Time for another MonMon Memo!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

The newest MonMon Memo goes over something everyone has wanted to see for awhile...

Big Dreamer Taoka is currently addicted to Digimon ReArise, and he quite likes the story tension, but then that isn't what everyone is interested in...

He pulled himself away from the game to go over a Digimon from the 20th Anniversary Pendulums, which you can get in the 2nd wave that is still up for pre-order.


RagnaLordmon!

We previously got a few details of RagnaLordmon in a prior MonMon Memo as a tease...


We get to see the artwork of the jogress between the strongest sword of the Legend-Arms and the strongest shield of the Legend-Arms.


He comments that it's cool...


It's designed around the sword and shield of Durandamon and Bryweludramon respectively.


The illustration of RagnaLordmon will be in the Art Book Version Pendulum. It'll be the first publication of the art in a large size. (Although the art they give us in the article is quite a bit larger and more detailed than they normally do, which is nice.)



In addition, they show us finalized packaging for the new 20th Pendulums...

Dukemon and Beelzebumon are facing each-other if you pose them side by side like this...


But if you reverse it...

It appears they are in a fearsome battle back to back.


He thinks the packaging design is very cool, and he likes the theme of gold and silver on them. He thinks you'll enjoy the packaging even once you open it up to get to the Pendulums.



The 2nd wave of 20th Pendulums can still be pre-ordered. Details are here.


Next week MonMon Memo will give us new details of the Art Book Version Pendulum.

The skull part has been noticed since Bryweludramon's debut, but I wasn't expecting for the AI units to fit into the eye sockets (although it makes perfect sense in hindsight).

Okay, this is amazing, but they have ruined both this and Bryweldramon with the flames.
Also, not a good or a bad thing, but doesn't he look a bit like an Alphamon variant?

Kind of looks like Durandamon and Bryweludramon are in their weapon forms and something completely different has appeared out of nowhere to wield them.

That said, I like it!

head and middle body looks similar to alphamon's shape but overall it looks pretty badass

Since it is thin, it looks like omegamon to me (plus the center body color does not match either left or right part of its body). The design is awesome, however how it holds durandamon sword is too stiff and it looks like it is floating by propelling on flame.

Yeah I kinda see your point. Anyways, as much as I love Alphamon, RagnaLordmon looks more edgy and baddass overall!! Just different style :)

By the way, I really wish I could know who would win in a battle against OmegaArmamon BM!!

Oh so that's why he is named "RangaLordmon" cuz he have flaming cape and evil armor with "Oni" skulls even DORUmon/Alphamon's forehead gem.

I can't help it but I kinda started to see that Bryweludramon skull resembles to Gankoomon's ghost dragon.... I mean those pointy gills and three holes which dinosaur skulls usually have holes....

He’s really cool looking, although I do agree that the way Durandamon’s sword form is being wielded looks weird.

He reminds me of Omegamon with a little Alphamon and Gaiamon thrown in, I like it.

Also, unless I mistaken, I think this is the first we've seen Bryweldumon's weapon forms outside of sprite work, the shield design is kind of reminiscent of Examon to me.

Wow Ragnalordmon looks awesome! I love the design! I agree with everyone else it looks as if something else showed up to wield Durandamon and Bryweludramon. Makes me think of a Jogress between Alphamon and Dukemon, although I doubt that is the case.

The box of the new ver 20th wave 2 look gorgeous.

I went back to check Durandamon and Bryweludramon's Weapon forms to compare to this. It's pretty much same transformation...
So... Uhh how did they manage to jogress into this while being in Legend Arm modes separately? I mean, both Durandamon and Bryweludramon transformed into those weapons to be wielded so they didn't fuse but then how?!

Their DigiCores may have fused to form this wielder entity leaving their original bodies as empty shells like how WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon became Omegamon's arms.

RagnaLordmon is basically an Omegamon species so the idea that the main body was formed in a similar way to Omegamon in Our War Game would certainly make sense.

WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon technically remain separate from each other in Omnimon, with the main body forming out of nowhere. Though I understand the point you're making with the Legend-Arms, as they could already change into their sword and shield forms without Jogressing.

My assumption is that Durandamon and Bryweludramon are unable to be wielded simultaneously under normal conditions. Perhaps, when they do try to combine their powers, it results in a Digimon specifically meant to be capable of using them both. If the Legendary Arms can't find a "chosen one" that can wield them both, they just create a "chosen one."

I love the way Kenji Watanabe draws flame Digimon, and th detail in this guy looks great and not too overdetailed. I'm happy we get to see Durandamon as a sword finally too.

I can't wait to read his profile for his lore but YongYoKyo's guess sounds right. He does have stylings similar to both lines but it's subtle, like a chest face and the symbols from Bryweludramon on his shoulder and mechanical details like Zubamon. And the flaming cape.I wonder if the red/gold is an intentional similarity to Alter S and Blitz/Rres. Same for the Dorumon Gem.
