The Digimon Sovereigns (四聖獣 Shiseijū?, lit. "Four Holy Beasts"), also known as the "Harmonious Ones" and the "Four Sovereign Digimon", are a group of four Mega-level Holy Beast Digimon that are derived from the Japanese myth of the Four Guardian Spirits of Kyoto, itself derived from the Chinese myth of the Four Symbols. Like the Guardian Spirits, they represent and rule over the cardinal points of the compass — Ebonwumon for the north, Zhuqiaomon for the south, Azulongmon for the east, and Baihumon for the west. They are led by Huanglongmon, who represents and is enshrined in the "Center", from which he supervises the others. In turn, each of the four main Sovereigns has three Deva as subordinates.

Due to Lucemon, Huanglongmon was sealed in the deepest, darkest place within the earth. This caused the Sovereigns to lose their rule and struggle for hegemony, but an equilibrium was established that is still maintained.[3] The Sovereigns have reigned over and protected the Digital World since the age of myth, and have passed into legend as beings which are extremely difficult to track down.[4] They are difficult to overthrow with the power of ordinary Mega Digimon, as their power is set as the highest authority among other Digimon, with strength that is said to be the epitome of gods.[5] Unlike normal Digimon which only have one DigiCore per body, each of the Sovereigns has twelve DigiCores which float outside their body and channel their immortality and tremendous power.[6] Except for Huanglongmon, who has eight, each of the Sovereigns also has four red, shining eyes.[7]

While the Chinese names for the guardian spirits were used for the Digimon themselves, as well as in Digimon World 3 for the four cities at the cardinal points of the map of the Amaterasu Server, their Japanese names were used for the respective four cities of the Asuka Server.

Xuanwumon takes Vikaralamon back to the Digital World after Vikaralamon had travelled to the Human World to the ascertain the threat after a large quantity of devices affected the Digital World. Xuanwumon however considered it to just be a "passing noise" and so travels to the Human World to retrieve its subordinate. Clash Battle! Sunrise Showdown

Sometime later, Xuanwumon travels to the spring that controls Digivolution wondering what all the commotion there was about, and sees Meicoomon fighting against a Maycrackmon VM. Xuanwumon explains to Meicoomon that anyone who passes the trial in the spring will gain a strong and righteous heart and tells Meicoomon to pass the trial so that it can overcome its inner darkness. After Meicoomon digivolves to Rasielmon and defeats the Maycrackmon VM, which had digivolved to Raguelmon during the battle, Rasielmon is teleported back to the surface and deduces that the entire set of events were fabricated by the spring, which Xuanwumon confirms, with Rasielmon successfully passing the trial.

Later, the Digital World is suddenly infested by Spiral again. Kumbhiramon and Vajramon argue over why they had suddenly arrived again, though Xuanwumon tells them to stop arguing. It sends them out to deal with the problem and gives them some of its DigiCores to help them. Xuanwumon, alongside the other three members of the Four Holy Beasts, then go into slumber so that they could re-stabilize the Digital World.

In the past, the Four Holy Beasts and the Deva saved the Digital World from the Spiral. Keito's Decisive Fighting Spirit!

One day when Megidramon was rampaging in the Digital World Azulongmon and the other two members of the Four Great Dragons take it upon themselves to fight Megidramon and put a stop to its destruction. After a long fought battle they succeed as Megidramon de-digivolves to Guilmon after running out of energy. Azulongmon decides to leave Guilmon in its Rookie stage as it would not be able to cause much damage in that form, which Magnadramon agrees to. Goldramon however, disagrees — worried that it might turn into Megidramon again and cause another rampage — though it reluctantly goes along with the plan as it didn't want to have to fight the duo. Goldramon decides it will permanently kill Megidramon should it go on another rampage, however. A Guardian Awakens
