Digmon is an Insectoid Digimon. It armor-digivolved due to the "Digi-Egg of Knowledge". The "Digi-Egg of Knowledge" has the attribute of "Earth", and those that don this Digi-Egg wield the power to manipulate the earth. As can be seen from its unique form, it never loses to any Digimon in underground battles.[7]
