"Veemon" is the name that all members of this particular Digimon species share. There are several different Veemon that appear in various Digimon anime and manga series.
The article deals with the most well-known appearance of Veemon, the Digimon Adventure 02 anime Veemon who is the partner of Davis Motomiya, and who had previously been the partner of Ryo Akiyama in a WonderSwan game.
The Veemon of Digimon Adventure 02 also appears in all the Digimon Adventure 02 related movies.
Veemon is a 2-feet tall humanoid lizard-like creature. Its has mostly blue skin, with a white belly and mouth. Veemon's head is large and roughly sphere, with two conical fleshy appendages attached to the back, possibly acting as ears. A small horn pokes where its nose would be.
In the English dub, Veemon speaks with a slight lisp. This is mostly evident in how it pronounces its partner's name as "Davish".
Of all the Adventure/02 digimon, Veemon is the one with the most affinity for hand-to-hand combat, due to both its attacks and its personality. Veemon also demonstrates a persistent romantic interest in Gatomon.(In episode 22 he have a dream that he and Gatomon were dancing and in episode 38 of the english verson Ken teases him about him and Gatomon under the mistletoe.)
Veemon is a main character in Digimon Adventure 02, and also appears in its two related movies Digimon Hurricane Landing!!/Transcendent Evolution!! The Golden Digimentals and Revenge of Diaboromon.
Veemon, along with Hawkmon and Armadillomon, are the three Digimon of ancient times who were sealed away by the Harmonious One Azulongmon, to be awakened again in a time of crisis. Veemon was freed in the first episode of Digimon Adventure 02 when Davis Motomiya lifted the Digi-egg of Courage.
Throughout Digimon Adventure 02, Veemon gains the ability to assume three different Armor forms—one from each of the three Digi-Eggs that its partner Davis Motomiya acquires. After the defeat of the Digimon Emperor, Veemon's natural champion form is unlocked, as well as the ability to DNA Digivolve with Stingmon.
Before the events of Digimon Adventure 02, Veemon was partner to Ryo Akiyama and helped the latter to fight Millenniummon throughout the events of Tag Tamers and D-1 Tamers. If Ryo chooses to rescue Davis in Digimon Tamers: Brave Tamer, he can again partner with Veemon.
Veemon makes an appearance in Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01's special chapter "Double Tamer!! The Great Super Dimensional Battle!!" when he and the rest of the Adventure 02 group are fighting Parallelmon, only to be saved when Takeru "T.K." Takaishi pushes them away from his absorption attack.
Veemon is also usable as a fighter in Digimon Battle Spirit, Digimon Tamers: Battle Spirit Ver. 1.5, and Digimon Rumble Arena. He is also usable in whatever chapter Davis is in in Digimon Tamers: Digimon Medley.

The name "Veemon" refers to only the rookie form of this digimon. Throughout the series, Veemon gains the ability to Digivolve into a number of more powerful forms (each with a different name). The rookie form, however, is its most common and preferred form.
DemiVeemon is Veemon's In-Training form. The name "DemiVeemon" comes from the word "Demi", meaning half; and "Vee", referring to the yellow "V" present on Veemon's forehead.
Veemon takes on its In-Training form whenever it returns to the Real World with Davis Motomiya. DemiVeemon also sometimes appears when Veemon is forced to de-digivolve after a particularly difficult battle.
The name 'Flamedramon' comes from 'flame' and 'dra' as in dragon.
Flamedramon was Veemon's very first Digivolution, achieved almost as soon as Veemon was unsealed in the first episode of Digimon Adventure 02. Davis Motomiya's will to protect Kari Kamiya from an attacking Monochromon initially evoked the Digi-Egg's power, allowing Veemon to Armor Digivolve to Flamedramon to destroy Monochromon's Dark Ring.
After Ken renounced his evil persona, Veemon gained the ability to reach its natural champion form, ExVeemon. ExVeemon took over the role of being Veemon's primary fighting form, and Flamedramon appeared again only a couple of more times.
Flamedramon made its last appearance in the Digimon Adventure 02 finale when the cast was transported to a dimension where (according to Gennai) "wishes can become reality". Here, Veemon was able to digivolve into all of its forms (except Magnamon) at once.
In the movie, Veemon became Flamedramon to fight Kokomon, who had Digivolved to Wendigomon. He was quickly taken down before Terriermon Digivolved to Gargomon. Flamedramon later helped Gargomon, Halsemon and other Digmon fight Kokomon, who Digivolved from Wendigomon to Antylamon. When Antylamon Digivolved to Cherubimon the Armor Digimon were defeated.
In Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01 special chapter "Double Tamer!! The Great Super Dimensional Battle!!", Flamedramon makes an appearance.
Raidramon, the "Storm of Friendship", is formed from Veemon digivolving with the Digi-Egg of Friendship. The Digi-Egg of Friendship first appeared during the fight against the MetalGreymon controlled by the Digimon Emperor. Davis' desire of wanting to help his friends evoked the Digi-Egg's power, allowing Veemon to Armor Digivolve to Raidramon and destroy the Dark Spiral controlling MetalGreymon.
After Ken renounced his evil persona, Veemon was able to Digivolve into its natural champion form ExVeemon. Raidramon was no longer needed as a fighting form, but its speed meant it was used as a means of transportation or to help destroy The Control Spires.
Raidramon made its last appearance in the Digimon Adventure 02 finale when the cast was transported to a dimension where (according to Gennai) "wishes can become reality". Here, Veemon was able to digivolve into all of his forms (except Magnamon) at once.
In Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01 special chapter "Double Tamer!! The Great Super Dimensional Battle!!", Raidramon makes an appearance.
Magnamon, is the Golden Armor form of Veemon created by the Digi-Egg of Miracles. Magnamon first appeared during the Digimon Emperor's reign, when the Digimon Emperor's creation, Kimeramon, was wrecking havoc in the Digital World. Wormmon decided to aid the DigiDestined, and led Veemon and Davis to the power source of the Digimon Emperor's base. There, Davis discovered the Golden Digi-Egg of Miracles, and used its power to Digivolve Veemon into Magnamon.
Magnamon was powerful enough to fight Kimeramon, but eventually lost its ground. Wormmon, in a last attempt to make Ken Ichijouji see the error of his ways, managed to free Magnamon by sacrificing the last of its life force. Magnamon, re-energized by Wormmon’s sacrifice, was able to destroy Kimeramon by using its Magna Explosion attack.
In Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01 special chapter "Double Tamer!! The Great Super Dimensional Battle!!", Magnamon appears when the Tamers trapped by Parallelmon create the Digi-Egg of Miracles, and he defeat the Mega Digimon.
ExVeemon is Veemon's natural champion form. After the Digimon Emperor was defeated and his block against Digivolution lifted, Davis tried to get Veemon to Digivolve into its champion form in a bid to impress Kari. Naturally, none of these attempts were successful. It wasn't until Davis was about to be killed by an irate Tortomon that Veemon was able to Digivolve to save its partner's life.
In Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01 special chapter "Double Tamer!! The Great Super Dimensional Battle!!", Veemon has the ability to digivolve to ExVeemon.
Paildramon is an Ultimate level digimon who is the DNA Digivolved form of ExVeemon and Stingmon (Wormmon's champion form), combining the features and attributes of a Dragon type Digimon with that of an Insectoid type. Some of its recognizable parts are ExVeemon's wings, lower legs, and tail; and Stingmon's hands and body.
Veemon and Wormmon are the first of the second generation DigiDestined Digimon to achieve DNA Digivolution. When Ken's former base threatened to explode, Arukenimon attempted to stop the DigiDestined with an Okuwamon she had created. Ken Ichijouji had been willing to throw away his life to undo the damage he caused, but Davis Motomiya managed to convince him to get over what he did in the past and keep living. At that instant, when the hearts of Davis and Ken were beating as one, ExVeemon and Stingmon were able to merge and form Paildramon.
Paildramon was strong enough to destroy Okuwamon and stop the detonation of Ken's base. For a while, Paildramon was the only ultimate digimon on the DigiDestined's team, and was a valuable ally in their fight against Arukenimon, Mummymon, and later BlackWarGreymon.
Paildramon is Veemon's Ultimate DNA Digivolution in Digimon Tamers: Digimon Medley. He can also achieve Paildramon though leveling up in Digimon Tamers: Brave Tamer, or by equipping both ExVeemon and Stingmon with Calumon cards.
Imperialdramon is a Mega level Digimon who is the Digivolved form of Paildramon. Around Christmas time, Veemon and Wormmon were given power from one of the DigiCores of Azulongmon. This allowed them, as Paildramon, to Digivolve further into Imperialdramon.
Imperialdramon was also responsible for transporting the DigiDestined around the world so they could help the Chosen Children of other countries. Interestingly though Imperialdramon appears to help Sora Takenouchi and Yolei Inoue in Russia even though at the same time, Ken Ichijouji was with Yamato "Matt" Ishida in Mexico and Davis Motomiya was with Mimi Tachikawa and Michael Washington in America. It was through Imperialdramon that MaloMyotismon was finally destroyed at the very end of Digimon Adventure 02.
Imperialdramon Fighter ModeEdit
Imperialdramon Fighter Mode is an alternate form of Imperialdramon. The Fighter Mode gives Imperialdramon a more human shape. It is also said that his fighting power is tripled.
This form was first achieved in Episode 43 of Digimon Adventure 02. When the evil Digimon Daemon and its Daemon Corps appeared, Imperialdramon was frozen by SkullSatamon. To free Imperialdramon, the Digimon of the older DigiDestined De-Digivolved from their Ultimate forms and gave their remaining power to Imperialdramon, triggering the Mode Change.
Imperialdramon Fighter Mode subsequently slew SkullSatamon, participated in battle against Daemon and BlackWarGreymon, and ultimately destroyed MaloMyotismon. In Revenge of Diaboromon, he appears to fight against Armageddemon, but is unable to defeat him until Omnimon donates his energy and allows Imperialdramon to Digivolve into Paladin Mode.
Imperialdramon Fighter Mode is Veemon's Mega DNA Digivolution in Digimon Tamers: Digimon Medley.
Imperialdramon Paladin ModeEdit
Imperialdramon Fighter Mode had been fighting Armageddemon using its Giga Crusher attack. However, it was not strong enough, and ended up injured in Armageddemon's counterattack. Omnimon, who had already been badly injured and nearly torn apart by Armageddemon's laser whips, gave its remaining energy to Imperialdramon. Omnimon's arms separated from its main body to become Agumon and Gabumon again, whilst its main body became the Omni Sword. Imperialdramon Fighter Mode, wielding this sword, turned into Imperialdramon Paladin Mode and defeated Armageddemon. He did this by charging at Armageddemon with his omni sword. He then impaled Armageddemon's nose hole, releasing a sonic explosion that tears Armageddemon into billions of Kuramon that are absorbed by the people's cell phones, then put into the Omni Sword. Armageddemon's death is similar to Diaboromon's, who was also Impaled with the Omni Sword in the nose/head.
- ↑ In Digimon Adventure 02: Tag Tamers, Veemon is Ryo's Digimon. When Davis finds this out in Brave Tamer, he is understandably jealous.
