"RookChessmon + Deputymon"

RookChessmon (Black) is a Puppet Digimon. It has an appearance like a fortress which boasts impregnable defense. Although it's a gigantic Digimon, it is very fast, and it defends against the opponent's strikes, then attacks. Its catchphrase is, "The opponent is nothing after me!"[4]


  • Stronghold: Charges the opponent as it stands at attention, mowing them down and destroying them.
  • Rook Gatling: Fires from the gunports on its arms.
  • Castle Wall: Uses a stubborn, immovable, steadfast defense.


RookChessmon is based on a Black Rook chess piece that's now the size of a Megazord.


RookChessmon (ルークチェスモン)

Official romanization given by the Digimon Reference Book and used in the franchise. Some media differentiate it from its white variation by labeling this one "Black" (クロ Kuro?)[5] or "(Black)" ((黒) (Kuro)?).[6]
