Bakemon is a Ghost Digimon whose name and design are derived from the mythological Obake. It is a wicked Digimon born from the Dark Area. As a Ghost Digimon, its Level is low, but because its body is composed of a fiendish virus program, it's said that computers it possesses are pulverized in a flash. Everything underneath its cloth-like is wrapped in mystery, and this Digimon is so mysterious that it is rumored that a portion of the shadow of its true form is a black hole. Because its fighting strength isn't great, it doesn't attack directly, but is instead an expert in indirect attacks employing curses or magical power.
