|“|| Yes! I was definitely waiting for someone! Ever since I was Nyaromon, I was so lonely. Every day I just kept waiting, and waiting. The seasons changed, and the years rolled by, and still I kept waiting—but no one ever came. Then when I became Salamon, I started searching! I went on a journey. But what I finally found was not the someone I had been waiting for! Instead I found evil...And darkness. Myotismon...
Then those days of torture and despair began, and I started to forget! Forget that I waiting for someone, searching for someone.
Gatomon is one of the main heroes in Digimon Seasons 1, 2 Digimon Adventure tri. and Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna. Gatomon used to work for the sinister Myotismon (which she didn't like), but she turned out to be a hero when she met Kari. Gatomon can Digivolve into the beautiful Angewomon, Armor Digivolve into Nefertimon and DNA Digivolve with Aquilamon into Silphymon. Her fresh form is YukimiBotamon, her in-training form is Nyaromon and her rookie form is Salamon.
Her true Mega form is Magnadramon and alternate Mega forms are Ophanimon (Digimon Adventure: PSP) and Ophanimon Falldown Mode, which are shown in Chapter 5 of Digimon Adventure tri. and can DNA digivolve to Ordinemon with Raguelmon.
In the English version, she was voiced by Edie Mirman in the Digimon Adventure series and replace to Kate Higgins in Digimon Adventure tri. along with Meicoomon.
In the Japanese version, she is voiced by Yuka Tokumitsu and returned to reprise her role for Digimon Adventure tri. & Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.
She resembles a cute white cat with green paw-like gloves.
It is revealed that Gatomon was created, along with the rest of the DigiDestined's Digimon, as part of a project to help control the balance between good and evil in the Digital World. When she is a Digi-Egg connected to Crest of Light, the Dark Masters attack the facility where she is housed, and Gennai flees with the eggs in hand. During the escape, Gatomon's Digi-Egg fell and became separated from the rest of the Digimon. She later hatched into Nyaromon, and constantly waited for Kari she was programmed to bond with. When she later digivolved into Salamon, she searched for that person instead of passively waiting, but found Myotismon. He took her under his wing, but during that time he routinely abused her, causing her to forget what she had been doing. Salamon eventually naturally digivolve to Gatomon and became one of Myotismon's lieutenants in his army of Digimon. During this time, she gained a rival in one of his other minions, DemiDevilmon, as the two competed for their master's favor. Her only friend was Wizardmon, a friendly Digimon who Gatomon had once helped.
- "You don't really understand what would happen if we turned back time in the digial world, do you?"
- "It isn't only the digital world that would get rebooted, we would as well."
- "It means... that we would lose all of our memories."
- "Losing our memories would be truly scary. But really, the scariest thing is that we wouldn't even know it happened 'cause we wouldn't be able to remember that we forgot."
- "Listen, no more feeling sorry for ourselves. We wanna protect our partners and their world, right? Then, this is how it's gonna be. We just have to prepare for the worst. Great. Now I'm feeling sorry for myself again."
- Unlike other Digimon, she spends time in her Champion form.
