It's a shame this one is limited to only a single short chapter of the Xros Wars manga, because I really like cake and dessert themes monsters, and it's a fun theme for another of those ultra-powerful lady digimon. Weddinmon is in fact the supreme ruler of an entire dessert-themed zone of the digital world, but she turns out to be working for Lilithmon!

The design evokes the old cliche of a girl emerging from a cake, but I'm not sure if that's intentional or not, because I've almost never seen that referenced before in Japanese media and I'm not 100% sure it's a concept they're really aware of over there. The cake itself subsequently serving as her dress is a fun design gimmick, and the gold trophy on top of her head is particularly funny.


Weddinmon also has her own special minions, the SHORTMON! I guess it's a reference to "shortcake!" We can probably assume Shortmon would eventually evolve into Weddinmon if they were part of a traditional line, but there's no telling what stage that would make either of them. I like how a slice of cake serves as a pointed canine head here, with a strawberry as a goofy hairdo and more strawberries as "ears!" Together with its little suit, Shortmon is a pretty stylish and memorable design I wish we'd ever seen in color.

And that's not all...


Weddinmon, her Shortmon, and her additional Candlemon minions can all fuse together into REVERSE WEDDINMON, a maniacal pastry monster with deranged eyes, big lips, and Candlemon flame heads in her "hands!" The "reverse" aspect of the name implies this is Weddinmon flipped upside down, though you can still see her original cake dress at the bottom of the creature, so it seems to actually just be a transformation of her humanoid body.

Seriously just plain fun, with the kind of aesthetic I missed from classics like Sukamon and Numemon!
