Puppetmon is a Puppet Digimon. It was built from the body of a cursed Cherrymon, and it is thought that it was probably constructed from Cherrymon's data by a single fiendish hacker. It has an appearance like a marionette, but it can move under its own volition. Its personality is detestable, as it tells fibs, and when a computer presents false information, it is the work of Puppetmon.[3]


  • Puppet Pummel (Bullet Hammer): Packs gunpowder into its revolver-style hammer, then strikes with its strongest technique. This attack will cause the opponent to vanish without a trace, not just from the hammer's blow but also from the explosion of the gunpowder.

  • Lie (うそ Uso?): Tells multiple lies to make its nose grow and hit the opponent with it.

This happens in the moral route.

As a result of turning on Piedmon, Garurumon is attacked by Piedmon's minions. He is able to escape, and when the humans are taking pictures together at the school to remember their time together, Garurumon walks in covered in wounds. As Akiharu worries about him, Garurumon tells them to flee as Piedmon's minions were chasing him. The group try and convince Garurumon to escape with them, though multiple Puppetmon arrive as their conversation ended up being too long. The Puppetmon are excited they get to kill more than just Garurumon and refuse to believe Garurumon when he says it was Master who killed Piedmon not the kids. The Puppetmon ask Garurumon to re-join them and kill the kids, though he refuses and evolves to WereGarurumon. He struggles in the battle, which leads Akiharu "Haru" Minase to stand in the way of him to take the blow instead. As Akiharu tells him how much he cares about him and that he wants them to be friends again, WereGarurumon finally accepts him as he realizes he was the same Akiharu he always was. He realizes that Akiharu had never abandoned him and his renewed bond with him causes him to evolve to MetalGarurumon with MetalGarurumon happy that he finally was strong enough to protect his partner. They defeat the Puppetmon, who proceed to retreat.

When the humans go to the shrine to fight Master, they realize they can't get in and Renamon mentions he always just followed Master's minions when they used a magatama to get in. The group come to the conclusion they need to track down his minions to get it and end up finding them easily since they were near the shrine. A Puppetmon summons some Kenzoku, though he and the Kenzoku are defeated easily due to Puppetmon's previous wounds. Rather than kill them, Renamon offers Puppetmon a deal for him to give them the magatama and if he does, they'll let them live. Puppetmon tells them he doesn't have it though, with the children still allowing him to live. They find another Puppetmon, though end up fighting it since Minoru was unable to convince it to just hand it over. They defeat this Puppetmon and his minions, and are able to retrieve the magatama.

Puppetmon evolves from Lillymon and Deramon. If Takuma Momozuka is able to befriend a Puppetmon and asks it for an item, it will give him an Anti-Sleep Crystal.
