Chapter 1: the Journey of Flamedramon Begins

The digital world, is truly an outstanding world, where creatures called Digimon reside, all of varying sizes and power scaling reside. And in this world of magnificent creatures, there are some Digimon that live in towns or out in the wilds, living nice peaceful lives. Other Digimon reside in isolation, either because they despise company, or because they prefer the peace and quiet. Then there are those that have wicked intentions, where they enslave other Digimon to rule over them, or to conquer the world itself to hold untold power in the palm of their hands. But these wicked and foul Digimon are always met with opposition, either by Digimon that fight them as heroes, or as partners to humans that work together to stop these evil Digimon.

And this story follows one such Digimon who fights for not only the good and safety of the digital world, and its inhabitants, but all worlds that he would visit if he could.

Far off in the northern territories, where a town filled with Palmon, Floramon, and a few Blossomon, with a Cherrymon leading them as they fended off an invading force of Vegiemon, RedVegimon and Zassoumon. All of these wild, and violent plant Digimon being led by a Zamielmon acting as their commander. The two forces of plant-type Digimon have been in a state of deadlock, as the invading force wasn’t able to push too far into the town they sought to take over, but the towns inhabited don’t have the strength to full repel the enemy forces.

“Poison Ivy!” a group of Palmon said as their tendrils extended outward towards a trio of Vegiemon.

“Sharp Leaf!” the trio of Vegiemon proclaimed as each one throws three sharp red leaves from their backs. The leaves collided with the tendrils, cutting, and slicing them, forcing the Palmon to withdrawal them. “Now get them!” the center Vegiemon shouted as they all hopped towards the Palmon who cowered in fear.

“Thorn Whip!” the Vegiemon looked to their left, and saw large thorn covered vines, with hungry looking flowers on their ends coming towards them. and knocking them into a wall on the other side of the lane. The Palmon looked see the vines retreat and found a Blossomon coming towards them.

“Are you guys alright?” the large flower monster asked the smaller Digimon.

“Yeah.” One of the Palmon said as she, and the others rushed to the larger Digimon’s side. “If you didn’t come when you did those Vegiemon would’ve defeated us.”

“Don’t get to comfortable now ya hear.” The group turned to look down the lane when a new voice announced itself, and what they saw was a pair of RedVegiemon standing all on their beefy red vines. “Ya’ll better surrender this town to us, or we’re going to have to make things ugly.” The one on the right said as he, and his fellow RedVegiemon smirked at the pair.

“Thorn Whip!” Blossomon shouted as he launched his attack at the invading Digimon.

“Have it your way then.” The sour plant monster on the left said before raising one of his arms, along with the other doing the same. “Chili Pepper Pummel!”

Both RedVegiemon’s sent out their long beefy vines out, clashing with Blossomon’s own vines. The thorny vines of the Ultimate continued to lash out against the sour plant’s own tendrils, all elongated limps snapping, and cracking against one another like whips.

While the battle between the Blossomon and RedVegimon went on, near the center of the town Cherrymon was leading his town in a keeping up their defenses, using the other two Blossomon as the heavy attacks, while the Palmon and Floramon used hit-and-run tactics to disrupt the enemy, and provide support for the main unit. But the onslaught of Vegiemon, RedVegimon and Zassoumon was just too much. a group of Vegiemon lead by a RedVegimon and Zassoumon were chasing after a group of injured Floramon, as they tried to get back to main force, but their injuries were hampering their movement.

“We got’cha now!” the Zassoumon said as he leapt at the group of Floramon, followed by his fellow invaders.

“Cherry Blast!” a barrage of small glowing red cherries came soaring through the air, striking the invaders with small yet powerful multi-explosions, knocking the RedVegimon and Zassoumon away, while the Vegiemon got fractured and turned to pure data. “Don’t just stand there, hurry up and get over here!”

Cherrymon called out to the injured Digimon, getting the Floramon to re-collect themselves and running towards the town’s central plaza. But before the Floramon could even reach the plaza a barrage of red arrows came raining down upon them, turning them into fractal codes and destroying them. Cherrymon, and both Blossomon, and the main force of the town watched in horror as their friends were destroyed, but their shock was short lived as it quickly turned to fear, as another barrage of arrows came soaring towards them. Acting quickly both Blossomon used their Thorn Whip moves, along with Cherrymon using his Vine Attack move, to shieled not only themselves but the rest of the towns Digimon by swatting away the arrows. And after a minute of arrows being knocked away, the barrage ended and the three ultimate plant Digimon retracted their limbs, and saw the main force of the invading force come towards the plaza, with Zamielmon at the forefront.

“Well color me impressed.” Zamielmon said as he clapped his hands in mock praise. “I’m surprised you were able to block my Arrow Lance attack, and with such skill as well.”

“Why are you attacking our town Zamielmon? There’s nothing worthwhile out here, so why don’t you take your Vegiemon, and their sub-species and leave us in peace.” Cherry said as he makes his way to the front of his township, putting him between them and the enemy force.

“At first glance this town is not all that special, but with this town being so far out of the way and not on any maps, we can use it as a secret base when we conduct our raids to gather supplies for the Wood Spirit Army.”

“So that’s it! You’re going to use our town to conduct raids on other poor unfortunate towns, destroy them and take what rightfully belongs to them!”

“Give the Ultimate a prize, he got it in one shot…just like, this.” the demon man Digimon said as he held his left hand out.

“Snipe Headshot!” a large red arrow covered in a thin outline of yellow energy then shot out at blinding speed, already more than half way towards Cherrymon, who was unable to react in time to make a counter attack. But before the arrow could reach its intended target, a sudden called out which caught everyone off guard.

“Fire Rocket!”

A sudden barrage of fireballs came raining down from the sky, striking the arrow and smashing it into the ground, dispersing it as small patches of fire linger on the ground. then the barrage of fireballs started to tilt towards Zamielmon, striking down all of the lower-level plant Digimon, causing them to cry out in panic as most of them were fractal coded, while a small portion of them were only badly injured. As for Zamielmon, he was not royally pissed off as his body smoked and had small wisps of fire on it.

“Who did that?!” the ultimate cried out, only to receive a flaming punch to the face from a nose-diving Digimon.

“Flame Fist!” the townsfolk watched as Zamielmon was sent flying back, face smoking and burning, as they saw the attacker land on the ground. and the moment they all saw the attacker, the townsfolk looked relieved, and even cheered.

“Flamedramon is here!” the Palmon and Floramon said as they cried out in happiness, as a well-known heroic Digimon came to their aide.

“Flamedramon! How…how did you know we were in trouble.”

Cherrymon asked as he made his way over to the Armor Digimon, but was stopped when the hero held out an armored claw. That’s when he, and the rest of the town saw Zamielmon come rushing over to Flamedramon, with the large red arrow on his back held like a short spear. Cherrymon and his town then watched as Flamedramon and Zamielmon, started duking it out in hand-to-hand combat. While Zamielmon was technically stronger than the Armor Digimon, Flamedramon was faster, and far more agile so he was able to dodge the Ultimate’s attacks no sweat.

“Try this on for size!” Zamielmon growled as he tosses his arrow up into the air, and quickly brought out the iron bow strapped onto his back. “Bow Cutter!”

“Flame Fist!” Flamedramon countered all of the Ultimate’s attacks with his bow, with flaming armored fists meeting each swung bow strike.

“Why are you sticking your nose into this Flamedramon?!” Zamielmon shouted as he continued to lash out, unable to push back the Armor Digimon.

“Your just a wandering vagabond with no allegiance to any faction! So why get in our way!”

“Because…” Flamedramon said as he knocks the bow out of Zamielmon’s hands, before coiling back his right arm, still ablaze with fire. “I don’t want to see any more innocents, being destroyed!” the Armor Digimon then shot his right out forward, claws outstretched as they and the palm glow bright hot yellow.

“Express Claw!”

The claw slams squarely into the Zamielmon’s chest, where a powerful explosion occurred, punching right through Zamielmon’s chest armor and right out his back. Retracting his clawed gauntlet the Armor Digimon watched as the Ultimate-level Digimon falls backwards, and watched the remnants of the invading force just looked upon the sight with awe and bewilderment.

“If you don’t want to end up like your general, go back to wherever it is that you came from, and never show your faces around here again!” the remnants of the invading forced shrieked in terror as they hopped, and bounced their way out of the town, while the townsfolk cheered for being saved. While Flamedramon visibly relaxed as he gives off calming exhale.

“Flamedramon. I can’t thank you enough for coming to our aide in our time of need.” Cherrymon said as he and other members of his town walked over to the Armor Digimon.

“I’m just glad I was able to make it in time.” The fire Digimon said as he looked at the large tree Digimon. “If I didn’t catch the rumor of an armored force coming here, I’m sure that I wouldn’t made it in time.”

“Well I’m just glad that it’s all over.”


Everyone quickly looked to where Zamielmon laid, seeing his body more than half deteriorated into fractal codes. But his head, right chest and arm remaining, with his hand outstretched with a black data sphere covered with spikes in his palm. Which was then fired at Flamedramon, and when the Armor Digimon tried to deflect the attack, the black sphere merged with his arm and quickly started to spread all over his body.

“I was saving this little gift from my master, but…I’M MORE THAN HAPPY TO TAKE YOU WITH ME WITH IT!”

Zamielmon then started to manically laugh as the last of his disappeared into fractal code, while Flamedramon’s entire body turned pitch black, with dark purple electricity pulsating around him, while also glitching and warping about. Then with a last cry of what sound like distorted pain, Cherrymon, and the townsfolk watched as Flamedramon being engulfed by a large pillar of black static, and violet lighting. A moment later and everyone then watched as pillar collapses in on itself, despairing, and showing that the Armor Digimon was no longer, there.

~~Present Time – Equestria~~

The town of Ponyville is a nice and peaceful town, with ponies that go about their lives, blissfully enjoying their peaceful lives. But today, the normality of peace was changed to one of excitement. Near the center of the town, just a few blocks from the town hall, a large bakery called Sugarcube Corner stood proud and tall, looking like an oversized dessert platter. And currently the building was being surround by a crowd of ponies, all trying to look through the door, and the windows as they tried to get a good look at creature that Rarity, and Spike brought to the town. From what the ponies could tell, the creature looks like a blue skinned dragon, with fiery armor, and right now it was sitting at a table eating pastries while finishing up telling a story. A story on who he was, where he came from, and what he thinks happened to him to end up in Equestria.

“…and that’s when Rarity and Spike brought me here.”

Flamedramon said as he grabs a piece of cherry pie, with an un-armored claw before taking a bite of the pastry. For any pony that was able to hear Flamedramon’s story, they were all astonished by everything he had just told them, and after looking at the Digimon’s body, seeing his muscles and well-toned body it was hard to deny what he had just told them.

“That’s an incredible tale Flamedramon, and very honorable of you to come to those other Digimon’s aide.” Twilight Sparkle, the towns local librarian, said as she finished writing every bit of detail of everything that the Armor Digimon had just said.

“Heck yeah it was!” Rainbow said as she did a flip in mid-air. “I would’ve love to see how the whole thing played out.” The Digimon finished munching away on his piece of pie before speaking up.

“My world is not exactly the most peaceful environment there is, especially right now as many dark factions are acting up.” the Digimon then looked up to the pegasus.

“If all you wanted to do is sight see, then you better be ready to defend your very life.” The ponies gulped in fear after hearing that little warning, and while Rainbow tried to play it cool, she couldn’t stop beads of sweat from rolling down her brow.

“Is it really that bad?” Fluttershy asked as she hid a little behind her long pink mane. The Digimon nodded his head as he grabs a muffin, and just stares at it.

“Aside from the roaming forces of dark armies, there are Digimon that simply fight each other to gain more power, and care not for who they hurt or destroy to get what they want.” He then looked at the ponies at, and around the table. “Trust me, you’re better off not going to my world.”

Ponies started to quietly murmurs to one another in how they would not like to go to the digital world, or meet one of these more selfish and brutal Digimon’s. Even Twilight’s circle of friends thought it sounded like a bad idea to go to the Digital world, if it was possible. That’s when Applejack looked up to the Digimon, as he takes a bite of the muffin in his hand.

“So Flamedramon…are you gonna…try to find a way back to your own world?” the Digimon swallowed the bit of muffin in his mouth, and just stared at the remaining amount for a moment, before speaking up.

“I would like to return, so that I can continue to help wherever I can. But…I doubt that it’s possible.”

“Well. Maybe not.” Twilight said as she conjures up a blank scroll. “If you want Flamedramon, I can ask my teacher if she can find a way back to your world.” the Digimon seemed to be in deep thought as he considered the question.

“…if it’s not too much trouble, then please.”

Twilight nodded and started to write down a message to her mentor, and once she was done, she rolled up the scroll and tied it to everything else that Twilight had just written down. Flamedramon then watched as Twilight asked Spike to send everything to her mentor, and with a puff of green fire everything turned to smoke, which the Digimon and the other ponies watch fly out of the confectionary, and off into the distance.

“Well now that is taken care of, do you want us to show you around town Flamedramon?” Twilight asked the Digimon, where Pinkie Pie swooped in and stood on top of her lavender friend.

“Great idea Twiliy! OH! And I can play tour guide!” Pinkie then pulled out a hat that has, tour guide on it, and placed it on her head while pulling out a what looks like a map of the town.

“Let’s get a moving ponies, time to show our cross-dimensional new friend the sights!” The Digimon couldn’t help but give a short chortle and a smile as he looked at the pink mare, and her friends.

“I’d like that.”
