Man, how many times are we going to have to say "this adult digimon is totally different from anything else and completely forgotten?" Is it even still worth saying after this many times? I've always liked unicorns when they're anything other than just a normal horse with a horn on it. Old-school unicorns were weirder than that, and Unimon is only BARELY a horse. A horse with a horrifying dog-mouth full of fangs, long ears, tattered wings and a bolted-on helmet with an eerie visor.

Digimon back in the day took great pains to avoid generic monster designs and equal pains to avoid traditional cuteness or prettiness, and I like cute, pretty things too, but I miss when even a unicorn was a battle-scarred monstrosity in this series.

Oh yeah, and I forgot there was a variation called Shimaunimon which just trades the wings for zebra stripes! Both of these Digimon really are just so, so frightening.
