SkullGreymon is a Skeleton Digimon whose name and design are derived from "SkullGreymon". It was a Digimon that put too much importance on fighting, and as a result of its combat instinct it clung to life despite its body rotting away, its whole body becoming nothing but bones. As it doesn't have even a scrap of intelligence to balance its combat instinct, its existence is a threat to other Digimon.
SkullGreymon is an alternate Ultimate form of Greymon. When treating Greymon wrongly, Greymon will Digivolve into SkullGreymon. SkullGreymon is the result of Tai's reckless actions in trying to make Agumon digivolve to Ultimate. By overfeeding him and then deliberately putting himself into danger, he gets Greymon to digivolve but through Dark Digivolution into this horrible form. He annihilates the Greymon attacking them but doesn't differentiate between friend and foe. He only stops when he runs out of energy and reverts to Koromon. This action breaks the confidence of both Tai and Agumon, which only recovers through Piximon's special training. At the end of the series, Gennai reveals that SkullGreymon isn't a wrong digivolution for Agumon, just that it isn't a Digimon suited for their purposes, in order to quell the conversation about Virus Digimon.
Unfortunately, SkullGreymon makes another appearance in the sequel. When the Digimon Emperor takes control of Greymon with a Dark Ring, he tries to force him to digivolve into MetalGreymon. The result is the Dark Digivolution into the rampaging SkullGreymon. Further experiments with the same result leads to the Digimon Emperor creating the improved Dark Spiral. In Digimon Adventure: Character Song + Mini Drama 3, Agumon dark digivolves to SkullGreymon after being criticized for his poor impersonations.
