This article needs your LOVE

What's needed: reorganize into page similar to D-Reaper -- general background in lead, specific plot actions in fiction, and infobox for each subspecies; identify ID for SkullGreymon, DemiDevimon, Solarmon, Tankmon, Guardromon Spirals etc.; fill in remaining sections and get images for spiral types; add quotes and citations; add specific info about qualia and Herissmon's sermon on it

Spiral are Digital Lifeforms that mimic Digimon.

Design

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.[1]

They can also open Digital Gates to the Digital World. A New Quest! The Mysterious Visitor

Fiction

Digimon ReArise

The Spirals are Digital Lifeforms that originated as fragments of data which were generated by the rifts between the Real and Digital World,[citation needed] 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. Extra Episode: Spiral

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. Extra Episode: Spiral

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. Extra Episode: Spiral

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. The Unforeseeable Future Part Two

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, each Spiral was becoming an individual. They thank Herissmon and encourage it to live on as a Digimon. The Digi-Egg soon hatches into Pusumon, simultaneously releasing the Spiral. A DigiEgg's Dream

A new Digital Point opens up after the Protagonist and Pusurimon return from their overseas vacation, the first since the Rasenmon incident. The team explores it and finds a Spiral-4004Y, which Pusurimon attempts to question. However, just before it can explain itself, it is possessed by a Dark Aura[please confirm] and attacks while spawning even more Spirals, so the team reluctantly fights back. A New Quest! The Mysterious Visitor

The possessed Spirals continue to spawn Digital Points and attack the Tamers even after Mon brings them to the Digital World, but Herissmon is no longer able to communicate with them. The team manages to track down the original Spiral-4004Y, but it orders them not to interfere before retreating alongside the other Spirals. Keito's Decisive Fighting Spirit!

The original Spiral-4004Y later sends a group of Spiral to attack Primary Village to kidnap all the Digi-Eggs and In-Training Digimon. The Tamers eventually find the Spiral-4004Y but it spawns a group of Spiral-4036Y and tries to kill them, telling the group they are not necessary. The Spiral-4036Y are killed by SaviorHuckmon and Rasenmon but the Spiral-4004Y is able to get away. A One-Track Mind! Kazuma Joins the Party

  1. In "A Frenzied Menace! Tamers Unite!" [1.12], a swarm of Spiral-3015Ns resonate with Tyrannomon during its digivolution, causing it to dark digivolve to SkullGreymon, and in "The Embodiment of Counterattacks! Armageddemon Raid Clash Battle!", a swarm of Kuramon and Keramon absorb the data of Spiral-4004Ys in order to digivolve to Diaboromon.
