Salamon is a Mammal Digimon. It is a Holy-species Digimon child characterized by its lop ears. Because it is still very young, it is unable to manifest its holy powers, and isn't even aware of its own mission. For that reason it is naturally insecure, so it can become either good or evil. However, the time will come someday when Salamon, who was born as a Holy-species Digimon, will awaken to its mission as one of the "Virus Busters". Also, Salamon is an experimental Digimon that was created by Digimon researchers, and because it was made to imitate the pets that live with humans, it has an appearance close to that of a real animal. Salamon wears a Holy Ring around its neck.
- Puppy Howling: Completely paralyzes the opponent with a super-high pitched bark.
- Petty Punch (Petit Punch): Rapidly punches the opponent.
- Sledge Crash (Sledge Dash): Rams into foe at full speed.
- Plotmon (プロットモン)
Official romanization given by the Digimon Reference Book and used throughout the Japanese version of the franchise.
- Plot (プロット Purotto?). From the Plott Hound dog breed (プロット・ハウンド Purotto Haundo?), and also a pun on "Prototype" (プロトタイプ Purotaipu?), as Salamon is said to be an experimental Digimon.

The "Salamon T.F.U." item turns the player's current partner into a Salamon, maintaining its level but resetting its skill and stat points. Salamon can also be found in the Forest of Learning, where it is a level 12 enemy. Salamon's unique drop is Salamon's Fur, eight of which are needed to create a Digi-Egg of Hope. It has a stat build of 2-3-2-1 as a captured Digimon and a stat build of 3-3-2-2 as an enemy Digimon. Salamon's Skill 1 is Sledge Dash, which is a proximity single target skill, and its Skill 2 is Puppy Howling, which is a distant five target skill. Salamon gains the ability to digivolve to Gatomon at level 21, Angewomon at level 31, and Ophanimon at level 41. It can digivolve its Gatomon form, using the "Evolutor" item, to Goatmon with the Digi-Egg of Hope, Rabbitmon with the Digi-Egg of Friendship, and Nefertimon with the Digi-Egg of Light.
