ABCs of Dumb Digimon Designs: Z is For…

When I started this list, I didn’t expect for the list to finish today, my birthday. 

Not a very long list, but here’s a Digimon who was the star of a lot of shit posts on the internet a few years ago. So I’m celebrating the end of this list and my 26th birthday with a shit post, I guess.

Z is For…

Zassoumon

The English releases that feature this Digimon label him as ‘Weedmon’, which makes sense as he’s a little dirtier than Vegiemon, but the internet took the definition of ‘weed’ in a very different manner.So I’m not so much calling his design dumb as I am the fact that somebody chose to call him ‘Weedmon’ without considering the double meaning and the particular design of the spikes of leaves stemming from his head.
As I said, short list, but to be fair, I’m not a huge fan of Vegiemon’s design in general – but I guess that’s the point.

Zassoumon is a fairly early Digimon; I first saw him in Digimon World and then again in Digimon World 2003 as a card I kept on opening. In fact, I believe I found out about his existence before Vegiemon, similar to a lot of species variations who appeared in Digimon World. 

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