Darkness shall prevail. The light shall be extinguished.
~ Duskmon

Duskmon is one of the antagonists in Digimon Frontier, but a minor villain in the manga version of Digimon Xros Wars.


Duskmon is a Human Hybrid Digimon that resembles a demonic black knight whose armor consists of skulls for his head, hands, and feet. He has eyes on his shoulders, chest, and his feet. His real red eyes can be seen in the mouth of his skull helmet. He also wields two red retractable blades as swords.

Digimon Frontier

Duskmon first appeared as a sillouette. Then after the battle against Petaldramon and reverted back to Arbormon, Duskmon appeared and cold-heartedly killed Arbormon and scanned his data. The Digidestined tried to fight back, but they were no match for Duskmon. Just when he was about to kill Agunimon, KendoGarurumon jumped in the way and took the attack When Takuya screamed out Koji's name, it caused Duskmon great pain.

Later on, while Takuya and Koji were still inside Sakakkumon's world, Duskmon found Koji again, but despite being Lobomon and KendoGarurumon to fight him, Duskmon easily defeated him again. Just as Duskmon was about to kill Koji, Koji then became Beowulfmon, thanks to the power of Seraphimon's data. Just then, Beowulfmon and Duskmon were sent out of Sakakkumon's world, and Duskmon ran off with Beowulfmon following him behind his tail. He eventually has a Beast Spirit form called Velgemon.

Later on, he was looking for Koji, and it revealed that Duskmon was Kouchi, Koji's brother. With the help of Aldamon, Beowulfmon defeated Duskmon and Kouchi returned to normal.

Digimon Xros Wars (Manga)

Duskmon was a minion of the Twilight Army, and possibly the right-hand of DarkKnightmon. He was absorbed by DarkKnightmon, and became, DarkKnightmon Darkness Mode (Duskmon).

What is our connection? Why do I feel like I know you?
~ Duskmon, to Koji
My search will be sort-lived. As will they.
~ Duskmon
I see what you're doing. Having Ranamon and Arbormon do all the work while you wait for the right moment to strike.
~ Duskmon, to Mercurymon
Sad but true, Koji, but we're brothers.
~ Duskmon, to Koji
Darkness hides from the light until it is ready to destroy it.
~ Duskmon
This Koji disturbs my concentration.
~ Duskmon
Each of your attacks seem to get weaker, not stronger. You must know there's no way you can win.
