Not All Enemy Digimons are Bad

This blog post may contain minimal spoilers. Please read this only if you had seen this Episode.

EPISODE OVERVIEW

Hiro has read an article about a strange phenomenon that is currently happening in a museum, as well as the areas surrounding it. That museum is currently exhibiting and displaying mummies and other ancient treasures and relics from the ancient Egyptian civilization. He has heard a rumour about a mummy running amok and kidnapping people at night by wrapping them in a bandage.

To find out and to solve that incident, Hiro and Gammamon went inside the museum, and stayed up until it closed. Then, they have found and encountered another Hologram Ghost there! A Digimon named Mummymon has appeared, and Gammamon battles it! Will they able to defeat it, and find and rescue the people who were kidnapped by this Digimon?

EPISODE REVIEW

The month of October is considered to be a ‘horror’ month, because all things are just happening when the clock strikes at midnight. And also, this is the month in which it is also thrilling and scary, because it is just few days away from Christmas. I think there is a history behind that, so better research them by yourself.

Anyway, in this Episode, it shows how Hologram Ghosts (Digimons) can adapt easily to human environment, and they used to be living and dwelling in their home universe, the Digital World. I can see how Gammamon can easily adapt by just eating food which is only for humans like Hiro.

But then, Gammamon describes the taste of each food he eats. First, the salmon skin tastes ‘shiny’, instead of delicious. Then, he described a spicy food as ‘scary’. And finally, Gammamon described eating a sweet food as ‘strongest’. Yeah, some Digimons like him can define tastes of each food with an other adjective word! Weird, but interesting.

So then, the appearance of Mummymon, which is an Ultimate Level Digimon, is actually a resemblance of the late Baalmon (Reapmon). Yeah, and they were both wearing a bonnet headgear (or even bandana) on their heads.

So, in this Episode, we can get Gammamon’s first Digivolution! Just add the word ‘Betel’ at the beginning in Gammamon’s name. Somehow, it is a Digimon that is of Fire Element, and a Champion Level, perhaps? Yep, and that’s one of the rules of Digivolution.

In the end, they didn’t really finish off Mummymon, but instead it only shows BetelGammamon’s Special Attack, at least.

And then, it also shows that not all enemy Digimons that appear are bad. Digimons got only bad and evil when they are already driven by mind-control, hatred, vengeance, etc. But then, who is the one that makes these Digimons, who wander around from Digital World to Human World, go wild and be driven by those mentioned in the last sentence?

And finally, we are being foreshadowed in the next Episode by seeing someone who is walking with a partner Digimon! Who’s that girl and who’s that Digimon? This is a question that Hiro and Gammamon must solve in the next Episode!

DIGIMON INTRO CORNER

Alright, let us introduce a Digmon who appeared in this Episode today!

Mummymon! A Digimon who is a mummy resurrected from the dead and began scaring people!

Name: Mummymon (マミーモン)
Type: Virus
Level: Ultimate
Special Attack: Snake Bandage

Info taken from Digimon Wiki: https://digimon.fandom.com/wiki/Mummymon

He is also known to be called as the ‘Necromancer’ because he is summoning any corpse or souls of any dead Digimon, turning them into his minions! His Special Attack can wrap his opponents using it’s bandage that is armed around him, called the Snake Bandage!

Also, I like the big gun weapon that he is carrying. But then, this Digimon fires it’s gatling-like weapon and he won’t stop until he takes your soul! Definitely, he’s a Digimon that can be either good or evil, and be careful!
