ModokiBetamon is an Amphibian Digimon. Although it looks identical to Betamon, it is a rare species with a very small population. With its calm personality, it inhabits quiet swampland, and skilfully controls water currents.[1] This yellow-green soldier lies in wait to ambush the enemy with its water pillars.[2]


  • Electric Shock (電光ビリリン Denkou Biririn?, lit. "Lightning Shock"): Generates more than 1 MV of electric current to strike the opponent.
  • Blade Fin: Generates a shock wave from the crest on its head.
  • Aqua Tower: Unleashes a tiny waterspout.
  • Water Gun Knife
  • Fin Blade


ModokiBetamon's design is derived from the Dimetrodon (Dimetrodon grandis).
