Meramon is a Flame Digimon whose name and design are derived from the onomatopoeia for burning (めらめら Meramera?). It is shrouded in crimson flames over its entire body. As a Digimon generated from the defensive "Firewall" which prevents illegal entries from the Internet and the like, it possesses a violent temperament like the flames that envelop its body, and tries to incinerate everything it touches. Its fire power is stronger than those of the same species on File Island, and because taming this Digimon is extremely difficult, even if it's tamed, there's no telling 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.
