|“||Now here's what transpired when Etemon expired. Listen up, baby! I'm sure you all remember the battle I had with MetalGreymon. I tell you, he's one tough dinosaur, honey. After that, I was swallowed up by a black hole. I think I gave it indigestion. My digital information was scattered throughout the universe. I pulled myself back together and chilled out for awhile in Digimon Limbo. My information was chopped, mixed, whipped and puréed. I felt like a full speed blender, honey. But I refused to return to the Digital World until I was bigger, better and had a full head of beautiful metal hair. Now I'm back to get my revenge on you, DigiDestined!||„|
Etemon is a Puppet Digimon whose name and design are derived from a personified monkey. It is an unidentified Digimon that suddenly appeared in the Digital World. It calls itself the "King of Digimon", and its fighting strength is beyond imagination. And, well, it's rumored that it pulls the strings of the mysterious Digimon "Monzaemon". It is dressed in its reinforced "Monkey Suit" which can endure every attack, and even today it bustles about the whole world for the sake of its unending battles.
Etemon is the second of the major villains that the DigiDestined encounter in Digimon Adventure 01, and the first they come into conflict with when they arrive on the continent of Server, and also a minor villain in Digimon Fusion. He is an evil Digimon who is like an Elvis wannabe in an orange Super Monkey Suit, complete with sunglasses. Unlike the first major villain, Devimon, Etemon is an Ultimate Digimon, and also comical and more of a crime lord than a dark lord, which would be the next Ultimate Digimon, Myotismon.
Etemon is one of the first creations of Apocalymon, along with his predecessor, Devimon, and successor, Myotismon. The most technological among the three, Etemon can pinpoint any location at will via his Dark Network, and has a very large army of Digimon working for him throughout all of the desert regions of the Server Continent, which is hardwired to his base via his Dark Network.
The Champion forms of the children’s Digimon are not strong enough to defeat him, and it is revealed that they need to Digivolve to their Ultimate levels to stand a chance against him. However, in order to do that, they have to find the crests. Through their battles with him, they each find of their crests, but it turns out that more is needed to Digivolve to Ultimate.
Etemon has the character of an Elvis Presley impersonator. He is often frustrated when people fail to acknowledge his over-inflated ego. Etemon considers himself to be a great singer and often has his minions to praise his terrible music, even though most of his mooks, mostly Gazimon, do enjoy his music genuinely.
Etemon is ultimately defeated when the children go into an upside-down pyramid to find Sora's crest. However, they also find Datamon, a prisoner of Etemon, who kidnaps Sora and tries to use her to defeat Etemon. The children come up with a plan to infiltrate the pyramid to save her, and while carrying it out, Tai is forced to accept his courage, activating his crest. Datamon, in a last ditch effort, programs the Dark Network to absorb all Digimon in its reach, including himself and Etemon, but Etemon fuses with the Dark Network and uses its power to attack the children.However, Greymon digivolves to MetalGreymon and uses his "Giga Blaster" to defeat Etemon. When Millenniummon resurrects the evil Digimon, Ryo Akiyama fights Etemon on his palace. Later, Ryo must fight Etemon and two Gazimon to save Tai and Agumon.
