Uratekumon is a Hints and Tips Appmon.


  • Ue-Shita-Ue-Shita-Migi-Migi-Hidari-Hidari-X-Y[1] (上下上下右右左左XY? lit. "Up, Down, Up, Down, Right, Right, Left, Left, X, Y")
  • Kamiwaza Combo (カミワザコンボ Kamiwaza Konbo?, lit. "Superhuman Combo")


Uratekumon appears as a monkey-like creature with a retro gaming console, which appears to draw particular inspiration from the Sega CDX, that has arms attached to its head. It holds a wireless game controller in its hands and has a power cord for a tail. Like all Appmon, it has two cables to allow Applink, though they're on the back of the console.

Notes and references

  1. This attack is a parody of the famous Konami Code, which is "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A".
  2. In this case, "Retro" is used to mean Retrogaming, and "waza" being synonymous to "tech", short for technique (テクニック?) which refers to glitches and other in-game secrets in video gaming popularized in the 1980s.
