    The Digimon Emporer creates an all-powerful Digimon out of different body parts from different Digimon to destroy the digidestined but his plan backfires as Kimeramon answers to himself. With Kimeramon out of control, it's up to Veemon's new digivolution form, Magnamon to take him out!

    Wormmon and the Digimon Emporer begin to reveal their relation between eachother. As it seems Magnamon will be defeated by Kimeramon, Wormmon sacrifices himself to free Magnamon and gives the last of his power to Magnamon in hopes that it will help defeat Kimeramon and maybe free the former Ken then he grew up to love.

    In one final explosion, Magnamon takes Kimeramon out. Ken is upset that Wormmon is gone and wants to reset the Digital World but the digidestined get him to see the pain he's caused. Thus ends the Digimon Emporer saga.moreless
  • Magnamon vs. Kimeramon

    With the power of the Golden DigiEgg, Veemon was able to miraculously Armor Digivolve to Magnamon. Magnamon turned to face Kimeramon, but Kimeramon's darkness was deep enough to swallow even that miraculous light... After having used up all his power, Magnamon was driven into a corner. The one who saved him from that pinch was...Wormmon!! In order to save Ken from the powers of darkness, in order to return him to his true self,Wormmon gives his remaining power to Magnamon. With the additional power, Magnamon is able to destroy Kimeramon. Ken collpases in tears because he feels he's lost everything. Meanwhile, the DigiDestined find the Crest of Kindness in the sand, and they're surprised when it goes to Ken. Ken feels he doesn't deserve the crest of kindness, but then they find Wormmon barely alive. Ken runs over and asks Wormmon for forgiveness. Wormmon says he won't forgive Ken because Ken wasn't the evil Emperor, but that Ken will be able to find him where they first met each other at. Ken then realizes he is loved and goes home.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In the original, when reverting to his normal clothes, Ken screamed out of anger, and in the dub he is crying.

    • "Kari had never seen any crest other than the original eight. How in the world did she instantly know that this new crest was that of Kindness?" -In many of the sourcebooks, Kari is listed as having extrasensory abilities(hence the Season One episode where she channels the spirit that teaches them about how they became Digidestined). It probably just popped into her head, and she blurted it out. (In the Japanese version, the dialouge relating to the Crest of Kindness originally had Davis talking about hearing a voice coming from the crest, telling him that it wanted to return to its true owner)

    • In response to above: In several of the sourcebooks, as well as at least one or two of the episodes, Kari is said to have low-level ESP. It probably just kicked in and told her what the crest was.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • June: Hey, Matt! I made it!
      Matt: Oh no, she followed us! She's like a boomerang that keeps coming back!

    • Wormmon: Whatever happened to that sweet kid I met a long time ago, who had a dream to take over the Digital World? Okay, sure, so it was a sick and twisted dream, but still, we had a lot of laughs together...

    • Davis (about Kimeramon): He's no match for you, Magnamon. But just in cause he is, I'll get the others!

    • Halsemon: (After the Digimon Emperor's base falls to the ground) Oh, the humanity!

    • Wormmon (About Kimeramon): Master, let's leave! He'll destroy you!
      Digimon Emperor: But I'm his...creator. I nurtured him from the beginning with evil! These kids nowadays have no respect!

    • Davis: Golden Armour Energize!
      Veemon: Veemon, Golden Armour Digivolve to...Magnamon!
      Davis: Wow, that was intense. You're about the coolest thing I've ever seen! Look at those rad shoulder pads! I could use them as boogie boards!
      Magnamon (as his vital status appears): I am a Golden Armor Digimon, Magnamon. I attack with my Magna Blaster, and I look so good doing it, too!

    • Armadillomon: Armadillomon armor Digivolve to...
      Digmon: Digmon, The drill of Knowledge! (I used to say power, but this makes me sound smarter!)

    • Digimon Emperor: Hey, DigiFools! Do you honestly think your new Digimon can beat me? He couldn't even beat my flashlight!

    • Wormmon: Please Magnamon, save Ken for me, here's what little energy I have left...use it!
      Magnamon: Wormmon's power has re-energized me! (Magnamon begins to gather all his energy into his body, shouting out) Magna Explosion!!!
      (Kimeramon is obliterated in a flash of light)

    • Digimon Emperor(To Wormmon): Listen up you little night-crawler if had a friend it certainly wouldn't be you!

  • NOTES (11)


    • Halsemon says, "Oh, the humanity!" after the base falls to the ground. This is a reference to the infamous radio broadcast of the Hindenburg explosion.
