Sandiramon is a Holy Beast Digimon. It is the "Snake" Deva, and serves the Digimon Sovereign Zhuqiaomon. As a follower of Zhuqiaomon, it is the most cunning and cruel among the Deva. It doesn't like to decide matches in an instant, and prefers to instead choke the life out of the opponent while tormenting them bit by bit. It usually lives deep beneath the ground, and subterranean maneuvers are its specialty. During battle, it can produce a spear made of light, the "Bǎo Kuí" (宝鉾? lit. "Treasure Lance"), from its mouth, and skillfully wield it with its tail wrapped around it like a hand. Although the Bǎo Kuí vanishes once it slashes the opponent, as long as Sandiramon's energy lasts, it can spit out any number of them, and they will not degrade in sharpness.[2]


  • Venom Axe[3] (Krishńa):[4] Impales the opponent by thrashing its body and then powerfully vomiting up a Bǎo Kuí.
  • Bǎo Kuí (宝戣? lit. "Treasure Lance")[5]


Sandiramon is a giant white cobra (Naja naja) Digimon with three horns. It wears purple armor with gold trim on its hood and underbelly with green armor connecting them and bonji on the back of its hood armor.

Digimon Dreamers[]

When Ritsu Kodo, Pulsemon, Bokomon, and Patamon go to the local shrine in the hopes they could find information on why the Cypress Village was cursed they come across a Sandiramon that lived in the shrine who gets annoyed at being woken up. Pulsemon tells Sandiramon to get rid of the village's curse, though it has no idea what Pulsemon is on about and decides it will kill it as punishment for waking it up. Bokomon tries to calm it down by offering it rocks, though Patamon says it wont work as stuck up Digimon can't be reasoned with as they're too childish to be able to contain their anger. Proving Patamon right, this pisses off Sandiramon even more with Ritsu and the Digimon only just able to avoid Sandiramon's Krishńa attack. Finding Sandiramon spitting swords at it disgusting, Pulsemon spits at Sandiramon which shocks the snake Digimon. Insulted at Pulsemon's spit being compared to its sword spitting attacks it summons its "Bǎo Kuí" (宝鉾? lit. "Treasure Lance") spear and tries to kill Pulsemon with it though Pulsemon digivolves its arm to Bulkmon's and blocks it. Confused as to what just happened, Sandiramon can only watch in shock as Pulsemon alternates which parts of its body are digivolved to Bulkmon with Pulsemon able to defeat it. Having lost, Sandiramon tells Pulsemon it has no idea about the curse and it should look elsewhere. Sandiramon goes back to sleep, with Bokomon pulling out some meat. Sandiramon smells the meat, wakes up, and chases the group deciding it wanted to eat the meat. Sandiramon of the Shrine
