Drimogemon is an Animal Digimon. It moves underground at high speeds with the gigantic drill attached to its snout. It is an extremely rare Digimon to come across because it is always digging deep underground. Although it has a meek, shy personality, it is fairly mischievous, and sometimes it takes the favorite bones that Garurumon[6] and BlackGarurumon[7] have buried underground and hides them in different locations.[6] If it were to have been discovered later than NiseDrimogemon, it could have ended up being called "Nise" (? lit. "Imitation").[8]


  • Drill Spin[9]: Attacks the enemy with its gigantic drill.
  • Bone Crusher (Crusher Bone): Throws the bone it stole from Garurumon.
  • Screw Claw
  • Mole's Claw


Drimogemon is a mole with a drill-like nose and a drawn mustache on its muzzle.

Digimon Data Squad[]

A Drimogemon was spotted by Spencer Damon and his team during their expedition into the Digital World to search for Keenan Crier.

Ten years later, a small Drimogemon appeared in the Human World as the result of robbers hacking a bank's security system. While good-willed, he was also naïve and easily manipulated into assisting the criminals in stealing money, up until they were tracked down by the DATS team. Due to the negative emotions of the two robbers, Drimogemon grew larger and attacked the DATS team. However, the conflicting tactics of Marcus Damon and Thomas H. Norstein, which caused the attacks of their Digimon partners to cancel each other out, gave Drimogemon time to escape back into the Digital World. Marcus and Thomas, feeling guilty about messing up, decide to pursue Drimogemon at his home advantage so that they would stop Drimogemon. However in the Digital World, both of them fell into a trap by Drimogemon and were captured in a large underground labyrinth which was the Digimon's home. However thanks to the actions of Marcus, they both escaped by riding on Drimogemon's back and lured him into a colosseum, where Drimogemon couldn't dig into the ground. When he was confronted by the two boys and their Digimon, Drimogemon digivolved to a large Digmon, and was subsequently destroyed.

Later, Drimogemon would "reappear", in a nightmare forced onto Marcus by MetalPhantomon. Drimogemon carried the illusionary form of Marcus' sister Kristy Damon away, while Marcus was helpless to save her, due to being held back by rapidly multiplying Numemon.
