With the branching digivolutions already established in Digimon, it is possible that Agumon would obtain a new Mega form, but at Tentomon’s expense.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Episode 35 of Digimon Adventure: (2020), “The Glowing Angewomon”, now streaming on Crunchyroll.
Digimon Adventure: (2020) has had a lot of surprises in store for viewers of late, from Pegasusmon appearing a season before its original series counterpart to Darkknightmon’s true identity. But perhaps the most surprising is the lack of any new Mega Digimon form since Taichi and Agumon unlocked WarGreymon in Episode 30.
So it is with great joy that fans have noticed hints in the Episode 36 preview that AtlurKabuterimon is close to reaching Mega Level … If only the Digimon Encyclopedia segment had not shown an alternate Mega for Agumon. First.

Once again, the main character Taichi and Agumon are stealing the spotlight from the rest of the cast with the mocking appearance of BlitzGreymon. While his part in the history of Digimon Adventure: (2020) is still unknown and will surely be the source of theories, discussions and fan art, the Mega form of poor Tentomon may have the utter misfortune of being featured in the same episode.
The preview reveals that Koshiro and Kabuterimon manage to meet up with Taichi again and end up in a battle against MetallifeKuwagamon, with Agumon and Tentomon becoming MetalGreymon and AtlurKabuterimon, respectively. From this setup, it’s easy to see one or both of them digivolve to the Mega level and take down the seemingly powerful Digimon.
It makes sense for this version of the series that Koshiro, as the reboot’s original deuteragonist, and Tentomon would be the next pair to hit Mega level. While not as explicitly shown as BlitzGreymon, during the preview, AtlurKabuterimon’s horn begins to glow gold, hinting at his next form, HerculesKabuterimon. Originally debuting during Digimon Adventure TriHercules Kabuterimon is a powerful-looking insect-like Digimon that would be perfect for taking on MetallifeKuwagamon; However, it is also easy to see how BlitzGreymon’s appearance could easily overshadow this crucial development.
Not only would this be another branching evolution like the one we saw with Pegasusmon, but a new, never-before-seen animated form could easily steal the viewer’s attention from the golden beetle and Koshiro. Also, since Hercules Kabuterimon is technically Old news, it would make sense for the episode’s plot to revolve around Taichi and Agumon again to justify the new form.
While we are in the universe, there is no doubt that the new ways would be exciting for everyone, we cannot help but feel a little sorry for the rest of the chosen ones. From Takeru and Patamon, who technically I haven’t even reached the Ultimate level yet, to Sora who has been with Tai every time he has called WarGreymon without even a innuendo from Piyomon’s mega, Hououmon, showing up. And now, Koshiro and Tentomon, who may actually be on the verge of getting into their Mega form … only to have that development maybe ignored in favor of the shiny new BlitzGreymon.
