Dokugumon is an Insectoid Digimon. It is a cursed Digimon in the shape of a spider, whose entire body has been parasitised by a computer virus. While it was originally a spider-type, it had a docile personality typical of insect-type Digimon; however, at some point, it was drawn into a powerful electromagnetic storm and infected by a computer virus that had been circulating around the Network. Since then, it has become but a lump of poison, or, in other words, a computer virus, that corrodes anything it touches. Not only that, special mention has to be given to its great movement speed, made possible thanks to its eight legs. No matter how desperately one tries to get away, Dokugumon will never be far behind, and it will not stop its chase until the opponent ceases to continue running out of exhaustion.[5] They are presided over by their queen, Arukenimon.[6]

A bunch of Dokugumon work for MetalPhantomon. They use their web powers to trap the DATS members in their threads so that MetalPhantomon can induce nightmares into them. Most are destroyed by GeoGreymon and Sunflowmon, and some are killed by MetalPhantomon during his battle with MachGaogamon.

Digimon Adventure:

A swarm of Dokugumon, under the control of a Soundbirdmon, attack Tai Kamiya and Sora Takenouchi, trapping them with a giant web and encircling the ruins where Varodurumon's last feather resides. Their behavior confuses Biyomon as she has never heard of Dokugumon hunting in such a way before, causing Tai and Sora to realize that the enemy that they were just warned about by Varodurumon has noticed them and taken action. Agumon tries to break through the web, but the Soundbirdmon vibrates the web, preventing his attacks from working on it. While Agumon stops the Dokugumon's attacks, Biyomon digivolves into Birdramon and breaks through the giant web. Once they're free, Agumon digivolves to Greymon and destroys all of the encircling Dokugumon with his Mega Flame. The Holy Digimon
