Mirage Gaogamon: Burst Mode
He is a stoic, dedicated warrior who is boundlessly loyal to his partner. He is calm and collected, usually maintaining an air of dignity both on and off the battlefield. Like Thoma, Gaomon prefers a strategical approach to most things rather than to rush in headfirst. He follows Thoma's orders without question, responding to every command with a cry of "Yes, Master!" (イエス・マスター! Iesu Masutaa!) (Dub: "Sir, yes sir!"). Unlike Agumon, Gaomon will not often act on his own in a battle, but rather wait for his partner to direct him. It may seem like a blind devotion at first, but Gaomon has revealed that it is his unwavering trust and faith in his master that drives him to be so obedient, rather than mindless servitude. The two of them share a bond so deep that Gaomon is often able to understand what Thoma is thinking and planning, and will act without needing to be told. Though he never directly says it, Thoma is more precious than anything to Gaomon. Gaomon feels that his strong devotion will help to ease some of Thoma's pain, letting him know that he is never, ever alone.
Gaomon first appeared in episode three of Digimon Savers, in which he evolved to Gaogamon to battle a swarm of Petit Meramon. In Digimon Savers - Episode 15, he evolved to his perfect form, Mach Gaogamon, in order to defeat Metal Phantomon. Very little character development was given to Gaomon during the course of the series, and virtually no explanation of his past was given. Gaomon is the first partner Digimon to belong to a main character in which the viewer is not shown how Digimon and partner met.
Much in the same manner as Thoma, Gaomon initially came across as cold and distant. His personality offended Agumon, and the two of them clashed a bit. As time passed, however, Gaomon warmed to his digimon companions as Thoma warmed to his human ones. He showed a bit of a fondness and a kinship for Agumon, respecting him as a fellow fighter despite their differences. Gaomon also displayed that he was capable of valiantly holding his own in the absence of his master, and thus being unable to evolve.
Mirage Gaogamon appears in the Super Digica Taisen card game.
