If you follow me on twitter on seen my Digimon season 1 and 2 reviews you may know that I am not a fan of Devimon. I just think the charter is overrated, don't get me wrong their are things I do like about him like his design being a devil and he would look even cooler as MarineDevimon, and in season 2 he would make more a better charter, but his plain (turn the Digimon evil) seems to been done a million times before, also HOW THE HELL DID HE BECOME MARINEDEVIMON? and since he became Icedevimon he went from being a threat to just a more powerful villain of the week. Also in Digimon Xros Wars this episode and episode 11 was aired during the same time, it was a 1 hour special. The Episode begins with our heroes in the lake zone, named that because of all the lakes and a rainbow barcodes to replicate our aurora borealis. while walking they see many Digimon frozen, when Mikey hears a noise like the one when he heard when Shoutmon was almost dead. Mikey see some Pawnchessmon crying over the fact that their leader Knightmon is dead, Mikey goes and try and save Knightmon like he did with Shoutmon, this means that the Fusion Loader has some healing powers, also this Knightmon is a bit different from older Knightmon's being that the Fusion Knightmon has a cape. The castle is soon under attack by IceDevimon also I may have complain about Devimon but I like the Fusion Devimon because he sounds like he is doing a Christopher Walken impression. after they make IceDevimon retreat Mikey then meets princess Beastmon (who is a cat and dose what a cat dose) Knightmon notates Mikey to be caption of her royal guards But Christopher has also been notated too. Mean while at IceDevimon fortress Laylamon (also the US version made her less BUSTY) in his fortress and discuses how they will defeat the fusion fighters. Back at the castle Mikey and Christopher are talking who will get the code crown first, and we see Mikey back story on why he is so hard headed. when he was a kid he saw a kid and who told him to get lost and he did but came back to see the kid got "SICK", it is mellow drama seeing the kid getting sick and better the next day but in Xros Wars I think the kid die, Ice Devimon army comes and attack the castle again and Christopher then summons MetalGreymon, and he is awesome. also his attack Giga Blaster is the same attack as season 1 MetalGreymon. Mikey realize IceDevimon is not hear he was hidden in the ice. soon IceDevimon get more power from absorbing the Ice Gotsumon and the day is soon saved when Mikey Digi fuse Shoutmon and Dorulumon.
Overall I give "The Rival Champions" a 4/5 a bi step up from the last episode. I loved the charted that Mikey has for being so reckless and wanting to save people, being a Greymon fan I enjoy seeing fusion MetalGreymon, the Lake Zone is my favorite Zone so far just because it is the most unique so far. but what all of you saw coming why it didn't see getting a 5/5 was the obvious IceDevimon, I just think that Devimon is overrated and that is all. Next time on Digimon Fusion Episode 11 "Ice to See You, Angie!", a episode tittle with a bad pun, Shoutmon X4 get a new sub form, and the Fusion Fighters have to fight a giant purple penguin, and no I am not making that up.
