Zubamon is a Weapon Digimon. One of the "Legend-Arms", who are capable of transforming themselves into weapons. A legend about the Legend-Arms goes, “if held by an angel it will save the world, and if held by a demon it will destroy the world.” Zubamon carries the ”Twentiest” data, and often shouts out “I am the Twentiest!” despite not understanding what it means. It despises crookedness, and is constantly seeking sharpness. A day where its battles, jokes, and sharpness turn out well will leave it in high spirits. Zubamon's true power is exhibited while it is in its weapon form.

Attacks

  • Twenty Dive[2]: Charges head-first.
  • 20 Scratch

Design

Zubamon is a bipedal reptilian creature with red eyes, a tail, and three digits on its hands and feet. It wears a golden armor that covers most of its body, and a white cape. Its armor has a claw at each digit, a black losangle-shaped object in the tail, a small blade-like object on each knee, an orange "0" on its left shoulder pad, and a sword-like horn on its helmet. The horn emits a blue light on its blade, and it has a silver "20" on its left side.
