Ghoulmon (Black) is a Demon Lord Digimon. Like Daemon it was originally a high-ranking Angel Digimon, but it fell to the Dark Area and is now one of the Demon Lord Digimon. Even though it is a Demon Lord Digimon, it is different from other Fallen Angel and Devil Digimon in that it does not run the whole gamut of wickedness, but instead does its utmost to carefully maintain a position of neutrality. However, it is a terrifying Digimon, and it is told that at the time of the approaching final battle, that whitened appearance will change to jet-black darkness, and it will transform into a god of destruction.[2]


  • Death Arrow[3]: Fires arrows of death from the evil eyes on its hands.
  • Explosion Eye: Fires a laser beam from its central eye when it shines deep crimson.
  • Black Claw: Attack with its claws.
  • Death Wave: Confuses the enemy with a strange radio wave.


Compared to its whitened counterpart in Ghoulmon, Ghoulmon (Black) is jet-black. Its multitude of eyes and association with death may be a reference to the mythological Samael.
