Nanimon is an Invader Digimon. It is a Digimon whose true identity is unknown. It arrived in the Digital World from another dimension in order to invade it. It was known by the title "OYAJI" in the other dimension, where it was raised as a digital pet. While it loves alcohol and has an oppressive personality, ever since it invaded this Digital World (though the exact details regarding its invasion are unknown), it digivolved to become more active and turned into Nanimon. It trained and strengthened its body through battle, influenced by the Digital World's survival-of-the-fittest environment; however, no one knows the true extent of its abilities. Even so, it is said that a Nanimon that has fought and won countless battles will digivolve into its ultimate form.[3]

Digimon Adventure[]

DemiDevimon hired a Nanimon to train a Sukamon, Chuumon, some Numemon and some Vegiemon for Myotismon's army. Agumon and Palmon went undercover as PunkAgumon and ReggaePalmon to find a way for the DigiDestined to get into Myotismon's castle. The trainees were aware that Nanimon's head becomes full of bubbles when he drinks pop (in the Japanese version, it was alcohol) so a Numemon sneaked into a tower without him noticing and sent the bottles of pop out the window by parachute. When five of the DigiDestined's Digimon[citation needed] digivolved to their Champion forms, he and his students were scared off before Gatomon summoned the Devidramon to battle them.[citation needed]

A wild Nanimon serves as a drifter who plays hide-and-seek with Mameo. Once certain area tasks are completed in Ancient Dino Region, Drill Tunnel, Factorial Town, Ogremon's Fortress and Toy Town, it appears somewhere in each location. First time finding it unlocks ten more item slots in the inventory and finding it all five times unlocks another ten slots. Once recruited, it appears in the Item Bank and occasionally battles in the Arena.

Nanimon has one of the most unique normal digivolution requirements. Any Rookie must have their happiness and discipline at 0% and Mameo must scold them. Alternatively, the Sunglasses digivolution item can digivolve a Rookie Digimon to Nanimon. Nanimon can digivolve to Digitamamon. If the waste gauge hits maximum, it will digivolve to Sukamon. If it reaches 240 hours of life without digivolving to the Ultimate level, it has a 50% chance of digivolving to Vademon when praised or scolded.
