Whamon is a Sea Animal Digimon. Whamon inhabits the "Net Ocean" (the Network's ocean where Digimon are born). Since it lives in the deepest parts of the Net Ocean, it is rarely ever encountered (the organs in parts of it equivalent to its eyes have degenerated). Due to its ferocious personality, it will attack by generating an enormous tsunami.[5] There is a phantom "White Whamon", which is being pursued by Hookmon.[6]

Attacks

  • Jet Arrows[7] (Jet Arrow)
  • Tidal Wave: Generates a giant tidal wave that destroys everything.
  • Kuchi de Hasamu Kougeki (口ではさむこうげき? lit: Mouth-clamping Attack)
  • Giant Press (Gigant Press)

Design

Whamon is essentially a large sperm whale-like Digimon that has a brown shell on its head and back with visible spinal cord and ribs. Its eyes have degenerated[8] and it has cables in place of them. It has three pairs of fins with the dorsal fins being the largest. The Champion version appears to be slightly smaller than the Ultimate version. The phantom "White Whamon" pursued by Hookmon is a reference to Moby-Dick.

  1. Digimon Reference Book: Whamon: "Although it has been possible to confirm it as the same species as those in File Island's coastal waters, this Whamon, which lives off of Folder Continent's coast, and whose appearance is totally the same, has surpassed the previous in both offensive ability and vitality, and accomplished an evolution to Perfect."
