Character History


In his original debut, Pigmon was one of the many monsters who lived on Tatara Island (along with Red King, Chandrah, Magular, and Suflan). Unlike the rest of the populace though, Pigmon was much more friendly in nature. When a group of Observers were sent to an Observatory on Tatara Island to further re-open the island after it had been closed for several years. All but one of them were killed by the Monsters within 2 weeks, while the one survivor (named Mr. Matsui) was badly injured. Upon finding the injured Observer though, Pigmon chose to instead nurse Mr. Matsui back to full health until help for him could arrive. One help came in the form of the Science Patrol, the team learned of Pigmon's selfless actions and were about to congratulate the Monster when they were all ambushed by Red King! Arashi and Ide tried their best of fend off the bigger and meaner Monster with their weapons, but Red King's brutish nature and tough hide made their efforts futile. During the scuffle, Pigmon tried to help by distracting Red King, but the heroic Monster's efforts came at a grave price, as Red King sadistically attacked Pigmon by hurling some boulders at him, causing a landslide than struck and tragically killed the tiny monster.


In episode 37, (entitled "The Littlest Hero,") Pigmon was one of the 3 Monsters revived by Geronimon (along with Telesdon and Dorako) as a demonstration of the Monster's ability to revive the dead. Unknown to the Monster Chief though, Pigmon was a friend of humanity, and after being spotted at a Mall and picked up by the Science Patrol, Pigmon attempted to warn them about Geronimon, but his message couldn't go through as the Team couldn't understand his language. After Ide and Dr. Gonda created a translator to understand what the Monster was saying, Pigmon told the team of Geronimon's plan to revive 60 Monsters all over the World to wreck havoc, and the team headed out to Ohiwayama to find the Monster Chief and stop him before his plan could go underway. As Hayata and Ide battled against Re-Dorako, the duo was cornered due to Ide's self-doubt hindering his ability to fight back, but just as it seemed Ide was doomed, Pigmon appeared (having tagged along with the team) and he distracted Re-Dorako by shouting loudly at the monster. Annoyed by Pigmon's shouting, Re-Dorako sadistically crushed Pigmon beneath his hand and Pigmon was killed once more. Pigmon's distraction was not in vain though, as Ide then pulled himself together and killed Re-Dorako with his newest weapon: the Spark Bomb.
