Spiral-4004Y and Spiral-3003N
Spiral are Digital Lifeforms that mimic Digimon.
Spirals are tiny fragments of data directed by a Hive Mind. They are colonial organisms that assemble into shapes resembling wireframe models of various species of Digimon in five different colors. Each type is named according to its color and the Digimon species it mimics; "Spiral-10##R" are red and Brave, "Spiral-20##B" are blue and Calm, "Spiral-30##N" are purple and Deft, "Spiral-40##Y" are yellow Tenacious, and "Spiral-50##G" are green and Devoted, with the ## denoting the mimicked species as listed below.
Spirals appear within Digital Points, which usually disappear once the Spirals are defeated.[please confirm] Spirals have the ability to possess Digimon and cause them to go berserk, and can also divert a Digimon's digivolution into a dark digivolution.
They can also open portals to the Digital World.

The Spirals are Digital Lifeforms that originated as fragments of data which were generated by the rifts between the Real and Digital World, spontaneously materializing in both. The fragments developed their Hive Mind and quickly concluded that their purpose was to continue consolidating, but eventually grew lonely and resentful with feeling like outsiders to both worlds. They initially attempted to achieve self-actualization by assembling into shapes resembling Digimon, but were unsatisfied with mere mimicry and ultimately began trying to create a Digimon-like vessel from their own data. On a fluke, one of their attempts resulted in Herissmon's DigiEgg. When Herissmon turned out to have his own sense of self, preventing assimilation, the Hive Mind originally discarded him as a failure.
However, they learned that Herissmon had managed to achieve self-actualization on his own, and decided to exploit his Spiral roots to mold him into their vessel. By attacking Herissmon continuously and en masse, they weakened him and forced him to "synchronize" with them, transforming him into Rasenmon Fury Mode and successfully realizing their vessel. Unfortunately, the Hive Mind began panicking when they realized that by forcing Herissmon to assimilate with them, they had in turn been assimilated with Herissmon, and now felt his emotions and sense of self. In pain, they began lashing out wildly at the world around them.
Within Fury Mode, in an attempt to understand and resolve the discordance caused by Herissmon's residual will, the Hive Mind explained their past and his creation to Herissmon.
As the Spiral Hive Mind controls Rasenmon Fury Mode's rampage, Herissmon mind awakens and it tries to talk to Hive Mind, attempting to tell it that there is more than sadness, anger, and despair, that the World is also filled with happiness, and that Herissmon and the Spiral are the same - however the Spiral reject this and tell Herissmon that it is nothing like them, is just a vessel, is an irregularity, and continues the rampage. Herissmon comes to the conclusion that it should also be able to control the Spiral just like how they had been controlling it and digivolves to Filmon, Stefilmon, and then Rasenmon. The Hive Mind tell Rasenmon that it will be unable to stop the rampage on its own, however after Rasenmon attacks the Hive Mind it finally manages to get its message across. The Hive Mind stops both Fury Mode and the Spiral's rampage and all the Spiral turn back into fragments, however this also causes Rasenmon to turn into fragments as well. The fragments then form into Pusumon's Digi-Egg.
As Herrismon and the Spiral spend the next few months together resting within Pusumon's Digi-Egg, they inform Herissmon that as result of taking in its data, they had began to achieve their own individuality - with each Spiral becoming its own being. They thank Herissmon for helping them to achieve this evolution and no longer think of it as a failure, telling it to live on as a Digimon. The Digi-Egg eventually hatches as Pusumon, with the Spiral being released from it as well.
After the Protagonist and Pusurimon return from their over-seas vacation a Digital Point opens up, the first since the Rasenmon Fury Mode incident. As the group go into it they find a 4004Y and Pusurimon stops Salamon and Elecmon from fighting it so that it can ask the Spiral why it had opened the Digital Point, wondering if they were in trouble and needed help. After the Spiral states it can understand Pusurimon it is suddenly enveloped in a Dark Aura before it can say why it had opened the Digital Point and attacks Pusurimon. It spawns more Spiral, and so the group reluctantly fight them. The Spiral continue to be hostile, spawning more Digital Points, fighting the Tamers in them once again.

They appear from Floor 16 onwards in the Underworld Dungeon.
