Barbamon is a Demon Lord Digimon whose name and design are derived from the mythological Barbatos. With the appearance of a long-bearded old man, it is one of the Seven Great Demon Lords, representing Saturn and the sin of Greed. It resides within the heart of the Dark Area, the den of demons, and manipulates Fallen Angel Digimon to run the whole gamut of evil. It is obsessed with all of the treasure which exists within the Network, so out of avarice, and regardless of the means, it has a cruel personality with a greed that would kill Digimon just for a piece of treasure. It is the foremost and most cunning schemer of the Seven Great Demon Lords, and can easily manipulate the Mega-level Ghoulmon in addition to Fallen Angel Digimon.

Attack Potency: At least Universe level+ (Commands all the energies of the Dark Area, a dimension as large if not larger than the Digital World. Should be around as strong as Beelzemon who traded blows with Megidramon. His attack "Pandæmonium Lost" is stated to be countless times stronger than MaloMyotismon's attack "Screaming Darkness" which overpowered Imperialdramon Fighter Mode. In Digimon World: Re:Digitze he managed defeat Beelzemon and Lilithmon as well as imprison and torture Lucemon to death, but fled from Lucemon Chaos Mode. Comparable to the Royal Knights, such as Dukemon, who is equal to Chaos Dukemon, who is the death of universes) | At least Universe level+, likely higher (Became one with Yggdrasils host computer, thus adding its power to his own) | At least Multiverse level+, likely High Multiverse+ (Fought end game Takumi and Rina at once, apparently stole UlforceVeedramon's powers) | At least High Multiverse level+ (The Seven Great Demon Lords are a multiversal constant, with their existence being tied to the Digital World itself.

Equal to Lilithmon) | Immeasurable (On the same level of Yggdrasil, who was capable of perceiving and fighting within Higher Dimensional space) | Immeasurable (Comparable to UlforceVeedramon) | Nigh-Omnipresent within the Digital World Multiverse (All seven Demon Lords managed to spread their presence across the spectrum of space and time on a multiversal scale and are tied to the Digital World itself), otherwise Immeasurable (Embodies the sin of Greed, which transcends space and time)

Range: Universal with the powers of the Dark Area | Universal or higher | Multiversal+ in his true form (Affected the entirety of the Digital World Multiverse)
Standard Equipment: His staff "Death Lure" | Yggdrasil itself, allowing him to control the fabric of the Digital World
Intelligence: Barbamon is arguably the most crafty amongst the Demon Lords, commanding and manipulating entire hordes of Fallen Angel Digimon along with Ghoulmon, who is described as a "god of destruction" and even tricking his fellow Demon Lords into doing his bidding, stealing of Lilithmon and tricking a berserk Lucemon into killing Beelzemon in Digimon World: Re:Digitze. In addition, in Digimon Next he hatched a plot to take over Yggdrasil and succeeded, fusing with the computer and effectively making himself the commander of the Digital World's space-time, only failing to account for the long-forgotten legend of the Arbitrators who would strike Yggdrasil (and Barbamon) down should it become corrupt.
Weaknesses: As the embodiment of avarice, Barbamon is greedy to a fault, which can be used to manipulate or distract him.
- Overwrite: All Digimon can rewrite their data, so that they are able to react to various situations that were once problematic for it. This usually causes a gigantic increase in power, durability, speed and sometimes new skills and resistances to be gained. However, the more emotional the Digimon is, the more violent the overwrite becomes and thus can lead to negative effects.
- Death Lure: Uses its demonic staff "Death Lure" to tempt Digimon into an inescapable living hell, converting them to wickedness.
- Pandæmonium Lost: Unleashes all of the Dark Area's evil energies at once as an extremely high-temperature explosion that burns up everything without a trace. Even MaloMyotismon's "Screaming Darkness" releases only a fraction of these energies.
- Dark Inferno: (Jigoku no Kaen, lit. "Hell Fire") Barbamon burns his foes dark hellfire.
- Greedy Wand: Barbamon attacks with its favorite wand.
