Piedmon is a Wizard Digimon. It is a strange-looking and elusive Digimon that is completely shrouded in mystery. Demon Man Digimon have many mysterious qualities, and since Demon- and Undead-species are basically beings from another dimension, their true identities are totally misunderstood. It is unclear why Piedmon appeared and what the purpose of its existence is, and there are currently no means of clarifying these questions. However, since its strength is without equal, if you happen to stumble across Piedmon, you probably won't be able to do anything but curse your fate. It has four swords pierced through the "Magic Box" on its back.
- Trump Sword: Teleports its four swords, causing them to skewer the opponent in the following instant.
- Clown Trick: Does various magical effects including transformations, disguises, or reflecting an opponent's attack back.
- Masks Square: Creates a field in which all communications can be read by it and allows it to teleport itself and its attacks anywhere at will.
- Trump Sword (Toy Wonderness): Creates a gust of wind.
- Ending Snipe: Unleashes electricity from both hands and electrocutes opponents.
Piedmon is a humanoid Digimon designed after the Pierrot and other entertainers of the jester archetype, with additional influences from the mythological Paimon. It wears a flamboyant, multi-colored outfit as well as a mask hiding most of its facial features, blue ribbons on it's outfit and a ruff around his neck. It has four swords on the "Magic Box on it's back, the pommels of which are designed after the four traditional suits for playing cards: "Clubs", "Diamonds", "Hearts", and "Spades".

Digimon World Re:Digitize: Decode
Digimon World: Next Order
Piedmon is a Dark Virus type, Mega level Digimon. It digivolves from LadyDevimon and Doumon and can DNA digivolve to Boltboutamon with Myotismon. Mega level Digimon can't poop but if the Piedmon in the City's experiment maxes the poop gauge, it will digivolve into PlatinumSukamon or Sukamon.
Piedmon is found in the Bony Resort and asks to play hide and seek with the Hero. He will hide and tell the tamer to find him five times before morning, or they lose. Time will move forward to night time if it is still day time. If not found all five times, the tamer can try again the next day. If found all five times, he will join the city. Piedmon joins the arcade and will do experiments on the tamer's Digimon that will have a random effect, such as lowering their hunger stat, or increasing/decreasing a random stat. The most infamous however, is when he states he "reversed the discipline gauge" only for him to be lying. Instead, he maxed out the Digimon's poop gauges which causes them both to digivolve into Sukamon or PlatinumSukamon depending on the partner Digimon's levels. This can even work on Mega and Ultra level Digimon, who aren't able to poop. Piedmon breaks the fourth wall and speaks directly to the player playing the game and says that he hopes they saved before talking to him and that he knows they're going to reload if they're not happy with what he did to their partners. He later attempts to help the tamer, alongside Myotismon to deal with the evil sensed in Bony Resort, only to be forced to DNA Digivolve into Boltboutamon with Myotismon. Boltboutamon then summons multiple clones of Piedmon and Myotismon that have to be defeated before they can defeat BoltBoutamon himself. Once BoltBoutamon is defeated, Piedmon and Myotismon return to normal, though they later willingly fight against the tamer in a rematch as Boltboutamon, though this time even more powerful than before.
