    So Huck/Hackmon should really be Hakumon? I suppose that makes sense in a roundabout way and he can join Holsmon/Halsemon (who should be Horusmon) as Digimon who's official romanizations are wrong.

    If that's true about Jesmon, shouldn't he be called JESmon? I'm a little suspicious of that... the fact he evolves from SAVIOURHackmon, has the Sistermon as his servents and was the Digimon destined to defeat another Digimon who is based on the Beast of Revelation certainly suggests "Jesus" to me.

    Couple things:
    1. It's been explicitly stated that Jesmon is not Jesus and faux symbolism is a well known thing in media, Evangelion was famous for it.
    2. Where does it say he's destined to defeat another Digimon who is based on the Beast of Revelation? Cause that sounds like complete fanon to me. Likewise the Sistermon are chaperones, not servants; not the same thing.
    3. English media spelled Dorumon without the capitalization long before the Hackmon line was made so there is in fact a precedent for the letter casing.

    Didn't read properly the thing I was quoting

    How can it be Savior and not Jesus? "Justice Edge Swordsman" sounds like something made up afterwards so they don't have to admit it was Jesus.

    Saber and JES would have worked too. Even better because of Baou.

    No, they don't seem too take capitalization into account in general. The reference book gives all romaji names in upper case (and in other cases it's no less arbitrary), and there's no special distinction for acronyms like DORUmon, so in that context you could argue that has always been JESmon.

    That statement clearly contradicts itself. Unless the prevalence of random symbolism somehow denies specific cases of it happening.

    ...That's only true for Hackmon though. It's seems nonsensical for them to be still chaperoning a fully grown Royal Knight, especially as the profiles of his other forms highlight his growing independence.

    I mean that any inclusion of symbolism in media should be taken with a grain of salt since random symbolism that serves absolutely no purpose does exist.

    The only things that they are explicitly stated to do for Hackmon are escort and train him. He may very well have separated from them by the time he becomes Jesmon.

    You might want to look into Hackmon's introduction in Digimon Collectors and the whole battle with Ogudomon. I don't actually know much about that game myself, but that's what everyone's talking about. It's where the idea that BaoHackmon might be special like Lucemon in that it could take on Ultimate (Mega) level Digimon, but I think it was always said the reason Hackmon was needed to defeat Ogudomn had to do with his pure heart (and not because he was randomly OP, lol). And since Ogudomon was some sort of collection of all the sins of Digimon, only Hackmon was meant to defeat it to absolve the Digital World of those sins, or at least that's what I took away from it.

    Except that it is Ogudomon itself that has the ability to atone for the sins of all Digimon, not Hackmon or any of its Digivolutions. And from what I can tell, Hackmon is meant to convince it to do so by proving that Digimon as a species are worthy of this.

    What's more, the story of Collectors has fuck all to do with Jesmon anyway since that stage doesn't appear in the game at all.
