Template:Notability Template:Primarysources The Olympus Twelve (オリンポス十二神 Orinposu Jūnishin?) are a group of twelve Mega-level Shaman Digimon[1] modeled after the Roman version of the Twelve Olympians, the "Dii Consentes". The group is primarily a facet of the Digimon Card Game, although Merukimon is a major character in Digimon Data Squad anime[2] and the four then revealed members appeared in the game Digimon World Data Squad. Neptunmon, Mervamon, and Apollomon appear in Digimon Xros Wars, although not stated as members of the Olympus Twelve.

The Olympus Twelve possess power rivaling that of the Royal Knights, the guardian deities of the Net, and although they defend the same domain, they are shadowy beings who maintain a neutral standpoint towards the incidents that arise within the Digital World.[3]

Digimon Xros Wars

In Digimon Xros Wars, Apollomon is the strongest of the Seven Death Generals. Originally, he was a kind-hearted ruler of the Bright Zone until the Bagra Army invaded. During the fight, Apollomon was wounded before Bagramon used a virus to corrupt Apollomon and made him into his servant.

Marsmon is familiar with all the ways in the world to fight dirty without weapons, but at the same time he possesses absolute self-confidence regarding friendship through one-on-one combat. He makes use of basic wrestling techniques, but he is strongly concerned about victory and glory, so when push comes to shove he won't hesitate to use concealed weapons like his "Toria Knuckle" or "Metal Korutonosu". However, Marsmon exhibits his real power with his bare hands and feet.[3]

One of the Olympus Twelve, Merukimon is a Digimon god of genius who boasts of being the fastest in the Digital World. He is able to outstrip the fastest runner, becoming impossible to perceive with the naked eye, so he is said that all images of Merukimon in records and documents are just afterimages. He hates to stay in the same place and is always wandering the Digital World, making him hard to find at times. Merukimon excels in Shamanism, and his favorite knife "Aztec" is able to slice through space.[6]

Though having an extremely short physique, she possesses superhuman strength to freely wield her huge blade "Olympia", which is as large as her body.

One of the Olympus Twelve, he is a Digimon god of the sea which presides over all marine Digimon. Though the Scalemail which covers Neptunemon's body is made of "Chrome Digizoid" converted into the "Blue Digizoid" which excels in agility, he prefers to remove it when possible due to his poor speed in the water. Neptunmon constructed a castle to reside within, the "Abyss Sanctuary", at the far depths of the sea, so that only those who can withstand the water pressure of the extreme depths may enter.[8]

In Digimon Xros Wars, Neptunmon is the leader of the Bagra Army's Island Zone invasion force.
