Kiwimon is an Ancient Bird Digimon. A mythical, ancient Digimon that was said to have been overhunted to extinction due to the spread of the Internet. Although it is a Bird Digimon, its wings have completely degenerated so it is unable to fly in the air. Furthermore, it possesses the makeup of a Plant-type and is able to perform photosynthesis with the leaf-like things growing on its head, providing itself with nourishment. It has no other ways of defending itself aside from the hard shell that covers its head, and it is easily attacked by intruders due to its docile personality.
- Pummel Peck (Little Pecker): Attacks the enemy using the ChibiKiwimon it conceals within its body. Since the ChibiKiwimon's beaks are extremely hard just like Kiwimon, it is a terrifying technique in which they explode when hit. Despite being completely charred after exploding, the ChibiKiwimon return safely.
- High Jumping Kick (Nose Mattock)
- Blast Shot: Sends ballistic waves and attacks.
Kiwimon is derived from both the kiwi (Apteryx australis) and the kiwifruit. Like the bird, it is a wingless, flightless avian with a brown, furry body. It also has leaves around its neck, referencing the plant and fruit. It wears a large mask that covers its face, which is fitted with a long beak like that of the bird.
