After finding out about him bordering on half a year ago (2), we finally have a name and more details.

Lianpumon is the name of the Digimon we found out about earlier in the year.

It's based on costumes worn for the Bian lian, a type of Chinese opera. Lianpu is a type of mask worn in them, which makes sense. His name in China translated roughly as 'Face Beast'


A look at his various masks/faces...

Which also represent his moods.




A few gifs of Lianpumon which we're mirrored at imgur.





Thanks to a few for the images including Ulforce_Soul, with some more images being from Weixin.

I was expecting him using the masks on his cloak, but nope he just use some random designs.
Also people are saying he's Adult-level, a bit disappointed since we have way too much Adult-level monkeys, and very few of the higher levels, I think we only have Gokuwmon and Makuramon? Not counting the Etemon lines.

I was thinking when we were gonna see them again just a few days ago! Really happy it was finally officially revealed. I hope we can see Lianpumon's reference book art soon.

Seems like they have three moves from these animations. A scatter-explosive attack by throwing masks, a boomerang move with the mask as well. And some sort of mist/teleportation ability.

Xiquemon got Huankunshou as an evolution. Is possible Lianpumon might get an evolution designed for it in the game, as well.

I actually saw the name months ago but thought the person who told me the name was 脸谱兽 was trolling as 脸谱 is the Chinese name of Facebook but it turns out I should've looked into it more as Chinese Wikipedia for 脸谱 mentions that it has nothing to do with the Facebook app and just happens to share a name with the mask and you could techincally, but shouldn't, translate the name to Facebookmon. So we could've known months ago what his name was. Not his Japanese name I suppose, and it's nice to see his attack animations.

He was actually in the game as a raid boss for a few months but wasn't playable until today. It prob wouldn't have been hard to find footage of people fighting the raid boss to confirm the name before now, I just didn't feel like it.

It's obviously self-explanatory, but the text label the masks with their corresponding emotions.
The default white mask is its normal face. The pink mask is its happy face. The blue mask is its sad face. The green mask is its shocked face. The black mask is its angry face.

Seems like they have three moves from these animations. A scatter-explosive attack by throwing masks, a boomerang move with the mask as well. And some sort of mist/teleportation ability.
While it does have 3 moves, that last one isn't a move. That's more of an idle animation. Its three moves are: the scattered mask-throwing one, the boomerang one with the shadow being, and the third one is what seems to be a support skill that buffs itself and its allies.

Oh, good to know. I hope we get the translation soon.

Edit: it seems wikimon already has a translation up, alongside type, level and attribute and attack names and descriptions.

Adult level... Lianpumon. Huh Oh? So it heals and shares the data with other allies? Compared to all other monkey digimons, I find him pretty cool! For Data Attribute monkey digimon. With unique powers.

this design just screams my energy! I love him.
I think I'm just a mutant type specialist Tamer the more I think about it since Lianpumon is a mutant type. If Digimon were real I would spend all my time studying the mutants it seems.
I like how its profile confirms that it's canonically buddies with the digimon on its cape which consists of a bunch of other digimon I love.
I really hope the franchise uses the New Century newcomers in all its other media like they do with Blucomon's family. I want my Lianpumon!

that's really not relevant to what Muur was saying

Maybe we'll see them added together.

I wait for the profile to understand the digimon faces on the cape. Or it might be just random faces there. Or maybe the faces could be changed to other digimon faces according to the mood of this digimon..

The one thing I understand now is I love the design.

Wikimon provided a translation that explains the faces. Unfortunately, New Century doesn't seem to depict Lianpumon's usage of them

Thank you. That's interesting. So it seems the faces on the cape could change.

I love the way this digimon shows expressions, it's worth a good story. And the true face being mentioned reminds me of Sepikmon, which is also a monkey digital monster.

This is interesting. Nice to see a new Mon. Interesting idea. I wonder what other new Mon we could get.

Looks like a fun Digimon to have in an anime what with his mask changing being used to indicate his emotions for comedic effect. <3

They should’ve used this guy instead of Betsumon for the imposter episode.

These New Century exclusives still feel like a fever dream to me.
