Caturamon is an Exalted Beast Digimon whose name is derived from the mythological Catura. It is the "Dog" Deva, and serves the Digimon Sovereign Baihumon. As a follower of Baihumon, it looks after its fellow followers Makuramon and Sinduramon as if they were its younger brothers (as for those two, it appears they do not feel the same degree of obligation). Its sense of justice is strong, and it is unsatisfied when it can't make something clear in black-and-white. When all of its comrades are quarreling, it will sometimes serve as a moderator or presiding judge, changing into the "Bǎo Chuí" (宝鎚? lit. "Treasure Hammer"), which is itself as a gigantic hammer, and passing judgment over guilt and innocence.

- Śwabhojana: Generates a massive earthquake accompanied by a shock wave by striking the ground with the Bǎo Chuí.
- Bǎo Chuí (宝鎚? lit. "Treasure Hammer")
- Howl of the Heavens: Releases a supersonic howl that can shatter barriers.
