BlackWarGreymon is a Dragonkin Digimon. Feared as the "Jet-black Dragon Warrior", it is a Virus-species WarGreymon. Although its creed and principles are the polar opposite of those of the Virus Buster WarGreymon, it exists for the sake of its own peculiar justice. It detests cowardice and foul play, and it doesn't consider itself a fellow of vulgar Digimon, even if they are of the same Virus-species. The full details of how it converted to a Virus are a mystery, and the "Brave Shield" equipped to its back is not engraved with the Crest of Courage.[7]

BlackWarGreymon is a tall reptilian Digimon with a humanoid body structure. Like other Greymon-species Digimon, it has Tyrannosaurus rex-like features (such as its feet and the shape of its head), but unlike other Greymon-species Digimon, its back is not angled, giving it a human-like posture. It has black scales covering most of its body; the only exception is its face, which is covered in grey metal, with one spike on its nose, two spikes behind its eyes, and spiky blonde hair on the back of its head. The shin guards, cuirass, and spiked black shoulder pads it wears are held in place by thick, yellow cable-like ropes. It holds two large, black three-clawed gauntlets in its hands. The Brave Shield it carries on its back is completely blank.

In Digimon Battle, BlackWarGreymon has the Crest of Courage on its Brave Shield.
