Digimon ReArise

When Sara was young, she spent a lot of time in the hospital and and very rarely left the bed and would try her best to pretend the pain and testing was normal however every time she bottled up her feelings and wanted to cry, the darkness in her heart grew and she eventually began to fear the World. One day, Tapirmon suddenly appeared before her and the two became friends – Tapirmon's friendship bringing color to Sara's dark world, as well as causing her to no longer feel the pain and sadness, and Tapirmon would eat any bad dreams she would have.

Many later later, when Michi Shinjo and Salamon are running late for their shopping trip with Mayu Kohinata, Kudamon, the Protagonist, Herissmon, Mon, and Hackmon Michi accidentally runs into Sara due to barely paying attention to what was in front of her. Michi panics about where her smartphone had landed though Sara passes it to her as it had landed next to her. As Salamon reminds Michi once again that they're late Michi hurriedly leaves after thanking Sara, both Michi and Salamon oblivious to the fact that Sara had not displayed shock to the fact that Salamon existed. Tapirmon points out that Michi was a Tamer, wondering if that was a good thing, though Sara doesn't mind as all she cared about was the fact she had Tapirmon.

Later, when a Digital Point opens up in the shopping Mall the Spiral drag in a group of Kuwagamon and Okuwamon from the Digital World. The Protagonist, Filmon, Michi, and Gatomon lose track of the Insectoid Digimon and eventually find Tapirmon fighting a Kuwagamon. Sara has Tapirmon digivolve to Monochromon to defeat the Kuwagamon, to the shock of the onlooking Tamers and Digimon, after which it reverts back to Tapirmon. After introducing themselves they ask Sara to help them defeat the rest of the Insectoid Digimon however Sara refuses as she had other plans and leaves with Tapirmon. A God Beast Digimon?! A Path for Mayu to Follow

Later, Sara and Tapirmon arrive just as the Protagonist, Filmon, Michi, and Gatomon clear out a Digital Point leaving Sara disappointed as there were no Spiral left for her to fight. A few days later, when Michi is fighting in a Digital Point on her own, Sara and Monochromon help Michi and Gatomon clear it out. Michi talks Tapirmon into going around the City to find out the source of the rumour behind an Angel's shadow though all they find are more and more Digital Points to clear out. A day later, Sara finds Michi clearing out Digital Points on her own and helps Michi clear it, then helps her to find the source of the rumour. She, Michi, and Mon are able to stop Ophanimon and Caturamon's plan, gaining the Humans another Deva ally. Chasing the Shadow of an Angel! Joining Forces with Sara!

When Michi and Sara get stuck in a Digital Point in the library, they are attacked by SkullSatamon. Sara is frozen in fear, though snaps out of it upon remembering when Tapirmon said it will always be with her. Megadramon and Angewomon defeat SkullSatamon, however it surprise attacks them once again after their partners de-digivolve to Rookie. This pisses off Sara, which causes Tapirmon to warp digivolve to Machinedramon and finish off SkullSatamon once and for all. This shocks Michi and Salamon, who were unaware that Tapirmon was actually Machinedramon. Invasion of Darkness! Two Tamers Lost in the Dark After the battle, Leopardmon of the Royal Knights arrives and fights and defeats Machinedramon, then reveals that Sara is behind all the problems in the Digital World. Sara confirms this, summons a large group of Spiral to cause a distraction, has Tapirmon once again digivolve to Machinedramon, and attacks Leopardmon. Gaiomon arrives and joins Machinedramon but just as the two of them are about to defeat the Royal Knight, Jesmon suddenly arrives and blocks their attacks. Sara and Takumi realise they wouldn't be able to take out two Royal Knights and escape through a gate to the Dark Area. Advent of the Holy Knight! Mark of the Blade

Having used a lot of her collected Spiral to escape, Sara and Tapirmon travel through Digital Points to replenish her stock by capturing them within an app on her smartphone. After collecting a large amount they hear a scream and travel to the source, where they see Matadormon draining a woman of her blood though Matadormon leaves, stating the time was not yet right for them to meet. The scream also caught the attention of Michi and Salamon though Sara flees on the back of Megadramon to avoid having to talk to her. She later meets up with Takumi and tells him about Matadormon.

Sara and Tapirmon continue to collect Spirals, this time as Megadramon. Michi and Angewomon confront them about the many Humans falling into comas, as she thought Sara was behind it, though Sara states she isn't. When Sara realises how much time Michi had spent searching for her instead of studying she decides she cannot be friends with her any more, as she didn't want to get in the way of her studies, and has Megadramon digivolve to Machinedramon. Deciding that she is sick of Michi getting in her way she decides to murder Michi though Angewomon defends her partner. As Sara mocks Angewomon for being weak Angewomon suddenly becomes stronger and defeats Machinedramon, having unknowingly taken in dark energy from GranDracmon who was watching the fight and wanted Michi to win. Angewomon readies an attack to kill Machinedramon and though Michi tries to call it off, GranDracmon projects its thoughts into Michi's head and nearly convinces her to fall into the darkness of resentment and hatred. Michi is able to snap out of it however and calls off the attack, to the annoyance of GranDracmon. It ReArises in front of the two Tamers and once again asks Michi to join its collection, though she once again refuses. As it had already once nearly caused her to fall into the darkness, GranDracmon uses its "Eye of the Gorgon" on her and is this time able to cause her to succumb to it. Michi has Angewomon continue to attack Machinedramon until it de-digivolves to Tapirmon and falls unconscious, after which the trio leave – with Michi and Angewomon now GranDracmon's minions. Darkness Invades! The Dancing Vampire

Having ran away from the other Tamers, Sara and Tapirmon hide out at the library. A Digital point suddenly opens up, only to close itself seconds later and Tapirmon senses that the Digital Point had brought something dark. When they leave the library they see Michi and Angewomon trying to destroy the town, and so Tapirmon warp digivolves to Megadramon in an attempt to stop them – only for Megadramon to be easily defeated. Sara summons a large group of Spiral, creating a Digital Point, which causes the Protagonist and Rasenmon to find the group. As Angewomon fights Rasenmon, SaviorHuckmon and Mon arrive which causes GranDracmon to have Michi and Angewomon retreat. Most of the group follow them to the Dark Area and with everyone gone, Megadramon reverts to Tapirmon. Sara, confused as to why she even tried to protect the Town in the first place since she only cares about Tapirmon decides she wants to stop Angewomon, upset she had done nothing to prevent Michi's brainwashing. Though scared of the Dark Area, Sara decides to travel there to try and help Michi. She eventually finds the duo fighting Rasenmon and Grizzlymon and has Tapirmon warp digivolve to Machinedramon and surprise attack Angewomon. Machinedramon takes over the battle, allowing Rasenmon and Grizzlymon to reach GranDracmon. As Machinedramon and Angewomon fight, Machinedramon suddenly reverts back to Tapirmon, stating they had bought enough time. Sara puts her plan into action, grabs Michi's hand, and is able to talk her out of the brainwashing by telling her about how much she cares about her. Tapirmon warp digivolves to Machinedramon again, joining LovelyAngemon to attack GranDracmon. GranDracmon attempts to freeze then all for all eternity again, with the three Megas fighting back. As they launch a combined attack, GranDracmon finds LovelyAngemon's light beautiful after which the group suddenly teleport out of the Dark Area and wake up in the real World, the Digimon all back in their Rookie forms. Confused as to what happened, the group theorize that GranDracmon killed itself by running into the light and celebrate their assumed victory. Sara then informs the group she had returned the favor of Michi helping her before, with the group enemies once again. Illuminating Light A Guide to the Rainbow

When Sara and Takumi are discussing their plan to ambush the summit between the Royal Knights, Three Archangels, and Four Holy Beasts they are attacked by a group of Spiral, leading Tapirmon to warp digivolve to Machinedramon to defeat them alongside Gaiomon, which also allows Sara to add to her collect of Spiral. As the summit was on break, with each group split up during said break by the time Sara and Takumi show up, they are only able to find the Archangels. Machinedramon and Gaiomon attack them though during the fight the Protagonist, Rasenmon, Michi, and LovelyAngemon arrive, confused as to why they were fighting. The Tamers join the fight to stop them, though Sara summons a group of Spiral which are able to stall the group long enough for Sara and Takumi to complete their goal, after which they flee through a portal. A Digimon Summit Begins?

Takumi, after refusing to continue listening to the orders of he and Sara's boss, Eiji Futami, returns to the side of the Tamers leaving Sara to continue Eiji's plan on her own. To Wield a Blade for Justice

Now having everything they need, Eiji and Sara prepare for the final step to invade the Kernel, though Eiji also sets up a Digital Point in the location first and has Spiral pretend to be him and Sara by manually hacking their appearence and then using an app to play their voices out of the fakes to trick the others. Just as the fake versions pretend to start the plan, Leopardmon and Jesmon show up and attack them. As they had to go to an exact location to be able to infitrate the Kernel, it made finding them easy. Eiji had thought the Royal Knights would be busy but they had outsmarted him as they had lied to him about what they'd be doing as Jesmon had suspected Eiji from the start. The fake Eiji summons a large group of fellow Spiral and though they are able to paralyse the two Knights, they had not come alone. Kentaurosmon ambushes them from the sky and kills them, however this reveals to the trio that they were not the real deal and instead, their deaths triggers the hidden Digital Point – sucking the three of them into it as Eiji and Sara laugh at them, watching from afar. They then succesfully complete their plan and open a gateway Kernel however the Three Archangels were onto them and before they can go inside it, Cherubimon comes out of it and attacks them. Eiji summons Spiral, whilst Cherubimon summons many Angel Digimon and using a program they had created to nuetralize Eiji's Spiral (having analyzed the program when it was used against them in the past) it is able to delete Eiji's Spiral. Still having loads left, he summons more of them and has Sara digivolve Tapirmon to Machinedramon in the hopes that they can defeat Cherubimon in a battle of attrition. Cherubimon easily deals with them despite the numbers however Eiji uses his hacks and disguises the Spiral as Angel Digimon and Machinedramon which is enough to throw Cherubimon off with the Spiral and Machinedramon being able to team up and defeat Cherubimon. As they prepare the killing blow; LovelyAngemon, Mitamamon, and their partners arrive – having noticed the gateway from afar due to how bright it was. Though confused at the fact Eiji was evil, they defeat the Spiral and save Cherubimon, though in defeating the Spiral, they are effected by their palarysis ability. This doesn't last long however, as Gaiomon Fierce Blade Mode also shows up and is able to remove the palarysis and is followed shortly after by Rasenmon, HeavyLeomon, and Grizzlymon. The group fail to stop Eiji however as he is able to have Machinedramon and the Spiral stall them long enough to be able to run through the gateway. Unfortunately for Eiji, the gateway remained open due to Cherubimon using its remaining power with the Tamers being able to get Rasenmon, Jesmon (who was able to escape the prevous Digital Point), and their Tamers through the gateway as well before Cherubimon passed out.
