Digimon Adventure[edit]

Apocalymon was a Digimon born from Digimon that died during the evolutionary process. His existence distorted the fabric of the Digital World, causing time to pass faster in it than in the Real World. He created the four Dark Masters to wreak his vengeance on the Digital World. After the Chosen Children defeat the Dark Masters, Apocalymon appears to face them. He first lashes out with the attacks of other Digimon, then uses his Death Evolution attack to devolve the Chosen Children's Digimon. They ready their Crests to re-evolve, but Apocalymon uses Devimon's Death Claw attack to destroy the Crests, and then disassembles the Chosen Children's data. However, in their dismantled state, they took courage and learned that they could evolve their Digimon without their physical Crests. Their data reassembled before Apocalymon. Working together, the Chosen Children destroyed all of Apocalymon's claws and his humanoid body. Apocalymon declared that he would destroy both the Digital World and the Real World and used his Grand Death Big Bang technique, but the Chosen Children's Digivices created a force field to contain the explosion.
