⇨ Japanese
Built from the body of a cursed Jyureimon, it is an Ultimate Puppet Digimon. It is thought that it was probably a single fiendish hacker that constructed Pinochimon from Jyureimon's data. It has an appearance like a marionette, but it can move under its own volition. Its personality is detestable, as it tells fibs, and when a computer presents false information, it is the work of Pinochimon. Its Special Move is packing gunpowder into its revolver-style hammer, then striking with its strongest technique (Bullet Hammer). If one suffers this attack, they will probably vanish without a trace, not just from the hammer's blow but also from the explosion of the gunpowder.

Digimon Adventure[edit]

Pinochimon was one of the Dark Masters, a group of four Ultimate level Digimon born of Apocalymon's chaos. While the Chosen Children were in the real world combating Vamdemon, he and the other Dark Masters successfully conquered and reformatted the Digital World, twisting it into Spiral Mountain. He was the leader of the Wind Guardians, and his domain was the forest, in which he lived in a large mansion.

Pinochimon was a spoiled and selfish Digimon, trusting no-one, slaughtering his minions at the slightest provocation, and claiming that everything and everyone should go his way at all times. Pinochimon's initial efforts to combat the Chosen Children relied on trickery, using his toys to move them around the forest and allowing Jyureimon to convince Ishida Yamato to turn against Yagami Taichi, resulting in Yamato, Kido Jou and Tachikawa Mimi departing from the main group. When the remaining five Chosen cornered him, he didn't even attempt to combat them himself, instead setting a squad of Red Vagimon and his animated mansion on them, then fleeing the scene.

As he fled, he slaughtered one of his Red Vagimon servants which attempted to follow him, and shortly thereafter encountered Yamato and Metal Garurumon. Disgusted by his callous murder of the Red Vagimon, Metal Garurumon shrugged off Pinochimon's attempt to control him and killed him with a point-blank Cocytus Breath. As he died, Pinochimon lamented the words of Jyureimon and still failed to comprehend where he had gone wrong.

Digimon Xros Wars & The Evil Death General and the Seven Kingdoms[edit]

Pinochimon was a denizen of the Dust Zone. Though initially tricked by Grand Locomon into attacking Xros Heart in exchange for leaving the residents of Dust Zone alone, he had a change of heart and allied with them when Grand Locomon indicated he was not going to follow through on his end of the deal. He later gave Kudou Taiki the Metal Garurumon DigiMemory.

Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time[edit]

One year later, the same Pinochimon ended up in DigiQuartz and lost control of himself and manipulated several classmates of Akashi Tagiru and Amano Yuu into constructing a powerful robot for his use, Giga Breakdramon. In the ensuing fight with Astamon and the rampant Giga Breakdramon, Taiki and Shoutmon's actions snapped him out of it; distraught with his actions, Pinochimon had Taiki DigiXros him with Shoutmon, enabling him to defeat Giga Breakdramon.

Digimon Adventure tri.[edit]

The same Pinochimon appeared in the flashback while the original Chosen Children battle against the Dark Masters.

Digimon Adventure[edit]

Pinochimon is one of the Dark Masters. He controls the Forest Area of Spiral Mountain.

He first appeared in front of Ishida Yamato and Takaishi Takeru in Episode 52, "The Dangerous Game! Pinochimon!", after teleporting the Chosen Children and Partner Digimon to various spots and separating them. He wanted to play with Takeru, ignoring Yamato's threats entirely until they angered him so he hit him. Because Takeru refused to play with him, Pinochimon threatened to kill Yamato, so Takeru relented and joined him.

At Pinochimon's house, Pinochimon tells Takeru to play tag, with Takeru having to hide. Pinochimon's underlings, Blossomon and Mushmon, wondered if he was one of their lord's new toys. Pinochimon asked them if they had seen Takeru, but despite them honestly answering him, Pinochimon attacked them because he didn't find Takeru there. Finally finding Takeru, Pinochimon wanted to break his legs, but had run out of ammo after several previous attacks. Taking the chance, Takeru complained about how boring everything was, since it was just doing the same over and over again, and therefore Pinochimon was boring too. Pinochimon said no one had ever said that to him before, so Takeru surmissed he had no friends, which Pinochimon denied, so Takeru asked him to meet them, which Pinochimon also denied, proving he had no friends. Pinochimon then decided to bring his friends to prove Takeru wrong, which gave Takeru the chance to escape, meeting Patamon on the way. Afterwards, Pinochimon angrily accepted that Takeru wanted nothing with him after he escaped and broke his machine.

Pinochimon destroyed the Koromon Village at some point prior to Sub-Episode 19, "Injured Koromon", which happens after Episode 52, "The Dangerous Game! Pinochimon!", and the Koromon in it had to run away.

After Yamato and Metal Garurumon left Jyureimon in Episode 53, "Clash! The Ultimate Digimon", the latter confirmed to Pinochimon that his strategy was successful, a strategy to make War Greymon and Metal Garurumon fight each other. Pinochimon found this amusing and wanted to see it himself. Jyureimon told him to be careful of the Chosen Children, as even he would lose if he underestimated them, because they had something he lacked. This greatly angered Pinochimon, who killed Jyureimon in response.

After Kido Jo and Tachikawa Mimi helped Orgemon in Episode 54, "Metal Etemon's Counterattack", Pinochimon appeared and offered the group a riddle: what was he missing? He ordered them to answer him fast or he'd kill them, and took their lack of answer as them not wanting to answer him, so he was going to kill them. Before he could, however, another Digimon joined the fray: Metal Etemon. He explained while singing that, after being sucked into the dark hole, he survived in a hellish world with the purpouse of being reborn and taking revenge on the Chosen Children. Pinochimon was glad he was done, but he wasn't and called Pinochimon a kid, which angered him, so he attacked him. Taking their conflict as a chance, Jo's group ran away, with the two Ultimates realizing far too late and immediately deciding to pursue them once they did.

Pinochimon returned to his mansion in Episode 55, "Pursuit! Defeat Pinochimon!", where he surprisingly found the Chosen Children, together with Delumon and Floramon who ran away in fear. Yagami Taichi challenged Pinochimon, who accepted the challenge then left. When the Chosen Children caught up to him, he summoned three Red Vegimon who surrounded them. Pinochimon said they were his friends, so he wasn't lying to Takeru about having them, then sent them to fight the Chosen Children, then took the chance to run away. After catching up to him again, Pinochimon finally fought them directly.

Pinochimon is the 66th obligatory boss of the game, fighting the Chosen Children at the end of Episode 55, "Pursuit! Defeat Pinochimon!". He can deal damage to one Digimon with Bullet Hammer and Clean Up, or deal multiple hits to the entire party with Bullet Machinegun. He can take two actions per turn and return damage taken thanks to the Continuous Action and Counter support abilities. After being defeated, he drops the Tera Heal DigiPiece, which allows the user to perform the namesake technique which heals one Digimon to full.

After being defeated, Pinochimon remembered Jyureimon's words, but once again ignored them and fled. Having made some distance, a Red Vegimon asked him to take him too, but Pinochimon killed him because he'd just be a nuisance. Yamato and Metal Garurumon then showed up, the former questioning him about Red Vegimon being his friend. Pinochimon thought they were still on his side and told them to go fight the other Chosen Children, but Yamato refused to listen to someone that killed his own friends. This angered Pinochimon, who tried to attack them, only to fall to Metal Garurumon's Cocytus Breath. As he laid defeated, Pinochimon remembered Jyureimon once again, asking him what he was missing, then finally died.

After the Chosen Children returned to Subspace from the sea of data in Episode 62, "The Final Dark Digimon", they were taken by a strange light into a new area with six coloured doors, and a seventh door between them with a chain of each colour. Behind the green door, the Chosen Children found Pinochimon. Takeru and Patamon wanted to take care of him to show how strong they became. Patamon realized this was Takeru's Hope, which made power flow through his body. Patamon then warp evolved into Seraphimon for the first time.

Pinochimon is an optional boss fight in Episode 62, "The Final Dark Digimon", obtained if the player got at least 35 points of bond rankings for Takeru. Patamon will evolve for the first time into Seraphimon for no SP cost and remain in the form for the battle. After being defeated, he drops a Tera Heal + DigiPiece, which allows the user to perform the namesake technique to heal all allies to full HP.

With Pinochimon defeated, both the green chain and door disappeared.

Pinochimon and Jyureimon serve as the mid-bosses of the optional Digital Dungeon: ζ, where they fight the Chosen Children together. Defeating them grants the player two Meats and a Life Saver Kit.
