Oh dang that is a GOOD one! I really wasn't expecting Anomalocarimon to get an X form, but then again, I wouldn't have expected the vast majority of these so far. The X-antibody plot really gave some unloved digimon a fresh chance, which makes it even more disappointing that most of these fell right back into obscurity.

Every part of Anomalocarimon is sleeker, sharper and more ferocious looking here, but without sacrificing any of the characteristics that made it cool to begin with. I will say I wish it had dropped the eyes on the sides, because while I do like them well enough, it'd still be an even more fun design with only the eye stalks on top, truer to the real animal.

Of course what pops out at you even more than the anatomy of this beast is the wild new palette with every single color of the rainbow, looking very much like it shifts in hue according to how the light hits it. It's a psychedelic Lisa Frank lobopod covered in murder weapons, and it is one of the single best things to ever come out of Digimon as a franchise.
