ShogunGekomon is an Amphibian Digimon. An upgraded version of Gekomon with an antenna resembling the chonmage of a feudal lord. The upgrade is said to have first occurred in a karaoke grading system. It plays a melody from the two horns extending from its shoulders, and its singing voice, which is several octaves below that of Gekomon's, imparts a feeling of a lordly air of superiority (?).[5]


  • Musical Fist (コブシトーン Kobushi Tone?, lit. "Samurai Tone")[6]: Unleashes a powerful sound from his horns that knocks his opponents away.
  • Horn Howling
  • Frog Kick


ShogunGekomon takes the form of a red toad/bullfrog that has a crazed look and a small tail. It has a pair of mustache-like whiskers, pointed teeth, an antenna with a purple tip resembling the chonmage on its head, and two horns extending from its shoulder blades. It has a green leafy ruff around its neck and a yellow underbelly with an outie navel covered by two tape strips across it.
