Zeromaru (ゼロマル?), often shortened to Zero (ゼロ?), is a fictional character from the manga series Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01. Unlike most Digimon in the franchise, Zero has a name and is not referred to by his species.
Veedramon is a Dragon Digimon who has a small horn on his nose and two more horns where the ears would be. He has five-clawed hands and a pair of three-clawed feet. However, Zero only has four claws on each hand. The name "Veedramon" refers to the large blue "V" on his chest. Some Digimon often point out that he looks like a puppy.
Zeromaru shares many of the personality traits belonging to his human partner Taichi—he is very strong willed, but somewhat fool-hardy, and hates to be underestimated. He acknowledges the fact that he can't do everything on his own, but is determined to prove his strength nonetheless. Throughout the V-Tamer 01 series, he fights against many powerful Digimon, and often wins only because of Taichi's tactics.
- V-Breath Arrow: Veedramon's V-Nova Blast; Shoots out a V-shaped heat beam that can burn an enemy to crisp in seconds.
- V-Breath Arrow MAX: Concentrates his energy into a giant V-Breath Arrow.
- Hammer Attack: Powers up his fist and launches a punch at the enemy.
- Magnum Punch: Punches an enemy.
- Zeromaru (ゼロマル)
- Ja: Zero (ゼロ?). Japanese for zero.
- Ja: Maru (○? lit. "Circle", sometimes used for "zero").
- Together with Taichi, the name is a pun on "01". The use of the number "zero" twice allows their names form "100", as Taichi and Zero often claim to have "100%" wins.
- Zero (ゼロ)
A nickname often used for Zeromaru.
Botamon is Zeromaru's Fresh form.
AeroVeedramon is Zeromaru's Ultimate form. Zeromaru first digivolves into this form during a fight with Ghoulmon. In this new form, Zeromaru grows wings and is now able to fly and fight in air battles.
In this new form, the Dragon Digimon fought against many more Digimon enemies before finally facing Arukadhimon. During his first battle against this powerful Digimon, he was critically wounded by Arukadhimon's special attacks. He was saved with the help of all the other Digimon he and Taichi had met in their journey. The second time he fought Arukadhimon, he gained the upper hand, but soon lost again when Neo Saiba used a Digimental to evolve Arukadhimon to an even more powerful form. Zeromaru was seemingly killed when he rammed himself into the massive enemy Digimon at full speed.
UlforceVeedramon is Zeromaru's Mega form. Zeromaru first reaches this form during the battle against Arukadhimon. Zeromaru had rammed himself with immense speed into Arukadhimon, and seemingly died from the attack. However, his data was able to instead reform into his Mega form—UlforceVeedramon. In this form,Zeromaru was more than a match for the powerful Arukadhimon. Not only was he able to protect his friends from an attack of the evil Digimon with an energy shield, but was also able to hurt the giant Digimon with his "Shining V-Force" attack. He then ripped off Arukadhimon's left arm with his "Ulforce Saber" attack.
At this point, Rei Saiba, sister to Arukadhimon's Tamer Neo Saiba, decided she could no longer watch this kind of constant fighting, and jumped off a cliff created by Arukadhimon's God Matrix. Rei was saved just in time by Zeromaru, and this finally caused Neo to realize his wrongdoings. At this point, Daemon, the true evil mastermind, revealed himself to be alive and emerged to fight Zeromaru. Zeromaru fought bravely but was hurt badly when Daemon attacked his friends, thus forcing Zeromaru to protect them with his body. However, when Taichi activated his Digimental, Zeromaru gained strength anew and was able to digivolve into his most powerful form—"UlforceVeedramon Future Mode".
UlforceVeedramon Future Mode
UlforceVeedramon Future Mode is the most powerful form of Veedramon. Zeromaru reached this form when his tamer Taichi used his Digimental on him. He is one of the few confirmed Super Ultimate Digimon.
In this form, Zeromaru was easily able to defeat Daemon and finally killed him by slicing him into two. Afterwards, the Digimental lost its power and Zeromaru transformed back to UlforceVeedramon.
