In NEW DIGITAL MONSTER BEGINS, a Gabumon appears on a park, alongside a Tentomon.

While no actual Gabumon appears later on in the series, it nonetheless has several cameos. In Digimon Identified Memory, Gabumon appears in the illustration of the Gabumon Dim Card owned by Greymon's Tamer, and Pulsemon's Tamer is shown to have a Gabumon plushie alongside an Agumon one. In VITAL BRACELET Lab, a Gabumon overlay with its data is one of the many overlays that appears in the Vital Bracelet Lab when Palmon and her Tamer visit it.

After the polyhedron is destroyed and Adventure:'s Taichi reawakens in his world, he finds himself surrounded by his friends once again, with Sora explaining that he fell and blacked out.

Gabou also makes a cameo, alongside Leo, as V-Tamer's Yagami Taichi explains to his Adventure: counterpart that they fought the endless hordes of Virus Digimon and could do nothing but seal the polyhedron that caused them to appear. He then properly appears at the end of the chapter after the polyhedron was destroyed, badly wounded but happy.

Video Games[edit]

Digital Monster Ver. S[edit]

Digimon World[edit]

Gabumon appears as an obtainable Child-level Data type Digimon in Digimon World. When the Player starts the game, he's asked by Jijimon two questions, and if you say "No" or "Night" to his questions, you'll receive a Gabumon as your first Digimon, otherwise if you answer "Yes" or "Day", you'll receive an Agumon instead.

A Gabumon is found hiding in Misty Trees. After you completed Tonosama Gekomon and Jyureimon's quests, Jyureimon will dissipate and clear the fog of the Misty Trees making it easier to see, so a Gabumon will be revealed hiding in a corner of a cliff at the north of Misty Trees. When you talk to it, it will engage a battle and once it is defeated, it joins the city, and assists Drimogemon in the Treasure House because it's bored and has nothing else to do. It only appears if you have recruited Drimogemon.

Several Gabumon also work for Orgemon as members of the "Bandits" that the Player has to defeat, as he's assaulted by some in the Great Canyon and are found guarding the Ogre Fortress. After the Player defeats Orgemon for the first time, the gang of Gabumon will decrease by two, and finally separate from their boss when it has been defeated for the second time in the Secret Beach Cave, home to Whamon.

Koromon evolves into Gabumon after 24 in-game hours have elapsed only if its Defense, Speed and Brains stats are higher as opposed to Agumon's HP, MP and Offense stat requirements. Gabumon can also evolve into 10 different types of Digimon depending on the stats and Care Mistakes made:

Finishing Technique - Petit Fire:

Gabumon spits out a fiery breath against the enemy, burning them.
