Matadormon is an Undead Digimon and a carrier of the X Antibody. It is a bloodsucking martial artist Digimon that performs a magnificent dance. It is said that it was born from the folk-dance database of a certain museum, and that it has mastered the unique steps of "Burudoggu" (武舞独繰? lit. "Bulldog"). It uses its fluttering garment to deceive the opponent, and when the opponent drops its guard from a glance at the soft-colored cloth, it falls upon them with the countless rapiers stocked on its arms. Because it is a vampire, it can't survive unless it sucks a Digimon's blood, but as not just anyone will do, it seeks only the blood of strong Digimon and seems to constantly be moving from place to place.

- On August 10, 2021 the Digimon Reference Book added the X-Antibody to Digimon's profiles, re-confirming them as Digimon with the X-Antibody — however they did not include it for this Digimon. Whether this is a mistake, or is Bandai retconning it to no longer having the X-Antibody is unconfirmed. It is stated to be X-Antibody carrier in Digimon Masters and the Digital Monster Card Game.
- This name is a pun, as "Bulldog", pronounced here as "Burudoggu", is read literally as "War-dance of a Single Spin".
- This attack is named "Grand Arrow" in Digimon World Dawn and Dusk and "Thousand Arrows" in Digimon ReArise.
- "Butterfly-breaking" (蝶絶 Chouzetsu?) is a pun on "Transcendent" (超絶 Chouzetsu?).
