The best moment in the original Digimon The series remained unheard of until many years later. The ruler of the island where the group arrives in the Digital World, the evil and monstrous Devimon, appears in the early episodes of Digimon. Although Devimon’s powers are surpassed by both the heroes and later villains as the series progresses, this provides a formidable first opponent for the heroes and confrontations. ultimately delivering the most memorable moment of the series when a battle with Devimon unlocks Patamon’s first Digivolution, Angemon.
The heroes finally face off against Devimon in the climactic battle of the first part in episode #13 of Digimon Adventure. The final battle didn’t go well at first. Even the combined efforts of all the Digimon heroes working together in their Champion-level Digivolutions were nearly futile against the kaiju-sized Devimon, who eventually turned his attention to TK and Patamon . For a terrible moment, the heroes seemed helpless and defeated, then Patamon, the little orange guinea pig, finally Digivolves, unlocking his Champion-level form, the masked Angemon six-wing mask. Although still tiny compared to the sheer size of the massive Devimon, Angemon dodged Devimon’s attacks and retracted his fiery fist. With just one punch, Angemon completely vaporized Devimon.
Angemon defeats Digimon’s first main antagonist with just one punch
This is the long-awaited culmination of Patamon’s first character arc, revolving around Patamon’s feelings of helplessness as he becomes the last Digimon in Digivolve’s main cast. Although Angemon used so much of his own energy that he turned back into a Digi-Egg, he proved himself to be one of the strongest Champion-level Digimon, helping the group achieve a decisive victory over their enemies previously unstoppable and created an unforgettable moment that sounds like the best of the original series.
This is Digimon’s answer to Goku reaching Super Saiyan form for the first time. Yes, other characters will unlock similar abilities. Yes, new, more powerful forms – even Patamon’s later Digivolutions – will outpace Angemon. Still, this moment stands out. This was the first time both audiences and fans had witnessed such a twist, unlike anything in the series up to that point. Having reached their full potential, both Goku and Angemon bring justice to previously unstoppable villains in ways that are cathartic, well-deserved, and completely one-sided. Goku rejects everything Frieza can throw at him. Angemon defeats Devimon with a single punch, much like One-Punch Man’s Saitama.
Angemon’s first appearance set the precedent for Patamon’s later Digivolutions, appearing the least frequently but easily proving to be the strongest and arriving at the right time to save the world in a decisive and memorable manner. . Even though Angemon’s first appearance was only 13 episodes into the series, it’s still the best and most memorable Digivolution yet. The first time a powerful character like Angemon makes his impact is always the most memorable. Angemon’s first appearance and one-punch victory over Devimon is the climax of the original Digimon anime and one of the best moments in the series.
Original Digimon Adventure and the 2020 reboot are both available on Crunchyroll.
