Ron is a cheerful person and loves Digimon, loving to play the Digimon card game and drawing Digimon he made up. One such Digimon became his partner; Agumon. He fast became brothers Jack and his partner, Dracomon. He has a crush on Viper Louto throughout the series. Ron was voiced by Makoto Tsumura (Japan) and James Arnold Taylor (English). Ron is somewhat the leader of the Starters.
Ron (15 years old, 11 in the Japanese version) is an only child. He comes from a family who runs their own martial arts and noodle restaurant. Ron is extremely imaginative and loves to be creative, so he likes drawing. One day he draws Agumon on a notepad and his recently acquired Digital Art scans the drawings to create his new partner. He wears goggles to show his digimon tamer status. When Ron teaches him how to training, Agumon agrees to become his partner. Ron is one of the few humans shown to fight Digimon by himself, though he still counts on Agumon's help to fight the stronger opponents. Even though other humans can evoke their DNA charges by themselves, Ron must usually connect a kung fu kick on an enemy to do so, subsequently using it to digivolve Agumon. A few exceptions are seen such the very first time Agumon reaches a new form after FireGreymon. Then in Episode 15, where Marcus enabled FireGreymon to digivolve to DragonGreymon without kicking another Digimon. In episode 55, Ron is never seen kicking anyone; instead his emotions of destroying dark forces enabled him to automatically Double Warp Digivolve Agumon to MightGreymon. Then in episode 56, where he digivolves MightGreymon to the Dragon Burst Mode without kicking an opponent. Ron saves Viper from dark forces. At last day of school, he went in the playground to play digimon cards and Viper appears to kiss Ron. In the nest day, Ron and Viper are falling in love so Agumon is finally back home.
