Digimon Adventure 02[edit]

Zhuqiaomon is one of the Four Holy Beasts, who exist to maintain the balance of the Digital World. Although it does not appear, Qinglongmon says in "Gigantic Ultimate, Qinglongmon" that it, along with the other Four Holy Beasts, had fought a long battle with the Dark Masters and been sealed away. They had required the use of the Crests of Yagami Taichi's group of Chosen Children to break the seal and be freed. They were also responsible for releasing the Digimentals for use by Motomiya Daisuke's group of Chosen Children in response to the development of the Dark Towers.

Digimon Tamers[edit]

Zhuqiaomon is one of the Four Holy Beasts, the master and creator of the Deva, and a major antagonist of Digimon Tamers. It sends the Deva to recover the Digi-Entelechia (Culumon), so that it can use his power to resist the D-Reaper. It has a negative view of humanity and resents them for creating the D-Reaper, and perceives Digimon who rely on human Tamers to evolve as perverse. It inhabits Suzaku Gate, on the highest plane of the Digital World.

In "Showdown with Zhuqiaomon! Saint Galgomon, Ultimate Evolution", the Tamers arrive at Suzaku Gate to confront Zhuqiaomon. It easily overpowers all of the Tamers' Digimon until Terriermon and Lee Jianliang Matrix Evolve into Saint Galgomon for the first time. The sight of a human and Digimon merging enrages Zhuqiaomon and it demolishes the Suzaku Gate around them. Saint Galgomon succeeds in temporarily subduing Zhuqiaomon, but it continues attacking the group in "True Enemy Gets to Move! The Battle of the Four Holy Beasts" until Qinglongmon intervenes. The two Holy Beasts clash over their conflicting ideologies about the Digi-Entelechy and the Tamers, and Zhuqiaomon insists on fighting the Tamers. Matsuda Takato and Guilmon Matrix Evolve into Dukemon to fight back, but Qinglongmon once again intervenes to stop the fighting and insists on turning their attention to their common enemy, the D-Reaper. Zhuqiaomon then assists Qinglongmon in explaining the situation to the Tamers.

In "Whirling Ultimate Flower! Sakuyamon Evolves", Zhuqiaomon follows Qinglongmon and the Tamers to a ravine where the D-Reaper is starting to emerge. It descends into the ravine to try and stop the D-Reaper's advance, but it is quickly forced to retreat when the D-Reaper's bubbles wound its wings.

In "Evolutionary Radiance: Shining Evolution", Zhuqiaomon gathers with the other Holy Beasts to beseech Culumon to use its Shining Evolution. It is present when all of the Digimon whom Culumon has caused to evolve gather to fight the D-Reaper. As the Tamers and their partner Digimon prepare to take the Ark back to the Real World, it concedes that while it still does not accept partnerships between humans and Digimon, it will no longer attempt to interfere.

In "The Mysterious Girl! The Bringer of Miracles Dobermon", Dobermon tells the Tamers that Zhuqiaomon, along with the other Holy Beasts and the other Digimon, is fighting the D-Reaper in the Digital World.

In "Dreaming Power is Our Future", Zhuqiaomon and the other Holy Beasts emerge into the D-Reaper's portion in the real world through its Transphotic Eddy, and drag its Reaper agent back into the Digital World.

Digimon Adventure tri.[edit]

Zhuqiaomon is one of the Four Holy Beasts, and the partner Digimon of one of the five original Chosen Children. It appears in "Loss", in a flashback to the final battle between the Dark Masters and the Chosen Children. Homeostasis, acting through Himekawa Maki, empowers the Chosen Child's Hippogriffomon[N 1] to evolve into Zhuqiaomon. Zhuqiaomon and the other newly-created Holy Beasts channel their attacks into Bakumon (as Megadramon), who forms one powerful burst that defeats the Dark Masters. The Holy Beasts then fall to the ground and create pillars of light that converge to seal the darkness away.

Additional Information[edit]

References Notes
  1. Hippogriffomon's evolution into one of the Four Holy Beasts occurs off-screen in "Loss". The notion that it evolved into Zhiquiaomon, apart from being the most logical option compared to Baihumon or Qinglongmon, is supported by Digimon ReArise, which features evolution lines for the Four Holy Beasts that are directly based on "Loss": Zhuqiaomon's line is MuchomonAkatorimon → Hippogriffomon → Zhuqiaomon.
