Digimon Dictionary


A Beast Man Digimon which lives faithful only to the "Justice" in which it trusts. It is said that only Digimon who continue to emerge victorious in battles with fierce champions, without their spirit being "broken", are able to acquire the title of "Bantyo", and in the recorded history of the Digital World, only five Digimon which possess this title have been confirmed. As it is a boss that only serves its own "Justice", if something becomes an obstacle to that "Justice", it will see them as "Evil" even if they are a being like the Royal Knights or the Three Great Angels, and they will become an enemy that it has to eliminate. The "GAKU-RAN" worn over its shoulders is endowed with a defensive function that negates 89.9% of the opponent's physical strikes. Its Special Moves are unleashing its "Shishi Raouzan" from its prided tantō, "Dankon", and releasing a fist packed with fighting spirit honed to its utmost limit (Flash Bantyo Punch). (Wildermon)

Digimon Story Moonlight / Sunburst


This Digimon is only loyal to its own sense of justice. It is said that only Digimon who continue to win out against strong enemies can become a Bantyo Leomon. (This profile is from North American release of Digimon Story Moonlight / Sunburst) (Garmmon)


じぶんの しんじるせいぎにのみ ちゅうじつにいきる
おとこぎあふれる じゅうじんがたデジモンで そのせいぎに
はんすれば あいてがだれであれ あくとしてたちむかう
きょうてきとの たたかいに ココロを おられることなく
しょうりしつづけた デジモンのみが 『バンチョー』の
しょうごうを かくとくできると いわれている


Digimon V-Tamer Residence


A Beast Man Digimon that holds the title of "Bantyo", of which 5 beings altogether are confirmed to hold according to the Digital World's recorded history. Only those who continue to win in battles against strong fighters without breaking their souls can acquire this title, meaning that it's very rare to see this happen. It follows its own sense of "Justice", and Digimon who serve as obstacles in regards to that "Justice", even if they are the Royal Knights or the Three Great Angels, will be regarded as "Evil". It has managed to survive through many desperate struggles with its coveted "Dankon" knife, and its "GAKU-RAN" blazer is used like a weapon in battle, destroying the enemy's physical attacks 89.9% of the time.
