Drimogemon is an Animal Digimon whose name and design are derived from drill and the mole (Mogera wogura) (土竜 Mogura?). It moves underground at high speeds with the gigantic drill attached to its snout. It is an extremely rare Digimon to come across because it is always digging deep underground. Although it has a meek, shy personality, it is fairly mischievous, and sometimes it takes the favorite bones that Garurumon has buried underground and hides them in different locations. If it were to have been discovered later than NiseDrimogemon, it could have ended up being called "Nise" (偽? lit. "Imitation").
The DigiDestined encountered a Drimogemon outside of a convenience store in an undersea cave, where the Tags should be hidden. It was the last victim of the Black Gear and would not let anyone pass as part of Devimon's will. Ikkakumon battled Drimogemon until Kabuterimon destroyed the Black Gear and Drimogemon told them that the Tags that they were looking for were in the convenience store which T.K. and Poyomon found during the fight.

Digimon Data Squad
Ten years later, a small Drimogemon appeared in the Human World as the result of robbers hacking a bank's security system. While good-willed, he was also naïve and easily manipulated into assisting the criminals in stealing money, up until they were tracked down by the DATS team. Due to the negative emotions of the two robbers, Drimogemon grew larger and attacked the DATS team. However, the conflicting tactics of Marcus Damon and Thomas H. Norstein, which caused the attacks of their Digimon partners to cancel each other out, gave Drimogemon time to escape back into the Digital World. Marcus and Thomas, feeling guilty about messing up, decide to pursue Drimogemon at his home advantage so that they would stop Drimogemon. However in the Digital World, both of them fell into a trap by Drimogemon and were captured in a large underground labyrinth which was the Digimon's home. However thanks to the actions of Marcus, they both escaped by riding on Drimogemon's back and lured him into a colosseum, where Drimogemon couldn't dig into the ground. When he was confronted by the two boys and their Digimon, Drimogemon digivolved to a large Digmon, and was subsequently destroyed.
Later, Drimogemon would "reappear", in a nightmare forced onto Marcus by MetalPhantomon. Drimogemon carried the illusionary form of Marcus' sister Kristy Damon away, while Marcus was helpless to save her, due to being held back by rapidly multiplying Numemon.
A second wild Drimogemon is digging nearby, and asks him to cart the dirt from its digging outside the tunnel. After carting the dirt and coming back the next day, the Drimogemon will encounter a boulder in its path, which the Protagonist can move using a Champion or Ultimate Digimon. Finally, three days after the Protagonist defeats Meramon at Lava Cave, the Drimogemon will complete its tunnel connecting Native Forest and Gear Savannah. The Drimogemon will join File City and run a treasure-hunting shop near the Meat Farm.
A third wild Drimogemon can be found digging on the third floor. Once the Protagonist has recruited 45 Digimon, the Drimogemon will encounter Leomon's Stone in its path, which the Protagonist can retrieve.
