It probably shows how closely I paid attention to the whole Xros Wars/Fusion era, but has anyone else remarked on how similar Shoutmon x3GM and Arresterdramon are? I just got a Shoutmon x3GM card in Digimon Heroes (Crusader), and I had never encountered him before. I think it's probably my favorite Shoutmon fusion now. Shoutmon x3SD is a close second, though. (Which I discovered looking up x3GM. ^^' )

I get the feeling that X3GM was originally made as a fusion of X3 + Arresterdramon but Arresterdramon got swapped with MetalGreymon since there wasn't a X3 + MetalGreymon fusion while there were fusions for both X3 + AxeKnightmon (X3SD) and AxeKnightmon + MetalGreymon (GreyKnightsmon).

Actually, X3GM, X3SD, and GreyKnightsmon were all created at the same time to debut in Digimon Story: Super Xros Wars. Arresterdramon was introduced seven months later the same year.

The fact that the three fusions and Arresterdramon were revealed in the same year albeit seven months apart means that they could've still been in development around the same time, they just didn't see the need to release Arresterdramon until later presumably for Hunters.

After all, we don't know what the average development period is for a single Digimon species and it's not like there was a difference of several years like we've seen with some lines, most notably the original Cyberdramon line.

Wow I'm a huge Xros Wars lover and I have never noticed this similarity before, but it's cool :O I agree with you, Shoutmon X3 GM & SD are probably my favourite Shoutmon's Xrosses too. Wish they appear in more videogames apart from Super Xros Wars. I remember that I want them so bad while playing the Digimon Xros Loader:

Why is it that the fusions that didn't appear in the show seem to be the best designed?

Wow. I'm surprised I've never seen that shoutmon x3gm before. It really does look like arresterdramon.
