I was thinking about Millenniummon lately and really a lot. Until something clicked inside my head... New headcanon.

Cherubimon often shown having lightning attacks in any anime/game/card appearances but never mentioned about the mysterious gravity powers that Cherubimon Vice used in the movie.

I kinda oddly thought Cherubimon in that movie was given Gravity powers by the "Virus" that might be "Millenniummon" may installed the "seed" to spread. Gravity is not that Dark Hole power. It's more of... Gravitational Time Dilation thingy.

But it's not Millenniummon granted it just merely putting a seed that gets little power from his Time/Space manipulation abilities and Cherubimon happened to strengthened it so hard due to how "paranoid" he is along with "mysterious virus" infection.

So you know how the Data Ultimates in the original Pendulums were only obtained through Jogress? Does anyone else think that was actually incorporated into some of their designs? I mean, MetalSeadramon is an obvious evolution of MegaSeadramon, but its armor seems like it might've been based off of Anomalocarimon. Griffomon was based off the bird-like Delumon, but its tail makes me think a lot about Blossomon. I might be stretching it with Boltmon, but I could see it being an Ultimate Meramon that took in some of Pumpmon's Halloween monster theme (Frankenstein's monster in this case).

Not much can be said about the other Pendulums. SaberLeomon was just a carry-over from Ver.S (Triceramon at least looks somewhat similar in stature, but I'm not seeing how it could relate to Piccolomon at all), and Rosemon was a carry-over from Digital Card Battle. I have no idea where Plesiomon originally came from prior to its inclusion to the .5 (nor Hangyomon for that matter), though I'm guessing it wasn't made with Jogress in mind (though it does bear some similarities to MegaSeadramon). Meanwhile, Metal Empire and Virus Busters both just incorporated anime Digimon (and Digimon World's final boss) for their Ultimates.

some of the others also work

Okuwamon (grey armour) and ShogunGekomon (bipedal, musical) evolve into MetalEtemon (grey armoured musical biped)

HolyAngemon (arm mounted sword) and Angewomon (arm mounted ranged weapon) evolve into Omegamon (has a sword on one arm and a ranged weapon on the other)

you already mentioned SkullMeramon, Pumpkinmon and Boltmon, but I’ll point out that Pumpkinmon has an axe in its head and Boltmon has one on its back

Is it just me, or did the size of Tailmon's Holy Ring increase significantly in most of its artwork post-02?

It's almost like they REALLY wanna emphasize that, yep, it's wearing the thing, it's at full power. Funnily enough, its Ver.S and Pendulum 1.5 profiles make no mention of the ring, so prior to 02 giving it an excuse to have Tailmon downgraded (and Adventure briefly having it awaken Devidramon), it really did just seem like a pointless decoration.

I've been thinking about Meicoomon, or more specifically Raguelmon and Ordinemon proper. Mainly in that design-wise, the latter two are based on Furies from mythology, and I'd say Ordinemon more so on Nemesis with the latter emphasizing Divine Retribution/Wrath (Ophanimon Falldown Mode complicates this, as she likewise fits the bill. Perhaps Raguelmon and Ophanimon Falldown Mode are both Furies, with their fusion giving rise to Nemesis?). On the flipside, Rasielmon would appear to be a combination of Themis, Dike, and Astraea. Themis for her ability to see the future, and Dike and Astraea for a more balanced form of justice tempered by mercy(Dike/Astraea)/harmony(Eunomia)/peace (Eirene).

Simply put, or not so simply, because Greek mythology is overly complicated in some respects,this is my long-winded way of establishing Meico as the honorary wielder of the tenth crest, Justice. Meicoomon is able to go between both forms, making her erratic in so far as partners are concerned. But that said, I also posit that her crest, when Ordinemon was unburdened of all the additional data, was allowed to be purified and catalyze the birth of Omnimon Merciful Mode, by uniting the other crests with hers. This brings about a bit of a dilemma in so far as where Ken would fit into this, but alas, Ken seems to just possess a crest with no real purpose.

At some point, Wallace becomes the single most powerful Chosen in the world after his two partners eventually unlock their Ultimate forms (SaintGalgomon and Cherubimon) - not without significant growth on his part as a person, however.

In Hurricane Touchdown, at some point between the train stopping and reuniting with the others, Homeostasis spoke through Kari. Given the imbalance Kokomon was undoubtedly causing to space time, she offered them a short burst of energy that they could use to reach Mega, and empower the Golden Digimentals.

Regardless if you're going by the Dub continuity or the Japanese, Kokomon got rebooted during Tri, which is how he came back in Kizuna.

The Frontier OVA took place after the Burgermon episode. Seraphimon's Egg has temporarily shrunk for some reason.

I like this.

But it makes me question how the writers could get away with basically the same story in Tri.

The royal knight dukemon is the same as the one that governs vortex warriors over in witchelny by turning into medievildukemon.

But sadly that will never become real because the one that governs vortex warriors has x antibody :(

This is pretty heavily implied though, just with Dukemon X

Hahaha, I can just imagine him unlocking SaintGalgomon after a round of desperate soul-searching leads him to stop being a Mama's Boy.

I've toyed with the idea that Adventure Tailmon has powers via her Holy Ring that she doesn't know how to use because Vamdemon's training specifically developed her into a physical fighter and forced any mystic aptitude to decay.

Yeah I know which manga you talking about but there are alot of things that don't make sense to me.

My new headcanon. Remembered how Devimon praised Nidhoggmon's death for the sake of advancing that goal?

What if Eyesmon "volunteered" to trap the chosen kids? For the unknown experiment? Besides given the rapid evolution from Orochimon to Nidhoggmon?

What if Millenniummon was actually sent to this world unknowingly being used as "Ultimate Weapon" from other universe but died in FURIOUS WAR and because of his death left the world much greater scars but at same time it gave birth to "Millenniummon cult" who worshipped his evilness/power after witnessed its godly powers and that cult was given chance to revive him by that "Creator" and the cult happily joined the dark side?

What if Millenniummon directly imprisoned all the chosen ones excluded Taichi/Agumon just because he was given "task" by "him" to execute its experiment series but he rejected it at instantly in full rage due to his death and he had no time to blah in villain monologues only look down on "ants" by swatting so hard without relying on his time/space powers, just brute force that is enough to roflstomp the world?!

What if Zanbamon was actually completely unrelated to the "Great Catastrophe" just normal war something Digimon loves to conquer?

What if Burpmon was selected oddly to sent in to destroy the evidence unknowingly but Sephirotmon's data history clearly proved Burpmon is too dumb to realize and it's easy to move him without efforts just let him do stuff and no one will able to stop him? Not really part of the dark side army?

I can think of many possibilities for that! This brings joy to my knowledge!

In my wine-cellar. Thanks, Kingbeemon.
The series version of Ra takes the same form as the YGO one, due to using the WDoR pages as a template. "AmunRamon" and other Egyptian god Digimon have their own Digital World, similar to the Olympians in the Illiad.

What does WDoR stand for?
The "Winged Dragon of Ra". A monster from the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise based on the Egyptian deity Amun-Ra.

That said, I don't know if I'd agree that YGO has enough cultural significance to in-universe affect the birth of this hypothetical AmunRamon, in the same vein as Loch Ness Monster and Plesiomon though. I feel like it'd be more believable if it was just directly based on Egyptian myth, from a researchers computer leaking data into the Digitial World or whatever. :unsure:

I'm sure that the God Cards, especially amongst people who were kids back when DM aired, are definitely of big cultural significance.

If you had one of the three, you were the biggest man on the world. No questions asked.

(They'd probably not turn Sphere Mode and Phoenix Mode into a Mode though. U-unless-)

I think I get what Rohan means but it's difficult to word.
GranDracmon was a good example with the character of Dracula transcending Brahm Stoker's work and being much more of a pop culture icon than a licensed one meanwhile the Egyptian God Cards are so tied to Yu-Gi-Oh's franchise that within Digimon's universes they could probably only make vague references to it as it's not old enough to be seen more as public domain icons rather than Konami's property

In my mind, Ken gained his Crest of Kindness sometime before the events of Millenniumon's defeat - it was given to him by the Agents as a means to fight evil. However the planting of the Seed within his neck led his Kaiser persona to never activate it, and instead he only ever ended up using it as a power source to fuel his base.

And since the forces of the Light were responsible for creating it, this is why the Four Holy Beasts knew how to transform it into a different item (the Digimental of Miracles) from afar to help bring about the Kaiser's downfall.
