  • Spirit Crash: Absorbs some of the enemies SP.
  • Data is Converging!: Lowers its INT and increases its ATK.

Eaters in their Purebeed Mode are the default depiction of Eaters. They are essentially the base form before they absorb any additional data. They do nothing but consume anything they come across, drawn by high concentrations of data. They can also be found in the Real World at the core of Digital Shifts and must be defeated before reality returns to normal.
