Digimon Dictionary


An unidentifiable Digimon appeared in the Digital World all of a sudden. Calling itself the King of Digimon, its fighting strength is beyond imagination. It is rumored that it secretly operates the mysterious Digimon Monzaemon. It has dressed its body in a "Kyouka Saru Suit" (Reinforced Monkey Suit) that can endure every attack, and even today it bustles around the whole world for the sake of its unending battles. Its special technique Love Serenade suffocates the hearts of its enemies and eliminates their fighting spirit, and Dark Spirits is a black sphere that completely annihilates those who touch it. (Grímúlfr)

Note-1 Fishermen say the word "Etekou" (得公) instead of "Saru" (猿) or monkey, as the word "Saru" can also mean "to leave" (去る) and not come back, and that is what they most worry about when going out on their fishing boats. (Superstitions and Taboos in Ibaraki and Japan) (KrytenKoro)

Note-2 In V-Tamer an Etemon called Etemonkey had a design that was heavily based on rock stars.
