Christopher Aonuma (蒼沼 キリハ Aonuma Kiriha?) is the General of the blue "Blue Flare" army. Christopher is described in V-Jump magazine as "cold and calculated" and said to "eliminate enemies, in order to spread his power and influence". He is someone that shows very little empathy towards others including that of his own Digimon, as evident by his treatment of Golemon. He seems to be obsessed with strength and shows interest in Mikey Kudo because of his strength and abilities, wishing to add him to his own army. This is exhibited when he helps Mikey and his friends but when his offer was declined he immediately stopped helping. He recognizes Nene Amano by the beginning of the series, and eventually joins forces with her, though he leaves her when she tries to force him to torture a defeated Stingmon for information, despite him objecting that it would be beneath him. In the second phase of the show, he allies himself with Mikey and Nene, forming the Fusion Fighters United Army.

After Bagramon's defeat, Christopher moved to United States of America and starts to travel the world to investigate the DigiQuartz.


Christopher is a young man looking at least a year older than Mikey. He's tall, blond, and very intimidating with menacing-looking eyes. In Part Two and Hunters, Christopher grows his hair out a little longer, and dons a blue leather jacket.


Christopher is very cold, especially when it comes to his Army. The first hint of his attitude is shown when he throws aside his Golemon after digifusing with his MailBirdramon. He seems to not care much about his Digimon except when it comes to Greymon, MailBirdramon, and Deckerdramon. Deckerdramon even states that the reason he joins Blue Flare is because of the love he saw in Christopher's heart. However when Greymon and MailBirdramon fall down into the depths of the Disc Zone, Christopher does not attempt to help them and states that if they cannot get out of the Zone on their own he would abandon them. This changed in Part Two, as when MetalGreymon is forced digifused with NeoMyotismon, he immediately gives up on MetalGreymon, thinking it impossible to get him back. But when Mikey comes up with the idea to find the white Lopmon and defeat NeoMyotismon, he goes to the measures of risking his life fighting NeoMyotismon's army of LadyDevimon in order to save MetalGreymon.

6-43 Christopher (Burial)

A crying Christopher at his parents' burial.

Christopher was the only son of Daigo and Maria Aonuma. Daigo, a wealthy businessman, encouraged Christopher to be a strong leader. When he was about ten years old he was bullied by an older boy and found comfort in his mother's kindness. When he attempted to follow his father's advice of taking initiative, he ended up getting into a fight that he lost. When he returned home crying and lost in despair, his father coldly called him a loser.

When Daigo was fatally injured in an accident some time afterwards, he told Christopher to be stronger than him. Christopher's grief was magnified when his father's co-workers eagerly took control of the company away from the Aonuma family. Consumed by despair, Christopher sought to prove himself better than everyone else to prove to himself that he was strong.

What Christopher wouldn't realize until many years later, is that his father's seemingly cold dismissal was an attempt at tough love. In truth what his father was deeming weakness was Christopher allowing himself to give up and wallow in sadness and self-pity. His father wanted him to realize that by giving in to depression, he only blocked himself off to others. In truth his father loved him very much, and wanted his son to be able to love and care for others, instead of getting lost in self-pity and doubt. Great Fusion! The Power of Friendship
