Appearance and personality
Arcadiamon never expresses any free will, but instead obeys Neo's commands mindlessly.
When the Digi-Egg hatches, Neo names the new Digimon "Arcadiamon" after the ancient Greek city, Arkadia, because he seeks to create his "Arkadia", a perfect world. When Sigma returns from his fight against Tai Kamiya, Neo lets Arcadiamon (In-Training) fight against Sigma's partner Piedmon. Although Arcadiamon is only an In-Training Digimon while Piedmon is a Mega, Piedmon is still defeated when Arcadiamon impales him with a claw arm that he had been hiding in his back. Arcadiamon then absorbs Piedmon's data and digivolves to its Rookie form.
- Data Drain : A large crab-like arm appears from Arcadiamon's back which can be impaled into the opponent. This attack can kill even a Mega Digimon.
Unlike other digimon, Arcadiamon's name does not change when digivolving. This means the name "Arcadiamon" refers to all six of Arcadiamon's forms.
After Arcadiamon absorbed Piedmon's data as a baby, it digivolved to Arcadiamon (Rookie). In this form he resembles a praying mantis. When Neo attacked Holy Angel Castle, Arcadiamon in Rookie form was by his side. Arcadiamon defeated IceLeomon and then fought Lord MagnaAngemon. After escaping from Lord MagnaAngemon's "Destiny Gate", Arcadiamon continues to fight against his digivolved form, Seraphimon. In the fight, Arcadiamon had absorbed some of Leo's data and digivolves into the Champion form.
Arcadiamon digivolves to Arcadiamon (Champion) shortly after absorbing IceLeomon's data, allowing it to block Seraphimon's Seven Heavens attack. In this form, it gains the ability to fly using a pair of small wings. Arcadiamon then defeats Seraphimon and absorbs some of his data.
Arcadiamon digivolves to Arcadiamon (Ultimate) after absorbing Seraphimon's data. As an Ultimate, Arcadiamon protects Neo when Daemon attacks him, and uses Dot Matrix to absorb Daemon.
Arcadiamon digivolves to Arcadiamon (Mega) after absorbing Daemon. Arcadiamon is able to hold its own against Omnimon and Rosemon, and later against Omnimon, Regulumon, and Dominimon. He is also able to win the first time he faces Zeromaru. When Arcadiamon loses the rematch against Zero, Neo steps in, and activates the Digimental. With this, Arcadiamon (Ultra) is finally born.
After a suicide threat from his sister Rei, Neo loses his will to fight. This causes Arcadiamon to degenerate back to Mega. Daemon's personality then returns and seizes control of his creation from the inside—transforming it into his new Daemon (Ultra) form, displacing Arcadiamon.
In this new form, Arcadiamon was able to destroy large areas of land and kill entire armies with single attacks. Unable to watch the massacre, Zero digivolves to the Mega stage and continues the fight with Arcadiamon. At this point, after a suicide threat from his sister Rei, Neo loses his will to fight. This causes Arcadiamon to degenerate back to Mega.
