The Royal Knights (守護騎士 (ロイヤルナイツ) Shugo Kishi (Roiyaru Naitsu)?, lit. "Guardian Knights") are a group of thirteen Mega-level[1] Holy Knight Digimon[2] that are the Digital World's sacred guardians,[3] and are famed among Digimon as guardian deities of the Computer Network.[4][5] The group was founded by Imperialdramon Paladin Mode,[6] and serves Yggdrasill.[7] Because the Royal Knights are assigned the highest rank of Network Security, it is absolutely impossible to violate Security in their presence.[8] Based on a certain "Prophecy" handed down from the ancient Digital World, it is said that the Royal Knights will assemble at the time of the Digital World's greatest crisis.[5]

Most of the Royal Knights are Human Digimon, although there are a few with bestial forms.[9] Like historical knights, some of the Royal Knights are the lords of other types of Digimon,[3][10] although they are all subservient to Yggdrasill. Furthermore, each of the Royal Knights possesses a dogma that it believes in.[11] Many of the Royal Knights also have alternate Modes or X-Antibody forms, which are generally still considered Royal Knights.

List of Digimon Frontier episodes 38

Crusadermon and Dynasmon

The Royal Knights are servants of the villain Lucemon, exchanging their loyalty for a path to the Human World in order to rule it. When Knights Fall... Though these two Knights are villains, Baromon explains that at one time "the Royal Knights did fight for justice." It Can't Be! Lucemon Reappears They have an army of Knightmon under their command but have no qualms about sacrificing them if necessary. Now You See It, Now You Don't

Immediately after Cherubimon's defeat, Lucemon sends the two Royal Knights forth from the Dark Area and tasks them with gathering the world's fractal code in order to free him. Cherubimania They begin their work gathering the data of each of the Digital World's ten areas, by destroying the key that locks it in place, before sending it back to the Dark Area. The pair are overwhelmingly strong, easily defeating EmperorGreymon and MagnaGarurumon in their first clash. Dynasmon's power even flings the DigiDestined to the Blue Moon. Throughout their campaign, they defeat and kill numerous allies of the DigiDestined, such as Baromon It Can't Be! Lucemon Reappears and Angemon The Bully Pulpit. With each resulting clash, however, their margin of victory grows smaller, from what was once overwhelming to more or less evenly matched All Aboard The Tag Team Express to requiring Lucemon's aid to win. To Make The World Go Away

The Knights are ultimately successful in their goal to free Lucemon, who joins them for a brief period. To Make The World Go Away Lucemon sends the pair to finish off the Warriors, but they are finally defeated on the Yellow Moon. Before they can be purified, however, Lucemon takes advantage of their weakened state by absorbing their data so that he can digivolve to his next stage, Lucemon Chaos Mode. When Knights Fall...

Crusadermon

Crusadermon t

Crusadermon is the "Indifferent Warrior", wielding the Pile Bunker on her right arm. In Japanese, Crusadermon is an effeminate male, while in English, Crusadermon is female. Compared to her ally Dynasmon, Crusadermon focuses on blinding attacks using her incredible speed. Though cold and merciless in battle as befitting of her title, she can find beauty in the world, such as the brotherly relationship between Koji Minamoto and Koichi Kimura. Jerks And The Beanstalk She is also capable of cruel pity, as she reveals to Koichi at the Autumn Leaf Fair that he is but a spirit in the Digital World, a revelation that haunts him for the rest of his journey. All Aboard The Tag Team Express

During fights, Crusadermon tends to gravitate toward MagnaGarurumon, as they are both the speed-specialists in their respective pairs. It Can't Be! Lucemon Reappears She is also skillful enough to hold off two opponents at once, allowing Dynasmon to search for the key to the fractal code of their target.

When Lucemon is finally reborn and the Legendary Warriors are forced to retreat to the Yellow Moon, Crusadermon begins to have doubts that Lucemon will keep his end of the bargain. Dynasmon tells her to simply believe in their master, but Crusadermon still hesitates. Her doubts, compounded with the DigiDestined's increased resolve, leads her to fall against MagnaGarurumon on the Yellow Moon. Though defeated, she is ultimately killed by an opportunistic Lucemon, who lands the finishing blow against the Knights for their fractal code. When Knights Fall...

In the D-Spirit Version 1, Crusadermon is one of the bosses of the final area. She is depicted on Bo-139t.

Attacks

  • Spiral Masquerade: Chops up the opponent with the four body-sash blades which extend from her armor.
  • Fist of Athena (Urgent Fear): Instantly comes into point-blank range, then starts shooting the opponent in the chest with sonic booms from the Pile Bunker on her right arm.
  • Laser Lattice: Creates an energy net that projects out from the palm.
  • Scarlet Tempest: Uses the Pile Bunker to create a whirlwind about the foe.


Dynasmon

Dynasmon t

Dynasmon is the "Passionate Warrior", specializing in powerful, dragon and wyvern-based attacks. Compared to his ally Crusadermon, Dynasmon tends more toward brute force. He is passionate and unwavering in battle, though he can be goaded into letting loose with his emotions and committing overkill. Dynasmon is quick to anger and frustration, though he ever has his eye on the prize.

During fights, Dynasmon tends to gravitate toward EmperorGreymon, as they are both the power-specialists in their respective pairs. It Can't Be! Lucemon Reappears Due to Crusadermon's skill, Dynasmon is often the one who searches out the fractal code of an area while his partner fends off any attackers. All Aboard The Tag Team Express

When Lucemon is finally reborn and the Legendary Warriors are forced to retreat to the Yellow Moon, Dynasmon retains his unwavering faith in his master even Crusadermon begins to second-guess him. He blames her weakening against the DigiDestined on those doubts, but he himself is overpowered by EmperorGreymon on the Yellow Moon. After Crusadermon is defeated by MagnaGarurumon, Dynasmon is furious over his comrade's defeat, but his "Breath of Wyvern" is overcome by EmperorGreymon, and Dynasmon with it. However, Lucemon swoops in to claim the Royal Knights' fractal code, further empowering himself. When Knights Fall...

Dynasmon is depicted on Bo-138t.

Attacks

  • Dragon Thrower[13] (Dragon's Roar): Fires energy shots from the palms of his hands, with all the attributes of the Ten Legendary Warriors. He can also charge energy in his palms and then physically strike a foe repeatedly.
  • Breath of Wyvern: Transforms his body's energy into an aura of a gigantic wyvern. It is so powerful that Dynasmon cannot fully control it.


Digimon Chronicle

Gallantmon X


Omnimon X

Main article: Omnimon X (Chronicle)


Digital Monster X-Evolution

The Royal Knights are protectors of the Digital World, and initially serve the super computer Yggdrasill. They are able to confer through thirteen video screens that appear within Yggdrasill's domain.

During the movie, Yggdrasill's forces are enacting "Project Ark", which is designed to reduce the overload of data by transplanting a small amount of Digimon to a "new Digital World", and allowing the rest to perish with the destruction of the old world. However, this plan is disrupted when some of the abandoned Digimon acquire the X-Antibody, which allows them to survive in the new Digital World. To fix this, Yggdrasill sends the Royal Knights to eliminate the interlopers. Gallantmon opposed this genocide, and is killed for it, which fosters doubt in Omnimon, eventually causing him to help the mysterious Dorumon, who is revealed as Alphamon, a legendary member of the Royal Knights. The pair confronts Yggdrasill, and in the end, Omnimon must save the Digital World by destroying his master.

Omnimon

Omnimon (X-Evolution) t

M8 Omnimon X

Omnimon is a member of the Royal Knights who is loyal to Yggdrasill, and initially carries out Project Ark to the letter.

When Gallantmon confronted Omnimon about Yggdrasill, Omnimon was unwilling to disobey Yggdrasill and ended up dueling and killing Gallantmon. Shaken by his friend's death, Omnimon began to question Yggdrasill's sovereignty. It was only when Alphamon saves Omnimon's life by giving him the X-Antibody that Omnimon leaves Yggdrasill. He then transforms into Omnimon X and destroys Yggdrasill with his All Delete, which resets the Digital World as a result.

After Alphamon Ouryuken sacrifice against Dexmon, Omnimon gains Alphamon's X-Antibody and, taking his new form, sees Yggdrasill's actions for what they are. He destroys Yggdrasill with All Delete, resetting the Digital World. Afterward, he shares a few words with his ally, Gallantmon X.

Gallantmon

Gallantmon (X-Evolution) t

M8 Gallantmon X

Gallantmon is a member of the Royal Knights who questioned the intentions of the host computer, Yggdrasill. Because of this, Gallantmon acted individually, and tried to convince his close friend Omnimon that they were just being used and that their master Yggdrasill's Project Ark was more than it seemed. However, Omnimon refused to listen, and killed Gallantmon in a duel and is revealed that Gallantmon wanted to be deleted so that he may further invesitage Yggdrasill's intentions. Gallantmon was soon reborn as Gallantmon X, with the X-Antibody.

Gallantmon X appeared to help Dorugreymon, WarGreymon X, MetalGarurumon X, and the others fight off the great numbers of DexDoruGreymon and ordered the others to lead them out of the hidden road, and that DoruGreymon will stay and help him fight off the remaining enemies. DoruGreymon asked him why he existed and if he was dead, none of the dangers would have happened.

Gallantmon X asked him if he wanted to know the reason he existed and opened the gate to Yggdrasill's lair. After Omnimon X destroyed Yggdrasill, which caused the Digital World to reset, Gallantmon X is seen surveying the landscape along with Omnimon X. Then Gallantmon X said to Omnimon X that he was beginning to understand the reason behind Project Ark. Gallantmon X said that Yggdrasill generally intervened in the Digital World, but the world is a complex place, and that is where it thought about 'fixing it'.Omnimon X asked him if that was really Project Ark, and Gallantmon X told Omnimon that it was the most likely reason behind it. Gallantmon X said that was the time it thought up the experimental being, Dorumon,and they were merely just pawns of Yggdrasill's plan and Yggdrasill merely wanted to live, and said that from now on, all the digimon can be happy.

Magnamon

Magnamon (X-Evolution) t

Magnamon remains fiercely loyal to Yggdrasill throughout the movie, and is the one who captures Dorugamon and brings him to Yggdrasill. When Alphamon and Omnimon go to stop Yggdrasill, Magnamon professes that he still believes in their leader, but does nothing to stop them besides warning Yggdrasill.

Crusadermon

Crusadermon participates in the conference with the other Royal Knights, and agrees with Omnimon's suggestion to press the offensive against the X Digimon.

Alphamon


Digimon D-Cyber

Ten thousand years before the events of the story, the "Holy Knights" defeated Dexmon and sealed it away as a Digi-core. Years later, a virus infects the digital world, and only those with the X-Antibody survive. The three surviving Royal Knights make an appearance as allies of the story's DigiDestined—Omega of Power (Omnimon X), Duke of Courage (Gallantmon X) and Magna of Miracles (Magnamon X). At the end of the story, Dorumon is revealed to be their lost leader, Alphamon.

Alphamon

Gallantmon X

Duke, one of the Holy Knights, digivolved to Gallantmon X from MedievalDukemon in order to send the group to help Omega.

Magnamon X

Magna of Miracles is one of the few remaining Holy Knights. After Dexmon is defeated, he uses his miracles to allow Hikaru Ryuuji to return to the Real World.

Omnimon X

One of the few remaining Holy Knights, Omnimon X appears as Hikaru's DexDorugoramon rampages out of control. The Holy Knight is no match for the Mega digimon, however, until Hikaru interferes and returns him to his senses. After Dorumon's Dragon Spirit is stolen however, Omnimon X sends Hikaru, Teru, and Masuken to another of the Holy Knights, Duke, while he attempts to track MetalPhantomon. He witnesses the birth of Dexmon, however, and is immediately beaten down by him until Hikaru and the others arrive to fight.

Digimon Data Squad

Royalspoiler

Nine of the Royal Knights in the second opening

In Digimon Data Squad, the Royal Knights are again King Drasil's subordinates. Digimon Data Squad also depicts the largest gathering of Royal Knights, with nine out of thirteen making an appearance.

Before the events of the series, King Drasil decides that due to humanity's crimes (most of which are in fact Akihiro Kurata's doing), it is too dangerous to be allowed to live. Though he is convinced to wait by Dr. Spencer Damon, the imminent collision of the Human and Digital Worlds prompts him to move forward with the plan, and he sends the Knights to eliminate humanity. Before they begin, the Knights encounter and defeat the DATS, but are prevented from finishing them off due to the intervention of the rogue knight Kentaurosmon (who is revealed to be Commander Richard Sampson's Kudamon).

The destruction of the human world begins immediately afterwards, starting with a battle between Gallantmon and Kentaurosmon, which ended with both being sealed in ice. LoadKnightmon and Leopardmon fall in battle, and Craniamon is defeated by the DATS, even though he was using King Drasil's power, showing him that his sovereign is not absolute.

Craniamon then goes to the Human World to replace BanchoLeomon, who was holding the two worlds apart. Eventually, the other Knights also decide to defy King Drasil, and join Craniamon in holding the two worlds apart. After King Drasil is defeated, they thank the humans and return to the Digital World.

Craniamon

5-44 01

Craniamon is the closest Royal Knight to King Drasil, and carries out his orders without question. It is revealed that long before the events of the series, he was defeated in battle by Spencer Damon and BanchoLeomon, prior to their encounter with King Drasil.

Shortly after Belphemon is destroyed, Craniamon listens to King Drasil's arguments for humanity's destruction, and agrees with his master's decision. He was the first Royal Knight to face the members of DATS in battle, and he overpowers them until Marcus activates Burst Digivolution, digivolving ShineGreymon into ShineGreymon Burst Mode. The tide of the battle turns, but is halted by the arrival of Gallantmon and the other Royal Knights, who defeat the DATS in one attack. King Drasil then arrives and commands the Royal Knights to destroy the DATS, but they are interrupted by Kentaurosmon, who escapes to the Human World with the DATS.

Craniamon battles the DATS members again, this time with the impenetrable Omni-Shield given to him by King Drasil. However, the power of all of the DATS' Burst Modes is able to shatter the shield, convincing Craniamon that King Drasil's power is not absolute. Craniamon forfeits the battle, and allows the DATS to face King Drasil. He later travels to Mt. Fuji and replaces BanchoLeomon in holding the Digital and human worlds apart.

He struggled with this task until King Drasil's arrival at Mt. Fuji, when he is joined by the other Knights, and they learn of King Drasil's real plan. The other Royal Knights then join Craniamon in holding the two worlds apart, since he is weakening against King Drasil's attacks, while the DATS fend off King Drasil. After King Drasil is defeated, the Royal Knights head back to the Digital World.

Dynasmon

Dynasmon t

Dynasmon is introduced when the DATS first encountered the Royal Knights and King Drasil. The Royal Knights are ordered by King Drasil to destroy the DATS, but were interrupted by the sudden appearance of Kentaurosmon, who carried the DATS away.

Later, Dynasmon was seen attacking New York City along with the Royal Knights' army of Knightmon. He had a short conversation with Magnamon about Craniamon's battle with DATS, but remained confident of victory after assurances by Magnamon.

When King Drasil heads to Mt. Fuji to destroy the Human World, the Royal Knights follow and join in questioning their master's sovereignty, resulting in King Drasil's imperfection being revealed. The other Royal Knights then join Craniamon in holding the two worlds apart, since he is weakening against King Drasil's attacks, while the DATS fend off King Drasil. After King Drasil is defeated, the Royal Knights head back to the Digital World.

Gallantmon

Gallantmon t

Gallantmon is introduced when the DATS first encountered the Royal Knights and King Drasil. The Royal Knights are ordered by King Drasil to destroy the DATS, but were interrupted by the sudden appearance of Kentaurosmon, who carried the DATS away.

Gallantmon pursues and easily defeats the DATS team, and is about to finish them off, when Kentaurosmon intervenes. A brief scuffle ensues and is ended by Kentaurosmon using "Icy Breath" to freeze both of them in a giant block of ice. Gallantmon attempts to prevent this, but fails, and they fall into the sea alive but incapacitated.

In the last few episodes, Gallantmon and Kudamon join the other Knights at Mt. Fuji as Gallantmon explains that he understands why Kentaurosmon had left them, and that Kentaurosmon had used his D.N.A. to free the two of them. The Knights then question their master's sovereignty, resulting in King Drasil's imperfection being revealed. Gallantmon attempts to attack King Drasil, but is thrown back. Craniamon weakens due to King Drasil's attacks, so the other Royal Knights join him in holding the two worlds apart while the DATS fend off King Drasil. After King Drasil is defeated, the Royal Knights return to the Digital World.

Kentaurosmon

Leopardmon

5-43 02

5-43 01

During King Drasil's campaign to destroy the human world, Leopardmon presented himself to King Drasil, and was allowed to join the battle. Leopardmon then appeared in Japan, and attacked Yoshino "Yoshi" Fujieda, Keenan Crier, and their partners, Rosemon and Ravemon.

During the battle, Leopardmon gave his opponents an insight to the Royal Knights' sense of justice, stating that saving the Digital World was a task worthy of even sacrificing its own inhabitants. Determined to save Marcus Damon's family, Yoshino and Keenan empowered their partners into Rosemon Burst Mode and Ravemon Burst Mode, respectively. The two digimon then defeated Leopardmon. The Strategic Knight was then reverted into a Digiegg which was pulled back into the Digital World.

LoadKnightmon

Crusadermon t

5-42 05

LoadKnightmon is introduced when the DATS first encountered the Royal Knights and King Drasil. The Royal Knights are ordered by King Drasil to destroy the DATS, but were interrupted by the sudden appearance of Kentaurosmon, who carried the DATS away.

LoadKnightmon also participated in the attack on the human world, commanding an army of Knightmon. When Thomas H. Norstein and MirageGaogamon held back an attack on an airport, LoadKnightmon appeared personally and overwhelmed both them and Commander-General Homer Yushima's partner, Shawjamon. It was only when Thomas activated MirageGaogamon's digivolution to Burst Mode that LoadKnightmon was defeated. The Knight reverted to a Digi-Egg, which was pulled back into the Digital World.

Magnamon

When King Drasil heads to Mt. Fuji to destroy the Human World, the Royal Knights follow and question their masters sovereignty, resulting in King Drasil's imperfection being revealed. The other Royal Knights then join Craniamon in holding the two worlds apart, since he is weakening against King Drasil's attacks, while the DATS fend off King Drasil. After King Drasil is defeated, the Royal Knights head back to the Digital World.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Alphamon

Craniamon

Craniamon is one of Leopardmon's Royal Knight supporters. Appearing in cyberspace, Craniamon tries halting Aiba's progress. However, he is quickly slain because he has doubts about the supposed evil of humanity.

Crusadermon

Crusadermon (Cyber Sleuth) b

Crusadermon is one of the Royal Knights. She is the supreme monarch who presides over all the Knightmon.[14] Crusadermon was sent to Earth to find a way to bring the other Royal Knights to the Real World en masse. Posing as Miss Rie, she worked behind the scenes trying to manipulate Digital Waves. Eventually, Aiba catches up to her and defeats her, but not before finding out about the tragic events that happened eight years ago. Later on, Crusadermon attacks Aiba and Yuko with a horde of Eaters, but is stopped by Alphamon. After a long struggle, she is defeated and fades away into data.

Dynasmon

Dynasmon is one of the Royal Knights allied with Leopardmon's invasion force. Acting as Leopardmon's right-hand enforcer and occasional bodyguard, Dynasmon appears from time to time to interfere with Omnimon's efforts to sway the other Royal Knights to his cause. He finally faces defeat when Aiba confronts him on their way to stop Leopardmon.

Examon

Examon is one of the Royal Knights allied with Leopardmon, acting as the brute force of the opposing Royal Knights. Crusadermon opened a portal in the sky, letting Examon enter the Real World. There was a problem, however: Examon had become infected by Eaters and was running amok, though Crusadermon didn't seem to mind. Examon later caused untold amounts of damage to Tokyo. When Aiba first fights Examon, Examon retreats and the mission pertaining to him ends in complete failure. Eventually Aiba, with the help of the infected Arata, has a rematch with the behemoth resulting in Examon's defeat. Examon is the only member of the Royal Knights who allied with Leopardmon to survive.

Gallantmon

Gallantmon is one of the human-friendly Royal Knights, as well as Omnimon's best friend and steadfast ally. Gallantmon first appears shortly after Leopardmon's debut, allying himself with Omnimon almost immediately. After Arata is infected by an Eater, Gallantmon becomes concerned about the harm that Arata would do in his current state. Sadly, his concerns weren't unfounded. As Gallantmon and the other benevolent Royal Knights tried to defeat Examon alongside Arata and Aiba, not only did Examon get away, but Arata killed Gallantmon by eating him alive, under the influence of his infection. Gallantmon is the only Royal Knight siding with Omnimon to perish. However, a revived but injured Gallantmon can be seen on the Metropolitan office roof after defeating Leopardmon.

Gankoomon

Gankoomon is one of the Royal Knights and the only neutral party amongst their ranks, choosing to be a mentor to Hackmon, the apprentice Royal Knight, instead of fighting for or against mankind. He tasks Aiba with aiding in Hackmon's training, which makes Hackmon feel betrayed and run to fight BanchoLeomon himself. When Aiba saves Hackmon and completes Gankoomon's request, Gankoomon orders the newly Warp-Digivolved Hackmon, now called Jesmon, to assist Aiba. Gankoomon declines the offer to side with humanity, however, and remains mostly neutral throughout the conflict outside of implied moral support in favor of Omnimon's group.

Jesmon

Jesmon is the youngest, newest recruit in the Royal Knight ranks and a deeply loyal ally of Omnimon. As Hackmon, he was tasked by his mentor, Gankoomon, to defeat BanchoLeomon in combat. There was a catch, however: Hackmon needed Aiba to help them. Feeling betrayed, he ran off to battle BanchoLeomon himself, only to fail. It wasn't until Aiba arrived that Hackmon achieved his goal. During the aftermath of the battle, Hackmon Warp-Digivolves into Jesmon, becoming a full-fledged Royal Knight and eternally indebted to Aiba. As thanks, and on Gankoomon's request, he sides with Omnimon against Leopardmon's forces.

Kentaurosmon

Kentaurosmon was one of the Royal Knights that sided with Leopardmon during his campaign against the Real World. Kentaurosmon was first seen causing chaos in EDEN, prompting Aiba to try and stop him. Kentaurosmon, however, was incredibly fast, and therefore, someone just as fast, if not faster, would have to take him down instead. As it turned out, only UlforceVeedramon could counter Kentaurosmon, as he was the fastest Royal Knight. Their conflict led Aiba to finally be able to overcome Kentaurosmon. After Kentaurosmon loses to Aiba, the loss brings him to his senses. It turned out that Kentaurosmon was immensely confused, causing his erratic behavior in the first place. Seeing as nothing was destroyed, Kentaurosmon was allowed to join Omnimon's group a changed Digimon.

Leopardmon

Leopardmon is the lead tactician of the Royal Knights and the Royal Knight who orchestrated the events pertaining to the Real World's invasion. In response to the Eaters corroding the Digital World and discovering the origins of said monsters, Leopardmon proposed that the Royal Knights invade the Real World and destroy humanity, as humanity was responsible for creating the Eaters in the first place. While others like Crusadermon and Examon agreed with the strategist, others such as Gallantmon and Omnimon did not, choosing to find peace between humans and Digimon instead, creating a civil war between them. Leopardmon led Crusadermon, Examon, Craniamon, Dynasmon, and Kentaurosmon (temporarily) against the humans.

Magnamon

Magnamon is one of Omnimon's Royal Knight allies. Magnamon was initially conflicted regarding the invasion of the Real World, being unsure as to whether or not he wanted to support it or stand against it. However, despite Dynasmon's interference, Magnamon is swayed by Aiba into joining Omnimon's cause.

Omnimon

UlforceVeedramon

UlforceVeedramon is one of Omnimon's supporters and the fastest member of the Royal Knights. UlforceVeedramon is first mentioned by Omnimon as the only Royal Knight fast enough to best Kentaurosmon. However, the UlforceVeedramon of that universe was caught in the portal between the Digital and Real World as it closed. Aiba is tasked to recruit an UlforceVeedramon from an alternate reality.
