SaberLeomonGroup: Ancient Animal - Level: Mega - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques: Twin Fang, Howling Crusher
During the years that passed in the DigiWorld when the DigiDestined children returned to Earth to stop the plans of Myotismon, their old ally, Leomon, made a discovery about himself - due to repeated exposure to the energies of the Digivices at the hands of the kids, to free him from Devimon's Black Gears, he had been endowed with the ability to Digivolve to the powerful SaberLeomon - a Mega level Digimon, meaning he was skipping out Ultimate somehow. He was obviously Warp-Digivolving, but it was never referred to by name.
When the DigiDestined returned to the DigiWorld, they were immediately thrust into conflict with the Dark Masters, who had conquered it. They managed to defeat MetalSeadramon, but during their battles with Puppetmon, dissention in their ranks began to split them up. Matt went off on his own, trying to find himself, while Mimi and Joe left the group together, no longer wishing to fight. They came across the wounded Ogremon and nursed him back to health, only to then be simultaneously attacked by Puppetmon and MetalEtemon. They were able to get away when the two villains started fighting each other, but MetalEtemon soon tracked them down again. This time, they were saved when SaberLeomon appeared, and carried them away on his back.
SaberLeomon brought them to Digitamamon's diner, where he De-Digivolved back into Leomon. He explained to them that his control over his Digivolutions was limited, as it was new to him, and difficult to keep control of. When MetalEtemon arrived at the diner, Leomon Digivolved back to SaberLeomon and battled him. His Howling Crusher and Twin Fang attacks did no damage to the villain's Chrome DigiZoid armour, and then, he called down a blast of dark energy from the sky, intending to kill Mimi. SaberLeomon leapt in front of the blast, fatally wounding himself, but when Zudomon managed to shatter MetalEtemon's armour with his hammer, the feline Digimon had enough strength left to plunge his claws through the crack in the armour and rip MetalEtemon to bits from inside. As MetalEtemon faded away into digi-dust, SaberLeomon reverted to Leomon, and succumbed to the severity of his injuries, dying also.
SaberLeomon appears in "Etemon's Comeback Tour" and "Ogremon's Honor." His voice is supplied by Paul St. Peter.
Name: From the words "saber" (American spelling used), in reference to his fangs, and the Latin word, "leo," meaning lion.

SalamonGroup: Mammal - Level: Rookie - Type: Vaccine - Attack Techniques Puppy Howling, Petty Punch
Little is known about Salamon, the Rookie form of Gatomon, the Digimon of Kari, the predestined eighth member of the DigiDestined. When Gennai took the Digi-Eggs that would become the DigiDestined 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 who grew up separated from the other chosen Digimon. Kari had been unable to go to summer camp with the other kids because she had the flu, and as such, had never arrived in the DigiWorld to meet Nyaromon. Nyaromon wandered the DigiWorld, eventually becoming Salamon. She was taken in by Myotismon, who, with brutal beatings and conditioning, turned her into his lieutenant, Gatomon. She had all but forgotten anything about what her life had been like as Salamon, but then, Wizardmon introduced her to Kari during Myotismon's assault on the real world, and her memories were restored. Gatomon Digivolved into Angewomon and destroyed Myotismon, but he was able to reconstitute himself as VenomMyotismon. After the final battle with VenomMyotismon, Angewomon reverted back into Salamon, who accompanied Kari and the other kids back to the DigiWorld to battle the Dark Masters, Digivolving back to Gatomon for the first battle. She did not appear again.
Four years later, after Gatomon and Aquilamon DNA Digivolved into Silphymon for the first time, when they De-Digivolved, they became Salamon and Pururumon. Salamon appeared again after the battle to protect the first Destiny Stone. After the battle for the fourth stone, Silphymon apparently only reverted into Gatomon and Hawkmon. Salamon showed up again after the battle for the fifth stone, and she and Kari ate dinner at Davis’s apartment, along with Yolei and Ken and their Digimon. Salamon appeared again after the battle with BlackWarGreymon to save the final stone, and once more after the fight at Christmas. After this, it would be Gatomon who appeared after Silphymon De-Digivolved, and as such, Salamon did not appear again.
Salamon first appears in a flashback in "The Eighth Child Revealed." She first appears in real time in "The Battle for Earth." Her voice is supplied by Edie Mirman.
Name: Salamon is named after the pet cat of Terri-Lei O’Malley, the producer of the US version of the show. A dub name could not be settled upon for Salamon, and so O’Malley made the decision to name her after her cat. However, she had not seen a picture of her at this point, and based the name on the fact that Gatomon and Nyaromon are both cat-oriented Digimon. When she finally did see a picture, and realised Salamon was more puppy-like, it was too late to change it. We don’t actually know the name of the cat, but it was probably Sally...

Digimon Adventure 02 episode #14

English version written by Rebecca Olkowski and Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz

While searching for a new Digi-Egg, the kids stop to eat at Digitamamon’s diner, but find they can’t pay the bill. Mimi shows up with Michael, a DigiDestined from America, who pays the bill, and tells them about how he became a DigiDestined. Then, Gorillamon, complete with Dark Spiral, attacks the diner. Togemon and Seadramon (the Digivolved form of Michael’s Betamon) see him off, but then the group is attacked again, this time by Digitamamon, who has fallen prey to a Dark Spiral as well. Mimi attempts to reason with him, but he knocks her to the ground, prompting Yolei to go into a rage that results in the appearance of the Digi-Egg of Sincerity. Using it, Hawkmon becomes Shurimon and frees Digitamamon.

Episode Trivia - The music playing during the party at the beginning of the episode is the Teenage Wolves song, “Turn Around.”


ScorpiomonGroup: Crustacean - Level: Ultimate - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Scorpion Storm, Tail Blade
Scorpiomon is a minion of MetalSeadramon, the Dark Master of the digital ocean. Shortly after the DigiDestined's first battle with the Dark Masters, they found themselves on a beach, and managed to escape an attack by Shellmon, to come across what appeared to be a snack bar. Rushing toward it, Mimi tripped and Joe hung back to help her, while the others ran on ahead - only to be attacked by Scorpiomon! He used his Scorpion Storm attack to knock them out, and then MetalSeadramon appeared to give Scorpiomon his reward - clams! Scorpiomon LOVES clams to the point of obsession. However, as soon as MetalSeadramon realised that two DigiDestined were missing, he ordered Scorpiomon to search for them, which he did, chasing Mimi and Joe across the beach. Fortunately for them, he was not the fittest of Digimon, and couldn't keep up - but when they started interfering with his clams, he attacked them again. Zudomon and Lillymon knocked him out, and dragged him back to the snack bar, where they rescued the other DigiDestined, and left Scorpiomon in their place. When MetalSeadramon found this out, he grabbed Scorpiomon, hoisted him high into the air, and let him fall. He disappeared in the dust cloud created by his impact - whether he died or not is unknown.
Four years later, when wild Digimon were appearing all over Earth, a Scorpiomon appeared in Australia, near the Great Barrier Reef. Joe and Ikkakumon were there, along with Cody and Submarimon, and Ikkakumon Digivolved into Zudomon to fight the Scorpiomon, but the ferocity of their battle threatened to destroy the reef. Also present was Derek, an Australian DigiDestined boy, and his partner Crabmon, who Digivolved into Coelamon to help Zudomon and Submarimon defeat the Scorpiomon and send it back to the DigiWorld.

A Scorpiomon first appears in "Sea-Sick and Tired." The voices for both Scorpiomon are supplied by Lex Lang.

Name: His original Japanese name is “Anomalocarimon,” named after a prehistoric kind of sea-scorpion.


After suffering from recurring nightmares, Kari found herself apparently hallucinating, seeing a vast dark ocean and strange creatures. Leaving school, she abruptly found herself drawn into another dimension, where this ocean lay – the enigmatic World of Darkness. After failing to find a path away from the dark, gloomy beach where she materialised, she came across a cave, inside which she encountered creatures who called themselves “Scubamon.” They looked exactly like Divermon, sans their scuba gear, and *should* have been called Divermon, but a dubbing error resulted in the Scubamon name. The “Scubamon” each had Dark Spirals on them, and said they had brought Kari to their world to help remove them. Kari set about the task, but they were then attacked by an Airdramon with a Dark Ring on it. Kari’s distress somehow opened a gateway to Earth, through which T.K., Gatomon and Patamon travelled. Patamon became Pegasusmon and destroyed the Control Spire in the ocean, but for whatever reason, this did not stop the Airdramon. A mysterious pink light appeared, giving Gatomon the energy she needed to Digivolve into Angewomon. Angewomon destroyed the Airdramon, and then used her powers to remove the Dark Spirals on the “Scubamon.” However, once the Spirals were off, the “Scubamon” began to change shape – they were not really Digimon at all, but were instead servants of Dragomon, who sought to make Kari their queen. Angewomon prevented them from taking Kari, and they calmly returned to the ocean.

There is a LOT of mystery surrounding the “Scubamon.” I choose to refer to them as “Scubamon,” even though the name is the result of an error, because it creates a distinction between the false forms that these non-Digimon creatures put on, and REAL Divermon. Some fans have dubbed them “Digital Deep Ones,” after the “Deep Ones,” servants of Dagon in H.P. Lovecraft’s tales of Cthulu (upon whom Dragomon is based).

It is largely accepted that the “Scubamon” were not actually under the influence of the Spirals at all, but merely used them to trick Kari into helping them – after all, the “Scubamon” were capable of independent thought and action, which the Dark Spirals are supposed to inhibit. The Japanese version wasn’t very clear on this either, but for the dub, the recap for this episode in “The Samurai of Sincerity” states that it was a trick. Whether or not the Control Spire and the Airdramon were part of their trick isn’t clear either.

In the original version, the “Scubamon” did not want Kari to lead them against their “undersea master” – rather; they wanted to procreate with her, to produce more of their kind. Reports are conflicting – one translated script says they wanted more of their kind to fight the Digimon Emperor, while another says that they wanted more to worship him. Even then, it seems peculiar that inhabitants of the pure evil World of Darkness think enough of a simple human like the Emperor to either fear OR worship him. But we’re never going to get the full story.

The “Scubamon” appear in “His Master’s Voice.”

Name: As noted above, these Digimon should have been called Divermon, rather than Scubamon. The fact that they have even been named Scubamon is curious, as they don’t actually have the scuba gear that normal Divermon do.


SeadramonGroup: Sea Animal - Level: Champion - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Ice Blast, Ice Winder
After escaping from two angry Monochromon not long after their arrival in the DigiWorld, the DigiDestined kids came across an abandoned trolley car on the shores of a lake, where they decided to spend the night. However, hot embers from the kids' camp fire happened to strike a large, red, leaf-like object imbedded in the earth near the car - and it turned out to be the tail of Seadramon, a sea-monster Digimon, who promptly began swimming out into the middle of the lake, unknowingly dragging the chunk of the shore with the trolley car on it. Matt had not been in the car at the time, and when he saw what had happened, realising T.K. was in trouble, he leapt into the water, and began to swim towards the island. Seadramon noticed him, and grabbed him with his coils. To save him, Gabumon Digivolved to Garurumon for the first time, and battled Seadramon, seeing him off with his Howling Blaster attack. When Tai was temporarily returned to the real world, he could see a Seadramon 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. After the defeat of Apocalymon, a Seadramon in phase with the real world was seen deleting.
Four years later, Mimi introduced the new DigiDestined kids to Michael, another DigiDestined boy from America, who she met when her family moved there. As they relaxed in Digitamamon’s restaurant, Michael, who was with his partner, Betamon, told the kids about how he became a DigiDestined after seeing Gorillamon in New York at the same time as Myotismon’s invasion of Tokyo. Just then, the diner was attacked by Gorillamon himself, under the thrall of one of the Digimon Emperor’s Dark Spirals. Davis and Veemon moved to attack him, but Michael stepped in, and instructed Betamon to Digivolve into his Champion form of Seadramon! Seadramon hauled Gorillamon underwater, and bested him by jamming his Energy Cannon with an Ice Blast. Gorillamon was flung from the water by the backlash, and then Togemon destroyed the Spiral, freeing him.

Later that year, at Christmas, when Digimon began to appear all over Earth, Betamon arrived in America, along with the partners of the other American DigiDestined – and several wild Digimon, who began to roam the continent. At the instructions of Gennai and his duplicate cohorts, the DigiDestined all over the world began to round up the wild Digimon and bring them to specific spots, where the Japanese DigiDestined would meet them and use their D-3s to open Digi-Ports to send them back. When Davis arrived in New York to team up with Mimi and Michael, a situation arose in Rockafeller Centre, as a Cherrymon attacked the Christmas tree there. Betamon Digivolved into Seadramon again, and he, along with Lillymon and ExVeemon headed off to fight the Cherrymon. They had some trouble to begin with, but were helped out by the other American DigiDestined and their Digimon. The Digimon were sent back to the DigiWorld – except for Betamon, but he did go back eventually, as he was there again for the final battle with MaloMyotismon.

The first Seadramon appears in "Garurumon." Michael’s Seadramon first appears in “The Samurai of Sincerity.” Michael’s Seadramon’s voice is supplied by Dan Lorge.
Name: From the words "sea" and "dragon," which "dra" is short for.

Digimon Adventure episode #41

English version written by R.D. Chamberlain and Sean Abley

The kids escape the clutches of the Dark Masters, thanks to Piximon's sacrifice, but then, after escaping from an attack by Shellmon, are suckered into a trap by Scorpiomon, one of MetalSeadramon's minions. Mimi and Joe manage to escape and defeat Scorpiomon, and the group then take to the sea in an attempt to escape MetalSeadramon's wrath.


SeraphimonGroup: Angel – Level: Mega – Type: Vaccine – Attack Techniques: Seven Heavens,

Seraphimon is the Mega form of Patamon, the Digimon partner of T.K. 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, Angemon and Angewomon drew upon all their energy, and Digivolved into their Mega forms of Seraphimon and Magnadramon. Seraphimon and Magnadramon used all their energy to summon the Golden Digi-Eggs, to empower the other Digimon, enabling them to defeat Kokomon. Seraphimon released the Digi-Egg of Miracles, and then he and Magnadramon were cut down by Kerpymon, and he reverted to Patamon. Davis then used the Digi-Egg of Miracles to Armour Digivolve Veemon into Magnamon, who, along with Rapidmon, defeated Kerpymon.

Seraphimon appears in “Digimon: The Movie.” His voice is supplied by Dave Mallow. The portion of the movie in which he 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 Patamon cannot Digivolve to Seraphimon in the anime

Name: From “seraphim,” the highest order of angel in Christian belief. Seraphimon’s name is spelled as “Seraphymon” in the movie’s credits – however, every single other piece of merchandise, right down to the subtitles on the DVD of the movie itself, spell it “Seraphimon,” so that is the spelling used here.



See Seraphimon


Server is the main continent of the DigiWorld. After the DigiDestined defeated Devimon on File Island, they were contacted by Gennai, who asked them to come to the continent to battle the evil forces there. With aid from Whamon, they made it, finding their Tags along the way.
We have only seen two distinct regions of Server - the desert and the forest. We also briefly saw the mountainous region, on the edge of the forest. The deserts were ruled by Etemon, and had his Dark Network running through them. The forests, meanwhile, were watched over by Myotismon, although he sent his henchman, DemiDevimon, to do his dirty work when he learned the kids were there. Places of note on Server are: Piximon's training ground, in the deserts, Gennai's home, at the bottom of a lake, a lake-side fairground, Digitamamon's diner, on an island in the centre of the aforementioned lake, the Gekomon and Otamamon's palace, on the shore, Vademon's base of operations, and a doorway into his pocket dimension, in the mountains, and Myotismon's castle, on the forest's edge. While never expressly stated, we can take for granted that Myotismon built his castle over the old headquarters of the mysterious group charged with the DigiWorld's protection, as the Key Card pillar and the dimensional portal were in a sub-section of his castle, and were later revealed to have been part of the group's base, before the Dark Masters killed them.
When the Dark Masters conquered the DigiWorld, Server, along with everything else, was reformatted into Spiral Mountain. When the kids defeated the Dark Masters and Apocalymon, Server and the DigiWorld were resorted to normalcy.
Server is first mentioned in "Departure for a New Continent." The kids arrive there in "The Dark Network of Etemon."


ShakkoumonGroup: Mutant – Level: Ultimate – Type: Vaccine – Attack Techniques: Kachina Bomb, Harmonious Spirit/Justice Beam
Shakkoumon is the DNA Digivolved form of Ankylomon and Angemon, the Champion level Digimon partners of Cody and T.K. of the DigiDestined. Shakkoumon’s Kachina Bombs – bladed discs – launch from a compartment in his stomach, through which he can also absorb the energy from the attacks of his opponents, which he discharges as steam via a vent in his head. He can fire twin beams of energy from his eyes (in “Kyoto Dragon,” this attack was called by it’s Japanese name, “Harmonious Spirit,” but in subsequent episodes in which it was used, it was called “Justice Beam”).
Shakkoumon was the last of the three DNA Digivolved Ultimate Digimon to appear. Cody had been struggling to understand T.K. and his feelings of hate and fear towards the powers of darkness, but a life-threatening encounter with BlackWarGreymon opened his eyes. When the final Destiny Stone was located, BlackWarGreymon, Arukenimon and Mummymon and the DigiDestined all converged in the area. As the battle began, Angemon and Ankylomon DNA Digivolved into Shakkoumon for the first time, who helped Paildramon and Silphymon to battle and hold off BlackWarGreymon, while the DigiDestined attempted to move the final Destiny Stone with their D-3s. This action released Azulongmon from his prison, and he dispatched BlackWarGreymon. Shakkoumon and the other Digimon De-Digivolved, and listened to Azulongmon’s tale.
Shakkoumon next appeared during the battle at Christmas. Arukenimon had brought a Control Spire to Earth, along with some wild Digimon, who disrupted a Teenage Wolves concert. The original DigiDestined’s Digimon were unable to Digivolve because of the Spire, but then the Armour Digimon arrived, and destroyed it. When the Champions among the wild Digimon were defeated and sent back to the DigiWorld, the newer kids’ Digimon DNA Digivolved to take down the Ultimates. Shakkoumon easily bested a Monzaemon, picking it up and hurling it through the Digi-Port.
The DigiDestined then had to travel all over the world, rounding up wild Digimon in various countries and sending them back to the DigiWorld. When this was complete, they all returned to Japan, but had no time to rest, as the Daemon Corps arrived in Tokyo, in search of Ken and the Dark Spore within him. Arukenimon spirited Ken away before Daemon could get his hands on him, and the DigiDestined pursued her truck with help from Jim Kido. Kari, Yolei and Silphymon went to deal with LadyDevimon, while T.K., Cody and Davis continued the pursuit- but when MarineDevimon appeared, Shakkoumon engaged him in battle. The battle took place near a hospital, and T.K., Cody and Jim helped evacuate the patients. As they were moved a disabled girl out of the building, one of MarineDevimon’s tentacles came crashing through the wall, and Cody cried out to Shakkoumon. Immediately, Shakkoumon used his Justice Beam attack, and destroyed MarineDevimon, much to Cody’s shock and dismay. Shakkoumon then joined in the fight against Daemon himself, sucker-punching him from behind. He used his energy-absorbing powers twice on Daemon’s Evil Inferno attack, and then leant his strength in the final push that sent Daemon through the portal into the World of Darkness.
When the kids were in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension, after they dispelled the illusions of their greatest desires that the villain had subjected them to, they used the dimension’s power to their own ends, allowing their Digimon to Digivolve into all their different forms at once. Shakkoumon, Armadillomon, Ankylomon, Digmon and Submarimon joined with the other Digimon in battling the villain, but when he fled into the DigiWorld, only the “real” incarnation of Armadillomon could cross over, so Shakkoumon passed through the portal while the other avatars faded away. Once in the DigiWorld, Shakkoumon, Silphymon and Imperialdramon were almost immediately defeated by MaloMyotismon, who had boosted his power to insane heights by absorbing the darkness from the DigiWorld. The villain then turned his attention to Earth, beginning to blanket it with a shroud of pure darkness, but the DigiDestined from all over the world united against him, using their Digivices to penetrate the darkness. The light from the Digivices brought the all their Digimon partners to the site of the battle, where they absorbed the energy from the light, and used it to re-energise Shakkoumon, Silphymon and Imperialdramon. Then, acting as beacons, the Digimon pulled their partners into the DigiWorld. The DigiDestined convinced the Dark Spore kids to talk about their hopes and dreams, and made them realise that they weren’t meaningless. This positive energy weakened MaloMyotismon, discorporating his body, and then everyone used their Digivices to power up Imperialdramon, who used his Giga Crusher attack to obliterate his spirit, apparently once and for all.
Shakkoumon first appears at the end of
“Stone Soup” – his appearance is the episode cliffhanger which leads straight into “Kyoto Dragon.” His voice is supplied by Dave Mallow and Robert Axelrod.
Name: From “Shakoukidoguu,” an ancient Japanese artefact, upon which Shakkoumon’s physical appearance is also based.

ShellmonGroup: Sea Animal - Level: Champion - Type: Data - Attack Techniques: Aqua Blaster, Slamming Attack
The kids first encountered a Shellmon very soon after their arrival in the DigiWorld. After escaping from Kuwagamon, they found themselves on a beach, where they came across a set of phone booths. They tried them all out, but they proved non-functional. As they discussed what to do about lunch, Shellmon appeared, burrowing his way up through the sand. He attacked the kids, blasting them with jets of water, stomping his foot down on top of Agumon, and crushing Tai in the grip of one of his tendrils. With Tai in peril, Agumon Digivolved to Greymon for the first time, and blasted Shellmon off across the horizon with his Nova Blast attack.
Shellmon appeared again much later, when the DigiWorld was under the control of the Dark Masters. The kids had managed to escaped the wrath of the four evil Digimon thanks to Piximon, and found themselves on the same beach as before. Hearing cries for help offshore, the kids used an outrigger (ever-so-conveniently lying on the beach nearby) to go out to help - only to discover that the crier was Shellmon, luring them in for an attack. Tentomon, Biyomon, Palmon and Gomamon saw him off, and he did not appear again after that.
Four year later, a Shellmon under the control of one of the Digimon Emperor’s Dark Rings was seen in the frozen north of the DigiWorld. Gomamon attempted to pacify him, but to no avail. Armadillomon became Digmon and leapt in to attack, protecting Cody from Shellmon’s Aqua Blaster, and then destroying the Dark Ring with his Gold Rush attack.
Later, a Shellmon was among the Digimon who appeared in Australia when wild Digimon were showing up all over Earth. Joe and Cody were also there, and their Digimon managed to scare of the Shellmon, which was with an Ebidramon and a Gesomon, with threats of turning them into seafood.
A Shellmon first appears in
"The Birth of Greymon." The Shellmon in season one never named his attacks, but the one under the control of the Emperor had his attack named “Aqua Blaster,” in contrast to the name Bandai gives the attack, “Hydro Blaster.”
Name: From the word "shell," in reference to the shell on his back.

ShogunGekomonGroup: Amphibian - Level: Champion - Type: Virus - Attack Techniques: Musical Fist, Frog Kick
ShogunGekomon is a large, rotund Digimon, and the ruler of the Gekomon and Otamamon. He was very proud of his voice, and entered a singing contest - but when he lost, he was so depressed that he fell into a deep sleep, which lasted three hundred years. The Gekomon and Otamamon who tended to his needs tried everything to wake him up, but it was said that only a voice as beautiful as his could accomplish the feat. When DemiDevimon told them about Mimi, they quickly tracked her down, and asked her to sing. They took her to the castle in which they and ShogunGekomon lived, but she began to make excuses so she didn't have to sing, and soon had the Digimon treating her like a princess. They weren't happy, but there was nothing they could do about it! When Tai and Joe arrived at the castle, they tried to trick Mimi into singing her song, but she was so angry when she found out that she threw them in the dungeon. With help from Sora, she came to her senses, and freed them. She then sang "I Wanna Sing A Song" to wake ShogunGekomon up - but when he opened his eyes, he flew into a rage, angry that they had woken him from such a nice nap! MetalGreymon battled him, and subdued him.
When the Dark Masters were in the process of conquering the DigiWorld, the castle was sunk into the sea, and ShogunGekomon was apparently killed. However, when the kids defeated Apocalymon, he would have been reborn as a Digi-Egg at Primary Village.
Four years later, the reborn ShogunGekomon was in charge of a village of Floramon and Mushroomon, but in the middle of the night, the Digimon Emperor arrived and set up a Control Spire there. The next day, the Floramon and Mushroomon were taken over by Dark Rings, and attacked the DigiDestined when they arrived. A Gekomon led them to safety underground, where ShogunGekomon explained the situation. He then promptly fell asleep... and while he slumbered, Ninjamon snuck into the room, and attached a Dark Spiral to him. When he awoke, ShogunGekomon immediately went on a rampage through the village, destroying most of it. Raidramon and Digmon managed to knock him out, while Pegasusmon and Nefertimon destroyed the Spire and Shurimon battled Ninjamon. Then, everyone combined their attacks to blast the Dark Spiral, freeing ShogunGekomon. T.K. said of ShogunGekomon that he’d “seen him in action before,” but that’s not true – he wasn’t involved with the first encounter with him in season one.

Later, a ShogunGekomon – possibly the same one, possibly not – was seeing showering under Niagara Falls when wild Digimon began to appear all over Earth. He was approached by Tatum and her Airdramon, and convinced to follow them to New York, where he and all the other wild Digimon in America, were sent back to the DigiWorld.

ShogunGekomon first appears in "Princess Karaoke." Oddly, in season one, ShogunGekomon is always referred to in dialogue as "Shogunmon," but in season two, this error is corrected. His voice is supplied by Bob Papenbrook.

See ShogunGekomon


ShurimonGroup: Mutant – Level: Armour – Type: Data – Attack Techniques: Double Stars, Ninja Wind

Shurimon is the second Armour Digivolved form of Hawkmon, the Digimon partner of Yolei of the DigiDestined. Hawkmon Armour Digivolves with the Digi-Egg of Sincerity to become Shurimon. Shurimon is capable of flight by whirling his bladed hands and feet, which also attack as powerful offensive weapons – as does the large star on his back. His tag line is “The Samurai of Sincerity!”

Shurimon first appeared when Yolei faced down Digitamamon, who had fallen under the control of a Dark Spiral. On a search for a new Digi-Egg, the kids came across Digitamamon’s diner, where they met Mimi and Michael, and were attacked by Gorillamon. In the fight, Digitamamon was sent flying through the air – and when he reappeared, he had been captured by a Dark Spiral. He head-butted Mimi, causing Yolei to fly into a rage, yelling and lecturing Digitamamon, and in the process, coming to some conclusions about her own attitude, as well. As she finished, the Digi-Egg of Sincerity appeared before her, and Halsemon wasted no time in putting it to use, reverting to Hawkmon and then Armour Digivolving into Shurimon for the first time. Shurimon found he could not crack Digitamamon’s shell, so instead, he wedged it open with his back star, and as Pegasusmon and Nefertimon held him in mid-air with their Golden Noose, plunged his arm inside the shell, and shattered the Spiral, freeing him.

Not longer after, the DigiDestined were in peril when they arrived in a village of Floramon and Mushroomon that had come under the Digimon Emperor’s control. As the other Digimon held off the Floramon and Mushroomon, Hawkmon and Yolei were attacked by Ninjamon – and in response, Hawkmon Armour Digivolved to Shurimon to battle him. The fight was cut short when the DigiDestined had to flee to safety, guided by a Gekomon. Ninjamon then strapped a Dark Spiral to ShogunGekomon, who began to destroy the village. While the others attempted to subdue him, Ninjamon challenged Shurimon to another duel. When the Control Spire was destroyed, Ninjamon was freed from the Emperor’s control, but still wanted to finish the duel. Shurimon used his Ninja Wind technique to dupe Ninjamon, who then fled.

Shurimon was next seen along with the other Armour Digimon, trying to stop a Golemon from destroyed a dam. The Golemon was an unliving Digimon created from a Control Spire by Arukenimon, and was relentless, managed to defeat and De-Digivolve all of the Digimon. When Ken and Stingmon arrived, Yolei realised she had been wrong about him, and her D-3 activated, as Hawkmon Digivolved into Aquilamon for the first time, and helped Stingmon to destroy the Golemon.

Shurimon was next seen briefly, helping to rebuild a damaged bridge. He appeared again a little while later, to protect T.K. from swarms of insect Digimon in the Giga House, as T.K. plugged in the microphone for the house’s computer, which was used to free the Digimon from the control of Arukenimon’s flute. Shurimon and Yolei then participated in the fight with Arukenimon, dousing her in pepper. When Mummymon appeared, Shurimon and the others moved to attack, but were quickly bound by his Snake Bandage attack, and De-Digivolved as he and Arukenimon fled. Just prior to BlackWarGreymon’s creation, Shurimon was shown helping to destroy more Control Spires.

When BlackWarGreymon destroyed two of the Destiny Stones, the DigiWorld’s reality barriers began to weaken, and Digimon began to appear in the city of Kyoto, where Yolei was on a class trip. Ken used a Digi-Port to hop to Kyoto, bringing Poromon with him. Stingmon quickly dispatched an Apemon, and then he and Ken headed back to the DigiWorld to the site of a battle with Arukenimon and Mummymon. Yolei encountered Sora’s father and Joe’s brother, Jim Kido, and they then sighted a Musyamon. Poromon became Hawkmon, who Armour Digivolved to Shurimon to battle Musyamon. After a brief battle, Yolei opened a Digi-Port on Jim’s computer, through which Shurimon sent Musyamon.

After this, Shurimon did not reappear until the kids were trapped in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension. The villain subjected them to illusions of their greatest desires, but they managed to defeat them, and then used the power of the dimension to their own ends, making their Digimon Digivolve to all their different forms at once. Shurimon, Hawkmon, Halsemon, Aquilamon and Silphymon joined with all the other Digimon in battling the villain, but when he fled to the DigiWorld, only the “real” incarnation of Hawkmon could cross over, and so Silphymon went through the portal, while the Shurimon avatar faded away.

Shurimon first appears in “The Samurai of Sincerity” – but we do not see his full evolution sequence (with the beam of light coming from Yolei’s D-Terminal and the Digi-Egg of Sincerity emerging from her D-3) until “A Chance Encounter.” In “Big Trouble in Little Edo,” the beam of light is shown coming from Yolei’s D-Terminal, but that particular piece of footage was cut from Halsemon’s sequence, as there the beam is red, instead of green, like it should be. Shurimon’s voice is supplied by Neil Kaplan.

Name: From “shuriken,” Japanese ninja throwing stars.



SilphymonGroup: Animal – Level: Ultimate – Type: Data – Attack Techniques: Static Force, Astro Laser

Silphymon is the DNA Digivolved form of Aquilamon and Gatomon, the Champion level Digimon partners of Yolei and Kari of the DigiDestined. Silphymon is capable of flight, and can protect spheres of powerful crimson energy from his hands. He can also generate energy duplicates of his own body, and launch them at his opponents. Both of these attacks were known as “Static Force” up until Jeff Nimoy and Bob Buchholz left the show, after which the second attack was given the new name of “Astro Laser.”

Silphymon first appeared to battle an unliving Blossomon created by Arukenimon. While searching for Gatomon’s lost Tail Ring, Kari, Yolei and Ken inadvertently stumbled through a phase warp into the enigmatic World of Darkness. At first, Yolei was unable to see the threatening Dark Ocean, but it soon became visible to her. As Kari began to break down, fearing that she lacked the strength to escape from the darkness this time, the trio was attacked by a Blossomon created from several Control Spires by Arukenimon. The transformation of the Spires into Blossomon broke the circuit, opening the warp back to the DigiWorld, allowing Wormmon and Hawkmon to Digivolve to Stingmon and Aquilamon. They were both beaten down by the Blossomon, but Kari was too consumed by fear to let Gatomon Digivolve to help. Yolei’s course of action was a simple one – she slapped Kari across the face, telling her that she was the strongest person she knew, and that they would fight the darkness together. At that moment of union, the pink light that had appeared during Kari’s last encounter with the Dark Ocean manifested itself once again – and Gatomon and Aquilamon DNA Digivolved into Silphymon for the first time. A well placed Static Force later, and Blossomon was no more. Silphymon reverted into Pururumon and Salamon.

Silphymon next appeared to battle Arukenimon and Mummymon, to keep them from destroying the first of the mystical Destiny Stones. Arukenimon restrained Gatomon and first, then Ken and Stingmon arrived on the scene, and freed her and the others, allowing her to combine with Aquilamon. The battle was shortly ended, however, as BlackWarGreymon arrived and destroyed the stone, creating a destructive warp.

Silphymon appeared again with Paildramon to protect the fourth Destiny Stone from BlackWarGreymon. With the power of the stone, Angemon became MagnaAngemon, and almost defeated BlackWarGreymon, but BlackWarGreymon simply destroyed the stone, cutting off his power source.

Silphymon was also part of the battle for the sixth stone, but even with underwater reinforcements in the form of Ikkakumon, Dolphmon and MegaSeadramon, they could not stop BlackWarGreymon from destroying it.

When the search for the final Destiny Stone brought the DigiDestined to a Chinatown area of the DigiWorld, Gatomon and Aquilamon attempted to merge into Silphymon to battle Arukenimon and Mummymon – but unfortunately, they were too hungry, and lacked the energy to Digivolve. The battle was averted, however, as the villainous duo pursued Digitamamon and Tapirmon into the nearby forest, where they found the final Destiny Stone in a natural spring that Digitamamon used to make the noodle soup they had eaten in his restaurant. While this went on, the DigiDestined and their Digimon ate a meal at the abandoned restaurant – the Digimon’s energy was restored, and Silphymon and Paildramon engaged BlackWarGreymon in battle to protect the last stone. As the battle began, Angemon and Ankylomon became Shakkoumon for the first time to help out. The DigiDestined used their Digivices on the stone, freeing Azulongmon, who saw BlackWarGreymon off, and then gave the DigiDestined some much-deserved explanation about their being chosen.

Silphymon appeared again at the battle in Odaiba at Christmas – Arukenimon had brought a Control Spire, and several wild Digimon, into the real world, and after the Armour Digimon destroyed the Spire, the DNA Digivolved Digimon rounded up the Ultimates among the wild Digimon.

After returning from their “world tour” to round up wild Digimon across the globe, the DigiDestined had no time to rest, as Daemon and his Corps appeared in Tokyo, searching for Ken and the Dark Spore within him. Arukenimon spirited Ken away, and as Davis pursued her, Kari, Yolei and their Digimon took on LadyDevimon. Gatomon and Aquilamon merged into Silphymon, who battled with LadyDevimon in the sky above the city – but he was no match for her. Silphymon was sent crashing into the ground, where a couple of teenagers tried to help him up, thinking he and LadyDevimon were in costumes. LadyDevimon grabbed one of the kids, and kicked Silphymon as he lay on the ground – but was then struck from behind by Yolei, wielding a skateboard. The boy was knocked free, and as LadyDevimon lunged at Yolei, Silphymon blasted her with a Static Force from behind, deleting her. Silphymon then participated in the battle with Daemon himself, adding a Static Force to the final push that sent the villain into the World of Darkness.

Silphymon next appeared when the kids were in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension. After they dispelled the illusions of their greatest desires that the villain had subjected them to, the kids were able to use the dimension’s power to their own ends, allowing their Digimon to Digivolve into all their different forms at once. Silphymon, Hawkmon, Aquilamon, Halsemon and Shurimon joined with the other Digimon in battling the villain, but when he fled into the DigiWorld, only the “real” incarnation of Hawkmon could cross over, so Silphymon passed through the portal while the other avatars faded away. Once in the DigiWorld, Silphymon, Shakkoumon and Imperialdramon were almost immediately defeated by MaloMyotismon, who had boosted his power to insane heights by absorbing the darkness from the DigiWorld. The villain then turned his attention to Earth, beginning to blanket it with a shroud of pure darkness, but the DigiDestined from all over the world united against him, using their Digivices to penetrate the darkness. The light from the Digivices brought the all their Digimon partners to the site of the battle, where they absorbed the energy from the light, and used it to re-energise Silphymon, Shakkoumon and Imperialdramon. Then, acting as beacons, the Digimon pulled their partners into the DigiWorld. The DigiDestined convinced the Dark Spore kids to talk about their hopes and dreams, and made them realise that they weren’t meaningless. This positive energy weakened MaloMyotismon, discorporating his body, and then everyone used their Digivices to power up Imperialdramon, who used his Giga Crusher attack to obliterate his spirit, apparently once and for all.

Silphymon first appears in “Opposites Attract.” His voice is supplied by Neil Kaplan and Edie Mirman.

Name: From “sylph,” a mythical elemental spirit. Curiously, sylphs are female, but Silphymon is a male (despite having Gatomon’s data in him – he is Hawkmon’s natural Ultimate [see the FAQ], and hence is male).


The Crest of SincerityThe Crest of Sincerity is the Crest of Mimi of the DigiDestined. After the kids escaped from Kokatorimon, the Crest of Sincerity was released from a giant cactus in the deserts of Server, and floated through the air to Mimi.
It was some time before the Crest would glow, thanks in part to the machinations of DemiDevimon, who had Mimi stay at the palace of the Gekomon and Otamamon, where she manipulated the Digimon there into treating her like a princess, thus making her Crest lose its power. When Sora showed Mimi the right way to act, she took her first steps towards learning humility. Once the kids were back on Earth, battling to stop Myotismon from conquering the planet, Mimi was among those captured and held at the Odaiba convention centre. Sora engineered a breakout, but DarkTyrannomon appeared to stop the escape. Togemon battled him, when Mimi's father tried to help by driving a cart right into the monster's foot. It did nothing, and things looked bleak - Mimi finally started to worry about others before herself, namely her family, and her Crest began to glow, allowing Togemon to Digivolve to Lillymon for the first time to subdue DarkTyrannomon.
The Crest of Sincerity, like all the other Crests, was destroyed by Apocalymon, but Mimi realised that its power had been within her all along.
At some point during the next four years, Mimi gave up the powers associated with the Crest of Sincerity, as did the other kids with their Crests, to seal the DigiWorld off from evil, rendering Palmon unable to Digivolve to the Ultimate level.

The Crest of Sincerity first appears in "The Crest of Sincerity." It finally glows in "Flower Power," and is destroyed in "Now Apocalymon." In Japan, the Crest was originally named "Purity."


The Digi-Egg of SincerityThe Digi-Egg of Sincerity is held by Yolei of the DigiDestined, and is used on Hawkmon to Armour Digivolve him into Shurimon. The kids were searching for the Digi-Egg of Sincerity when they decided to stop and eat in Digitamamon’s diner – but they found they couldn’t pay the bill, and when Digitamamon became enraged, Yolei didn’t take kindly to him. Mimi arrived with Michael, who was able to pay the bill, and surprised the kids with the revelation that he too was a DigiDestined. Then, the diner was attacked by Gorillamon, under the influence of one of the Digimon Emperor’s Dark Spirals, but he was defeated by Togemon and Seadramon. However, while the battle went on, Digitamamon himself was captured by a Spiral, and then attacked the kids, head butting Mimi to the ground. Yolei flew into a rage, and as she yelled at Digitamamon, she came to some sudden understandings about herself, too. When she finished, the Digi-Egg of Sincerity appeared, and Hawkmon became Shurimon for the first time, to free Digitamamon from the Dark Spiral.

The Digi-Egg of Sincerity remained stored within Yolei’s D-Terminal, to be called on whenever it was needed. When the kids were in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension, the used that world’s powers to make their Digimon Digivolve into all their different forms at once, and the Digi-Egg of Sincerity physically transformed into Shurimon. When MaloMyotismon fled into the DigiWorld, only the ‘real’ incarnation of Hawkmon could follow, so Silphymon went through the portal, while the Shurimon avatar faded away.

The Digi-Egg of Sincerity first appears in “The Samurai of Sincerity.” It does not appear in Shurimon’s full Digivolve sequence until “A Chance Encounter.” It was not explicitly shown or stated that it transformed into Shurimon in “The Last Temptation of the DigiDestined,” but the Digi-Eggs of Courage and Friendship were clearly shown to transform into Flamedramon and Raidramon, so it’s safe to assume the same applies to Sincerity. It’s not clear if the fading away of the Shurimon avatar means that the Digi-Egg of Sincerity ceased to exist, but it’s quite likely (the original Japanese title of the episode was “The Last Armour Evolution”).
