Kyukimon is a Mysterious Beast Digimon. It is a Digimon with an appearance resembling the "Kamaitachi", a legendary yōkai. The hairs that cover it from head to toe indiscriminately tear anything in their surroundings to pieces with their sharp edges, so it is definitely a deadly weapon-like bladed beast. Its speed is fast, and it tears the whole body to pieces while raising a whirlwind.[2]


  • Blade Twister[3]: Creates a tornado around the enemy, and minces them with a vacuum blade.
  • Sanrensei (三連星?)[4]: Shoots diamond-shaped seals from its brow.


Its design incorporates elements from the mythological kamaitachi.

Kotemon can digivolve to Kyukimon at level 20. Kyukimon can also appear after Kotemon Blast Digivolves under level 19. For the other Rookie Digimon, Dinohyumon must reach level 50. If Kyukimon reaches level 99 for the Rookie Digimon other than Kotemon, it will unlock GuardiAngemon.

Kyukimon unlocks MetalMamemon for Kotemon at level 20 with 140 Machine Tolerance, Growlmon for Monmon at level 20 with 320 Speed, and Hookmon for Renamon at level 20.

If Kotemon is not chosen as a partner Digimon, Kyukimon is found in the Suzaku Underground Lake and gives its DDNA energy, which once given to the DRI Agent in Mobius Desert gives Kotemon as a partner Digimon.
