    It seriously makes me think of a monstrous kitsune, what it's multiple tails.

    It's a Digimon.

    It doesn't need to be anything.

    EDIT: Isn't Pagumon a pug, though? That would probably make Gazimon a dog.

    There's a couple of older child Digimon that are not supposed to be anything in specific. Elecmon, Gazimon, Gizamon, and Betamon are the ones that come to mind. I wouldn't be able to narrow done what they are supposed to be either. Maybe even Plotmon considering it evolves into Tailmon.


    This is very pedantic, but I can see it maybe being inspire by the nekomata, but not based on it completely. In the same way Elecmon was inspired by the Kitsune those multiple tails.

    I love the comparison to Wile Coyote too lol.

    I always thought the reason X Antibody Gazimon looked like a Sabretooth Tiger was because DinoTigermon debuted around the same time. I always thought Gazimon X should be the child for Tobucatmon>Skullbaluchimon>DinoTigermon considering the similarities between them all but I don't think it was actually in the cardgame.

    Also I remember people in the Digimon Evolution thread explaining how Gazimon looked like a good child for Devidramon, which doesn't really help answer what he's supposed to be lol.

    I always thought it was weird how they connected Gaomon to Gazimon too.

    You make a good point. Considering how diverse the pre-Pendulum evolution lines were, it actually makes sense for the Child Digimon to have a kind of "mixed" feel to them - after all, they can practically evolve into anything. I'm surprised you didn't mention Gabumon too, since he's a lizard in a wolf pelt with a forehead-horn. Makes the platypus look straightforward, if you ask me XD

    I rationalize it this way too. I know many people are tempted to find connections to (real world) animals/creatures, but in Gazimon's case it's hard to find anything beyond inspiration.

    Isn't Nyaromon a cat?

    Those kind of reasonings don't really work.

    When I was a child I always thought Gazimon was a cat, without thinking about it at all. Now that I know of the connection to Gaomon I think it's dog...ish. I'm going with Gazimon being a monster that's similar to a dog, but definitely not a dog itself.

    Nyaromon seems like a cat. Gazimon seems like a 'thing.' Plotmon seems like a dog. Gatomon seems like a cat. Ophanimon seems like an angel. Magnadramon seems like a dragon.

    Some lines don't have a physically obvious theme.

    I had no idea there were so many people who were so confused as to what animal Gazimon looks like.

    I never had this problem. I could tell right from the get-go what animal he resembled, and have never questioned it since.

    From the first time I laid eyes on the bunch of Gazimon that worked for Etemon, I could instantly tell that it was obviously an anthropomorphic wolf with exaggerated cartoony features and unrealistic fantasy features.

    I thought they were coyotes too. They reminded me of Scar's minions from the Lion King.
