Time for a new MonMon Memo! MonMon Memo 78 is a preview of Titan of Dust, which comes out in the Dim Card Set next week with Infinite Tide. Then we also get our first look at a new Dim Card case.



The text below uses the machine translation from the official site due to lack of time. We will see about swapping it out when/if there is time for a proper translation.

I have cleaned up a small handful of terms that translated poorly or swapped terms around, but not otherwise cleaned up grammar, etc.

Mini Gottsumon is right, it looks almost exactly like the original Gottsumon Sprite from the Digmon Pendulum.

Meh.
Vulturemon doesn't tell me much. It's also another Bird-man Perfect, so I'm sure someone won't appreciate that.

The babies... I don't dislike their design per se, but it's their existence that gets me off. With PenZ I thought they were finally going back to what made Digimon shine and be different from any other monster franchise: the potential. Sunarizamon is a good example of this: you can see quite clearly it could evolve in Golemon, but also in Tortamon and so on.
I also liked how there were few babies, very different from each other (even in the same line), that could evolve in many ways. Look at Poyomon > Tokomon > Patamon > Bakemon. It makes sense because Patamon resembles Tokomon, but Bakemon resembles Poyomon. It's like a dormant trait re-emerged in evolution.
Creating so many babies very specific for certain Digimon just consolidates single evo lines, making Digimon a Pokémon rip-off with too many redundant stages.

To me, Gotsumon was really ok evolving from Mochimon; it's a hardening process: Bubbmon (a slime) gets a little more solid in Mochimon (but still quite elastic) and then gets even more solid (as a rock!) as Gotsumon.

Vulturemon's gun not being literally a Desert Eagle is kind of a missed opportunity, but oh well.

(Also, "Desert Deathscythe"? That already exists, it's called Sandrock, don't be redundant!)

Oh yeah it’s about time that we got another bird ultimate, and these babies should have been made years ago.

I already know I posted about Vulturemon in other topics but I really wanna say about his sniper design that is genius lol

Sniper weapon with the bipod equipment. But in Digimon? You freaking get the Scythe hooks to equip along with the bipod accessory! Sniper ammo? Nah let's equip up the hourglass instead! For no reasons! I suppose the ammo is that... "Sand"? lol

Look like he is very thin under the heavy costume. Having kneecap shield with skull and the shoulder pad with spikes, even the skull helmet with odd shape making it like Bird version of WereGarurumon for this desert just like Entmon being created in similar way with SkullGreymon for the forest...

I like the Mineral type Babies design to welcome because Slime type Babies doesn't suit the desert very so much that's why I'm quite satisfied with Mineral Babies because, like others said. Sand version of Bubbmon and new evo for Gottsumon! But it oddly got the tail that doesn't seem to be rocky. The desert is the harshest land to live.

Desert sniper digimon is freaking epic! I wonder if being big like Cannondramon in Adventure 2020, would that defeat the purpose of being "camouflage"? Being that so huge figure in the desert is surely easy to get spotted...

Anybody feel this Vulturemon is giving off Mummymon vibes somewhat...?

Vulturemon is one of those designs that looks neat the first second you see it but then with every following second it just falls further and further apart.
You can see a neat concept shining through that was kind of weirdly compromised more and more until everything ended up as a design that cares about appealing to edgy 13 year olds and not much else.

A military sniper vulture with some cyborg elements... there's some nice possibilities here.
But no, they had to go all in on "Reaper" for some reason (even though we already have plenty of designs inspired by that same concept) and they had to go for the most in-your-face literal design elements you could think of even if it does not make sense in the context of the rest of the design.
Where is the creativity here? Where is the integration? It's just "what things are associated with the term Reaper" and then they just glued those things onto him randomly.

The hourglass magazine clashes with the modern look of the rest of the weapon. If there was a hint of steampunk or a more spohisticated craftsmanship in any other aspect of the design it might have worked, but with the entire concept going more for a rugged pragmatic angle it just looks severely out of place.

And tiny double scythes at the tripod... the idiocy should be obvious to anyone. Note that getting anyone in range for these things would involve getting them into a position where they could literally just extend their arm and grab the barrel of the gun without much risk. Maybe they grow during the attack but that still doesn't make it that much better.
What's even funnier is that the knife on his side is a Bayonet. If he managed to attach that at the end of his rifle (although I don't think the mounting system would really work) that would already work better than his special attack probably does.

So yeah, the weapon is a complete mess awkwardly joining fantasy weirdness and down to earth weaponry in a super clumsy fashion. It just doesn't work.
In contrast, the design of Alphamon Ouryuken's sword is idiotic but at least it's a bizarro fantasy design all the way through. It's not a bunch weird fantasy elements attached to the base of an otherwise reasonable twelfth century longsword or anything like that.

But they were still not done, because you can't be a reaper without skulls, so they just slapped on WereGarurumon's skull and crossbones patch and then they put another skull on his head for good measure.
The second skull at least blends in a but the skull patch just looks completely random because nothing else about him is really similar to WereGarurumon (besides the general concept of pants, everything seems to be more a play on Garudamon). It worked on WereGarurumon because of his general street fighter look, because the sort of people that would in reality wear weird ripped jeans would also not shy away from some obnoxious skull fashion statement, but plastered on an otherwise very practical looking military outfit... it's a pointless forced contrast for the sake of a pointless forced reference.

And then someone probably complained about the desert camo not being colorful enough for some reason and now he' s got bright red feathers that look way too big to be covered with his cloak and that awful lime green cactus shoulder pad. It's already annoying when you have those weird elements that are pointless. It's even worse when they actually unbalance and hurt the look of the rest of the outfit.
I mean bright green! paired with camouflage! It's cactus themed, sure but from a distance you'd just see a bright green blob hovering above the sand. It doesn't look like a cactus until you take a closer look and something that makes you want to get a closer look at it is pretty much to the opposite of camouflage.

In summary it's a promising concept that halfway through just turned into the design equivalent of a faceplant.
There is so much about it that looks silly and completely forced, weird gimmicks that seem like they were cheaply pasted on at the last moment.

Overall this designed feels like they lost the balance they managed to strike with the Pendulum Z designs, where we had monsters like Entmon and Regalecusmon that looked fierce and complex while at the same time sticking to a coherent theme without going overboard with dissonant details.

Titan of Dust is shaping up to be my favorite Dim out of the ones announced so far! I hope the unlock ultimate form is something worth being excited about.

We've been really lacking in Virus birds, so Vulturemon's a welcome addition. I also like the idea of a Gotsumon Baby (even if it's being introduced for SunaLizamon, which ironically more closely resembles the BabyI, but they're both nice all the same).

Now we are all entitled to our opnions but I don't think I could disagree more with this post if I tried, in fact, the only thing I agree is that the scythe is a little silly, but that's about it. But let's go into parts.
A military sniper vulture with some cyborg elements... there's some nice possibilities here.

But no, they had to go all in on "Reaper" for some reason (even though we already have plenty of designs inspired by that same concept)

The reason Vulturemon is a reaper, is, in fact, because he's a vulture, an animal that goes after dead things. It literally writtes itself. And about we already having enough reaper based designs, I would actually agree with you... If we were talking about MetalPhantomon, which is literally just Phantomon but edgier. Vulture looks completely different from all the many (4) reaper digimon, first for being a birdman and second for using a gun as his main weapon.
The hourglass magazine clashes with the modern look of the rest of the weapon. If there was a hint of steampunk or a more spohisticated craftsmanship in any other aspect of the design it might have worked, but with the entire concept going more for a rugged pragmatic angle it just looks severely out of place.

The hourglass magazine looks out of place only if your only association with them is as an ancient clock. First there's the fact that Vulturemon uses sand to attack and the hourglass is a simple and creative way of showing that, but they are also a common motif in Memento Mori art:
iu

Something that goes right back to the death concept in a pretty clever way and novel way.
And tiny double scythes at the tripod... the idiocy should be obvious to anyone.

Fair point, it does look kinda dumb.
But they were still not done, because you can't be a reaper without skulls, so they just slapped on WereGarurumon's skull and crossbones patch and then they put another skull on his head for good measure.

There are plenty of unrelated digimon that share a skull motif in some part of their, like: Dokugumon, Ogremon, Wizardmon, etc. So I don't know what the big deal here is...
The second skull at least blends in a but the skull patch just looks completely random because nothing else about him is really similar to WereGarurumon.
Oh really, there's nothing else similar about WereGarurumon here? That's funny because if we put them side by side, we learn that...
vul_by_industrialpanic_delbrn4-fullview.jpg

THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY MEANT TO LOOK SIMILAR!?!
Come on, is like saying there is nothing else similar about BanchoLeomon and the other bancho other than their coats.
And then someone probably complained about the desert camo not being colorful enough for some reason and now he' s got bright red feathers that look way too big to be covered with his cloak and that awful lime green cactus shoulder pad. It's already annoying when you have those weird elements that are pointless. It's even worse when they actually unbalance and hurt the look of the rest of the outfit.

I get not liking the cactus shoulder pad, it could definitely afford to be a darker more muted colour, but the feathers? They match really well with the rest of the design and offer a nice contrast with the more washed colours of the camo gear. Vulturemon would look a lot less interesting if they were any other shade.
In summary it's a promising concept that halfway through just turned into the design equivalent of a faceplant.
There is so much about it that looks silly and completely forced, weird gimmicks that seem like they were cheaply pasted on at the last moment.

Well, as this post has probably shown, I disagree. Vulturemon is a very cohesive and well thought out design, but for each their own I suppose.

Monsters having random shit on them for no reason is like Digimon's main thing. So many belts.
