BlackGrowlmon is a Dark Dragon Digimon. It is called the "Jet-black Demon Dragon". Although it is fundamentally the same species as Growlmon, it has more of a Virus-species's nature, and is said to be the natural form of Growlmon. Unlike a Growlmon raised by a Tamer, it can roughly be described as having gone feral. BlackGrowlmon's roar is identical to Growlmon's, having the power to shake the solid earth, and before battle, it raises its voice to an offensive roar to intimidate the opponent.[3]


  • Plasma Blade: Develops plasma along the blades on both of its elbows, then strikes the opponent.

  • Dragon Slash
  • Growl Claw (Grow Claw): Attacks using huge claws.
  • Dark Blade: Attacks with an electrified arm.
  • Howling: Makes the enemy cower with a fierce howl.
  • Black Exhaust Flame: Breathes out a flaming inferno along with a roar.


Its shoulders are adorned with the symbol of the Digital Hazard, and the DigiCode on its stripes reads DC de.pngDC ji.pngDC ta.pngDC ru.pngDC mo.pngDC n.pngDC su.pngDC ta.pngDC chouon.png (デジタルモンスター Dejitaru Monsutā?, lit. "Digital Monster").
