The Dramon-type (ドラモン系/ドラモンタイプ Doramon-kei/Doramon-taipu?)[1] is a group of Digimon with "-dramon" in their names which is derived from "dragon" and as such most possess draconic features and traits. They are descendants of Dracomon, an ancient, pure-blooded Dragon Digimon.[2] To be worthy of the name "Dramon", a Digimon typically needs to possess some Dragon data in their DigiCores.[3] The Dragon Man Digimon WarGreymon—as well as its darker derivatives BlackWarGreymon and ChaosBlackWarGreymon—wears special "Dramon Destroyer" (Dramon Killer) gauntlets on its arms which are deadly to Dramon Digimon, though they put itself at risk as well.[4]
