Snimon is an Insectoid Digimon. Snimon is an experimental Digimon that was created at a research facility as a Virus Hunter. It was created from the data of praying mantises, and it tracks its target down as if it were a precise machine. Due to its unfeeling personality, it is feared by both Vaccine and Data-attribute Digimon. The sickles on both of its arms are honed to their sharpest, becoming possible for it to cleanly slice through anything. Although Snimon is a Digimon that doesn't have any eyes, the red antennae growing from its head have become sensors, and are able to accurately pinpoint the target's location.[1]


  • Twin Sickles (Shadow Sickle): Launches two pink crescent beams from its sickles.
  • Ultimate Twin Sickles: A more powerful version of Twin Sickles with four pink crescent beams.
  • Slamming Attack (たいあたり Tai Atari?, lit. "Body Blow"): Rams his opponents with his whole body.
  • Green Sickle Cut: Cuts the enemy horizontally.
  • Shadow Slash: Slashes with lightning speed.


Its design contains elements from the praying mantis (Tenodera aridifolia).

In an attack on the station, WereGarurumon and Zudomon manage to take out Snimon, while Garudamon gets rid of Tuskmon.
