Imperialdramon Dragon Mode is an Ancient Dragon Digimon. It is an ultimate Digimon that existed in ancient times. There is a clear distinction between it and other Digimon in terms of existence or ability. Also, Imperialdramon is called the Dragon Mode, but there seems to exist a "Fighter Mode" (竜人形態 (ファイターモード) Ryuujin Keitai (Faitā Mōdo)?, lit. "Dragon Man Form") that is able to liberate all of its power. However, it is said that that form has never been seen. Due to its immense power, controlling it is next to impossible, and depending on how it is raised it may become a savior or a god of destruction. It wields the "Positron Laser" on its back.[7]


  • Mega Crusher (Mega Death): Fires super-massive dark matter, swallowing everything within a dark space and completely annihilating everything within a radius of a few hundred meters around the impact-point of the dark matter.
  • Positron Laser: Fires a huge blast of positronic energy from the Positron Laser.
  • Splendor Blade: Slashes with its claw.
  • Eternal Zeal: Releases a maelstrom of fire.
