PawnChessmon (White) is a Puppet Digimon. It was born from data leaking out of a chess game supercomputer. Its power is weak, but it is promoted when it strives for prominence, and it is an ordinary pawn that conceals the mystery that it is said to possess Mega-class power. Its catchphrase is, "I only advance!" It considers its fellows who are striving for prominence ahead of it to be its rivals,[3] among them PawnChessmon (Black).[4]


  • Pawn Spear[5]: Stabs with its spear.

  • Pawn Charge: Holds a spear and charges the enemy.

Unison Attacks

  • Pyramid Formation: Uses a special formation after procuring rear support from its comrades, allowing it to halt the attacks of even an Ultimate-class Digimon.
  • Storm of Steel (Checkmate Break): Uses a special formation with its comrades and a Knightmon, surrounding them with an aura and then stabbing together at the opponent.


PawnChessmon draws inspiration from the white pawn chess piece, with its general body looking the same as the chess piece. It wields a spear in the left hand and a buckler in the right.
