|“||That is an unfathomable error! Your logic is utter nonsense! Humans! They are filth, polluting the world of Digimon as they scatter their foul data about them! And the woman who became my flesh... the throngs of people she manipulated! It was all offensive, foul, utter foolishness! Humans exist to be purged! The universe demands it!||„|
|~ LordKnightmon in response to Alphamon's defense of humanity|
Crusadermon is a Holy Knight Digimon who is the monarch which presides over all Knightmon and is one of the "Royal Knights". More than morality, Lord Knightmon is faithful to what it personally regards as "Justice", and that end justifies their means. If it will bring about lasting peace, Lord Knightmon will find merit there, even with "Rule by Power". In its entirety, it has unparalleled ruthlessness in the execution of its duties, and it shows no compassion for the weak.
He appears in both Digimon Frontier and Digimon Savers/Data Squad as an antagonist, helping Lucemon and Yggdrasil in their goals respectively.

Stamina: Extremely high
Range: Extended melee range normally, several meters with Spiral Masquerade
Standard Equipment: His handheld shield and Pile Bunker and the Ribbons on its back.
Intelligence: LordKnightmon immensely skilled combatant with countless years of combat experience as a member of the Royal Knights, LordKnightmon is notable for leading every Knightmon. In his first appearances in Digimon Frontier, he was able to easily overpower both EmperorGreymon and MagnaGarurumon with the help of Dynasmon, deftly and gracefully deflecting their attacks before punishing them with powerful counter attacks. However, he is insufferably arrogant and confident in himself, and he rules through fear rather than compassion, having no respect for the weak and being a firm believer of the "might makes right" ideology.
Weaknesses: Incredibly arrogant and tends to underestimate his opponents, flamboyant and overly showy
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 and sometimes new skills and resistances are gained. However, the more emotional the Digimon is, the more violent the overwrite becomes.
- Urgent Fear/Fist of Athena: Teleports right next to the opponent before blasting them with energy at point blank range with its pile bunker.
- Spiral Masquerade: Four ribbon-like blades extend from LordKnightmon's armor, which he uses to slice everything around him to pieces.
- Energy Lattice: LordKnightmon entangles his opponent in a net made of energy to restrict their movements.
- Scarlet Tempest: LordKnightmon uses his pile bunker to generate a whirlwind that buffets his target and surrounds them to prevent movement.
- Berserk Sword: Charges energy into her Berserk Sword and strikes the opponent, instantly killing them in one blow if it hits.
- Power Null: A thought that nullifies the opponents' special abilities.
