Digitama (デジタマ, Dejitama; Dub: Digi-Egg), also referred to as Level 0[1] and Digi-egg[2], are eggs from which Digimon are born; they are the beginning and the end of all Digimon.[3] It is a portmanteau of the words "Digital" and "Tamago" (卵), egg in Japanese, hence it is literally translated as "Digi-Egg".

They come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes and typically hatch into Baby I Digimon, but will sometimes hatch directly into a higher form, even an Adult Digimon like Numemon.[4] In rare instances, it is possible for a single Digitama to produce twins.[5][6] Both Victory Greymon and Z'd Garurumon possess an evolutionary code that differs from Digimon that were naturally born in the Digital World, and it is thought they evolved from Digitama that were produced due to artificial data intervention.[7][8] Random data roaming about the Digital World may coalesce into a Digitama, or alternatively human involvement, as was the case with Kuramon whereby the aggression generated by the malice of people who abuse the Computer Network, and the conflicts which are unfolding on the Network, manifested, creating a single Digitama condensing humanity's destructive instinct within it.[9]

As a result of evolving from a Mamemon that fused with file management software data, Catch Mamemon seems to think that managing Digitama is its duty.[10]

Digimon that are deleted due to their life span ending, or being defeated in battle, are ultimately transmitted to the Dark Area where Anubimon has the ability to reset them back to a Digitama depending on how good their data is.[11] However, should that data be evil, it imprisons them within eternal darkness.[11] Furthermore, the process of being reincarnated as a Digitama is circumvented if Digimon are consigned to oblivion by the Digimon crowned as the Seven Great Demon Lords, and their data is sent to the center of the Dark Area, and becomes the flesh and blood of the Demon Lords.[12] Valkyrimon produces an aurora from the shining armor it wears, which resurrects the data of heroes that have fallen in battle, and returns them to a new Digitama.[13] After the death of a Jogressed Digimon, instead of reincarnating into two separate Digitama, sometimes the two Digimon will be reborn as a single combined Digitama with the potential to grow stronger than their previous forms. There are very rare occasions where Digimon have been reborn from within the corpse of their data instead of a Digitama as according to one theory, when Millenniumon died in a furious battle, the dark soul it possessed was reborn as Zeed Millenniumon.[14]

Appearances[edit]

Anime[edit]

Digimon Adventure[edit]

In the Village of Beginnings, many Baby Digimon were shown to be hatched out of Digitama. Later on in Adventure, Takeru’s Angemon reverts back into a Digitama after being defeating Devimon.

Digimon Frontier[edit]

Whenever a Digimon is scanned, they leave behind a Digitama, which then flies off to the Village of Beginnings where it will eventually be reborn.[15]

After Mercuremon scanned Seraphimon, he left a Digitama behind, which Orimoto Izumi grabbed before it could fly to the Village of Beginnings. Said Digitama was then taken by Bokomon, who cared for it as his own child.[16] Seraphimon's Digitama could give the Chosen Children the power to perform Double Spirit Evolution.[17]

After Aldamon defeated and scanned Black Seraphimon, his D-Scanner released Seraphimon's Digicode, which returned to Seraphimon's Digitama. Thanks to that, it was reborn as Patamon.[18]

After the Chosen Children got to the Village of Beginnings, they found many other Digitamas. When they fought Dynasmon and Lord Knightmon, the Digitamas of the evil Ten Warriors were temporarily reborn to help them, though their effort was unsuccessful and the Royal Knights stole the Digicode of the Village of Beginnings. The Digitamas left behind were then taken to space for safekeeping.[19]

Digimon Savers[edit]

The Digital Accident Tactics Squad, DATS, was established to maintain the peace between the Real World and the Digital World by neutralizing any disruptions caused by Digimon, reverting them to their Digitama state and transporting them back to the Digital World via a Digital Dive. A Digimon reborn from their Digitama will normally not keep any of their memories, unless they are affected by a human's Digisoul.

After killing Piyomon, Mercurymon took his Digitama with him to the Digital World to prevent him from hatching again while "corrupted" by Daimon Chika's Digisoul. However, he hatched nonetheless, in a state of confusion while keeping some of his memories, which led him to turn berserk after Mercurymon attacked him, evolving into Aquilamon. He would return to being a Digitama once more after being defeated by Daimon Masaru and Rize Greymon as Garudamon[20].

Digimon killed by Kurata Akihiro's Gizmon: AT and Gizmon: XT do not return to being Digitama and are instead permanently deleted, with their Digimon Life Energy extracted[21]. Said energy was used to revive Belphemon, whose own Digitama Kurata found in the Digital World, sealed away[22].

When a Bio-Hybrid is defeated in combat, they separate into a human being and a Digitama, losing their ability to perform Hyper Bio Evolution[23].

Due to his Dark Evolution into Shine Greymon: Ruin Mode, Agumon died and returned to a Digitama[24]. He was later reborn as Koromon, seemingly without his memories, but his Tamer Masaru's Digisoul caused a miracle, allowing him to maintain his memories and evolve into Agumon once again[25].


Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time[edit]

After Arresterdramon: Superior Mode (Brave Snatcher) destroys Quartzmon's core with the Brave Snatcher, he is reborn as a Digitama, which becomes part of Akashi Tagiru's Collection. The Digitama was then taken by Shoutmon back to the Digital World for safe keeping.[26]

Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning[edit]

On February 29th, 1996, a Digitama appeared to the 4-year-old Ohwada Lui on his birthday. Said Digitama immediately hatched into Ukkomon, who became Lui's Partner Digimon.

Several years later, after Lui rejected Ukkomon, Ukkomon dissolved and became a Digitama once again, before disappearing.

At some point in February, 2012, a gigantic Digitama appeared above Tokyo Tower. It became a major focus of media attention, with a group of politicians (of which Yagami Taichi and Izumi Kōshirō were part of) who tried to decide how to act upon it. Lui realized it was Ukkomon's and tried climbing Tokyo Tower to get to it, only to fall, though he was rescued by Stingmon. Afterwards, Motomiya Daisuke and Ichijouji Ken brought Lui closer to the Digitama with Paildramon, but Ukkomon forced them to fall into it by striking them with an invisible tentacle, sending them into Lui's past, on the day they first met.

On February 29th, 2012, Lui's 20th birthday, the Digitama hatched into Big Ukkomon, who then started transferring millions of Digitama into the Real World to grant what he believed was Lui's wish, for every person in the world to become a Chosen Child. Lui ultimately managed to make him realize he was wrong and Imperialdramon: Fighter Mode killed him with a Giga Death. Afterwards, Ukkomon's Digitama, now palm-sized, appeared out of Lui's Digivice, which he kept with him.

Digimon Seekers[edit]

Digitama are formed from the data or "soul" of dead Digimon that is reborn in another part of the Digital World. Digitama that washed up in the flow of garbage data often end up in the Last Coast, which poachers take advantage of.

In "1-5: Eiji:Wolf of ninth avenue", four Espimon used by code crackers that were high school students to obtain Digitama in the Last Coast to sell them for money appeared. All of them were "bots", automatically controlled by tools. They were, however, surrounded by the Digipolice's Commandramon squads, led by Tamahime Satsuki. The only Digitama they had obtained was quickly seized by them, as were their tools and everything else they had. Said Digitama was then taken by Judge and his Pulsemon, leaving the Digipolice without evidence.

Digimon Card Game[edit]

Digitama is a type of card in the Digimon Card Game. Despite their name, they mostly represent Baby II-level Digimon. Digitama have a different card back than non-Digitama cards that shows an actual Digitama. As such, they can't go into the main deck, and instead are kept in a separate Digitama Deck that can have up to five cards in it.

During the Raising Phase, the turn player can "hatch" a Digitama, turning the top card of their Digitama Deck face-up and putting it in the Raising Area, so long as the Raising Area is empty. Digitama normally cannot be moved to the Battle Area, unless they have DP, and must be evolved into a Digimon that has DP before moving them. A Digimon cannot be moved to the Battle Area if it hatched that turn.
