- Dingo (ディンゴ)
Name used in the Japanese version.
Name used in the American English dub.
- Derek. A male name that means people-ruler. Possibly from Derek Stephen Prince, his American voice actor.
Derek is an Australian DigiDestined partnered to Crabmon. Shortly after Hogan, Cody, Joe, and their partners destroy a Control Spire on the coast of Australia, they hear Derek calling from a surfboard for help as he flees with Crabmon from a Gesomon, Shellmon, and Ebidramon. When he makes it to shore, he introduces himself to Joe, Cody, and Hogan. Joe and Cody help deal with the Digimon by having Armadillomon, Ikkakumon, and Crabmon threaten to cook them and turn them into "Digimon Seafood". The threats work and Gesomon, Shellmon and Ebidramon flee. Ikkakumon, Armadillomon and Crabmon chase them towards the Great Barrier Reef, where another Control Spire is located, while Joe, Cody, Derek, and Hogan follow behind them on a small boat.
Once they see the Control Spire, they stop their pursuit of Gesomon, Shellmon and Ebidramon and focus on destroying the Control Spire. A Scorpiomon tries to stop them. Zudomon and Submarimon struggle to defeat the Digimon, so Derek digivolves Crabmon into Coelamon, who turns the tide of the battle. They defeat the Scorpiomon and destroy the Control Spire, just as other Australian DigiDestined arrive with the Digimon they had found.
After the crisis is over and everyone has returned home, Derek celebrates Christmas with Crabmon by having pizza, pilaf, and curry with seafood toppings.
In August 2010, Derek is one of the many DigiDestined that has their mind seized by Eosmon and interred within the Never World so that he can live within his memories with Crabmon. After Agumon (Bond of Bravery) and Gabumon (Bond of Friendship) destroy the combined Eosmon's Mega form, Derek is freed and regains consciousness in the Real World.
Crabmon is Derek's partner Digimon who is capable of digivolving to Coelamon. He helps Armadillomon and Ikkakumon drive off the Gesomon, Shellmon and Ebidramon that were chasing him and Derek. He then digivolves to Coelamon to help Zudomon and Submarimon fight Scorpiomon, who is guarding a Control Spire. Crabmon is seen during the final battle against MaloMyotismon.
