Villain Overview

So I'm a clown? Then I'll act like one.
~ Piedmon

Piedmon (also known as Piemon in the Japanese version) is the secondary antagonist in Digimon Adventure 01. He is the incredibly powerful leader of the four Dark Masters and the most devoted follower of Apocalymon. Piedmon had the power of psychokinesis, to mentally control the swords on his back. He could also take on many shapes, seen in his first confrontation with the DigiDestined. He had the power to change other objects, including humans and other Digimon, into key chains. He also appeared to have telekinesis; for instance, he once remotely attacked Greymon while Tai and Izzy were being pursued by the armies of fellow Dark Master Machinedramon. He is the fourth arch-nemesis of the Digidestined.

He was voiced by Derek Stephen Prince in the English version, who also voiced DemiDevimon, Digitamamon, Impmon, Grumblemon and Beelzemon. Derek Stephen Prince also voiced Elgar and Vexen. In the Japanese version, he was voiced by the late Chikao Ohtsuka, who also voiced Apocalymon, Master Xehanort, Doctor Eggman, Professor Gerald Robotnik and Doctor Cid.

Appearance

Piedmon is a Mega Level Virus Digimon that resembles a magical demonic clown with four swords that he carries on his back.

Powers and Abilities

Piedmon is skilled with magic and disguises, as shown when he disguised himself as a circus clown, and shooting electricity from his fingers and reflecting attacks from his opponents. He can also throw his four swords accurately at high speed at his opponents. He also has the power to turn humans and Digimon into key chains.

Biography

Digimon Adventure 01

The deadliest of the Dark Masters, Piedmon was their leader and probably has the most extensive history of all the Digimon the DigiDestined faced. He was around before the DigiDestined came to the Digital World to begin with and before the DigiDestined's Digimon were born, a product of Apocalymon's influence. Piedmon knew of the plot by Gennai and his followers to bring the DigiDestined into the Digital World to save it. With an army of Guardromon and Mekanorimon, he attempted to steal the DigiDestined's arsenal. However, he was unable to get to them when Gennai charged forward and attacked him. The Dark Master in turn placed an orb into Gennai's back. Gennai took the Digi-Eggs and flew off with them in a Mekanorimon. With the exception of Gatomon's Digi-Egg and Digivice, that dropped somewhere on the Continent of Server (which explained why she wasn't with the rest of the Digimon), Gennai succeeded in taking the remaining Digi-Eggs and the seven Digivices to File Island. However, Piedmon obtained the Crests and Tags, giving them to Devimon to hide. Devimon hid the Tags in the Net Ocean while he scattered the eight Crests everywhere in the Continent of Server.

When the DigiDestined did eventually arrive in the DigiWorld, their battles wound up bringing them back to Earth, to stop the plans of Myotismon. In the years (of DigiWorld time) that they were away, Piedmon, and the other Dark Masters - MetalSeadramon, Puppetmon and Machinedramon - rose up and conquered the digital world, reformatting it's digital matter into the massive Spiral Mountain. At the mountain's peak was Piedmon's base of operations - an observatory-like building, from which he could observe all goings on across Spiral Mountain. When the DigiDestined returned to the DigiWorld, the Dark Masters all attacked them at once. WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon battled Piedmon, but he cut them down with his Trump Sword attack. He then threw a dagger at Mimi, irritated by her whining, but Chuumon leapt in front of it, sacrificing himself. Piximon then showed up, and distracted the Dark Masters long enough for the kids to escape.

Clown turning into Piedmon.

After returning to the Digital World, when the DigiDestined first encountered Piedmon in the form of a clown, narrating their impending doom before revealing himself. From there, he easily defeated WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon because he had far more experience. Before confronting the Digidestined, he sent his servant LadyDevimon to kill them, who failed. He fought them and nearly killed WarGreymon, but Matt and Garurumon showed and healed WarGreymon. Because he saved himself for the end, MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon were able to gain experience from their fights with the other three Dark Masters and back him into a corner. To avoid a losing-battle with them, he turned them, along with Andromon (who was able to put up a good fight despite being outmatched) and the other DigiDestined (except for Mimi, Lillymon, Kari, T.K. and Angemon) into inanimate key chains. He was briefly held off by Angemon, but then sent T.K and Kari off a cliff by cutting a rope they were holding on to. However, T.K was able to Digivolve Angemon into MagnaAngemon, who easily beat Piedmon, plunging him off the cliff, and MagnaAngemon turned everyone back to normal.

Piedmon's defeat.

Not admitting defeat, Piedmon survived the fall from the cliff and summons several Vilemon to attack the heroes, but Mimi, Lillymon and her Digimon allies showed up on time and take down the Vilemon with ease. MagnaAngemon opens the Gate Of Destiny and the remaining Vilemon were banished and imprisoned. WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon, and MagnaAngemon finally defeat Piedmon for good by banishing and imprisoning him into the Gate of Destiny with no hope to escape and return. With Piedmon defeated, the Dark Masters’ control over the Digital World has ended for good.

It is unclear as to whether the Gate of Destiny destroys its victims or seals them away; if the latter, Piedmon presumably perished along with the rest of Apocalymon's creations when Apocalymon was destroyed.

Digimon Adventure Tri

Piedmon is seen again only in a flashback in Digimon Adventure Tri: Loss, where he and the other Dark Masters attacked Maki Himekawa and her Digimon partner, Megadramon. The other four Ultimate Digimon became the Four Holy Beasts and gave Megadramon their power to defeat Piedmon and the other Dark Masters.

Profile

An elusive Demon Man type Digimon who is shrouded in mystery and appeared suddenly one day. There are a lot of mysteries surrounding Demon Man types, and since Demon and Undead type Digimon are basically beings from another reality, their true forms are totally misunderstood. It is unknown as to why he appeared and for what purpose, and so far there has never been a suitable method for clarifying any theories. However, he bears strong and matchless powers, and when anyone encounters Piedmon, the only fate he might have in store for anyone is his curse. His special attack is "Trump Sword", an inescapable technique which teleports the four swords from the "Magic Box" on his back and uses them to stab the enemy.

Attacks

  • Trump Sword: Teleports its four swords, causing them to skewer the opponent in the following instant.
  • Clown Trick: Does various magical effects including transformations, disguises, or reflecting an opponent's attack back.
  • Masks Square: Creates a field in which all communications can be read by it and allows it to teleport itself and its attacks anywhere at will.
  • Ending Snipe: Unleashes magical electricity from both hands and electrocutes opponents.

Quotes

How small they look from here, like ants. Strange that such little creatures could cause so much trouble.
~ Piedmon
How delightfully entertaining this is! I always get so excited before tragedy strikes!
~ Piedmon
Well, hello there boys and girls, and welcome! Today I'm going to tell you an amazing story. Once upon a time there were eight DigiDestined. They went with their Digimon companions to try to save the world. The children and their Digimon discovered that in order for them to do it, they'd have to travel to the top of Spiral Mountain. But to their dismay, the Dark Masters beat them. So sad.
~ Piedmon telling a story he created with his own imagination, while disguised as an ordinary clown.
Hello, my name is Izzy and I'm very smart. Although I didn't know how to stop me and my friends from being turned into keychains. Haha! I love a good puppet show!
~ Piedmon
What's the matter? Don't want to play with uncle Piedmon anymore? Trump Sword!
~ Piedmon
Who would like to the first to be destroyed? Oh, come now, don't tell me you have stage fright?
~ Piedmon
So you want to play hide-and-go-seek, hmm? Okay, I love a good game. Now, let’s see, if I were a little pest, where would I hide, hmm? Maybe you’re in this room over here.
~ Piedmon
Olly olly oxen free!
~ Piedmon
In order to succeed, sometimes you have to step on people along the way.
~ Piedmon
I must quit this, it costs me a fortune in new doors.
~ Piedmon
I'm not a sicko, I'm a collector, and these new items are of such sentimental value to me.
~ Piedmon, about Tai, Matt, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon, responding to Sora when she asks what kind of sicko turns people into keychains.
Most impressive. Trump Sword!
~ Piedmon's last words before being blasted into the Gate of Destiny.
