I know Sasasi is the king of cameos but this is ridiculous.
I would have to see a high res uploaded to his social media or the card physically to spot all the cameos

What a way to end the Dragon's Roar promo. The Dragon Emperor himself.

I still hope Bandai will someday release the artbook(s) of the card game. All artworks in high res. Would definitely love it.

I guess they're all there to get a better sense of scale. Never mind Examon himself, his sword is massive. You could prob stack millions of those Birdramon together into a birdramon megatron and still be smaller than this Examon

I won't deny it's well drawn, but I don't love when Examon's portrayed as a skyscaper, which Sasasi likes to do.
....isn't that like Examon's defining trait? Also has Sasasi ever drawn Examon besides here?

Not necessarily. Data size doesn't necessarily have to equate to physical size. I view it more as a massive concentration of data, kind of like a .zip format. The colossal size depicted in the card is just impractical. xD RK Examon was depicted as massive in Cyber Sleuth, but in Xros Wars (and party member Examons in Cyber Sleuth) he is a much smaller, more manageable size.

Sasasi drew Examon previously, but only in an unofficial fanart capacity.

Anyways, not to get off topic.

Who is that in the very bottom left corner next to the level? The best my brain can figure is metalgreymon 2010. Would love a high res version of the art without the card's text to see who all is behind it as well.

Here he is, the Emperor who stands above all dragons, Lord Examon!

Loving the scale of this image, we surprisingly don't have a card that plays into that aspect of the character so it's nice to get one that does. I also like the dragons around him, as them in addition to his pose with the lance gives him a nice regal feel fitting of both the Dragon Emperor and Royal Knight titles. It's a really good card for him and I'm glad Sasasi delivered with it.

Though I have to agree it does make me hope they release a card artbook for all of these cards. This and so many others would be great to see without all of the card effects.

Unless you're referring to Volcanicdramon, I don't see a Digimon down there. Looks like just mountains and trees.

The ones that i can make up are: Volcanicdramon,a bunch of Birdramon,Paildramon,Metalgreymon,Airdramon,Megadramon,Brachimon,Metalicdramon,Volcdramon,MegaloGrowmon,AeroVeedramon

I won't deny it's well drawn, but I don't love when Examon's portrayed as a skyscaper, which Sasasi likes to do.

Except the more data a digimon has the bigger it gets. Examon is specifically stated in one of the artbooks that he has the same data size as File Island so he is about as big. Him being small in CS and the Xross Wars manga is just the limitation of the in-game scaling and the manga drawing. Examon is meant to be about this gigantic. Not to mention that there are digimon who make even Examon look small like Ogudomon/Ogudomon X, Grace Novamon and Leviamon.

yeah when the artbook and the story of Cyber Sleuth both depict him as massive, it makes it seem like most of the people who work on Digimon agree that this guy is at least skyscraper level.
Sasasi might be exaggerating it beyond that depiction but when Digimon can shrink their physical size by compressing their data, maybe they can also flex by enlargening their size by expanding their data?
Size in Digimon is weird and general and doesn't make a lot of sense. Like Thundermon seem big now when they appear in Ghost Game, much larger than the Mamemon in Adventure: 2020 despite Thundermon being like 7 inches tall in Adventure 02?

I wonder if Yggdrasil created its holy lance Ambrosius or its wings Caledfwlch. Even knowing how Vulcanusmon is the god of smithery, I can't imagine even him being able to craft something so absurdly massive

Examon should be at least the size of File Island as the Digimon 20th Anniversary - Digital Monster Art Book Ver. 1~5 & 20th states that it has the same amount of data
Sometimes I wonder how this big boi can become a Royal Knight, he doesn't fit in the round table.
The Royal Knights live in the Kernel outside the past,present,future and space-time of the Digital World, an infinite hyperspace on the 100th floor of Infinity Mountain.So size is not a problem.

The only digimon I can't recognize is the one "above" Brachimon and "below" Megadramon.

is this, like, an italicized headcanon of yours or is there somewhere where this is stated?

If amount of data equates to literal size (which I doubt), it should be exactly the size of File Island.
