Imperialdramon Paladin Mode is an Ancient Dragon Digimon. It is a form of Imperialdramon Fighter Mode that acquired the power of the holy knight Omnimon, powering up and changing form into a legendary holy knight. As the final, strongest form of Imperialdramon Dragon Mode that was told of since ancient times, it descended in a time of great disruption in the ancient Digital World, and rescued the world from complete collapse. However, all of the details of that era are a mystery, and if research into Digimon and the Digital World progresses, it is likely that they will eventually be clarified. It wields the ultimate "Omni Sword" (Omega Blade).[3] It is the founder of the Royal Knights.[4]


  • Omni Sword[5] (Omega Blade): Cuts the opponent in two with a single stroke of the Omni Sword, resetting and clearing their configuration data.
  • Giga Crusher[6] (Giga Death): Inserts the Positron Laser into the dragon-face on its chest, then emits all of its body's energy as a destructive energy wave with ten times the power of "Mega Crusher".
  • Positron Laser: Fires the Positron Laser.
  • Splendor Blade: Manifests a sword of light from its gauntlet and slashes down at the opponent.


Imperialdramon Paladin Mode takes Imperialdramon Fighter Mode and changes it according to the Paladin character class, particularly the archetype spawned by Dungeons & Dragons. The Paladin Mode's wings and armor change to a white color to signify the purity and holiness associated with the paladin, and it wields a sword, named the Omni Sword, as paladin characters do. It has the "Positron Laser" equipped to its right arm.[citation needed] It bears a combined symbol of the Crests of Courage and Friendship on the hilt of the Omni Sword. The DigiCode on its Positron Laser reads DC deDC jiDC taDC ruDC moDC nDC suDC taDC chouon (デジタルモンスター Dejitaru Monsutā?, lit. "Digital Monster"), and the DigiCode on its Omni Sword reads "INITIALIZE" (DC IDC NDC IDC TDC IDC ADC LDC IDC ZDC E).
