The Olympos XII (オリンポス十二神 or alternatively オリンポス１２神 Orinposu Jūnishin, lit. "Twelve Gods of Olympus") are a group of twelve powerful God Man Digimon, they are of noble character. The group was modeled after the Roman analogue of the Twelve Olympians, the "Dii Consentes".
The Olympos XII manage the Digital World: Iliad managed by Homeros, which exists on a different Server from the Digital World ruled by Yggdrasill; however, they possess ability rivaling that of the Royal Knights, so the knights have not felt the need to personally interfere in Iliad's affairs. The members of Olympos XII protect their own domains while maintaining a position of neutrality regarding the incidents which arise in the Digital World, but some Digimon with a similar goal, like Plutomon, are excluded from their number due to their cruelty in its pursuit. The forces that defy the will of the Olympos XII and oppose them in battle are never-ending, to the point that the hatred of the Digimon they've defeated has been reborn as Titamon, who seeks to have their heads.

Mercurymon is the first major "villain" of Savers. He first appeared when he opened the Digital Gate in his lair to go to the real world to find Falcomon. He was eventually weakened by one of Kurata Akihiro's Gizmon: XT and his Digitama permanently deleted.
The Olympos XII is one of the rock bands invited to perform at the Shoutmon's coronation concert.
In the Digital World: Iliad, the host computer known as Homeros wanted the Digimon to be guided by their wild instincts, free will, even if that meant their self-destruction (a modified version of the Prometheus myth). The Digital World: Iliad eventually collapsed because the Olympos XII taught the Digimon there the concept of good and evil, against the will of Homeros. In retaliation, Homeros gave power to Plutomon over the titans (An army of Titamon), and the Olympos XII were forced to flee to the Digital World of Yggdrasill, where they learned their lesson and became neutral. Plutomon, already in the Digital World of Yggdrasill, pretends to take revenge of Jupitermon (now amnesic and in his adult form of Aegiomon) for not having been accepted in origin like a member of the Olympos XII.
