|Dub Name||Corrupted Beast Spirit of Darkness|
The Corrupted Beast Spirit of Darkness (闇のビーストスピリット Yami no Bīsuto Supiritto), also known as the Spirit of Darkness B (闇のスピリットB Yami no Supiritto Bī) is one of the twenty Legendary Spirits. It is an alternative form of the Beast Spirit of Darkness, which contains the power of Ancient Sphinxmon of the Warrior Ten, that has been transformed by Cherubimon's magic. It allows its user to evolve into the Beast Form Hybrid Digimon Velgrmon.
When Cherubimon turned Kimura Kouichi into Duskmon, he did not give him the Corrupted Beast Spirit of Darkness at first. He only gives it to Duskmon when Kouchi/Duskmon, while fighting Minamoto Kouji (as Beowolfmon), recognizes Kouji as his brother and hesitates, allowing Kouji to overpower him. Cherubimon intervenes and decides that Kouichi's remaining human heart and feelings are a weakness, so he forces the Beast Spirit on Duskmon to Slide Evolve him into Velgrmon, to turn him into an immensely powerful "true Warrior of Darkness" who is bent on getting vengeance on Kouji for the hard life that he and their mother have lived.
With Kanbara Takuya's assistance, Kouji (as Beowolfmon) defeats Duskmon/Velgrmon and scans the Corrupted Beast and Human Spirits of Darkness, along with the Human Spirit of Wood,[N 1] freeing Kouichi from Cherubimon's control. The Corrupted Spirits are briefly stored in Kouji's D-Scanner.
When Kouichi stands up to Cherubimon, his confession of both his past hatred for Kouji and how meeting Kouji for real has changed him awakens the Spirits of Darkness and they transform back into their true forms. Kouichi acquires a D-Scanner and the true Spirits of Darkness enter it, and he becomes able to Spirit Evolve into Löwemon and Kaiser Leomon, instead of Duskmon and Velgrmon.
