"Tohma's Inglorious Battle—Secret Maneuvers, Togemon"

A famous boxer has a fantastic comeback after being absent for some years because of an injury. Thomas is a great fan of his, and when rumors of him using a Digimon to help him in his fights start to spread, he investigates, determined to prove his innocence.


At DATS headquarters, Commander Sampson brings in a needle to show the DATS. Then Yoshi, Thomas and Marcus went out to investigate who was behind all this. Thomas meets Harris, his #1 fan boxer from the past, and discusses about why he is retired from his fighting.

Meanwhile at the boxing store, after fighting some boxers, Marcus meets Harris's trainer, and asks him if he was responsible for the needle.

Thomas and Gaomon encounter a rogue Digimon named Togemon. He has Harris's daughter, Minnie, behind his back. Togemon and Minnie escaped from DATS and lured them into the stadium, Thomas and Gaomon were waiting to fight him. As Gaomon punched Togemon out of the ring, he grew larger. Gaomon digivolved to Gaogamon and finished Togemon off.

Dubbing changes

  • The onscreen kana that says, "" is translated

In the dub like with the other majority of the episodes, most or almost all of the Japanese kana (except for in the Digivolution Sequence) are erased and removed (as from signs).
