|“||In all of my radiant beauty, aren’t you impressed?||„|
|~ Calmaramon introducing herself.|
Ranamon (aka Calmaramon) is one of Cherubimon's henchmen and an antagonist in the anime Digimon Frontier. She is the only female of the Evil Hybrids. In Digimon Adventure:, she only appears as Calmaramon as a major antagonist who served as one of Devimon’s agents.
Ranamon is a Human-Hybrid Digimon that looks like a cute fish-girl whose innocent exterior hides her malevolent personality. She possesses fish-like flippers on her head and hips while her swimming cap and gauntlets resemble tadpoles. She may be beautiful and harmless on the outside, but on the inside, she has an evil side.
As Calmaramon, she is from cute to ugly. Her upper body portion of herself resembles a wicked sea witch. Her squid figure portion of her body is white and blue with red stripes, along with her tentacles, and 10 yellow eyes.
Although being evil, Ranamon disguises her evil for her cute innocent looks. But when angered, she pulls her evil look on her face. She is also bit of threatening, like when she tickled Tommy and Zoe to get them to talk, and almost killed J.P. with her Dark Vapor, but was rescued by Koji.
As Calmaramon, she is more threatening than her cute form.
Ranamon was created along with the other Evil Hybrids by Cherubimon to help him collect data to revive Lucemon. Ranamon, along with Grumblemon, Arbormon, and Mercurymon went to Seraphimon's castle in an attempt to recover Grumblemon's Beast Spirit, but failed. Seraphimon holds them back, but is defeated by Mercurymon and scanned his data. After Grumblemon was defeated in battle, Ranamon decided to take on the Digidestined herself. While Takuya, Zoe, and the others went in pursuit of the Toucanmon for stealing the D-Tectors (except Zoe's), Ranamon suddenly arrived on the scene. Zoe challenges her by Spirit-evolving to Kazemon. During the fight, Ranamon suddenly discovered her Beast Spirit, reclaimed it, and turned herself into Calmaramon, but was unable to control her Beast Spirit yet. While Takuya and the others were still attempting to find the Toucanmon, Ranamon confronts them again and defeats Kazemon, but then Zoe found her Beast Spirit and Spirit evolved into the beautiful Zephyrmon, which made Ranamon jealous. After Zephyrmon insulted Ranamon, she became angry and attempted to liquidate her by using Dark Vapor, but didn't work. Zephyrmon knocked Ranamon off her water turf, and got revenge by Slide-evolving to Calmaramon. Calmaramon however was still unable to control herself in defeat.
Later on, Zoe, J.P., and Tommy were taken hostage and Ranamon used tickling hands to torture Tommy and Zoe, making J.P. to force her to talk into where is Takuya and Koji. When J.P. said nothing, Ranamon attempted to liquidate J.P. with her Dark Vapor, until Lobomon came to their rescue. Ranamon (as Calmaramon) and Mercurymon engaged Lobomon into a fight, and Lobomon easily got beaten by Mercurymon. Takuya as Agunimon arrives at the scene, and attacks Ranamon. She and Mercurymon were then defeated by the Digidestined again.
While inside Sakakkumon, Ranamon discovers that Zoe is more prettier than her. She decides to order her Honeybeemon fans to trap her, but no avail. Ranamon then gives her Honeybeemon a nightmare producing apple and forces Zoe to take a bite out of it. Then Zoe becomes woozy and begins her nightmare. In her nightmare, Zoe’s friends deny her to join her for supper and tell her to go back to Italy, then they run off, leaving Zoe by lonesome. Zoe come face to face in their final battle, and bothare defeated and purified by Kazemon in the end.
Later, in the episode "Gleam Eggs And Scram", Ranamon and the other Hybrids reappeared and redeemed themselves by joined the heroes side to fight the Royal Knights.
After the destruction of Nidhoggmon, Devimon sends his agents Calmaramon, Velgemon, and SkullKnightmon to deal with the Digidestined. Calmaramon invades the network along with several Argomon Baby to hijack the main cruise on the ship. She uses her siren song to control all the Argomon Baby. She puts up a fight against Birdramon, Kabuterimon, Togemon and Ikakkumon while destroying the remaining Argomon, as well as knocking down Calmaramon with a single combined attack.
However, Calmaramon used her camouflage to catch Kabuterimon and Birdramon, and continues to attack them in her squid figure form. She also captures Ikkakumon and Togemon and uses her acidic ink in an attempt to destroy them. However, the remaining Digidestined in the Real World receive a message from Taichi to Digivolve their Digimon partners to their Ultimate forms, and they manage to destroy Calmaramon, along with Zudomon destroying the virus tower in the network, putting an end to the endangerment crisis on the captain’s ship for good.
