Nanimon was recruited by DemiDevimon to train the other Digimon that DemiDevimon had found to be part of Myotismon's army. Using the aliases of PunkAgumon and ReggaePalmon, Agumon and Palmon were able to infiltrate the castle and joined the group of Digimon being trained so they could take out Nanimon and make it safe for the DigiDestined kids to come in. Before long, all of the Digimon were exhausted, and Nanimon refused to feed them, too. Then, Sukamon, who was among those Digimon, hit upon an idea - Nanimon is an avid drinker of soda, but the bubbles go straight to his head and leave him disoriented. One of the Numemon in the group snuck away and found a large store of drinks, and pretty soon, Nanimon was flat on his back (Note - It's painfully obvious that in the original Japanese episode, Nanimon was given alcohol to drink, and became drunk. Censoring in America demanded the change). The kids were then able to get into the castle, and raced to try and stop Myotismon. Nanimon was quick to recover, and assembled the Digimon he had been training to try and stop the kids. Both the Digimon and Nanimon were scared off when the kids' Digimon digivolved to Champion stage, but Myotismon and the members of his army recruited by Gatomon still made it through the portal.
Nanimon's first and only appearance was in "The Gateway To Home." His voice is supplied by Dave Mallow.
Name: From the Japanese word "nani," meaning "who/what is it?"
Group: Animal - Level: Armour Type: Vaccine Attack Techniques: Rosetta Stone, Queen Paw, Cats Eye Beam, Golden Noose
Nefertimon is the Armour Digivolved form of Gatomon, the Digimon partner of Kari of the DigiDestined. Gatomon Armour Digivolves with the Digi-Egg of Light to become Nefertimon. When she uses her Rosetta Stone attack, she summons massive stone slabs and fires them at her opponent with deadly force. Explosive projectiles launch from her leg armour when she attacks with her Queen Paw technique, and energy beams fire from her headdress when she uses her Cats Eye Beam power. When she and Pegasusmon team up, they can create between them a lariat of golden energy, which they use to tie up their enemies.
After Gatomon lost her Tail Ring, her strength was greatly reduced, until she was no more powerful than a Rookie. While Flamedramon, Digmon and Halsemon battled a number of Tyrannomon under the Digimon Emperors command, Kari, Gatomon, T.K. and Patamon fled the scene, and took cover in a cave, where they found the Digi-Eggs of Light and Hope. Gatomon and Patamon became Nefertimon and Pegasusmon, and took down the Tyrannomon.
Nefertimon helped destroy the Control Spire in the frozen north, but shortly after that, she and Kari was left stranded alone in the city of Gardromon, after the Digi-Port TV was destroyed. Kari and Gatomon hid out, as Gatomon saved up her energy. When Davis and T.K. showed up to rescue them, Gatomon had become Nefertimon again to flee from more Gardromon, but was shot down and turned back to Gatomon. Later, Nefertimon was part of the battle with Deltamon and the Bakemon under the Emperors control, and after that, took part in the fight against the Emperors Meramon. She and the other Armour Digimon were defeated by SkullGreymon, who was fighting against the Emperors control and destroyed the Control Spire in the area. Nefertimon was also part of the battles against the viral MetalGreymon when the Emperor succeeded in gaining control of him.
When the kids met Michael at Digitamamons diner, and were attacked by Gorillamon, Nefertimon, Pegasusmon, Kari and T.K. flew off to look for Digitamamon himself, who had disappeared during the battle. He reappeared with a Dark Spiral controlling him, and Nefertimon and Pegasusmon had to bind him with their Golden Noose to allow Shurimon to destroy it. Nefertimon and Pegasusmon later tricked ShogunGekomon into destroying a Control Spire when he fell under a Dark Spirals influence.
When the location of the Digimon Emperors base was discovered, the kids stayed in the DigiWorld until they could destroy it. Nefertimon, along with Halsemon, was the first to battle Kimeramon, the Emperors genetically engineered creation but he easily defeated her. T.K. defeated the Emperor in a fistfight, stopping the Emperor from giving Kimeramon any more commands, and Pegasusmon took the opportunity to free Nefertimon and Halsemon from the creatures grip. When the kids penetrated the Emperors base shortly thereafter, Nefertimon and all the other Armours defeated two squads of Bakemon, but where then reverted when Kimeramon attacked. When Davis found the Digi-Egg of Miracles, Veemon became Magnamon, and his light regenerated the Gatomon and the others, enabling them to Armour Digivolve. Nefertimon and the others fled the damaged base, as Magnamon and Kimeramons battle sent it crashing into the desert.
Nefertimon helped to rebuild the Punimon village the day before Ankylomon first appeared, and then took part in the battle with the unliving Golemon created by Arukenimon. She and the other Armour Digimon were beaten by Golemon, but Stingmon and Aquilamon destroyed him.
Nefertimon next appeared during the battle with the unliving Minotarumon. She and Pegasusmon bound him with their Golden Noose, enabling Raidramon to destroy him. Soon after, Nefertimon appeared again to battle Arukenimons Okuwamon, but she and the other Digimon were summarily defeated.
When Arukenimon lured the kids to the Giga House, Kari, T.K., Yolei and their Digimon waited outside while Davis, Ken and Cody went in. However, each group was attacked by insectoid Digimon under Arukenimons control. Nefertimon, along with Pegasusmon and Aquilamon, fled from a swarm of Flymon, and were attacked by a group of Snimon. While Nefertimon and Pegasusmon held the Snimon off, Yolei and Kari used the houses computer to cancel out of the effects of Arukenimons flute, freeing the Digimon from her control. Nefertimon and all the other Digimon then helped out in the battle with Arukenimon herself, weakening her, until she was defeated by Paildramon. Her partner, Mummymon, leapt to her rescue, and bound Nefertimon, Pegasusmon, Shurimon and Digmon with his Snake Bandage attack, De-Digivolving them, and giving the villains the time they needed to escape. Nefertimon was then seen destroying more Control Spires with the other Digimon, and she and Pegasusmon were then the first to fall before the newly created BlackWarGreymon.
When the battles to save the Destiny Stones began, Nefertimon was present for the battle with Knightmon, though she quickly De-Digivolved to Gatomon, to try and DNA Digivolve with Aquilamon into Silphymon, but she was restrained by Arukenimon. Nefertimon was then seen carrying Kari to the sites of the second and third Destiny Stones, but they arrived to late BlackWarGreymon had already destroyed them. When the fourth stone was located, Nefertimon carried Kari to its location, and then reverted to Gatomon to merge into Silphymon with Aquilamon, and battle BlackWarGreymon.
Nefertimon next appeared at Christmas, when a Control Spire appeared in the real world, along with several wild Digimon. She and the other Armour Digimon, along with the other six original DigiDestineds Digimon, managed to defeat the Champions among the wild Digimon, then she reverted to Gatomon and merged with Aquilamon to help Paildramon and Shakkoumon take down the Ultimates.
Nefertimon didnt appear again for a while after this. She next showed up on Mount Fuji, while BlackWarGreymon was engaged in battle with WarGreymon. BlackWarGreymon had come to Earth to kill Oikawa, the human who created Arukenimon and Mummymon, but WarGreymon was trying to stop him. While the battle raged, Oikawa, Arukenimon and Mummymon attempted to make themselves scarce, but were pursued by Nefertimon, who followed the station wagon they were driving away in. Mummymon tried to take her down with his Snake Bandage, but couldnt manage it. Nefertimon, Pegasusmon and Aquilamon chased after the villains as they sought cover in an outdoor market, but couldnt attack them for fear of hurting the humans in the area. Mummymon had no such compunctions, and blasted all three of them, causing them to De-Digivolve.
When the kids pursued Oikawa through a portal that he believed led to the DigiWorld, they found themselves in a bizarre dimension that made dreams come true. There, the truth came out Oikawa was actually possessed by the spirit of Myotismon. Myotismon used the power of the Dark Spores to become MaloMyotismon, and then used the dimension to subject the kids to illusions of their greatest desires. However, they managed to win through, and then used the power of the dimension to their own ends, making all their Digimon Digivolve to their different forms at once. The Digi-Egg of Light transformed into Nefertimon, and she, Angewomon and Silphymon all joined with all the other Digimon in battling MaloMyotismon, but when the villain fled into the DigiWorld, only the real incarnation of Gatomon could follow, so Silphymon travelled through the portal, while the Nefertimon avatar faded away.
Nefertimon first appears in A New Digitude. Her voice is supplied by Edie Mirman. At first, Nefertimons voice is just like Angewomons, but then, in The Emperors New Home, it undergoes a change, becoming higher-pitched and almost metallic-sounding. Note that this voice is still being supplied by Edie Mirman. She maintains this voice for the rest of the series.
Name: From Nefertiti, an ancient Egyptian queen (in relation to Nefertimons Sphinx-like appearance).

Ninjamon was among those living in ShogunGekomons village who fell under the control of the Digimon Emperor. While the DigiDestined and their Digimon fought with Mushroomon and Floramon, Hawkmon came under attack from Ninjamon. He Armour Digivolved to Shurimon, and engaged Ninjamon in a rooftop battle, and then had to pull out with the others when a Gekomon appeared and led the DigiDestined to safety underground. However, Ninjamon was able to follow them, and attached a Dark Spiral to ShogunGekomon himself. While ShogunGekomon rampaged, destroying a large amount of the village, Ninjamon issued a challenge to Shurimon, and they duelled again. Meanwhile, the other kids tried to deal with ShogunGekomon, and managed to destroy the Control Spire in the area. Ninjamon was freed, but insisted on finishing his duel with Shurimon. Shurimon shattered his sword with his Double Star attack, and rather than face utter defeat, Ninjamon fled, claiming that theyd meet again. They didnt, of course.
Ninjamon appears in Big Trouble in Little Edo. His voice is supplied by Tom Fahn.
Name: From ninja, martial arts warriors from Japanese history.
"NO QUESTIONS, PLEASE"
Digimon Adventure episode #24
English version written by Rebecca Olkowski and Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
Izzy is imprisoned in Vademon's dimension, and has his curiosity stolen, thanks to the machinations of DemiDevimon. After De-Digivolving to Pabumon and freeing Izzy from his zombie-like state, Tentomon Digivolves to his Ultimate level of MegaKabuterimon for the first time to take out Vademon.
Noriko was one of the children implanted with a Dark Spore. Under orders from Oikawa, Arukenimon and Mummymon sought out children with problems some were lonely, like the boy Mummymon was first seen meeting, but Norikos problem was apparently a delicate immune system. When she first appeared, the girl constantly had to wear a smog mask, and was prone to coughing fits. Arukenimon lured her to her, and Noriko felt that she understood her. Noriko and the other children the duo rounded up were kept in a truck, where they met Oikawa, who explained to them about the Dark Spores, and how they could be like the famous Ken Ichijouji. Arukenimon convinced Ken to come with her, and he was taken away in the truck, where he met the kids, and Oikawa. Oikawa explained that Noriko and the other children wanted to have this done to them, and Kens pleas would not change their minds. Oikawa duplicated Kens Dark Spore, and implanted copies in all the children. After the battle with Daemon at Highton View Terrace, Oikawa fled, and all the children were taken back to their parents by the police. However, Oikawa had told the children to remember Highton View Terrace, as he would call them back there some day.
The DigiDestined kept watch over the children who had been implanted Cody and T.K. watched Noriko, and were shocked to see the normally pleasant girl kick a cat that had simply rubbed her leg. The next day, Noriko clashed with her mother, as the Dark Spore continued to make her feel apathetic towards other human beings, as she considered them below her. Yolei and Hawkmon watched her home, and then, when she left, Ken went after her. He tried to make her understand what the Dark Spore would do to her, but she wasnt interested. As Davis arrived on the scene, Noriko suddenly began screaming and the Dark Spore bloomed into a flower, radiating dark energy. Oikawa showed up, and absorbed the power from the flower, draining Norikos energy to the point where she fell unconscious.
Shortly thereafter, when Oikawa took the other Spore kids to what he thought was the DigiWorld, and Myotismons spirit emerged from within him and became MaloMyotismon, Noriko and her parents were brought to the summer camp along with the other DigiDestined and their families. The gateway to the DigiWorld there opened, and the DigiDestined traversed it, taking Noriko with them (however, this should not actually have been POSSIBLE, as Noriko did not have a Digivice, meaning she shouldnt have been able to go through the gate. But the writing at this time of the series was becoming very loose, so we just have to overlook it...). Once in the DigiWorld, Noriko and all the other Spore children were encouraged to remember what their dreams used to be, before they lost them Noriko remembered how she had always wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. The power of their dreams overrode the energies of the Dark Spores, weakening MaloMyotismon. The kids stepped through the portal from the dream dimension into the DigiWorld, and D-3s and partner Digimon appeared for them a Punimon appeared for Noriko. Then, MaloMyotismons body discorporated, and everyone used their Digivices to power up Imperialdramon, allowing him to use his Giga Crusher attack to destroy Myotismons spirit, seemingly for good.
Noriko first appears in Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2. Her voice is supplied by Laura Summer.
Digimon Adventure episode 53
English version written by Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz
The kids are attacked by Apocalymon, and have their Crests and Tags destroyed and their digital bodies deleted, only to realise their power comes not from the Crests, but from inside themselves.
Episode Trivia - The title of this episode is apparently a reference to the 1979 Francis Ford Coppola film, "Apocalypse Now."
Track 10 on the Digimon: The Movie soundtrack, by Summercamp. While it does not play at any point during the movie, it seems to have been chosen for its relevance to Tai and Soras issues in the film. For the lyrics to this song, click HERE.

Numemon are sewer-dwelling Digimon, who resemble nothing so much as a pile of slime. Their primary means of assault is their 'Nume-Sludge' (which, in the original Japanese version, is faeces), which they hurl at their enemies. They are sensitive to sunlight, as it hurts their eyes, which have grown accustomed to the dark of the sewers.
After leaving Andromon's factory via the sewer system, the kids ran into a gang of Numemon underground. They fled, and made it to the surface, the sunlight forcing the Numemon back. The kids then came across a landscape of vending machines (a somewhat normal sight for the DigiWorld), and, as the sky clouded over, Mimi darted over to one and tried to get it to work. However, the machine fell apart - and a Numemon emerged from inside! With the clouds protecting him and the others who emerged at the same time, he asked Mimi if she'd like to go out on a date. Naturally, Mimi refused, and ran. She and Palmon then met Monzaemon, who brought them to Toy Town - but when they found out he was infected with a Black Gear, Palmon digivolved to Togemon for the first time. With a little help from the Numemon, she was able to destroy the gear.
Numemon next appeared when the kids were on the continent of Server. While walking the deserts of the continent, the kids came across a giant cruise ship, and Mimi charmed one of the Numemon crewmen into letting them come on board. They were then set on by the ship's owner, Kokatorimon, who had his Numemon search them out. Togemon took care of him, and the ship was destroyed.
While trying to stop Myotismon's plans to open a portal to Earth, the kids had Agumon and Palmon sneak into Myotismon's castle, using the aliases of PunkAgumon and ReggaePalmon. They were drafted into the small Digimon army that DemiDevimon was gathered for his master, which also consisted of some Numemon. When their 'drill sergeant,' Nanimon, mistreated them, Sukamon, who was also a part of the army, suggested that they use soda pop to get him inebriated (it was alcohol in the Japanese version, obviously - painfully obviously). One of the Numemon slithered it's way up a wall and into the kitchen, where it found enough of the drink to do the job, allowing everyone to escape, and the kids to get into the castle.
Numemon next appeared when the kids were battling the Dark Masters. Sora, T.K. and Kari had become separated from the others, and they and their Digimon came across an underground work-camp, run by WaruMonzaemon, which consisted entirely of Numemon. The Numemon were being made to turn cranks and run in wheels to power Machinedramon's city above. As Sora and T.K. drew WaruMonzaemon away, Kari freed all the Numemon, and they dubbed her their queen. They tried to help fight WaruMonzaemon, but couldn't stand up to him. Birdramon, Angemon and Angewomon saw him off, as Kari and the others tended to the wounded Numemon. Later, when the kids were back together, and fighting Machinedramon himself, with help from Andromon, the Numemon all swarmed over the robot Digimon's body. He laughed at their weakness, and atomised every single one of them with a solitary blast of his Giga Cannon attack.
After defeating Machinedramon, Kari and T.K. built a small marker for the Numemon, to remember their sacrifice. When the Dark Masters and Apocalymon were defeated, a hail of Digi-Eggs rained down on Primary Village - assuredly, among the reborn Digimon they contained were all the Numemon who had sacrificed themselves.
Four years later, a large number of Numemon were the first Digimon encountered by Davis, the first of the children who had been selected to be the new DigiDestined. On his first trip to the DigiWorld, Davis spotted a soda machine, but was more than surprised when a troop of Numemon emerged from it, knocking him to the ground and crawling past him.
Later, Davis got a bunch of Numemon and RedVegiemon to dress up in a costume, and pretend to be a giant Digimon, in order to scare Veemon into Digivolving. The plot failed when the costume tore, and all of them came tumbling out.
Several Numemon (or more specifically, the eye-stalks of several Numemon) were seen some time later, in a forest that BlackWarGreymon was passing through.
Numemon first appear in "Togemon in Toy Town."
Name: From numenume, a Japanese term meaning slippery.

Nyaromon is the In-Training stage of Salamon, the Digimon of Kari of the DigiDestined. When Gennai took the Digi-Eggs that would become the DigiDestined's Digimon to hide on File Island and keep safe from the clutches of the Dark Masters, he accidentally dropped one. When the egg hatched, the Baby that emerged became Nyaromon. When Kari failed to come to the DigiWorld with the rest of the kids (as she had been sick with the flu and couldn't go to summer camp), Nyaromon, having grown up alone, and now without a partner, began to wander the DigiWorld. She naturally grew into her Rookie form of Salamon, and was taken in by Myotismon. Under his wing, with brutal conditioning, she naturally grew into her Champion stage of Gatomon, and forgot all about her life beforehand - forgetting that she was destined to be the Eighth DigiDestined's Digimon. During Myotismon's attack on the real world during the search for the Eighth Child, Wizardmon was able to restore her memories and team her and Kari up.
Four years later, when the kids were being subjected to illusions of their greatest desires by MaloMyotismon, a Nyaromon appeared in Karis fantasy, where humans and Digimon were living peacefully together. The Nyaromons partner, a young boy, asked Kari if he could tell her when Nyaromon would Digivolve.
Nyaromon first appeared in a flashback in "The Eighth Child Revealed." Karis Nyaromon does not appear in real time, as Gatomon became a Champion naturally, and has more than enough energy to sustain her digivolved form without reverting to her In-Training stage.
Name: From the Japanese word, "nyaro," being the sound a cat makes.
Group: Micro - Level: Baby - Attack Technique: Bubble Blow
Nyokimon is the Baby stage of Biyomon, the Digimon partner of Sora of the DigiDestined. Soras Nyokimon never appeared in real time- she was only seen when the mysterious entity from the DigiWorld's past showed the kids images from history, along with all the other baby Digimon, as they were shown hatching from their Digi-Eggs.
Four years later, a Nyokimon was seen along with some other Baby Digimon and an Elecmon in a forest that BlackWarGreymon was passing through. Later, during the final battle with MaloMyotismon, a Nyokimon was among the Baby Digimon who appeared as partners for the children implanted with Dark Spores, and became partners with Hiroshi.
Soras Nyokimon appears only in "The Ultimate Clash." Other Nyokimon appear in Opposites Attract and A Million Points of Light.
Name: From the Japanese word, "nyokinyoki," meaning plants sprouting one after the other.
