Web War: The Coming of Sakuyamon!
*Inside the castle of The Digital World, the Supreme Ruler sat at his chair, contemplating to himself in front of his computer*
Supreme Ruler: This is inconceivable... No matter what ideas I come up with, those damn cretins always manage to foil them... The problem is that they find the weak point in my plans... This time, I will not fall down the same route...
*Just then, a loud sound was heard from the computer. The Supreme Ruler turned to his monitor to see a large crack running down the middle of the Digi Egg*
Supreme Ruler: *raises an eyebrow* Yes... At last, the time has come! Now, I must send this out to them... But who should be the approproate target?
*Meanwhile, in New York City, Chris was in his room at home, working on an essay at his computer With Angelomon perched on his head. Robert was there, sitting on the bed, looking at his digivice and his new crest*
Chris: Hey Rob, have you ever noticed the similarities between Lincoln and Kennedy?
Robert: *turns his attention towards Chris* Hmm? What was that?
Angelomon: What are you doing?
Robert: Just trying to figure out how this crest works. Mr. Morrissey said that you insert it into the back... *tries to plug in the crest* But it's like something's blocking it from going in.
Chris: Do you see anything back there?
Robert: *looks into the slot and blows into it* Hmm... Looks empty to me. *looks at the crest* Do you think it's not going in on purpose...like it's not ready yet or something?
Chris: Who knows? It's possible.
Robert: Anyway, how's the essay coming along?
Chris: So far, it's going well. I'm going over the connections between Lincoln and Kennedy
Angelomon: Like what?
Chris: Well, both were assassinated during their presidency, both were trying to-- *raises an eyebrow* Hang on, something's going on with the computer.
*Just then, a small window opened up on Chris' computer screen. Inside the window was the Supreme Ruler's cracked Digi Egg*
Chris: What the--? What's that?
Angelomon: *hops off of Chris' head* It's a Digi Egg!
Chris: But how did it get in my computer?
Robert: *puts the crest back in his pants pocket* Let me see. *walks over to the computer* Hmm... Kinda cute, actually.
Chris: Yeah, but what's it doing in my computer?
Robert: *shrugs his shoulders* I don't know.
*Suddenly, the egg in the window fell apart and out came a small Digimon that resembled a jellyfish with no tentacles and with one yellow eye in the center*
Kuramon: *from inside the computer* Hello!
Angelomon: Well, at least it's friendly.
*Kuramon then began to slowly pace back and forth inside the window, occasionally blinking its one eye*
Robert: Think it could be dangerous?
Chris: It looks innocent enough, but looks can be deceiving...
Robert: Try deleting it. I don't trust that eye.
Chris: Okay... *clicks on Kuramon and presses delete*
Kuramon: *from inside the computer* Ha ha ha! That tickles!
Chris: So much for that.
Angelomon: What about those three keys you use? Ctrl, alt, delete?
Chris: Okay, I'll try that. *presses ctrl, alt, delete*
*Chris then looked over in the 'Processes' section of the Task Manager and found a file in all capitalization called "UNKNOWN". He then looked in the "Memory" panel and saw that the file was "2,760,990 K"*
Chris: HOLY CRAP!!! He's taking up too much space on my computer. I've got to get rid of the little bastard!
Robert: How? We can't even delete it.
Chris: I have a virus scanner on my computer. Maybe THAT will get rid of him.
*Suddenly, Kuramon grew a pair of antennae and gained a clawed hand at the bottom of its body. It had now become Tsumemon*
Robert: Well, you better do it quick, it just digivolved.
Angelomon: *scrunches up his face in disgust* Ugh!! It's ugly!!
Chris: Okay, give me a minute.
*As the software scanned for viruses, the amount of viruses shown slowly grows, then later exceeds, going up to over a thousand discovered viruses*
Chris: *groans* It's just getting worse and worse...
Robert: Maybe we should call the others, see if they can help.
Chris: That would probably be the best idea.
*Chris and Robert took out their cell phones and began daialing up the rest of the Heroes for help*
*A few minutes later, there was a knock outside Chris' bedroom door. Chris got up and opened it to see Mike, Kevin and their Digimon standing in the hallway*
Kevin: So, where's the fire?
Chris: *points at his computer screen* In there!
Mike: *raises an ayebrow* Okay, I see a blank screen. If this is a screamer video, then I'm leaving...
Chris: What?! *goes back to the computer to see that it was empty* It's gone!!
Veemon: What's gone?
Chris: There was a Digimon on my computer. It was exceeding the amount of hard drive and memory space and it even had a large amount of viruses on it.
BlackAgumon: So where did it go?
Robert: Not sure. Wait! What's the result on the virus scanner?
Chris: Let me se-- *eyes widen* OH GOD!!!
Kevin: What? What is it?
*Everyone looked at the monitor to see that the scanner had found 6,492,989 viruses*
Angelomon: Okay, that ain't right.
Chris: I'll see if there's a solution. *tries to click on the "Delete Items" button, but it doesn't seem to do anything* Oh, no... No, no, no! Don't tell me it froze!!
Robert: So now what do we do?
Kevin: You know, I heard that some computer viruses have been known to hide in certain websites. Why don't we trace him to see which one he's on?
Robert: That's actually not a bad idea idea, Kev. But how CAN we trace him?
Chris: Hey, I'm a hacker, remember? I do this sort of thing in my sleep! *goes to his computer and scans for IP addresses, trying to find one that seems out of the ordinary*
Angelomon: Hey, what's that?
*Chris then stopped and saw a strange IP address, compressed of various symbols instead of numbers and letters*
Chris: This could be it. It's not like the other IP addresses.
Kevin: Let's see... Who do we know that would send you a Digimon that gives you over a million viruses?
Chris: I think the answer is pretty obvious...
*Washington D.C, The Pentagon. Agent Anderson and the other agents were experiencing Tsumemon on their computers and were having major problems as well*
Agent Anderson: WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!
Agent Simmons: Anderson... I'm afraid it's a Digimon. It's eating all sorts of computer data at an alarming rate and is currently in the network in New York City.
Agent Anderson: Digimon? I don't want to hear Digimon, I WANT TO HEAR EXTERMINATION!!!! Get those idiot kids on the phone, NOW!!!
Agent Brock: *raises an eyebrow* Them? But sir, they made a fool out of you. Why ask for their help?
Agent Anderson: They have more knowledge about these creatures than we do! GET THEM ON THE HORN, NOW!!!
Agent Brock: Yes, sir. *picks up the phone* What do we tell the president?
Agent Anderson: Unless this thing spreads out to the country and over, just say it's a bug.
Agent Brock: *nods* Yes, sir. *dials the white house*
Agent Anderson: *slumps into his chair, rubbing his temples* Damn those kids... All the resources of the U.S. government in our hands and we're still useless!
*Back in New York, Chris was still typing away at his computer, trying to look for Tsumemon before matters got any worse*
Robert: Any sign of the little bugger yet?
Chris: Nothing... But I'm sure I'll find him soon.
Mike: Where on the web can he be?
Angelomon: It can't be that hard to find him, can it?
*Just then, the phone rang*
Angelomon: I got it. *answers phone* Hello?
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* WHAT IS GOING ON OVER THERE?!!?!
Angelomon: OWIES!!! DONT SHOUT, YOU OLD GROUCH!!!!
Robert: Who is that?
Angelomon: Some old guy... Sounds like the mean man who kidnapped you.
Chris: I'll talk to him. *takes the phone* Hello, Mr. Anderson.
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* Christie, you have a lot of explaining to do. Why is there a Digimon on the internet in YOUR area?
Chris: I have no idea how it happened, but it seems to be very lethal. It has over a million viruses in it, and there's nothing I can do.
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* Damn it!!
Chris: I have managed to track it's IP address, but I don't know what to do with it.
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* Well do something! I WANT THAT THING OFF THE INTERNET BEFORE IT SPREADS!!!!
Chris: I CAN'T DO MUCH OF ANYTHING, I'M NOT A MIRACLE WORKER!!!
Robert: Chris, he's back...and he's had a growth spurt!
Chris: *pause* Anderson, I'll call you back.
Anderson: WAIT! I NEED ANSWE--
Chris: *hangs up* Let me see.
*The Heroes and their Digimon looked at the monitor to see that a large Digimon resembling mix between a jellyfish and Kermit the Frog with long arms and hands had appeared on Chris' scanners. This was Keramon, Tsumemon's Rookie form*
Keramon: *from inside the computer* My name's Keramon!
Mike: Is that the little guy you were talking about?
Angelomon: *eyes widen* Y-Yeah, but it digivolved!
Chris: *eyes widen* Holy...
Kevin: Must be at the Rookie level. I'll check it out. *takes out his digivice and scans Keramon, but his digivice reads 'No Digimon Entry Found'* Okay...
Robert: Let me try *scans Keramon, but his digivice reads 'No Digimon Entry Found'* Huh? So...it's not a Digimon? What the hell?
Chris: *eyes widen* Guys... I think this thing's the Supreme Ruler's Ultimate Weapon! The one Darcmon warned us about!
Kevin: I wouldn't doubt it for a second. We should round up the others, before things get worse.
Robert: We tried, but everyone else is busy.
Mike: Well, what else can we do?
Robert: We're just gonna have to deal with this problem ourselves.
*Back at the Pentagon, Agent Anderson was getting frustrated as Keramon had appeared on all the computer screens in the base*
Agent Anderson: That's it, I'm taking the next flight to New York. If it's not gone by then, I will arrest that kid for cyber terrorism!!
Agent Brock: I don't think locking up a child would help prevent the virus, sir.
Keramon: *from the monitor screen* Do you wanna play a game?
Agent Brock: It already feels like a game...
Agent Simmons: *walks up to Anderson with a phone in his hand* Anderson?
Agent Anderson: WHAT?!?
Agent Simmons: *hands Anderson the phone* The president.
Agent Anderson: *sighs* Damn it all... *grabs the phone and puts it to his ear* Yes sir?
George W. Bush: *on the other line* Anderson, what's this about a jellyfish on the web?
Agent Anderson: Mr. President, you have nothing to worry about, I have the best people taking care of the situation sir.
George W. Bush: *on the other line* You better, pal. I don't want anything to happen to the American people because of your little Tamagotchi project.
Agent Anderson: Trust me, Sir, These people are the best. My...liaisons in New York are the ones who have been taking care of the monster sightings there. I'm heading to the airport as we speak and getting on the next flight to New York.
George W. Bush: *on the other line* Good! Remember, Andy, your job is on the line!
Agent Anderson: Yes sir, Mr. President.
*Back in New York, the Heroes and their Digimon pondered on what to do about this new digital threat*
Robert: We've tried deleting and virus scanning, but nothing worked. Anyone else have any ideas?
Kevin: Nope, sorry. Any idea where in the internet Keramon is?
Chris: He's already done with the airport, but I can't tell where he's off to. He could go any other major city from where. Philadelphia, Cleveland, Miami, and even our nation's capitol, god forbid...
Kevin: Washington D.C., genius.
Mike: That's definitely bad news for the whole country. Hell, it might also affect the whole world...
Robert: There must be a way to stop it...
*Meanwhile, at Washington National Airport, Agent Anderson was at the check in, only to see that all the flights to New York City had been either delayed or cancelled*
Agent Anderson: Delayed... Cancelled?
Clerk: I'm sorry, sir, but due to a super virus in the New York airports' computers, all flights have been canceled until further notice.
Agent Anderson: I am the head of a federal agency with orders from the president! And I demand that you put me on a plane to New York right now!
Clerk: I'm sorry, sir, but there's nothing I can do. My hands are completley tied.
Agent Anderson: *frustrated* AUGH!!!
*Back in New York, The Heroes and their Digimon were still pondering on what to do about Keramon*
Kevin: Well, we're not getting anywhere just sitting on our asses, doing nothing.
Veemon: I GOT IT!!!! Send us into the internet so we can fight it!!
Mike: How the hell are we going to do THAT?
Robert: Hmm... This sounds crazy, but...maybe our digivices could do the trick.
Chris: All right, it's worth a shot. I just need to test it our first.
Robert: *takes out his cell phone* Hold on, I need to get Renamon over here. *dials a number*
Chris: *raises an eyebrow* Since when does Renamon have a cell phone?
Robert: Since yesterday. I bought one for her with some of my allowance so I wouldn't have to shout for her all the time.
Kevin: *sarcastically* Oh joy, another round of the waiting game...
*Meanwhile, out in the city, Renamon was high up a building, sitting atop a gargoyle, when her cell phone rang. She then took it out from her mane and answered it*
Robert: *on the other line* Renamon, Listen up, there's a big problem and I need your help. There's this Digimon called Keramon who's attacking the internet. I think he's the Supreme Ruler's ultimate weapon.
Renamon: *eyes widen* I'm coming, Robert! *jumps off the gargoyle*
*As Renamon ran across the rooftops, she could see all the chaos that was happening all over the city*
Renamon: Robert, this Digimon is trouble. All over the city, phenomenon have been occurring and disrupting everything. The city is gridlocked and there have been many car pile ups.
Robert: *on the other line* Even Times Square?
Renamon: Keramon's face is on all the signs, including the Jumbotron, and there are traffic jams everywhere.
*Back at Chris's house, Robert began to look worried as he talked to Renamon over the phone*
Robert: Listen, just teleport over to Chris's place, quick!
Renamon: *on the other line* I am already here.
*Just then, there was a knock outside Chris' bedroom door. Robert walked over and opened it, revealing Renamon standing out in the hallway*
Robert: Good timing, partner.
Renamon: Thank you.
*As she entered the room, Renamon could see Chris tinkering with his digivice, connecting a USB cable to it. Soon after, a pop up window appeared on the monitor*
Chris: Well, we got everyone here. Now let's see if we can send you guys inside the computer.
Kevin: So, we just...SHOOT them with your digivice and they'll be teleported online?
Chris: That's the basic jist of it.
Mike: Is that even possible?
Robert: Well, they ARE data, so it wouldn't be IMPOSSIBLE.
Renamon: Let's not waste any more time. We need to stop this thing before anything else happens.
BlackAgumon: How many of us should go?
Robert: *takes the digivice* I say we should send three of you in, for now. *aims the digivice at Renamon* Hold still, Renamon.
Renamon: All right. *stands perfectly still* I'm ready.
*Robert then pulled the trigger and shot a red beam at Renamon, enveloping her and eventually causing her to disappears bit by bit*
Angelomon: *winces* Ooh! That looks painful.
Chris: All right, who's next?
Kevin: I'll take that. *takes the digivice* Your turn, BlackAgumon.
Kevin: *scans BlackAgumon into the computer* One more Digimon, who's it gonna be?
Angelomon: Uh, I don't think so...
Chris: Yeah, I agree. I don't want you getting hurt.
Veemon: I might as well step in, but only if Angelomon will come if we ever need reinforcements in there.
Chris: *sighs* Okay, fine. Now scan him.
Mike: Gotchya. *takes the digivice* Hold still. *scans Veemon into the computer*
Kevin: Okay, they're online!!
Chris: Now they just have to find Keramon.
*Inside the computer, the three Digimon found themselves diving through the world wide web, passing through various web browsers and internet codes*
Veemon: Does this Internet Super Highway have a rest stop? I gotta go potty!!
BlackAgumon: You should've gone before we left. Just hold it!!
Chris: *from outside the computer* Can you guys hear me?
Veemon: Loud and clear, Chris!
Renamon: Although there is no sign of our foe anywhere.
Chris: *from outside the computer* I think I found his location. I'm emailing it to you right now. But you're gonna need a password in order to get in. Say Angeldust!
Renamon, BlackAgumon & Veemon: Angeldust!!
Chris: *from outside the computer* Okay, you're in!
*Suddenly, there was a bright flash of light, and the Digimon were transported onto a large room with browsers, emails, videos, pictures, and millions of other files going through the room*
BlackAgumon: So this is the internet, huh? Not as fancy as I thought it would be.
Renamon: Joking aside, we need to find that Digimon.
Veemon: But where could he be?
*Just then, Keramon was seen, slurping up data into his mouth like it was a Fruit by the Foot pack*
BlackAgumon: *points at Keramon* Look! There he is!
Veemon: Jeez, he's eating it all that data like it was spaghetti!
BlackAgumon: So what's the plan, Renamon?
Renamon: We sneak up on him...quietly.
*The three Digimon slowly and quietly approached Keramon from behind while he kept eating up data*
Veemon: *whispering* Who should go first?
*Suddenly, Keramon turned his head around and spotted the three Digimon, giving off an evil smirk*
Keramon: *singing* I see you!
Renamon: Attack together! Diamond Storm!!
BlackAgumon: Pepper Breath!!
Veemon: Vee-Knockout!! *rushes towards Keramon and punches him in the face*
*Keramon was quickly bombarded by the relentless onslaught of attacks and was left dazed, beaten and bruised when it was over*
Chris: *from outside the computer* ALL RIGHT!!!!
Robert: *from outside the computer* HA HA!!! We got him on the ropes!!
Kevin: *from outside the computer* Uh, I wouldn't be so sure of that...
*Just then, Keramon's wounds quickly healed as he gave off an evil chuckle at the three Digimon that had attacked him*
Keramon: So, you like to play games, huh?
BlackAgumon: *sweat drops* That doesn't sound good...
*Suddenly, Keramon vanished into thin air, leaving the three Digimon scratching their heads in confusion*
Veemon: Where did he--?
Keramon: *reappears behind Veemon, giving off a wicked smile* Bug Blaster!! *shoots orb-bullets of destructive light from his mouth*
Veemon: *eyes widen* HOLY--!!!
*Veemon tried to dodge the orbs, each going past him. He continued to dodge until a few managed to hit him on impact, one in the face and one on the chest*
Keramon: Heh heh heh heh heh
BlackAgumon: *narrows his eyebrows* Hey! That's pretty rude, pal!!
Renamon: We can't fight in our current state. We need to digivolve!!
Robert: *from outside the computer* Way ahead of you, partner!!
*Back in Chris' room, Robert, Kevin and Mike whip out their digivices, ready to help their Digimon digivolve and battle Keramon*
Renamon: *from inside the computer* Renamon, digivolve to...Kyubimon!
BlackAgumon: *from inside the computer* BlackAgumon, digivolve to...BlackGreymon!
Veemon: *from inside the computer* Veemon digivolve to...ExVeemon!
*Back at the Pentagon, Anderson came back tired and exhausted from his excessive and stressful pacing, wondering what will happen next*
Agent Anderson: Ugh!
Agent Simmons: *walks up to him* Anderson, why are you still in Washington?
Agent Anderson: I don't know what to do about this situation! All the flight to and from New York have been cancelled, I haven't heard from those kids yet, and I'm afraid that they haven't found the damn thing or even tried to stop it.
Agent Simmons: Then you may want to take a look at what's going on right now on the monitors.
Agent Anderson: What do you expect me to se--
*On the many computer monitors, Agent Anderson could see Keramon fleeing from the Kyubimon, ExVeemon and BlackGreymon inside the internet*
Keramon: *from inside the computer* Bug Blaster!!
BlackGreymon: *from inside the computer* Nova Blast!!
Kyubimon: *from inside the computer* FOX TAIL INFERNO!!!!
ExVeemon: *from inside the computer* VEE LASER!!!
Agent Anderson: How did th-- *shakes his head* Never mind! As long as they're able to take out this...thing, I don't care!
*Back in New York, the Heroes witnessed Keramon being bombarded by their Digimon's multiple attacks until there was nothing but a cloud of smoke where it once stood*
Robert: We did it!!
Mike: All right!!
Chris: Hold it! *looks at the screen* I'm still detecting something.
Kevin: What are you talking about? We got him, he's toast!
Angelomon: Yeah! He couldn't have gotten out of that!
*Inside the internet, the three Champion Digimon looked around for any signs of Keramon within the smoke cloud*
Kyubimon: *pause* Something isn't right...
BlackGreymon: Yeah... I can feel it, too.
Keramon: *from inside the smoke cloud* Keramon digivolve to...Infermon!!
*Just then, the smoke slowly dissipated, revealing a very large white and red armored spider-like Digimon with a long neck, yellow spikes on its back, a mask for a face, and had a long red horn protruding from its forehead. This was Infermon, Keramon's digivolved form*
Mike: *from outside the computer* Whoa!!
Robert: *from outside the computer* He's a Champion now!
*Infermon then leapt onto one of the walls, turned its head upside down and eerily stared at the three Champion Digimon*
ExVeemon: What do we do now?
Chris: *from outside the computer* Three champs against one is a cinch. GET 'IM!!!!
ExVeemon: Right! Vee Laser!!
*Infermon suddenly leapt out of the way as the attack impacted on the wall. It then tucked in all of its limbs and its neck into his body, now resembling a large armored cocoon that began to zoom toward the Champion Digimon at lightning speed*
Kyubimon: Dragon Wheel!!
BlackGreymon: Nova Blast!!
*The two attacks impacted on Infermon's armored surface, but none of them affected it. Soon, the three Champion Digimon were knocked over in midair as the armored cocoon zoomed in-between them like a rocket*
Kyubimon: UGH!!! Nothing's working!
BlackGreymon: He's STRONGER than a Champion!!
Infermon: *uses a wall to jump back towards the Digimon* Spider Shooter!! *rapidly fires shells of a terrible, destructive energy from the muzzle inside of its mouth*
BlackGreymon: Quick, get out of th--
*Before they could do anything, the lasers had hit the trio on impact, as the blasts created a larger vapor of smoke, surrounding them all*
*Back in Chris' room, the Heroes stared in shock at what had just happened to their Digimon*
Robert: *eyes widen* No!!
Chris: *eyes widen as he goes pale* Oh God...
Kevin: I don't get it, how can one Digimon defeat three Champions?
Chris: *types on the keyboard and does an analysis on Infermon* Um, guys... That thing isn't a Champion... He's an Ultimate! Look at it's power levels!
Mike: *raises an eyebrow* Wha? That's friggin' nuts!!
Robert: How could he have bypassed the Champion level and go straight into Ultimate?
Chris: *shakes his head* I have no idea...
*Back inside the internet, Infermon opened up a warp hole in the floor, in means of escaping*
Infermon: I'm looking for the programmer, don't interfere!! *disappears through the warp hole*
*Just then, the cloud of smoke began to dissipate to reveal that the three Champion Digimon had reverted back to their Rookie levels and were in pretty bad shape*
Kevin: *from outside the computer* BlackAgumon, are you okay? Speak to me, buddy!
BlackAgumon: *dazed* Don't take me out, coach...
Robert: *from outside the computer* Renamon, what about you?
Renamon: Urgh! I'm okay... Sort of...
*Back in Chris' room, Angelomon jumped back onto Chris' head and faced the three other Heroes*
Angelomon: WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING!!!!
Kevin: You have anything in mind?
*Just then, a pop up window appeared with the word 'HELLO' being repeated over hundreds of times*
Robert: What the hell? Is this some sort of spam message?
*Back at the Pentagon, Agent Anderson was trying to look for Infermon's location after it disappeared. However, he received a pop-up message with the word "Hello" repeated over and over*
Agent Simmons: He's gone! The Digimon is no longer in New York! But now, we've got all this.
Agent Anderson: Thank you for the update, but I can CLEARLY SEE IT MYSELF.
*Just then, Anderson's cell phone rang from within his coat pocket*
Agent Anderson: Anderson here. What is it?
Infermon: *on the other line* Hello, did you program me? Heh heh heh heh heh...
Agent Anderson: *eyes widen* It's him... *drops his cell phone*
Agent Simmons: Who, Infermon? How?
Agent Anderson: He must have bugged every piece of technology in the tri-state area.
Agent Simmons: JUST the tri-state area?
Agent Anderson: Could be more than that. The whole country, maybe. Hell, the whole world, if it was that fast.
*Back in New York, hundreds upon thousands of different phone numbers began to appear all over Chris' monitor, alerting the Heroes and their Digimon that Infermon was dialing each and every one of them calling just about everyone in the entire world*
Mike: What exactly is he trying to do?
Robert: He's calling those numbers, that's what. But why?
Renamon: *from inside the computer* The most obvious assumption is that he is looking for someone or something.
Robert: But who?
Chris: Didn't he say something about a programmer?
Robert: *eyes widen* Yeah...he did.
Kevin: I think we're all on the same page of who the programmer is...
*Meanwhile, inside the internet, Infermon was traveling through streams of data, dialing every phone number in the world, in hopes to find his creator*
Infermon: *dials another number* Hello, did you program me? Heh heh heh heh!!
???: *on the other line* Why, yes...I did.
Infermon: And who are you?
???: *on the other line* I am your Master, your Supreme Ruler.
Infermon: I am no one's slave...
Supreme Ruler: *on the other line* If that's true, then why were you looking for me?
Infermon: To express my 'gratitude' after releasing me into this new world, leaving me to do whatever I please...
*Infermon then opened up a gateway, leading to a room filled with numerous codenames like "Eagle-Eye" and "Devil Dog". He continued crawling through the area until he saw two large codes resembling launch sequences*
Supreme Ruler: *on the other line* Excellent...
*Meanwhile, inside the oval office of the White House, President George W. Bush sat at his chair, staring out the back window. Suddenly, the 'red' phone on his desk began to ring. He then turned around and picked it up*
George W. Bush: Hello.
Secretary General: *on the other line* Mr. President, we have a situation, sir.
George W. Bush: What is it?
Secretary General: *on the other line* Two nuclear missiles have just been launched!! We don't know how, but the're heading straight for New York city!!
George W. Bush: *eyes widen* WHAT?! Stop them, disable them, anything! Do whatever it takes!
Secretary General: *on the other line* We can't! There's some sort of virus jamming the lines!!
George W. Bush: *hangs up* Damn techno bugs! *picks up the phone and dials Anderson*
*Meanwhile, back at the Pentagon, Agent Anderson nervously looked around for any signs of Infermon or any of the other Digimon, until he heard the phone ring*
Agent Brock: I've got it. *answers the phone* Yes? *hands phone to Anderson* Its for you...again.
Agent Anderson: *takes the phone from Brock* Anderson here.
George W. Bush: *on the other line* WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON AT YOUR END, ANDERSON!?! TWO NUCLEAR MISSILES HAVE JUST BEEN LAUNCHED AT NEW YORK CITY BECAUSE OF THIS VIRUS MONSTER OF YOURS!!!!
Agent Brock: *raises an eyebrow* Hmm?
Agent Anderson: *eyes widen* WHAT?!? We had no idea that happened!
Agent Simmons: *raises an eyebrow* What, what's happened?
George W. Bush: *on the other line* I want an evacuation of the city immediately, Anderson, and unless you stop those missiles with your resources, now, IT WONT BE JUST YOUR JOB ON THE LINE!!!! *hangs up*
Agent Simmons: Anderson?
Agent Anderson: That thing just launched two nuclear missiles... They're heading for New York as we speak.
Agent Simmons: *eyes widen* Oh God...
*Back in New York, the Heroes were thinking of how to try and stop Infermon. Just then, the phone rang again*
Robert: It's probably Anderson again.
Angelomon: I'll get it! *picks up the phone* Hello? *pause* Okay. It's for you. *hands the phone to Robert*
Robert: *takes the phone* Hello? *pause* Huh? *eyes widen* What?! Are you sure? *pause* Oh my god...
Chris: What's wrong now?
Robert: *hangs up and faces the others* Infermon hacked into the military's computer systems... Two nuclear missiles were launched and are heading right for us.
Kevin: *eyes widen* WHAT?!!
Mike: Doesn't the military have any control over them?
Robert: No, Infermon jammed all their signals. But Anderson said they fired a counter-missile to try and stop them.
Kevin: How the hell are we gonna find out if the counter-missile blows them up or not?
Robert: He didn't say.
Mike: Well, what do we do now?
Robert: *pause* Chris, send Angelomon in there.
Chris: *typing away at his computer* Working on it, Rob...
Robert: *looks to Angelomon* You think you can do this, Angelomon?
Angelomon: I don't know... But I'll try my best.
Robert: *smiles* Good luck in there, little guy.
Chris: Be careful, Ange...
Angelomon: I promise, Chris.
Robert: *hands Chris the digivice scanner* Here you go.
Chris: Let's take this virus down. *scans Angelomon into the internet* There, you're online!
*Back inside the internet, Angelomon materialized before Renamon, Veemon, and BlackAgumon*
BlackAgumon: Not much of reinforcements, is there?
Veemon: At this point, I'd like a nice, long vacation.
Robert: *from outside the computer* Guys, listen! If Infermon was able to launch those missiles, then that means he's probably in Washington D.C!
Chris: *from outside the computer* I'll have to send you all to the D.C server.
Renamon: We have to be ready to take him down. Who knows what else he might be up to?
*Just then, A warp hole opened up on the wall near the four Rookie Digimon*
Angelomon: I guess we're going after that wasciwwy wabbit!!
*Renamon and the others quickly dove into the portal and began traveling through the web at the speed of light*
*Back in Chris' room, the rest of the group were worried about the missiles heading right towards them, wondering if the counter-missile would affect both of them*
Robert: I hope they get there in time
Mike: All we HAVE is hope, Rob.
Robert: *pause* Call Anderson.
Robert: Tell him that our Digimon are coming his way to kick Infermon's ass!
Chris: Good idea. I should also ask for the code numbers of those missiles, too.
*Meanwhile, back at the Pentagon, Agent Anderson sat in a c hair with his face in his hands, worried over the impending crisis*
Agent Simmons: This is gonna be worse than 9/11...
Agent Anderson: I only pray that those kids are able to stop him before the inevitable happens...
*Just then, the phone rang. Anderson lazily reached over and answered it*
Agent Anderson: Wan's Hong Kong Gardens, Mr. Wan speaking...
Chris: *on the other line* Hey! Our Digimon are coming to the D.C servers to take out Infermon! Don't think we've abandoned you just yet!
Agent Anderson: What? Well, what do you think you can do?
Chris: *on the other line* They're gonna fight it, that's what. At the same time, I'll try changing the missiles' guidance system. That is, if your counter-missile fails to stop them. But I'm gonna need the codes.
Agent Anderson: The codes? Yes, yes! The codes! One second!
Agent Simmons: I'll check the counter-missile's progress. *goes over to a computer monitor to watch*
Agent Anderson: You do that, I'll look for those codes.
*Back in the internet, the four Digimon zoomed through the internet super highway, on their way to the D.C servers*
Angelomon: Ooh... Techno wallpaper!
Renamon: Focus, Angelomon. The fate of our friends and the entire world lies in our hands.
BlackAgumon: How will we know we're in the military's computer system?
Renamon: I'm not sure...
Angelomon: I wonder if we can find out about the aliens in Area 51 when we get there...
BlackAgumon: FOCUS, ANGELOMON!!!
*Just then, the four Digimon spotted Infermon climbing up a wall. It then stopped and eerily stared at the four*
Kevin: *from outside the computer* Hey, there he is!!
Angelomon: What's the plan?
Veemon: Run away?
BlackAgumon: We can't just run away! We have to stop him.
Renamon: Let's get him!
Robert, Kevin, Mike, & Chris: *from outside the computer* Digivolve!
Renamon: *digivolves* Renamon digivolve to...Kyubimon!!
Angelomon: *digivolves* Angelomon digivolve to...PlusAngelomon!!
Blackagumon: *digivolves* BlackAgumon digivolve to...BlackGreymon!!
Vveemon: *digivolves* Veemon digivolve to...ExVeemon!!
Kyubimon: Dragon Wheel!!
Infermon: *takes the attack, but laughs it off* Nice try! Spider Shooter!!
Kyubimon: *dodges the attack* Getting slower, Infermon?
Infermon: Silence, germ!
BlackGreymon: Germ?! You're the only germ around here, pal!!
PlusAngelomon: Try this one on for size! Plus Beam!!
Infermon: *dodges the attack* Ha!!
PlusAngelomon: Aww, dang!
Infermon: *tucks in limbs* Torpedo away!! *shoots toward PlusAngelomon*
PlusAngelomon: Whoa, Nelly! *dodges Infermon* Phew! Missed me!!
BlackGreymon: Nova blast!!
ExVeemon: *flies toward Infermon* Vee-Laser!!!
Infermon: *dodges all attacks and slices at ExVeemon* Hya!!
ExVeemon: *recoils in pain* URG!!!
Mike: *from outside the computer* ExVeemon!!
*Back in Chris' room, Chris was still waiting for Anderson to give him the codes for the missiles*
Mike: This is getting us nowhere!!
Chris: Give him time, there isn't much for us to do.
Robert: They'll have to digivolve to Ultimate!
Chris: *puts down the phone* Right!
Robert, Kevin, Chris, & Mike: *hold out their digivices* Digivolve, Ultimate!!
*Back in the internet, the four Champion Digimon began to digivolve in front of Infermon*
Kyubimon: *digivolves* Kyubimon digivolve to...Taomon!!
BlackGreymon: *digivolves* BlackGreymon digivolve to...BlackMetalGreymon!!
PlusAngelomon: *digivolves* PlusAngelomon digivolve to...Dogremon!!
ExVeemon: *digivolves* ExVeemon digivolve to...Flamedramon!!!
Infermon: I thought I told you not to interfere...
Flamedramon: Well, we didn't have a choice when you launched those missiles at our city!
Dogremon: Not so tough when it's evenly matched, eh Spidey?
Infermon: You're going to regret the day you were hatched!
Mike: *from outside the computer* GET THAT CREEP!!!
Robert: *from outside the computer* WIPE HIM OUT!!!!
*The Ultimate Digimon then suddenly charged toward Infermon, yelling out their battle cries as they zoomed in on it*
Flamedramon: Fire Rocket!!
Infermon: *chuckles and leaps upwards, dodging the attack* Hya!!
BlackMetalGreymon: Giga Blaster!!
Infermon: Grrr... *twirls around, evading the missiles*
Kevin: *from outside the computer* Damn it!!
Dogremon: Butcher Knife!! *is able to slam into Infermon with his attack*
Infermon: GRAH!!! I'll tear you into bits!
Robert: *from outside the computer* Get him, Taomon!!
Taomon: With pleasure! *summons her brush* Talisman of Light!!
*Infermon once again tucked in his limbs and charged toward Taomon. She tried to move, but was too slow as Infermon brutally tackled her*
Robert: *from outside the computer* Oh no!!
Taomon: Thousand Spell!!
Infermon: *is hit but not hurt* Nice try! *drives Taomon into a wall as hard as possible* HA HA HA HA HA!!!!
Taomon: *in great pain* AAAHHH!!!
Infermon: Spider Shooter!! *blasts Taomon with the attack, surrounding her in a cloud of smoke*
*Back in Chris' room, Robert stared in terror at the incredible damage Infermon was inflicting on Taomon*
Robert: *grabs the computer monitor* TAOMON!!!!
Chris: This is just horrible
Kevin: I don't get it... They're all Ultimates. How can he be so strong?
Mike: Maybe all the data it consumed made it stronger.
Robert: Taomon, are you alright?! Say something!!
*Just then, the cloud of smoke dissipated. Robert looked on in horror as he saw Taomon scathed all over. Her entire body was bruised, beaten and bloodied, and her clothes were all torn up and covered in scorch marks. She looked like she was hit by a train*
Robert: Oh no! What's wrong with her?
Kevin: She isn't moving, that's for sure.
Chris: She's not looking to well either. *does an analysis* Oh no...
Robert: What is it?
Chris: It's Infermon's special ability. It's able to disrupt other Digimon's data, simply by touching them.
Mike: Kinda like the Midas touch?
Chris: Yeah, and it leaves her open to any attack. C'mon, Foxy, wake up!
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* Hey, hey!!
Chris: *picks the phone back up* Anderson? You have the codes?
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* Good news and bad news. The bad news is that the counter-missile stopped abruptly and crashed into the ocean.
Chris: Damn... Wait, what's the good news?
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* I have the codes for the two missiles.
Mike: Well then, hurry!!
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* G3-672-DF0182-B1LL-C0CH-RLD.
Chris: On it! *types away the code on his computer*
Kevin: Come on, Chris, before we all become smouldering piles of radioactive ash!!
Robert: But Taomon...
Chris: Rob, unless I can stop these two missiles, we're all gonna be in her position.
Robert: *pause* Just hurry, please...
*Back at the Pentagon, Agent Anderson watched the monitor, looking at the progression of the two missiles heading for New York. Sweating like a madman, he was reluctant that the group would be able to stop the missiles. Suddenly, he saw one of the missile icons flashing and beeping, indicating a change in its course. It continued to flash until it was gone from the screen. He checked the status report to see that the missile had been shut down. He saw that the missile was making a crash landing in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean*
Agent Anderson: One down, one to go...
*Back in New York, the Heroes saw a similar result from Chris's computer, showing that one of the missiles was disabled and was making a crash landing in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean*
Chris: Well, that's one out. *raises the phone to his ear* Anderson, what's the code for the second missile?
Agent Anderson: *on the other line* Okay, it's-- Huh? What? No... No!!
Chris: What's wrong now?
Anderson: *on the other line* That damn monster scrambled the codes! I don't know how to descramble them! I'll try and get someone down here to do it, but for now, TAKE HIM DOWN!!!
Robert: *a tear slides down his cheek* Taomon, please answer me...
*Robert then looked at the scanner, with his eyebrows lowered. Suddenly, he snatched it from Chris' hands and scanned himself into the computer. The others watched as the scanner dropped to the floor*
Kevin: *pause* Okay, I wasn't the only one who saw that, right?
Chris: What the hell?!
*Back inside the internet, the Ultimate Digimon and Infermon stared in disbelief as Robert was seen floating down from a beam of light*
Flamedramon: Robert? How?
Dogremon: What the-?
Robert: *puts his hands on Taomon's shoulders* Taomon... I'm here.
Infermon: *chuckles evilly* Looks like I have a new toy to play with...
*Meanwhile, back at the Pentagon, Agent Simmons watched the screen as Robert tried to wake up Taomon*
Agent Simmons: Anderson, look!
Agent Anderson: *walks over and stares at the screen* What in the holy hell?
*Back inside the internet, The other Ultimate Digimon could only watch as Robert floated in front of the badly injured Taomon, putting a hand to her cheek*
Kevin: *from outside the computer* Robert, are you crazy!?
Chris: *from outside the computer* We don't know what that could DO to you!
Mike: *from outside the computer* Get out of there right now!
Robert: No, guys... I can't leave her. *turns back to Taomon* Remember when you were in the hospital after Tyrannomon nearly killed you? I stayed by your bedside as long as possible.
*Back in Chris' room, the other Heroes stared in awe and listened to Robert's touching words*
Kevin: I give him credit for sticking with his partner, but it's not exactly the best time to do so.
Mike: I never knew he had really cared for her...
Chris: I hope that he'll be able to snap her out of it.
*Back at the Pentagon, everyone in the room looked at the scene with awe*
Agent Anderson: I've never seen anything like this before... Brave kid...
*Back inside the internet, Taomon still remained silent as Robert continued talking to her*
Robert: And remember when Myotismon was about to wipe us out? I didn't leave you for an instant. Don't you see? You're not just my partner, you're one of the best friends I'll ever have. If it weren't for you, I'd be in jail or dead on the streets. You're the best thing that's ever happened to me, please don't die... I love you.
*Slowly, but surely, Taomon twitched slightly, groaning as she was coming back into reality*
Taomon: Don't...worry, Robert. I...don't intend to. *de-digivolves back into Renamon, still looking badly bruised*
Renamon: I love you too, Robert... I won't fail you.
Infermon: *growls* Deletion is imminent! Soon, the remaining missile will hit your city, turning it into nothing more than a gigantic smoldering crater! And then...I will have won!
Robert: *looks up at Infermon, determined* No! You or the Supreme Ruler will never win! Not as long as me and my friends are still alive to fight you and your kind! We'll never give up, we'll never be scared, and we'll never FAIL!!!!
*Suddenly, a bright light erupted out of Robert's pants pocket. He put his hand down and pulled out the source of the light, which happened to be his new crest, as a strange symbol, resembling a sash twirled around a sword appeared on it*
Robert: My crest...
Infermon: *eyes widen* Wh-What is this?!
Renamon: It's a symbol, Infermon... A symbol of hope... Hope that we will win this day. And Robert will lead us into victory.
Robert: Leadership... *presses the crest into his digivice* MEGA DIGIVOLUTION!!!!
Renamon: *digivolves* Renamon, Warp Digivolve to...
*Renamon suddenly began to glow with a bright light and began to reform into a slightly more human shape. Parts of her body shined until the light faded, revealing golden armor. Long silver hair began to flow from the top of her head, rapping itself into a braided coil with a golden ring tied to the end. Her head remained animalistic, but morphed into a more mature looking face, adorned by a golden helmet and a red bandana around her neck. Purple gauntlets formed on her arms as well as a long golden staff. This new entity twirled her staff above her head and struck a pose*
BlackMetalGreymon: *eyes widen* Whoa!
Flamedramon: *eyes widen* I don't believe it...
*Back in Chris' room, the group looked at the new digivolved figure with awe, as Chris grabbed the Digital scanner from off the floor and scanned its image*
Chris: Renamon digivolved into Sakuyamon. A Mega Level, Data type, Shaman Digimon. Her attacks Spirit Strike, Amethyst Mandala, Talisman Sphere, and Twin Blades of Beauty and of Truth.
Mike: Shamen, eh? Cool.
Kevin: If she's a Mega level Digimon, then she might be able to take down Infermon!
*Back inside the internet, Robert and the other Digimon were amazed at Renamon's latest digivolution*
Robert: I did that?
Dogremon: Looks like it.
Sakuyamon: *turns to Infermon* See Infermon? This is the true power of what humans and Digimon can do when they work together. Robert's leadership has shown us that.
Infermon: *growls* Spider Shooter!!
Sakuyamon: Talisman Sphere!! *creates a spherical crystalline barrier that is charged with magical energy, deflecting the oncoming attack*
Flamedramon: Allow me to assist you. Fire Rocket!!
BlackMetalGreymon: Giga Blaster!!
Dogremon: Don't leave me hangin'! Butcher Knife!!
Infermon: AAAHHH!!!! *is hit by the oncoming attacks, but not destroyed*
*Back in Chris' room, the Heroes heard a loud rumbling noise. Kevin ran toward the window, opened it, and stuck his head out*
Kevin: You better tell them to do it fast, 'cause in about one minute, we're all dead!
*Out in the city, The missile could be seen, flying over the New Jersey border and straight toward New York. Everyone in the city who spotted it, immediately went into a panic and began trying to evacuate*
*Back at the Pentagon, everyone was eyeing both the computer screens and the monitor, worried about the outcome of the fight and the missile's approach to New York. Anderson was showing his sign of anxiety and fear, as he took a bottle of Jack Daniels and chugs it down. He barely had any hope for the situation*
Agent Simmons: Sir, the missile will impact! I repeat, the missile wil limpact!
Agent Anderson: You don't I know that?! There nothing we can do! *pause* It's all up to them now...
*Back inside the internet, Infermon chuckled at the thought of the missile heading closer and closer to it's assigned target*
Sakuyamon: You can't win without a fight, Infermon!
Infermon: Very well
I'll just gather all my energy and just destroy you with a single shot! *begins to glow bright yellow* Yes... YES!!!
Robert: *eyes widen* Oh no!
Sakuyamon: Don't worry, Robert. *holds her staff and closes her eyes* It will be all right.
Infermon: Heh! Accepted your fate, I see? Good, this'll make it so much easier for me, then!
Sakuyamon: *a golden light bursts from her* Spirit Strike!! *two pipe foxes emerge from the light and head towards the missiles online targeting systems*
Infermon: *eyes widen* Oh...
*The energy foxes circled around Infermon, spinning faster and faster. As they continued to spin, the halo-like circle began to grow into a large dome, enveloping Infermon from the inside. He could barely do anything to get out. None of his attacks could penetrate the force. Soon, the energy shield was beginning to shake and vibrate, feeling like an earthquake, as the dome was beginning to emit large bolts of energy from the inside. All Infermon did was stare at the group, as his eyes showed a sense of fear*
Sakuyamon: Connection: terminated.
Infermn: AAAAHHHH!!!! *explodes into a stream of data*
*Back in new York, The missile was seen dropping out of the sky and crashing into the Hudson River, creating giant waves of water from the impact. The people of New York cheered with relief and victory at this incredible sight*
*Back at the Pentagon, everyone cheered as the missile was cancelled from making impact. Anderson stopped halfway from chugging his liquor, seeing the end result of the chaotic event. He took the bottle and threw it away*
Agent Anderson: Anyone have any coffee? Preferably any decaf?
*Back in the internet, Robert hugged Sakuyamon with all his might, happy that things were back to normal and that the city was safe*
Robert: Sakuyamon, you did it!! You're a hero!!
Sakuyamon: It wasn't just me, Robert. We did it, together, as partners.
BlackMetalGreymon: *annoyed* Hey, what about us?
Dogremon: Yeah, what do you think we are, chopped liver?
Sakuyamon: I did say "we", didn't I? When I meant "we", I meant all of us.
Flamedramon: All right, just making sure.
Robert: *looks up* Hey Chris, think you can get us outta here?
Chris: *from outside the computer* Sure thing, boss. Just hang on a minute.
*Back in Chris' room, Chris grabbed the scanner, hooked it up to the computer, and clicked the "extract" button, which caused all the Digimon and Robert to be transported back into the room. Most of the Digimon returned to their rookie forms, except for Sakuyamon*
BlackAgumon: Phew!! What a rush!!
Veemon: Can you believe how much of a fight he was? I thought we were gonna be goners!
Mike: Hey, Sakuyamon, love the new look... Strangely attractive.
Sakuyamon: Flattery won't exactly get you anywhere, Mike. *smiles* But I will admit that this is very cool!
Chris: There's a word I never expected you to say.
Robert: Well guys, how are we gonna explain THIS?
*Meanwhile, back at the Pentagon, everyone went back to their normal business. Anderson was trying to sober up on coffee, as he was on the phone with the President*
Agent Anderson: Yes sir, the crisis has been averted. Both missiles have fallen into the ocean. The last one was spotted in the Hudson river. No casualties though, but some large tides are to be expected. *pause* Yes sir, the virus has been eliminated, sir. Our technicians are working on fixing the data that was lost earlier today.
George W. Bush: *on the other line* We can't keep this project a secret anymore, Anderson. Who knows how many more people will get hurt or even die because of this?
Agent Anderson: Yes, sir. But I don't think the public would take the whole "monsters from another world" seriously.
George W. Bush: *on the other line* We have no choice, Anderson. The lives of the general public are at stake. If it weren't for the help of those kids and their monsters, millions of innocent lives would've been lost. We can't risk it again... We need to tell them.
