Bakemon is a Ghost Digimon. Bakemon is completely covered by a cloth over its head. It is a wicked Digimon born from the Dark Area, and its body is composed of a fiendish virus program.[8] It is said that computers possessed by Bakemon instantly have their systems destroyed.[9] Everything within the cloth is wrapped in mystery, and it is rumored that a portion of the shadow of its true form has become a black hole. It dislikes direct attacks because its fighting strength isn't great[9] but is instead an expert in indirect attacks employing curses or magical power. As a Ghost Digimon, its Level is low.[8] Bakemon seems to get along with Ponchomon.[10]
