The central threat of Digimon Story: Super Xros Wars, Armamon is one of the "Legend Arms" digimon who can transform into weapons, like the Spadamon we reviewed a ways back, but it seems to be beyond even your typical Ultimate Level digimon in pure power.

It's a fairly neat design, really looking like the kind of monster that could also turn into an ancient, mystical sword. I like the floaty leglessness which is always a plus. The villain of this game is Barbamon, the demon lord of greed, who seeks to awaken Armamon and wield its sword form himself.


In a surprise twist, Armamon proves so powerful that it's able to transform Barbamon into a sword that it wields, and then in a second twist, Barbamon's mind regains enough control to take over and absorb Armamon, becoming "Omega Armamon Burst Mode." There's no clearer artwork of this, but I guess it nicely mixes Barbamon's extravagant outfit with Armamon's armor.
