• 팬텀몬 Fantomon

Phantomon is a Ghost Digimon. A Reaper-like Digimon holding a gigantic sickle and chain. It is a higher class of Ghost Digimon compared to Bakemon, so when a person is possessed by Phantomon they are in their last moments, and it comes upon them when they die completely. There is a crystal shaped like an eyeball hanging from its neck, and similar to Mammothmon's crest, it is able to foresee everything with its power of clairvoyance, in order to perceive those that are close to death. It is said that the interior of the cloth which conceals its body leads to a separate dimension from the Digital World.[5]


  • Shadow Scythe[6] (Soul Chopper): Cuts even the opponent's soul to pieces with its gigantic sickle and chain, completely annihilating the soul.
  • Words of Death[7] (死の宣告 Shi no Senkoku?, lit "Death Sentence"): Kills an opponent instantly with a word of death.
  • Diabolic Star[8]: Calls dark energy into the weighted chain end of its sickle and chain and slams an opponent with it.


Phantomon is a levitating Phantom that wears a red hooded cape to conceal its face and is covered in a grey cloth that hides its true form. It wields a scythe-like sickle and chain which coupled with the hood makes it resemble the mythological Grim Reaper. Its hood has a skull and hazard symbol on it and it wears a chain necklace with a crystal shaped like an eyeball attached to it. The DigiCode on its cape are randomly arranged, and read DC deDC jiDC taDC ruDC moDC nDC suDC taDC chouon (デジタルモンスター Dejitaru Monsutā?, lit. "Digital Monster").
