Leomon is a minor hero in Digimon Adventure. He can also Digivolve to SaberLeomon (despite skipping to the Ultimate Level). His known attack is Fist Of The Beast King. He is Ogremon's rival.
He is voiced by Hiroaki Hirata in the Japanese version, and by Paul St. Peter in the English version and returned to reprise his role in Digimon Adventure tri..
He resembles a humanoid lion warrior that weilds a mighty sword.
Leomon went face-to-face with his rival, Ogremon, he was infected by Devimon's Touch of Evil, turning him evil. Luckily Tai and Matt raised their Digivices and released the Black Gears from Leomon's body, returning him to normal.
Later, he returned as SaberLeomon to rescue Mimi and Joe from MetalEtemon. He challenged MetalEtemon to a battle as SaberLeomon, but was fatally wounded by MetalEtemon's attack. Using the last ounce of his strength, SaberLeomon pierced through MetalEtemon's damaged armor (which was punctured by Zudomon's Vulcan Hammer attack). In his dying breath, Leomon said that he will be reborn in Primary Village and hopes to greet Ogremon once more now as allies instead of enemies.
