Gotsumon is a Rock Digimon. It is a Digimon with powerful defensive abilities, having armored itself using ore data from its surroundings. Spunky, mischievous, and ambitious as any young tough guy, it leads around groups of low-generation Digimon as it travels the system. It also has a selfish side, and can be a real handful when angered, rampaging like an erupting volcano. Depending on where and how it forms, the ore data it uses for armor may appear different, and it has the potential to Digivolve into a number of different forms. [8]


  • Rock Fist[9] (Angry Rock): shoots extremely hard ore from its head.
  • Wild Strike[10] (あばれんぼう Abarenbou?, lit. "Hooligan"): Swings its arms wildly while moving towards the enemy.
  • Hardest Punch: Throws a very powerful punch.
  • Earth Shaker: A pillar made of rock emerges from the ground.


Gotsumon is a humanoid Digimon with a body made of gray rocks. It has yellow eyes and two rocks on its head that resemble bear ears. It has three fingers on each hand and three toes on each foot.

One of them is able to find Takuma Momozuka and Koromon, and easily defeats the weaker Digimon. Takuma, not wanting his new friend to get hurt, refuses to leave Koromon behind and his resolve in wanting to protect his friend causes Koromon to digivolve to Agumon. Agumon then defeats the Gotsumon. Two other Gotsumon are able to find Minoru Hinata and Aoi Shibuya, though they are defeated by Agumon, Falcomon, and Labramon.

He is able to escape due the help of a trio of Gomamon, though the wounds they inflict to him nearly cause his death. The Gotsumon are able to track the Gomamon down and attack them with the help of a group of Gazimon — though Takuma and his friends arrive and defeat them.
