God (神 "Kami"?) is an immeasurably powerful being of ultimate goodness and infinite love that created the Digital World and its laws, and is possibly a human. He resides within the Digital World's central "Kernel", which is protected by the Three Great Angels and the rest of the Angel Digimon. The Three Great Angels, Seraphimon, Cherubimon, and Ofanimon, were given the duty to execute God's enlightened laws, guard His wisdom, and impart His love and mercy, respectively, while Holy Angemon serves as a speaker for God's "Light" which seeks to preserve the order of the Digital World.
Angel Digimon are positioned near to God, with Seraphimon the closest of them all, but because of that extreme, they can easily fall into the opposite extreme of "Wickedness". In fact, Lucemon and Demon (while still a Seraphimon) instigated a failed rebellion against God, alongside many other Demon Lord Digimon, and were deleted to the Dark Area as punishment. Bagramon, one of the Demon Lords who took part, rebelled in rejection of what it says is the "unreasonable justice of the world", and so had the right side of its body ripped away. Although Bagramon would be forgiven if it repented before God, it refused to submit, and instead seeks to replace God's justice with its own "New Justice", with which it will banish God.
In Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01, God is mentioned twice. It is said that the castle Demon lives in was originally the home of God, who sealed the castle's entrance from humans because He didn't want humans to interfere. A rumor is also told that God's origin is on top of a floating sky tree, a holy land from where He descended.
