KingChessmon is a Puppet Digimon. It is a king Digimon maneuvering behind the scenes in order to build the great Chessmon empire. However, nobody knows what kind of thing a Chessmon empire is, and because of the environs, they aren't even interested. Since it is a coward, it almost never attacks by itself, and it's only fast when it comes to running away in an emergency. Its catchphrase is, "He that fights and runs away may live to fight another day!" However, it also has an intellect that is surprisingly on the same level as a supercomputer. It always carries the "King Stick".[3]


  • Checkmate: Attacks by itself as a last resort. If its own life is at stake, this technique possesses superior offensive power.
  • King Stick: Produces a body double of itself using the King Stick.
  • King Dash: Quickly runs away.


KingChessmon has the appearance of a PawnChessmon (White), but it has a mustache on its face and wears a cape on its back, a crown on its head and a medal on its chest. Also it wields a scepter in combat.
