About a month and a half ago, the official Digimon site put up a poll for people to vote for their favorite Digimon who had appeared in an anime in any form. After half a month since it clsoed, we finally have the results.

The poll question was...
Q- Digimon Adventure: begins broadcasting on April 5th. Please tell us your favorite Digimon among all the Digimon that have appeared in the various animated TV shows and movies.
*Please have your answer only be the Digimon name.


The results they gave were for the top 10.

Number 1 was, as expected, Omegamon.





Number 2 was WarGreymon.




Number 3 was Dukemon.




Number 4 was Beelzebumon.




Number 5 was Agumon.




Number 6 was Alphamon




Number 7 was Paildramon.




Number 8 was Terriermon.




Number 9 was V-Mon.




Number 10 was Patamon.




The most recent 'major' survey of most popular Digimon was the Famitsu survey from 2015. It gave the results up to 30, but the top 10 were quite similar to the new one:
1- Omegamon
2- WarGreymon
3- Dukemon
4- Beelzebumon
5- Alphamon
6- Agumon
7- Terriermon
8- Mugendramon
9- Patamon
10- Magnamon

The 2015 survey is, as far as we know, the one that gets brought up occasionally by Bandai staff as Omegamon seemingly getting double the votes of second place.


The current poll up on Digimon Web is for favorite movie/special/etc. and it closes in roughly 2 weeks.

this is all very expected and feels like very surface level picks for the franchise but even then I can't help but think "good taste".
I guess I just really like all these designs myself ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ even though my personal list would look very different

I guess the majority of the people still aren't tired of omegamon yet.

Surprised to see Paildramon instead of Imperialdramon. And Patamon. Hope they give him more new forms to catch up with Tailmon.

Seeing Omegamon on 1st place shocked me because I assumed Greymon or Agumon will get 1st place. But... No MetalGarurumon or Gabumon?!

If you had told me about the absence of any Garuru- species and angels, and the expected, dreaded win of Omegamon, I'd have guessed that I wouldn't like the rest of the results, but it turns out everything else looks good to me!
Seeing preference for Dukemon, Beelzebumon and Paildramon in particular is bringing me so much joy.

I really think they should do another alternative poll without those top 10 digimon...

I'm assuming the results were only from Japan? Or is this worldwide?

Meh. An uninspiring yet unsurprising list. Paildramon instead of Imperialdramon is the only surprise imo.

Just to add, I voted from Canada with no problems. I voted for Agumon Bond of Courage though, so I'm assuming my vote was folded into generally being "Agumon" lol.

This is a very cool list, all things considered, it's more or less the mascot Digimon of the earliest points of the franchise. For an anime poll, that's just about what I'd expect. Dukemon heading up the next booster set of the card game definitely makes sense looking at this list.

Wow this was pretty lackluster. There’s so many cool digimon out there. I guess we’ll never move on from Adventure at this point

Anyone could vote. I voted Lillymon using her Japanese name

I always wonder what the splits are on polls like these when it comes to Japan vs. the rest of the world.

Pretty cool to see Dukemon and Beelzebumon up there as well. Wonder if this bodes well for a Tamers sequel eventually. It'd also be nice to see them give more love to Dukemon's other variants, namely ChaosDukemon and MedievalDukemon in terms of anime appearances.

Yeah I wish this website separate the votes from Japan and others so I can see whose certain ones have highest popularity.

Was Renamon mentioned below 10th place? Or only tenth to first place got mentioned that's it?

Pretty expected list overall, though I'm pretty surprised Paildramon got on here. It was definitely a highlight of the Jogress evolutions and easily my favorite of the three, but I hear so much more about Magnamon and Imperialdramon that I thought if any of Veemon's line would appear on here it would be those two (or Ulforceveedramon if we extend to other media).

That said, I wish they did a Top 30 or so like the Famitsu article since Digimon has a large cast of monsters and it would be interesting to see if there were any underdogs like Dorugoramon on the latter list.

I thought Renamon would be in but overall this isn't a very surprising list.

I'm surprised to see Veemon here over Renamon.

That many people love Paildramon? What the actual hell? Thought I was alone.
I love how gnarly and mutant he looks, even if by today's standards it's apex fan-wank design.

It's one of those designs that just manages to balance the two together well. XV-Mon dons Stingmon's features but both still get their designs pumped with some 'next-stage' steroids, so XV-mon grows an extra set of (weird) wings, Stingmon's spikes grow out and sharpen more. Particularly love its bizarre head design too. It skirts very close to being neither XV-mon, nor Stingmon.
Still wish Paildramon (and really, the 02 Digimon in general) would get X-Antibody designs already.

Silphymon and Shakkoumon experimented in interesting ways with fusing designs too. Silphymon went with allocating Gatomon and Aquillamon to top and bottom respectively, and cleverly mixing strands of Gatomon's Angewomon stage in. Shakkoumon goes for cultural/religious hybrid, fusing Ankylomon's earth-y/ground aspects with Angemon's faith to make a pottery/masonry inspired design.

It's why I found Xros Wars entire namesake to be a wash, disappointingly. There wasn't any elegance in the designs, just lasso-tool swapping bits out in Photoshop and passing it onto the animators.
