MaloMyotismons body began to discorporate, and his spirit floated into the sky, trying to spread itself. The DigiDestined of the world all united their power, and used their Digivices to energise Imperialdramon, who used his Giga Crusher attack to obliterate Myotismons spirit for good.
MaloMyotismon first appears in silhouette form in BlackWarGreymons Destiny. He appears in the flesh in Oikawas Shame. His voice is supplied by Richard Epcar.

The first Mammothmon the DigiDestined encountered was a minion of Myotismon. When the kids were back at Highton View Terrace, remembering a Digimon battle they had seen there four years prior, Mammothmon attacked them. Garudamon gave battle, in a bizarre parody of the battle of four years ago, and defeated him with relative ease.
Four years later, numerous Mammothmon appeared at various times, during the adventures of the new DigiDestined. The first herd of Mammothmon to appear then were not actually real Mammothmon, but were instead unliving Digimon, created by Arukenimon from two hundred Control Spires to battle her renegade creation, BlackWarGreymon. BlackWarGreymon tore into the Mammothmon, and defeated them with terrifying ease.
Some time later, when Arukenimon opened all the Digi-Ports, and wild Digimon appeared all over the world, numerous (notably docile) Mammothmon were seen on the India/China border, and another, more aggressive herd of them caused havoc in Siberia, as some unnamed Russian DigiDestineds Frigimon attempted to hold them off. Yolei, Sora and the Russian DigiDestined Anna, Sonya and Yuri arrived to try and corral the Mammothmon, but didnt have the strength. Thankfully, Imperialdramon arrived in time to stop the Mammothmon, and they were sent back to the DigiWorld.
Some Mammothmon were also seen during the final battle with MaloMyotismon.
A Mammothmon first appears in "Return

Name: From the word "mammoth," a prehistoric elephant-like creature.
Maria is one of the American DigiDestined, partnered with a Centarumon. When Digimon were appearing all over the real world, Maria showed up in Rockafeller Centre to help Davis, Mimi, Michael and the other American DigiDestined subdue an irate Cherrymon.
Maria and her Centarumon appeared again some time later, when MaloMyotismon was attempting to infect both worlds with darkness.

MarineDevimon is a member of the Daemon Corps. Huge in height, and equally as deadly on land as he is in water, MarineDevimon spews poisonous, flaming ink from his mouth.
MarineDevimon first appeared in the waters of Odaiba bay, to menace a cruise ship on which a wedding was taking place. T.K. and Cody helped the ships passengers get to safety, as their Digimon battled MarineDevimon. The villain fled when Zudomon arrived on the scene.
MarineDevimon reared his head again less than an hour later, as the kids pursued the truck in which Ken had been taken away. MarineDevimon smashed his way through the district, and then engaged Shakkoumon in battle by a hospital, as T.K., Cody and Jim Kido helped evacuate the patients. When one of MarineDevimons tentacles smashed through the wall, Cody screamed, and Shakkoumon used his Justice Beam to destroy MarineDevimon. Cody was stunned as he watched the tentacle delete in front of him, but realised that it had been the only way.
MarineDevimon first appears in Invasion of the Daemon Corps. His voice is supplied by Tom Wyner.
Name: From marine, and devil, for which devi is short.
Yamato Ishida, nicknamed Matt, is a member of the DigiDestined, partnered with Gabumon and holder of the Crest of Friendship. Matt's little brother is T.K., and before their parents divorce, they lived in Highton View Terrace, where they witnessed the battle between Greymon and Parrotmon. Over time, their memories of the event faded, and the brothers were then split up when their parents divorced. Their father received custody of Matt, while their mother got custody of T.K., and took him to live outside of Odaiba. As such, Matt and T.K. do not see each other as much as they would like, and Matt sometimes has trouble being the brother he should. Matt's dad means well, but he is sometimes not as considerate as he could be. Matt thought that his family didn't want him, and so he decided to keep to himself, not making friends - not becoming close to anyone, so he could never be hurt.
Shortly after their arrival in the DigiWorld, the kids came across a lake, with a strange boxcar sitting on a small island there, connected to the shore by land bridge. Matt was still trying to learn how to take care of his brother without anyone else's help, and came off as short-tempered a few times. However, while Matt and Gabumon stood watch as the others slept, they were attacked by Seadramon. Gabumon Digivolved to Garurumon for the first time to save Matt from the serpent's clutches.
It was after the kids were separated by Devimon and sent to different chunks of the broken up File Island that Matt had his first major clash with Tai, the group's leader. Matt had been sent to a frozen tundra area, and despite Gabumon's warnings, wandered through the blizzard at night to try and find T.K.. Gabumon protected him from the cold with his fur, but when Tai and Agumon arrived the next morning, Matt flew into a rage when Tai made light of the kids' situation. The two boys began to fist fight, until the scuffle was broken up by Mojyamon, who had been infected by one of Devimon's Black Gears. Greymon and Garurumon defeated him, but the seeds of bitterness between Matt and Tai were sown.
After defeating Devimon, the kids headed to the continent of Server. After Tai found his Crest, more arguments with Matt followed, as he took it upon himself to protect everyone. After Greymon corruptly Digivolved to SkullGreymon, Tai realised his foolhardiness, but Matt was not as forgiving as Sora.
While at Piximon's training ground, Matt and Izzy set out in search of their Crests. While talking about why they wanted their Crests, Matt said he wanted his to "Digivolve himself" - he wanted to learn from the experiences the Crest would give him, to grow and mature, to become a better person. He and Izzy found their Crests, but inadvertently tipped Etemon off to their presence. Greymon dispatched the minion he sent, Tyrannomon.
After Tai was sucked back to Earth during the final battle with Etemon, the DigiDestined slowly broke up without his leadership. Soon, only Matt and T.K. were left with their Digimon. Matt set out across a lake, promising T.K. he would be back in a few hours. However, weeks later, he had not returned, and T.K. meanwhile fell victim to the machinations of DemiDevimon. What had actually happened was that Matt and Gabumon had come across Joe and Gomamon, washing dishes in the kitchen of Digitamamon's diner to pay their bill. Matt agreed to help out to get the job done faster, but DemiDevimon targeted him too, causing accidents and making it seem as though they were Joe's fault, thus preventing Matt's Crest from glowing. However, when Tai returned, he saved T.K. from DemiDevimon, and they headed to the island, and implicated DemiDevimon as the cause of the trouble. Matt's Crest began to glow when Joe saved T.K. from Vegiemon, and Garurumon Digivolved to WereGarurumon to destroy Digitamamon.
When the DigiDestined returned to Earth to stop the plans of DemiDevimon's master, Myotismon, Matt and T.K. took the subway back to their homes. When T.K. and Patamon had an argument, Patamon flew away, and Matt, T.K. and Gabumon went looking for him. Instead, they found Pumpkinmon and Gotsumon, two of Myotismon's minions, who were helping him search for the Eighth Child - the predestined eighth member of the DigiDestined. However, they were more interested in having fun, and made friends with the kids. However, Myotismon showed up and destroyed the two slackers, then turned on Matt and T.K.. WereGarurumon was unable to defeat Myotismon, but Angemon helped beat him back.
When the Eighth Child was revealed to be Kari, Tai's little sister, Myotismon made his power play, and abducted the entire population of Odaiba, save a few. Matt's dad revealed to Matt that he somehow knew what Digimon were, and left him with Gabumon as he went to the TV station, the source of Myotismon's power. Tai left Kari in Matt's care, as he went to get information, and then Sora arrived to help Matt take care of Kari. When Phantomon, another of Myotismon's minions, attacked with Tuskmon and Snimon, Matt was almost badly injured, until Kari gave herself up to stop the violence. Matt and WereGarurumon were some of the first to be on the scene as Myotismon prepared to kill Kari, and again battled the vampire overlord. As the other kids and their Digimon arrived, Kari finally obtained her Digivice and Crest, thanks to the sacrifice of Wizardmon, and was able to Digivolve her Digimon, Gatomon, into Angewomon, who destroyed Myotismon.
When Myotismon returned as VenomMyotismon, Matt and Tai, in accordance with an ancient prophecy unearthed by Gennai, allowed themselves to be struck by arrows of Hope and Light from Angemon and Angewomon. This allowed Agumon and Gabumon to Warp-Digivolve into their Mega stages of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon, who destroyed VenomMyotismon. With his destruction, a rift to the DigiWorld opened again, and the kids realised they had to go back. Sombre, Matt said his goodbyes to his parents, thinking their caring attitude meant nothing.
After the kids defeated MetalSeadramon, the first of the Dark Masters - four evil Mega level Digimon who had conquered the DigiWorld - Matt's remorse bubbled to the surface, and he took it out on Tai. Screaming at him, he claimed he wanted to do nothing but fight, and didn't care about the feelings of anyone else. Sora broke the fight up, but the grudges remained. Shortly thereafter, when T.K. was captured by Puppetmon, Matt went into a panic. The kids were attacked by Kiwimon, who was sent to distract them with Puppetmon played his deadly games with T.K.. Matt demanded that Kiwimon tell them where T.K. was, but Tai said they needed to defeat him in battle first. Matt snapped, and screamed at Tai: "First we find T.K., then we fight YOUR war!" Matt tried to have Gabumon Digivolve... but his Crest... had lost its glow. When Birdramon destroyed Kiwimon, Matt yelled at Sora also, fearing that they would never find T.K.. However, seconds later, T.K. appeared, having escaped Puppetmon on his own.
Realisation hit hard for Matt. He thought that his purpose had been to look after T.K. - the way he saw it, he had no other use. But now that T.K. was able to take care of himself... what use was he? Matt skulked off into the forest, wanting to be alone with his thoughts. He explained to Gabumon that, despite his wishes, he felt he had not grown as a person in any way. Gabumon tried to convince him otherwise, but then, Cherrymon, another of Puppetmon's minions, appeared, and used his powers to convince Matt that it was Tai's fault he was unable to grow. Gabumon decided to convince Matt that friendship DID matter - by standing by him, no matter what. The Crest's glow returned, and Gabumon Digivolved to MetalGarurumon - who wound up battling WarGreymon, as Matt and Tai fist fought. Matt didn't want to be a DigiDestined; he could not see what use he was to the team, and wanted to know who had picked them for the task. The fight was interrupted by a mysterious entity from the DigiWorld's past, which possessed Kari's body, and showed the kids the true story behind their selection as the DigiDestined. Matt realised he had been wrong - but he still needed to 'find himself.' He and Gabumon left the team.
Matt returned very briefly, to help the other kids defeat Puppetmon, telling him that he could never be victorious, as he had no friendship in his life. MetalGarurumon destroyed Puppetmon with his Metal Wolf Claw, but Matt hastily left again.
While wandering the DigiWorld, Matt and Gabumon came across a cave, which somehow fed off of Matt's fears and misery. Matt sank into depression, and the cave began to absorb him, until Gabumon snapped him out of it by biting his leg. Matt released his pent-up feelings, telling Gabumon about how he felt no-one wanted him, and how he only fought with Tai because of jealously - he was jealous of the fact that Tai had always been a better brother to T.K. than he had been. Matt and Gabumon promised to be "friends for life," and the cave disappeared around them. They then met up with Joe and Gomamon, and had to free Sora from the same cave, which, this time, was feeding on her fear of her own inadequacies. The succeeded, and headed back to the peak of Spiral Mountain, where MetalGarurumon joined WarGreymon in battling Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters, as Tai and Matt reconciled their differences, and admitted that their friendship was one of the most important things to them.
During the ensuing battle, Matt and Tai were quickly turned into key chains by Piedmon's magic, but were later restored by MagnaAngemon's MagnaAntidote. After Piedmon was defeated, the kids were immediately attacked by Apocalymon, the DigiWorld's ultimate evil. He destroyed their Crests, and deleted their digital bodies... but the kids then realised that the power was not in the Crests, but had been inside them all along. They reconstituted their forms, and used their Digivices to turn the power of Apocalymon's Total Annihilation attack against him, destroying him. The DigiWorld was reformatted to normalcy, and Gabumon and Matt said their goodbyes.
Eight months later, when Diaboromon menaced the Internet, Matt and T.K. were visiting their grandmother in the country. The elderly woman wasn't quite all there, and Tai couldn't quite manage to convey the fact that he needed to speak to them over the phone. After Kabuterimon and Greymon were defeated in battle, Tai finally contacted Matt via their computers, and WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon came into play to battle Diaboromon and stop the nuclear launch he had instigated. Both of the Digimon were defeated, but when e-mails of hope, sent by children around the world watching the battle on their computers, were received, their energy re-powered the two Megas - and they fused their forms into one, new, more powerful Digimon - Omnimon! With thirty seconds to go, Izzy rerouted the kids' e-mails, slowing down Diaboromon's motions, allowing Omnimon to impale him through the head, destroying him and terminating the launch.
In May 2000, Matt and the other DigiDestined were called back into the DigiWorld by Gennai, and instructed to release the powers of their Crests, creating a seal that would protect the DigiWorld from evil. However, as a side effect, Gabumon and the Digimon lost their ability to Digivolve to Ultimate. Also, Matt moved beyond his simple harmonica, and began to play bass guitar. He and some of his friends formed a band, which they called The Teenage Wolves, who soon became popular in Odaiba.
Four years later, when the Digimon Emperor began his takeover, Matt was unable to travel to the DigiWorld with Tai, Izzy and Sora because he had a band rehearsal. A short time later, though, after playing a gig and meeting June Motomiya, Matt headed for the DigiWorld with the new DigiDestined, in response to a distress call from Gabumon. They managed to liberate the village of Santa Caria from the Emperors hold, destroying his Control Spire there.
When Kari was trapped in the city of Gardromon, Matts job was to create a cover story for Davis, who had gone with T.K. to rescue her. Unfortunately for Matt, June (Daviss sister), realised that he was lying, but promised not to tell her parents if Matt agreed to go on a date with her. Matt was left in a daze as she shut the door in his face, wondering how that had happened.
When the Emperor gained control of MetalGreymon via a Dark Spiral, Matt and Tai joined up with the new DigiDestined to pursue and rescue him. They were sidetracked along the way, however, by the discovery of the Digi-Egg of Friendship. Matt was unable to lift it, and nor were any of the other DigiDestined, although Davis didnt even try properly. Garurumon arrived to help try and destroy the Dark Spiral on MetalGreymon, but it was only when Davis came to terms with his fears of hurting MetalGreymon that the Digi-Egg activated, and Veemon became Raidramon to help Matt and Garurumon destroy the Spiral and free Agumon.
When the kids were celebrating the anniversaries of their first trip to the DigiWorld, and the defeat of Myotismon, T.K. visited Matt and their father. The next day, Matt and T.K. took a walk in town, where they recalled their encounter with Gotsumon and Pumpkinmon. The day after that, the kids were all confronted by Wizardmons ghost, which gave them a cryptic warning for the future.
When the location of the Digimon Emperors base was discovered, the new DigiDestined resolved to stay in the DigiWorld until it had been destroyed. Matt, Tai and Izzy all went on a camping trip to act as a cover story for them. June wanted to come along, but before Matt let her get in the van, she told her to close her eyes so he could give her a present. She complied... and Matt told his dad to drive off!
Matt, Tai and Izzy were kept informed of everything going on in the DigiWorld, until the Emperor was defeated at which point June arrived at the campsite. Matt wound up taking the bus home with her she apparently wasnt bothered by his abject screams of horror.
Some time later, when the DigiDestined were attempting to stop BlackWarGreymon from destroying the Destiny Stones, Cody had a talk with Matt, as he had noticed changes in T.K.s personality when the powers of darkness ever got involved in their adventures. Matt explained to Cody about how T.K. had lost Angemon four years before, during the battle with Devimon, and how he had never really gotten over that fear. Matt then called T.K. to let him know about Codys worries.
At Christmas, Matt and his band had a major gig lined up, which was apparently televised. Before the show went on, Sora came to deliver some homemade cookies to him. When Tai asked her if she was going the concert with anyone, she said that he wanted to be free, in case Matt was available afterwards. Tai was dismayed to discover Soras affection for Matt, but still encouraged her to give him the cookies.
Once the show had begun, in the middle of a performance of Turn Around, a DarkTyrannomon and some Bakemon smashed their way into the auditorium, having travelled through a Digi-Port that had been opened by Arukenimon, who had also brought a Control Spire to Earth. As the auditorium crumbled, Matt raced to save Sora from debris (having reciprocated her affection off-screen). Once the Armour Digimon destroyed the Spire, Matt and the others had their Digimon Digivolve to round up the wild Digimon and send them back to the DigiWorld.
The following day, Digimon began to appear all over the world as Arukenimon opened Digi-Ports across the globe. Gabumon and the other Digimon had their power to Digivolve to Ultimate restored by an energy boost from Azulongmons Digi-Core, courtesy of Gennai. Matt and Gabumon then headed to Mexico City with Ken and Wormmon to round up the wild Digimon there. With help from Josť, Gennais Mexican counterpart, they managed to get inside some Mayan ruins, where they met Rosa, a Mexican DigiDestined, and her partner, a Gotsumon. They then found a Minotarumon and a Dokugumon inside the ruins, and Matt and Gabumon angered them so that they would chase them outside. Gabumon became WereGarurumon, and he, Stingmon and Monochromon (the Digivolved form of Rosas Gotsumon) defeated them and sent them back to the DigiWorld.
Back in Odaiba the next day, the Daemon Corps appeared, searching for Ken, and the Dark Spore within him. Matt, Sora, Yolei and their Digimon came to aid Kari and Angewomon against LadyDevimon, who fled at the sight of reinforcements. WereGarurumon was then defeated in battle by SkullSatamon, and he and the other original seven Digimon gave up their power to Digivolve to Ultimate once again, to energise Imperialdramon, allowing him to Mode Change to his Fighter Mode to destroy the villain.
Matt and the other DigiDestined helped to keep watch on the children that Oikawa had implanted with Dark Spores. After BlackWarGreymons death, he, Joe, Izzy, and the new DigiDestined were all keeping watch on Highton View Terrace, as the Spore-implanted kids began to return there, at Oikawas command, while Tai and Sora trailed Noriko, whose Spore had already flowered. Izzy asked Matt if he was bothered by Sora being with Tai, and Matt replied by saying that he trusted both of them. Then, Oikawa arrived, and opened the portal to what he thought was the DigiWorld. The new DigiDestined raced through it, after him, as Matt tried but failed to stop them.
Within an hour, the world was blanketed with darkness, as MaloMyotismon began to infect both worlds with his dark energy. Matt and the other DigiDestined went to the summer camp they had gone to four years before, with their families in tow, and travelled through the gate there, into the DigiWorld, along with all the other DigiDestined from all over the world. The power of the hopes and dreams of the Spore children destroyed MaloMyotismons body, and then everyone used their Digivices to give Imperialdramon a power boost, enabling him to use his Giga Crusher attack to destroy Myotismons spirit.
Three months later, it was discovered that Diaboromon had survived his battle with Omnimon four years beforehand, and had spent the time in between reproducing himself as millions of Kuramon. The Kuramon were beginning to appear in the real world by transmitting themselves through e-mail, so while the newer DigiDestined set about rounding them up, Matt, Tai and Omnimon headed into the Internet to battle Diaboromon again. With help from Kari, T.K., Angemon and Angewomon, they succeeded, but Davis had played into Diaboromon's hands, having demanded the gate be opened for him so he could follow Kari in. Yolei opened the gate so wide that even though Diaboromon had been destroyed, all the Kuramon were able to escape through the gate into the real world, where they merged into Armageddemon in Tokyo Harbour. Omnimon was immobilised by Armageddemon as Matt and Tai could only watch, stunned - then, Sora arrived and brought them both to their senses. Omnimon gave his power to Imperialdramon, who transformed to his Paladin Mode and destroyed Armageddemon.
Twenty-five years into the future, Matt and Gabumon become an astronaut team, and perform the first manned (and monned!) landing on Mars. Matt and Sora are married, with two children, a boy and a girl, who have a Tsunomon and a Yokomon for partners. Note that while it is never actually stated in dialogue that Matt and Sora are married, its obvious from their children the child shown as Matts son has Soras hair colour, while the child shown as Soras daughter has Matts hair colour. Despite theorising from fans, it is confirmed that they are not divorced.

The Mega level is the final level of Digivolution, above Ultimate. It appears that a Digimon reaching the Mega level through natural Digivolution is extremely rare. It normally takes a special influx of energy, or other, unnatural circumstances.
The first Mega Digimon was VenomMyotismon, who attained the level by having his body discorporated and then recreated with excess energy. WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon were the next two, created when Agumon and Gabumon received energy boosts from Angemon and Angewomons arrows of Hope and Light, in accordance with an ancient prophecy unearthed by Gennai.
Leomon gained the ability to Digivolve from his Champion form directly into his Mega level of SaberLeomon after repeated exposure to energy from the kids Digivices. Etemon managed to become MetalEtemon after his digital information was reconfigured in digital limbo. The four Dark Masters apparently were born as Mega level Digimon, and did not need to Digivolve.
The only Digimon who actually went from Ultimate to Mega without some sort of assist was Infermon, who Digivolved into his Mega form of Diaboromon while battling WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon on the Internet. To combat him, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon combined into a new, more powerful Mega-level Digimon, Omnimon. Four years later, Diaboromon rebirth himself in the form of millions of Kuramon, who merged together to form a new Mega Digimon, Armageddemon.
Angemon and Angewomon reached their own Mega levels while battling Kerpymon. This adventure was out of continuity, and does not impact on the ongoing series. No explanation was given for their ability to Digivolve in the US movie, but in the Japanese version, they simply instructed T.K. and Kari to use their crests, and they were able to go to their Mega forms.
BlackWarGreymon was also born at the Mega level, but he was not truly a real Digimon. The four Harmonious Ones were also born at the Mega level, if a term like born can even really apply to beings of their kind.
Paildramon attained his Mega form of Imperialdramon thanks to an influx of energy from Azulongmons Digi-Core. Imperialdramon was later able to gain even more power and Mode Change to his Fighter Mode when the original eight Digimon gave up the power that Azulongmon had given them to energise him.
Daemon is a mystery. Was he born a Mega? Did he Digivolve? Nobody knows.
MaloMyotismon is also a Mega level Digimon, who reached his form thanks to a massive intake of dark energy from the Dark Spores.
Despite what people may tell you, this is no level above Mega. All the Digimon who appear that they may have gone beyond the Mega level (like Omnimon, Imperialdramon Fighter/Paladin Mode and MaloMyotismon), have simply gotten stronger, yet remained Megas.
The first Mega level Digimon to appear are VenomMyotismon, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon, in Prophecy.
The process by which Paildramon becomes Imperialdramon. It is not known if Mega-Digivolve is the normal name for an Ultimate-to-Mega Digivolution, or if it is a special case, caused by the influx of energy from Azulongmons Digi-Core.
Mega-Digivolving first occurs in Dramon Power. Previously, in Digimon: The Movie, Angewomon had Digivolved to Magnadramon, which is an Ultimate-to-Mega Digivolve, but she did not say Mega-Digivolve.

The first Megadramon the kids encountered was a minion of Machinedramon, the Dark Master of the digital city. When Machinedramon discovered that the DigiDestined kids had entered his city and accessed his computer network, he sent his armies to destroy them. Among the forces were Megadramon, and his companion, Gigadramon. Megadramon and Gigadramon attacked Tai, Izzy and their Digimon in a hospital, but when they escaped, Machinedramon initiated Plan Elimin8, and had Megadramon and Gigadramon use their Dark Side Attacks to level the city in hopes of destroying the DigiDestined. Angemon's Hand of Fate attack saw the two dragon Digimon off.
Four years later, when Digimon were appearing all over Earth, a Megadramon appeared in Odaiba along with several other wild Digimon. It was defeated by Paildramon and sent back to the DigiWorld with the other Digimon.

MegaKabuterimon Digivolves from Kabuterimon, the Champion level Digimon partner of Izzy of the DigiDestined. When he uses his Horn Buster attack, a beam of energy blasts outwards from the trident-like horn on his forehead. He has jets mounted on his back that endow him with the power of flight, and his shell-armour is extremely tough.
After Tai disappeared following the final battle with Etemon, Izzy and Tentomon wandered the DigiWorld looking for Gennai. After some months of searching, they had still not found him, but fell afoul of Vademon, who, working with DemiDevimon, captured Izzy and stole his curiosity. Izzy was reduced to a zombie like state, and Tentomon de-Digivolved all the way back to his Baby stage of Pabumon. Pabumon, fortunately, was able to snap Izzy out of his trance, and reclaimed his Tag and Crest, which Vademon had stolen. Izzy reclaimed his curiosity, and Pabumon Digivolved back to Tentomon, then to Kabuterimon to fight Vademon. Then, Izzy's Crest glowed for the first time, and Kabuterimon Digivolved to MegaKabuterimon to defeat Vademon.
MegaKabuterimon appeared again to help the kids and other Digimon infiltrate Myotismon's castle, so they could pass through the portal to Earth, and stop Myotismon from locating the Eighth Child, the predestined eighth member of the DigiDestined. Some time later, when the kids were back on Earth, and after the Eighth Child was revealed to be Kari, Tai's little sister, MegaKabuterimon appeared to battle Myotismon atop the Odaiba TV station, along with the other kids' Ultimate level Digimon. During the battle, Kari's Digimon, Gatomon, Digivolved to Angewomon, and destroyed Myotismon.
When the kids returned to the DigiWorld to battle the Dark Masters after defeating Myotismon's Digivolved form of VenomMyotismon, MegaKabuterimon appeared again for the first battle, but, as with the other Digimon, was quickly regressed to his In-Training form of Motimon by Puppetmon's Puppet Pummel attack. MegaKabuterimon didn't appear again until the kids were in final battle with Puppetmon, when he and Garudamon appeared to hold off Puppetmon's living mansion. At this time, Tentomon gained a little more control over his Digivolutions, and only regressed to Rookie stage after becoming Ultimate.
While on their way to battle Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters, Tai, Izzy, Kari, T.K. and Sora ran into his bodyguard, LadyDevimon. As Tai sent T.K. and Sora to locate the missing Matt, Joe and Mimi, Angewomon took LadyDevimon on. MegaKabuterimon appeared to help her out, and LadyDevimon was destroyed.
After the whole team was reunited, Piedmon called out his Vilemon horde, and MegaKabuterimon appeared again to battle, atomising several with his Horn Buster attack. After Piedmon was defeated, the kids were thrust into battle with Apocalymon, the DigiWorld's ultimate evil. MegaKabuterimon and the other Ultimates battled him, but were turned back to Rookie stages by his Reverse Digivolve attack. He then destroyed the kids' Crests, and deleted their digital bodies. As the kids and their Digimon floated in digital limbo, they realised that the power to Digivolve had not been in the Crests - it had been inside them all along. They reconstituted their digital bodies, and their Digimon Digivolved back to Ultimate, and, as MegaKabuterimon and the others held of Apocalymon's attacks, the kids Digivices turned the power of Apocalymon's Total Annihilation attack back on him, destroying him utterly, finally freeing the DigiWorld from the influence of evil.
In May 2000, Tentomon lost the ability to Digivolve to Ultimate when Izzy and the other kids gave up the powers of their Crests to seal the DigiWorld off from evil.
Four years later, Tentomon and the other Digimon had this power restored to them thanks to an energy boost from one of Azulongmons Digi-Cores. Tentomon headed for China with Izzy, Kari and Gatomon to help round up the wild Digimon that had appeared there. As MegaKabuterimon, he and Angewomon had surprisingly little to do, as Jackie, Gennais Chinese counterpart, helped Kari and Izzy communicated with the Poi Brothers. They then airlifted them to the India/China border, there the eldest Poy Brothers Octomon helped convince the Chinese army to let the gathered Digimon cross the border.
When everyone was back in Odaiba, MegaKabuterimon appeared again to help battle the evil Daemon Corps. Unfortunately, he was low on energy as a result of having been in the real world for so long, and reverted back into Tentomon. Tentomon and the other seven original Digimon then gave up their power to Digivolve to Ultimate once again, to energise Imperialdramon, enabling him to Mode Change into his Fighter Mode to destroy SkullSatamon.
MegaKabuterimon did not appear again after this.

The first MegaSeadramon seen was a minion of Myotismon. When Myotismon had invaded Odaiba in his search for the Eighth Child, he shrouded the city with a mystical fog bank, and stationed MegaSeadramon to guard the perimeter. When Joe and T.K. arrived on Ikkakumon's back, attempting to get into the city, MegaSeadramon attacked. When T.K. was in peril, Joe realised it was up to him to save him, and his Crest began to glow for the first time. Ikkakumon Digivolved to Zudomon and defeated MegaSeadramon.
Four years later, a MegaSeadramon under the influence of one of the Digimon Emperors Dark Spirals trapped the new DigiDestined in an offshore oil platform. Cody was able to escape in a submersible, and called on Joe for help. As Ikkakumon held MegaSeadramon off, Joe and Whamon freed the kids. Cody then picked up and activated the Digi-Egg of Reliability, and Armadillomon became Submarimon. Submarimon and Ikkakumon then worked together to destroy the Dark Spiral controlling MegaSeadramon.
Ikkakumon identified this MegaSeadramon as his old foe. This implies that it is the same one he fought four years before after all, it was never shown to delete, it simply sank beneath the waves.
Some time later, the DigiDestined called on Ikkakumon to help them protect the sixth Destiny Stone from BlackWarGreymon. Ikkakumon called in reinforcements in the form of a shoal of Dolphmon, and a MegaSeadramon. Despite their efforts, however, BlackWarGreymon parted the waters, washing them away, and destroyed the stone.
Its probably safe to assume that this MegaSeadramon is the same one as was freed from the Emperors control. But as its helping out, it may not be the one who served under Myotismon after all. Then again, his disposition might just have improved over four years.

It would appear that Mekanorimon are not actually sentient beings, but rather, are mindless mechanical Digimon, who serve whoever happens to have control of them.
The kids first encountered Mekanorimon when they were being shown images from the past by an ancient mysterious entity somehow linked to the DigiWorld. They saw how Piedmon led a small army of Mekanorimon and Gardromon in attacking the base of the mysterious group who created the Digivices, Tags and Crests. It was then that Gennai was able to steal a Mekanorimon, by ousting it's Bakemon pilot.
Mekanorimon first appeared in real time when the kids were in Machinedramon's city. When Izzy logged on to the city's network, it tipped Machinedramon off to their location, and he dispatched his troops to destroy them. A contingent of Mekanorimon and Tankmon, along with Megadramon and Gigadramon, attacked the kids in a hospital, but they got away. Izzy then used a computer trick to mask their location, keeping them safe. We can assume here that if Mekanorimon are not sentient, then they were acting under a pre-programmed set of instructions, or were being remote-controlled by Machinedramon and his Hagurumon.
Gennai retained the Mekanorimon he had stolen years before, and used it for transport towards the end of the kids' adventures, when he travelled to the Wall of Fire at Centarumon's behest, and to meet up with the kids after they beat Apocalymon.
Four years later, the Digimon Emperor was shown to have multiple Mekanorimon under his control. No Dark Rings or Dark Spirals were visible on them, once again indicating that they are not capable of independent thought. A squad of them were dispatched by the Emperor to fly into the Dark Whirlpool, but they simply vanished without trace. Undaunted, the Emperor piloted another Mekanorimon personally, down into the whirlpool, where he came face to face with Devimon. Devimon gave him a warning to beware the darkness, but the Emperor merely laughed, and used the Mekanorimon to harvest some of Devimons data, for later use in Kimeramon.

Meramon is a flaming Digimon, who lives atop Mihirashi Mountain on File Island. He was described by the Yokomon who lived in the village at the foot of the mountain as fierce - but when he was infected by a Black Gear, he could have been described as timid, compared to what he became! He came running down the mountain, towards the Yokomon village, where the DigiDestined kids were staying. He beat the kids' Rookie Digimon around, but then, Biyomon Digivolved to Birdramon for the first time, and forced the Black Gear out of his body with her Meteor Wing attack. Later, Meramon showed up to help the kids build a raft to take them to the continent of Server.
When Tai was temporarily returned to the real world, he could see a Meramon on a news report, as one of the Digimon that was flickering in and out of phase with Earth and causing the abnormal weather patterens that were plaguing the globe (in this case, a drought).
Much later, when the Dark Masters took control of the DigiWorld, Meramon encountered Mimi and Joe, who had left the DigiDestined team, because they no longer wanted to fight. He agreed to come with them and help them battle the Dark Masters. He aided the DigiDestined in battle with Piedmon and his Vilemon horde, and departed with their other allies afterward.
Four years later, several Meramon were seen under the control of the Digimon Emperor. As the Emperor set about capturing Greymon, he kept the new DigiDestined out of his way by distracting them with the Meramon. When he tried to make Greymon Digivolve to MetalGreymon, he instead became SkullGreymon. The Emperor was unable to control SkullGreymon, who sent the Meramon fleeing, and then destroyed the Control Spire in the area.
Some time later, when Digimon were appearing
all over the world, Mina, an Indian DigiDestined, was
shown to have a Meramon for a partner. She and Meramon were
attempting to lead wild Digimon into China, so they could be sent
back to the DigiWorld, but could not cross the border because of
the Chinese military. Kari, Izzy and one of the Poi
Brothers were able to organise a way to get them across, and
they were all sent back to the DigiWorld. Minas Meramon
appeared again when MaloMyotismon was attempting to infect
both worlds with darkness.
The Meramon that became allies with the DigiDestined first appears in "Biyomon Gets Firepower." His voice is supplied by Peter Spellos. Minas Meramon first appears in Digimon World Tour, Pt. 1. His voice is also supplied by Peter Spellos.

MetalEtemon is the Digivolved form of Etemon, the evil simian-like Digimon who controlled the deserts on the continent of Server. After Etemon was blasted through a warp by MetalGreymon's Giga Blaster attack, his digital information was scattered across digital limbo, where he reconfigured himself, splicing his data in with that of his Dark Network, with which he had bonded before his destruction. The splicing process eventually Digivolved him to the Mega level, and he returned to the DigiWorld, plummeting from the sky among the remains of the Network like a meteor, and emerging from the wreckage as MetalEtemon. As MetalEtemon, his armoured skin is constructed from Chrome DigiZoid.
Meanwhile, Joe and Mimi of the DigiDestined, who had left the group because they no longer wished to fight, had nursed Ogremon, who had been injured by the explosive impact of the Network, back to health. They were then set upon by Puppetmon, but MetalEtemon arrived to break up the battle. The enraged Puppetmon lashed out and MetalEtemon, and they began fighting, allowing Mimi, Joe and Ogremon to escape with the help of SaberLeomon. When Puppetmon dubbed MetalEtemon "no fun" and headed back to his mansion, MetalEtemon set off looking for Mimi and Joe again. He soon found them, hiding out at Digitamamon's diner, and battle ensued once more. During the fight, MetalEtemon called down a blast of dark energy upon Mimi, but SaberLeomon leapt in front of it, taking it's brunt himself to save her. Zudomon then hurled his hammer - also made from Chrome DigiZoid - at MetalEtemon, shattering his armour. The weakened SaberLeomon then simply plunged his claw straight through MetalEtemon's body, destroying him. MetalEtemon dissolved to digi-dust, promising that the kids would "pay big time."
MetalEtemon first appears in "Etemon's Comeback Tour." He dies in "Ogremon's Honor." His voice is supplied by Richard Epcar.

MetalGarurumon is the Mega stage of Gabumon, the Digimon partner of Matt of the DigiDestined. He is capable of flight, and is out-fitted with missile launchers in his legs. Just about every orifice on MetalGarurumon's body is a weapon, from his mouth, to his eyes, to his back, to his snout - when he uses his Ice Wolf Bite attack, he fires them all at once. He can project a beam of freezing energy from his mouth - his Metal Wolf Claw attack - and from his snout - his Metal Wolf Snout technique. He can fire his Giga Missile from his stomach.
When Myotismon regenerated himself as VenomMyotismon, none of the DigiDestined's Digimon were powerful enough to stop him. In accordance with an ancient prophecy unearthed by Gennai, Matt and Tai allowed themselves to be struck with arrows of Hope and Light from Angemon and Angewomon, which gave Gabumon and Agumon the power to Warp-Digivolve into their Mega forms of MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon. With help from the power of the kids' Crests, they destroyed VenomMyotismon.
When the kids returned to the DigiWorld to battle the Dark Masters, MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon appeared to battle Piedmon for the first time. After that initial confrontation, Matt began to grow steadily further from his team-mates, seeing himself as useless. His short temper and rudeness to his friends stopped his Crest from glowing, preventing Gabumon from Digivolving. When Matt was duped by Cherrymon into fighting Tai, Gabumon promised to stand by him no matter what, causing the Crest's glow to return, and allowing him to become MetalGarurumon again. MetalGarurumon then challenged WarGreymon to battle, to prove his loyalty to Matt. The two Megas fought briefly, but the battle was interrupted by a mysterious entity from the DigiWorld's past.
Matt left the team thereafter, but he and MetalGarurumon returned very briefly to destroy Puppetmon. Matt went his own way then, until Joe found him. They were then found by Sora and T.K., and brought to the site of Tai's battle with Piedmon, where Gabumon Warp-Digivolved again, and MetalGarurumon joined WarGreymon in battle against Piedmon. However, they were quickly turned into key chains by the villain's magic, but restored by MagnaAngemon's MagnaAntidote technique. Then, during the battle with Piedmon's Vilemon horde, MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon knocked him through MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny, finishing him off. MetalGarurumon then participated in the final two battle with Apocalymon, and helped the save the DigiWorld.
In March 2000, when Diaboromon menaced the Internet, MetalGarurumon again joined with WarGreymon in battling the enemy. However, Diaboromon proved to powerful for them - but when the energy from thousands of e-mails sent by children watching the battle on their computers re-energised them, they actually fused into one, new, more powerful Digimon - Omnimon! With thirty seconds to go, Izzy rerouted the kids e-mails, using them to slow Diaboromon down, and then, Omnimon impaled him through the head, destroying him and terminating the nuclear launch he and planned.
In May 2000, Gabumon lost his ability to Digivolve to either Ultimate or Mega, when Matt and the other DigiDestined gave up the powers of their Crests to seal the DigiWorld off from evil. He temporarily regained it four years later, and Digivolved to WereGarurumon using it, but had to give it up again, along with the other seven original Digimon, to power up Imperialdramon. Agumon gained more power from Azulongmon, enabling him to become WarGreymon again, but Gabumon did not, leaving him unable to become MetalGarurumon.
It is apparent that the Digimon's power to restore to Ultimate and beyond was eventually restored, as three months later, Gabumon was able to merge with Agumon into Omnimon to battle Diaboromon again. He did not become MetalGarurumon directly, but it seems likely that he would now be able to.
MetalGarurumon first appears in "Prophecy." His voice is supplied by Kirk Thornton.
