One of the three Digimon classifications. Vaccine Digimon, like most the DigiDestined's Digimon, exist mainly for the purpose of dealing with threats to the DigiWorld, such as Virus Digimon.

VademonGroup: Alien - Level: Ultimate - Type: Virus - Attack Techniques: Unidentified Flying Kiss, Alien Ray
Vademon is a bizarre Digimon who lives in solitude in the mountains of Server. In the mountains there exists a doorway into a pocket dimension that Vademon calls his own - the dimension is merely an empty void, in which captives float. After the DigiDestined kids had been split up, Vademon struck a deal with DemiDevimon, who suggested that he capture Izzy and place him in his dimension. Vademon tricked Izzy into sacrificing his curiosity, and then stole his Tag and Crest, planning to give them to DemiDevimon in exchange for some of his own curiosity. When DemiDevimon found he couldn't manage to force any of his thoughts out of his mind, the two started arguing, and Pabumon was able to steal back the Tag and Crest and return them to Izzy, who reclaimed his curiosity. Pabumon Digivolved back to Tentomon, and then to Kabuterimon to battle Vademon. The villain used his kiss attack to call down meteors which pummelled Kabuterimon, but when Kabuterimon Digivolved to MegaKabuterimon for the first time, he used his Horn Buster attack to turn Vademon's attack back on him, apparently destroying him. He then blew up the mountainside, freeing Izzy from Vademon's dimension.
Vademon appears in "No Questions, Please." His voice is supplied by Robert Axelrod.
Name: "Vade" comes from "invader," in reference to the fact that he has the appearance of an extra-terrestrial.


VeemonGroup: Dragon – Level: Rookie – Type: Vaccine – Attack Techniques: Vee Headbutt, Vee Punch

Veemon is the Digimon partner of Davis of the DigiDestined, and like his partner, he’s a headstrong, adventure-seeking character, and supposedly brings good luck. Veemon, along with Hawkmon and Armadillomon, was selected to be a partner Digimon for one of the new generation of DigiDestined because of his ability to Armour Digivolve. Sealed away along with the Digi-Egg of Courage, Veemon waited for the arrival of his partner.

The Japanese Wonderswan video games add a little to Veemon's story - before being sealed away to await Davis's arrival, he worked with Ryo to help defeat Millenniummon in the "Tag Tamers" video game. While "Tag Tamers" was partially referenced in the series to create some backstory for Ken, Veemon's involvement was ignored.

Soon, the day came, as the Digimon Emperor began his conquest of the DigiWorld, and Agumon summoned Tai to help. Tai e-mailed Kari, but the mail wound up being received by Yolei, who brought it to the attention of Kari, T.K. and Davis. As they prepared to go into the DigiWorld, Tai found the Digi-Egg of Courage, and at it’s touch, it released three new D-3 Digivices, which were transported to the real world, and were received by Davis, Yolei and Cody. Kari, T.K. and Davis all travelled into the DigiWorld, where they met up with Tai, and each tried to lift the Digi-Egg of Courage. Davis successfully picked it up, releasing Veemon, who was most happy to see him. There was little time to get acquainted, however, as they were then attacked by a Monochromon under the control of one of the Emperor’s Dark Rings. When Kari was threatened, Davis used his courage to open the Digi-Egg, and Veemon Armour Digivolved into Flamedramon and freed the Monochromon.

The following day, Davis returned to the DigiWorld, along with Kari, T.K., Yolei, Cody, Izzy and Sora, and met with Veemon once again. However, it wasn’t long before the Emperor’s forces attacked, as a Drimogemon opened a crevasse beneath Davis and Veemon’s feet, into which they plunged. As they came to, Davis and Veemon discovered they were the Emperor’s prisoners, and the Emperor planned to attach a Dark Ring to Veemon and make him his slave. However, they were saved by Yolei and Cody, who had found their Digi-Eggs and Digimon, and Veemon became Flamedramon again to fend off a Mojyamon. After that battle, Veemon returned to Earth with everyone else, and automatically reverted into his In-Training form of DemiVeemon.

DemiVeemon would automatically Digivolve back into Veemon upon returning the DigiWorld, and accompanied Davis on all the team’s adventures. While the kids were in pursuit of the Emperor, who had captured MetalGreymon with one of his new Dark Spirals, they found the Digi-Egg of Friendship, but Davis had not yet grasped the true meaning of friendship, and so could not lift it. Unwilling to hurt MetalGreymon, Davis’s failure to act in battle almost led to Veemon being severely hurt, but when Davis loudly proclaimed that Veemon was his friend, the Digi-Egg of Friendship activated, and Davis was able to use it to Armour Digivolve Veemon into Raidramon. Raidramon then destroyed the Dark Spiral, freeing MetalGreymon.

Davis and Veemon missed out on the first battled with Kimeramon, as they had been left behind by the other kids, although they arrived in time to help get the Emperor’s captives to safety. When the DigiDestined managed to sneak into the Emperor’s base, they were defeated by Kimeramon, and Veemon reverted to DemiVeemon. However, the Emperor’s partner, Wormmon, in an effort to stop his mad plan, led Davis and DemiVeemon to the Digi-Egg of Miracles, the base’s power source. The light from the Digi-Egg caused DemiVeemon to Digivolve back to Veemon, and then Davis used it to Armour Digivolve Veemon to Magnamon. Magnamon destroyed Kimeramon, and the Emperor reverted to his true persona of Ken Ichijouji.

While repairing the damaged areas of the DigiWorld, Veemon revealed that he had a crush on Gatomon, and he and Davis moped around for a while. However, Davis had plans of his own, as he set up a series of tricks to try and make Veemon Digivolve naturally to the Champion level. Veemon was angered by the tricks, and chased Davis, which culminated in a rockslide that aggravated a Tortomon. The Tortomon then chased Veemon and Davis through the surrounding areas, until they wound up on a cliff top, where Veemon finally Digivolved into his Champion form of ExVeemon, and defeated Tortomon by hurling him off the cliff.

After some initial clashes with the unliving minions of Arukenimon, the DigiDestined gathered at the site of the Emperor’s crashed base, as the reactor core threatened to explode. Ken thought that it was his responsibility to deal with the problem on his own, but Davis forced him to see sense – and then, the amazing happened, as ExVeemon and Stingmon DNA Digivolved into Paildramon to defeat Arukenimon’s Okuwamon and destroyed the reactor.

Veemon and all the other Digimon primarily occupied themselves with destroying the now-dormant Control Spires, to prevent Arukenimon from transforming them into any more unliving Digimon, but he Digivolved into ExVeemon and merged with Stingmon into Paildramon regularly, to battled Arukenimon’s latest creation, BlackWarGreymon, who was systematically destroying the balance-maintaining Destiny Stones.

When wild Digimon began to appear on Earth at Christmas, Davis and Veemon raced to aid Ken, and Paildramon battled with a Triceramon and Mummymon. In the middle of the battle, he and the other DigiDestined Digimon were given a power boost from one of Azulongmon’s Digi-Cores, courtesy of Gennai, and Paildramon Digivolved into his Mega form of Imperialdramon. Imperialdramon then carried the DigiDestined all around the world to gather up the wild Digimon appearing in various countries, and then Davis and Veemon headed to New York City to meet up with Michael and Mimi. They subdued a rogue Cherrymon with help from the other American DigiDestined children, and then sent all the Digimon back to the DigiWorld.

Not long after they returned to Japan, the Daemon Corps appeared, in search of Ken and the Dark Spore within him. The original eight Digimon gave up their restored power to Digivolve to Ultimate, and used the energy to power up Imperialdramon, who Mode Changed to his Fighter Mode and destroyed SkullSatamon. Davis, Veemon and Wormmon then pursued Arukenimon, Mummymon, and their boss, Oikawa, and rescued Ken before he was handed over to Daemon himself. Veemon and Wormmon Digivolved up to Imperialdramon Fighter Mode, and were joined by Silphymon and Shakkoumon in sending Daemon into the World of Darkness.

While in MaloMyotismon’s dream dimension, ExVeemon took on the villain alone, as Davis was able to overcome the fear that had gripped the others. MaloMyotismon then used the powers of the dimension to subject the kids to illusions of their greatest desires – but Davis was happy with his life, and had no insecurities for the illusion to feed off of. Instead, he wished for Veemon to grow stronger – and somehow tapped into the dimension’s power, allowing Veemon to split into his three forms of ExVeemon, Flamedramon and Raidramon all at once. They all helped to free the other kids from their illusions, and then they too used the world’s power to make their Digimon Digivolve to all their forms. Paildramon, Imperialdramon and Imperialdramon Fighter Mode joined in the fight against the villain, but when he fled into the DigiWorld, only the “true” incarnation of Veemon could follow, and so Imperialdramon Fighter Mode crossed the border. After MaloMyotismon’s body was destroyed by the positive energy of the kids’ hope and dreams, Imperialdramon used his Giga Crusher attack to obliterate his spirit – hopefully for good this time.

Three months later, when it was discovered that Diaboromon had survived his battle with Omnimon four years beforehand, DemiVeemon went with Davis, Ken and Wormmon to track down the Kuramon that he was releasing into the real world. While on a train, a swarm of Kuramon appeared through passengers' cell phones, and DemiVeemon became Veemon to attack them, much to Davis's anger. Meanwhile, T.K., Kari and their Digimon had gone onto the Internet to help Omnimon in his battle with Diaboromon, and met with success as they were able to destroy the villain - but just beforehand, having heard that Kari was in the 'net, Davis demanded the gate be opened so he could go to her. Unfortunately, this played right into Diaboromon's hands, as Yolei opened the gate so wide that all the remaining Kuramon escaped through it into the real world. Veemon and Wormmon were swept up in the swarm, and carried all the way to Tokyo Harbour, where the Kuramon merged into Armageddemon. When Davis and Ken were finally able to arrive on the scene, they couldn't get through the crowd to their partners, until Davis screamed in anger, and the crowd parted. Veemon and Wormmon then merged into into Imperialdramon, and, empowered by Omnimon's energy, became Imperialdramon Paladin Mode, and destroyed Armageddemon.

Twenty-five years into the future, the portal to the DigiWorld remains opens, and Veemon is still at Davis’s side. After starting out small with a single noodle cart, Davis’s business has grown into a world-wide chain, and had made him into a very rich man – he and Veemon have even appeared on the cover of TIME magazine.

Veemon first appears in “Enter Flamedramon.” His voice is supplied by Derek Stephen Prince.

Name: A phonetic representation of his Japanese name, “V-mon.” The V stands for “victory.”


VegiemonGroup: Vegetation - Level: Champion - Type: Virus - Attack Techniques: Compost Bomber, Stink Jet
Digitamamon had a Vegiemon acting as his right hand man at his diner. When Tai and T.K. showed up at the diner to aid Matt and Joe in escaping, while Greymon and Garurumon battled Digitamamon, Vegiemon turned his attention to T.K. However, Joe threw himself in front of Vegiemon to save T.K., and Matt realised that Joe really was his friend. His Crest began to glow, and Garurumon Digivolved to WereGarurumon to take out Digitamamon. The Vegiemon fled.
Several more Vegiemon were seen as part of the small (and inept) force gathered by DemiDevimon to be trained by Nanimon so they could act as part of Myotismon's army in the attack on Earth. Nanimon's brutal training regimen soon had all the troops tired and hungry, but Nanimon refused to feed them. Sukamon hit on the idea of using soda to make him tipsy, and the "troops" made themselves scarce as the DigiDestined used the opportunity to get inside the castle.

Four years later, several Vegiemon were seen in the village of Santa Caria, under the control of the Digimon Emperor. They bound the new DigiDestined as their leader, RedVegiemon, battled with Veemon, but then, then Gabumon Digivolved to Garurumon and destroyed the Control Spire, they were freed.

Later, when wild Digimon were appearing all over Earth, an unnamed European DigiDestined child was shown to have a Vegiemon for a partner. This Vegiemon was seen again during the final battle with MaloMyotismon.
A Vegiemon first appears in "Weregarurumon's Diner."
Name: From the word "vegetable."

VenomMyotismonGroup: Evil - Level: Mega - Type: Virus - Attack Technique: Venom Infusion, Nightmare Claw
After Angewomon absorbed the powers of the other DigiDestined's Digimon, she used her Celestial Arrow attack on Myotismon, who was apparently destroyed in a dazzling explosion. However, this was not the case - he had not been destroyed, merely discorporated. While his physical self has been destroyed, his psyche was still intact. As Myotismon's fog bank continued to hang heavy over Odaiba, the dark lord's swarms of bats began to seek out his remaining minions, converting their bodies into energy. Then, amid the ruins of the Odaiba TV station, they corralled around Myotismon's discarded mask, as DemiDevimon watched, allowing Myotismon to be recreated!
Previously, Gennai had unearthed an ancient prophecy, which read: "The sky will be darkened by the wings of many bats, the fallen people will call on the name of the undead Digimon king, and, at the hour of the beast, the king shall rise again, in his true form, AS the beast. Angels will shoot arrows of hope and light at the loved ones of those they have been sent to protect, and a miracle shall happen." As Myotismon's bats headed for the TV station, in the convention centre, the comatose populous of Odaiba began to chant Myotismon's name, and, at 6:06 and six seconds, Myotismon was reborn, as the gargantuan VenomMyotismon, who sought to absorb energy into his body to increase his powers. He began by inhaling DemiDevimon, then proceeded to rampage throughout the district, heading for the convention centre, where the sleeping populous lay, ready for him to consume.
WereGarurumon and MetalGreymon took him on, but proved unable to defeat him - Izzy soon discovered the reason; Myotismon had managed to Digivolve into an unheard of "Mega" level, and was now more powerful than any of the kids' Digimon! Recalling the last part of the prophecy, Izzy realised what had to be done - the angels, Angemon and Angewomon, and to shoot arrows at Matt and Tai, being the loved ones of T.K. and Kari, those who they had been sent to protect. The angels complied, and a miracle DID happen - Agumon and Gabumon Warp-Digivolved to THEIR Mega stages of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon! These two new Digimon, plus the other Champions, attacked VenomMyotismon once more, and WarGreymon used his Nova Force attack to rip a hole straight through the monster. However, VenomMyotismon merely laughed, and told them they had "merely unleashed the beast within!" From VenomMyotismon's gut, a snarling creature appeared, and joined in the destruction of Odaiba. However, energy from the kids Crests began to radiated out, wrapping around VenomMyotismon's limbs, holding him fast. As he demanded to be released, MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon unleashed their attacks on the Beast Within - which was, in actuality, Myotismon's true form - destroying it, and taking VenomMyotismon with it. The villain dissolved into digi-dust, and the fog barrier lifted, as the populous in the convention centre finally awoke.

However, that was not the end of it, as Myotismon’s data – his digital “ghost” – floated freely around, with no-where to go to be reborn. Instead, Myotismon found for himself a host body – that of Yukio Oikawa, a human who had known of the DigiWorld since he was a child, and wanted nothing more than to go there. Myotismon offered to take him there, and Oikawa said he’d do anything Myotismon wanted... and so Myotismon’s spirit entered Oikawa’s body, and there it would remain for the next four years, manipulating the unknowing man’s actions, until, through the power of the Dark Spores, he was reborn as MaloMyotismon!

Digimon Adventure 02 episode #38

English version written by Charlotte Fullerton and Jeff Nimoy & Bob Buchholz

The new DigiDestined bring the original DigiDestined’s Digimon partners into the real world to spend Christmas with them. The new kids go to Ken’s for a Christmas party, while the others attend Matt’s concert, but the festivities are halted when Arukenimon opens a Digi-Port and brings a Control Spire and several wild Digimon to Earth. The DigiDestined manage to destroy the Spire and send the Digimon back to the DigiWorld, but Izzy and Tentomon soon discover that the same thing is happening all across the world!

VilemonGroup: Evil - Level: Champion - Type: Virus - Attack Technique: Nightmare Shocker, Scratch
The Vilemon resemble nothing so much as a cross between a bat and a monkey. The first Vilemon encountered by the DigiDestined were minions of Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters, and were called out by him for the final battle with the DigiDestined. The group was ready to begin the fight, even though they were still short on numbers, until Mimi appeared, with a small army of Digimon allies behind her! The battle began en masse, with the Vilemon getting severely thrashed by Digimon of all sizes. MagnaAngemon used his Gate of Destiny attack to suck in all the Vilemon, and then, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon blasted Piedmon through the gateway also, which sealed behind him and dissolved, trapping him forever.
Four years later, when wild Digimon were appearing all over Earth, some unnamed European DigiDestined were shown to have Vilemon for partners.
Vilemon first appear in "Piedmon's Last Jest."
Name: From the English word "vile," meaning disgusting.

One of the three Digimon classifications. Most – but not all -Virus Digimon are evil, and exist mainly for the purpose of spreading their evil, by conquest and suchlike. One such exception to the “virus Digimon are evil” rule is Wormmon.
