Dub Name Fusion Loader

The Digimon Xros Loader (デジモンクロスローダー Dejimon Kurosurōdā; Dub: Fusion Loader), commonly just referred to as the Xros Loader, is a model of Digivice that is used by Generals and Digimon Hunters in the Digimon Xros Wars anime and manga.



The Xros Loader is a large, bulky, and elongated model of Digivice with metallic detailing. Like an early-model iPod and some other MP3 player brands, it is controlled by a mechanical wheel with a central button. Along its top is a cover that pops open when performing a DigiXros or evolution to reveal a golden V sigil. There are connectors mounted to its top that can be plugged into the connectors on another Xros Loader to peform a Double Xros, and it has a slot for external memory media on its lower left side that accepts Code Crown and DigiMemory cards.

Some Xros Loader users, like Kudou Taiki, store their Xros Loaders in special carry cases mounted on their belts when not in use.[1]

When Xros Loaders are new and do not have an owner yet, they are a blank white color. When a human adopts one, it changes color to match them, with the color sometimes being said to reflect qualities of theirs (for example, the yellow color of Amano Yuu's second Xros Loader is said to represent his determination,[2] while the deep crimson color of Akashi Tagiru's is said to reflect the fierceness of his coming fights[3]). In the first two seasons, the color change happens when the human speaks their name into the Xros Loader as prompted to by the Digimon who is giving it to them,[1] but in Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time, it automatically happens when they touch the Xros Loader.[3]

Digimon Xros Wars & The Evil Death Generals and the Seven Kingdoms[edit]

Omegamon presents Kudou Taiki with his Xros Loader.

The Xros Loader is an invention of Dark Knightmon's, who developed it following his rediscovery of the DigiXros ability as part of his efforts to rival and, eventually, surpass his brother, Bagramon, by DigiXrossing with him.[26][27] Seeking out humans strong enough to use DigiXros as a power to their benefit, he and Bagramon distributed the first two Xros Loaders to Amano Yuu (Dark Knightmon's choice),[28] and Aonuma Kiriha (Bagramon's choice).[29] Yuu is never actually given the chance to use his Xros Loader, as Dark Knightmon's plan is for him to use the Darkness Loader instead. Instead, Dark Knightmon gives it to his sister, Amano Nene, and manipulates her into assisting him so that she can find Yuu (unknowingly held by Dark Knightmon as a hostage), with the plan of abandoning her once the Darkness Loader is ready to use.[30]

A third Xros Loader comes into the possession of Omegamon, who chooses Kudou Taiki as its user.[26] When Taiki finds Shoutmon severely wounded in the Real World, Omegamon presents the Xros Loader to Taiki, to use to save Shoutmon's life, and takes him and his friends, Hinomoto Akari and Tsurugi Zenjirou, into the Digital World.[2]

When Xros Heart enters Dust Zone, a Gerbemon steals Taiki's Xros Loader, and Pinochimon steals it from the Gerbemon on the orders of Grand Locomon as part of a plan to use it to open a gate to escape Dust Zone. After Grand Locomon betrays and abandons him, and the inhabitants of Dust Zone team up to save him from Grand Locomon, Pinochimon has a change of heart, frees the Xros Loader from Grand Locomon's mechanism, and returns it to Taiki.[31]

Eventually, Dark Knightmon's plan is fulfilled when Kiriha touches the Darkness Loader, readying it for use. He then abandons Nene, and Yuu's old Xros Loader.[30] In the aftermath of this, Nene is temporarily unable to use the Xros Loader due to exhaustion.[17] Once she recovers and joins Xros Heart, the Xros Loader changes color from the original black color that Yuu had given it, to her own color, lavender.[32]

After his Book is destroyed by Arkadimon, Wisemon sets up a new laboratory inside Taiki's Xros Loader, which he uses to perform research that assists Xros Heart in figuring out obstacles and technology that it faces.[17]

When Taiki, Zenjirou, and Akari return to the real world and fight Tactimon, Akari and Zenjirou's courage and friendship grant a new power to Taiki's Xros Loader that enables Shoutmon to Super Evolve. Kiriha's Xros Loader also receives this power later when Dracomon cheers for Metal Greymon in the fight against Dorbickmon.[20]

In preparation for the final battle with Bagramon and his forces in the Real World, Taiki recruits Yuu and inspires him to make amends for what he had done as Dark Knightmon's pawn. In response to this, the Darkness Loader (which Dark Knightmon had abandoned when his loss of Yuu rendered it useless) transforms into a fourth, yellow Xros Loader of his own, signifying Yuu's determination. At the climax of the battle, when the completed Code Crown turns against Bagramon and chooses Taiki as its user, it enters his Xros Loader and unlocks the ability to perform a Final Xros.[2]

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

Akashi Tagiru accepts his Xros Loader from the Old Clock Shop Man.

In order to stop Quartzmon from stealing the data of Digimon that it abducts into DigiQuartz,[11] the Old Clock Shop Man (actually the reincarnation of Bagramon) recruits children to become Digimon Hunters and distributes Xros Loaders to them. When he finds Akashi Tagiru in DigiQuartz, he takes him back to his clock shop in the Real World, and recruits him and gives him a Xros Loader as well. He is intrigued by the crimson color that Tagiru's Xros Loader takes on, interpreting it as an omen of fierce hunts to come.[3]

The only new owner of a Xros Loader who is not an active Digimon Hunter is Funabashi Kiichi. He had still received his Xros Loader from the Old Clock Shop Man after his first meeting with his partner, Locomon, but he had not been inducted into the Digimon Hunt, and is content to just give other children rides on Locomon.[33]

When Mizuki first sees Dagomon in the oceans of the Real World, the Old Clock Shop Man appears in front of her, fishing on a rock in the middle of the ocean, to recruit her to be a Hunter and give her a Xros Loader.[34]

In the final battle with Quartzmon's forces, the Old Clock Shop Man gives Xros Loaders to Hinomoto Akari and Tsurugi Zenjirou so that they can use members of Xros Heart to help in the fight.[11]


Digimon Xros Wars (Manga)[edit]

The Xros Loader is an invention of Bagramon's. His motivation for developing them was to get the measure of the hope and despair that humanity feels, and therefore their potential. The Xros Loaders that he released into the Real World were programmed to seek out children who demonstrated evidence of a potential Xros Code and bring them into the Digital World. This resulted in Aonuma Kiriha and the Amano sisters, Nene and Kotone, being brought into the Digital World.[19][25] Common Digimon are aware of the existence of Xros Loaders and consider them to be "legendary" items.[35]

On June 21st 20XX, when Kudou Taiki finds Shoutmon severely wounded in the Real World, a mysterious voice presents the Xros Loader to Taiki, to use to save Shoutmon's life, and takes him and his friends, Hinomoto Akari and Tsurugi Zenjirou, into the Digital World.[36] When Nene examines Taiki's Xros Loader, she sees the color as representing fierce, refreshing boldness, overflowing with fire.[37]

During the fight in Snow Zone, Zenjirou uses the Chibick Sword to knock Kiriha's Xros Loader out of his hands, as part of Taiki's strategy to prevent Kiriha from DigiXrossing so that he could gain the advantage.[15]

Dark Knightmon's original plan is to create a Darkness Loader by transforming a Xros Loader, which he expects to achieve by having Shademon consume the Xros Code of three Generals.[19] Instead, Nene's Xros Loader transforms into a Darkness Loader when she initiates a Forced DigiXros of herself with Shademon.[38]

Within a few months after Nene fuses with Shademon, Kotone acquires a Xros Loader of her own.[18]

During his time in the Real World, Wizarmon manufactures three new Xros Loaders based on Taiki and Kotone's.[39] Two of them react to Hinomoto Akari and Tsurugi Zenjirou's support for Taiki and Shoutmon in the fight with Tactimon, and change color to become theirs.[40]

Taiki, Kiriha and Kotone enter Zeed Millenniumon's core in an attempt to save Nene, and use their Xros Loaders to track the location of her Darkness Loader.[25] While Taiki distracts Bagramon, Kiriha and Kotone use their Xros Loaders on Nene's Darkness Loader to try and commune with her soul. When they restore Nene's sense of hope and cause Shademon to transform into Luminamon, Nene's Darkness Loader also transforms back into a Xros Loader, with a different color to her original black. The four of them use their Xros Loaders together to perform a Forced Xros Open that splits Zeed Millenniumon back into all of its constituent Digimon.[5]

Wizarmon holds onto the third Xros Loader until after he is hit by Zeed Millenniumon's Time Destroyer and sent to the super-dimensional space-time void. Having the Xros Loader with him keeps his data stable and protects him from being destroyed by the noise data in the void. He considers examining its logs to find a way back, but when a fissure in spacetime appears nearby and shows him Shoutmon and Taiki close to the day that they met, he realizes that all along, he had been the mysterious voice that had given Taiki his Xros Loader, and that the third Xros Loader he possesses was always meant for Taiki. Using his magic and the Xros Loader's abilities, he opens a connection between the void and the Real World, casts the Xros Loader into the Real World to appear in front of Taiki, and instructs him on how to use it to save Shoutmon.[41]
