An ultimate Ancient Dragon Digimon that existed in ancient times. There is a clear distinction between it and other Digimon in terms of existence or ability. Also, Imperialdramon is called the Dragon Mode, but there seems to exist a "Fighter Mode" that is able to liberate all of its power. However, it is said that that form has never been seen. Due to its immense power, controlling it is next to impossible, and depending on how it is raised, it may become a savior or a god of destruction. Its Special Move is firing super-massive dark matter, swallowing everything in a dark space (Mega Death). This technique is a terrifying ability that completely annihilates everything within a radius of a few hundred meters around the impact-point of the dark matter.

Digimon World: Digital Card Arena[edit]

Imperialdramon appears in Flame City's Battle Café after Sage Tower third and last Battle Arena is cleared. However, he won't speak to the player until after Flame City's fourth Extra Arena is cleared, which is already open if Imperialdramon is in the Battle Café.

Imperialdramon is the third and final opponent of Flame City's fourth and final Extra Arena. Fighting the ultimate battle is his mission, and while he acknowledges the player's power and skill, he decides to show him what a real battle is. Imperialdramon plays the Invincible Emperor deck, a Red/Flame, Blue/Water and Green/Nature deck with 5 attack, 4 defense and 4 evolution speed. It is the ultimate Imperial deck and is full of strong Digimon. Upon losing, he's surprised that his Invincible Emperor deck has been defeated, then tells the player to seek the ultimate battle that even he couldn't and promises to help him, before crowning the player as the new emperor. From his second defeat onwards, be it in the Arena or in the Café, he instead points out the Invincible Emperor deck may not deserve its name anymore, then encourages the player the same way, but adds that he does it because the player is the new emperor.

After the Extra Arena is cleared, defeating Imperialdramon five times in a row in the Battle Café will award the player the Wild Sevens card.
