Meramon is a Flame Digimon whose name and design are derived from the onomatopoeia for burning (めらめら Meramera?). It is shrouded with crimson flames over its whole body. As a Digimon that was generated from the defensive "Firewall" that protects things like the Internet from illegal entries, it possesses a violent temperament like the flames that wrap its body, and tries to incinerate everything it touches. It has stronger fire power than the same species on File Island, and taming this Digimon is very difficult, and as a result, even if it's tamed you won't know when it will bare its fangs.
Another Meramon was briefly seen on the TV when Tai came back to the real world after defeating Etemon.

When the Digimon Emperor and his flock of Airdramon arrived with Greymon under his control, he wanted it to Digivolve to MetalGreymon. Instead it Digivolved to SkullGreymon and took out the Meramon, Flamedramon, Halsemon, Digmon and the Control Spire.

A Meramon was the first Digimon that the Tamers encountered upon their arrival in the Digital World. It attacked them, thinking that they were enemies until Leomon attacked him and Meramon apologised. He told the Tamers how he wished he could go to the Real World. Later that night, a group of Jagamon stampeded and the Tamers barely escaped but Meramon was not lucky as the Jagamon trampled him and he was destroyed. In the morning, the Tamers made a marker to remember him by and the Jagamon that settled to sleep nearby had some explaining to do.
