Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02
A Digitamamon was first seen running a diner with Vegiemon as he forced Joe and Gomamon work off their bills as they lacked the only currency he would accept, American dollars in the Japanese version and Digi-Dollars in the English version, especially since Joe had the currency before it got stolen from him. Matt arrives to help Joe work off his bill and to ensure his safety when Digitamamon made a threat about "accidents" after DemiDevimon paid him to keep Matt from leaving. DemiDevimon also makes Matt think Joe is deliberately causing accidents to drive a wedge between, with Matt eventually losing this temper at Joe. When Tai, Agumon, T.K. and Patamon found them, Matt decides to leave. Digitamamon, knowing he'll lose money, grew large and attacked. Vegiemon grabbed T.K. and held him by his ankle; Joe daringly jumps on Veggiemon, which freed T.K. and proved his reliability. Matt was stunned at how Joe tried to protect T.K. even after he yelled at him. Matt's thought of friendship allowed Garurumon to Digivolve to WereGarurumon and sends Digitamamon flying.
Three years later, Digitamamon sets up a new restaurant near the lake where he ends up causing trouble for Yolei when she and her friends visited his establishment, with Mimi and Palmon appearing with Michael and Betamon to defuse the situation by paying the gang's bill. T.K. then recognized Digitamamon due to the circumstances being similar to the events that forced Joe and Matt to work for him. But Digitamamon explains that he became changed person from the ordeal and waives the bill with only Yolei skeptical that he turned over a new leaf.

But this time, he had an unseen Dark Spiral in his shell and it regressed him to his evil self. When Halsemon, Flamedramon and Digmon's attacks couldn't get through his shell, Mimi tried to convince Digitamamon that he wasn't evil, but Digitamamon tackled her. That made Yolei angry with her rant over trying to be sincere activated the Digi-Egg of Sincerity. Halsemon De-Digivolved to Hawkmon and became Shurimon. Shurimon used the shuriken on his back to keep Digitamamon's shell open as Pegasusmon and Nefertimon trapped him. Shurimon used his Double Star attack and destroyed the Dark Spiral, freeing Digitamamon from its influence.
