SaberLeomon is an Ancient Animal Digimon whose name and design are derived from the Smilodon (Smilodon fatalis), colloquially known as the saber-toothed lion or tiger. It is said to possess the ability for Mach speed. However, the details are shrouded in mystery, though according to one theory it is a Leomon who was changed into the shape of a beast. With its speed it can easily dodge attacks, no matter how fast they are. Its two over-developed fangs and sharp claws possess tremendous destructive power, and it is called the ultimate Digimon.[5]
