Bakemon is a Ghost Digimon. 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.
- Zombie Claw (Hell's Hand): Pulls the captured enemy all the way to hell.
- Evil Charm (Death Charm): Casts a powerful death spell on the opponent which is said to bring annihilation within five turns unless they are the possessor of a tenacious spirit. This technique is not possessed by Bakemon of File Island.
- Ghost Chop: Attacks using small chops.
- Poison Breath: Blows out poisonous smoke.
Bakemon is a levitating ghost covered in a white cloth that hides its true form, leaving only its mouth filled with sharp teeth to be seen.
