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 who manage the Digital World: Iliad, which exists on a different Server from the Digital World ruled by Yggdrasill, run by a host computer known as Homeros.
The Olympos XII possess abilities rivaling those 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.
It seems that because of Yggdrasill's will, the Royal Knights will eventually cross Servers to the Digital World: Iliad Server and meet the Olympos XII. Whether the Royal Knights and the Olympos XII end up engaging in war or forming an alliance remains to be seen.

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.
Several members of the Olympos XII appear as recurrent characters in some of the side-quests of the game.
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.
After Aiba collects all of the Olympos XII medals, the Medal Man rewards them with a Giga HP Generator and Giga SP Generator.
Minervamon is found in the Logic Volcano, and asks Takuto/Shiki to deliver a gift to her fellow Olympos member, Dianamon, who is in the Frost Cathedral. After accepting the gift, Dianamon decides to send a letter in return to Minervamon, sending the tamer to deliver it. Minervamon then once again sends the tamer back to Dianamon with another gift, and Dianamon sends the tamer back to Minervamon with a gift as well. Upon opening Dianamon's gift, Minervamon is covered in water, and becomes enraged - assuming Dianamon was pranking her. Minervamon runs to the Frost Cathedral, arriving before the tamer, and during the duo's argument, Minervamon learns that Dianamon had carved her a sculpture made of ice - which melted due to the heat of the Logic Volcano, as well as the fact that Dianamon didn't like the gifts Minervamon had been sending. When the tamer tries to calm the two of them down, they attack the tamer in an attempt to murder them so they couldn't tell others of their argument. After their defeat, they come to their senses and join the City, joining the Colosseum where Minervamon works during the day and gives rewards if the tamer's Digimon have 100 discipline and 0 mood, whilst Dianamon works during the night and if the tamer's Digimon have 0 discipline and 100 mood.
