Velgemon is a Giant Bird Digimon. It possesses power over Darkness which bears the might of AncientSphinxmon. It has the appearance of a monstrous, colossal bird, and due to its baleful appearance and nature, it is called the "Corpse Swallower". It transforms from Duskmon into fine particles, then comes flying out of a sky shrouded by the massive black fog they became. The intensely proud Duskmon hates transforming into the ugly, irrational Velgemon, so it doesn't show its Velgemon appearance unless under extreme circumstances. In normal battles, its main tools of combat are its claws which have a tendency to blind the opponent, and its fangs which can crunch even metal.
- Dark Obliteration (Zone Deleter): Flaps its wings with all its power, blowing away the opponent and all of the space around them to another dimension.
- Dark Vortex (Master of Darkness): Changes the opponent's nature to darkness and manipulates them to its heart's content.
- Velgrmon (ベルグモン)

A Velgemon appears working for Devimon and chasing after T.K. Takaishi. It destroys Bulbmon and captures T.K. before overpowering MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon. As the two are about to be destroyed by Velgemon's ultimate attack, T.K.'s anger and distress causes Angemon to break free of his bonds and knock Velgemon out of the sky, breaking his attack on MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon in the process. Angemon's power strengthens MetalGreymon and WereGarurumon, allowing them to finally destroy Velgemon. However, the effort drains the last of Angemon's power and he is reborn as a Digi-Egg.
Velgemon is defeated by the DigiDestined's Partner Digimon.
