Top 10 Strongest Partner Digimon

Jeremy enjoys anime when not working as a chemist or building manager.

Companion Digimon

Similar to its competitor Pokémon, some Digimon choose to ally with trainers—sorry, tamers. Bonding with humans has its advantages, like unlocking new digivolutions or letting creatures receive support (like the power cards in the Tamers anime).

Most tamer-bonded allies normally stay in rookie form, gradually unlocking champion, ultimate, and mega stages as their friendship increases—which reign supreme? These are the ten strongest partner Digimon!

Veemon

Veemon

10. Veemon

Series: Digimon Adventure 02
Tamer: Davis Motomiya

Veemon's a versatile companion throughout the second anime, gaining three different armor digivolutions plus his natural evolutionary chain. Veemon's one of if not the strongest creature in his show, and his ability to DNA digivolve into Paildramon (alongside Wormmon) proves essential to the team. His strongest form is the mega-level Imperialdramon Paladin Mode, unlocked after receiving Omnimon's energy.

Gaomon

Gaomon

9. Gaomon

Series: Digimon Data Squad
Tamer: Thomas H. Norstein

Compared to most hyperactive partners, Gaomon's a calm ally perfect for laid-back tamers. His strongest mega form is the speed-focused MirageGaogamon, who becomes even stronger when he unlocks burst mode.

Gatomon

Gatomon

8. Gatomon

Series: Digimon Adventures
Tamer: Kari Kamiya

Gatomon has the unique distinction of preferring her champion-level form instead of rookie, accessing ultimate and mega forms quicker than most partners. Even better, in addition to her armor evolutions, she can digivolve into the holy warriors Angewoman and Ophanimon—angels consistently portrayed as particularly strong for their ranks.

Dorumon

Dorumon

7. Dorumon

Series: Digimon D-Cyber (manga)
Tamer: Zhìguāng Lóng

A combat-oriented prototype Digimon, Dorumon is ferocious and hard to control but relentless in battle. Though his initial forms are more bestial, Dorumon's final transformations render him as a holy knight with a devastating blade. He unlocks his strongest form, Alphamon Ouryuken, after training under a royal knight, showing effort counts as much as friendship.

Guilmon

Guilmon

6. Guilmon

Series: Digimon Tamers
Tamer: Takato Matsuki

If judged only on their rookie form, Guilomon would probably be today's strongest companion, as he's taken on several champions in his base mode. As a recently-created ally, he's normally naïve and playful, but unlocks devastating powers when angered.

Like Agumon, his rage can take him down alternate transformation paths, leading to the mega-level Megidramon, but his true power stems from Gallantmon Crimson Mode, arguably the strongest Digimon in all of Tamers.

Lopmon

Lopmon

5. Lopmon

Series: Digimon Adventure 02
Tamer: Willis

A darker-tinted Terriormon, Lopmon's cute appearance belies fierce power, best shown after dark digivolving into Kerpymon (sometimes called evil Cherubimon). This berserker form takes the combined powers of several of the cast's ultimates and megas to defeat.

Patamon

Patamon

4. Patamon

Series: Digimon Adventures
Tamer: Takeru "T.K." Takaishi

Patamon is basically the Magikarp of his series, weak at first and slow to evolve, but when he does, his digivolutions contend with foes of much higher ranks. Angemon is easily the strongest champion-level fighter on his team, and his angelic powers increase further with MagnaAngemon and Seraphimon.

Morphomon

Morphomon

3. Morphomon

Series: Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna (film)
Tamer: Menoa Bellucci

Morphomon's the most nefarious of today's creatures, seeking to trap all DigiDestined inside memories of their companions to keep them from separating. His ends don't justify his means, but Morphomon very nearly succeeds in his plan after his mega form defeats even the mighty Omnimon, only to be beaten by…

Gabumon

Gabumon

2. Gabumon

Series: Digimon Adventures
Tamer: Yamato "Matt" Ishida

Unlike his tamer, Gabumon's shy and humble, but consistently proves one of his team's best warriors. Alongside Agumon, he's the first to warp digivolve into MetalGarurumon, later combining with Wargreymon into Omnimon.

But most recently, he's unlocked a new mega form called Gabumon (Bond of Friendship), strong enough to vanquish even mega Morphomon.

Agumon

Agumon

1. Agumon

Series: Digimon Adventures
Tamer: Taichi "Tai" Kamiya

Arguably the most famous Digimon of all time, Agumon partnered with Tai in the very first series, later assisting Marcus in Data Squad with some new transformations. From SkullGreymon to WarGreymon to Omnimon, Agumon consistently wields some of the strongest digivolutions, especially his latest Agumon (Bond of Bravery) mega form.
