In the past, Ophanimon was one of the seven leaders of the Army of Light that fought against the Army of Darkness. The only survivors were six Digi-Eggs, implied to belong to Phoenixmon, MetalGarurumon, HerculesKabuterimon, WarGreymon, Rosemon, and Vikemon. After Phoenixmon, Rosemon, Vikemon and HerculesKabuterimon were destroyed, Seraphimon and Ophanimon made WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon DNA Digivolve into Omnimon empowered with the souls of the fallen warriors so he could defeat ZeedMillenniummon, the ultimate weapon of the Dark Digimon. Unlike Seraphimon, Ophanimon did not survive the injuries that she had sustained in the battle and she died and was reborn as a Digi-Egg that the Vademon got their hands on and corrupted.

After the previous war against the Army of Darkness, Ophanimon had turned into a Digi-Egg, which was discovered and corrupted by the Vademon. The egg had then hatched and eventually became SkullKnightmon, who first served under Devimon in the Cloud Continent.
SkullKnightmon was sent along with Velgemon to ensure that Minotarumon, Bullmon, Bulbmon and the Troopmon would manage to deliver captured T.K. Takaishi to Devimon. After Minotarumon's forces were destroyed and Angemon had sacrificed his powers to ensure Velgemon's death, SkullKnightmon took Angemon's Digi-Egg in order to deliver it to Devimon and be corrupted. SkullKnightmon personally fought Tai Kamiya, Matt Ishida and T.K. when they arrived into Devimon's castle to take back Angemon's Digi-Egg. SkullKnightmon was overpowered by MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon, so it asked Devimon for more power. Devimon then used the Dark Crystal containing Moon=Millenniummon's spirit to digivolve SkullKnightmon into AxeKnightmon.
After the destruction of Devimon's Mega form DanDevimon and the DigiDestined's arrival to the Eternal Continent, AxeKnightmon was forced to degenerate back into SkullKnightmon in the battle against Angemon. SkullKnightmon soon found Tai, Agumon and Kari Kamiya, and captured Kari. Under the instructions of the Vademon, SkullKnightmon took Kari to a ritual altar full larger Dark Crystals. SkullKnightmon was instructed to resonate with Kari and imprison her within its own armor to digivolve into AxeKnightmon once again and then sacrifice them both for resurrecting Millenniummon.
As the DigiDestined send WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon the power to DNA digivolve into Omnimon, a shadowy image of SkullKnightmon appears over Ophanimon along with DanDevimon appearing over Seraphimon to rescue their respective counterparts from Abbadomon. Devimon declares that he hears the voices resonating beyond the world and gathering hope, declaring that despite the destruction in sight, the light of hope glows bright, creating a miracle. Devimon declares that the whim of those who are shadows must also be the same before he and SkullKnightmon fade away.
In the Digivice: virtual pet, SkullKnightmon is defeated by the DigiDestined's Partner Digimon.

AxeKnightmon is Gatomon's corrupted Ultimate form, and is the digivolved form of SkullKnightmon. When it was decided that Gatomon would be transformed into a Dark Digimon, the development team decided to use AxeKnightmon because the Digimon Xros Figure Series: SkullKnightmon & DeadlyAxemon Set came with a Gatomon DigiMemory.
While in the effort to stop Tai Kamiya, Matt Ishida, and T.K. Takaishi to grab back Angemon's Digi-Egg, SkullKnightmon was cornered by MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon. SkullKnightmon asked for more power, so Devimon used the Dark Crystal containing Moon=Millenniummon's spirit to digivolve SkullKnightmon into AxeKnightmon. AxeKnightmon survived the battle and the destruction of Devimon's castle. After the destruction of Devimon's Ultimate form NeoDevimon, AxeKnightmon retrieves the Dark Crystal and uses Moon=Millenniummon's power to digivolve NeoDevimon into DanDevimon.
After DanDevimon's destruction and the DigiDestined's arrival to the Eternal Continent, AxeKnightmon attacked the DigiDestined in order to captue Kari Kamiya, but was stopped by Angemon and forced to degenrate back into SkullKnightmon.
SkullKnightmon digivolved into AxeKnightmon once again after capturing Kari and resonating with her as part of the ritual to sacrifice themselves for Millenniummon's resurrection. The Dark Crystals of the ritual altar mad AxeKnightmon grow even larger and it also used its Undead Soldier technique to send several Vilemon spirits to attack the other DigiDestined. After growing large enough, AxeKnightmon's armor started to dissipate and its data to be sent to FAGA, a large Dark Crystal in the Sealed Grounds, where most of Millenniummon's essence resided. But Kari managed to find Gatomon's own spirit inside AxeKnightmon's armor and Tai and WarGreymon saved them before destroying AxeKnightmon. AxeKnightmon's destruction allowed Gatomon to regain her physical body.
After being exposed to the dark miasma while fighting MarineDevimon, Gatomon becomes surrounded by the shadow of AxeKnightmon, causing her to attack Greymon. However, Kari is able to break through to her partner, causing the miasma to disappear and Gatomon to digivolve into Angewomon instead.
In the Digivice: virtual pet, AxeKnightmon is defeated by the DigiDestined's Partner Digimon.
