Gaomon first appears in episode two of Digimon Data Squad. He and his partner Thomas had arrived in Japan as a bunch of DemiMeramon were being found in the country. Gaomon is a very calm and quiet; in his first appearance in the Japanese version, his only dialogue consisted of answering "Yes master!" or "Sir yes sir" (in English) to Thomas's orders.[2] He was given more dialogue in later episodes. As seen in "The Norstein Family Secret" and "A Birthday Kristy Will Never Forget", he is shown to blush in the presence of little girls that remark on how cute he looks.
