BanchoLeomon is a Beast Man Digimon. It lives faithfully only to the "Justice" in which it trusts. It is said that only Digimon who continue to emerge victorious in battles with fierce champions, without their spirit being "broken", are able to acquire the title of "Bancho", and in the recorded history of the Digital World, only five Digimon which possess this title have been confirmed. As it is a boss that only serves its own "Justice", if something becomes an obstacle to that "Justice", it will see them as "Evil", even if they are a being like the Royal Knights or the Celestial Digimon, and they will become an enemy that it has to eliminate. The "Gaku-Ran" (GAKU-RAN) worn over its shoulders is endowed with a defensive function that negates 89.9% of the opponent's physical strikes. It wields its prided tantō, "Otokodama" (男魂? lit. "Man's Soul").[10]

Attacks

  • Lion Slash[11] (獅子羅王漸 Shishiraouzan?, lit. "Lion King Slash"): Unleashes an attack from the Otokodama.
  • Flash Bancho Punch[12] (Flash Bantyo Punch): Releases a fist packed with fighting spirit honed to its utmost limit.
  • Chivalry (男気 Otokogi?, lit. "Chivalry"): Strikes the ground to create a shockwave attack.
  • Burning Bantyo Punch (Burn Bantyo Punch): A powerful punch with a burning soul.
  • Otokodama

Design

BanchoLeomon is a humanoid lion who have been styled after the modern Banchō, a particular type of juvenile delinquent. The characters on the GAKU-RAN are a quote of Siddhārtha Gautama's according to Buddhist belief which read "I alone am honored in heaven and on earth." (天上天下唯我独尊 Tenjou tenge yuiga dokuson?).
