|“||Listen. While we lay buried within a deep darkness of utter coldness and sorrow, you were on the other side, enjoying yourselves and laughing happily in the warm light. WHY?! What have we done to deserve this?! Why must we weep tears of grief while you enjoy cheerful laughter?! We, too, have tears that flow from our eyes and feelings that flow from our hearts. Just who decided that we were to be deprived of this world and consigned to oblivion?! We wanted to live! We wanted to live and speak of friendship, justice, and love! We wanted to use this body to be helpful to this world! Are you saying that this world has no need for us? That we are meaningless? Then we shall rule the world! We shall make this place belong to us. All who get in our way will die! May the light be forever cursed where it shines!||„|
|“||Dark Area... Here is the graveyard for Digimon. There are few Digimon who disappear due to the way of evolution and disappears into darkness in regret. We wanted to live ... We wanted to be strong ... to believe in justice, to love ... We wanted to laugh with our friends ... In vain, in the dark world of darkness, the voices of grieving and mourning, which endlessly end, changed only to a single voice of grudge ...||„|
|~ The Grudge Apocalymon is made up of|
Apocalymon is a fictional character from the Digimon franchise, and is the final and true main antagonist in its first season, Digimon Adventure. He was created by deceased Digimon during a reconfiguration and he was able to breach through the fire wall.
At his core, Apocalymon is motivated by jealousy and despair. As a creature formed from Digimon doomed to death by natural evolution, he is confined to an empty world of darkness, only able to watch as the reverse world -the world of light- gets to rejoice in happiness as he suffers. Cursing it, he desires to rule over all the Digimon and the Digital World and twist the world to fit him and his darkness.
In the English dub, Apocalymon has a dark sense of humor despite him being "required" to be miserable; after explaining his plan to the DigiDestined he begins to laugh, but quickly stops himself, commenting that he's "supposed to be depressed". In the Japanese version, however, Apocalymon refers to himself in the plural sense, likely in reference to the Biblical Legion, who claimed to be possessed by a multitude of demons acting as a gestalt. Regardless of how the trait it showed, he's clearly meant to be almost completely insane.
