Diaboromon is the result of Infermon sucking up all the data of the network into a force of terrible strength, having power well beyond that of most Mega Digimon, he is the final antagonist for both the first and second series. Infermon hacked into a United States military computer and began launching nuclear missiles around the world, starting with Japan and, in the dubbed version, Colorado to kill the DigiDestined. When WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon began to overwhelm him, he digi-volved into Diaboromon, nearly killing both Patamon and Tentomon. However, when Tai's computer froze, WarGreymon was disabled, and MetalGarurumon was easily defeated by Diaboromon. He then cloned himself and made well over a million copies of himself. At that moment, Tai and Matt entered the Internet through their computers, reviving their Digimon, who DNA Digivolved into Omnimon. Omnimon destroyed all of his copies, but the remaining Diaboromon was too quick for Omnimon's cannons. Izzy forwarded emails to Diaboromon, causing him to lag, and Omnimon seemingly destroys him by impaling his head, disabling the clock of the missiles impact stored in his head. In the dubbed version, the virus that infected him would go onto to infect one of Willis's true partners, Kokomon.
However, Diaboromon had in fact survived from the previous battle and, during the late spring of 2003 (in Revenge of Diaboromon), he created billions of Kuramon that entered the Real World. Omnimon went back into the Internet to deal with him again and, with some help from Angemon and Angewomon (who held him down), Omnimon blew off his head and he was destroyed for good. But Diaboromon intended that so that he could live on in his Kuramon as they had all escaped to the Real World through various electronic devices and eventually fused to become Armageddemon.

The name "Diaboromon" refers only to the first Mega form of this Digimon. Throughout the series, Diaboromon takes a number of different forms, each with a different name and special attack. Diaboromon, however, is the form he most recognized in.
In the Japanese version of Our War Game!, Kuramon's Digi-Egg formed on the Internet from a collection of viruses and is unrelated to Willis.
Kuramon hatched from a Digi-Egg that had formed on the Internet from a collection of viruses. In the dubbed version, it was instead hatched from a Digi-Egg that Willis created which was subsequently infected by a virus. Kuramon's mere presence on the internet wreaked havoc—phones stopped working and people were unable to board trains. Tai described him as "A cross between a jellyfish and a contact lens". This Digimon spoke in window messages, with its first word being "Hello!"
In Revenge of Diaboromon, Diaboromon reappears on the net, where he produces thousands of Kuramon which emerge into the Real World through cell phones and computers. The DigiDestined tried to round them all up, but when Diaboromon was destroyed by Omnimon, all the Kuramon escaped. The Kuramon went to Tokyo Bay and combined into Armageddemon. Not even Omnimon or Imperialdramon Fighter Mode could get the best of him until Omnimon's body became the Omni Blade for Imperialdramon Fighter Mode to use. Upon destroying Armageddemon, his body disintegrated into millions of Kuramon. Everyone used their Digivices and cell phones to capture them and send them all back to the Digital World.
Tsumemon started eating computer data and causing havoc for cash registers worldwide as soon as its Digivolution was complete. Shortly after, Tsumemon digivolved into its Rookie form Keramon. Tsumemon, like Kuramon, only spoke in e-mails, and the first thing it said was "I'm hungry."
In his Rookie level stage, Keramon continued to cause trouble on the Internet by eating data. To stop the virus-like Digimon, Tai and Izzy, with the help of Gennai, sent their partners Agumon and Tentomon to his whereabouts to fight him. However their attacks had no effect, so they digivolved to their Champion forms and attacked again but then Keramon also digivolved. However he skipped his Champion Form and digivolved straight to Ultimate, becoming Infermon.
The e-mail Keramon uses in the movie is "@@@@@@djm.factorymark.co.jp".
The Ultimate level Infermon form was reached through Warp Digivolution, thus bypassing the Adult/Champion stage, Chrysalimon. In this form, Greymon and Kabuterimon had a hard time fighting him. To defeat the powerful Digimon, they also planned to Digivolve on their Ultimate Level but while they were Digivolving, Infermon attacked them, resulting in their defeat. Infermon then escaped and hacked himself in the US military network, from where he launched a nuclear missile on the DigiDestined. Agumon and Gabumon attacked him in their Warp Digivolved forms, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon. However, as the tides were against him, he Digivolved into Diaboromon, nearly killing both Patamon and Tentomon, the former in particular knocked out from being attacked in the midst of Digivolution to Angemon. This greatly enraged Tai and Matt, and they began to pummel him, that is, until Tai's computer froze, causing WarGreymon to do the same. Without the help of WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon was easily defeated by Diaboromon, who then escaped and began to clone himself.
When Infermon arrives in America, the e-mail that he uses is "@@@@@@djm.dot.gov.ny.us"
After escaping the Internet, the massive swarm of Kuramon combined into a massive Digi-Egg above Tokyo Bay. Shortly thereafter, the egg released Armageddemon, a monstrous creature whose sheer size prevents the heroes from returning him to the Internet. He confronts Omnimon, who stabs a hole in Armageddemon's forehead with his "Transcendent Sword" and blasts the inside of his mouth several times with "Supreme Cannon". This proved to be a mistake, for it allowed Armageddemon to release his "Destiny Destroyer" at point blank range upon Omnimon. After defeating Omnimon, he also made short work of Imperialdramon Fighter Mode. The combined power of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon created the Omni Sword, reviving Imperialdramon and creating Imperialdramon Paladin Mode whose Omni Sword ultimately killed Armageddemon, releasing all the Kuramon who were forever sealed within the Omni Sword, ending Diaboromon's rampage.
