- Level: Mega – Type: Virus – Attack Techniques: Screaming Darkness, Crimson Mist, Mental Illusion
MaloMyotismon is an alternate Mega for Myotismon’s Digivolutionary line, with more potential for power than even VenomMyotismon. His Screaming Darkness attack protects pure darkness on his opponents, while his Crimson Mist attack consists of a powerful acidic spray. He is capable of reading the minds of others, and feeds off of fear and despair.
After being destroyed as VenomMyotismon, the data of the evil Digimon overlord, Myotismon, floated aimlessly in the real world, with nowhere to go. When theDigiWorld appeared in the sky, Myotismon found what he was looking for – a host. Yukio Oikawa, who had learned of the DigiWorld as a child, and had always wanted to go there, was stunned to see the DigiWorld appear before him, and pleaded with the DigiDestined – too far away to even hear him – to take him with them as they left. Myotismon heard his pleas, and made him an offer – “soothe your heart with darkness, and I will take you there!” Oikawa, not even fully understanding, agreed to Myotismon’s terms, and Myotismon’s data entered his body, possessing him.
As time passed, Oikawa was unaware that Myotismon was inside of him, manipulating his actions. Myotismon engineered the creation of Arukenimon and Mummymon, and had them act out his plans to disrupt the barriers of DigiWorld, which would allow him to enter it. But the new DigiDestined continuously foiled his plans, and so, he needed to get his hands dirty. While on the run from Daemon and his corps, Myotismon had Oikawa replicate the Dark Spore within Ken, and implant it into various other unwitting children. Oikawa thought that it would allow him to enter the DigiWorld, but instead, Myotismon planned to use them as a power source to all him to be reborn.
When a girl named Noriko’s Spore flowered prematurely, Oikawa absorbed it’s power, and Myotismon took over his body momentarily, fatally injuring BlackWarGreymon, who had discovered that Myotismon was inside of Oikawa. With the last of his strength, BlackWarGreymon sealed the DigiWorld gate at Highton View Terrace, preventing Myotismon from gaining access.
Instead, Myotismon had Oikawa use the key cards to open a gateway to another dimension, where he finally revealed the truth, and exited Oikawa’s body, taking on Oikawa’s own form. Then, he absorbed the power from the Dark Spores, and transformed himself into MaloMyotismon. His first act was to dispense with Arukenimon and Mummymon, no longer having any use for them, taking the opportunity to test out his mind-reading powers. He scanned Arukenimon’s thoughts, and then acted out her fears, toying with her before he destroyed her. He then calmly melted Mummymon with his Crimson Mist attack, and turned his attention to the DigiDestined. The kids were all terrified, except Davis, whose courage energised ExVeemon, enabling him to do some damage to MaloMyotismon in a one-on-one battle. MaloMyotismon used his Mental Illusion technique to manipulate the energies of the dimension, plunging the DigiDestined into illusions of their greatest desires, so they would trouble him no longer. However, he had not counted on Davis, who was happy with his life, and had no concerns or dreams of his own. Davis helped free the kids from their illusion, and then they used the power of the dimension to their own ends, making all their Digimon Digivolve to their separate forms at once. All of the Digimon teamed up against MaloMyotismon, dealing him a severe pummelling, until a twin attack from the twoImperialdramons’ Positron Lasers ripped a hole in the fabric of the dimension, through which MaloMyotismon fled into the DigiWorld. He then absorbed the darkness there, and grew to immense proportions, using his Screaming Darkness attack to beat back the Digimon, and then beginning his grand plan – to shroud both worlds in the power of his darkness, making him ruler of both! Soon, all the Digimon of the world’s DigiDestined arrived on the scene, and, acting light beacons, weakening MaloMyotismon with their light, they summoned their human partners into the DigiWorld. However, the children implanted with the Dark Spores believed that victory was impossible... and MaloMyotismon began to feed off their fear once more. The DigiDestined managed to get them to talk about their dreams, which they realised were not as meaningless as they had been led to believe. Weakened by this positive energy, MaloMyotismon’s body began to discorporate, and his spirit floated into the sky, trying to spread itself. The DigiDestined of the world all united their power, and used their Digivices to energise Imperialdramon, who used his Giga Crusher attack to obliterate Myotismon’s spirit for good.
MaloMyotismon first appears in silhouette form in “BlackWarGreymon’s Destiny.” He appears in the flesh in “Oikawa’s Shame.” His voice is supplied by Richard Epcar.
