ABCs of Dumb Digimon Designs: Q is For…

I did not even look at a list of Digimon for too choose this one and don’t any of ya’ll disagree with me here.

Q is For…

Yes, he has a design that isn’t a dumb rock, but this is the form we primarily see him as for the 2.5 episodes where he shows up. His design is so dumb he spends most of his time making evil Digimon that are moderately threatening (mainly Diaboramon evolutions and various Vamdemon forms) fight in his place – Quartzmon himself, well, floated ‘menacingly’ for two episodes.

His design is not only dumb, but in terms of his existence in the show is just dumb in general.
Digimon has an issue where, in at least half of the seasons, the ‘big bad’ only shows up in the last few episodes and is (arguably) never foreshadowed prior – Apocalymon, BelialVamdemon, D-Repear, Yggrasil, and, with Xros Wars’ third arc, Quartzmon. This is by far the worst out of the five – Apocalymon was in the first season (where ideas were still being formed on the franchise) and many say was actually foreshadowed subtly (I doubt it though, Digimon is never subtle about hints, BelialVamdemon is Vamdemon and was given a reason to be there, D-Reaper was written into the plot and was there for more than two episodes, Yggdrasil was given the only ‘good’ clip show to explain her motives, her existence was written into the whole season, and she was at least referenced prior to showing up, and then have a dumb rock who shows up, doesn’t kill Tagiru, and looks like a failed emoji design.

So, what’s the dumbest Digimon design starting with ‘Q’ according to you?
