Poltermon, "Benevolent Darkness", is a Ghost Digimon whose name and design are derived from the "Poltergeist". It is the Armor Digivolved form of Candlemon through the Digi-Egg of Darkness. A mischievious spirit, it enjoys playing pranks on other Digimon. However, it is truly good at heart, and will not perform any evil acts no matter what the temptation. It is destined to fight alongside the wielder of the Crest of Darkness.


Poltermon is more basic in appearance that one would believe. Its body is mainly a purple staticy mist, formed in a shape that appears to look like a sheet being spread out along a person's back. At the ends of the "arms" are clawed hands made out of the same crystalline structure on the Digi-Egg of Darkness. The ends of the "legs" have the same crystalline structure formed into feet that resemble talons. At the head area of the body is the orb on the Digi-Egg, which forms the head. The orb has the same type of face as Candlemon's flame, only sharper, and crystalline spikes that make the orb resemble the flame. Poltermon can clamp his hands and feet onto the orb and dissipate his mist body in order to dodge attacks.

Digimon Adventure 02 Fanfiction

Poltermon appears in a Adventure 02 Fanfiction as the Armor Digivolution of Aaron Raibu's partner, Candlemon. Before Aaron obtained the Crest of Darkness, Candlemon was unable to Digivolve to his Champion Level due to the Dark Influence, which acted as a wide-spread Control Spire. After obtaining the Crest, Aaron was given the Digi-Egg of Darkness, which allowed him to Armor Digivolve into Poltermon. Poltermon is frequently seen in battle due to the Dark Influence alongside the other Armor Digimon. Poltermon's pivotal battle is when Veemon becomes BlackFlamedramon. Using his mischievious nature, Poltermon taunts BlackFlamedramon and keeps him distracted long enough for Nefertimon to purge the Crest of Darkness's power from him and revert him to Flamedramon. After the Dark Influence weakens, Poltermon is rarely seen, as Aaron mainly Digivolves Candlemon normally from that point on.


  • Tricky Laughter - Begins laughing in a taunting manner, disrupting his opponent's concentration and allowing his allies to attack.
  • Prankstergeist - Releases a mass of random obects (pans, dishes, etc.) from his mist body, then unleashes a ghostly force that causes the objects to come alive and attack the opponent. The objects are not regular objects, as they will not break under attacks.
  • Dark Murmur - Unleashes sonic waves composed of numerous voices that surround and overwhelm the opponent.
