|~ DemiDevimon's final words as he is sucked in by Myotismon.|
DemiDevimon, also called PicoDevimon in Japanese version, is an evil Digimon in the Digimon anime. He also serves as one of the major antagonists in Digimon Adventure, and also a minor antagonist in Digimon Data Squad.
He was voiced by Kōki Miyata in the Japanese version, and by Derek Stephen Prince in the English dubbed version.
DemiDevimon is a Rookie Level Digimon that resembles a masked bat with crow's feet, and a skull on his mask.
DemiDevimon is a flunky that works for Myotismon.
He first appeared when he spotted T.K. and Tokomon. He originally worked for Etemon (though has never been seen during his arc and that this plotline is English Dub only), and pretended to be good when he met TK and Tokomon, when he was really working for Myotismon. DemiDevimon tries to trick T.K. by eating the mushrooms of forgetfulness to forget his brother, Matt completely, but it backfires thanks to Agumon listening to Sora’s warning of the mushrooms of forgetfulness. Agumon then told Tai and T.K. that DemiDevimon was trying to trick T.K. to eat the mushrooms of forgetfulness and poison him, thus lying all this time. Angered, T.K. digivolves Tokomon to Patamon to attack DemiDevimon, knocking him into the river.
The next episode, DemiDevimon tricks Joe, Gomamon, Matt and Gabumon to work endlessly at a restaurant owned by Digitamamon and Vegiemon (due to Joe not paying Vegiemon for the food he ate because he had real money and not DigiDollars). DemiDevimon is responsible for wrecking the dishes and giving Matt and Joe more weeks to work. Tai, T.K., Agumon and Patamon arrived suddenly to save them. Together, they defeated Digitamamon and Vegiemon, forcing DemiDevimon to retreat. Angered at DemiDevimon’s failure, Myotismon punishes him.
Later on, DemiDevimon lures Izzy and Tentomon with sludge signs, causing them to fall into a pit and enter Vademon’s pocket dimension, where Vademon tricks Izzy into giving up his curiosity and tag and crest. DemiDevimon makes a deal with Vademon to trade Izzy’s tag for some if his curiosity, but it fails and leads to an argument with the two. After Vademon was defeated by MegaKabuterimon, DemiDevimon was punished again by Myotismon by sending him up a tree.
After the Digidestined were defeated by Myotismon for the first time, he and DemiDevimon and his other minions invaded the Real World, on the quest to search for the 8th Digidestined (which is revealed to be Kari, Tai’s little sister).
After Myotismon’s body was destroyed by Angewomon, DemiDevimon resurrects his master by using his bats to absorb his other minions data and is revived as VenomMyotismon. But Myotismon, no longer needing his flunky, kills DemiDevimon by sucking him in his mouth and consuming him.
Digimon Data Squad
Three DemiDevimon appeared in the Real World along with a Vilemon. They went to the horse track to help a man named Tasuke Shiratori gain lots of money. The three DemiDevimon fought Agumon when Vilemon grew larger. After Vilemon was killed by GeoGreymon, the three DemiDevimon were killed by GeoGreymon as well.
- Demi Dart (Pico Dart in the Japanese version): Throwing syringes filled with a toxin, DemiDevimon uses them to poison his targets. Though the toxin is deadly only to humans, it can make Digimon fall ill.
- Bat Flutter: He uses his wings to slap his enemies.
- Evil Whisper (Demon's Whisper in the Japanese version): Hypnotises others into falling asleep while deceiving them with sweet-sounding lies.
This small Demon type Digimon takes on the form of a bat. They are often used by other demon Digimon of higher levels such as Devimon and Myotismon, but they are also said to be the instigators that enticed the once-Angel type Digimon Devimon and dragged him into the Dark Area. His offensive powers aren't so strong, but he is cunning and often plots evil deeds here and there. He likes darkness, but it is rare to actually see him alongside an upper-leveled Digimon. His special attack is "Pico Darts", which hurls big syringes at the opponent that take away their blood.
- DemiDevimon can Digivolve into Devimon, or Bakemon.
- Excluding the episode Sora's Crest of Love (due to the importance in the plot regarding Biyomon's weakened condition), all scenes of DemiDevimon using his Demi Dart attack were cut from the English dub of Digimon Adventure due to its close resemblance to an injection needle (also known as syringe) which are commonly associated with drugs. However, the Data Squad version had the attack resemble a laser based syringe instead.
- DemiDevimon is similar to two Disney henchmen, Fidget the Bat (The Great Mouse Detective) and Iago (Aladdin). Like Iago, DemiDevimon is loud and obnoxious, has three talons (two at the front and one at the back), but he stays loyal to Myotismon to the bitter end, while Iago turned to Aladdin's side. Like Fidget, DemiDevimon is like a bat, is bumbling, very annoying to those around him, especially his master, and despite loyalty, he is killed by him.
- His other name and appearance are derived from "Piccolo" (Italian: "small"), or pico.
