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).

The three Tyrannomon chase it around the subway but just they were about to trap their prey in a corner, a subway train drives passed with the Tyrannomon having to get out of the way to avoid being run over. They continue to chase it, with it running into the nearby sewers. As they look for it, one of them is suddenly killed by a surprise attack from the ModokiBetamon. Eiji, who was in the human world, received a notification that one of his three Tyrannomon had been killed and — not wanting to fail the mission since he needed the money — quickly replaces the defeated Tyrannomon with another one. Eiji: Wolf of the Ninth Avenue Chapter 1-1 They are eventually able to capture it, which allows Eiji to complete the request and give it to Tomonori.
