Archnemon is a Dark Animal Digimon whose name and design are derived from the mythological "Queen of Spiders", Arachne. As the queen who presides over all Dokugumon, it is an extremely cunning Digimon with great intelligence. It is skilled at transforming into a human-like appearance, getting the opponent to let down their guard so that it can approach and completely devour them. Also, because of its extremely short temper and ferocious personality, many Digimon are afraid of it.
She serves as a tertiary antagonist in Digimon Adventure 02, working for MaloMyotismon, but is later devoured by him in the finale.

Intelligence: Manipulative and cunning, pesters the DigiDestined on an innumerable number of occasions, wreaking havoc across the Digital World in order to distract them from the larger plan developed by Myotismon. She is capable enough in combat to hold off the DigiDestined's Armor-level Digimon on numerous occasions, only losing to some upset or some issue with her vanity. However, she is blindly loyal to Myotismon and didn't see how he was using her for his own ends until the point where he decided to devour her.
Weaknesses: Somewhat vain and arrogant
- Acid Mist: Archnemon breathes out acidic green mist to dissolve her opponent's bodies.
- Predation Spider: Produces countless Dokugumon, a Champion-level Digimon, from its abdomen to assist her in combat.
- Spider Thread: Secretes razor-sharp spider threads to entangle and chop up opponents to be pounced upon later.
- Spirit Needle: Inserts her hair into one of the Control Spires she built with Ken during the latter's time as the Digimon Emperor, turning it into a rampaging artificial Digimon under her command. The power of the Digimon created is proportional to the number of hairs used; one for a Champion, ten for an Ultimate, and one hundred for a Mega.
