ABCs of Nostalgic Digimon: M is For…

Digimon World 2003 was a big part of my childhood. so it’s no surprise that there are so many nostalgic Digimon in that game. We’re a Digimon World 2003 blog now, by the way.

M is For…


nostalgic digimon maildramon

I mean, just look at this Digimon, how majestic is Maildramon?! I’ve mentioned that he’s my favourite underrated Digimon that starts with ‘M’, but I couldn’t just not talk about Maildramon again when it comes to nostalgia!

It’s been a few days since I last posted an ABCs of Nostalgic Digimon as I’ve been distracted with other posts – such as cosplay guides, game reviews, and, of course, two podcasts – but I’m really excited to talk about Maildramon (again).

This is one of the first Digimon we see in Digimon Tamers; a Maidlramon is chasing Culumon, and then starts fighting with a Dark Tyranomon who evolves to Metal Tyranomon and defeats him.
This turns out to actually be a card battle – minus Culumon – between the goggle kid of the season (Takato) and his friend (Kazu). A great beginning to a season and a great showcase of the setting of the season.

However, Digimon Tamers is not why I have such a nostalgic emotion for Maildramon – I actually recall him most fondly because of his appearance in Digimon World 2003. I remember being in Mobius Desert a lot, so Maildramon is a friendly face whenever he pops up.

Of course, because he was in Digimon World 2003, Maildramon was gvien some pretty cool recolours.

Maildramon is also a Digimon that is one of the alternative armour level Digimon that shows up as a monster of the week – Maildramon evolves from Tailmon with the DigiMental or miracles. I’m not sure where the blue mullet-esque hairstyle comes from, but it looks pretty cool.

I really ought to rank each armour evolution one day, because I have strong emotions to a few of them – Rinkmon is the best, if you’re curious, but Maildramon would surely rank pretty high up.

So who is the most nostalgic Digimon that starts with the letter ‘M’ in your opinion? Let us know!
