Digimon Ghost Game[edit]

During "Pyramid", Ancient Sphinxmon turned humans into stone slabs after they failed to answer the riddles he asked them, leaving only their shoes behind. Among them was Tsukiyono Ruli's friend, Kaoru, which led her and the rest to search for him close to cultural locations. Amanokawa Hiro and Gammamon finally found him after he turned a painter into stone, but it only ended in Hiro also being transformed, as well as Higashimitarai Kiyoshiro, who arrived soon afterwards. Gammamon and Jellymon went back to Ruli and told her what had happened, and then they went to ask Mummymon for help, who correctly deduced this was AncientSphinxmon's doing. Soon after, a massive but incomplete pyramid appeared in the sky, built with the stone slabs. Ruli flew on top of Airdramon to get close to it, and AncientSphinxmon appeared before them, explaining how the pyramid would bring Pharaohmon, the ruler of the ancient Digital World, into the human world, thus turning it into said ancient world, which AncientSphinxmon considered superior to human civilization.

Angoramon Warp Evolved into Lamortmon to fight AncientSphinxmon, alongside the rest of the Digimon, but they were easily defeated by the Ultimate-level. Ruli tried to help Lamortmon, only for AncientSphinxmon to hit Airdramon, knocking Ruli out of the skies. AncientSphinxmon then went to turn Ruli into a stone slab, the capstone of the pyramid, but Lamortmon and Ruli refused to give up as they loved human culture and wished to learn more about it, which caused Lamortmon to Ultimate Evolve into Diarbbitmon for the first time. Diarrbitmon easily overpowered AncientSphinxmon, destroying his Dark Blast, but then AncientSphinxmon tried to drag him into the world of death with his Necro Eclipse. Diarrbitmon managed to break free and accidentally pushed AncientSphinxmon into the vortex, and was then unable to save him. With AncientSphinxmon dead, the stone slabs returned to their human forms and Pharaohmon did not Realize into the human world.
