The Digimon for March 18th, 2013 is Leviamon!
Called the “Devil Beast” out of terror of the exceedingly mighty power that this monster possesses, it is counted as one of the “Seven Great Demon Lords” and is the strongest monster existing in the Digital World. This extensive monster, said to possess gigantic jaws which could guzzle even the Digital World, is reported to sleep in the depths of the Net Ocean nearest to the Dark Area, and if it is awakened, it will despise any Digimon at the top, and will flee even Angel Digimon, much less other Demon Lord Digimon. However, as the existence of the limits on Digimon are decoded, its own appears similar to nothingness, and it is said that it builds the foundation for the existence of wickedness in the Digital World. Its Special Moves are destroying everything with its gigantic jaws (Rostrum), and mowing everything down with its long tails (Cauda).

Did you know that…?
- Leviamon is an Ultimate-level digimon, which is known as a “Mega” in the US. His Attribute is Virus, and he is classified as a Demon Lord Digimon. He belongs to the Dark Area, Deep Savers, and Nightmare Soldiers families.
- Leviamon’s name is derived from “Leviathan”, a gigantic demon beast associated with the sea in the Bible. His opposite is the Behemoth, which represents land. Some interpretations of the Leviathan depict it as a crocodile, hence why Leviamon is visually based on one as well.
- In Paradise Lost, Leviathan was one of Lucifer’s right-hand demons, and one of the strongest in existence.
- Leviamon belongs to the group known as the “Seven Great Demon Lords.” Each member of this group represents one of the Seven Deadly Sins. In Leviamon’s case, he represents Envy. The same is true of Leviathan in classical Demonology.
- Leviamon’s attacks translate to “Snout” (“Rostrum”), and “Tail” (“Cuada”) in Latin. He has two other attacks as well: “Duo Cuada” (“Double Tail”) and “Anima” (“Breath”) respectively.
