Agumon digivolve to... GREYMON!
~ Agumon
Agumon and his partner Taichi "Tai'"' Kamiya are some of the main characters of the first season of Digimon, produced by Toei Animation.


As a young child, Tai Kamiya and his little sister Kari encountered a Digital Monster, or Digimon, and witnessed two of them fighting right near their home. Years later, and Tai has gone away to summer camp with some other kids. One day, glowing devices fall from the sky and a strange portal opened up, sucking the kids into the Digital World, a world made by data and computers. In the Digital World, each kid met their own Digimon partner, with Tai's being the dinosaur-like Agumon. Together with their partners, and with Tai as the designated leader, the kids have to find away to survive the Digital World and get back home.

Powers & Abilities

  • Pepper Breath: Agumon's signature attack, which shoots a ball of flames from his mouth. The fireball is strong enough to melt ice, vaporize a Black Gear, and even knock down a Champion-level Digimon in one shot.
  • Claw Attack: Agumon slashes with his claws.
  • Digivolution: By channeling Tai's emotional energy into data, Agumon gains the ability to Digivolve into bigger and stronger forms. Each time he Digivolves, Agumon is restored to full health and vitality.


  • Digivice: The device that fell from the sky the day Tai went to the Digital World, the Digivice is what lets Tai Digivolve Agumon and signifies him as his partner. It can also project light that purifies corrupted Digimon.
  • Crest of Courage: A crest Tai wears around his neck that he earned due to his bravery. It lets Agumon Digivolve past his Greymon form, and it activates when Tai shows great courage.

Alternate Forms

Greymon: Agumon's Champion form. As Greymon, he becomes much larger, gains a boost in all physical abilities, an armored carapace on his head with three horns on it, and new attacks.

  • Nova Blast: Greymon's signature attack, Nova Blast is a giant fireball shot from the mouth that's hot enough to instantly vaporize water and powerful enough to blast through concrete.
  • Horn Impulse: Greymon gores the opponent with his horns.
  • Tail Crash: Greymon slams his tail into the opponent.

SkullGreymon: Agumon's Dark Digivolution, a form achieved when Greymon digivolves using negative emotions. SkullGreymon is an undead Digimon resembling a skeleton version of Greymon, with a nuclear missile growing out of his back. When Agumon becomes SkullGreymon, he gets driven into a feral bloodlust, attacking everything with the inability to differentiate between friend and foe. However, this doesn't make SkullGreymon a wrong Digivolution for Agumon, just one that doesn't serve the Digidestined's needs. This form takes up a large amount of energy to use, with SkullGreymon reverting back into Koromon only a short time after first Digivolving into the form, making it very impractical compared to MetalGreymon or WarGreymon.

  • Dark Shot: SkullGreymon fires the nuclear missile on his back at the opponent.
  • Double Dark Shot: SkullGreymon rotates his head, converting his body into a missile silo, before firing a stronger version of Dark Shot at the opponent.
  • Curse Breath: SkullGreymon exhales a noxious stream of poison from his mouth.

MetalGreymon: Agumon's Ultimate form. MetalGreymon is a larger form of Greymon with wings for flight and bionic enhancements made of Chrome Digizoid, the toughest metal in the Digital World. For weapons, he has a missile launcher built into his chest and the Trident Arm, a metal gauntlet with three blade-like claws. MetalGreymon is said to have the power of a nuclear warhead.

  • Giga Blaster: MetalGreymon fires missiles from the launcher in his chest. These missiles can vaporize even Ultimate-level Digimon and destroy an entire palace in one shot.
  • Mega Claw: MetalGreymon fires the Trident Arm off like a grappling hook to slash or tie up opponents.

WarGreymon: WarGreymon is Agumon's Mega form, and his strongest Digivolution overall, but also his shortest, at about 10 feet tall. WarGreymon is a humanoid dragon Digimon clad in Chrome Digizoid armor, with the ability to fly. He wields the Dramon Killers, clawed gauntlets that do extra damage against dragons, and the Brave Shield, a shield worn on his back that can bounce back BlackWarGreymon's Terra Destroyer.

  • Terra Force: WarGreymon concentrates energy from the atmosphere into a giant ball of energy that he throws at the opponent. It has enough power to bring Digimon like Alphamon down on one knee, and when fully-charged, can provide a third of the energy of an explosion the size of Mt. Fuji.
  • Dramon Killer: WarGreymon slashes with the Dramon Killers, easily tearing through even Mega-level dragon Digimon like Machinedramon and MetalSeadramon.
  • Great Tornado: WarGreymon spins fast enough to make a tornado before flying at the opponent with the force to drill clean through rock.

  • If he uses up too much energy, will revert to his weaker forms: While Agumon is Digivolved, if he gets too tired or uses up too much energy, he will revert back to either his Agumon form, or his weaker Koromon form.
  • Can't Digivolve while on low energy: If Agumon is tired, or hasn't been properly fed, he will have a harder time Digivolving.
