It's the Arena from World 1, pretty sure you can't have things die there.

So the battle arena from World 1, feels slightly off if Megadramon is in here to be Maki's partner but nice reference all the same (actually, is that why Monochromon was in this set???? ReArise Tapirmon was Taprimon > Monochromon > Megadramon so is this card set implying the same for Tri by having Tapirmon, Maki, Monochromon, and Megadramon? I think they are actually, interesting. or at the least, they included Sara's Tapirmon's line in this set by having those three Digimon. maybe Machinedramon will be in it too?)

no effect that buffs your other digimon when it dies?

We haven't got a Huanglongmon card yet, right? If we get one here, the "intended line" would be Maki's.

I think before Huanglongmon, we get Baihumon first. And if it is Baihumon, it sure is "intended" for Daigo's.
I fail to agree with the idea of Huanglongmon would be Maki's partner. Because it's not. There's a reason why it happened like that in the flashback.
If Omegamon MM is the partner of all 8 01 Chosen Children, Huanglongmon should be the partner of all 4 (or 5, if you still want to include Maki) 00 Chosen Children.

While I consider Huanglongmon to be a separate being from the regular Four Holy Beasts, I don't really see it as a potential evolution for Maki's partner either (and we know for a fact that Bakumon never evolved to Ultimate as far as tri. is concerned). Not everything has to fit into a pattern.

Regardless, Mugendramon seems more likely as the Lv.6 of the line. There's the precedent with ReArise's Bakumon (which the Monochromon component of the line is taken from), but there's also that recently-revealed Option card that specifically supports Lv.6 Machine Digimon (of course, the Option could just be solely meant for the new Raidenmon card).

In addition, with how much Black and Red are associated with the 'cyborg dragons' (MetalGreymon, MetalTyranomon, Megadramon/Gigadramon, etc.), dual-Black/Red suits Mugendramon more than Huanglongmon.

Not to mention, the Megadramon card itself has an inherited effect that only applies to Machine and Dragon Man Digimon, of which Huanglongmon is neither.

I'd be pretty accepting of it since it is a dragon and the Huanglong Ore of its body is almost indestructible. I could also see it being purple/yellow because of its taoist themes

I didn't mean to say that it's impossible for Huanglongmon; just that it's far more suitable for Mugendramon in comparison. Anyways, now that I realize that Gaioumon is the Red/Black Lv.6 implicitly tied to Bakumon's line in this set, both of them are incorrect.


As for Yellow/Purple, I feel that this specific Color combination has too much connotation with angels and demons, and the individual colors themselves don't have much to do with Huanglongmon (well, Yellow in the very literal sense does).

Rather, I could see Huanglongmon unironically being a dual-Black/White (with either a Rainbow evolution cost, or 4 Colors to represent each of the Four Holy Beasts). I feel Black/White more accurately captures the 'pure' extremities of light and darkness, without the angelic and demonic connotation. Black also connects to the Ouryumon line, who has the closest relationship with Huanglongmon.

Dual-White would be very unusual, yes; but Huanglongmon itself is very unusual for a Digimon, such as its complete lack of attribute in the DRB.

I was never keen on the implication that Maki's Megadramon was going to become a Machinedramon, cuz the Dark Masters already had one.
