Karatenmon is a Wizard Digimon whose name and design are derived from the mythological Karasu-tengu (烏天狗? lit. "Crow goblin"). It was adopted from a winning entry in the "Digimon Web Dot-art Contest" which belonged to Masaki Shima from Ibaraki prefecture. It has the appearance of a Shugenja. It is a follower of the great Tengu Digimon, and its face is itself that of a crow. It excels in Shugendo, and freely manipulates its Genriki. The two swords that Karatenmon possesses are called the , and contain strong magical powers. As a wandering warrior, it has been taught by many masters and gained arcane abilities.
Digimon Xros WarsEdit
Another Karatenmon guards the Code Crown of the Shinobi Zone, and would only relinquish it if he could be made to laugh. Xros Heart and a group of Etemon traveled to a waterfall he was meditating under, and performed many comedy acts to try and elicit a laugh. In the end, Akari and Nene's bokke skit managed to make him laugh.
