DarkTyrannomon is a Dinosaur Digimon. Although it was originally a Tyrannomon-species Digimon, it was infected by a vicious computer virus, causing a bug in its flesh's configuration data and transforming it into a frenzied Digimon. Its body turned black, its arms grew stronger than Tyrannomon's, and its offensive power grew. It identifies anything reflected in its eyes as an enemy and starts attacking, becoming completely frenzied.[7]

DarkTyrannomon is a bipedal Tyrannosaurus rex-like Digimon with blue eyes, two fingers on each hand, three toes on each foot, and a pair or teeth so large they pop out of the mouth. It has black skin on its body, white skin on its belly, and red stripes on its head, tail, arms, and legs. The tip of its tail appears to be sewed to the rest of it, and it has green torn spikes on its back. DarkTyrannomon has white claws on its fingers and dark grey toenails on its toes, wears metal ornaments on its upper claws, and multiple brown belts on its wrists. Its design appears to be based on the fictional Godzilla.

Digimon Adventure

DarkTyrannomon is one of Myotismon's minions. On August 2, when Myotismon isolates Odaiba from the rest of Tokyo, it searches for the Eighth Child. Mr. Ishida and his friends had a close run-in with him but escaped unharmed. DarkTyrannomon reared his head again when the captive populace of Odaiba attempted to escape from the convention center. Togemon battled him but was outmatched when Mr. Tachikawa crashed a van into him but didn't do any damage. DarkTyrannomon is just about to finish off Mimi Tachikawa's parents when Mimi's Crest begins to glow, allowing Togemon to digivolve to Lillymon. Lillymon used a flower chain to tame the savage beast, rendering him harmless. Myotismon appears at that point and casts DarkTyrannomon back to the Digital World. In the original Japanese, Myotismon instead obliterated the Digimon. Flower Power
