Taomon is a Wizard Digimon. Versed in Onmyōdō, it is an onmyōji Digimon that freely uses every technique in battle. Its faculty with magic is particularly high, and attacks with talismans and spells are its forte. Also, it is a master of concealed weapons, and hides various weapons up its sleeves. It doesn't talk very much due to its extreme reticence, and it is a being that lives and lurks within the darkness. Also, it is able to turn its talismans into shikigami and command them.
- Talisman of Light (梵筆閃 Bonhitsusen?, lit. "Buddhist Brush Brandish"): Chants the incantation "Bon-Hitsu-Sen" (梵・筆・閃?) while painting the Sanskrit character "𑖮𑗝𑖽" (Hūṃ?) in the air with its gigantic brush, then hurls it at the opponent to catch them in a gigantic explosion and annihilate them.
- Thousand Spells (狐封札 Kofūsatsu?, lit. "Fox-seal Scrolls"): Wreathes its talismans around the opponent's body, then detonates them.
- Talisman Star (塵染 Rajas?): Uses the Devanagari letter "र" (ra?) as blades to cut through the darkness.
- Talisman Spell (オン On?, lit. "Aum"): Creates and chants the sacred syllable "ॐ" (Auṃ?) to form a hemispherical yin-yang shield capable of movement.
- Brush Stroke (一筆 Ippitsu?, lit. "One Stroke"): Uses a large brush to hit the enemy.
- Brush Strike (一閃 Issen?, lit. "One Flash"): Strikes the enemy with a huge brush.
- Trinity Force (Trinity Burst): A combined attack with WarGrowlmon and Rapidmon. This attack turns all three Digimon into crystal and then a giant phoenix beam.
Taomon is a humanoid Digimon with fox-like characteristics. It wears a white onmyōji robe with vertical plates on the shoulders, the Sanskrit character for "𑖮𑗝𑖽" (Hūṃ?) emblazoned on the front, the yin-yang symbol on the chest and shoulder plates (beneath three red wisps in the latter instance), and red and white triangles on the ends of the sleeves. It also wears baggy purple pants, and a tall, black and purple hat. It has white, three-fingered hands and white, three-toed feet with black claws and black paw pads in both instances. It has a yellow furred tail with a white tip, and a yellow, fox-like face with purple markings on its cheeks and forehead and white-tipped ears. It also has black eyes with indigo irises.
