Sakuyamon is a Shaman Digimon whose name is derived from the mythological Princess Sakuya of Konohana. It holds the role of a miko, acting as an agent of God's will. Like Taomon, it freely uses Onmyoudou techniques in battle, and has the ability to employ God Beast-species Digimon. It always carries four pipes on the belt around its waist, within which lurk four kuda-gitsune that possess the attributes of "Fire", "Water", "Wind", and "Thunder", respectively. It is able to use these kuda-gitsune for everything from attacking to gathering information. Just like MagnaAngemon's Priest Mode, it is able to change into a Miko Mode (巫女形態 Miko Keitai?) which administers Shinto rituals. It wields the "Kongou Shakujou" (金剛錫杖? lit. "Vajra-Khakkhara"). Its gloves bear the Zero Unit, and the characters on the foreheads of the red, blue, green, and yellow kuda-gitsune read "Fire" (火 Hi?), "Water" (水 Mizu?), "Wind" (風 Kaze?), and "Thunder" (雷 Kaminari?), respectively.
