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.
  • Puppet Pummel (Flying Cross Cutter): Throws the wooden cross on its back like a sharp boomerang.
  • Lie (うそ Uso?): Tells multiple lies to make its nose grow and hit the opponent with it.
  • Drill Nose: Spins its metallic nose like a drill.
  • Clean Sweep (Clean Up)
  • Big Liar (Bigger Lier)
  • Big Dutch Doll
