MetaLeomon is a purple-skinned, mutant, zombie-esque Leomon who serves the Guardian Empire. His name comes from the word "Metamorphosis", hinting at his shape-shifting abilities, and "Leo" (Lat: lion). It is similar in appearance and ability to MadLeomon, but unlike MadLeomon, it has reddish purple chest, legs of HippoGryphomon, feet of Garurumon, and the spike-tipped tail. The mouth of his lower chest is said to be connected with an abyss in the Dark Area, and if inhaled, an opponent's DigiCore is smashed to pieces.
He appeared as a commander in the first episode of Stitch and Digimon. He threatened the heroes, but they were saved by Stitch, Agumon, Shoutmon, Ballistamon, Starmon, and Pickmon. After this MetaLeomon absorbed all of the members of the army troop he commanded, and nearly defeated Shoutmon, and Ballistamon. He was defeated when Stitch used Digi-Xros Charge for the first time to merge Shoutmon, and Ballistamon, then Agumon digivolved into GeoGreymon, and then Starmon and Pickmon into the Star Sword for Shoutmon to use. After this MetaLeomon lost the power he got from absorbing the army, and was pulled back by Examon.

- Mega Crusher: Uses his giant claws to tear the opponent to pieces.
- Static Blade: Emits a purple blast of electricity from his mouth.
- Telekinetic Requiem: Using his second mouth he releases dark energy from the Dark Area.
