Examon is a Holy Knight Digimon. One of the "Royal Knights", it possesses an extraordinary data size, so traditional digital tools were unable to completely render it, and its existence was discovered because it finally became possible to render it with the use of state-of-the-art digital tools. Though it belongs to the Royal Knights, it is simultaneously a being which stands at the top of all Dragon Digimon, and holds the alias of "Dragon Emperor". It possesses the gigantic, sentient wings "Caledfwlch" and the gigantic lance "Ambrosius". The Caledfwlch is a unique set of wings composed entirely of Chrome Digizoid, and at its own will, it can at times change into wings for flight, or into a shield which defends Examon. The gigantic lance "Ambrosius" is loaded with special shells stocked with viruses which possess various effects, so Examon's attacks are quite diverse.[4]


  • Avalon's Gate: Stabs the opponent with the Ambrosius and explodes all of its special shells, annihilating them from within.
  • Pendragon's Glory: Rockets up to the exosphere and conducts a high-powered laser firing.
  • Dragonic Impact: Dives from the exosphere and performs a ramming attack shrouded in heat from friction with the atmosphere, mopping up swaths of enemies with the accompanying shock wave.
  • Ambrosius
  • Caledfwlch no Gekkou (カレドヴールフの激昂? lit. "Caledfwlch's Rage"): Raises its speed.
  • Shuuen no Ambrosius (終焉のアンブロジウス? lit. "Ambrosius of Demise"): Raises its attack and the chance of landing a critical hit.


Examon is a large red dragon with green eyes, large torn wings, and a large tail. It has multiple horns on its head, the largest being its frontal hort, and its two back horns. It has white scales in the front of its body, going from its chest, to its tail. Its hands have three fingers on each hand, and three toes on each foot, and a claw on each on each finger and toe. It wears gold ornaments on its claws, frontal horn, and the spikes on its wings. It wields the "Ambrosius", a gigantic black lance. It has many red gems on its chest, thighs, frontal horn, back horns, and the top spikes of its wings.

Examon was originally designed to be the Mega for Dracomon's blue "Heavenly Dragon" (天竜 Tenryū?) evolution line, but was traded with Slayerdramon as the Mega form of the "Almighty Dragon" (全能竜 Zen'nouryū?) ruling over both heaven and earth when the proposal for a full, third Yellow line was discarded.[5]
