Evening Fellow Digi-Lovers.
i had been searching quite a few sites over the last few weeks, looking for the most put-together data on Veemon and his Digi-Line, in preparation for a fan-fiction i was planning to write.
this fan-fiction was going to try and fix the 'Mistakes' That had been made of Davis's Veemon, [in Universe As It Were], In the Form of A time-travel Fan-fiction Based Upon one i had read earlier, and using the most complete details that have been put together over the years as Digimon grew.
This Fanfic was going to be based around the anime, following the same'ish' story with a few changes. i was going to use the Digimon World DS Digi-Evolution System.
now i wasn't able to put much of it down but the first thing i did was work out Veemon's Proper Digi-line.
Now This Is His DS Line.
Mega Stage One.
ImperialDramon Dragon Mode.
Mega Stage Two.
ImperialDramon Fighter Mode.
And The Armour Forms In The Same Game, Interestingly Enough Are Of The Ultimate Stage. This Is The Same Classification The Most Reliable Wiki's For Digimon Give These Forms As Well.
[RaidRamon is Not In Digimon World DS but is in its Sequel With an Identical Level Classification]
Now i thought To Myself, if this is their actual established strength, then what reason could i find that would explain why two out of the three were so weak. to be mistakenly classed as champion level digimon. i found my answer in the first episode of Adventure 02. Veemon Was Sealed, He Has No Memories Before Waking up from the Seal. so what if when he was Sealed. Part Of His Digital Core Broke Away and Formed the Digi-egg of Miracles, But in the process took almost half his total power and his memories with it. with most of his power gone and his memories missing, he would be fighting his body even as he tried to first use that form again.
this idea could work out and explain why flamedramon and raidramon could not stand-up to their actual class rank digimon opponents.
that would mean i would need to find a reason for his sealing. and then i remembered the classification of ImperialDramon Dragon Mode.
Imperialdramon Dragon Mode is an Ancient Dragon Digimon. It is an ultimate Digimon that existed in ancient times. There is a clear distinction between it and other Digimon in terms of existence or ability. Also, Imperialdramon [Base Mega Form] is called the Dragon Mode, Due to its immense power, controlling it is next to impossible, and depending on how it is raised it may become a savior or a God of destruction.
by the above meaning. a mega level digimon, whether they are dragons or angels and demons, just cant keep up with Imperialdramon Dragon Mode. and it gets worse from there. you see he reigns supreme over all dragons and yet nearly all of his power is sealed because of his inability to control it.
and that brings us to ImperialDramon Fighter Mode. Most believe this to be a standard mode change, and they are partially correct. this is the true Imperialdramon, the second stage mega who is in control of all his released power. this form is at the absolute limit of a mega far surpassing omnimon in power and ability. and for a very good reason. omnimon is the fusion of wargreymon and metalgarurumon. and has generally about five times the strength and ability of wargreymon or metalgarurumon.
the reason most believe him to be more powerful than Imperialdramon fighter mode is because of his ability Omega In-force. [which allows him to partially negate damage] this doesnt mean he is stronger than Fighter Mode, it means he can partially shield himself. there is a big difference people. Omnimon is only about half as strong as ImperialDramon fighter mode. not taking in Imperialdramon Dragon modes Ability Which Transfers to Fighter Mode because of its cannon. Its Special Move is firing super-massive dark matter, swallowing everything in a dark space (Mega Death). This technique is a terrifying ability that completely annihilates everything within a radius of a few hundred meters around the impact-point of the dark matter. Imperialdramon Dragon mode [The Anime One][Who Also Was At Half Strength] had almost 96% of its real power unusable because he would go insane from the power surge. and it was on par with Wargreymon. [im not talking about blackwargreymon who was three times stronger than wargreymon at a minimum]. so in reality Fighter Mode at Full Strength is almost 12x Stronger than a standard mega. that is stupidly powerful and he can actually use that power. And Then He Went and Upgraded Dragon Modes Most Powerful Attack to the following, then emitting all of its body's energy as a destructive energy wave (Giga Death). Its power is ten times that of Dragon Mode's "Mega Death".
Full Power Fighter Mode Using That Would be about 15x Wargreymon.
with his Digi-core broken i would place fighter mode at only 6x more powerful than wargreymon at best. [say 10x when using Giga-Death] because of the fact that he is basically missing half his total power in the form of the Digi-egg of miracles. so this would match up with the anime.
Paladin Mode is a whole other kettle of fish.
back in the days of Adventure and 02, there was no class higher than mega, so those that were clearly at a level higher were still called mega, that has changed and lucky ImperialDramon Paladin Mode has Reflected that. In Recent Years the need for another level has been finally addressed and of the few that move up to this new tier Paladin mode is one.
the Newest Tier Of Digimon in The Dub!, is Ultra.
an Ultra Level Digimon is So Powerful that it could Smack ImperialDramon Fighter Mode and Omnimon around like they were children in an adults sports game.
Paladin Mode is somewhat near the low end of the Tier, but that's not so bad when you consider that the upper end has digimon the size of planets that can wipe out the digital world without moving.
There is a Reason that ImperialDramon Paladin Mode was the Founder Of The Royal Knights. it Equaled and in some cases surpassed the Digimon Sovereigns and the Four Heavenly Dragons.
Firstly ImperialDramon fighter Mode Does not Need to Have Omnimons Power To become a Paladin Mode. he can naturally Reach His Highest Form On His Own.
As the final, strongest form of Imperialdramon that was told of since ancient times, it descended in a time of great disruption in the ancient Digital World, and rescued the world from complete collapse. However, all of the details of that era are a mystery, and if research into Digimon and the Digital World progresses, it is likely that they will eventually be clarified. Its Special Move is cutting the opponent in two with a single stroke of its ultimate "Omega Blade" sword, resetting and clearing their configuration data.
Meaning. he cuts you once, barely cutting through an opponents skin, which with his strength would tear an opponent in half through that cut. and he turns you into a digi-egg and erases who you are. without even having to use his other abilities, and just for Clarification Paladin Mode Has Been somewhat identified as 4x more powerful than fighter mode, if not stronger. Firmly In the Ultra Class.
So What Does All the Lengthy Above Mean?
in the Anime Something Massively Damaging must have happened to Veemon before his sealing to have lost so much of his Strength. With this being The Debut my Headcanon is that he was the original ImperialDramon with his various modes, Who Created The Royal Knights and then for some reason dissapeared. only to take massive damage to his digital core, before regressing to Veemon and being Sealed.
because lets be honest. if the anime stuck with what they had designed and didnt contradict themselves. the above would be the real strength of Veemon.
oh and just for those who will say that parts of his power come from stingmon and omnimon?. i have the following for you.
In The Official Wiki's and Accepted BIO and Data
ExVeemon Can Legitimately Digivolve to PailDramon With Or without Stingmon. its his Natural Ultimate Form Of the ExVeemon Line.
ExVeemon's Natural Mega form is The ImperialDramon Line.
ExVeemon Can Become ImperialDramon Dragon Mode By Warp Digivolving on his own and completely Skipping Paildramon.
ExVeemon Can Become ImperialDramon Fighter Mode By Warp Digivolving on his own and completely Skipping Dragon Mode
ExVeemon Can Become ImperialDramon Paladin Mode By Warp Digivolving on his own and completely Skipping Fighter Mode.
Veemon Or ExVeemon can armor Digi-Volve to Flamedramon which is really an ultimate class.
Veemon Or ExVeemon can armor Digi-Volve to RaidRamon which is really an ultimate class.
Veemon Or ExVeemon can armor Digi-Volve to Magnamon which is really an ultimate class.
now this was a very long post for me so i would like your opinions. does my post make sense in the real power that has been officially established for veemons line, and does my personal explanation for his poor performance in the early anime make some kind of sense. twisted or not?. i did note above that i was using two specific sources as canon. firstly Digimon Adventure 02 English Dubbed Anime and secondly the Digimon World DS Games.
one last note. if someone posts saying all my info is wrong and that imperialdramon is a piece of shit.... yadayadayada. please note i will ignore you for saying all my info is completely false and he would be stomped over by Omnimon or wargreymon or whatever... i did my homework, i spent weeks piecing all the info together through the official wiki's and Anime and Games. all i posted above is fact, [other than my personal opinion as to why Anime Canon Veemon was Weaker than he should have been]. and the Info is Very Easy to find on WikiMon.net which is the most reliable source for official digimon data on the internet and is rarely if ever wrong. and if it is at some point wrong, it gets corrected a couple of days later.
see you soon and i look forward to hearing from people.
