Motimon is a Lesser Digimon. It possesses elastic skin, and is a soft-bodied Digimon that uses the protuberances on the underside of its body to toddle about. It came to be called "Motimon" from inflating its body when it gets worked up, causing it to look like mochi. However, as a result of possessing a height of intelligence that couldn't even be imagined from its appearance, its origin is conjectured to derive from a computer's dictionary feature. It understands human languages, and it is sometimes seen freely deforming its body like it's trying to return communications.

A Motimon and Wanyamon find themselves in a Digital Point and are attacked by a group of Frigimon-type Spiral. Herissmon attacks the Spiral to save them, however it had lost control of its rage and harms the In-Training Digimon as well, which causes them to fear the Protagonist, Herissmon, Kudamon, and Mayu Kohinata. Mayu reassures them that Herissmon didn't mean to harm them, and the two Digimon befriend the group, after which Chirinmon and Stefilmon defeat the rest of the Spiral and put an end to the Digital Point.
When a Motimon and Tokomon run around due to being bored, Jijimon tries to calm them down by telling them if they continue to misbehave, a Demon Lord would kidnap them. The two In-Training Digimon don't believe him, since they have never seen a Demon Lord Digimon before, so Jijimon tells them the story about how Lucemon terrorised the Digital World in the past though the two Digimon fall asleep before Jijimon can finish telling the Story.
