Digivolution (進化 Shinka?, lit. "Evolution"[1]) is a term in the Digimon series. It is a process used by Digimon, monsters that inhabit a parallel universe called the Digital World that spawned from Earth's telecommunications network. Through Digivolution, a Digimon can develop into a more powerful being.


Digimon reside in the Earth's various electronic networks as well as in the Digital World. As they are essentially computer data they can download additional data to themselves which makes them stronger. If they download enough data, Digivolution is triggered. During Digivolution, the Digimon's appearance changes and, in most instances, becomes significantly stronger than before. The resultant form of the Digimon almost always has a different name than the previous. However, the Digimon's consciousness remains unchanged. If a Digimon does not absorb enough data needed to maintain the form it will not be able to retain that form for long and revert to a lower Level in a matter of time.

Digivolution is divided into multiple Levels, made up of an egg form called the Digi-Egg (デジタマ Digitama?) and six main evolutionary steps.

Main Digivolution Stages (English adaptation terms with Japanese terms in brackets):

  • Fresh (幼年期 I Yōnen-ki I?, lit. "Baby I")
  • In-Training (幼年期 II Yōnen-ki II?, lit. "Baby II")
  • Rookie (成長期 Seichō-ki?, lit. "Child")
  • Champion (成熟期 Seijuku-ki?, lit. "Adult")
  • Ultimate (完全体 Kanzen-tai?, lit. "Perfect")
  • Mega (究極体 Kyūkyoku-tai?, lit. "Ultimate")

If left to its own devices a Digimon will naturally age, and over time may digivolve using data from the environment. Digivolving from the initial Fresh stage usually progresses but each subsequent level takes progressively more time. Because of this, only a sparse number of Digimon naturally reach their final forms. Anger and/or the necessity to survive in a great battle can often spur Digivolution. When Digimon are deleted they either regress completely into Digi-Eggs or break apart into innumerable pieces of errant data that can be easily absorbed or "loaded" by other Digimon.

However, when a Digimon forms a bond with a human, they may digivolve more quickly. Using a Digivice, humans can allow a Digimon to almost-instantaneously digivolve to a higher level by sharing their energy. This action takes a large amount of energy and cannot happen if the Digimon is weak, injured or hungry. Digimon who digivolve using a digivice will degenerate, or "de-digivolve" to a lower form after a certain amount of time or if sufficiently injured in a battle. Usually, a partner Digimon's default stage is Rookie; Gatomon from Digimon Adventure being a notable exception as she naturally digivolved before meeting her human partner Kari Kamiya. However, sufficient injury or energy loss can cause a Digimon to revert to an even lower form after naturally digivolving. A few other Digimon not partnered to humans also have the ability to temporarily digivolve to higher levels, then later revert to their base form with Hackmon from Digimon Adventure tri. being a notable example.

On top of the regular stages, special forms exist that can usually only obtained through special methods:

Special Stages

  • Armor (アーマー体 Āmā-tai?, lit. "Armor Form"), an ancient form of digivolution which only a handful of Digimon are capable of. To gain this form, the Digimon needs to absorb the energy from one of the special Digi-Eggs (デジメンタル Digimental?). If a Digimon has multiple Digi-Eggs, its digivolved forms become progressively more powerful. An Armor Digimon's power is similar to that of a Champion's and were often equated as such in various card games, with some outright stating that they were the same. They are also considered equivalent to Ultimates in Digimon World DS, Digimon World Dawn and Dusk, and Digimon Story: Lost Evolution, and Rookie in Digimon Battle.
  • Hybrid (ハイブリッド体 Haiburiddo-tai?, lit. "Hybrid Form") is a special level which is related to the Spirits of the Legendary Warriors; by merging with one or more of the Spirits, someone can turn into a special Digimon of this level.
    • Human Hybrid is a form that transforms a human or digimon into a human-like Digimon, whose power rivals that of a Champion. To attain this, one requires the H Spirit of one of the Ten Legendary Warriors. Human Hybrids were treated as equivalent to Champions in Digital Monster Card Game and became Champions in Digital Monster Card Game α.
    • Beast Hybrid is a form that transforms a human or digimon into a more bestial-looking Digimon whose power rivals that of an Ultimate's. To attain this, one requires the B Spirit of one of the Ten Legendary Warriors. Beast Hybrids were treated as equivalent to Ultimates in Digital Monster Card Game and became Ultimates in Digital Monster Card Game α.
    • Fusion Hybrid, also known as Fusion Form (融合形態 Yūgō Keitai?), is a powerful form, achieved using both an H-Spirit and B-Spirit. Fusion Hybrids were treated as equivalent to Megas in Digital Monster Card Game and became Megas in Digital Monster Card Game α.
    • Unified Hybrid, also known as Transcend Form (超越形態 Chōetsu Keitai?) uses five H-Spirits and five B-Spirits, combining to give a human or digimon an incredibly advanced and powerful form. Unified Hybrids were treated as equivalent to Megas in Digital Monster Card Game and became Megas in Digital Monster Card Game α.
  • Burst Mode: Shown so far only in Digimon Data Squad and Digimon Masters, though Burst Mode Digimon appear in other media such as cards and games, Burst is "the power that exceeds Mega," though it may just be similar to a mode change where Digimon of a certain level transform to attain greater power such as Imperialdramon Dragon Mode. A Burst Digimon retains a similarity to their original form but has new attacks and a clear increase in power. It is its own special level in Digimon Masters.
  • Ultra (超究極体 Chō Kyūkyoku-tai?, lit. "Super Ultimate") is a level even higher than Mega. Its existence was a major focus of Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01. Only a few Digimon are at this level and many times they are just classified as Mega for convenience, though more recent games have slowly started using it.
  • Xros Wars (クロスウォーズ Kurosu Wōzu?, lit. "Xros Wars"): Levels are not mentioned in Digimon Fusion and its related media, and most of the Digimon created for the series are specified as being at the "Xros Wars" level in the Digimon Reference Book. Some media depict these Digimon as having no level at all.

In the anime and some other media a Digimon will usually shout out its type of Digivolution immediately before digivolving and then shout out its new name immediately after. Examples include: "Agumon digivolve to... Greymon (Agumon shinka! Greymon)!" and "Imperialdramon mode change to... Fighter Mode! (Imperialdramon Mode Change! Fighter Mode)!" Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth parodies this: when an Elecmon and Numemon shout out "Elecmon/Numemon digivolve to!" only for nothing to happen, they state they thought just yelling it was how you digivolve. This confuses the rest of the characters.

Though Digivolution is named after the theory of evolution it is more similar to metamorphosis, though there is also an element of aging involved as seen in the Japanese stage terms.

Effects of Digivolution[]

When a Digimon reaches the next its level of digivolution its appearance may resemble its previous form or have no relationship at all such as Gatomon, who resembles a cat, digivolving to Angewomon, an Archangel Digimon. Usually, with the case of Digivolution to the Champion level the resultant Digimon is larger than the previous form, but Digivolution to the Ultimate level can often cause the Digimon to refine its strength and decrease its size at the same time, such as (e.g. Togemon to Lillymon). The same circumstances can arrive with Mega Digivolution such as MetalGreymon (Vaccine) to WarGreymon.

Forms of Digivolution[]


Standard Digivolution

Digivolution (進化 Shinka?, lit. "Evolution") is one of a Digimon's special abilities. Digivolution is part of a Digimon's natural life cycle with Digimon usually digivolving to stronger forms as a result of age and experience. Not all Digimon may undergo it but it can happen naturally. They may gain armor and/or clothes. In the anime and other media Digimon can only stay in their Digivolution until their energy or data drops to zero. In the dubbed version of Digimon Adventure and its sequel Digivolution is accompanied by a sound reminiscent of a dial-up phone Internet connection, possibly to signify how they download data to become stronger.

Digivolution sometimes causes the Digimon to digivolve to a lower level. In some of the Digimon World games, a Digimon can digivolve to Sukamon or PlatinumSukamon regardless of its current level if it poops too many times (e.g., an Ultimate level can digivolve to the Champion level Sukamon, despite being a level higher). In Digimon Tamers: Battle of Adventurers, Apocalymon digivolved to Mephistomon. In Digimon Masters, the Mega version of Shoutmon can digivolve to the Ultimate level OmegaShoutmon despite it being a level lower.

In Digimon Tamers it is more difficult to trigger Digivolution in partner Digimon. In this universe, the ultimate source of Digivolution for every Digimon is Calumon, a Digimon created by the Digital World's gods the Digimon Sovereigns to put the power of Digivolution in a space small enough that it couldn't be detected by the malicious computer program D-Reaper. Azulongmon Explains It All A Digimon's Tamer must swipe a card[2] into their D-Power as an activator for Calumon to give them Digivolution energy. To digivolve to the Ultimate level a partner Digimon is sent the energy of a Blue Card via the D-Power as well as being given some of Calumon's energy.

In Digimon Data Squad a human partner evokes D.N.A. within themselves. D.N.A. is a manifestation of a human partner's emotions they can send to their Digimon to prompt Digivolution. Some non-partnered Digimon feed off the negative thoughts of people to digivolve in this series. The call is "D.N.A., Charge!".

In each series it is possible for a swarm of Fresh or In-Training Digimon to combine into one of a higher level. As this method of evolution produces a Digimon with one consciousness it cannot be considered a type of DNA Digivolution.

Super Digivolution / Matrix Evolution / Perfect Evolution / Warp Digivolution[]

Super Evolve

Super Digivolution (超進化 Chō Shinka?, lit. "Super Evolution") is the term for when a Digimon digivolves from its Champion stage to its Ultimate form. However, in the English dub of the first two seasons this process is not given a unique term and was simply called Digivolution. This same term is also used in Digimon Fusion to describe temporary Digivolution or Digivolution at will, such as Shoutmon's Digivolution to OmniShoutmon and MetalGreymon's Digivolution to ZekeGreymon.

In Digimon Adventure the power of a Crest is required. At first it requires the DigiDestined to display the trait of their Crest (e.g. Taichi "Tai" Kamiya, courage or Sora Takenouchi, love) in order to achieve Ultimate. Afterwards, it is easier to digivolve to Ultimate but the main activation required an enormous display of the trait in question. Incorrectly displaying that trait results in Dark Digivolution. However towards the end of Digimon Adventure 02 the original eight Digimon are able to digivolve into their Ultimate forms using the power of Azulongmon's DigiCore.

In the Japanese version of Digimon Tamers, both the Champion-to-Ultimate and Rookie-to-Mega progression are proceeded with the words Matrix Evolution. However, only with the latter is the phrase exclaimed by the human partner. In the English adaptation, only evolution to Ultimate is referred to as Matrix Digivolution; the latter referred to as Biomerging. Champion-to-Ultimate Matrix Digivolution is triggered through the aforementioned examples of Calumon and the Blue Cards.

In Digimon Data Squad Perfect Evolution is a method used by the members of DATS to evoke a stronger version of the D.N.A. and evolve their Digimon partner to its Ultimate form. It can be used to digivolve to a Champion stage, or used on a Rookie and have it digivolve straight to Ultimate. The term "Warp Digivolve" is used in the English Dub for the evolution from Rookie to Ultimate. The call is "D.N.A., Full Charge!". There is no prefix used here either.

In Digimon ReArise, Filmon digivolves to Stefilmon using Super Digivolution. Super Digivolve to...! Stefilmon! Raid Clash Battle! Demon Lord of Destruction, Diaboromon! Kabuterimon tries to Super Digivolve but is stopped by an Infermon Clash Battle! Infermon though is able to Super Digivolve to MegaKabuterimon due to Filmon buying time for Kabuterimon by fighting the Infermon. Raid Clash Battle! Demon Lord of Desctruction, Diaboromon!

In Digimon Adventure:, Greymon, Garurumon, Kabuterimon, Birdramon, Ikkakumon, Togemon, Angemon, SkullKnightmon, and Gatomon use this form of digivolution to digivolve to MetalGreymon, WereGarurumon, MegaKabuterimon, Garudamon, Zudomon, Lillymon, MagnaAngemon, AxeKnightmon and Angewomon.

Mega Digivolution[]

Mega Digivolution

Mega Digivolution (究極進化 Kyūkyoku Shinka?, lit. "Ultimate Evolution") is a Digivolution method that allows an Ultimate Digimon to digivolve to Mega.

In Digimon Adventure 02, it is initially used by Paildramon to digivolve to Imperialdramon. Like Digimon Tamers, this series has the Digimon Sovereigns, though only Azulongmon appears here. Azulongmon shares the energy of a DigiCore with the Adventure 02 partner Digimon, a ball of powerful energy that catalyzes Digivolution in a similar way to what Calumon does in Tamers. Combining the power of their Digivices with that of Azulongmon, the other Digimon who were at the In-Training level at the time digivolve to Rookies but the Ultimate-level Paildramon, who is fighting a losing battle against Mummymon and a Triceramon at the time is given the ability to mega digivolve to Imperialdramon. Dramon Power By the time of Digimon Adventure tri., it is also used by Zudomon, Lillymon, MegaKabuterimon, Garudamon, MagnaAngemon, MetalGreymon, WereGarurumon and Angewomon so they can reach their Mega forms, Vikemon, Rosemon, HerculesKabuterimon, Hououmon, Seraphimon, WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon and Magnadramon. The dub however, only refers to it as "digivolution". Determination Confession Loss Coexistence Future

In Digimon ReArise, Stefilmon uses Mega Digivolution to digivolve to Rasenmon. A New Quest! The Mysterious Visitor

In Digimon Adventure:, MetalGreymon Alterous Mode, WereGarurumon Sagittarius Mode, MegaKabuterimon, Garudamon, Zudomon, Lillymon, MagnaAngemon, and Angewomon use this form of digivolution to become WarGreymon The Mega Digimon, WarGreymon (or BlitzGreymon) Operation Satellite Sniper, MetalGarurumon Activate, MetalGarurumon (or CresGarurumon) The Gold Wolf of the Crescent Moon, HerculesKabuterimon Bolt, HerculesKabuterimon, Phoenixmon Dance of the Heavens, Phoenixmon, Vikemon Vikemon Ventures the Glaciers, Rosemon The Digimon School Under Attack, Goldramon and Magnadramon The End, the Ultimate Celestial Battle or Seraphimon and Ophanimon. The Angels' Determination


Degeneration (退化 Taika?), or De-Digivolution is the opposite of Digivolution. In this process a Digimon reverts to a lower form; this usually occurs when they lose enough of their data, either through falling in battle or simply consuming a temporary boost of energy.

In the anime a Digimon that has used up all the energy from a temporary Digivolution will generally de-digivolve further depending on how high of a form they had been using; Champion to Rookie, Ultimate to In-Training and Mega to Fresh. This first happens in Digimon Adventure when Angemon reverts to Digi-Egg form after using his energy to defeat Devimon. The Legend of the DigiDestined As the Digimon uses the higher form more often they acclimate to it and do not fall so far when it expires. One of the first actual uses of the term "De-Digivolve" in the anime is by Koushiro "Izzy" Izumi. No Questions, Please

In Digimon World DS the protagonist can have a Digimon degenerate in order to increase its total Aptitude (i.e. maximum attainable level), as well as to improve its stats generally when compared to a new Digimon of the same form and follow alternative Digivolution paths some Digivolution paths require the increase in Aptitude, as the necessary level is higher than the Digimon's initial Aptitude. In addition, the Mystic Energy forces nearly all of the Digimon citizens of CITY to degenerate to Digi-Eggs when it attacks and steals their data. The Cyber Sleuth games replaces aptitude with ABI, though it works mostly the same way whilst max level was changed to be its own mechanic.

In Digimon Adventure Apocalymon can forcefully revert a Digimon to the lowest form they are able to maintain (Reverse Digivolution). The Fate of Two Worlds

In Digimon Tamers Antylamon was stripped of her abilities and reverted to Lopmon as punishment for protecting Suzie Wong Rabbit Transit but was eventually able to regain her former power. Shadow of the Beast King In Digimon World 3 Persiamon can use a technique (Helter Skelter) which forces its target to de-digivolve into its Rookie form.

Special Digivolution Types[]

These methods branch out from normal Digivolution.

Dark Digivolution[]

Dark Digivolution

Dark Digivolution (暗黒進化 Ankoku Shinka?, lit. "Dark Evolution") is a corrupt form of regular Digivolution, usually resulting in evil Digimon. A Digimon dark digivolves when someone Forces it to digivolve forcefully with a clouded mind or dark power. A Digimon digivolved through this method is evil and perceives nothing but its urges to destroy, making it very dangerous.

In Digimon Adventure Taichi "Tai" Kamiya pressures his partner Greymon to digivolve to his Ultimate stage resulting in SkullGreymon. The Arrival of Skullgreymon Greymon dark digivolves to SkullGreymon again The Emperor's New Home and then into a virus version of MetalGreymon The Captive Digimon in Digimon Adventure 02 as a result of the Digimon Emperor's Dark Ring, Dark Spiral and his black D-3.

In Digimon Xros Wars Shademon's larva's Digivolution after being fed hearts of despair is also a Dark Digivolution. Xros Miracle!! Reel in a Sliver of Hope!![3]

In Digimon World: Next Order Kouta Hirose abuses his Growlmon partner Yukimura in an attempt to have him digivolve into a Machinedramon so that he would be strong enough to take on the enemy Machinedramon that had been terrorizing the Digital World. However, Yukimura instead dark digivolves into a SkullGreymon who goes on a rampage until killed by the Hero's partners. Shoma Tsuzuki uses the same process to turn his Omegamon Zwart D Enforcer into Omegamon Alter-B, who is defeated by the Hero shortly afterwards. Unlike Yukimura, Alter-B remains in this form and manages to gain control of himself, then later becomes the official partner of Shoma in this same form. Digimon World: Next Order

He then has Master absorb him. In the truthful route, Master is defeated which causes Haruchika to be ejected from Master which also causes Master to become Fanglongmon Ruin Mode. Though it was no longer Master, Fanglongmon Ruin Mode was simply a slide evolution and was still a dark evolved form. In the routes other than the truthful route, Shuuji Kayama beats up his Lopmon whilst demanding it evolve so it could kill their enemies. Lopmon dark evolves to Wendigomon then eats Shuuji. In the wrathful route, after seeing Saki Kimishima die, Aoi Shibuya decides she never wants to see anyone ever die again and wants everyone in the world to become friends so no one would ever get hurt again. This causes her to heal Piedmon in a mistaken assumption that he would befriend her as thanks but he instead beats her and her partner Labramon up, leaving them on the verge of death. Aoi's desire to live causes dark energy to fuse her and Labramon together to create Plutomon, with it being stated to be a dark evolution.

In Digimon Seekers, Eiji Nagasumi's jealously and anger towards Leon Alexander causes his partner Loogarmon to digivolve to Helloogarmon. Eiji had decided to murder Leon due to these emotions, whilst Loogarmon had only wanted to defeat Leon and his partner Pulsemon. Helloogarmon goes on an uncontrollable rampage, with the Mindlinked Eiji losing access to his controls which meant he could no longer issue commands to his partner. As Helloogarmon rampaged, Eiji realized the error of his ways but was unable to do anything. This eventually lead to Leon overusing his Mindlink time causing him to fall into a DMIA induced coma. Upon coming to its senses and reverting back to Loogamon, it theorizes it had lost control as their feelings weren't in synch.

Armor Digivolution[]

Armor Digivolution

Armor Digivolution (アーマー進化 Āmā Shinka?, lit. "Armor Evolution") is the fusion of a Digimon with a Digi-Egg (デジメンタル Digimentaru?, "Digimental"). It is featured in Digimon Adventure 02, the card game, manga, drama CDs, and video games. It is an ancient form of Digivolution that was developed when the Digital World was young and it was almost impossible to digivolve even to the Champion level without assistance.

Digi-Eggs aren’t necessarily a requirement for Armor Digivolution, and the powers afforded by Armor Digivolution can vary quite a bit, so some are assigned a level based on their power to make things simpler. There is an affinity between a Digimon and a Digi-Egg, so using an incompatible Digi-Egg can cause the Digi-Egg's power to run amok. With a good affinity however, an Armor Digimon can see its power become equivalent to that of a Mega Digimon. Each Digi-Egg contains an elemental power and and were left behind by various Digimon after their demise.[4]

It is used in Digimon Adventure 02, when the Digimon Emperor's D-3 and the presence of Control Spires prevent Digimon from digivolving to the Champion level.

A DigiDestined activates Armor Digivolution by shouting, "Digi-Armor Energize!" or "Digimental Up!". In the English dub, a golden Digi-Egg is activated by shouting "Golden Armor Energize!".

DNA Digivolution[]

DNA Digivolution

DNA Digivolution is a method of Digivolution in the English dub, first used in Our War Game!. It combines the similar processes known in the original Japanese as Jogres Evolution (ジョグレス進化 Joguresu Shinka?), a portmanteau of the words "Joint" and Progress" that is also romanized as Jogress,[5] and Fusion Evolution (合体進化 Gattai Shinka?). In Digimon Survive, Fusion is instead uses Fusion (融合 Yūgō?).

Following the level retcons in the Digimon Reference Book that gave Xros Wars Digimon levels, the ability for the Fusion to be at a lower level than one of its components occurred. For example, Shoutmon X4B (a fusion of Shoutmon X4 and Beelzemon (2010 anime)) is an Ultimate level Digimon despite Beelzemon being a Mega level.

In Digimon Adventure: Our War Game!, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon DNA digivolve into Omnimon to fight Diaboromon. This is later identified as a DNA digivolution by Koushiro "Izzy" Izumi after the first formation of Paildramon. Fusion Confusion

In Digimon Adventure 02, the two original Digimon consciousnesses join into one, and the combined Digimon can speak with both voices—often simultaneously. Gatomon's tail ring, in the possession of Gennai, gives the partner Digimon the power to DNA digivolve. A Million Points of Light

In the Digimon Xros Wars manga, DNA Digivolution allows a dying Starmon to survive when he is unable to gather enough energy for normal Digivolution. Xros Stars!! Like a Shooting Star!!

In the English dub of Revenge of Diaboromon, Warp DNA Digivolution allows two Rookie-level Digimon to skip Digivolution to the required stage for combining and go straight to the DNA digivolved form. Agumon and Gabumon are the only ones to have used this, becoming Omnimon without warp-digivolving to WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon.

In Digimon Adventure:, Greymon and Garurumon DNA digivolve into Omnimon in order to stop the Mega Argomon from destroying Tokyo. War Game And to the Digital World However, Agumon at least is left with no memory of his time as Omnimon after dedigivolving. The Celestial Digimon They later DNA digivolve into Omnimon once again to stop Nidhoggmon. Countdown to Tokyo's Annihilation Tai Kamiya subsequently learns from Valkyrimon that during an ancient war, the prayers for salvation of the fallen Digimon and the power of Seraphimon and Ophanimon had allowed WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon to fuse into Omnimon in order to destroy ZeedMillenniummon. The Crest of Courage During the final battle with Abbadomon, the entire human world sends their hope into the Network which is then channeled by Rosemon, Vikemon, Phoenixmon and HerculesKabuterimon to Seraphimon and Ophanimon who use the power to DNA digivolve WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon into Omnimon once again. The Last Miracle, The Last Power

In Digimon Adventure:, the Vademon resurrect Millenniummon by DNA digivolving Moon=Millenniummon and Kimeramon. The God of Evil Descends, Millenniummon This is accomplished by using the digivolution method that was developed by Devimon. The Angels' Determination

DNA Digivolution is handled differently in some video games. In Digimon World 2, Digimon Adventure 02: Tag Tamers, Digimon Adventure 02: D-1 Tamers, and Digimon World Dawn and Dusk, DNA digivolving two Digimon together will permanently fuse them into one new Digimon with increased stats, sometimes forming a new one but other times not. Depending on the game, the resulting Digimon can be either a higher or lower level than its components.

Digimon Tamers: Brave Tamer features Calumon cards which provide the DNA Digivolution function during battle to two Digimon who are equipped with them. The combined Digimon will be the next Digivolution stage of the Digimon who has the lower digivolutionary level or, if the digivolutionary levels are the same, the one who initiates the DNA Digivolution. Digimon World 3 instead provides the capability for two Digimon of specific species, one active and one on the bench, to merge into a single Digimon and perform an attack. It then acts as a tagging maneuver, allowing the benched Digimon to take the place of the active one. Some Digimon are also only available through DNA Digivolution.

DNA Digivolution (Jogres Evolution)[]

This form of DNA Digivolution allows two or more Digimon to combine into a single Digimon of a higher level.[6][7]

DNA Digivolution (Fusion Evolution)[]

This type of DNA Digivolution is often synonymous with the Jogres Evolution type but sometimes treated as a separate phenomenon. "Fusion" is used to refer to Digivolutions in which, unlike Jogress Evolution, the resulting Digimon remains the same Level as its components.[6][please confirm][7] This generally only applies to Digimon formed from the combination of Mega Digimon in continuities that lack the Ultra level though after the Reference Book update that gave Xros Wars Digimon levels it can now refer to Digimon such as SkullKnightmon Cavalier Mode, a Champion that is a result of two Champions fusing. This is not to be confused with the term "Fusion Evolution" used in the English dub of Digimon Frontier.

Extra Cross Evolution[]

Extra Cross Evolution, also shortened to EXE, is a form of digivolution exclusive to Digimon World: Next Order. It is similar DNA Digivolution, however it is given a different name as DNA Digivolution in Next Order is permanent, whilst EXE is temporary and only available during Battle. DNA is specific to only certain Digimon, EXE however, can be achieved by every single Mega level Digimon. Every Mega can perform EXE with every other Mega and Ultimate level Digimon, leading to thousands of combinations. The resulting Digimon will be one of the Yellow Mega level Digimon. Both of the Hero's partner Digimon's stats will be combined, though this cannot cause stats to go above the maximum. EXE can be performed manually, although, there is a small chance of an EXE evolution after they are defeated in battle, which will cause them to be fully healed when the EXE is complete.

Blast DNA Digivolution[]

Blast DNA Digivolution (ブラストジョグレス Burasuto Joguresu?) is a combination of Blast Digivolution and DNA Digivolution introduced in the Digimon Card Game in EX-06. Just like regular DNA Digivolution (specifically, the Jogress version) it allows two Digimon to combine into a single Digimon of a higher level. In the Digimon Card Game, just like regular Blast Digivolution, Ace Digimon that can have Blast DNA Digivolve have Blast DNA Digivolution as an ability. When a player attacks another player — provided the requirements are met — the attacked player can counter and Blast DNA Digivolve with an Ace Digimon in their hand for free. If the Digimon leaves the field for any reason, the player loses memory — the amount lost varying by Digimon. Unlike with regular Blast Digivolution, in which the digivolving Digimon must already be on the field, Blast DNA Digivolution has the two Digimon being combined together in the player's hand — as such all three Digimon must be in their hand for it to work.

Warp Digivolution / Ultimate Evolution / Double Warp Digivolution[]

DNA Digivolution

Warp Digivolution (ワープ進化 Wāpu Shinka?, lit. "Warp Evolution") is a digivolution process where a Digimon can reach a higher level directly bypassing any intermediate phases. Notable Digimon who have used this, although only implicitly in some cases, are Agumon, Gabumon, Leomon, Angemon, Keramon, Lopmon, and Impmon. In few cases, particularly Agumon, Gabumon, and Angemon, they do not actually bypass any intermediate phases—they simply go through it very quickly. This is shown by Agumon and Gabumon who usually have their Champion and Ultimate forms appear during their respective Warp Digivolutions, and MagnaAngemon appears briefly when Angemon warp digivolves to Seraphimon. In Digimon Adventure tri., warp digivolutions skip the intermediate phases.

In Digimon Tamers Impmon gains the ability to warp digivolve to Beelzemon Motorcycle Madness, though it is never actually called Warp Digivolution in the series.

In Digimon Data Squad, "warp digivolve" refers to digivolving directly from Rookie to Ultimate. The term Double Warp Digivolution is used when a Digimon evolves straight from Rookie to Mega, much like Warp Digivolution from the first two seasons with one subtle difference: during previous seasons' Warp Digivolution, the intermediate phases of the Digimon are shown, but during Double Warp Digivolution all intermediate phases are skipped and not shown at all. The call is "D.N.A., Charge! Overdrive!". In the original Japanese, it is called Ultimate Evolution and during evolution, the Digimon simply uses the term shinka without any prefix.

In Digimon ReArise and Digimon Survive, warp digivolution skips the intermediate stages. In Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, the intermediate stages are skipped when Hackmon warp digivolves to Jesmon. In Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory however, which is in the same setting as Cyber Sleuth, Turuiemon is briefly shown when Lopmon warp digivolves to Antylamon.

Mode Change[]

Mode Change

A Mode Change (モード・チェンジ Mōdo Chenji?) occurs when a Digimon becomes a different version of its current species, usually with "Mode" in its name. The new mode is usually more powerful than the previous one. Mode Change, unlike Slide Evolution, rewrites the data within a Digimon's DigiCore, whilst Slide Evolution rewrites the DigiCore itself and turns the Digimon into a completely different Digimon.[8] For example, if a MetalGreymon (Vaccine) were to digivolve to MetalGreymon Alterous Mode, it would be Mode Change — as both Digimon are MetalGreymon. Instead, it if digivolved to WereGarurumon, it would be Slide Evolution as WereGarurumon is a completely different Digimon.

In Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory Mode Changes differ from standard Digivolutions in that they allow the Digimon to freely shift between Mode Change forms.

Digimon known to Mode Change are:

Slide Evolution[]


Slide Evolution (スライド・エボリューション Suraido Eboryūshon?) is when a Digimon digivolves to another Digimon species of the same level. Unlike, Mode Change, which rewrites the data within a Digimon's DigiCore, Slide Evolution rewrites the DigiCore itself and turns the Digimon into a completely different Digimon.[8] For example, if a MetalGreymon (Vaccine) were to digivolve to WereGarurumon, it would be Slide Evolution as WereGarurumon is a completely different Digimon. If it instead digivolved to MetalGreymon Alterous Mode, it would be Mode Change — as both Digimon are MetalGreymon.

In Digimon Frontier, it is primarily a way for a Hybrid Digimon to switch back and forth between its Human and Beast forms, such as Grumblemon to Gigasmon Can't Keep a Grumblemon Down, but it is also commonly used by non-Hybrid Digimon to switch between its pure and evil forms, such as Monzaemon to WaruMonzaemon. Island of Misfit Boys Along with using it for battle purposes, after defeating an enemy in their Beast form, the DigiDestined use it to switch back to their Human form to scan the enemy's DigiCode. Darcmon also uses Slide Evolution to become higher level Digimon than itself, though Frontier never states Digimon have levels and came before Bandai gave an official explanation as to what Slide Evolution was.

Warp DNA Digivolution[]

Warp DNA Digivolution

Warp DNA Digivolution is a simultaneous performance of Warp Digivolution and DNA Digivolution, allowing two Digimon to go straight from lower levels to a higher level that is normally a result of DNA Digivolution.

In Revenge of Diaboromon, Agumon and Gabumon warp DNA digivolve together directly into Omnimon.

Biomerge Digivolution[]

Warp DNA Digivolution

Biomerge Digivolution, or simply just Biomerge (マトリックス・エボリューション Matorikkusu Eboryūshon?, lit. "Matrix Evolution") is possibly used only in Digimon Tamers. It is a form of Warp Digivolution similar to DNA Digivolution and Digifuse, in that a partner Digimon merges with its human Tamer to digivolve directly to the Mega level. Like DNA Digivolution and Digifuse, the Digivolution is unlocked as a result of the components, in this case the Digimon and their Tamer, being united in a single overriding goal, and yet the original consciousnesses still exist independently within the resultant Digimon on a spiritual level. In a Biomerge, this is represented as the human Tamer lying naked within his or her partner, surrounded by a bubble of light named the Tamer Ball (テイマー・ボール Teimā Bōru?),[9][10] Unlike DNA Digivolution and Digifuse, Biomerge Digivolution can normally only be performed in the Digital World, where both the human and Digimon components are composed of data, but in Digimon Tamers this is rectified when Dobermon delivers power from the Digimon Sovereigns to be used as an interface. The Messenger Within the fiction, the four Digimon shown to have biomerged are indicated to be quite powerful, even for their Mega level.

A Tamer activates Biomerging by commanding, "Biomerge Activate!" in the English dub. In the Japanese version, the term and command Matrix Evolution was used both for evolution to Ultimate and Biomerging.

Tamers and Digimon known to use Biomerging in the anime are:

Erika Mishima does something similar with her Wormmon in Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory, merging with him to become Hudiemon whilst in Cyberspace EDEN, though Hudiemon is at the Champion level, and the digivolution is permanent. Only Erika's consciousness remained.

In Digimon Survive, during the wrafthful route, Aoi Shibuya and Labramon fuse together to become Plutomon. This was permanent, and only Aoi's consciousness remained.

Shining Digivolution[]

Shining Digivolution

Shining Digivolution is Calumon's attack. In Digimon Tamers, when Calumon releases all of his Digivolution energy, he causes every Digimon in the Digital World to digivolve to Mega. Janyu's Ark It is called the "Light of Digivolution" in Digimon World DS.



Pseudo-Evolution (擬似進化 Giji Shinka?) is what Akihiro Kurata terms the process he uses to digivolve Gizumon into Gizumon-AT and then Gizumon-XT, with the use of an artificial D.N.A. There is no official term for the process in the English version.

Bio-Hybrid Digivolution[]

Bio-Hybrid Digivolution is a method of Digivolution in the English dub of Digimon Data Squad. It combines the similar processes known in the original Japanese as Hyper Bio Evolution (ハイパー・バイオ・エボリューション Haipā Baio Eboryūshon?) and Hyper Bio Extra Evolution (ハイパー・バイオ・エクストラ・エボリューション Haipā Baio Ekusutora Eboryūshon?).

Bio-Hybrid Digivolution (Hyper Bio Evolution)[]

Bio-Hybrid Digivolution (ハイパー・バイオ・エボリューション Haipā Baio Eboryūshon?, lit. "Hyper Bio Evolution") enables Kouki Tsubasa, Nanami, and Ivan to become their first Digimon forms, based on three Armor Digimon. However, the resulting forms are far more powerful than regular Armor types. This type of digivolution is made possible by injecting the scattered data of Digimon collected by Gizumon into a human body, so that the data can merge with the human's D.N.A. . When the D.N.A. is released, the human's body transforms into that of the Digimon, granting them access to their new form's abilities. When the Bio evolution is deleted, the Digimon data reverts back into a Digi-Egg and leaves the human body, and the human cannot evolve into a Digimon again unless re-injected.[citation needed] The call is "Bio Hybrid D.N.A. Charge".

The Bio-Hybrids' first forms are:

Bio-Hybrid Digivolution (Hyper Bio Extra Evolution)[]

Bio-Hybrid Digivolution (ハイパー・バイオ・エクストラ・エボリューション Haipā Baio Ekusutora Eboryūshon?, lit. "Hyper Bio Extra Evolution") is caused by Akihiro Kurata re-injecting more powerful digimon data into Kouki Tsubasa, Ivan, and Nanami using data gathered from Gizumon-AT and Gizumon-XT. This power is very dangerous because if the human body cannot contain the digimon data, they also are killed. However, these three overcome this situation and receive the power of Mega level Digimon. The call in English is either "Bio Hybrid D.N.A. Full Charge" or "Bio Hybrid D.N.A. Charge".

The Bio-Hybrids' second forms are:

Burst Evolution[]

Burst Evolution

Burst Evolution (バースト・エボリューション Bāsuto Eboryūshon?), also known as Burst Digivolution, is used in Digimon Data Squad and in Digimon Next. In Data Squad, it is a Mode Change, it enables a Mega Digimon to reach its Burst Mode; an even more-powerful form. The call is "Charge! D.N.A. Burst Mode!" in English, and "Charge! Digisoul Burst!" in Japanese. ShineGreymon, MirageGaogamon, Rosemon, Ravemon, BanchoLeomon, and Agumon all manage to get to Burst Mode.

In Next, it is simply a way to digivolve to Mega in the absence of a Digivice; however, it quickly consumes the tamer's life-force, and is dangerous to use. It is invoked by calling out "Burst Charge!". Sho Kahara uses it to digivolve Peckmon to Ravemon Death Struggle: Three Commanders!, while Yu Inui attempts the same to get out of a bad situation so that Tsurugi Tatsuno can continue on. Anti-God Devices Digimon Twin!


X-Antibody Digivolution

X-Digivolution (X-進化 (ゼヴォリューション) X-Shinka (Zevoryūshon)?, lit. "X-Evolution") is a unique type of Digivolution that occurs when a Digimon merges the X Antibody into its DigiCore.

Death-X Evolution[]


Death-X Evolution (死のX-進化 (デクスリューション) Shi no X-Shinka (Dekusuryūshon)?) is a form of X Evolution activated when a Digimon dies. Dorugamon, DoruGreymon, and Dorugoramon can each perform Death-X Evolution to become DexDorugamon, DexDoruGreymon, and DexDorugoramon.[citation needed]

In Digimon Chronicle X, GranDracmon defeats Digimon in the old Digital World, forces them to undergo Death-X Evolution, and then sends them to the Dark Area. Digimon Chronicle X

In Digimon Seekers, Tomonori Ryusenji, having access to the Source Domain, uses it to put large amounts of data into Dorugoramon's DigiCore via its interface, with everyone realizing that if it continued — Dorugoramon would die as its body would be unable to handle that much data. Dorugoramon, in a bid not to die, Death-X evolves and becomes DexDorugoramon. Sons of Chaos: Seekers Chapter 4-10 Sons of Chaos: Seekers Chapter 4-11 Eiji Nagasumi, whilst seeing his Fenriloogamon battling DexDorugoramon, realizes that DexDorugoramon wasn't alive — Dorugoramon had died and was now a zombie as DexDorugoramon. Sons of Chaos: Seekers Chapter 4-12

Blast Digivolution[]


Blast Digivolution (ブラスト進化 Burasuto Shinka?, lit. "Blast Evolution") appears in Digimon World 3, Pendulum X 3.0, D-Cyber Ultimate, and the Digimon Card Game. The Card Game also introduced Blast DNA Digivolution.

In Digimon World 3, When a Digimon fills its Blast Gauge by taking damage from the enemy or using certain item (DV Plug), the Digimon will digivolve into a new Digimon based on its current level for several turns. That Digimon will be fully healed and have access to its personal finisher. Furthermore, any technique used during that state costs no MP. During that state, the Digimon cannot use DNA DV.

In Pendulum X 3.0 and D-Cyber Ultimate, Blast Digivolution has Digimon temporarily digivolve into a higher form for one attack. Orange will have them digivolve one level higher, whilst green will digivolve them two levels higher. Megas digivolve into more powerful Megas. There are multiple Digimon only available via Blast Digivolution.

In the Digimon Card Game, Ace Digimon have Blast Digivolution as an ability. When a player attacks another player — provided the requirements are met — the attacked player can counter and Blast Digivolve with an Ace Digimon in their hand for free. If the Digimon leaves the field for any reason, the player loses memory — the amount lost varying by Digimon. It also introduced Blast DNA Digivolution.

The concept of Sudden Evolution (突発進化 Toppatsu Shinka?) in Digimon World DS is similar. By using the "Digivolution Disk" item, a Digimon can attain a Mega Digimon form related to its family, which will then perform a single attack before reverting.

Spirit Evolution[]

These Digivolutions appear in Digimon Frontier, the card game, manga, drama CDs, and video games. They refer exclusively to when a person or a Digimon, uses one or more Spirits to digivolve into a Digimon associated with the Spirit(s).

Spirit Evolution[]


Spirit Evolution (スピリット・エボリューション Supiritto Eboryūshon?) categorizes the use of a Spirit to digivolve. Spirit Evolution results in a Human Hybrid, a humanoid Digimon, or a Beast Hybrid, which produces a Digimon more similar to an animal but not necessarily devoid of humanoid features. In Digimon Frontier, The DigiDestined must release a ring of their own Fractal Code, hold the Digivice and scan it. The Japanese version of Frontier refers to both types of evolution as Spirit Evolution, while in the English version, the call is "Execute! Spirit Evolution!" for Human Spirits and "Execute! Beast Spirit Evolution!" for Beast Spirits. The evolution is represented by the child's clothes disintegrating, then being replaced by the armor pieces of the Spirit. The Beast evolution is very similar, with the child being shrouded in their respective element while combining with the armor, and their Fractal Code taking the shape of a sphere. The children are depicted roaring throughout this process.

Fusion Evolution[]


Fusion Evolution (ダブル・スピリット・エボリューション Daburu Supiritto Eboryūshon?, "Double Spirit Evolution") is the merging of a Human and Beast spirit of the same element to a "Fusion Form" (融合形態 Yuugou Keitai?), a Digimon that has twice the power than what a single Human or Beast spirit can carry. Only two of the DigiDestined, Takuya Kanbara and Koji Minamoto, use Fusion Evolution in Frontier. The appearance of a Fusion Hybrid Digimon can vary, but in the case of Takuya to Aldamon and Koji to BeoWolfmon, they are literally a mixture of features of their respective Human and Beast counterparts. In the English dub, Takuya's call is "Execute, Now! Fusion Evolution!" and Koji's is just "Execute! Fusion Evolution!". This evolution is represented identically to Beast Spirit Evolutions. This is not to be confused with the Fusion Evolution similar to DNA Digivolution.

Unified Spirit Evolution[]


Unified Spirit Evolution (ハイパー・スピリット・エボリューション Haipā Supiritto Eboryūshon?, lit. "Hyper Spirit Evolution") is a form of digivolution.

In Digimon Frontier, Unified Spirit Evolution is where in the person evolving uses ten of the twenty Spirits to evolve to a "Transcendent Form" (超越形態 Chouetsu Keitai?). Takuya Kanbara and Koji Minamoto are the only children to evolve in this way. Takuya uses the Spirits of Flame, Wind, Ice, Earth, and Wood to become EmperorGreymon, and Koji takes the Spirits of Light, Thunder, Darkness, Water, and Steel to digivolve into MagnaGarurumon. The Spirits of the other children are returned to them when EmperorGreymon and MagnaGarurumon revert to Takuya and Koji. In the English dub, their call is "Unity Execute! Unified Spirit Evolution!". This evolution is represented similarly to Beast Spirit Evolutions, but instead of showing the armor pieces of the Spirit combining with the child, the Spirits are instead shown directly fusing with the child while transforming into the child's respective element, and their Fractal Code takes the shape of a sphere orbited by a ring.

In Digimon ReArise, Vritramon uses Unified Spirit Evolution to digivolve to KaiserGreymon. Clash Battle! KaiserGreymon

Ancient Spirit Evolution[]


Ancient Spirit Evolution (エンシェント・スピリット・エボリューション Enshento Supiritto Eboryūshon?) is the most powerful evolution in Digimon Frontier. All of the Legendary Warrior spirits combine at once to form Susanoomon, the most powerful Digimon obtained through a spirit. Susanoomon appears twice in Frontier; first Takuya Kanbara and Koji Minamoto evolve into him Lucemon on the Loose and then in the final battle of the series all the DigiDestined, except Koichi Kimura, combine to form him. End of the Line In the English dub, The first call is "Ancient Spirits Unite!", while the second one is "Execute! Ancient Spirit Evolution!". The two times this evolution is depicted in Digimon Frontier, it is animated differently. The first time, Takuya and Koji's clothes rip from pure power as they are surrounded by their half of the Spirits. They then merge together into the center point between them as the Spirits circle them, forming Susanoomon. The second time, all five of the component DigiDestined perform form fractal code rings similar to their Human Spirit Evolution before pointing their Digivices into the center point of the them, from which Susanoomon emerges. Similar to Biomerge Digivolution, the DigiDestined's consciousnesses are depicted within Susanoomon as naked forms without visible genitalia.


Digifuse demonstration

DigiFuse (デジクロス DejiKurosu?, lit. "DigiXros"[11]) is a form of Digivolution that is central to the plot of Digimon Fusion, Digimon Xros Wars (manga), Digimon Story: Super Xros Wars Blue and Red, Digimon All-Star Rumble and other media.

It is similar to DNA Digivolution in that it involves multiple Digimon, here known as "DigiXros Units" combining into stronger forms, but also involves attributes of Mode Changing, allowing the Units to rearrange their data and become body-parts or weapons for the new form. The gestalt entity is usually controlled by the Unit with the most powerful soul, but especially for Dark DigiFuses, the lead Unit can change if one member's soul overpowers the others.

DigiFuse can be achieved using a Fusion Loader held by its chosen General Mikey Goes To Another World! or Hunter Students have Vanished! The Flickering Shadow of Sagomon and most powerful DigiFuses require the "core" Unit to have the mental fortitude to support the unity of the gestalt. Showdown in Shaky Town! So far, the largest DigiFuses involve seven Units with certain groups such as the Starmons or PawnChessmons, being treated as one Unit. The Darkness Loader, on the other hand allows the Forced DigiFuse (強制デジクロス Kyōsei DejiKurosu?, lit. "Forced DigiXros") The Power Drain: The Hunters of Honey Land, also known as the Dark DigiFuse Disaster in the Dust Zone! where the participants aren't necessarily willing.

There are higher "forms" of DigiFuse, although the distinctions seems to be more in name than in effect. Double Fusion (ダブルクロス Daburu Kurosu?, lit. "Double Xros") is a type of DigiFuse performed between two Generals. Hang on, Greymon! The Rise of Shoutmon DX The Double Fusion can be further empowered through a Grand Xros (グランドクロス Gurando Kurosu?), although this only involves adding more of the current Generals' Digimon. Xros Alliance!! The Final Odaiba Showdown!! When Christopher finally opens his heart to Mikey and Nene, they become able to perform the Great Fusion (グレートクロス Gurēto Kurosu?, lit. "Great Xros"), which involves three or more Generals operating in harmony. Great Fusion! The Power of Friendship With a multitude of Generals, it is possible to form an Evolution Xros (エヴォリューションクロス Evoryūshon Kurosu?) of multiple Warp Digivolved Digimon. Xros Stars!! Like a Shooting Star!! However, the ultimate form of DigiFuse is the Final Fusion (ファイナルクロス Fainaru Kurosu?, lit. "Final Xros"), which is enabled with the help of the Code Crown; it allows Mikey to combine Shoutmon with all of his allies and nearly every Digimon in the Digital World. Final Fusion - The Fight For Earth!

Within the DigiQuartz, a Fusion Loader can only digifuse two of a Hunter's Digimon together. This particular modality is called Xros Up (クロスアップ Kurosu Appu?). Workarounds exist when Hunters cooperate with each other, as two can use Double Fusion to combine up to four Digimon A Targeted Taiki! The Super-Celebrity's Warcry! while four can fuse seven, presumably up to eight, with Great Fusion. Now Revealed! The Secret of the Digimon Hunt!

Items can be used in a DigiFuse, as seen when Tagiru Akashi digifuses Arresterdramon Superior Mode with the remains of the Brave Snatcher to form XrosUpArresterdramon Superior Mode. Burn up Tagiru! A Glorious Digimon Hunt!

Generals can disengage a DigiFuse through Disengage Fuse (クロスオープン Kurosu Ōpun?, lit. "Xros Open") Rumble in the Jungle Zone! also known as a Digi-Defuse Back to the Digital World! Hot Time in Dragonland! and a Forced DigiFuse through Forced Xros Open (強制クロスオープン Kyōsei Kurosu Ōpun?). Xros Miracle!! Reel in a Sliver of Hope!!

In Digimon Story: Super Xros Wars Blue and Red there are also two extra different types of DigiFuse: DigiFusion (デジフュージョン Dejifuyūjon?), which is akin to DNA Digivolution in previous titles where the components permanently fuse into the result, and Jogress Up (ジョグレスアップ Joguresu Appu?).
