Apocalymon is an Unidentified Digimon. It is a Digimon who appeared when negative thoughts were drawn together by darkness. So little is known about Apocalymon that it may not even be a Digimon. Some claim it appeared to purge the chaos of cyberspace, and reduce it back to nothing; others claim its arrival was spoken of in ancient texts.[6]

Apocalymon arrives after Paildramon, Beelzemon, Sakuyamon, MagnaAngemon, and MetalGarurumon defeat Titamon, VenomMyotismon, and Piedmon — though it retreats after Paildramon digivolves to Imperialdramon Dragon Mode.

More than a decade later; a Millenniumon sends Hiroyuki Kaoru, Hyuuga Kaoru, the Player, Agumon, Tinkermon, a few other DTF members, and a nearby Gotsumon to the past with its Time Unlimited attack. The group arrive at the aforementioned battle, with their presence causing the results of the battle to change. Instead of losing, the villains win and capture the previous heroes — including the child version of Hiroyuki. The sent group were all lacking their partners, meaning none of the sent Digimon could evolve. Gabumon manages to avoid escape though, and ends up sensing that the adult Hiroyuki was an older version of his partner. The joy of seeing Hiroyuki grow up into an adult, and Hiroyuki's joy at seeing his partner one last time, causes Gabumon to warp evolve to Gabumon (Bond of Friendship) — who then proceeds to defeat Apocalymon. DTF are able to find the location of their allies, and send a portal to the past to return them to the future. Gabumon and Hiroyuki say their goodbyes, with Gabumon promising it would save the child version of Hiroyuki and their friends from Apocalymon's minions. It presumably was able to do so, since they were all still alive in the future.
