Yatakaramon is a Bewitching Bird Digimon. Possessing three legs, it is a bizarre Digimon. Although its jet-black body presents an evil image to those who see it, it is told that it is the Digimon who guides the chosen to El Dorado (Golden Land[2]) in the eastern Digital World. The eastern Digital World is a region where there are still many mysteries, and it is said that "El Dorado" is protected by multiple sacred barriers. Although it is said that, with Yatakaramon's guidance, the barriers will be released, traditionally, only those who surmount the "Threefold Trials" submitted by Yatakaramon will finally arrive at "El Dorado", and it is told that those who were not able to endure the trials are dispatched to the Dark Area.[3]


  • Mikafutsu-no-kami (甕布都神? lit. "God of the Jug and Cloth Capital")[4]: Concentrates the energy produced from the Dokkosho on both of its wings in its foreleg, then fires it, causing its opponent to have its digital cells disassembled to a state of "0"s and "1"s.
  • Haguro (羽黒? lit. "Feather-black"): Transforms the surrounding 3 km into a dark night by means of the black light emitted by its jet-black feathers.


Yatakaramon is derived from the Yatagarasu of Japanese myth, referencing its dark plumage, three legs, and association with divinity by the Dokkosho on its wings. It wears a Holy Ring around its waist. It has a second pair of wings and its talons are purple. It has a gold mask, four blue eyes, and a red, toothed beak.
