|Mega||Ravemon Burst Mode|
The Data Squad version of Falcomon looks somewhat different from the original version, with a smaller toothless beak, red eye markings, dark brown body feathers and purple chest feathers with shuriken markings.
This Falcomon, different from the original Falcomon design in the card game, is the partner of Keenan Crier (Ikuto Noguchi) and is a servant of Merukimon. Details about his past are sketchy, but he has known Keenan since he was very young, and has a distrust of humans other than Keenan. He and Keenan were protected by a female Frigimon—who was destroyed—an act which Falcomon believes humans are responsible for.
Years after this, he came to the human world on his own to try and return Puwamon to the Digital World. In his second attempt, he showed great speed and prowess, until he was knocked out of the sky by Marcus Damon. He was nearly destroyed by GeoGreymon, until Merukimon arrived to save him. He then returned to the digital world. He was reunited with Keenan, and joined his human partner in ambushing the members of DATS when they came to the Digital World. During his attack on the DATS members, he Digivolved Falcomon to Peckmon.
After this, Falcomon's next prominent act was to forge an unsteady alliance with the humans, in order to save Keenan from the virus that was afflicting him and Yoshino "Yoshi" Fujieda. He led them to a place called Wanderer's Cape, where they were beset by a Blossomon sent by the Gotsumon that works for Merukimon. Falcomon escaped with the vaccine and helped Keenan, but also helped to save Yoshino. He departed with his partner, conflicted in his thoughts about humanity. He and Keenan attacked again near Merukimon's lair only to be interrupted by a Mammothmon unleashed by Gotsumon. As Gawappamon was holding off Merukimon, Falcomon followed the DATS members (and the unconscious Keenan) back to the Real World. After Okuwamon attacks and Hagurumon taking over Dr. Crier's house, Falcomon fled with Keenan when Commander Sampson's superior Chief Hashiba appeared. Falcomon continues to help Keenan and DATS. After the fight against Yggdrasill, Falcomon returns to the Digital World with the other Digimon.
- Scratch Smash: Uses the claws to scratch.
- Ninja Blade (『手裏裏剣』 Shuririnken?): Releases multiple shuriken at his opponents.
- Firecracker Smokescreen (『打竹落し』 Uchitake Otoshi?, lit. "Uchitake Drop"): Drops exploding bamboo cylinders on his enemies.
The name "Falcomon" refers only to the Rookie form of this Digimon. Throughout the series, Falcomon gains the ability to Digivolve into a number of more powerful forms, each with a different name and special attack. However, the Rookie level is his preferred form and the one he spends most of his time in.
Peckmon is the Champion of Falcomon. He first appeared when Keenan challenged the members of DATS when they emerged into the Digital World with the intention of fighting Merukimon. He dodged the attacks of GeoGreymon, Gaogamon, and Sunflowmon before being hit by Cherrymon's attack. After RizeGreymon stopped Gotsumon's attack, Keenan and Peckmon fled. Peckmon reappears in future episodes.
Crowmon is the Ultimate form of Falcomon. Falcomon first Digivolves to this series version of Crowmon when his partner Keenan Crier gains his new Digisoul to avenge Merukimon's death, when it came to battling Akihiro Kurata's Gizumon-XT and destroyed it.
Ravemon is the Mega form of Falcomon. He is known as the "Crow of the Silver", and wields the Chououmaru (鳥王丸? lit. "Raven King"). Falcomon digivolved to Ravemon The Battle with Belphemon!, in order to fight Belphemon. He later appears against the Royal Knights Craniamon and Gallantmon, fights the Knightmon soldiers of Yggdrasill under the command of the Royal Knights, and then appears a last time to fight Leopardmon.
Ravemon Burst Mode
Ravemon Burst Mode is the Burst-digivolved form of Ravemon.
Ravemon first digivolved into Burst Mode in "Justice Equals Power", in order to fight the Royal Knight Leopardmon. He later appeared to help ShineGreymon Burst Mode and the other DATS Digimon fight the Royal Knight Craniamon. He last appeared in the final confrontation against King Drasil alongside the other DATS Digimon.
