Ranamon is a Fairy Digimon. It possesses power over Water which bears the might of AncientMermaidmon. It has a sharp intuition and an unstable mood probably because it was formed in an area that was mostly active in a section of the ocean within a weather forecasting system. Its emotions are erratic; when it feels good, it shows off how graceful and lady-like it is, but when it gets upset, it cries hysterically like a baby. In battle, it rarely attacks directly, and mainly does so indirectly by manipulating rain. However, since its combat abilities are intense when it is emotionally overwrought, its attacks are especially uncontrollable while it is crying.[7]

Attacks

  • Draining Rain (Rain Stream): Sends a rain cloud which unleashes a stream of water to sap its foes' strength.
  • Dark Vapor (Jealousy Rain): Creates an acidic cloud.
  • Whipping Waves: Manipulates water to attack its foes.

Design

Ranamon is a Naiad-like Digimon with green skin, fins on the sides of it's head that resemble ears, and fins on it's hips. It wears a helm with a long antenna, a one-piece swimsuit, vambraces with a long antennae at the elbows, chaps, blue ring-like anklets, and is barefoot. Its helm, vambraces, and chaps are pale blue with dark blue markings and red jewels while its swimsuit is pale blue with a dark blue trim.

Its Bandai art depicts its red eyes with vertical slit pupils while some media, notably Digimon Frontier, depicts its eyes as solid red. Some media also depicts its eyes as a mix of red, orange, and yellow.
